Ronnie Ortiz-Magro famously warned his costars not to fall in love at the Jersey Shore, but things seem to be working out just fine for Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi.

"We thank Jersey Shore for helping us find them because I wouldn't have been with Roger [Matthews]," Farley, 25, said during a recent visit to Us Weekly's New York City offices. "We hold our relationships close to us and that's why they're so successful."

Polizzi, 24, feels the same way about her beau of one year Jionni LaValle. "It's meant to be!" she gushed. "We're lucky to have found guys that we have found."

How did Farley and Polizzi realize their relationships were so solid?

"Our men would still be doing what they're doing now if it wasn't for us," Farley explained. "They're not dating us for JWoww and and Snooki -- they're dating us for Jenni and Nicole."

Jersey Shore airs Thursday at 10 p.m. EST on MTV.
