Couple's Q+A

How long have you been together?
We've been together for over 7 years now and married for almost 6 (come May 15th).

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
3 weeks if you count the days we conversed back and forth online, but only a few hours in person.

Who asked who out?
Well, I sent him a friends request on MySpace back in the day and then I also suggested that we meet in person on New Years Eve, although he was the one who asked me to be his girlfriend as the night drew to an end.

Did you go to the same school?
Negative. G went to school in South Carolina, while I was down here in Florida.

How many kids do you have / want?
No kids as of yet. Once he gets his AS degree in a couple years, we'll more than likely start trying. We both want to wait until our early 30's (we're both 26 at the moment). Two would be nice, but three is our max!

Who is the most sensitive?
Yeah, that would be me. I was way more sensitive whenever we first got married, but he has toughened me up over the years!

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
We really enjoy trying new places, but Chili's tends to get a lot of our business. It seems to be our go-to when we can't decide.

Who drives when you are together?
We split it evenly. If he drives there, I'll drive back and vice-versa. It's only fair.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
I believe that would be our trip to the Poconos with a group of close friends shortly after we got married.

Who has the craziest exes?
Me, hands down. He didn't date much, but I'm sure I'd have him beat on crazies regardless!

Who has the worst temper?
I'm going to say he does. I tend to hold things in whereas he lets his feelings be known from the get-go, which isn't necessarily a bad thing! At least he lets me know from the start + we can communicate better. He's calmed down a lot though.

Who does the cooking?
Unless breakfast foods, pizza or chicken strips are on the menu, it's all me. I don't mind since I love cooking + trying to recipes.

Who is more social?
It's pretty even, actually. I used to be mad shy (I was really unsure of myself), but I really love socializing / talking to people now. He has always been good with conversing with others (or at least since we've known each other).

Who does the laundry?
I do, although he does help out whenever I ask him to.

Who is the neat freak?
He would say himself. Don't get me wrong. I love things nice + tidy as well, but I'm more lax about it than he is.

Who is the most stubborn?
We both are mutually hardheaded sometimes.

Who hogs the bed?
We both stay on our sides for the most part, although I'm sure he'd rat me out and say that I hog it. Ha!

Who wakes up earlier?
Me! His sleep schedules are normally all over the place. Sometimes he isn't able to fall asleep until the wee hours of the morning. I try to be in bed no later than midnight most nights.

Where was your first date?
We went to a handful of places. He met me at the mall, then we went to the park to walk around / talk, went to see a movie (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), and ended our night watching fireworks on Clearwater Beach.

How long did it take to get serious?
Two weeks together, that's all it took (did anyone catch that Dear John reference) haha. No, but really. We were serious a couple weeks into chatting with one another online. We said 'I love you' only three days after we started dating, and he proposed to me after four months. It was a whirlwind romance, but we knew we wanted to be together and it's worked for us.

Who eats more?
G. That man has a beastly appetite! But, then again, so do I sometimes. I just don't see where he puts it all.

Who is the first one to admit when they’re wrong?
I'll say myself just because I try to keep the peace / move on quickly. We never really keep arguments going for long anyway. And once something has been settled, it's dead. We try not to bring up past failures / faults / arguments into new disputes.

Who eats more sweets?
There's no doubt that he does. I crave salty + spicy things the majority of the time.
