Me and My Love

Two of the bloggers I read did this a few days ago and I thought it would be kind of fun to do too. Thanks to Heather and Linda for posting!

What are your middle names?

Mine is Marie, his is Robert.

How long have you been together?

Since July of 2007.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?

We met in February of 2004.

Who asked whom out?

Andrew did. He never really "asked me out", but since we'd known each other for so long and we both knew we liked each other he just went ahead and kissed me. Or tried to. That was in September of 2007 and when he tried I sort of said no although he knew I really wanted to so just went ahead and did it. I was really nervous because I had never been kissed before, shameful to admit, but true. We were even closer after that and eventually in July 2008 he tried again. I wasn't stupid that time and went with it. I wish he would have tried again sooner, but alas.

How old are each of you?
I will be 23 in 11 days and Andrew will be 23 in October.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Andrew's brother since I am an only child.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
School. We only get to see each other on the weekends and when Andrew surprises me and comes down for a visit.

Did you go to the same school?
No, unfortunately. Even though in the long run being apart has taught us how to work through many things which I suppose is good in the long run. Our schools are 65 miles apart, so it has been very, very difficult at times, but we only have a few months left.

Are you from the same home town?
No. Andrew was brought up in Federal Way and I still live in Maple Valley, about 20 miles away.

Who is smarter?
Definitely Andrew. He is the hard worker in school and really tries where I just do enough to get by. He is always reading and truly has an interest in what he's learning. I'm just here for the really expensive piece of paper.

Who is the most sensitive?
Hmmm, probably me. Although both our feelings get hurt very easily. I tend to take things more personally than he does I suppose.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Red Robin! I love that place! And it's about a quarter mile from the movie theater we go to so that helps!

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Philadelphia, NYC and Washington D.C last summer.

Who has the craziest exes?
I'm a tad embarrassed to admit that I don't have any so I'm just going to go ahead and say Andrew. 

Who has the worst temper?
That would definitely be me. I tend to get mad easily and give "the look" easier than I get mad.

Who does the cooking?
We both do. Andrew always tries to help when I'm cooking. I like to be a little more inventive sometimes and get tired of eating the same stuff so he is always supportive when I'm preparing something a bit out of the usual.

Who is the neat-freak?
That would also be me about things in the house, Andrew about cars. His car is always tidy and clean while mine generally always needs to be washed. I am a neat freak about things like laundry being put away, the bed made and that sort of thing. I can't stand clutter.

Who is more stubborn?
Hmmm, I'm going to have to say me again. When I have my mind set on something I generally make sure I get it. Andrew is quite a bit more easy going that I am and luckily, tolerates me.

Who hogs the bed?
Neither. We sleep really close together so generally use a small portion of the bed.

Who wakes up earlier?
Usually me. Andrew claims that he needs a full 8 or more hours of sleep every night where I'm good with 6.

Where was your first date?
Hmmm, I guess we haven't had any "real" dates. We usually just plan something. It's not like we ask each other out on dates. I guess it would be to a Mariners game about 12 days after we started "dating". I use "dating" loosely because it's never really felt like that to me. It seems like it's just always been us and we've always been together.

Who is more jealous?
Probably me again (this thing isn't making me come off too good, is it?). I tend to always have this thought in the back of my mind that Andrew is going to find someone better than me to be with. I also hate it that he has had a few girlfriends before me and he is my only boyfriend. That thought drives me up the wall.

How long did it take to get serious?
Not long at all. I've known since before he tried to kiss me for the first time that he would be the one I will marry. I think that's why the terms "dating" and "boyfriend" bug me. It's always seemed so easy and natural. Like the whole time we've known each other was the dating period. Since we actually started dating it's like it's just leading up to getting married. I know I'm not explaining it well at all, I just don't know how to fully put into words what I feel for him.

Who eats more?
He usually eats more during a meal, but I’m the one who snacks pretty much all night long.

Who does the laundry?
I usually put the clothes in the washer and get them started and all that and Andrew will help me fold and put things in the dryer.

Who’s better with the computer?
He is better with all the technical stuff, but I am the one who does more online like blogging and Twitter and all that although he does have a Twitter account now too!

And it's over. I feel like I haven't even somewhat given you a glimpse of who we really are, how great my love for him is and what our relationship consists of. I guess this is better than nothing, I just don't want anyone to get the wrong idea from just these questions. Then again, I have all of about 3 readers, so am not overly worried about it.

If you feel so inclined, feel free to this for you and your significant other!
