How long have you been together?
1 year, 4 months, and 40 days.
How long did you know each other before you started dating?
We met June 28th and started dating December 25th, so...6 months.
Who asked who out?
When we first met, I made the first move asking if he'd like to hang out, but when it came to becoming a "couple," no one really asked anyone. It was kind of just decided.
Did you go to the same school?
Nope! We lived on opposite sides of town, but had many mutual friends and probably actually ran into each other a few times before we really "met."
Who is the most sensitive?
Definitely me! I cry at everything. Happy things, sad things, angry things. You name it. But Josh is also a very caring and emotional person, just in a totally different way.
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
We love eating at Chipotle, Buffalo Wild Wings, Panda Express, any great Chinese place, and of course...Carlyle! But we don't really eat out too much lately now that I cook in our teeny kitchen.
|Terrible quality phone pic, but this is at Carlyle.|
Where is the farthest you've traveled as a couple?
We drove from Chicago, IL to Dayton, OH this past New Years weekend, but since we were long-distance for so long, traveling TOGETHER was never really possible. We're going to Hawaii in June though, so that'll be our first real vacation together. =)
|We traveled a lot...to each other.|
Who has the craziest exes?
I would say that Josh is the only one with a "crazy" ex, but I did have an ex who tried to work his way back into my life quite a few times.
Who has the worst temper?
Again, it's me. Do I need to take a chill pill or what?
Who does the cooking?
Josh makes some darn good tilapia and is a smoothie expert. But when it comes to legitimate recipes and real cooking, it's me.
|I love this recipe!|
Who is more social?
Definitely Josh! He's great at starting up conversations with random people and being at ease in a new place, but I tend to be a little shy at first. It takes me a while to warm up, but once I get comfy...watch out! I'll talk your ears off!
Who is the neat freak?
Most definitely me. Josh is your typical guy. He leaves dishes in the sink, towels rumpled on the hook in the bathroom, dirty (and clean) clothes all over the floor...the list could go on. But I love everything to be organized and clean.
Who is the most stubborn?
Oh my word. Joshua. Once he gets an idea in his head or has an opinion on something, rarely does it change. Me? I normally get an idea, battle it out, and eventually give in.
Who hogs the bed?
I don't think either of us hog the bed, but when it comes to covers? Joshua definitely wins that one.
Who wakes up earlier?
Josh is almost always awake by 0430, sometimes earlier and I used to sleep til 9 on days I didn't have class. Nowadays, I wake up when he does, partly because I feel guilty for sleeping in when he's got to be up for work and partly because when he gets ready in the morning he turns the lights on, which wakes me up big time.
Where was your first date?
That's debatable. If our "first date" = the first time we hung out then it was at Red Robin and then seeing Transformers 2. If our "first date" = the first time we hung out as a "couple," it's be a party at a friends' house.
How long did it take to get serious?
We were VERY emotionally involved before we even started dating, so about Labor Day weekend of the year we met. When did I know he was the one? 2 months after we started dating officially I went out to visit Josh. That's when I knew. =)
|The love of my life.|
Who does the laundry?
ME! If I ask Josh to do any laundry at all it sits in the washer or dryer until I do it.
Who drives when you're together?
Typically, Josh drives because he knows the area better. Lately though, I've been driving more when we're together so I can learn the area.
|Driving from IL to OH after we got engaged!|
Who is the first to admit they're wrong?
Josh. He hates fighting (not that I don't either), so more often than not he'll be the one to tie up loose ends and apologize.
Who wears the pants in the relationship?
I'd say we both wear them equally. Josh is the head of our household, so he makes most of the final decisions when it comes to major things like expensive purchases and such. But little things are more my expertise, like how the kitchen will be organized or what activities we'll do on our honeymoon. He's the logic, I'm the organizer. We work nicely together.
Who eats more sweets?
Hm...this could be a tie. We both like certain sweets, but we're trying to eat healthier and cut sweets and salts out of our diet (or at least minimize them).
Wasn't that fun? I think so. =) I'd love for you to do a couple's survey so I can learn more about who you are as a couple.
