I thought it could be fun to write up the answers to this Valentine’s Day survey that is making the rounds. So here we go!
How did you meet?
We met at a church Bible study and also briefly at this young adult volleyball event.
I made him wait a long time! I said I needed to work on some things first (and I did! Probably could have worked on even more in counseling). But we did go to Sonshine together and then we weren’t together. About a year later though we went to Carlos State Park and had a long talk. He then took me to Cherry Berry once he decided he wanted to give it a go again!
How long have you been together?
We started officially dating June 2012 and were married by December! We met January 2010.
I’m older by 5 months.
Who was interested first?
Probably him. Although, the second time around I was.
Who is taller?
Who said I love you first?
I said it kind of out of habit (how I usually end conversations with family) on the phone when I called him from Greece. He didn’t hear it though!
Me. I’m usually wanting to know things or have things done ASAP.
Neither? Not in terms of like crying at things.
Neither. Ha. Maybe him by a little bit. Although, I can get loud in a fight.
Me. I don’t like giving in or not “winning.”
Who falls asleep first?
Him. Though, I totally sleep more.
Who is the better cook?
Both! We love cooking together. He’s better at doing exact things and I’m better at improvising.
Better morning person?
Neither. We both can get up. He likes getting up early more than me.
He’s better at driving in snow and with backing up and parking. I’m better at paying attention to stop lights, signs, and knowing how to get places.
Who is the funniest?
Where do you eat out the most of the couple?
We love to try new places! Some places though are Birchwood, Pizzeria Lola, DJs, Pike & Pint for dessert nachos, and lots of ice cream places.
Who is more social?
He is! I kind of hit my limit earlier.
Who is the neat freak?
I wish I was. But I’m not.
How long did it take to get serious?
Not long! We both went in pretty clear about intentions and saying we didn’t want to date forever. I probably was more serious first. We were also older and wanting to be married!
Who plans date night?
Both of us! I usually come up with ideas and we decide together.
Who picks where you go to dinner?
I’m usually pickier about what I want but we decide together.
Who has more tattoos?
Me. Though, he probably wants more.
Did you go to the same school?
Nope! He was homeschooled and I went to public school. We went to different colleges too.
Who drives when you are together?
He usually drives.
Where is the farthest you two have traveled?
South Africa!! Twice and hopefully more travel in the future.
