7 years as of this month…it’s funny because he was 31 when we started dating, and now I’m 31. 🙂 So I finally caught up to him!

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
A few months, not counting that we may have seen each other at rallies or Mensa things and not known each other really

Who asked who out?
Well, funny story. I kind of tricked him into going on our first sort-of date. I sent out a mass e-mail to a bunch of people to go to the renfair with me, because I’d happened upon some free tickets. I knew the renfair was up by him, and I knew everyone else on that e-mail list was busy that day. 🙂 But our first real official date, he called and asked me out.

Where was your 1st date?
Unofficial: Bristol Renaissance Faire
Official: My apartment to watch Harry Potter on DVD, on my birthday. 🙂 I’d hurt my back at horseback riding, and I didn’t feel like going out anywhere. We ordered pizza and stayed in.

How long did it take after your 1st date to get serious?
Heh. Not long. I spent the night at his house the weekend following.

How long after you started dating did you become engaged?
3 years

How long were you engaged before you got married?
A little over a year

Whose family do you see more?
His; they live closer, though still pretty far away.

Do you have any children?
Nope, and it’s staying that way!

What about pets?
Pancake 🙂

Did you go to the same school?

Who is the most sensitive?
I don’t know. We each have our touchy points. It just depends on what we’re talking about.

These days, it’s probably Moe’s. 🙂 Or, for sit-down, we end up at Friday’s pretty often.

Where is the furthest you’ve traveled as a couple?

Who has the craziest ex’s?
Hmm…I don’t know. It might be a tie.

Who has the worst temper?
Oh me, totally. I’m a maelstrom waiting to happen.

Who is more social?
I’d say him. I’d be a total misanthrope if it weren’t for him. I’d just play XBox 360 all the time on my own. Then again, he’d probably say that I’m more social, and that he’d just be at the casino all the time if it weren’t for me. When I was single, I was more social, but now, I’m just happy to stay home.

We rarely cook. If there’s cooking to be done, I do it.

We’re both stubborn, just about different things.

It depends. Probably me in general, but it really depends on the day and situation.

I do, but it’s nothing to write home about.

I do most of the time, but since he’s home more, he helps out with it when I’m swamped.

Who is better with the computer?
I am, but he could be just as good…he just doesn’t have the patience to figure stuff out when he knows he can ask me. 🙂

Who picks where you go to dinner?
Depends on who has a preference. Most often, neither of us have a preference and we end up kind of swinging an axe.

Who wears the pants in the family?
Well, today I’m wearing a skirt, so I’ll say him.

Who has a better sense of humor?
He does, I think. I’m sarcastically funny, and he’s just witty and silly and willing to make an ass of himself to amuse others. He makes me laugh often.

Who eats more sweets?
Him, though they’re all sugarfree. 🙂

Who cries more?
Me. I bawl at movies.
