I am posting this for the following reasons: I love surveys, I love talking about us, and I had nothing to blog about at the moment. I am hesitant to post stuff like this on facebook though to a bunch of judgmentalist…loving coming up with new words! And people are probably not interested. Anyhoo…I’m supposed to answer these questions about Richard, that sweet guy I married and get to hang out with every day. So here it is
What are your middle names?
Richard’s middle name begins with an “S” and he would die if announced the rest of that to the world. My middle name is Marie. People used to assume I was spanish 90% of the time especially when my maiden name was Crews. Gah! If those people could have only met me. LOL!
How long have you been together?
We have been married 4 years but together 6.
How long did you know each other before you started dating?
About 6 months
Who asked whom out?
I guess he asked me out. He even cooked me dinner on our first date and even held my hand that first night. I knew I wouldn’t be holding any other mans hand after that date.
How old are each of you?
I’m 31 and Richard is 39.
Whose siblings do you see the most?
Mine. She lives across the woods from us and I work with her. His brother lives a few states away.
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Work, I think, just in general. We both have jobs great jobs, but they require a lot of time and stress. It can really take a toll on a relationship. And deciding on what money goes towards what is sometimes difficult but we really try to work well together on that spectrum of marriage.
Did you go to the same school?
Nope. He went to University of Arkansas and got a degree in Management. I went to AR State and got a degree in English Literature to teach. Of course he’s 8 years older so we would have never met in college anyhow. And I was in like 4th grade living in Oklahoma when he was a senior in high school here in Arkansas! LOL!
Are you from the same home town?
Nope. He grew up here in Sheridan and I grew up way out in Oklahoma.
Who is smarter?
I’m definitely more book smart oriented in all English type things but he’s great at math. We both did well in school. We both have a lot of common sense.
Who is the most sensitive?
Definitely me. I can tune up and cry or get mad over just about anything within seconds and be over it just as quickly.
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
Chili’s. We love us some salsa.
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Probably to his brothers home in Wilmington North Carolina. That was a LONG drive.
Who has the craziest exes?
Hmm…we don’t talk much about past relationships. I definitely had some tendencies to date bad boys and he definitely didn’t date any good girls.
Who has the worst temper?
There are those people who just let stuff not bother them? Those people who never get worked up over stuff that happens? Who never want to win the fight or argument? One of us is that kind of person. And that one person? Is not me.
Who does the cooking?
I do most of the cooking, but he always helps me clean up.
Who is the neat-freak?
Me again. I can’t stand clutter, junked up, filthy homes. Cleaniness is next to Godliness, right?
Who is more stubborn?
We are both terribly stubborn. We can wage some serious debates.
Who hogs the bed?
Me…I like the middle.
Who wakes up earlier?
This one floats. Right now he has to get up earlier but that could change in 6 months. Who knows!
Where was your first date?
He cooked me dinner and then we watched “The Notebook”.
Who is more jealous?
I’m not sure. I don’t really get jealous and if he does he never shows it.
How long did it take to get serious?
It got serious from days one. We loved each other immediately.
Who eats more?
Definitely Richard. He can eat a big dinner and then have a bowl of ice cream afterwards. Yuck!
Who’s better with the computer?
Richard. I can do some things like ctrl, alt, delete and hold the button until it turns off.
Who drives when you are together?
Me on long trips. If you let me behind the wheel you better not need to potty.
Who does the laundry?
Both of us. I tend to get it going and fold it. He will put it away while I start up another load. Or sometimes I do it all or he does it all.
So there you go! Way more information about us than you were ever interested in. Now go answer the questions about yourselves so I can be nosy
