What are your middle names?
Patrick and Paige; I like mine, he hates his
How long have you been together?
3 years in March
How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Technically we went to high school together. He remembers me but I don't really remember him. So, I'll say we started dating immediately after meeting on Myspace 3 years ago.
Who asked whom out?
I asked him where he was bartending via email on Myspace. He was bartending at a "guest only" pool so I couldn't visit to finagle free cocktails. He then convinced me to let him buy me a drink instead.
How old are each of you?
28, however I am 7 months older
Whose siblings do you see the most?
Mine. His brother lives in New Jersey and doesn't travel to the West coast as often. I have a sibling on the east coast as well but because I live so close to my parents I get to see him a lot more often and my other brother just moved back to town. Yippee for me!
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
Hmm. We don't really argue but there are definitely things that are more stressful than others. I suppose anything to do with splurging financially is rough. We have a hard time telling ourselves no.
Did you go to the same school?
We went to the same high school for 2 years. I lived in my own world at the time and he was busy dating every girl in the choir and theatre departments…
Are you from the same home town?
Yes-ish. He is born and raised in Las Vegas and I moved here when I was 10 years old. It is the place I always refer to when speaking about growing up.
Who is smarter?
I have more education but he retains information far better than me. At some point he needs to go back and finish college, not that it will make him smarter per say. I suppose he is probably smarter but he is also more of a smart ass so I'll say we're an even match here.
Who is the most sensitive?
We are equally matched here as well. I am definitely more sensitive when it comes to arguments or relationships but he is far more sensitive when it comes to relating to movies and songs. On more than one occasion I have watched him shed tears over a cheesy teeny-bopper movie. Too cute.
Where do you eat out most as a couple?
When I'm not pregnant, sushi is our favorite dining out splurge. Only a few more weeks until we get to stuff our faces with raw fish! Yowser!
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Bora Bora on our honeymoon, it was the most romantic and beautiful trip I have ever taken. It was a complete surprise that he planned and I couldn't imagine a better place to head off to after a wedding.
Who has the craziest exes? Me.
Who has the worst temper? Me again. JB doesn't tend to get angry. If he gets mad he definitely doesn't yell. I have the occasional temper tantrum. The last resulted in my dragging gigantic furniture cardboard boxes through the house and throwing them onto the front lawn. Not my finest moment but at least we don't live our lives on reality tv. The only time I have to relive it is in my mind's eye…
Who does the cooking?
This is an equal distribution. We can both cook, JB tends to make things up and combine ingredients on a whim. I definitely stick to the recipe and follow directions exactly.
Who is the neat-freak?
Me more than he is but neither us are "freaks" about it unless people are coming over to visit
Who is more stubborn?
There is probably a reason why our son's name will be spelled with a "Z" instead of an "X" although I'd like to think I just brought him over to my school of thought on that particular decision.
Who hogs the bed?
Hannah. That would be our basset hound.
Who wakes up earlier?
Definitely JB. He regularly goes to sleep hours after me and wakes up prior.
Where was your first date?
Starbucks for coffee
Who is more jealous?
How long did it take to get serious?
We were serious right away. I told my mom I was going to marry him 3 weeks after our first date. She suggested we wait a year to marry so we waited 13 months from our initial coffee date.
Who eats more?
He eats more in quantity and I eat more variety.
Who does the laundry?
Me. He loathes laundry duty and perhaps messed up on a load just so he doesn't have to do it anymore.
Who's better with the computer?
Me. I work on a computer all day and he serves cocktails. Now ask me who is better at tossing bottles…
Who drives when you are together? JB, I enjoy being chauffeured if possible.
