Me Valentine and Me

Stole this from Farmer's Daughter, who stole it from Dooce, I know I don't usually post personal things in my blogs, but I've been thinking of changing my ways.

Me and My Valentine

What are your middle names?
My parents felt my name was too long already and never gave me a middle name, but Octav's middle name is Adrian, after his father.

How long have you been together?
It will be eight years in May, seems so long.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
We were in the same french class for 6 months, although I don't remember him. And then we worked together on our high school paper, he did the layout of my section, so we became fast friends, and within a few months became inseparable.

Who asked whom out?
Well he asked me, but we had been a couple for a month at that point, so I'm pretty sure he knew he wouldnt get rejected.

How old are each of you?
I'm 26, and Octav is 24.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Octav only has a half sister, I have never met, and he's never met my half sister, so my sister would be the front runner.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
The distance, we're apart most of the time, because he's usually at university.

Did you go to the same school?
The same high school, but different universities, I went in California, whereas he went in the UK.

Are you from the same home town?
Not even the same country.

Who is smarter?
He's smarter, I like em really smart.

Who is the most sensitive?
I don't think one of us can really claim that title, we're both pretty sensitive.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
We're one of those annoying people that have been to Hard Rock Cafe in almost every city we've been to, and I think its safe to say that is the front runner.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
We have done a lot of traveling, the furthest north we've been together is Scotland, the furthest south is Cyprus (where we were going to boarding school when we meet, though we did visit it this summer so it counts.)

Who has the worst temper?
I do, though I'm mostly pretty mellow

Who does the cooking?
I do, but he pushes me aside if meat is involved.

Who is the neat-freak?
He is, I try for his sake, but he naturally is neat, whereas I'm naturally a tornado.

Who is more stubborn?
He is, I thought I was stubborn, til I met him.

Who hogs the bed?
Well since I'm writing this I get to say he is, though he would probably disagree. He hogs the covers, but he says I only sleep in the center of the bed. (I do not.)

Who wakes up earlier?
I do, I have the ability to fall asleep again, but after I have moved to the center of the bed. (oh, that may be why he thinks I sleep in the center.)

Where was your first date? Pizza Inn, and then a walk in the park that used to be a river in old town Nicosia.

Who is more jealous?
I am, I dont like any of his friends who are girls.

How long did it take to get serious?
A couple of years, we broke up for a while, and his request and after 6 months suddenly asked me to tour Italy with him, even if we were just going to be friends. We havent been just anything since that day.

Who eats more?
Well he's been a starving student longer periods of time than I have, so I do.

Who does the laundry?
He doesnt let me do his, but I have a couple of times.

Who’s better with the computer?
He is. (Though I'm better with websites.)

Who drives when you are together?
We're not really driving people, and in fact have never driven each other, unless you count some rides at Euro Disney with fake wheels. Though we are both licensed, and I even own an old beat up thing that was once a car. He's a walker and loves trains, and I'm somewhat obessed with public transport.

I don't have a photo with me. :( We didnt own digital cameras back then. But if I ever find myself in front of scanner that works...
