I wasn’t tagged in this tag, but I enjoyed reading other peoples so much (shoutout to Ger and Chloe!) that I’ve taken it upon myself to do it anyway! It’s a nice easy one because Mike has done most of the work.
Where did we meet?
M: On Tinder, baby. Bow chicka wow wow
H: It is true, I was ready to give up all hope and then he swooped in with a ‘Hey’ and the rest is history. His Tinder bio was as cringey as his answer above though…
Where was our first date?
M: At The Cork (a pub) in Bath. Such a lovely place, one we’ve been back to multiple times since!
H: It was super cute, we stayed until closing and I didn’t even realise we’d been there that long!
What was your first impression of me?
M: That you were literally the female version of me! Complete with a strong love for Marvel, Disney and even Star Wars! You were smart, bubbly and I instantly felt comfortable despite rambling on and on to prevent nervous silences.
H: Aw, what a cutie.
When did you meet my family?
M: I met your wonderful mother Mag, and sister Katy, the February after we met. 5 months is a fairly long time to meet one’s family, but given the 2 to 3 hour drive from Bristol to Leicester we wanted to make it a worthwhile trip. So I took some time off work and we spent 5 days up there, giving me a chance to meet both her family and her friends on a night out!
H: Mum will love the sucking up in that answer… I met his entire extended family before he met my mum! Excited to take him over to Ireland at Easter to meet the rest of my family!
Do I have any weird obsessions?
M: Stitch. From Lilo & Stitch. Like it’s unreal how much merchandise it spans across; a mug, socks, jumpers (Christmas included), a t-shirt, a handmade picture frame from my sister and of course a big cuddly toy! There’s probably more to come to… its a good thing I like the character too.
H: I don’t even know where this obsession stemmed from, if I’m honest!
How long have we been together?
M: It will be 1 year and 4 months on January 20th!!
What was the first thing you noticed about me?
M: That you chose to drink a pint on our date, completely subverting my potentially stereotypical assumption! I definitely knew from then on to expect the unexpected.
H: What can I say, I love a pint.
What do we argue about the most?
M: I wouldn’t say we argue consistently over one subject, and that’s not to say we argue over multiple things either! In all honesty, the only times we’ve had a real problem was mainly caused by me being insensitive to the situation at hand.
H: And that’s only because I’m an emotional wreck. Very glad that neither of us are argumentative and will do everything to avoid getting into a confrontational situation. Communication is key!
Who wears the trousers in the relationship?
M: Me, I’m Maverick and she’s Goose. (She’ll say differently…)
H: This is a lie, he is 100% Goose and I am Maverick. He always looks to me for approval and copies what I do. (Jokes aside though, I don’t think either of us wear the trousers).
If I’m watching TV, what am I watching?
M: Grey’s Anatomy and Gilmore Girls are usually at the top of the of the watch list. Aside from that, Suits, Atypical, Marvel Netflix (with me) and more casual shows, which I too enjoy, such as Friends, Gavin & Stacey and the king… Brooklyn Nine Nine! NINE NINE!!
H: A very correct and comprehensive list, he knows me well. Gilmore Girls is my current re-watch go to! Also, hurry up Netflix UK, we need season five of B99!
What is one food I don’t like?
M: Tomatoes! BLOODY TOMATOES! Only spent a good 50 minutes stuck on this question and basically got spoon fed the answer.
H: I pretty much talk about how I hate all salad foods on a daily basis and he needed hints for this!
What size are my feet?
M: I have no idea.. you can tell I am yet to buy her shoes as a gift!
H: I asked him if his life depended on it and he had to guess what his answer would be and he got it right, men [insert eye roll].
What is my favourite kind of sandwich?
M: After conferring with you, I can reveal one of them is Sweetcorn and Tuna!
H: Tuna and Sweetcorn. I told him this after we saw Hamilton and were getting some Boots meal deals and I still had to give him hints for it, starting to think he doesn’t listen to me…
What is one talent that I have?
M: Creative writing I suppose! Just look at the blog surrounding this post, I’m honestly so impressed with all the hard work put into this so far and it certainly shows!
H: This answer made me smile a lot, get you a supportive man!
Where was our first kiss?
M: On your doorstep in Bath, on our second date. I asked permission before I went for it.
H: It was very cute and respectful and still makes me smile when I think about it.
What colour are my eyes?
M: Dark green?
H: He tried to snoop my Instagram for this answer, sneaky. My eyes are actually hazel but on the greener side of the spectrum so I’ll take this.
What is something you do that I wish you wouldn’t?
M: Make memes.
H: Not so much the making of the memes as much as him doing it in the middle of conversation or when we’re supposed to be doing something else and he just completely blanks me.
What can I spend hours doing?
M: Aside from managing the blog and engaging in its entire culture (which is productive!) I’d say just experimenting with make-up palettes upstairs.
H: Both are very correct answers, if I’m not doing either of those then I’m reading but spot on answers.
If I could live anywhere, where would it be?
M: Well she really wants to travel to Croatia but that might just be a holiday vibe. Possibly America, possibly Ireland with her extended family or who knows maybe just in a house, in our own little spot in Bristol one day.
H: Croatia is definitely more holiday vibes. Our own house in our own little spot in Bristol sounds good to me.
