Just another survey that proves to me that me & my hubby are like oil & water

Taken from Sundry.

What are your middle names?
Mine is Lee, Hubby's is Matthew

How long have you been together?
10 loooonnnngggg years. Started dating in December 1998; married in 2000.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
About 3 years. We were friends first. Met through mutual friends our senior year of high school. Saved a dog, a kitten, and saved my ass a few times too.

Who asked whom out?
I can't really pinpoint who asked who out. Like I said, we were friends. We hung out, we liked each other, neither of us were dating anyone else (or...wait....?) and I just remember a night of kissing in the cold rain.

How old are each of you?
We are both 31, and it wouldn't be a normal answer if I didn't tell you what he tells every-bloody-one: I am (a mere) 6 days older than he.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Mine, for sure. For one, my family is always around. Second, his brothers are like non-existent in everyone's life.

Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
If you ask him, it's when we are together. Bwahahahahahahaha. He's a funny guy, isn't it? If you ask me, I would say his uncle's death a few years ago.

Did you go to the same school?
Nope. We only went to the same high school for one semester.

Are you from the same home town?
No. He grew up in Cedar Hill, Texas and I grew up in Fort Worth, Texas.

Who is smarter?
He is definitely smarter at analyzing things, at numbers, at investments. I am good at psycho-analyzing things, great with words, and lovely when it comes to being caring and giving. Does that make me smart?

Who is the most sensitive?
Me, for sure. To a fault sometimes.

Where do you eat out most as a couple?

Hmmm, probably Sushi Sam's or pizza.

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Playa del carmen, mexico

Who has the craziest exes? 

I would have to say him. Especially considering he had an ex that knew where were lived, as in-had driven by our house and could describe everything about it but hadn't talked to him in several years. Hellloooo, spooky. Most of my ex's disappeared into thin air.

Who has the worst temper?
Oh, I'm pretty sure we are on even ground on this one. I get it out right away, yelling stomping, and throwing shit (occasionally). He keeps it all in, until he explodes. We feed off of one another's anger.

Who does the cooking?
That would be me. He will cook breakfast occasionally, but other than that...

Who is the neat-freak?
I have my interesting little quirks about things being clean, but by far, he is the one with the OCD. He gets pissy about the labels of cans facing the same in the pantry; his shirts facing the same way in the closet, color-coded; and OMG HE gets down-right persnickety about how to load our dishwasher. Also? You must clean each dish, cup, and spoon prior to putting it in the dishwasher.

Who is more stubborn?
Him. He will not give in on anything, even when it is blatantly obvious that he is wrong. I, on the other hand, stand my ground on things that are important to me, but cave on other things. I hate confrontation.

Who hogs the bed?
We stay to our own sides. He hogs the comforter, I hog the sheet. In this, we are pretty compatible.

Who wakes up earlier?
Him.

Where was your first date?
Hell of I know!

Who is more jealous?
Depends on the situation. I would say, overall, I am more jealous, but it comes from my own feelings of inadequacy (told you I psycho-analyze everything).

How long did it take to get serious?
Not long at all. We dated for a couple of months, and by spring he was at my apartment pretty much every night.

Who eats more?
I eat more throughout the day; he eats one, maybe two meals a day. But during those meals he does eat, he definitely surpasses me.

Who does the laundry?
Me. The few times he has done the laundry, he has shrunk the shit out of some of my clothes, and that is his "reasoning" behind no longer doing laundry. Whatever.

Who’s better with the computer?
Me.

Who drives when you are together?
Him, for several reasons. 1. He always has to be in control 2. He thinks I'm a bad driver 3. He says my Jeep is a sardine can, and he gets all claustrophobic in it.

Go right ahead and psycho-analyze that.
Then be sure and do this little meme-thingy yourself.

I love these! I did one a while back, but I think I may have posted it on Facebook and not my actual blog. I'll have to look into that. I thought your husband saying when you're together was so funny.

I'm gonna borrow too. I need something to kick start my thoughts anyway.

And reading your answers I am again convinced we were separated at birth!
