Our First Anniversary

I’ve seen this particular meme style list all over the place… Simply Mel did it on her anniversary and Gill and EXMI did it too!
When I first saw it I didn’t think I could use it- but since today is mine and the Glugster’s first anniversary, I thought I’d put this up!

1. Who is your man?

The Glugster is my man.

2. How long have you been together?

One whole year as of 7PM this evening!

3. How long did you date before you got married?

How bout I let you know when we get married, ‘kay?

4. How old is your man?

He’s just turned 33, so a bit younger than me!

5. Who eats more?

He does… but not by much, heh heh!

6. Who said “I love you” first?

Erm… I did.

Actually not “I love you” as such. I took a picture of him- which he’s not mad about- and he asked why. I said I wanted a picture of my love before I thought about my answer (and you know I never speak before I think), and he heard me… clearly.

We then spoke about what was going on in a little more detail. I won’t bore you with the details but it was a little like those RomCom movie scenes where the couple look deep into each other’s eyes and admit they may be falling in love.

7. Who is taller?

He is, but that’s not difficult with me…

8. Who sings better?

Erm… I think we both sing well. I love karaoke and such and I’ve been told I have a nice voice, and he’s even been in a men’s choir!

9. Who is smarter?

Oooh, now this is a toss up!

We’re both very smart and we have some fabulous conversations, and he went to varsity and everything whilst I went straight to work… needing a medical aid for my knucklehead and so on… tough one. Whaddayathink babe?

10. Whose temper is worse?

Um, I think mine is. I am very quick to shout or swear if I kick my toe or burn myself cooking or something.

11. Who does the laundry?

We have a maid… isn’t that awesome!?!

12. Who takes out the garbage?

That’s Damien’s job!

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?

Erm… is this when you stand at the foot of the bed and look towards the pillows? ‘coz then I do. But if you’re lying on your back on the bed then he sleeps on the right hand side.

14. Who pays the bills?

Basically he pays his and I pay mine.

15. Who is better with the computer?

Oh he so is! I’m not bad, but he’s better.

16. Who mows the lawn?

The complex’s garden services…!

17. Who cooks dinner?

I do mostly. I love doing it.

18. Who drives when you are together?

He does.

19. Who pays when you go out?

He does.

20. Who is the most stubborn?

Well… since we have yet to have a fight I’m really not sure.

…yes seriously- we have not had a fight yet…

some people say couples need to fight to keep the passion in their relationship- I think maybe some couples need to fight before they can have sex at all, let alone be passionate… so we reckon it’s easier to keep the passion alive anyway!

21. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong?

Again, I s’pose the same answer goes here as for #20- when this happens I’ll come back here and update it, LOL.

22. Whose parents do you see most?

Mine. Mostly because they’re closer to us than his are, but also because I am closer to my folks relationship-wise than he is to his. There’s no bad blood or anything, they’re just not as involved with each other as my family is.

23. Who kissed who first?

I did. I asked him for a kiss. We were at Sweets’ house for a braai- this was after we’d met, for the first time, earlier in the week for dinner- and when Sweets went inside to fetch something I walked to where he was standing at the braai. I said I knew I prolly tasted like cigarettes (he doesn’t smoke), but could I have a kiss anyway. He said okay, and when he kissed me that was it for me, I knew immediately that what I’d felt on the Tuesday before hadn’t just been horny-mones!

24. Who asked who out?

Well, we had plans for a blog-meet that I’d had to bail on due to pre-existing plans. But we simply postponed it. It wasn’t supposed to be a romantic thing at all.

25. Who proposed?

Well, I’m hoping he will eventually…

26. Who is most sensitive?

I think I am. He has a big heart, but I’m the one who thinks people hate me when they don’t answer an invitation!

27. Who has the most friends?

We both have a lot of friends, and thanks to the bloggy world we have a lot of mutual friends too!

28. Who has more siblings?

We have the same number of siblings each! We’re three sisters with the da bruvva the youngest, and they’re 3 brothers with their sister the youngest!

29. Who wears the pants in the family?

He does. Even in the short year we’ve been together I find myself wanting to speak to him about things and asking for his opinions when I almostnever consulted anyone before.

30. How did you meet?

In the bloggysphere! How cool is that? He started blogging in September 2007 and via mutual reads we started reading each other’s blogs. Meeting face-to-face for the first time on December 11th at Rhapsody’s for dinner.
