Vince is older by three years. “I’m the baby!”
How long have you been together?
We have been together for 15 years as of July 12, and married for 12 years as of May 5.
Who talked to who first?
Well, that all depends on who you ask. Vince will say that he talked to me first. Well, that part is true; but, he approached me and it felt like a typical pick up line, “You remind me of someone.” His version is that he thought I was his ex-girlfriend from years ago. However, he realized, as he got closer to me, that I wasn’t who he thought I was and left me alone.
Who said “I love you” first?
I may have let those words slip during a moment of intense intimacy.
Did you go to the same school?
No, Vince is from Denver and I am from Topeka.
Who is the most sensitive?
Hmmmm? It depends on the day. Most days, I am probably more sensitive than Vince because I’m the baby and “Baby” is kind a spoiled
Where do you go the most as a couple?
The Blue Moose happy hour.
Where is the furthest you two have traveled together?
We got married in the St. Croix, US Virgin Islands.
Who has the worst temper?
There was a time, back in the day, that I would say it would be me. I was notorious for the silent treatment. But, over the years, I have mellowed out. Vince is always even tempered.
Who does the cooking?
What is this “cooking” you speak of? See the answer to the question about “where do you go the most as a couple?” All jokes aside, we are both very busy and we don’t cook as much as we would like to. If the question was “who is the better cook, ” Vince would definitely win that!!!
Who is more social?
That would be me. Everyday, all day, and twice on Sundays. But, I’ve been working on nurturing my introverted side. Yes, she does exist
Who is the neat-freak?
What you call “neat” Vince calls “put that shtufff where it belongs!”
Who is the most stubborn?
The person typing the answers to these questions, Chris, is the least stubborn one in this relationship. However, if you ask the other one, he would say something like, “the baby likes to get her way!” Hmmmmm……. I do not see a correlation between the two.
Who wakes up earlier?
Hands down…..ME! I set my alarm for 5:55 a.m.!
Where was your first date?
Do you really want to talk about this? Is this a family-friendly newspaper? If so, I’ll leave it with Putt Putt and I-HOP. We typically don’t like to talk about the first date. All the magic happened during the second date when we went to a reggae club in Kansas City. When we danced together for the first time, I knew this was going to be something special!
Who cries more?
I’ve never seen Vince cry in our nearly 15 years together. I cry all the time. In addition to being the baby, I’m also a big marshmallow.
Who has the craziest exes?
Who wears the pants?
Pants? Who wears pants? We prefer a clothing optional relationship.
