Just the two of us.

Kyle and I just celebrated our anniversary a couple days ago and while it was low-key, it was absolutely fantastic.
To make my blog seem less boring, I’ve taken the following from Amber.

What are your middle names?
Michele and Thomas

How long have you been together?
Seven wonderful years. People keep asking us, “When are you going to get married?” and really, we’re tired of being asked. We have other priorities to sort through first, like buying a house.

How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Since grade one/two. We’re the same age, but Kyle was a grade ahead of me.

Who asked whom out?
I told him that if he were to ask me out, I’d say yes, so he did.

How old are each of you?
We’re both 23.

Whose siblings do you see the most?
Together we probably see his sister more, even though she lives in Williams Lake.
Which situation is the hardest on you as a couple?
There have been many situations where it’s been hard. High school was tough because it was high school, but right now it’s finding a house to live in where we’re both comfortable financially and domestically.

Did you go to the same school?
We sure did – the joys of living in a small town! We both attended TRU as well, Kyle for a little bit of the Business program before switching to welding and I took the journalism program.

Are you from the same home town?
We sure are. When I was little I lived less than a block away! Then I moved across town, but it was still only a 5-minute drive.

Who is smarter?
Haha – Well, we’re both smart in different ways. Kyle really knows his math and mechanical stuff, and he knows a lot of random trivia. I’m more handy when it comes to writing and current events and I know lots of trivia about music and whatnot. Overall I think Kyle’s smarter though.

Who is the most sensitive?
Me, by a long shot. It’s called hormones and I have a lot of them!

Where do you eat out most as a couple?
That’s a good question! We like to eat at a variety of different places, but usually we go to a place that serves steak. We do love Greek food though!

Where is the furthest you two have traveled together as a couple?
Vancouver last summer for the Top in Trades awards. It was an amazing trip together! I can’t wait to travel with him again :)

Who has the craziest exes?
I don’t think either of our exes are crazy. We don’t talk to any of them any more.

Who has the worst temper?
We both have bad tempers, but in different ways. I get mad at stupid little things like the cable being out during my favourite show and Kyle gets angry and the ridiculousness of Kamloops’ drivers.

Who does the cooking?
Kyle does most of the cooking, but he’s an amazing cook! I do my best but Kyle is more talented in the kitchen by far.

Who is the neat-freak?
We both seem to go through random spurts of “OMG WE NEED TO CLEAN!” One day I’ll randomly gut out the panty and fridge and sometimes Kyle tidies the counters and coffee table.

Who is more stubborn?
I am.

Who hogs the bed?
Probably me. I like to sprawl across the bed when Kyle leaves for work in the

Who wakes up earlier?
Kyle does during the week, but I do on the weekends, only because Kyle needs his rest after a hard week at work. I dont’ blame him though, I’d need it too.

Where was your first date?
As I recall, we bought a bunch of 5-cent candy from the convenience store and then went back to his place and playing online computer games. It was fun!

Who is more jealous?
Probably me.

How long did it take to get serious?
You’d have to define “serious”. We didn’t move in together until a year ago, but we were too busy with school and wouldn’t have been able to afford it. But I think we got more serious when we both finished high school and didn’t have drama that goes along with it.

Who eats more?
Kyle eats more than me at one sitting, but I eat way more throughout the day.

Who does the laundry?
I do some laundry on Wednesdays when I don’t work and we both pitch in on the weekends. I think we both hate doing laundry.

Who’s better with the computer?
I think we both have equal skills but neither of us are nerds. We usually end up asking Dave for help if we can’t figure something out. Kyle’s better at Excel than me though. Excel makes me want to cry.

Who drives when you are together?
I usually do because my car is better on gas. Sometimes Kyle drives though, usually when we’re going down a dirt road. As much as I like to think that my car has 4×4 capabilities, it really doesn’t.

  1. Yay! Thanks for doing the survey! That's cool that you guy's have known each other so long/been dating so long. I feel like I hardly ever meet someone who has been in a relationship since high school and sometimes I feel awkward about it!Maybe see you at the gym tonight, I'm trying REALLY hard to get out of here in time. I don't think reading blogs is helping though, haha!


  2. Rep Reebok was packed tonight and I barely made it on time! Stupid having to work until 4:30. At least the office is close.I find that when I tell people we've been dating for seven years, they'll ask how old I am and then do the math in their heads. Then they'll say something like, "Oh wow, so you've been dating since high school? Woooow"It's rare these days to see that kind of relationship because very rarely do high school romances work out into long term relationships.
