Couples Survey

I saw this posted by a bunch of people on myspace and thought I'd jump on the bandwagon:

1. What are your first names?
Erika & Jason

2. How long have you been together?
That's a hard question to answer....we started dating in high school December 1991 but broke up in August 1993. Got back together in February 1994 only to break up again in November 1994 our freshman year at Maryland. But, we got back together for good in June 1998 and got married in July 2000.

3. How long did you know each other before you started dating?
Since 1987 - 6th grade. We were in the same section so we had several classes together each day. But I don't know if there was any kind of real interest until high school although each of us admits to a small crush on one another here and there before that.

4. Who asked who out?
In HS, I kind of pursued him and he knew I liked him, but he was the one that asked me out but I think it was under duress.

5. How old are each of you?
Both are 31 although I just turned 31 and he's getting close to 32. (December birthdays are cool now!)

6. What are your astrological signs?
I'm a Sagittarius and he's an Aries - both fire signs.

7. How tall are each of you?
He's 6'4" and I'm 5'4" - so quite a height difference, but I'm used to it. We use our steps for a really good quality hug.

8. Who's mother do you see the most?
It's actually about even.

9. Who’s siblings do you see the most?
I'm not sure. Depends on the month. I'd say most times it's his, but then we have some months where we see mine more.

10. Do you have any children together?
2 with 1 on the way....

11. What about pets?
I told you, we have kids. Oh and Caroline has a Betta named Spikey.

12. If so, what kind?
a girl one and a boy one

13. Which bill is the hardest on you as a couple?
Mortgage and daycare (eek!)

14. How do each of you work?
He works in software testing (I always get his title wrong, sorry Jay) and I am a university administrator.

15. Is that what you went to school for?
Him - no, but me (for my master's degree) - yes.

16. Did you go to the same school?
Middle, High and undergrad (GO TERPS!)

17. Are you from the same hometown?
Yep

18. are you from the same town now?
Um, we're married.

19. Who is the smartest?
I'd say we're pretty even. Both of us are really fast learners and can pick things up really quickly. Obviously we both have things we have a natural affinity toward, but I think that's always been something that has kept us together is the fact that we are evenly matched when it comes to intelligence and we can really discuss things and not feel like the other person doesn't have a clue.

20. Who is the most sensitive?
Oh, that's me. But maybe it's just b/c I cry easier. Is he crying on the inside? I'll never know.

17. Where do you eat out at most as a couple?
Well, until recently it was this sushi place but we haven't been in a while. We don't eat out often so when we do, we like to try new things.

18. Where do you shop the most as a couple??
Grocery store and Target

19. Where is the furthest you have traveled as a couple?
Aruba

22. Who has the best group of friends?
Jay is still friends with a bunch of guys (who he never has time to see) from high school and I have a bunch of long distance relationships with friends from college/grad school/online but mostly we have couple friends (with kids!) now.

23. Who has the craziest exes?
Neither - very few to count and none that were anything abnormal - just not good matches.

24. Who has the worst temper?
Oh that would be Jason. Although his bark is worse than his bite. I've gotten pretty good at controlling my anger/frustration (particularly with the kids) in the past year even though I do have to yell sometimes. Caroline told me that must be why Santa didn't put anything in my stocking.....because I yelled a lot. (Although I don't yell as much as I used to.)
