Relationship Stats

I saw this on Becca's blog who "stole" it from Jordan's blog. I don't know Jordan but I had to copy and paste from her blog since it wouldn't work from Becca's blog. Jordan said, "Consider yourself tagged if you would like to answer these questions."

How long have you been together? We will celebrate our 7th anniversary in a little over 2 weeks.

How old is he? 32

Who eats more? Heath does. But if I wasn’t pregnant with dietary restrictions I would give him a run for his money!!!

Who said "I love you" first? Heath did, after a couple of weeks of dating. I was so shocked I believe my response was, “I think I love you!” Sorry Heath. I love you a lot.

Who is taller? Heath is. I refused to marry anyone shorter than me since I’ve seen too many examples of short man syndrome.

Who sings better? Definitely Heath does.

Who is smarter? Definitely Heath but we are probably just smarter in different areas.

Who does the laundry? I do.

Who does the dishes? Usually me but Heath will load and unload the dishwasher when he sees it needs to be done.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? If you are looking from the bottom of the bed, I sleep on the right. This usually puts Heath closest to the door but in some hotels I’m closest to the door. I read in a magazine that the man should sleep closest to the door as a symbol of protection.

Who pays the bills? Heath deals with all the finances which is what I tell everyone calling for money.

Who mows the lawn? Heath always did but now the gardeners come with rent.

Who cooks dinner? Heath always did but now it’s about even between us. Maybe he still does a little more than me.

Who is more stubborn? I definitely am. But Heath knows how to be diplomatic about it.

Who kissed who first? Heath kissed me first.

Who asked who out? Technically I asked Heath out. I had just had a dramatic haircut (walked in with waist length hair and walked out with it shorter than my shoulders) and went to show my grandparents mostly so I could see Heath who was living with them at the time. Then I asked if he wanted to come with me to show my mom at work. She was the one who suggested we go get dinner and see a movie.

Who proposed? Heath proposed at Murray Park at “our bench.”

Who is more sensitive? I’m not sure how to answer this one. Heath is a sweet sensitive guy in the way you would want a guy to be sensitive. I am sensitive in the way that I take everything personally.

Who has more friends? We’re probably equal although I spend more time with my friends.

Who has more siblings? Me. I have an older brother and a younger sister. Heath just has an older brother.

Who wears the pants in the relationship? We do equally.

How long have you been together? We will celebrate our 37th anniversary in May.

How old is he? 60!

Who eats more? Barry does but I beat him on the chocolate hands down.

Who said "I love you" first? I did. It was not said in his family very often so he was slow to say it but he tells me multiple times a day now.

Who is taller? Barry, by about four inches.

Who sings better? Definitely Barry does. My boys tell me they just pretended to go to sleep when I sang to them so I would stop singing. My mother-in-law used to say, “At least you try.”

Who is smarter? Barry thinks I am but I just put on a better front.

Who does the laundry? Barry.

Who does the dishes? Usually me but Barry does load the dishwasher.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? I do.

Who pays the bills? Barry does most of them but I pay my own credit card bills so he doesn’t have to see how much at the craft and fabric stores.

Who mows the lawn? Barry does. I am allergic to fresh cut grass. In just a couple of feet I am so stuffed up I can’t breath. I don’t even go outside while he is cutting it most of the time.

Who cooks dinner? I used to cook all the time but we are pretty even now. I come home from work first and crash for a while so if we want to eat before eight Barry often cooks. That has really been a life saver. If I had my way we would often skip dinner.

Who is more stubborn? I am but at least I admit it. Barry is very stubborn but he won’t say anything just does it his way.

Who kissed whom first? Funny story here, I will share some day.

Who asked whom out? Well, since we only had one official date Barry did. It was a BYU basketball game and the only way to get tickets was to stand in line over night and I lived in the dorm and could not stay out all night. But, I was the one who ask for a ride home after the first dance club meeting.

Who proposed? Barry proposal went like this, “IF I ask you to marry me what would you say?’ Is that a real proposal?
Who is more sensitive? I am. Not only do I take everything to heart and cry at movies and over books but I am more aware of others feelings.

Who has more friends? Right now I would say Barry. I have lots of acquaintances but no really good friends right now. How sad.

Who has more siblings? Barry he is one of eight I am one of five.

Who wears the pants in the relationship? I do I just let him think he does.
