1. Where did you and DH meet? Technically, high school, but we were just friends and I was in a relationship at the time. A few months after college started, I broke up with the BF and went with a friend to see her boyfriend. My hubby was the friend's bf. That night (when we got back to school 2 hours away), we talked on the internet and he drove down the next day. After that, the rest was history.

2. How long before you were a couple after meeting? Well after we met up the 2nd time in college, we started dating and said that since we lived so far apart, that we could date other people, but neither of us did and we were pretty much together ever since.

3. How long after being together did you move in together? Well we only saw each other on weekends and we had to stay with each other since we lived so far apart. We got engaged about a year after dating and then the following summer, he lived with me. Then went back to school for 1 more semester and then moved in permanently.

4. What is your absolute favorite thing about him? He's so smart and loves tech things.

5. What is your least favorite thing about him? The fact that he isn't very organized and doesn't plan things very well. I guess that's why I'm around.

All about your DH!

1. Where did you and DH meet? High School, but we both were in relationships. We both were single about a year after high school when we finally started hanging out and talking in that way!


2. How long before you were a couple after meeting? Well it was about a year after high school, but it was only about two months after ending my relationship with the other guy.


3. How long after being together did you move in together? Haha. About a month! It was actually about 20 days.


4. What is your absolute favorite thing about him? I know its cheesy but its really hard for me to pick just one thing, he is a very special person. I guess my FAVORITE thing would be that he is the most honest person I have ever met and I never ever have to worry about him lying. That also goes along with the fact that if he says he is going to do something, he does it. I LOVE that about him. He's VERY much a go getter.

5. What is your least favorite thing about him? How he will open up the pantry and whatever he is looking for is right in his view but he still cant find it. Or in a drawer, his closet, his car...anywhere!!

All about your DH!

1. Where did you and DH meet? At college. He ran track with my roomate and his best friend was roomates with my brother - small world, right?

2. How long before you were a couple after meeting? We knew each other through friends (and my brother) for about 8 months before we starting thinking about each other "in that way" When I first met him though, my first reaction was "that's the kind of guy I'm going to end up with". He was dating someone else at the time though, so I never really thought "him" until later.

3. How long after being together did you move in together? We dated for about two years in college where we didn't technically live together, but stayed at each other's places mostly every night. Then we traveled for about three years both together and apart. When we were together in countries, we lived together then.

4. What is your absolute favorite thing about him? My absolute favorite thing about him is that he is kind. Absolutely the kindest person I've ever met and he can/will talk to anyone. He's funny as all get out and very very respectful/empathetic of others feelings and perspectives. He also does what he says he's going to do. Awesome!

5. [B]What is your least favorite thing about him? He farts while he pees. Aaaaaarghh! Its so annoying!!!

His constant flipping of the channels on TV when an ad comes on. Drives me nuts. I have to re-possess the remote sometimes!!!

All about your DH!

1. Where did you and DH meet? During high school. We went to different high schools and met through mutual friends.

2. How long before you were a couple after meeting? A few months. I let him chase me down and pursue me!

3. How long after being together did you move in together? Not until the week before our wedding!!

4. What is your absolute favorite thing about him? His kind heart, he doesn't have a bad word to say about anyone, and he will help anyone with anything.

5. What is your least favorite thing about him? Same thing as Ashley said he has what I like to call "tunnel vision" if its not RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIS FACE he can't find it! But really he just needs to look a little harder.

1. Where did you and DH meet? We went to the same high school but since he is a year younger than me I dont remember him although im sure we ran into eachother at some point. We met when I was a freshman in college( he was a high school senior) when I was home for the weekend visitng friends.

2. How long before you were a couple after meeting? he had a girlfriend at the time, so it was prolly about 3 or 4 months before we started dating.

3. How long after being together did you move in together? 4 years

4. What is your absolute favorite thing about him? he can make me laugh all the time. Even when im mad and him doing something to make me laugh makes it worse in that moment, i usually always end up laughing in the end.

5. What is your least favorite thing about him? he forgets everything. I tell him that i swear when we have kids hes going to forget to pick them up from somewhere one day.

1. Where did you and DH meet?
We met on the first day of 6th grade! I was 10, he was 11

2. How long before you were a couple after meeting?
We were "boyfriend and girlfriend" all of 7th and 8th grade, then we broke up in 9th grade and were apart for 6 years before reconnecting over the internet [thank goodness for AIM ] I was actually engaged to someone else, but broke things off with him after hanging out with David for a few hours after having not seen him in years....it was like falling in love with him all over again

3. How long after being together did you move in together?
We started dating [again] in September 2004, and I bought my house in May 2005...he moved in like a month later

4. What is your absolute favorite thing about him?
His sense of humor. I am a very "serious" person, and he helps to keep things more light hearted and fun around the house...I tend to get stressed out easily and he's the ONLY ONE who can make me feel like everything will be alright

5. What is your least favorite thing about him?
He's pretty darn lazy

1. Where did you and DH meet? At work

2. How long before you were a couple after meeting? Hmmm, not sure really, we worked together so we knew who each other was, but didn't really talk to each except for work related purposes. If I had to guess I'd say a year after we met.

3. How long after being together did you move in together? Ummmm, on our first date, I slept over and stayed over every single night after that. So less than 24 hours.

4. What is your absolute favorite thing about him? He is just a really great person...I am very lucky to have someone who cares so much about me.

5. What is your least favorite thing about him? He forgets EVERYTHING.
