10 Questions My Boyfriend And I Asked Each Other About Our Relationship

10 Questions My Boyfriend And I Asked Each Other About Our Relationship

At least he took this somewhat serious

My current boyfriend and I have been official for 4 months now and have been romantic interests for about 8 months. We are best friends and he always knows how to put a smile on my face.

I decided to interview him a little bit about our relationship and he also decided to interview me as well. Enjoy the serious, sarcastic and funny answers, here's how it went down:

Questions I asked him:

1. What was your first impression of me?

"You fell from heaven, like, I've never seen such beauty. My eyes were in shock, my jaw dropped, my eyes had a little sparkle. I thought, 'I'd really like to get to know this girl better. I'd like to take her on a date.'" He was being extra nice here... *eye roll*

2. What did you think of our first date?

"It was terrible. I wanted it to be good and wanted you to really like me and you know we went to go see fireworks and didn't get to see a single one and the whole show was over. I didn't think you wanted to talk to me after that." Our first date was on 4th of July and we planned to go see fireworks. Well, we got there a little too late and missed the show, oops. It was a good attempt though.

3. Did you tell your friends about me? Why?

"Of course. I wanted to show you off. I was like, 'hey, look who I'm talking to.' I was like, 'I think she's the one.' And I also told everyone that you wrestled because that's apparently how everyone knows who you are.'"

4. What's your favorite memory that we've experienced together?

"Six Flags, I feel like that's when things really came together and we really started to connect. It was such a great night, lots of laughs and we had an amazing time and I knew you were the one." He took me to Fright Fest at Six Flags since I really wanted to go. It was so fun and actually pretty scary. We ended up getting stuck on a ride for 10 minutes and got some free flash passes! Score!

5. What's your favorite physical thing and personality trait about me?

"Your eyes, the way they sparkle and the way you look at me. And personality, you always know how to have a good time, we're always doing something exciting." My favorite physical thing about him is his eyes too, dark hair and light eyes are always a bonus in my book.

6. When did you realize you first liked me?

"I liked you from the start, but I was always planning on asking you to be my girlfriend when we went to Michigan for your step brother's wedding, when we went canoeing. But I didn't know how to." I had a gut feeling the whole time that he was going to ask me to be his girlfriend at my step brother's wedding, but that didn't happen.

7. Is there anything that you see or hear that immediately reminds you of me?

"The 1975 if I ever hear that, or LANY or whatever. Also wrestling. Sometimes when I look at peanuts, I go, 'Oh, Lexi is allergic to those...'" I totally understand the first part but the last, wow, so thoughtful...

8. If you could describe me in 3 words, what would they be?

"Thoughtful, trustworthy and gorgeous."

9. What don't you like about me?

"When you do quests on Assassin's Creed without me. Or the way you play MY video games." (I literally did ONE quest on his new game and got him three really cool items and he got mad at me for it because he wanted to do it... what a loser.)

10. What is your favorite thing that we do together?

"Either getting dinner and going to a movie or just like hanging out." I agree, just hanging out and doing nothing is one of my favorite things to do with him.

Questions he asked me:

1. What's your favorite thing to do with me?

"Go on dates, they're always a fun time and I enjoy every minute of them."

2. What did you think when you first saw me?

"I honestly thought you were one of the most attractive guys I have ever seen and you were so courteous and funny, it just made me want to get to know you better."

3. What do you think about me now after all this time?

"I think you are one of the most amazing people I have ever met, you always make me laugh and always make sure I have a smile on my face and I really like that about you. Every day just keeps getting better with you in it!"

4. What did you think of our first date?

"I thought it was great! I don't get why you thought I wouldn't have talked to you after it, it was kinda funny that we missed them. We had a really nice talk laying in the grass at the park which I thought was a good time."

5. Is there anything that you see or do that reminds you of me?

"Whenever I see your high school or someone says they're from the same city as you, I always go, 'Oh! Do you know Adam?' Also, Post Malone, Panda Express, Marcus movie theaters and of course pole vaulting."

6. What don't you like about me?

"How you never let me play your video games because you think I'm going to get you killed in them."

7. Favorite thing about me physically?

"Like I said above, your eyes!"

8. And personality wise?

"In all honesty, I think you have one of the best personalities I have ever encountered. I love it all, but I really like how funny and generous you are."

9. Why do you like me?

"Really... because you're cute, nice, funny, everything. You're so great overall."

10. Your favorite thing that we've done together?

"There's a lot, but I really enjoyed the time we went to my favorite restaurant and went ice skating after. And when we would go on all our little ice cream dates in the summer."

Even though we've been officially together for 4 months, it feels so much longer than that. He sure is one to keep after sitting here and answering and asking questions himself. Quick shout out to him for being a trooper and doing this interview with me! Hopefully he enjoyed it as much as I did!

10 Things My Significant Other MUST Do In Order To Earn The Privilege Of Meeting My Mom

I say "Hakuna Matata" on the daily, but you really need to say it when you prepare to meet my mom.


Besides getting married, meeting the parents can be the most stressful time in any relationship. Your boyfriend could be freaking out because he doesn't want to sound like a loon in front of your dad or your mom may be chopping the vegetables a little too loudly making your girlfriend seem uncomfortable in the presence of a knife. Stressing for days (maybe even weeks) up until the day arrives is apart of being in love because you want your parents to love your significant other just as much as you do and when the dinner is finally over, you can breathe again. My family is a little different and my boyfriend has to do these things to be able to meet my mom and my brother (may as well add my cousins into the mix, too because they're my older siblings).

1. Pass the "Best Friends Test"

I have 6 best friends and each one of them has a unique personality. There's the momma friend, the crazy friend, the questionable friend, the laid back friend, the turnt friend, and the friend who just wants me to be happy. If they don't like you, I'll talk to them to figure out why they don't like you. Either way, if you hurt me, they'll hurt you.

2. Prove that stability is your main priority five years from now, even if I'm not in your plan

Things happen and we can't predict everything. We can be together now, break up in a year, and then get back together. It's part of being a teenager/young adult. We deal with a lot, I mean, we're in college, but the older we get, the more stressful life gets, so I want you to show me that you can handle whatever stresses come your way. I want you to be stable on your own before adding a girlfriend into the mix.

3. Deal with my "Hunger Fits"

Let's face it, I can be a brat, but I'm only a brat on three occasions.

1. I'm sleepy.

2. You didn't let me get my way.

3. I'm hungry.

If you eat without me or go get food without me, I might cry and pout like a two-year-old, so you have to be able to handle it. Pro-tip, have snacks with you whenever we go somewhere.

4. Be okay with getting roasted

My cousins are the funniest people you'll ever meet, but they aren't afraid to talk about you while you sit in front of them, so I need to know that you're okay with being roasted. They're not doing it to be mean (trust me, they aren't), but they're doing it because they're my family and they care about me as if I were their little sister.

5. Be able to hold an intelligent conversation for more than 5 minutes

Good conversation is an essential part of a relationship and I love talking about things that are happening in the world today and because my mom is super knowledgeable on a lot of things, you have to be able to talk for more than 5 minutes about something that's engaging.

6. Remain calm in the face of a difficult conversation

I know when it came to certain topics, I used to go off like a volcano, but I've had to grow out of exploding on people just because they don't agree with me. It takes months, maybe even years to master that type of patience and self-restraint, but I grew up fast, so I needed to learn in less than a year how to hold my tongue. I need to know that if you and I (or someone in my family) were to be in a serious conversation, you'd remain calm. I won't blow up on you, so please don't blow up on me (or my family) because then it might not end so well.

7. State your opinion, no matter how mad I might get

Following up with number six, this is a must! I'm a writer, so I deal with a lot of written opinions on the daily. I'm also involved in a lot of organizations where open dialogue is encouraged, so I deal with a lot of verbal opinions, too. People are going to say what they want to say no matter what and I want you to be able to tell me what's on your mind no matter how severe it may be. I'm here for you and I want you to know that you can trust me with your opinions. I might not agree with them, but I can deal with them.

8. Be able to sit and talk about sports and video games with my brother

You'll for sure meet my older brother before you meet my mom only because he acts just like my late grandfather; calm and laid back. He goes with the flow and doesn't get upset unless I get upset, so you don't have to worry about the big bad overprotective brother (but he is very big and very overprotective). He'd much rather sit and talk about "fork-knife" or a basketball game than grill you. It's just how he is. Also, don't be offended if he engages in conversation with you for like ten minutes before he loses interest in talking to you and goes back to playing his game.

9. Be okay and open to the possibility of a long distance relationship

I don't plan on staying down South for long. I actually won't stay here after I graduate from college. Long distance relationships don't work for 40% of all couples, but I want us to not be a statistic. I believe that we could make it, so I would need to know that you'd be okay with me being a thousand miles away; and of course, if you were halfway across the country, I would learn to be okay with it, too.

10. Love your family as much as you love me

Family is a big deal for me. It's always been me, my older brother, and my mom. You may come from a household where it's you and both of your parents, you and one parent, or you, your parent(s), and your siblings. I love my mom and brother with all of my heart and would drop anything (and I have dropped things) to be with them. I want to see that you love your family with the same amount of love that you give me. A man who loves the family he is born into will love the family he marries into.

My family's triangle has never been broken before, so this is new territory for all of us. Don't feel like an outsider, though! These may seem extensive and extra, but it's the things that matter to me. Aside from the apparent trustworthiness, loyalty, wanting three pets, having a sense of humor, and education that I look for in a guy, you have to do these ten things to meet my mom.

If you pass all of these, then you get to meet her. Don't stress about it though because if she doesn't like you at the first meeting, she'll come around by the next because she loves me and she'll see that I love you.

To The Parents Who Raised The Man Of My Dreams, It Paid Off

You did a phenomenal job.


As a parent, you always wonder if you're doing it right. Parenting doesn't come with instructions. You're not told how to punish your children in every situation or what to do whenever they accomplish something. You're not completely prepared for it. However, for someone without instructions, you did a phenomenal job.

You raised the man of my dreams.

I've dated throughout my teens and every guy seemed to be the same, but with your son everything was different. Your son is everything I've ever wanted. He is perfect. He is such a gentleman. I want you to know everything you taught him like holding the door and paying for dates, it worked.

I want you to know he doesn't show anger towards me. I'm sure I aggravate him and make him angry, but I want you to know I'll never know when I've done so because he doesn't show it. He gets mad with football games and after he gets done yelling, he apologizes.

He makes me feel beautiful. He has seen me at my absolute worse. He has seen me right when I wake up in the morning with no makeup and my hair is a mess and he tells me I'm beautiful. Whenever so get dressed up, he notices. He makes sure to let me know I look beautiful. He pays attention to detail like that my hair is curled or I have a new nose ring in and he adds them in with the compliments.

He is always supportive. Whenever I started back to school, he was so proud of me. When I started writing for The Odyssey, he shared my articles. He will tell me how proud he is of me. When I make good grades on assignments, he tells me good job.

He is so loving. He comforts me whenever I'm sick. When I had the stomach bug, he got my medicine, trashcans, and played with my hair to comfort me. He brushes and straightens my hair for me whenever I don't feel like it because he wants it to look good.

Thanks to you I have found someone who treats me wonderful. If it wasn't for you, he wouldn't know how to treat a lady. It is because of you that he turned out to be nice and respectful man he is today. I want you to know you did an amazing job raising him. He's everything I've ever wanted. Thank you for raising him to be such a gentleman. Thank you for raising him to be everything I've ever dreamed of.
