Happy Valentine’s Day! You’ll know from my post earlier in the week that I think today (while highly and unnecessarily commercialised), is a great opportunity to celebrate being in a relationship, I thought it would be really fun to do something a bit different on the blog and actually get the man himself involved. The Boyfriend Tag (although Ian’s actually my Fiancé) would of course be much better filmed, but until I get myself properly set up to do videos (in time Sweeties, in time), a transcript of our conversation will have to do! Here goes:
Me (C): Hi darling
Ian (I): Hello
C: I thought I would involve you today in participating in ‘The Boyfriend Tag’ with me.
I: Okay Fiancée! Fire away.
C: Okeydokey. Question 1. Where did we meet?
I: Royal Ascot
C: Correct, we were both working for a well know betting company at the time. I was working with the promotions team for the summer and met you while doing so! Although I think you initially thought I was called Stacey?
I: I did that’s true, but you assume that if someone is wearing a name tag it’s their actual name on it and not one that is being (temporarily) borrowed!
C: Ha! Question2. Where was our first date?
I: I took you to a cricket match at Cheltenham College.
C: Yes, I had never been to a game before and you saw this as a great opportunity to see a match and take me on a date at the same time.
C: Question 3. Where was our first kiss?
I: As above, I got a cheeky kiss after the match finished.
C: Question 4. Did you know that I was the one? If so, how far into the relationship?
I: I did but not sure exactly when, maybe a little while after you’d moved in with me and we’d tested that we were properly compatible; so perhaps after a little over a year or so of being together?
C: Yeah I agree, I was living on my own before moving in with you and I remember having the conversation about living together and I said that if I move in, I’m not doing so to just move out again.
C: Question 5. What were your first impressions of me?
C: Is that it, cute?
I: Yeah, you just seemed like a nice young lady. What were your first impressions of me?
C: You were quite shy I remember, but the more I got to know you the more you opened up. I could see that despite the shyness, there was a gentleman underneath.
C: Question 6. When did you meet my family?
I: After about 9 months of dating, you’d just finished University and were about to move in (with me). We spent the day in Taunton watching the cricket and your parents met us for lunch.
C: Question 7. Where’s the best place we’ve visited together?
I: India, our first holiday.
C: That was an incredible trip (read about our travels in India here).
C: Question 8. Who said ‘I love you’ first and where were we?
I: It was me, at my/our flat on New Year’s Eve at midnight.
C: Yes, and I said it back!
C: Question 9. What do we argue about the most?
I: In fairness we don’t really argue but me farting sparks a bit of tension 😉
C: Lol! Question 10. Who wears the trousers (in our relationship)?
I: You. View Full Post
