I’m 25 and my partner is 32.

We’ve been together for nearly 3 years. 

His best quality is probably his calmness. He’s rather infallible and very chill which is in juxtaposition to my kinda hectic nature. 

Favourite part of his body is an odd one. Probably his chest or beard. 

His most annoying trait is that he’s got the emotional range of a dead goldfish. Basically he’s logical to a fault and lacks empathy. 

Best date we’ve had was probably for my birthday last year we went to platform 9 and 3/4, a Victorian market in London and then saw my favourite band in concert. 

We’re heading to Japan next year which is pretty exciting for us.

The most romantic thing he’s done was take care of me after gallbladder surgery. He took the week off and made me the food I eat when I’m sick for 5 days and got me an iPad so I didn’t die of boredom in bed. 

Everyone loves him. He’s very quiet and sweet really and most people realise how gentle he actually is. 

We generally spend our free time chilling out. Watching YouTube and playing Minecraft.

1) your age/your SO’s age   30/33

2) how long have you been together? 2.5 years

3) your SO’s best quality?  Kindness. He is seriously the nicest person I’ve ever met. I thought it was an act at first. 

4) your favourite part of their body?  Chest and Shoulders

5) What annoys you the most about them? This is going to sound like a stupid complaint but he is almost TOO accommodating. I mentioned how much cat hair was on the floor when I left for brunch with a friend today and when I came home it was swept. He brings me coffee every morning and anticipates when I might need ice cream after a bad day. I worry sometimes that he does too much for me and I just can’t keep up with him to reciprocate. I worry one day during an argument I am going to find out he resents having done all this. 

6) the best date you’ve had together?  One date about 18 months into our relationship we just ended up getting apps and drinks at a boring chain restaurant at the mall. We sat on the patio next to a very large group of frats boys. Somehow we spent the whole evening planning out our future and gushing about how in love we were. I remember thinking that I had never in my life felt the way I was feeling in that moment. 

7) something you are looking forward to together?  Having kids. He loves children and they always flock to him. He runs around with my friends kids and my cousins. I can’t wait to see him with his own

8) the sweetest/most romantic they have done for you? See above with the sweeping, coffee and ice cream haha. He also waited a long time for me to make things official. I had been single for years after a terrible breakup and I really did not want to rush things. I think a lot of men who wanted a relationship and eventually marriage wouldn’t have had the patience. It took me almost 6 months to call him my boyfriend. 

9) what do your friends and family think of them?  They LOVE him. 

10) How you enjoy spending your freetime together? We do puzzles together, volunteer in community projects, play video games, go to the theatre

They love him.  They think he is easy going and positive.   

10) How you enjoy spending your freetime together?

I am an adrenaline junkie who loves to move fast in my day, and he loves to sleep in and move slow.  We compromise by driving in our jeep, going on back roads to grab iced coffee is kind of our special time.  We love hiking with our dog and cooking fun meals.  We love watching scary things together.

1) your age/your SO’s age 

30/30

2) how long have you been together? 

5 Months

3) your SO’s best quality?

He is wonderful at communicating. He always tells me how he is feeling and why. Everything is up for discussion. I feel at ease around him.

4) your favourite part of their body?

Smile. He is always grinning.

5) What annoys you the most about them?

When we don’t have concrete plans he’ll give me a time frame (i.e. I’ll be over between 7-8) but then be 20 minutes late outside of that. 

6) the best date you’ve had together? 

Probably our first weekend away. We went skiing and had so much fun. We also had an amazing Easter with a scavenger hunt, hockey game, and then spent the evening at the climbing gym.

7) something you are looking forward to together? 

We have a lead climbing course booked for the first weekend in July. This will let us start climbing outside together.

8) the sweetest/most romantic they have done for you? 

I had a bad day at work, we weren’t supposed to see each other for another two days, but he showed up at my house with a card and a teddy. We always joke that he is a grumpy bear in the morning, so the card said the teddy was a Grumpy Bear for when I am down and he couldn’t be over.

Also, my sister was coming into town and I didn’t have any blinds in my spare room. I was super busy at work that week but he came over, measured for blinds, went out and bought them, then put them up while I was at work.

9) what do your friends and family think of them? 

They love him. He’s got an amazing memory and remembers all the stories I tell about them, and weaves it in pretty well to the conversation. He’s funny and laid back and is so easy to introduce to groups.

10) How you enjoy spending your freetime together?

We love spending it outside. We did a bunch of resort skiing this winter, and next winter I’m going to introduce him to backcountry skiing. With it getting warmer now we’re going to be hiking/scrambling outside. We took rock climbing classes together earlier this year, and (as mentioned above) have a lead climbing course so we can start climbing outside.
