I actually saw this on a blog I love called “two of a mind”. However I am not sure if their site is under construction but for some reason it won’t let me link their site or even find it. But I really enjoyed reading it and I love their posts so that’s where I got the inspiration…
Therefore, I thought (well asked my lovely other half) we could do this tag! So let’s welcome Ryan to my blog, how exciting!
- Where did we first meet?
Ryan: We first met on an athletics social in POP WORLD at university. Although apparently, you had already asked a mutual friend who I was a few months beforehand.
Gemma: That is very true haha! However, I actually first saw you the year before when I was watching my friends on athletics at varsity and you were competing and that’s when I first asked about you haha.
2. Where was our first date?
Ryan: Our first date was to Frankie & Benny’s because who doesn’t love Italian?
Gemma: Yeah it was, and I was excited and nervous haha. But it was super cute.
3. What was your first impression of me?
Ryan: When we first met I thought “wow she’s got nice eyes”. The second time I saw you, I felt like you was a bit shy and reserved but also kinda cute.
Gemma: I do have big eyes, and aww that’s nice. I definitely am shy but now I definitely am not haha.
4. When did you meet my family?
Ryan: I first your family about 5 or 6 months after we had got together. I was apprehensive at first but was quickly made to feel welcome.
Gemma: I was also nervous. But I’m glad you all got on and I love how you get on with them now.
5. Do I have any weird obsessions?
Ryan: Not anything out of the ordinary.
Gemma: I can’t even think of any either.
6. How long have we been together?
Ryan: We are coming up to our three-year anniversary. Time has gone by so quickly!!
Gemma: That is crazy long!!
7. Do we have any traditions?
Ryan: Every Christmas we have been together we have gone to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. I suppose it is kind of our yearly tradition.
Gemma: Honestly one of my favourite things. I love the fact I can share Winter Wonderland with you. But I am sure we will have so many other traditions too.
8. Where was our first holiday?
Ryan: Our first holiday together was to a hotel and spa called ‘Sandos San Blas’. I had been there before previously with my family, so I wanted to share that experience with Gemma.
Gemma: It was such a lovely place and I had never been before! Plus, we got to experience Siam Park together which was amazing! Definitely recommend that if you ever go to Tenerife to go to Siam Park.
9. What was the first thing you noticed about me?
Ryan: Your eyes. Probably your most prominent feature. The shape, the size, the colour.
Gemma: That’s fair enough haha!
10. What is my favourite restaurant?
Ryan: Anywhere you can get pizza.
Gemma: That’s true haha, pizza is my go-to food!
11. What do we argue about the most?
Ryan: I’m a bit of a neat freak, so mainly that!
Gemma: I wouldn’t say we argue, we hardly argue. But we do bicker sometimes and yes I am a messy person haha! But I am trying my best I promise.
12. Who wears the trousers in the relationship?
Ryan: I would say me as I think you are too laid back.
Gemma: I mean I wish I could say me but yes I am too chilled.
13. If I’m watching TV, what am I watching?
Ryan: If we are talking Netflix then you are watching Riverdale, you don’t really watch much traditional TV.
Gemma: That’s true, I actually watch a lot of Netflix. I mean Gossip Girl is the ultimate favourite. I also started watched “YOU” and that was really good. Also I am watching “Sons of Anarchy” at the moment with you so I am just waiting for you to want to watch it cause I need to know what happens!!
14. What is one food I don’t like?
Ryan: Bacon!!!! How can you not like bacon!! I’m still in shock!
Gemma: This is pretty much the reaction I get all the time, but I just don’t like it. I am not a massive meat-eater. I will eat chicken and occasionally try to eat other meats, but I prefer fish and veg stuff haha!
15. What drink do I order if we go out?
Ryan: I’m not sure if you have a set drink. Maybe a spirit and a mixer. First time we met you made me do a shot of Tequila ewww.
Gemma: Yeah, I don’t really have a set drink, it’s just whatever I fancy at the time. Yes, I did and that was horrible, bad decision from me haha!
16. What size are my feet?
Ryan: A 5 I think.
Gemma: Correct. But you always think it’s 6!
17. What is my favourite kind of sandwich?
Ryan: Not sure I’ve ever seen you eat a sandwich. Cheese and tomato wraps are all you can eat for lunch I swear.
Gemma: That is true I live on those wraps haha! I don’t really like sandwiches (Weird I know) but I do have marmite ones sometimes (yes also weird).
18. What is one talent I have?
Ryan: You are creative. You are very good at drawing anime and you can play the piano.
Gemma: Thank you. I have always been creative and I have always been independent in teaching myself to play the piano or guitar I have never had lessons! Just love creativity.
19. What is my favourite cereal?
Ryan: Again, not really sure I have ever seen you eat cereal!
Gemma: That’s true I don’t. I like toast and then some fruit but if I was to eat cereal it probably would be Weetabix.
20. Where was our first kiss?
Ryan: Our first kiss was when we first met
Gemma: How romantic of us haha! But, look at us now so who cares haha
21. What colour are my eyes?
Ryan: This is why they stood out so much to me. Your eyes are a mix of blue, green and hazel.
Gemma: My eyes are very unique haha.
22. What is something you do I wish you wouldn’t?
Ryan: I go quiet when I am upset rather than talking and resolving the issue.
Gemma: That is so true!
23. What kind of cake would you bake me for my birthday?
Ryan: Chocolate cake!! Is there anything better?!?
Gemma: That is so true, it is my favourite!
24. What can I spend hours doing?
Ryan: Watching youtube, listening to music or looking at houses online.
Gemma: that is pretty spot on haha! Also though I think I could spend hours just playing my piano and guitar.
25. If I could live anywhere where would it be?
Ryan: You like the idea of moving to Canada, but I don’t think that would be long term. In terms of the UK we both love Brighton and Sevenoaks. Both are completely different from one another so maybe they represent different stages of our lives.
Gemma: That is all so true! I have always wanted to go to Canada and would love to live there. However, you are right I definitely could not live there forever especially as I am such a family person and I could not not be around them for that long haha! But I definitely would love to live abroad somewhere for a few months just to do it really haha.
Well that is all 25 questions haha! Really hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed doing it. Thank you Ryan for agreeing and doing this with me!
