I seriously had a lot of fun with this tag because for the most part, I didn’t have to write the content!!! 🤣
In this tag, I had my boyfriend answer questions to see how well he actually knows me and about our relationship. This was really interesting to do because, if you didn’t know yet, my boyfriend Victor and I are in a LDR (long distance relationship).
I was also nominated by Chelsea and Brian from Two of a Mind, who are in a LDR too!! Isn’t that cool?! Check out their post for the Boyfriend Tag HERE, I thought it was super interesting to read.
Without further ado, let’s get right into the questions, shall we?!
Where did we meet?
V: We have met one another through the software Discord, specifically on a server known as “Maple Global”.
G: Yes. Discord is a app / online chat system for gamers. And we met through a specific server that was for the original game, MapleStory! But we happened to really start conversing through the topic of anime…
Where was our first date?
V: It is a bit difficult to properly label a certain time as our “first” – but I suppose it would have been the first official day which Geraldine spent in Canada. We opened up the day with acquiring the vehicle we’d be utilizing for the next two weeks, and then we drove off to various stores; simply talking and getting to know each other in real life rather than over the internet. It may not have been as romantic as in the movies, but I will never forget the times we have spent together – they will forever be my treasures.
G: This is true. It wasn’t a conventional one but I do cherish it as well ❤
What was your first impression of me?
V: My first impressions – starting with online – were that I had found a fellow enthusiast anime-consumer. I had always found the conversations to be of an interesting nature, and had always been glad that she had either questions or having decided to share her opinion of things. Which opened up a large variety of topics that we would discuss, seemingly about everything yet nothing at the same time. Never being one for much socializing, it was surprising that we had spent every single day texting each other (6-10 hours a day!). It seemed like we had a lot to talk about nothing 🙂 My first impression before we have even shown each other what we’ve looked like, was that she was an interesting individual who shared similar interests to me. Which was quite an unusual thing, as I often did not care too much about talking with others. I am tremendously appreciative that she had taken the effort to get to know me, and that we had ended up as we did now.
In terms of first impressions when having had finally met one another in real life… I was quite nervous initially. I would have many worries before she had even arrived at the airport: “What if her flight got delayed, or she got on the wrong one?”, “I hope that she wouldn’t have a bad experience here with me…”, etc. Though those feelings quickly evaporated as I came to learn that she was not all that different from her online persona, and I felt intimately bonded with her. By the end of the two weeks together, it felt quite crushing that we would have to be separated – as if we were together forever.
G: Don’t even remind me 😭
When did you meet my family?
V: I had never met Geraldine’s family in an official capacity. I have however met both her mother and one of her cousins over the online-format. Her mother did not like me much at first, but I feel like she’s been warming up to me – having started to recognize that I genuinely do care for her daughter. Her cousin is interesting to say the least, though I do like his distinct… -ness. I felt as if we got along well, and that we would be able to be friends.
G: Not that my mother didn’t like HIM per se, but rather because we met online and there are many things that could have been lied about since we can’t technically be together physically. But yes, she’s warmed up to him a lot more!
Do I have any weird obsessions?
V: I personally do think she has some weird obsessions. The weirdest one would undoubtedly be for her love of shoes. I’ve seen pictures of the amount of shoes she has, and I still cannot believe that she actually has that amount. Like a lot. A lot. She had been trying to get me more shoes, because my one-to-two pairs of shoes was not enough. “What if you need to dress up formally, you could use some dress shoes!”. She’s been trying to infect me. Sending me down the spiral of madness with her obsession over shoes. She has a lot of weird obsessions. If I listed them all, I bet I’d be writing all year round. But despite her weirdness, I still love her for whom she is.
G: Excuse me, I do NOT have that many shoes! It just seems staggering compared to his 2 pairs. Also, it’s not a weird obsession. I’m sure many of you reading this will agree!
How long have we been together?
V: We have personally known each other a little before the 25th of February 2017, though we have started our conversations directly with one another upon that same date. It would not be until the 31st of March 2018, that we would be going out together officially. We may have only been together for roughly 8 months now, but hopefully we will be together forever from henceforth.
G: Dating – 03/31/18. Known each other since 02/25/17. Yes
What was the first thing you noticed about me?
V: The very first thing I had noticed about Geraldine in a physical sense… was that I appreciated the way her head was shaped. She has a nice head. Nice face too. I liked everything about her physically.
My first impression before we have even shown each other what we’ve looked like, was that she was an interesting individual who shared similar interests to me. Which was quite an unusual thing, as I often did not care too much about talking with others. I am tremendously appreciative that she had taken the effort to get to know me, and that we had ended up as we did now.
G: Yes, Victor likes head shapes. *chuckles*
What do we argue about the most?
V: I personally do not think that we argue much at all. The only times that I do recall that we had a bad experience, was mostly due to my own lack of sensitivity during particular times. I’m often sarcastic in our conversations, sassy, and always looking to make her laugh with jokes (some bad, some good)… (they’re all good! She just doesn’t appreciate them. Hmph.) But such a persona can cause some issues during more emotional times, and she always had some sort of victim-complex and thus apologizes or otherwise thinks she is somehow to blame (I really hate that, and wish I could help her be more confident in herself). I am constantly trying to be more mindful of what I say, or what I do because I genuinely only want the best for my girl. Sometimes I fumble, but I try to console her best as I can. We talk about those moments together, and try to reach an understanding. I think we have a good relationship with how our shared goal is to be as communicative with one another as possible.
G: I get my girl days and that’s often when I tend to get hurt because I misconstrued what he said. So it’s really my faul- … I’m sorry! I’m always apologizing 😂😭
Who wears the trousers in the relationship? (maybe)
V: I feel as if no one in particular wears the “trousers” in the relationship. We both have our share of weaknesses, which the other makes up for with their strengths in that domain. Geraldine stresses out quite easily about things, while I am laid back (sometimes a bit too laid back!) I personally do not get pushed around by other people that easily (she however can easily push me around, haha) and she through her kindness and thoughtfulness gets more easily pushed around (she pushes me around out of kindness and care). We both respect each other’s thoughts and feelings over whichever matter – so we often work together.
G: That is true. I rely on him a lot for emotional support and making sense of a lot of things in life, whereas he also relies on me for support in other ways, and being able to get things done! We are a team 🤭💪
If I’m watching tv, what am I watching? (Maybe)
V: I do not have any clear-cut idea as to what exactly she would watch on television. But Geraldine seems to have a fond appreciation of comedy, as well as animation. I know for a fact she HATES horror. I am fond of animation as well (though comedy is more eh to me), and LOVE horror. Nice contrast between us two.
G: Yes we mix well together when it comes to entertainment.
What is one food I don’t like?
V: Hmm. I’m drawing a blank here. I know more about foods she does like, than otherwise. Beans? Broccoli?
G: I actually had to think about it. So, fair enough that he doesn’t know. Bologna. I had one incident as a child where I ate it and ended up getting sick to my stomach because of it! So I stay away from it.
What size are my feet?
V: After having extensively studied the fine qualities of her feet, I have determined that she is a size 8. (I don’t know! Who asks these sorts of questions!?)
G: 7.5 US 😛 close enough! In heels I change to like a 7.
What is my favourite kind of sandwich?
V: I am under the impression that she has a fondness for tuna sandwiches, although she may like something else even more.
G: YES! Tuna sandwich!! 🙂
What is one talent that I have?
V: I am not sure if anyone from the blog has seen it yet, but Geraldine is an amazing artist! She can draw stick-figures like no other. We sometimes play skribbl.io together, and she very often nearly beats my personal talent in the stick-figure drawing. But her best talent has to be her ability to make me smile whenever I think of her.
G: How dare you! I can draw fairly realistic stick-figures! 💙
Where was our first kiss?
V: Our first kiss was within the confines of my home on the bed.
What colour are my eyes?
V: Chocolate Brown.
What is something you do that I wish you wouldn’t?
V: There are only two things that I can think of that Geraldine wished that I would not do. The first would have to be about being less “snappier” during any of our gaming expeditions – which I can get due to having more ease with navigating through a game. It’s a work-in-progress. The second thing that comes to mind, is that she does not appreciate my lack of caring whenever it comes to myself. I often neglect myself (whether health, or personal desires and the like) and I can be a bit difficult with receiving help from other people (including Geraldine).
G: Yes. I’m super slow when it comes to games so I need a lot of time to get used to things – and patience from the partner. And yes, it often upsets me when he doesn’t care much for himself. He’s getting much better now though.
What can I spend hours doing?
V: Geraldine could probably spend hours perusing products at a Bath and BodyWorks shop – she does like fragrances, lotions, and the like. She already spends hours talking with me. She would play more video games if she only had the time to do so.
G: Yessss. B & BW. My jam. Honestly if I never blogged, I would be playing games right now. And talking to Victor of course!
If I could live anywhere where would it be?
V: We were actually thinking about where we, as a couple, would live together in a permanent setting. Provided that we would be able both work at whichever location – we were thinking of places such as Luxembourg, Sweden, Norway, Canada, and a few variety of tropical spots.
G: Yeah honestly we don’t know where we want to live yet. We’re pretty open in terms of where we move to, as long as we’re together! I told him to not to reject job offers based on location once he graduates from school!
