Sam Questions

You know that I have a boyfriend. His name is Sam. And I get asked a lot of questions about him. You may also know that while I really like answering questions, I'm bad at emotions. That's why it's taken a written survey of questions to coax me out of my sentimental snail shell and get me to talk about Sam. But I'm apparently going to.

It's late. It's really late. And I know I've been absent for SO LONG. And this is sort of a strange way to start blogging again. You might not be able to respect this. That's fine. Read the blog description.

I never promised you anything but the hope of me becoming better XD There's always room for improvement.

Without further ado, I give you a bunch of questions about my relationship with Sam.

What’s his name? Sam

How old is he? 17

When did you meet? February 2009

Where did you meet? Driver’s ed XD We were romantic from the start.

Was it love at first sight? Nope. The first time we talked I was chilling beside a baseball field waiting for my ride to get there. He was literally chasing after another girl XD I said “Hey” in an effort to be normal and not the weird nerd girl, and he spoke back. The conversation lasted about thirty-five seconds.

When was it 'official'? April 10th. Of this year.

How'd you start dating? I mean, we were like best friends, and he'd like me this way for a really long time. Eventually I let myself like him back.

Is he your first boyfriend? Yes, actually.

Do you think you have a good relationship? I really do.

Where was your first date? I don’t know what you’d call our “first date.” The first time we went somewhere after becoming official was to see The Avengers. So probably that.

How long until you met the parents? I mean, when we met we couldn’t drive, so parents were in the picture pretty early on.

When did you have your first kiss? *chest compresses* June…29th. But neither of us could remember it for sure, so also July 2nd XD

Where was it? Both on my couches, but different couches.

What did you first slow dance to? Some horrible Taylor Swift song at sophomore prom XD

Is there anything he has done for you that he wouldn’t do for another person? I mean, probably.

Has he ever written anything for you? I hear he’s writing me a letter. But that remains to be seen ;P

What’s your happiest memory of him? I was pretty excited when he asked my dad’s permission to date me. But that’s more “excited,” not just “happy.” So…I don’t know XD We’re happy a lot. We went on a picnic on June 10th (thanks, Sarah!), and that whole thing was really fun. And last Saturday I was in a terrible mood and he cheered me up completely XD I just like doing normal things with him. Going to Dollar General. Being bored at my house. Making Ramen.

What’s the sweetest thing he has ever done for you? He does lots of nice things. More than I do. I’m terrible at sweet things. My chest spazzes out and I get all self-conscious and end up being sarcastic or just quiet. But ANYWAY. I had on heels once as we were walking down a LONG gravel driveway. He let me wear his flip-flops and walked barefoot instead.

Does he buy you lots of gifts? I’m not really a gifts kind of person.

Does he know your biggest secret? Yes.

What’s your favorite thing to do together? We do a lot of “nothing.” Which entails playing Barrel of Monkeys and halfway watching movies.

When did you know you were falling in love? I don’t know. I’ve loved him for a lot longer than I’ve been IN love with him. I don’t know when it evolved.

Who said 'I love you' first? He did.

Is it true love? Yeah.

How do you know this? It’s constant. It’s different.

What’s his worst habit?
Saying “Word?” XD

What annoys you about him? He doesn’t always take me seriously. But honestly, that’s probably for the best XD

What is your favorite part of his personality? His audacious sense of irony.

Is there something he does that you don’t approve of? Not as much anymore, I don’t think. Actually no, I disapprove of him flipping me backwards underwater in the pool.

Is there something you do that he doesn’t approve of? Watch trashy reality TV, drive 94 down country roads, love Shinedown…XD

Has he ever hurt you badly?
Definitely not physically.

Would he ever cheat? I don’t think so.

Has he to your knowledge ever cheated? Not this time around XD

Do you trust him? The only possible problem is when he lies to himself.

Have you ever cried over him? *sigh* Fine. Yes.

Is he there when you need him the most?

Hair color? Red.

Eye color? I say they're teal.

What is your favorite part of his appearance? I like the expressions in his eyes. And his smile.

What does he smell of? I don’t remember the name of his body wash XD Something with “arctic” in it. But he always smells the same and I love it.

Whats he wearing when you picture him in your head? A green T-shirt and khaki cargo shorts. {Wow, that was weird.}

How do you feel when he holds you?
{Good god. This whole section is one big chest-contracting moment of gasp-age. Good. Lord. Almighty. *continues*} Like…intensely happy? And calm.

How do you feel when you fall asleep and wake up in his arms?
Usually I spazz out inside, but that’s just because I feel like I’ve been rude by falling asleep. Other than that, I feel the above.

How does it feel when he touches you? Like a tiny fist of adrenaline sitting in the pit of my stomach.

Does his touch give you goose bumps? Yeah.

Does he kiss your neck? Yeah.

Your tummy? No.

Your forehead? I think. Probably.

Could you be without him? Yeah. I’d rather not though.

Is the relationship getting serious? We wouldn’t be dating if we didn’t seriously like each other.

Do you think about him constantly when your apart? First of all, it’s “you’re.” Second of all, I do think about him a good bit.

How long have you been together? Like two and a half months officially.

Can you see a future together? Yes, but I also realize that we have a lot of experience to go before we’re fully matured. So anything can happen.

Would you like to get married? If it still seems like a good idea when it’s the right time.

Have children? Of course.

Where can you see your relationship in 5 years time?
I know we’ll still love each other, in some way.

Do you know there is definitely no-one better out there for you? I don’t know that yet, and he can’t know that I’m the best for him. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t the best for each other right now.

How do you know this? I didn’t answer a black-and-white yes, you automated survey question.

Are you scared he might find someone better? If he does, I’ll be happy for him. And I genuinely mean that.

Is he your best friend as well as your lover? Aside from Cassidy, yes.

Does he come first over everyone else in your life?
That’s intense. He’s way up there on the list, but, like, I have a little sister XD

Would you die for him? Yes.

Whats the funniest thing you have ever done together? Buy lots of Adventure Time apparel, maybe XD

Say something that only you two understand? Pick up Chet last.

Do you have nick names for each other? Not really. His “codename” was/is PC, so I’ve used that like four times.

Does he make you laugh?
Is that even a question? Yes.

Do you wrestle? Kind of?

Is he ticklish?
In like one tiny spot.

Are you? Not per se XD


Food? Steak. Swedish Fish. Potatoes.

Drink? Hm, Cheerwine?

Sport? Lacrosse, I guess.

Movie? I don’t actually know for sure.

TV Show? King of the Hill and Adventure Time.

Song? It changes.

Past time? Burning Sand 3? :P Music, hanging out with friends.

Thing about your personality? He likes that I’m intelligent XD

One of your features? He’s told me he likes my eyes, but I don’t actually know what his favorite is.

Animal? Penguin

Color? Red

Aftershave? I don’t know XD

Clothing style? Like…comfortable? Purple things :P

Band? It changes. But I feel like it's been at different times Dinosaur Jr., Foo Fighters, Fallout Boy…


Song? I guess it used to be “Such Great Heights,” but I don’t know that we have one this time. Do we?

DVD? Tangled? XD Adventure Time.

Place to hang out? Pretty much my house.

Meal to cook together? Ramen XD


Time you saw him?
Forty minutes ago.

Kissed him? An hour and a half ago XD

Spoke to him? Five seconds ago.

Text he sent you? “...what?” XD

Fight? We don’t really fight. We do argue, but it’s not really ever a big deal.

Is this love? I’m pretty sure you asked that already. But yes.

Are you both happy? Yes.



  1. This was really cute, and I love how mature you are about the relationship :)

  2. Nice way to get back to blogging Stephanie. I was smiling through most of this :)

  3. This is awesome :).

    So.. have y'all dated before?

  4. Nice one. Tough questions, nice honest answers.

  5. Alana, we kind of dated before, but I got distracted and ruined everything and dated someone else and stuff. So there's no real black and white answer to that. But that's what "this time around" means.
