Happy love month!
How was your valentine’s day? I hope you all had a great one with your loved ones.
I, myself, had a splendid heart’s day with Mackie as we spent quality time together at our house amidst all the couples dating outside. We didn’t go out to a fancy lunch/dinner date, but he visited me at home. He surprised me with flowers, brought me my food cravings and we watched a movie together. What a perfect crowd-free valentine’s date! lol. I appreciate him for compromising his time to rest after and before his work to be able to spend precious time with me. Every day feels like a valentine’s day with him. Our man deserves recognition for always making us feel special. Right?
I can’t imagine how fast a year goes by, it feels as if it was just yesterday when I was posting about singleness and self-love, and now here I am ecstatic to share a gushy-mushy blog post — THE COUPLE TAG in a blog edition.
Since it’s love month, I’d figured it’s the best time to introduce my boyfriend, and I think it’s fun to do it in a question and answer portion so you could get to know him and us better. I’ve seen this post all over YouTube — the Boyfriend/Girlfriend/Couple Tag Questions — but I’m bringing you all this tag post in a blogging style because we don’t shoot vlogs.
These questions are from the “Boyfriend Tag” to see how well your boyfriend knows you and about your relationship, but we’ll be answering each question together not just him and so I named it — the Couple Tag. Mackie’s answer will be in a regular text while mine would be in italics. So without any ado, let’s get right into the questions.
1. Where and when did we first meet?
— We met at the office in January 2018.
— We were former co-workmates.
2. When and Where was our first date?
— April 22, 2018. I sent a message and asked her if she’ll go to church, and if I can go with her, so we attended church together for the first time.
— Hmm. That’s the first time we went out together as friends. But I don’t think it’s our first date haha. It’s a bit difficult to label a particular time as our “first date” because since then we hang out almost every day.
3. What was your first impression of me?
— Maldita, mataray, masungit. Hahahahaha. When we became friends though, I noticed that she smiles a lot.
— On my part, in which I was entirely wrong, I thought Mackie was bi-sexual haha. But I was never wrong when I knew that he’s extrovert and outgoing.
4. When did you meet my family?
— Met her parents on October 6, 2018, and her relatives on Christmas day.
— Met his family and relatives in September 2018 after our hike at Mt. Balagbag and started communicating with his mom abroad in November 2018.
5. Who said “I love you” first?
— Her? Hahahaha. Okay, me. 😀
— Him. hahaha. He said “Mahal kita, Mahal kita” after serenading me through phone call when he thought I’ve already fallen asleep.
6. What is the first thing you noticed about me?
— Her introvert personality. She’s very quiet and isolated.
— His eyes. Haha
7. Favorite feature about each other?
— Her lips and skin complexion. 😍
— definitely his eyes and his smile.
8. How do you feel when you think of me?
— I feel blessed and thankful. ❤️❤️❤️
— I feel loved and special.
9. What is my best personality trait?
— She’s the most caring and thoughtful. I appreciate her whenever after I took her home instead she rest and sleep because she’s tired and sleepy — she waits for me and makes sure I got home safely too.
— Mackie is an ESTP while I’m an INFJ, so his personality contrast mine but I love that we share a similar sense of humor. He’s also sensitive to my feelings like he exactly knows when I need him to say nothing at all and just put his arms around me and hug me. I also love his childlike personality — he’s curious, fearless, energetic and fun-loving.
10. What pisses you off?
— Whenever we’re running late.
— he has this kind of tone of voice that really pisses me off. But most of the time he makes me smile and laugh. Haha
11. What do we argue most about?
— I don’t think that we argue much at all. If we had argument, it was mostly due to my lack of sleep and rest.
— We rarely argue that’s one thing I love about our relationship, but when we do, it would be just minor arguments about anything. Our little arguments usually arise whenever either of us is tired, sleepy or I’m on my PMS haha. That’s when I often tend to misconstrue what he did or said. But it is always resolved almost immediately.
12. Who usually wins our argument?
— No one wins. Hahaha 😅
— Me. Lol. It depends on what we’re arguing about haha.
13. What can you do to lift my spirits on a day I am feeling very low?
— I’ll stay by her side, make her smile, and never leave her until she gets fine.
(It works. I’m a clingy girlfriend and his presence is enough to lift me up when I’m down)
— Cheer him up. Affirm him. And remind him of his identity in Christ.
14. Who is more jealous?
— Me. Hahahaha
— I think it’s me.
15. How long have we been together?
— 10 months since we’ve started dating exclusively and 6 months since we became official.
— We’ve known each other since January 2018. We became casual friends in March 2018. Our intimate friendship started roughly last week of April 2018 then he laid his intention in May 2018 until we became official six months ago.

I hope you get to know us a little better. Let us continue spreading the love. ~
