Kels: We had a mutual friend and I’m pretty sure the first time I saw her she was jumping on this friend’s back. She was laughing and seemed super goofy. Maybe even a little obnoxious, but I was instantly attracted to her goofy-ness. She also talked a lot about breaking her nails, but in the same breath was starting a fight on the field. A walking contradiction the moment I met her.
Dev: We met at soccer… the first day I don’t exactly remember what happened but I do remember the second day like it was yesterday! We were at a bowling alley and it was some team bonding/ getting to know everyone on our team. I was mesmerized by her the whole evening, I just thought the whole night, I think I’m going to make this girl my best friend and now here we are 3 years later!
Both describe your proudest moment of your partner.
Kels: The moment she told the world about us. Im a woman and she is too…if you haven’t noticed ha. That shit can be scary, and she did it in the most eloquent and strongest way. She left little room for commentary, and I was just so proud of her bravery in that moment. I’m pretty sure she will never stop inspiring me and making me proud. *what Dev wrote in her post will be posted at the bottom of the blog
Dev: I don’t have a proudest moment.. She makes me proud every single day, each day more then the last. If I had to pick something that maybe stood out a little bit more then the rest it would have to be all of the work she does for LGBTQ+ Youth. I am so proud of her for helping those kids even when her world at times has come crumbling down around her she always has managed to make the time and effort for them.
If you could describe significant other in one word what would it be? Why?
Kels: Passionate. She loves passionately and hates passionately…thank god im on the love side. Haha Seriously though, she gives everything she does a hundred percent and throws herself into anything with her heart on her sleeve…that’s including her relationship with me. I am so thankful she has this quality or she would have never given me a shot.
Dev: “Amazing” she has brought so much happiness into my life she is all around an amazing and wonderful person. I feel like no one word could do her justice so that’s why I picked amazing!
More Q&A throughout below!
My partners first kiss made me think….what? Kels: I hope this is better than kissing a man Dev: “Oh shit… my parents are gonna be soooo PISSSSED”
When was the first time you became aware of your partner? Kels: The moment she got on the floor to demonstrate for me what a whale looks like. She literally flopped around like a fish on the floor, and she did it in front of other people without a care in the world. Dev: She was some cool tattooed chick.. I was intrigued right when I first met her… who the hell knew I’d be here today!
What is your favourite way of spending time together? Dev: EATING, eating then probably eating some chips after that.. while watching Netflix! Kels: yeah what she said.
What would be your advice to couples for making a relationship last a lifetime? TALK TALK TALK. Communication is so important, even when it’s uncomfortable. And laugh.. lots!
Which fruit/ vegetable do you think your partner resembles and why? Kels: A passion fruit because she is passionate (see what I did there). Also because it has this tough skin, but is super gooey on the inside. I know im impressed too that I could come up with such a great response to this question. BOOM. Dev: First of all .. I kinda resented the soft on the inside comment at first HAHA second of all this question was obviously created by Kelsey.. because who normally compares their partners to fruits or veggies if you don’t already have a brilliant answer… it could be very dangerous.
If you both had one day left to live what would you do together? We would travel to Greece and eat all the Greek food #tzatziki while listening to fast car on repeat whilst eating chips and decadent desserts… can you tell we like food?? Oh and you cant forget the vodka smashes! What is your song and why? Fast car by tracey chapman, we know its strange but it was when we both realized our same appreciation for music. The meaning of the song- the need to escape as well was significant.
How does your partner behave to get out of trouble? Dev: Im perfect I don’t get in trouble! Kels: That is a god damn lie. She will say something like this to make me laugh. OR she whines and does this stupid little pout face.
When did you have your first fight and what was it about? Dev: Our first fight was over banana bread.. Ya… you read that correctly BANANA BREAD.. Kelsey got pissed because I was making it perfectly.. and she wasn’t doing it properly! Side note she was the one who started the fight HAHA! Kels: No, she was telling me what to do. Even down to how I was stirring the damn mix. I wasn’t going fast enough or something. Little control freak.
What is the one thing your partner does for you that they hate but nevertheless does because you like it? Dev: probably like 90 percent of the shit I ask her to do.. I will fully admit I can be pretty friggen annoying when I want to be! I will literally ask her to get up and get me something even if I’m closer to it. And she does most of the time without even the slightest complaint! Kels: I would say the dishes but that would be inaccurate…cause she doesn’t do them. She doesn’t like being told what to do. For the most part, if I ask her to do something for me she will. She is always there to listen and be a shoulder if I need it. When I ask her tickle my back she doesn’t do it the way I like. Dev: In response to “when I ask her to tickle my back she doesn’t do it the way I like” … WELL.. that’s the problem having some expectation!
*"I will not hide her, so that you can stay comfortable. I will not hide her because you think it’s wrong. I will not let anyone try to put me in a box and label me, I will make this my strength, for then it will never be my weakness. There is no right and wrong when it comes to love. All I know is that I would have to be brave. Not foolhardy, not in an effort to prove that I haven’t been terrified- but genuinely brave. Brave enough to not abandon my true self and refuse to let anyone else dictate my path, brave enough to stand my ground quietly, and brave enough to use her as my armour, for then she will never be used to hurt me. ...and brave enough to let love win."
