The Boyfriend Blogs – Part 2

In my first post introducing Jacob as my boyfriend (read it here!), we filled out a short Q&A so everyone could get to know us better as a couple. That post quickly became my 2nd most read ever, so I thought we could do another Q&A filled with questions from some of my friends! The questions are always fun to answer so he and I can see what each others’ responses are and how we’re similar or different. I hope you guys enjoy reading our statements and if you have a question you’d like us to answer, leave it in the comment section!

  • How do you keep up your relationship when it’s long distance?

Jacob: We FaceTime daily whenever we’re free because it gets boring texting her all the time (She knows it does) From time to time, we would also send letters to each other, but we stopped because she sent it to the wrong address and it took almost a month for me to receive it.
Noelle: I love FaceTiming whenever we’re both available! We do it a few times a day and will talk, do homework or watch videos together while we’re on the phone. We also text off and on and sometimes call each other when we can’t FaceTime. FaceTime is definitely key to staying in touch when we’re so far away because it feels like we’re right next to each other.  

  • Where is your favorite place to go together in Hawaiʻi?

Jacob: Ala Moana mall (When she’s not being a Debbie Downer) – inside joke!
Noelle: I like when we go to Dave & Busters because that was where we technically had our first date. I also love going to Kapolei park and laying in the grass together. 

  • If you could road trip anywhere in America together where would you go and what would you do?

Jacob: I would want to road trip to every state and go to all of their carnival/fairs that they have.
Noelle: I’ve always wanted to go skiing so it would be fun to road trip to Colorado and ski or snowboard together! 

  • What is one thing you wish each other would do more often?

Jacob: Communicate (lol such a hypocrite).
Noelle: I wish he would write me more letters because his are my favorite! 

  • Who said I love you first and how did it happen?

Jacob: I think it was me. Also, I’m probably the first one to say it on the blog too (I love you Noelle). lol
Noelle: He said it first around December last year, but I can’t remember exactly how it happened! (I love you too!)

  • What movie describes your relationship?

Jacob: I’d say the movie Up because we first met each other and we planned to do everything together, then she got word that her flight was leaving before mines and she left me by myself 🙁
Noelle: I think our relationship is similar to 13 Going on 30 because we were best friends first and even though it took me a while to get it together, we ended up together!

  • What’s the first thing you noticed about each other the first time you met?

Jacob: The first thing that I noticed about her when we first met was how kind and uplifting she is. She always invited me to hang out with her outside of school even when we both didn’t drive at the time. 
Noelle: I remember noticing his smile and how his presence lit up the room.

  • When did you realize you love each other?

Jacob: While spending time with Noelle, I just felt that she is the person that I want to spend the rest of my life with. I know it’s weird to say that now, but I am 110% sure that is what I want to do. We’ve been through so much and we’re still together. I’m not sure when she felt the same way, but she probably didn’t want to say it because she’s never game to admit feelings until the other person does (Flashback to high school).
Noelle: I had a crush on him throughout the first year we became friends, but I realized I loved him when I would drop him off at his house and I didn’t want to say goodbye. I think it was sometime during my first year of college after we had our first kiss! I also want to be with him forever too.
