I’m curious. What do you all do (and SO) for a living? What are your ages?
I’m 25 turning 26 next month. I’m an English language teacher at the college/university level. My BF is an IT/managed services guy (his gifts are always “pricey”…darn Apple products!). He’s 28.

FI and I are both 24 and will be 25 in March (he’s 2 weeks and 1 day older than me). I’m an auditor and he’s a software developer/co-owner of an independent mac and iPhone development firm.

@mireisen: I’m 26, and a (second & final year!) graduate student getting my masters in social work. Most of my work previously (and currently) relates to violence against women. My internship right now is as a therapist for incarcerated violent male offenders. When I graduate this spring I’ll be trying to get a job as a therapist for a community mental health agency.
My parter is 28 and in his second year of medical school. He plans on going into pediatrics / primary care.

I’m almost 24 (end of the month!) and am finishing pharmacy school. (Ok, I’m on year 6 of 7… I still have a bit left, but I’m definitely over the hard parts!). I’m planning on completing a one year residency and obtaining a Master’s of Publich Health degree. I’m hoping to work on community based heatlh programs and teach at a pharmacy school when I’m done.
My husband is 24 and works in the IT field. He works for a growing, local company and his job is constantly evolving – which he loves.

He’ll be 23 in February, I’ll be 23 in March. Right now I’m a counselor at a group home for adolescents and he’s a full time student with a part time job at K-mart but will be an electrical engineer after he graduates. Wherever he finds a job I’ll probably try to look into ABA therapy training/graduate programs/jobs.

I’m 22 and I’m a full time grad student (I have a degree in psych & criminology). I also work part time as a Social Media coordinator for a college within a big university. My DH is 23 (24 in March) and he has had a rough time finding a job here in Miami, so he’s working full time as a server at PF Changs while looking for a career type job (he has a degree in journalism).

I am 28 and a high school english teacher.
My sweet fiance is 45 and a newspaper editor..
We are 17 years apart!! This is not a big deal to us, but it seems to be for other people. I get really tired of hearing, “Just how old ARE you?!!?”
But I digress..
I love my sweet future hubby!

@mandb122: Oh that’s awesome! One of my BM’s has the same degree too. She’s working on getting into grad school right now for criminal justice administration. I’m studying criminal justice with plans to get a PhD in forensic psych.

@soonerpsych: Right now I’m a counselor at a group home. I originally was going to go into forensic psychology and still might one day but once FI gets a job and we figure out where we’re staying, I want to explore more of the psychology aspect of my degree. I’m thinking ABA therapy right now possibly to work with kids with autism but I’m still unsure where I’ll end up.

I’m 30 (31 in a week), getting my Ph.D. in history. That’s what my 33-year-old FI was doing too, but it wasn’t for him. So now he’s trying to figure out what to do with his life, and doing some freelance copyediting in the meantime.
