@sit1010:Your wedding is the day before mine! We’re getting close πŸ™‚

 
I’m 21, FI is 25. We are getting married a few weeks after our 2 year anniversary. I’m a complete girly girl, love to read, run for fun (and exercise) and I really enjoy living in California! I’m an administrative assistant, taking classes to get a degree to teach English at the high school level. FI played Baseball in college for 4 years as a pitcher and still enjoys playing for fun, is a Coors Light salesman and loves peanut butter and honey sandwiches. We love to travel (especially around our state), hike, go camping and to cook together.

Hi girls!  I’m 24 years old, and my partner is 25.  We are getting married this September!  I am graduating from law school in less than 3 weeks (holy cow) and am taking the bar exam in July.  I don’t have a job lined up, which is freaking me out a bit, but I’m just going to get through with the wedding and then figure it all out afterwards. 

I live in San Diego and love spending time with my adorable little dogs!  Yay for the 20 somethings!

I’m 23 (ok I’m actually 22 but my birthday is coming up so I’m adjusting to the new number now) FI is 24.  I’m a complete type A, OCD, control freak.  (sad but true) I am currently taking a break from school because I am stuck between two majors that I want to pursue so I am taking some time to figure that out.  FI and I are homebodies and don’t like to go out a lot like some of our friends.  We see no sense in shouting over bar music when the beer at home is cheaper and we can actually talk to the people with us!  We love our dog and our families and can’t wait to continue to grow together!  FI and I love to watch crime shows together and be outside!  There probably a bunch more I could talk about but that is the gist!

@sit1010:We live in Central California, the town we live in is about 2 hours from San Francisco. We’re actually getting married in a town that’s located in the mountains right before you enter into Yosemite National Park. I like the variety of living here, we’re about the same distance from the beach, the mountains or the city!

I’m 25 I have a 6 year old son, his dad is 23 and we have split custody we were a high school relationship, he got shot in a robbery last year and will never walk again. I dropped out of high school but got my GED I went to college but got bored and quit after a year, I worked for 5 years at a daycare and hated it, I was done this past August actually, I haven’t worked since and I really hope I won’t have to,. I moved into my own place when I turned 21 and then I met my ex FI we were together for a few years he was my world, he cheated on me, I found out at a carnival in front of 500 people. We tried to work it out, he started randomly taking off with his friends he was 21, I knew it wasn’t going to work… I packed his stuff and left it at his work, a month later I met my FI at a cabin birthday party on an island we started dating and this month makes it officially a year! He’s going to be a police officer… =/ I’m learning to deal with this a little more everyday. lol

Hi Ladies! FI and I are both 21 and we’re getting married next year, we’ll both be 22 and we’ll have been together for 6.5 years. We’re high school sweethearts who have been through a lot together. We just moved from Orlando to Houston and we’re (read: I’m) slowly getting adjusted (read: I hate it and he loves it). I worked at a pet boarding facility for 2 years and just recently quit and now I work at home. I’m going back to school in the fall for sociology, I think. I love to read and play with my dogs. I can thank them for getting me back into shape a little bit at least. FI and I both love cars and drag racing and may or may not have planned our wedding to fall on the weekend of the major race we go to in Florida every year so we can plan it as our ann. trip. πŸ™‚

Hi all!  I am 24 and my FI is 26.  We will be 25 and 28 when we get married.  I am currently in law school, set to finish in December.  We are getting married the following June!  So right now, I am in school and working at a local law firm as a clerk.  He is a teacher/coach.  We live in Alabama (yes we have running water, electricity and even internet! hehe) and will stay here after we get married.  We have been trying to go to the gym together more recently and have started a new Friday night RedBox movie tradition.

@LeahP:Not having a job is so scary!!!  I wanted to wait until I was totally done with the bar and all that to get married because I would not be fun to live with! hehe.

@sit1010: Absolutely fantastic idea. Don’t know why I didn’t think about it. Perhaps you should ask a moderator to sticky it to the top of the board.

 

Hi everyone! I am Ms. Polar Bear: I am 23 years old, have a bachelor’s in sociology and am starting my master’s program Fall 2011. It took an abusive relationship when I was young to snap me out of what little immaturity I had left at 19 (mom calls me an ‘old soul’). I enjoy things like Dr. Who, World of Warcraft, reading/writing.

Mr. Polar Bear is 22 years old, is going to graduate this May (woot!) and will be going into teaching. He also enjoys Dr. Who, World of Warcraft, cooking, and is a huuuge comic book nerd. Oh and polar bears…obviously.

We met in a fiction writing class and four months into the relationship we knew that we wanted to be together for the rest of our lives. He has been with me for all the good times, for the bad times (I found out that I have a predisposition to cancer and will have to remove my ovaries at or before 35), and all the times in-between.

It is now two years later, and we have officially signed the contract to our wedding venue (we’re having a Disney World Wedding).

That’s us!

Hey everyone. I’m 26 (will be 27 later this month) and FI is 28.

We met 7 years ago when I was 19 (he was 20) while in college.

I grew up in Southern CA and came east for school. Fell in love with the east coast and moved to NYC after graduating.

I work as Business Analyst/Project manager in NYC.

FI is currently running his company’s London office and we are discussing moving to London for 2-3 years after the wedding.

We have a cat named Tommy who we adopted from the ASPCA 2 1/2 years ago. He’s looking forward to wearing a monocle and becoming a British kitty.

I love that FI and I have already been together so long/know each other so well and we are only starting on our life together. Getting married and moving abroad will be an amazing new chapter to our lives.

Hi Girls,

I am 23, FI 24(almost 25). We are getting married in October, about 3 months before our 4 year anniversary.  I am graduating from school in May with an associates in Administrative Assisting and don’t have a job lined up either. We live in a small town (less than 2,000 ppl) in IL and love it.  We are hoping to eventually move to a farm in Iowa because we love it over there.  FI is a diesel mechanic and also loves pb&h sandwiches lol.  We are both tattoo addicts and that is going to be part of our ceremony. πŸ™‚

I’m 27, 28 in three weeks. A lot of my life used to be about waiting. Waiting to switch to another school where I wouldn’t be bullied, waiting to graduate high school, to get out of my parents’ house and live on my own, go to university, get a job…all of which I did. But getting married was never really on that list. I guess I just assumed it would happen eventually, but it wasn’t on my agenda.

I had my fair share of boyfriends along the way, and while a couple of them seemed to think I was the one for them, I just couldn’t envision spending my life with anyone. When I was in my last year of my undergrad I met a guy I briefly thought might be the one, but after almost two years, it just wasn’t happening. I decided that no matter what, I didn’t want to get married. If I loved someone enough to spend my life with them, that’s what I’d do…I just wouldn’t say “I Do”.

That ex had a roommate, who I’d always gotten along with well. Roommate and I started hanging out casually, but although I developed a huge crush on him I didn’t think he felt the same way. Besides, I had applied to five grad schools in the UK and was likely going to be moving there for a year to do a Master’s degree.

But after almost two months, I couldn’t ignore how much he made my heart flutter, and after a gruelling self-debate over whether I wanted to put myself out there to be rejected, I told him how I felt, and he said he felt the same.

I knew this was it on our first date, and he knew it too. A few months later, on a summer evening walk, he simply said, “Marry me”, and I said yes.

Then I ditched him for grad school on another continent, lol. But we visited each other when we could, and spent my Easter vacation in Italy together, and in September of 2009, I came home to the man who proved me wrong, and married him on our three year anniversary this past February.

I wish this kind of happiness on everyone.

I just recently turned 24. I have been dating my FI for three years, we got engaged right near our three year anniversary! We will be getting married exactly a year to the day he proposed. πŸ™‚

I work as a professional graphic designer and programmer, specializing in web design. My FI actually owns the business I currently work for lol, but we very much built this business together. When he met me he had just started up a small website business (just him by himself) and when he found out I was a graphic designer with tons of web experience we started working together. The business has grown so much since then!

I am also a professional classical singer. I perform for the occasional wedding and I just finished recording my first little album! My other hobbies are baking and cooking.

My FI is a little over one month older than me. He is very clever and very business savvy. He started his very first business when he was just 14 years old. He bought a plotter for $1500 (which was a LOT of money for a 14 year old) using saved up birthday money and a loan from his dad and started his own sign making business. He kept at the sign business until just before he met me. He’s never worked for anyone but himself his whole life.

We met through friends. At first we were long distance (He’s from Ontario, I was living near Montreal), but it wasn’t too bad because we would both visit each other for weeks at a time anyway. We moved in together about 6 months ago. πŸ™‚
