- Wedding: August 2015
Hi bees! I have been lurking on these boards for a while now but finally made an account! Here’s a little about myself and my dating story:
I am a 22 year old nurse in a busy emergency room and my boyfriend is a 24 year old 4th grade cyber school teacher. We have been dating for a year and a half. We went to high school together and were both in marching band- we even traveled to Hawaii and Europe together- but never said a word to each other! Then one day when I was in my dorm room doing homework and I got a Facebook message from him saying that hi, we never talked much, but I see we had a lot in common. We got to talking and eventually when I came home for Spring break we went on some dates. I will honestly say it felt like love at first sight. It turns out my best friend helped him plan out the original Facebook message! I guess he found me as a friend of a friend and thought I looked cool and “drop dead gorgeous” lol 🙂
I just graduated from college in May and got a job in the same town as my boyfrend. Actually I got my job first, and it just worked out perfectly that he got a job a few blocks away! I’m sure you all know that getting a teaching job is hard, and I’m so excited that he finally found one after being a substitute for two years. And I feel so lucky to have gotten a job right out of school. We plan to move in together within the next few months to be closer to where we work, insteading of commuting 30 minutes every day.
I am so excited to say that I really have found the man of my dreams. He is such a great communicator (which I can’t say about many men), he is so considerate, we have absolutely everything in common (all the same hobbies, sense of humor, religious beliefs, tastes in food and clothes, etc ), and he is the sweetest guy I know. We make it a habit to say “I love you” every day and I love him more and more every day I am with him. Even though it’s only been a year and a half, I feel like I’ve loved him my whole life. We just click. After two months of dating he asked when he was allowed to propose! Haha. We both plan on getting married and starting a family after we save some money and get stable with our jobs. My plan is to get married in another 2-3 years. I don’t want to be a young bride, and I feel that getting married young in general is a bit naive, so I want to wait a few years to grow into myself and my new career, but I can’t wait 🙂
I love reading everyone’s posts on these boards about their wedding details and I can’t wait to plan mine (even though I’ve basically already started haha!)
