  • Wedding: September 2015

How did you meet your SO? Online!  I was bored one night, and had recently read an article that “everyone should try online dating once.”  Oddly enough, he was the very first person to message me, and the only person I talked to that evening that I wanted to keep talking to (I became annoyed of the website and crazy number of messages received from just an hour on there).  We talked for 5 days in a logical progression – Facebook, then texting.  Then he asked me out.  The first date went well, but I was kind of seeing someone else at the time, and I’m bad at dating multiple guys at once.  So I decided to make my decision… I was going to stop seeing my now SO. He wanted to get together 2 days later, and during our time together I was going to tell him I just wanted to be friends.  Well, something CLICKED.  Seriously, I just suddenly KNEW this guy was something special and I knew I was going to try to make it work with him.  I grabbed his hand (literally) and didn’t let go all night.  The rest is history 🙂

How long have you been together? One year, 10 months

Who said I love you first?  We pretty much said it at the same time.  We were snuggling one evening, and he said, “I have something to tell you,” and I said, “That’s funny, I have something to tell you!”  The rest of the time was spent bugging each other to tell the other what it is.  I was stubborn, he caved first 😉  I responded immediately after.

Do you live together?  Yes

When’s the last time you saw your SO? This morning

When do you think you’ll be married? September 19th, 2015!

How long do you see being with your SO? I don’t like this question.  I’m in it for the long haul, baby.

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? Probably not, but I’m spoiled…. I already know he will marry me.  I’m not sure exactly how I would react in that situation.

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? All of them.  I seriously can’t pick a favorite if I tried.  When we’re just silly around each other, those are the best moments.

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? Since about March.  That’s when we started the ring process.

What would drive you apart? Anything significantly morally wrong

Your perfect wedding with your SO? Destination ourdoor wedding (in our case, domestic) with several close friends and family.  We’re going to Maine 🙂

How did you meet your SO? <br />We met in the 6th grade and were friends all throughout school.  In our early 20s, we each went different directions (me college and him military).  We both ended up back in our hometown and would see each other occasionally and always spoke.  One night on Facebook, I opted to message him to see how he was doing.  We started texting that night and then went out for dinner two nights later and have been together almost everyday since for the last year and four months.

How long have you been together?  <br />1 year and 4 months

Who said I love you first?  <br />Technically I said, “I know something and you should know it…I am in love with you!”  He teared up, smiled really big, hugged me and said in my ear, “I’ve loved you since day one, but I was afraid that would scare you away!”

Do you live together? <br />No, but he stays with me a lot. 

When’s the last time you saw your SO? <br />This morning 

When do you think you’ll be married? <br />By the end of the 2014-2015 school year, he said my students would be able to call me by a different name!

How long do you see being with your SO? <br />Don’t care for this question, but forever!

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? <br />Yes! I am 40 and the need to be married (that feeling you get when you’re younger) isn’t a big deal now. 

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? <br />The first night he spent the night at my house (nothing sexual happened) but he was sooooo nervous. He was like a little kid and I asked him, “Do I terrify you that badly?” He said, “No, but I love you so much I don’t want to screw it up!”

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? <br />Since May of 2014! I knew then that this was my future. 

What would drive you apart?<br />Cheating, taking advantage of me, and neglecting his son

Your perfect wedding with your SO? <br />We plan to elope either at a local National Park or in Savannah, GA

How did you meet your SO? I met waaaaaaay back in 2004, casually. We were introduced, and hung out quite a bit, through/with mutual friends. We went our separate ways and then ended up meeting each other again in 2009.

How long have you been together? We’ve been really close friends who casually flirted from 2009-2011. We both became long-distance best friends when we both joined the Armed Forces. We started dating (for real) in early 2013. We’ve known each other for 10+ years but have only been dating seriously for about 2.

Who said I love you first? He did. I told him that love was an overused term and that I really wanted to mean it when I said it to him. After I told him that, he looked me in the eye and said that he loved me from the very first moment he met me and that he loved me. It was adorable.

Do you live together?  Yes we do, adn we love just about every moment of it!!

When’s the last time you saw your SO? This afternoon at 1300.

When do you think you’ll be married? We’re going through so much right now, but sooner rather than later. There are several things that we have to iron-out before we can take the time and spend the money to, as he says it “do it right.”

How long do you see being with your SO? This entire life and the following one.

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? Absolutely. Both of us don’t see marriage as a requirement for happiness. We have already committed our lives to one another, so a wedding and a ceremony will just be icing on a cake.

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? Probably the day that he told me he had never met a woman like me before, and that he was enamored with me and that being so open and in-love scared him and made him crazy-excited all at the same time. He was just so open and honest and had his heart on his sleeve, and it was beautiful.

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? We’ve been ready for a while, but we want to make sure that all of our ducks are in a row before we go through with everything.

What would drive you apart? Murder. Or death.

Your perfect wedding with your SO? Elopement all the way!! Go somewhere fun, do something exciting!

How did you meet your SO? we went to highschool together, we were cool 9th grade, best friends in 10th, a little distant in 11th and finally admitted we had been fighting feelings all along and got together in 12th grade. 

How long have you been together? 3 and a half years officially. 

Who said I love you first? He did, via text message with my full name after lol. People always mispell my last name so the fact he spelled it out right was a big deal. I was screaming with my best friend when I read it aloud. 

Do you live together? Nope.

When’s the last time you saw your SO? Almost 3 weeks ago. SAD FACE

When do you think you’ll be married? We’ve set a timeline of about 4-6 years from now.

How long do you see being with your SO? To infinity and beyond lol. we have matching infinity tattoos 🙂

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldnt marry you? Hmmm this is a tough one. Marriage is really important to me so that makes a huge difference. I cant say for sure. But that would never happen as marriage is important to himas well, he wants the title of husband and wife, he said he doesnt understand the “lifelong girlfriend” thing

Whats your favorite memory of your SO? gosh there are entirely too many !! Prom is definitely up there..as cliche as it is, I will never forget that night. but there are so many other great memories

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? IDK. im not officially “waiting” as we both want to graduate college first and have stability financially, but we have been seriously discussing marriage for a while. Im not expecting a proposal anytime soon, but I do know that it is coming, if that makes sense.

What would drive you apart? Infidelity would be tough to get through..

Your perfect wedding with your SO? Our closest family and friends, around 65-85 guests in a at a historic mansion in the garden with an indoor reception that has large windows with a view of the beautiful garden (lol can you tell im describing my exact venue)

  • Wedding: December 1969

How did you meet your SO? 

We met online, he flew me to North crolina to meet him for the first time. he asked me out on fthe day I left to go back home (Canada) 

How long have you been together?  

We have been together for almost a year and a half! But have been talking for almost two years. 

Who said I love you first? 

he did, the day I left he wrote me a letter (that’s how he asked me out) and he said I love you in it. Lol 

Do you live together? no 

When’s the last time you saw your SO?

the last time I saw my SO was October 26! 

When do you think you’ll be married? 

im hoping August 04/2017. I graduate school April 2016 and for us to get married we have to apply for a K1visa for me to move to America, and that process takes up to a year 🙂 so I just want to give enough spsce to be accepted without cancelling a wedding! 

How long do you see being with your SO?i

i think I can see myself being with him for the rest of my life, and I just know that’s what wil happen.

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? 

Unfortunately, we can’t be together fully (living together, start a family etc) unless we were married. so if he didn’t not want that, he Would be saying he didn’t want us. Lol 

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? 

this is tough, there are so many good ones with him, but probably when we first met, and went to myrtle beach. Before we met we both had mutual feelings but didn’t want to make anything official until we met. And I was so nervous to meet him because I didn’t want him to think I wasn’t the person he thought. I guess i was ha! Either way it was the best week and it couldn’t of went any better! 

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? 

Probably just a few months ago, in a long distance relationship you really have to talk about your future. Deff when it’s from Canada to America. We both know the only way for this to happen is if we get married, but we also don’t want that to be the only reason. We want to do it because we are fully in love. We are, and both agreed It would happen after school. Priorities 

What would drive you apart? 

cheating, that’s a HUGE no no in my books and in his as well. It’s something I know I don’t have to worry about. 

Your perfect wedding with your SO?

barn wedding, with our friends and families and lots of alcohol 🙂 lol

How did you meet your SO? We met at a mutual friend’s 16th birthday party. He saw me come into the party with a big group of my friends but he said his eyes were instantly drawn to me and stayed there for the rest of the night. He asked me to dance and then asked me my name and we went from there. It was pretty funny now that I think about it because he was so nervous he forgot to tell me his name. lol

How long have you been together? 7 years, since we were 15. We are both 22 now.

Who said I love you first?  He did. It was a pretty romantic puppy love at the time, but has grown now,

Do you live together?  No

When’s the last time you saw your SO? Last week

When do you think you’ll be married? Maybe the end of 2016 or definitely 2017 when I am finally done with my Masters.

How long do you see being with your SO? Forever and ever lol.

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? No I would not, marriage is important to me, and if it wasn’t to him I would just assume we were not compatible.

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? I don’t necessarily have just one. But he is especially fond of the way we met. He reminisces on it all the time.

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? Um maybe a few months.

What would drive you apart? Cheating, drug use, different faiths.

Your perfect wedding with your SO? A really fun party with all of our closest family and friends. I have not put too much thought into the wedding because I don’t want to drive myself crazy waiting lol.

  • Wedding: July 2015

How did you meet your SO? I met him (P) through a mutual friend back in September of 2010 at a concert. We were briefly introduced. I was there with my bf at the time, but something about him sparked my interest. It was around this time that my relationship with the bf started going downhill and I ended up breaking up with him a few months later. I was in a really dark, heartbroken place for quite a while; partying ALOT and not taking the best care of myself for a couple months around Christmas and the New Year. I started seeing P around at social events and took more of an interest in him, and I could sense that he was interested in me too. One evening in January 2011, I was out at a bar and decided to text him to see what he was up to. He wanted to hang out, so he picked me up, we got a bottle of wine and went back to my place and… well… we’ve pretty much been inseparable ever since. 

It turns out that he had been going through a pretty nasty breakup with his gf at the time as well, and was in a really similar situation as myself. When we got together, we immediately got our lives back on track. We partied less excessively, were eating way better and both decided to go back to school. And we moved in together pretty quickly as well. 

How long have you been together? Almost 4 years

Who said I love you first? Hahaha, he did. He said jokingly it before we even got together actually, and it’s kind of funny now that we’re together. We were dancing at a club, together with the friend that I had originally met him through. But we weren’t like, dancing together, just around each other … I really having a good amount of personal space to dance in… like at least a two foot radius is ideal. So anyways, I’m dancing and some random dude comes up behind me, too close, and tries to grind up on me, and i quickly turn around and pretty aggresively tell him to fuck off. P sees me shut this guy down cold, and laughs and says “hahaha…I love you!”

Even though it was such an offhand, joking remark… it now seems rather significant considering how our lives ended up together. In fact, I don’t actually remember when we first said “I love you” seriously. lol. Go figure. I think it was maybe about a few/6 months later when we were making love one night.     

Do you live together? Yes indeed. And expecting a baby in a couple weeks.  

When’s the last time you saw your SO? About 2 hours ago before he left for work. 

When do you think you’ll be married? Next July sometime. 

How long do you see being with your SO? Hmmmm, I’d say at least the next 10 lifetimes. 

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? Totally… we consider ourselves a partnership and the piece of paper doesn’t really matter to us. We kind of just want to throw a big party! Aaaand… I like his last name better than mine, so I want to change my last name to his haha. 

What’s your favorite memory of your SO?  Hmmmm, I think the first time we went to a music festival in the Kootenays, in BC together. There was one day of the weekend that we just spent together wandering around, and had the most profound, magical, hilarious day that remains one of the best days I’ve ever had. He says the same thing. It might have been that day that we knew we were going to be together for a looooooong time. It was maybe 8months into our relationship. 

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? We knew pretty quick that we were probably going to be life partners. But we weren’t/still aren’t in too much of a rush. We did decide to get married over two years ago, on a vacation in Montreal… so I consider ourselves as having been unofficially engaged since then, but after I got pregnant in March, we decided to make it official to friends and family… and told people in June, bought a ring in September.  

What would drive you apart? Hmmmm, well, if one of us fell in love with someone else obviously. Also some kind of serious unethical/criminal behaviour.  

Your perfect wedding with your SO? At first we were thinking of getting married in Montreal, but then decided to do it at FI’s parent’s acreage a couple hours away from where we live. It’s where he grew up, and has become a really special place to me as well. It’s a beautiful spot out in the country, and large enough space to have a pretty big wedding and party, basically for free.

  • Wedding: February 2016

How did you meet your SO? I met him while we were in school in Brazil for a semester abroad. We had the same linguistics class and the sparks flew! 

How long have you been together? 6 years

Who said I love you first? I honestly don’t remember but looking back we feel that it was love at first sight.   

Do you live together? No, but we hope to move in together in the next 4 months

When’s the last time you saw your SO? Last Saturday- we live an hour apart and both work tow jobs so during weeknights we don’t get to see each other. Of course that will change once we move in together!

When do you think you’ll be married? We’re sort of “engaged to be engaged”. Essentially saving up for the ring, depending on how that goes I’m hoping within a year or so. 

How long do you see being with your SO? Til death to us part 

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? No, I wouldn’t although it’d be incredibly hard and painful to leave him.  

What’s your favorite memory of your SO?  There are so many and I have the worst memory when asked on the fly! Well…last weekend we cooked a nice dinner together and a song we like came on the radio and we started dancing. So corny but so fun!

How long have you been ready for getting engaged? 6 months. We started talking about it in January but honestly I didn’t really feel ready until the end of July. 

What would drive you apart? Family issues. He has a very difficult family situation and it’s been a strain on our relationship for years. We are in the process of making big changes so I’m hopeful things will get better in that area.

Your perfect wedding with your SO? Either a Parisian themed ballroom wedding at one of our area’s stunning waterfront hotels or an elopement in Paris. Totally contradictory, I know! Depends on how I’m feeling that day, researching wedding costs has been super intimidating and makes elopement look super attractive!

Fun survey, thanks for posting!

How did you meet your SO? At a friend get together. He talked to me for a solid two hours!

How long have you been together? 8 months

Who said I love you first? He did…. after he kissed me for the first time 🙂

Do you live together? Nope! We’re neighbors though, which is convinient

When’s the last time you saw your SO? This morning, I came over for a cup of coffee before work. 

When do you think you’ll be married? Hopefully this summer! (2015)

<br />How long do you see being with your SO? Ditto: till death do us part

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? No, it would incredibly hard but marriage is very important to me. <br /><br />What’s your favorite memory of your SO? The first time we kissed. It was my first kiss ever and I was so nervous! 🙂

How long have you been ready for getting engaged?  Probably for the last 5 months. We’ve been talking about marriage crazy early- after dating maybe 2 or 3 months. <br /><br />What would drive you apart? I think a lack of respect from either me or him. Our “motto” is Love, Honor, and Respect and we try and keep those three things at the center of our relationship.

Your perfect wedding with your SO? A rustic wedding with all of our close friends and family. Mostly though, if he’s there I’m happy!

SharpBee:  

How did you meet your SO? We met at a bar, but it wasn’t totally random. I was there with my roommates and he knew one of them so he came and sat with us. 

How long have you been together? 6 years

Who said I love you first? You know, I honestly don’t remember!

Do you live together? Yes, we moved in together after about two weeks of dating!

When’s the last time you saw your SO? This morning when he left for work (I work from home). 

When do you think you’ll be married? We’re getting married this coming July. 

How long do you see being with your SO? Forever

Would you stay with your SO if they wouldn’t marry you? I guess it would depend on his reason, but he started talking about marriage wayyyy before I did. 

What’s your favorite memory of your SO? The first time we met, our eyes locked and it was totally a love at first sight moment- which for the record I never believed in before. 

How long have you been ready for getting engaged?  I was probably ready for about 6 months before he proposed- but I didn’t let him know I was ready until about three months into that, he proposed soon after. He was ready for marriage years ago but told me he would wait for me 🙂 Once I was ready he proposed right away. 

What would drive you apart? I don’t know, we’ve been through a lot. It’s hard to imagine anything at this point. 

Your perfect wedding with your SO? We really wanted to elope, but with family expectations it just wasn’t possible. Instead we’re having a very small backyard wedding, but I don’t need my dream wedding because I already got my dream man. 

ETA: Sorry! I didn’t realize this was in “Waiting” either! My bad!
