  • Wedding: September 2015 - Country Club

User Name: Kristina1213

Location: New York

Age: 27

Occupation: Receptionist but really should be teaching (job market is non existent here!)

SO’s age: 30

SO’s Occupation: Computer Engineer

How you met: Match.com 

Relationship length: 8 years, 2 months today actually

A few words to describe yourself: Sarcastic, loud, caring to a fault, underdog (everyone calls me the underdog cause I never give up no matter what I get handed)

A few words to describe your SO: Focused, logical, funny, thoughtful

Interests: Reading, shopping, anything on iD Discovery (what I refer to as the murder channel), HGTV

Kids?/Pets?: Baxter 4 year old (120lb pit/american bull dog), Lola & Luna (3 years old & 5 months old) cats

Guilty pleasures: YA fiction, girls nights at the comedy club, Vampire Diaries, chick flicks.

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): None, but I’d love to hear some others!

Comments (for longer story if you wish): We’ve been together for 8 years. I went through the stage where after I graduated I thought it would happen, then at every ‘event/birthday/holiday/vacation’. After our cruise in 2011 I resigned myself to just shut my own expectations off and leave it alone. Easier said than done most days. The hardest thing for me to deal with is other people, my friends and family are so well meaning but they constantly bring up the fact that we’re not engaged/married yet and we’ve “been together how long???” Which then sends me in an internal tail spin. I joined WB to help quell some of that pent of emotion into something constructive because there was only so many nights I could ask myself “What is it?” when I know in reality it is going to happen. There is no question of if, just when.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): My SO and I met 7 years ago, I “liked” him pretty soon after that. We became really close friends, but it took him a full year to get the hint that I was interested in him. He asked me to be his girlfriend and I couldn’t have been happier. We have grown so much and so close in the past 6 years of dating. We are both certain that we are going to spend the rest of our lives together. I can’t wait until he officially asks me to be his wife. Eep! He says “soon.” I will decode that as soon I can.

  • Wedding: May 2015

User Name: Olympia

Location: Greater Boston Area

Age: 30

Occupation: Applications scientist. No one ever knows what that is, though, so let’s just say I’m a physical chemist who works in industry in a capacity where I interact with customers. 

SO’s age: 34

SO’s Occupation: Computer science postdoc, hoping to be a professor soon!

How you met: OK Cupid

Relationship length: Will be 2 years at the end of January. 

A few words to describe yourself: Smart, perfectionist, finds-it-hard-to-describe-herself.

A few words to describe your SO: Kind, brilliant, driven, ambitious.

Interests: Choral singing, reading, trying to take up blogging but finding it hard! 

Kids?/Pets?: We want a pup so bad, but it’s hard when you’re in a rental. When we move we’ll probably get a Boston terrier or a pug. Definitely kids in the future. 

Guilty pleasures: I agree with @Kristina1213, definitely YA fiction! Also girly shows like The Mindy Project, ice cream, and this website! 

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): It is what it is… 

Comments (for longer story if you wish): My SO and I will almost definitely be moving in late summer of 2014 when he gets a new job, and we don’t quite see eye-to-eye on the marriage timeline. We both definitely want to get married, but I want to do it before the move while he wants to get engaged before and then married after. Also, I want to elope while he wants a more traditional wedding. 

I’ve decided to SIU for the rest of the year because our talks weren’t making me feel any better. Plus he’s going have a crazy busy couple of months applying for all these jobs!

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): It will be worth it.

Comments (for longer story if you wish):

We had hoped to get married in 2014 but a family emergency delayed our plans and forced us to go long distance. The time apart made our relationship stronger than ever and we hope to marry on our ten year anniversary in Feb 2015. 

My SO’s older sister recently got engaged and set her wedding date for 2014 but we are happy to wait. We have been actively searching for engagement rings both online and in stores so I know it’s finally going to happen. I suspect it’s going to be right after his sister’s wedding in April because he is very, very low key and won’t want to steal any of her ‘thunder’. I can’t wait!

WeddingBee Words of Wisom (brief sentence): You can’t control what happensaround you but you can control how you choose to face it.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): SO and I started dating when we were juniors in highschool. In those years we grew together, fell apart, and built back up again. After a lot of talking and growing the marriage conversation has become “real” andit’s my SO who’s been bringing it up and asking me about rings! Honestly he  is my best friend and we can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together. For a while I was resistent but have come to the realization that we can grow and accomplish our goals together instead of always saying “when this happens this way…”
