User Name: Olympia
Location: Greater Boston Area
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!
