- Wedding: December 1969
We knew each other a few weeks before dating. We dated for 3.5 years before moving in together, then a year before getting engaged, then 1.5 years before the wedding. 6 years from meeting to getting married!
Well my story is one that is most likely going to be frowned upon. We met in august I was 18 he was 23 and started dating near the end of september. (we also found out that we used to go to the same place all the time three months previous but never ended up passing one another) We lived an hour apart but spent every single weekend together for about two months before he asked me to move in with him. Ever since we were inseperable. A short time after that we decided we would like to buy a house, to have something to call our own. It is now june, we live now in our beautiful three bedroom home and he proposed yesterday (june 12). His plan was to wait another three months so that he could ask me on the day and same place of our first kiss but with the ring being under the driver seat for a few weeks apparently he didn’t want to wait any longer. Our plan is to be married in a year and a half after I finish school to become a paramedic.
So long story short…Met at 18 and 23. Knew eachother for a little over a month. Moved in after dating for two. Bought our house after eight. Engaged at 9 months. I am now 19 and finishing school as a paramedic. So when we get married we will have been together a little over two years. Yes, I know it’s crazy but when you know, you know 🙂
And please, If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say it at all.
@imalittleogger: I don’t think age matters! I think your “missed connections” story is cute! Mine has a similar theme. It’s really long, sorry (pasted from our wedding site) but if anyone one feels like reading it – enjoy!
Long distance and ironic timing seem to be the underlying themes of our relationship,but no amount of miles could keep us apart!
GROOM was born on November 1, 1983 in Santa Monica, CABRIDE was born on November 1, 1984 in St. Petersburg, Russia
In 1995, Anya’s family moved to California and for the next 8 years the Bokariuses (Bokarii?) lived practically next door to the Kazdans – 0.2 miles and 57 seconds away, to be exact. Dave and Anya even went to the same high school, had mutual friends, shopped at the same market, and probably stood in the same line forThrifty’s ice cream, but never met or even heard of each other until the timing was right…
Still unaware of each other’s existence, Dave and Anya went on a life-changing Birthright trip to Israel at the same time in the winter of 2006. Chances are, they stayed at the same hotels and attended the same mega-party in Jerusalem, but they did not meet on the trip, as they traveled with different tour organizers. The meaningful experience inspired both of them to take a Hebrew class the following summer, where they finally met. Aww, the perfect Jewish love story!
Dave and Anya signed up for the same Beginner’s Hebrew Class at Santa Monica College in the summer of 2007. As she walked into the classroom and spotted Dave, Anya immediately thought that he was the most handsome guy she had ever seen. Luckily, Dave was of a similar opinion and proceeded to sit right behind her. Having cleverly tossed his own pen, he asked Anya for one. The conversation that ensued made them both feel as if they had known each other for years. A few days later Dave asked Anya out on a date and while neither of them picked up much Hebrew afterward, they spent the whole summer together.
The blissful romance would appear to be cut short by the bittersweet news that Anya had been accepted to a post-bacc pre-med program in New York. As she kissed Dave good-bye at the airport, she felt torn between her dream career and the man she had fallen hard for over a few short months. Fortunately, the love story would continue bi-costally, as the two could not stop talking despite being on opposite sides of the country. After almost a year of expensive long-distance flights and phone calls, Dave took a big step and got a job at a prestigious Jewish non-profit in NYC and the lovebirds spent the summer of 2008 living together in Manhattan.
By the summer of 2009 Anya’s pre-med requirements were complete and she was finally able to join her love back on the West Coast. At last, the two were reunited and moved in together in the fall of 2009. For the next year and a half, Dave and Anya enjoyed life in Los Angeles while working full time and planning for grad schools and applying to medical schools.
There was no way Dave and Anya could dodge ironic timing and long distance again. A few days before Dave’s departure to Israel to lead a 10-day trip withBrithright, Anya found out that she had been accepted to her dream program at the Medical School for International health… in Israel, of course, and would be moving to the Holy Land a week after Dave’s return from his own trip to the Ertez that had initially brought them together. Being the wonderful and supportive boyfriend that he had always been, Dave continued staffing forBrithright and in the next 8 months would take 5 more trips to Israel to visit his “Lil Dr.”
It is only fitting that a love story so unique would escalate to an amazing proposal. Having secretly figured out Anya’s dream ring thanks to the help of her future maid of honor, Dave purchased the perfect ring. He then booked a luxurious suite at the Dan hotel in Eilat and whisked Anya away for what she was told would just be a getaway from current round of rocket fire in the Negev. After a fun day of strolling around the beautiful Eilat beach and a delicious seafood dinner, Dave suggested a walk on the beach. At midnight, right by the water, he got down on one knee in front of an unsuspecting Anya, and asked her to marry him. Between ecstatic squeals and blissful tears a YESYESYES! ILOVEYOUILOVEYOU!resounded and the rest of the unforgettable night was spent toasting and dancing at a beach-side bar.
@LilDrAnya: That is so cute and adorable. I kinda wish my proposal was as romantic lol. I was standing pantsless in my kitchen making myself a quick lunch of ramen noodles when he walked in with out saying a word and kissed me. Got down on one knee with a huge grin on his face and said “You wanted to marry me, so will you?” I should add he walked in early from work and covered in grease. Not so romantic and beautiful as a girl would hope for but I love him so much I wouldn’t change a thing.
Thats how I felt…it made me think of how he asked me out for are first date. It just is always unexpected 🙂
