- Wedding: April 2011
I’ve been stalking Wedding Bee for a while, and finally decided to post something as I’m identifying more and more with gals on this particular board!
My story: I’ve been with my boyfriend for just over 2 years and we’ve been living together for one year. We met on Match.com about seventh months after I moved to a completely new state and didn’t have ANY friends! He’s just about the most incredible person I’ve ever been around and has made me a much better person.
We knew almost instantaneously that this was it for us. But, we wanted to wait an appropriate amount of time before getting engaged, so we were thinking around March-May 2009. Well, in November 2008, he got laid off (you know, with the rest of the country). He found another job in June 2009, but naturally, it put all wedding plans on hold. Now that he’s making decent money again and has caught up on the credit card debt he got into when he was unemployed, repaid money from his parents, etc., we’re back on track!
We’ve looked at rings (seriously looked), I picked one out and now I just have to wait. And wait. And wait. And I’ve been waiting for more than a year now! (Well … kinda’) Anyway, I’m pretty sure (about 98 percent positive, my Boyfriend or Best Friend isn’t one to play games or hold back info from me) it’s going to happen within the next couple months, and I think I just might die!
It doesn’t really help that I’m kind of in love with weddings … more so than most. See, in college, I did an editorial internship at The Knot. When you work there, you can’t help but plan your wedding a little … and that was nearly four years ago! So I’ve had ideas for a while.
Woah, long introduction! Anyway, Looking forward to talking more with everyone!
