SO’s age: 25

SO’s Occupation: It’s complicated

How you met: International relations conference, six years ago

Relationship length: Officially? 7 months

A few words to describe yourself: Nerdy in every aspect, I am reserved and accepting generally. Only those closest to me get to see my whimsical, passionate side πŸ™‚

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): You’re not lost until you’re sick of wandering round. Until then, it still counts as exploring. So explore a little.

Comments (for longer story if you wish):  I say ‘officially’ because things have sparked between us multiple times over the six years, but the timing was never right for one or the other of us so while there was spark, it never made it to ‘official relationship’. Now the timing is right, and here we are, and it’s perfect.

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): have a sane, calm conversation about timelines early enough in the relationship, and don’t move in too soon.

Comments (for longer story if you wish):  Met and instantly fell for each other, did the whole joined-at-hip thing, laid on the line what I wanted… might have to marry in the courthouse very soon for health insurance, which is hard for both of us for different reasons.  Deeply stupidly cutely grossly in love.  He’s a little gun-shy about everything (I-love-yous, cohabiting, making promises, plans, were all a little hard for him in all his relationships), and deeply concerned with family and tradition and is expected to have a large wedding.
