Location: Ohio, USA

Age: 18

Occupation: University student

SO’s age: 17 (don’t judge until you get to the “how we met” part)

SO’s Occupation: high school student

How you met: DBF and I met in a high school creative writing class in late August. He was a 15 year old sophomore, and I was a 17 year old senior. However, we didn’t really pay much attention to each other until I added him on my Facebook account (I am/was a chronic friender of acquaintances) in October. Even then, our contact was limited until early February of this year. We began to regularly chat in late March, and we immediately clicked. Neither of us had gotten along with anyone as well as we have! We started dating on April 24, with full knowledge that we would be going long distance after the summer.

Relationship length: 8 months as of Christmas Eve (but to put it in perspective, DBF and I weren’t even at the two-month mark when I registered here…when you know, you know).

A few words to describe yourself: eccentric, loud, intelligent

A few words to describe your SO: silly, reserved, clever

Interests: Mine: art, video games, writing, history, politics | His: reading, video games, writing, history

Kids?/Pets?: Not now, at least…

Guilty pleasures: about half of my iTunes library (I can seamlessly go from Aqua to Taylor Swift to foreign-language kiddie-pop within minutes), my seemingly useless knowledge

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Relationship status has less to do with love than you think.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): n/a

Age: 29 (30 un Feb)

Occupation: Mental Health/Addiction Therapist

SO’s age: 27

SO’s Occupation: Information Assurance

How you met: Through his sister when I lived in another state.

Relationship length: 1 year 4 months (Eventhough I don’t have a ring, we are totally open about the summer elopement and our close F&F all know we are running away and getting hitched.)

A few words to describe yourself: I am pretty dry and funny.  I can be a girlie girl and enjoy pedicures and indie-family comedies.

A few words to describe your SO: He’s a veteran, in IT and can be a goofball.

Interests: Reading (mostly psych stuff,) eating out, and sleeping.

Kids?/Pets?: No/a very affectionate Welch Corgi named Gordon.

Guilty pleasures: Spending a lot of time on here being really indecisive about the dress, heck even the state we will be eloping in.

Widsom: Since I have been married/divorces before; Remember this is for the long haul, the person you marry know will be the face you are looking at in 20, 30, 40 years.  Although you marry someone to “grow” and for “potential” don’t jip yourself for less than you/they deserve.  Marriage is an investment and a business deal as much as it is a romantic plan for the future.
