User Name: misschic94

Location: New Mexico/Texas

Age: 18

Occupation: Nursing student

SO’s age: 25

SO’s Occupation: Mechanic

How you met: Facebook, it’s funny actually. I was talking to a guy that lived near my SO and my SO had tagged a photo on this guy’s profile. I commented on the photo, and I guess SO liked what he saw, so he added me. I could tell from the beginning he really liked me and cared for me. We began to start texting and he made the suggestion that we should hang out sometime. So, I drove almost 2 hours to see him and hang out.. and we got along really well.. and since then, things have been pretty much perfect. We pretty much fell for each within a month, (crazy? I know) but our feelings are extremely strong for each other. He said he’s never even though about marriage with anyone until he met me. He is constantly telling me, “you’re the one.”

Relationship length: Since December 30, 2012. (1 month and 3 weeks)

A few words to describe yourself: Mature, Nerdy, Intelligent, and a bit awkward.

User Name: KaseiShoujo

Location: San Antonio, TX

Age: 27

Occupation: Data Entry

SO’s age: 27

SO’s Occupation: specialty food store employee

How you met: Officially shook hands nearly 7 years ago, though we had crossed paths unwittingly years prior

Relationship length: 1 year, 8 months

A few words to describe yourself: Nerdy and outgoing, globetrotter

A few words to describe your SO: Nerdy and fun, creative and talented

Interests: animation, gaming, traveling, driving

Kids?/Pets?: One cat

Guilty pleasures: Too deep a love for chocolate, karaoke, spend too much time in one sitting playing video games

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): You don’t want a man who has to be forced to love you, anyway.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): We’d known each other for five years before we got together.  We’d been with other people before than, and when we were both unattached, it seemed like, well, what are we doing NOT being with each other?  Been talking this whole time about our upcoming lives together.  He unfortunately spilled the beans that he’d been sitting on a ring that he’s already purchased for a while, during a really stupid argument (that fairly quickly got patched up).  I sort of wish I didn’t know that it was coming.  But at the very least he has now assured me that it’s still under his control when he gives me the ring, so there’s still surprise to be had.  Now I’m just antsy because we’ve talked so seriously and so in-depth for so long, and now I know that a ring exists, and I hardly know what I’m supposed to be doing with myself. …Well, aside from waiting, of course.

Bee Keeper
  • Wedding: October 2015

User Name: Lia(which is also my name-name πŸ™‚ )

Location: Southern California

Age: 34

Occupation: Currently mostly unemployed… teaching knitting and sewing in the meantime

SO’s age: 42

SO’s Occupation: SEO/Marketing and BioTech writing & editing

How you met: OKCupid (his was the ONLY good date I had from that site but the concept is great & I know several couples who met there.)

Relationship length: 5 months (I know… I know…but look at our ages. We’re basically an old married couple already!)

A few words to describe yourself: Crafty DIY queen, caregiver by nature, mostly relaxed, sarcastic and I love to laugh.

A few words to describe your SO: MAJOR GEEK! So smart, kind, incredibly affectionate, silly sense of humor and totally appreciates me and let’s me know it.

Interests: We’re both big readers and he’s gotten me addicted to NPR. Sundays cuddling on the couch listening to Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me are my FAVORITE. Wine, movies, road trips and walks on the beach take up a lot of our time too.

Kids?/Pets?: No to both… for now. I have a gorgeous 4 month old nephew who I adore and am totally exhausted by after a 10 hour babysitting stint!

Guilty pleasures: I’ll watch 5 hours of Friends if I’m alone! And I try to keep it under wraps but I’m totally addicted to Pretty Little Liars! Chocolate is big for both of us and now that I’ve met his friend who owns a fancy chocolate shop in San Diego, my tastes run rich! 

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): I trust him with my heart… so I can trust him with the timing.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): I realized last summer that I kept dating the same guy, just in different bodies. I would think “Oh.. he has 5 out of 10 important things I’m looking for… that’s good. I’m not picky.” Except those 5 things were the easiest to see and ultimately not that important. Somehow “Is nice to me” didn’t need to be checked of, apparently. I looked at the other things on my metephorical list (like intellegence, kindness, responsibility…) and went looking for someone who matched those things, regardless of race or mutual interests. The person I ended up with isn’t who I imagined, but IS someone who I immediately felt comfortable with, someone my family loved instantly, someone who lets me know I’m loved and appreciated. I want to kick myself for wasting all that time… but ultimately we were waiting for each other so I can’t be too mad!

User Name: futuremrsslp

Location: Florida during the school year, New Jersey with my SO during the summer and other breaks

Age: 20

Occupation: Full time student, part time research assistant. Looking for a full time job for the summer. 

SO’s age: 19 (I know, he’s young, but he was kicked out of his house at 17 so he acts much older)

SO’s Occupation: Full time cook, full time student

How you met: Through a mutual friend

Relationship length: 3 years in about 2 weeks

A few words to describe yourself: Determined, nerdy, fun!

A few words to describe your SO: He is the most caring guy you will ever meet. For example, he takes care of my handicapped brother at 7am every morning so my mom can go to work even though he works until 2am almost every night. And he never complains.

Interests: My major (speech pathology), makeup, sports – my SO and I are big Patriots fans, being silly with my SO.

Kids?/Pets?: My SO has a dog but our current apartment doesn’t let us keep him there :/ He will be able to move in with us when we get married because our living situation will change.

Guilty pleasures: Netflix marathons. I’m currently working on “Bones” and just finished “Pretty Little Liars”. I’m also obsessed with Diet Coke.

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Keep calm and stay away from Pinterest.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): My SO has already asked my parents for permission and I’m pretty sure he has the ring. I know we’re young. However, our families and friends are extremely supportive and we have a solid financial plan. By our current timeline we will have lived together for about a year before we marry. We are Catholic and will be completing premartial counseling through the Church. No one “in real life” has objected to our ages thus far!
