Location: Baton Rouge, LA

Age: 24

Occupation: GIS Technician

SO’s age: 25

SO’s Occupation: Auto Body Tech

How you met: SO is into cars, and I had a friend who was also. They would have these car shows in parking lots late at night. I tagged along one night. We were hanging out, I was talking to one group of friends, he was talking to another, but we were standing next to each other. All of a sudden, his wallet fell out of his pocket, so I picked it up, handed it to him, and we started talking! The night ended with me taking his phone to put my number in it, then he did the same with mine! 

Relationship length: 8 years, 3 months

A few words to describe yourself: I find myself to be pretty hilarious. I love to make people laugh. I’m a people pleaser & do my best not to start any controversy.

A few words to describe your SO: He’s also quite hilarious! We crack each other up constantly. He likes to keep a badazz personality, but he’s got the biggest heart of anyone I’ve ever met.

Interests: I love LSU and Saints football. I recently started jogging, and surprisingly, I’m growing to love it! My favorite times are going to dinner with my friends, spending time with my family, and chill movie nights at home with SO.

Kids?/Pets?: no kids…. but we have a pet on the way! We’re on a waitlist for a Savannah kitten. We should have him home sometime in June!

Guilty pleasures: Maury. Cadbury Eggs. 

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Theres no amount of time I wouldn’t wait for a man who makes my world complete.

Hello All! πŸ™‚  Here’s my introduction:

User Name: Spitfire.  Just something totally random I came up with that wasn’t already taken.

Location: Green Bay, WI at the moment

Age: 35

Occupation:  Administrative Assistant (stuck in Secretarial purgatory)

SO’s age: 36

SO’s Occupation: Sales

How you met: On match.com; he winked first

Relationship length: Just had two year anniversary of our first date

A few words to describe yourself: I am a pretty creative person, I value compassion and treating others well.  I love horror movies, 80’s stuff (music, movies, but dear god, not the fashion! bluch!), and above all, Star Wars.  I have a pinup style Princess Leia tattoo. πŸ™‚

A few words to describe your SO: A wonderful, caring, supportive, honest man.  I count myself lucky to have him everyday.  He loves most of the same things I do…but he’s a collector.  Funny, he collects things, gets onto something else and sells what he’s previously collected to collect the new thing.

Interests: Sewing, makeup, Star Wars, video games.

Kids?/Pets?: We have 2 cats and 2 chinchillas.  No hairless babies for us.

Guilty pleasures:  Chick flicks, supernatural romance novels.

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence):  Everything happens for a reason.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): My boyfriend and I were both recovering from pretty catastrophic relationships, but we were both determined to find our person.  We had a very slow go of things, but over the last 6 months, we have both admitted to the fact that we’re in it for the long haul. Unfortunately, my boyfriend has been unemployed for a few months, so we’ve put off engagement until he can get some gainful employment.  πŸ™‚

Location: Slovenia

Occupation:  lawyer (currently unemployed and studying for that nightmare of a bar exam)

SO’s age: 32

SO’s Occupation: lawyer 

How you met: at work! *gasp* we only started dating once we were no longer coworkers though

Relationship length: just under 2 years

A few words to describe yourself: very! Type A, petite, DIY-mad, lover of all things vintage, antique or just old (including music), in love with my SO, shoes and all things shiny

A few words to describe your SO: loving, helpful, funny, driven, careeristic, handsome but doesn’t know it, morally upright, loves cats and everything that can be plugged into an electric socket 

Interests: criminal law, dancing, making things (jewelry etc.), reading (Jane Austen!), everything vintage, non-mainstream music

Kids?/Pets? an almost 17-year-old dog; SO would love to have a cat but I’m allergic πŸ™

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Good things come to those who wait!

Comments (for longer story if you wish): I’ve known SO was the one since our second date but we’ve both had our hearts broken before so we didn’t want to rush things. Also, his parents are divorced and I think it makes him a bit nervous about marriage. We have had some serious marriage talks though and have a timeline. We’ll be moving in together as soon as I pass my stupid bar exam – and I have a feeling that’s when he plans on officially proposing πŸ™‚

A few words to describe yourself: family-oriented, caring, positive thinker, planner…however my stubborness (the tarus in me) and impatience often get in the way- which I continue to work on

It truly works!!

User Name: cranraspberry

Age: 28

Occupation: Marketing

SO’s age: 26

SO’s Occupation: Military

How you met: online! I’m actually considering sending OkCupid a thank you note for bringing us together, although I did stumble on his profile by pure accident/luck

Relationship length: 3.5 years or so

A few words to describe yourself: I’m pretty quiet and reserved, unless you make me mad, haha. Oh, and my age always amazes people – apparently I look much younger (feel about 18, too!)

A few words to describe your SO: the smartest and most amazing man I have ever met. He is also the world’s greatest cook AND looks absolutely stunning in his uniform

Interests: I have a little bit of an internet addiction going on, so I spend waaay too much free time online. Other than that I really enjoy food and wine, hiking and giving my dog belly rubs <3

Kids?/Pets?: yes! My adorable Corgi. No kids, and we’re not planning on any of our own.

Guilty pleasures: wine, cheese and a chick flick when I’m alone for the weekend. Also a spa manicure when I can afford it!

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): If it is right, everything will work out. If it isn’t meant to be, trust me, it is all for the better.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): I’ve had a pretty bad experience with an ex who was one of those “we’ll get married some day, but I can’t tell you when as I’m not ready now” types. I spent almost 5 years waiting and finally left, only to meet my amazing current boyfriend. It’s such a huge relief to be with a man who keeps saying things like “Do you think we should do X at our wedding?”! He has also already asked for my ring size, so I’m hoping it will happen in the next 6 months or so. πŸ™‚

SO’s Occupation: Finance Manager

How you met: Watching college football – we both went to University of Washington

Relationship length: 3.5 years

A few words to describe yourself: I love my BF, living by the beach, my dog, baking, modeling…

A few words to describe your SO: Extremely ambitious, sweet (to me anyways – have heard he’s rather ruthless at work), very confident

Interests: Kind of put those in describe myself… oops!

Kids?/Pets?: No kids / 1 dog – Macy is our 60 lbs of love!  She’s a Setter Mix that we recued about 1.5 years ago

Guilty pleasures: Champagne

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence) If the waiting is driving you crazy, start doing the planning.  That is if you think the proposal is imminent.  Start going to the gym.  Decide on wedding colors.  It all keeps you occupied and optimistic.  Also, if you’re anxious, talk to your guy and get an idea of the timeline.  Or do what I did and tell him you’d like to be engaged by June and tell him to figure it out haha.

Comments (for longer story if you wish) I don’t think I’ll be waiting too much longer.  I kind of told him that I want to be engaged by June and he better get his butt in gear.  After that he took me to a couple jewelry stores to look at settings.  In the end, it sounds like he’s going to have the ring custom made since I’m pretty picky and found something wrong with every setting I looked at.  I know for a fact that he’s picked out the center diamond.  I guess I just have to wait for the ring to be made and for him to propose!  I’m so excited and kind of dying waiting at this point since I know it’s so soon.
