User Name: Imean

Location: The Lone Star State!

Age: 23

Occupation: Master’s counseling student

SO’s age: 30

SO’s Occupation: IT Analyst

How you met: Very randomly at a bar. He gave my friend his stool cause he’s a gentleman like that, and him and I got to talking. When I left the bar I made a comment that I should have talked to him more cause he was nice and cute. Next thing I know my friends are running inside to ask him to give me his number. Again, being a gentleman he came outside and asked me for mine, said he’d call me the next day and he did!

Relationship length: 1 year 3 monts. There was no beating around the bush with us, we admitted to each other we didn’t want to play any games after our 2nd date.

A few words to describe yourself: Funny, outspoken, relaxed, homebody, friendly.

A few words to describe your SO: Experienced (i really like that he’s been through much more in life than me given our age difference), calm and patient, outgoing, popular, active, friendly.

Interests: Eating & drinking. Friends & family. Entertaining, movies, travel.

Kids?/Pets?: no/no

Guilty pleasures: Food! Can we tell we’re foodies? Laying around the house on the weekends, beer, hookah… and for me wedding planning!

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Express your wants and needs from the relationship clearly, talk about where you are and where they want to proceed in the relationship without fear.

Count me in too!

User Name: Rhodora (one of my favorite wild plants)

Location: Vermont, USA

Age: 25

Occupation: Plant ecologist, soon to be Master’s student in Environmental Ed. and field ecology

SO’s age: 40

SO’s Occupation: Writer, editor, carpenter

How you met: At a contra-dance (it’s a type of social dancing). Contra-dances are held every 2 weeks in a town that’s pretty much exactly halfway between where we each lived at the time, and it was just after Valentine’s day, and we were disgusted with STILL being single. So we both went to the dance, and immediately noticed each other. It was clear we liked each other, but he didn’t ask me out or ask for my number at the end of the evening, so I thought he wasn’t interested after all, and totally forgot about him!! The 2 weeks later, at the next dance, we saw each other again, and he finally asked me out then– kind of a surprise for me. I still feel guilty that I forgot about him for 2 weeks (I’d really liked him the first evening, but I figured that since he didn’t seem interested I might as well not think about it. . .).

Relationship length: Just over 3 years

A few words to describe yourself: Odd, creative, a bit of a pessimist, impatient, very curious about and interested in a lot of things, intelligent, silly.

A few words to describe your SO: Also odd, funny, very intelligent, sexy, strong, very grounded and reasonable.

Interests: Plants, outdoor recreation, gardening, making historically accurate clothing, dancing, teaching people, learning, love, and getting engaged sometime soon. . . ;P

Kids?/Pets?: No kids, 2 insane cats that were my SO’s before I came around. . .

Guilty pleasures: Sleeping in, staying up too late, and chocolate πŸ™‚

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Don’t let waiting make you mistrust your SO. You love each other and want to be together; waiting is worth it but since many of us already HAVE our SO to be with/live with, it’s important to remember that we HAVE what we want– a wonderful partner who wants to be with us long-term!
