Hey Everyone! So excited to have somewhere to help pass the time!!!

User Name: msega16

Location: Jersey Shore

Age: 25

Occupation: Environmental Consultant

SO’s age: 26

SO’s Occupation: Police Officer

How you met: He was visiting a friend from high school who lived in the dorm across the hall. 

Relationship length: 7 years in May

A few words to describe yourself: I’m kind of a homebody. I like to craft, have since I was a kid, and I tend to be detail-oriented, overly organized and perpetually frazzled. 

A few words to describe your SO: When people meet him for the first time they tend to say he’s kind of intimidating, really quiet and impossible to read. Which is funny because he is so unbelievably goofy. He makes me a more fun person. (I’m glad it said a few words because otherwise I probably would have gone on forever.)

Interests: I really enjoy getting totally absorbed by a good book, beading, sewing and road trips to local tourist spots. (It’s amazing how much we take for granted where we live.)

Kids?/Pets?: Two wonderful Goldendoodles, Adison and Charlie, who are both pets and kids. πŸ™‚

Guilty pleasures: Singing when no one else is around.

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): I got nothing….yet.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): I have been with my SO for 7 years this May. In January I asked what his timeline was for getting engaged because I was starting to get impatient. He said six months…which I later whittled down to the first week in May. We already knew the ceremony and reception venues we wanted, and based on their discounts, we knew we wanted October. When we went through all the Saturdays in October in 2014 we knew 10-4 was the date, a nice little nod to his profession. As a compromise…I would stop trying to find the ring (which I picked out and he immediately hid somewhere in our house) and let him go through with his “master plan” if he let me reserve the venues to ensure we got the date we wanted and commence the planning madness. He agreed, so true to form for our relationship, we set the date before I got the ring. Now, rather than worrying about not getting the date and all that I can just be excited to see what he has planned. I’m sooo excited!!!

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Appreciate the small moments in life


Comments (for longer story if you wish): my situation is a tad complicated. However, I will try wrapping it into a short paragraph. I was in an unhealthy relationship as a teenager that I was in pretty much just for the sex. I grew up in a Christian family and always had strong beliefs but this was my small rebellious moment. I got pregnant at 18 and out of obligation, got married to the father of my child(BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER!!!). We only had a registry office marriage ceremony. The relationship was very unhealthy from the start and it lead to me being depressed and always anxious with a controlling and manipulative husband. I left the relationship(one of my best decisions ever) and moved on with my life. This had all happened by the time I was 20 years of age. Once that relationship ended, I turned my life and focused on God and found myself restored to being content with who I am and happy to be single. Only then I met my now SO and a couple of months later, we began dating. So as you see, I made some terrible decisions in my later teen years which consequently has given me some good life lessons, an awesome child but unfortunately, a waiting time to be legally divorced(2 years of separation in NZ). I’m a few months away from finally having my divorce come into effect which means shortly after that I can legally get married… Sound complicated enough? 


Sooooo happy with my SO though and how things have fallen into place and I’ve been doing pretty well with staying pure and waiting for marriage and have built a really close friendship with my SO. Now, to wait for him to pop that question! Sorry I tried to keep it short…

How you met: I had recently split up with someone else, and while I had been with the ex we had bought concert tickets to see Massive Attack (my idea). Anyway when  we split up he kept the tickets, so the night of the concert I called up a friend and we went for a girls night out. We met up in a bar and had some food, then jumped in a taxi and she suggested we go to a Scottish bar that we both knew, but she was friends with the barman. So we went and I met Mr Pigeon! We only stayed there for about 45 minutes but mentioned to him where we would be ending our pub crawl if he wanted to come for a drink after he finished his shift, and sure enough, he showed up (after renting a Velib to get there faster) and we have been inseperable ever since
