SO’s age: 32

SO’s Occupation: Manager

How you met: Through mutual friends

Relationship length: 3.5 years

A few words to describe yourself: serious, classic, board gamer and D&D player, loyal

Guilty pleasures: ice cream

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Be patient

Comments (for longer story if you wish):

When we first met we hated each other. We met through a couple mutual friends when we went to a club. One of the girls had previously dated him and they were still sleeping together. I did not know that and she told me some things to make me think that he just was looking for some ass, for lack of better words. She, in the meantime, convinced him that I was racist against people with brown skin (he is half native Hawaiian). He believed her. That is until he saw me with a Pacific Islander I was briefly dating and saw that no, I was not racist. We happened to be at the same party a month or two later (this is about five months after we had first met) and another friend needed to go to the ER. So we took her. While waiting for her in the waiting room we started to talk and found we had a lot in common. After that we continued talking but about a week later I had landed a contract to teach out in Saskatchewan. I moved to Saskatchewan not long after and I we talked every evening (which kept me sane – I was really unhappy during that time). At Christmas break I came back to Ontario for about 2 weeks. We spent almost every day together and decided that we would like to try to have a relationship. He came up once during that time to see me for a few days. I moved back at the end of the school year, which is when we moved in together. It has now been 3.5 years and the rest is history. Now we are getting ready to move on to the next step which is marriage (after getting engaged). I look forward to it.

I am another guilty waiting bee; guilty of stalking (coming and going every month or so). So I figure I should jump on the bandwagon since all the cool kids are. πŸ™‚

User Name: Red-Velvet

Location: Illinois

Age: 23

Occupation: Pharmacy Research Assistant / IV Room Tech

SO’s age: 24

SO’s Occupation: Medical Communications

How you met: SUPER LONG STORY, grab some popcorn. πŸ™‚ I met SO’s friend in 2005 (on MYSPACE no less, HAH!), we tried, it never worked out, but we stayed really close friends. He would always drag me out with his guy friends whenever I had a messy break up. In 2010, I met up with them and SO happened to be along that night. I recognized him, but no more than knowing his name. We’d met previously, but he always had a girlfriend. Apparently I had my super-sassy pants on that night because when SO came up and tried to shake my hand/introduce himself, I looked him up and down, gave a snooty look and said “Yeah, I’ve met you before.” & turned my back to him. STILL TO THIS DAY, I have no idea what came over me. That was so completely out of character. So, that night was super fun, and SO was super cute and super funny. I told my friend how I thought he was a nice guy, but I really thought he was out of my league and nothing would come of it. About a week later, I’m leaving work late, stopped at a red light, and who pulls up next to me; SO with my friend in the passenger seat. They force me to hang out with them for the night, and after that SO and I had our first “real” date. It was awful timing– super crazy amounts of pressure meeting someone new around Valentine’s Day. Ugh, never do it. Long story short– I truely believe that if I had not been late at work, I would not have stopped at that red light. They would not have stopped next to me, and I would have been moved on to someone else. Huge huge example of fate/there’s a plan for everyone. πŸ™‚ 

Relationship length: 3.5 years

A few words to describe yourself: Baker, competitive, funny, nerdy, bookworm

A few words to describe your SO: Funny, handsome, caring, giving, protecter

Interests: Photography, reading, baking, beauty/makeup/manicures

Kids?/Pets?: No human babies, but we have 2 fur babies. Cece and Eddie. 

Guilty pleasures: Bad Reality TV; Teen Mom, 16 & Pregnant, Jersey Shore, Mob Wives

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): My favorite piece of advice? FAKE IT TIL YOU MAKE IT. 

Comments (for longer story if you wish): I’m a very good advice giver, but I never listen to my own. I try to keep busy with work and friends, but as the days go by, it’s proving harder and harder. Count your blessings; Try to focus on what you have and not on what you’re missing. SO and I are part of a close-knit group of 4 couples. We have been together the longest- by a long shot, and now, we are the only non-engaged, non-expecting couple. I try so so hard not to be jealous, but I am really terrible at it. I’m tired of watching everyone get what I have dreamed of for literally my entire life. So, I’m hoping to find the support of others in the same boat as me.

Hi everyone! I am a long time lurker. I started reading Weddingbee a few years ago when my cousin became a Bee and began blogging about her wedding. Anyway, here goes.

User Name: HoyaTerpDC

Location: Washington, DC area

Age: 29

Occupation: librarian

SO’s age: 32

SO’s Occupation: boring government stuff

How you met: an Okcupid success story!

 Relationship length: since Nov 2012 

 A few words to describe yourself:   artsy, positive, candid, daydreamer 

 A few words to describe your SO: nerdy, generous, thoughtful, talented, not one word but he’s a great cook and homebrewer!

 Interests: museums/photography, horseback riding, working out (trying to become a runner), trying new foods/restaurants 

Kids?/Pets?: none, but I steal my parent’s Jack Russell mix puppy whenever I can

Guilty pleasures: Real Housewives of New Jersey, all shows on Bravo

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Live a life outside of your partner and do things that make you happy; it would be boring to be together ALL of the time!

Comments (for longer story if you wish): We started talking about spending the rest of our lives together around month 4, so things are moving fast but in a good way? A few days ago he mentioned that he was going to start saving for a ring, so I think that officially makes me a girl in “waiting.” πŸ™‚
