User Name: AllyCRN (Ally is my nickname, C is my future last initial, and RN is what I want to be!)

 

Location: California, Greater SF bay area

 

Age: 22

 

Occupation: trying to get into nursing school

 

SO’s age: 22

 

SO’s Occupation: that is an excellent question (he’s doing fine, but we’re only 22)

 

How you met: he was friends with my roommates junior year of college and was always there. I’m unsure, but he swears I was wearing a sports bra and no shirt when he met me. Which, let’s be honest, probably happened.  But he probably forgot the bedhead and cup of coffee permanetly attatched to my hand.

 

Relationship length: 1 and a half years

 

A few words to describe yourself: LOUD. 

 

A few words to describe your SO: My Grandma named him Sandy Sleighfoot, after a song from when she was a little girl.  He wears a size 16 shoe.  He’s very funny, and hopes to do amature stand-up.  He’s very calming and positive, a good balance to my neuroticism. He’s always loved comic books, especially Superman. 

 

Interests: Well-written fiction.  TV, movies, books.  We initially became friends over our frustration of crappy TV and appreciation off well excecuted fiction.  Since we began dating we’ve watched all of Lost, Doctor Who (up to present), Suits (same), and a ton of movies.  He got me addicted to books by Orson Scott Card. And I got him (and his dad) to read A Song of Ice and Fire.  We just started Angel, he’s watching Supernatural and we also want to do Sherlock.

 

Kids?/Pets?: None of our own right now, but we want both in the future. I get a dog as a gift from my mom when I graduate nursing school (a little family tradition) and he came up with the name IV.  Like “Ivy.”  Get it?? LOL i love him.

 

Guilty pleasures: Wedding planning!!! He actually knows and thinks it’s really sweet.  I pointed out that most guys would run for the hills, but he said “You’re planning OUR wedding. Because you want to marry me.  Why should that scare me?” I kept that text πŸ™‚

 

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Um….be patient and try not to kill your mom.

 

Comments (for longer story if you wish): My mom is extremely passive aggressive and I always feel like she is less than supportive of our relationship and plans.  It is a point of tension in my relationship with her, hers with him, and his with mine.  Very frustrating.

User Name: tatertot2003

Location in the middle of a vineyard, Western  New York

Age: 30

Occupation: Middle School Special Education Teacher (5th and 6th grade)

SO’s age: 33

SO’s Occupation: Engineer by day, Grape Farmer by night

How you met: match.com (who can resist a cute guy in a john deere had with his dog! ahhh <3) 

Relationship length:  7 months… when you know- you know…I may be waiting awhile…but it doesn’t mean that I don’t “know” and we have had…”the talks” but we both thing a domestic partnership will come first (for insurance/financial purposes)

A few words to describe yourself: funny, loyal, tomboy, “country” 

A few words to describe your SOfunny (I love fart jokes-so I think he is funny), focused, hard worker, dedicated, honest, loyal, outdoorsy

Interests: working the farm (grapes)-already my pride and joy after 7 months! and it is his life, horses (he has always wanted them and I have been a horse addict for 20+ years), drinking beer, line dancing, working on cars (he works, I hand him tools-then my car is fixed!), wood working (again, he works, I hand tools -then get new furniture!)

Kids?/Pets?: I have two cats who are living with my parents. He has 2 dogs (AMAZING Goldens) and I have a gorgeously perfect horse who is my love of my life (other than my So of course)

Guilty pleasures: dance moms (he wont let me watch it when he is around!), busch light (we love it), karaoke

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence)  don’t judge other people. No one truly knows where anyone else has been or where anyone else is going

Comments (for longer story if you wish):  
My SO and I have had a rough road so far- he has been in the process of getting a divorce. All I can say is that when I met him I truly felt like I met the person who I was meant to be with for the rest of my life. Whether we are working 10 hour days out in the field with his mom and dad, or cuddling on the couch laughing at the dogs or laying in bed at night, there is no place that I would rather be than with him!

I joined the waiting list because I believe I have less than 1 year to wait…maybe I will get to #1…who knows but it is fun to see other people’s journeys towards engagement!

Comments (for longer story if you wish): I have literally been “planning” my wedding since about half a year into my relationship with my SO. Thinking back, I was certain that I would be engaged by now, since my SO and I talk about our future constantly, including engagement specifics, ring preferences, etc. Also, we both already have jobs locked down and will be moving across the country together after we graduate. However, I am keeping an open mind and who knows, something VERY exciting may happen around or before we graduate in May!
