Hi everyone, I’m also new! Though I had an account before, I was mostly lurking. Anyway, I recently started waiting for real, so I wanted to make a new account for… the whole wedding process, I guess! So exciting πŸ˜€

Anyway, enough with the preamble.

User Name: Nails_Polished

Location: Southern Ontario (not Toronto), Canada

Age: 23

Occupation: Just finished my Bachelor’s, am currently “in limbo” as I’m taking a year off before doing more school. If you want to know my field, it’s genetics.

More interestingly, I also write e-books and sell them via Amazon and other sites. I write, uh… “steamy” romances, if you get my drift.

SO’s age: 24

SO’s Occupation: He’s taking a year off between degrees like me! Unlike me, though, he’s not going to grad school, he’s going back to undergrad for computer science. His current degree is in evolutionary biology.

How you met: Well, we both just graduated school in biology… so take a guess πŸ˜‰

Relationship length: Almost 2 years

A few words to describe yourself: Quiet… except on the internet, where I talk way too much. Is that too many words? Case in point.

A few words to describe your SO: Outgoing, loud, and very, very strange. (In a good way.)

Interests: Shared: science, especially biology, reading, and a video game called Salem. 

My own: Writing, and writing, and writing. It’s probably why I’m overly verbose online.

Kids?/Pets?: None for now, want both someday.

Guilty pleasures: Nail polish… I own way too much…

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Try not to get eaten by the monster, and remember to enjoy the relationship you have now!

Comments (for longer story if you wish): I think I’ve said more than enough.
