User Name: autumnvee

Location:  Western Australia

Age: 26

Occupation: University student/bank teller

SO’s age: 36

SO’s Occupation: Programmer

How you met: Mutual friends, though we were friends for about four years before we got together.

Relationship length: 3 years

A few words to describe yourself: Studious, calm, fun (I hope!)

A few words to describe your SO: Studious, calm, fun (I think we might have melded into one person… Surprised)

Interests: Learning, reading, travelling, entertaining, decorating/renovating

Kids?/Pets?: None of either

Guilty pleasures: Food, home & garden magazines, wedding blogs!

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): How long you wait is not a reflection of your personal worth.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): I realise how lucky I am because I’m not actually waiting by myself — SO and I are both waiting, we have discussed marriage and decided that now is not the right time. I have uni to finish, and debt from a past relationship to finish paying off, and he has… well,  nothing really, he’s actually kind of waiting for me! Wink

But I have been the one waiting in my previous LTR, and I know how painful it can be. I couldn’t stand having the control of one of the biggest decisions of my life placed in someone else’s hands. But that might just explain why I’m not with that person anymore.

SO’s Occupation: College graduate looking for a company to beging his chemical engineering career with

How you met: Masonic Family

Guilty pleasures: Honestly, wedding planning or planning anything and reading.

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Don’t rush your SO, let him/her take their time, no matter how impatient you get nor how badly you want it – they need to be ready on their own time.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): Oh, where to begin?!  Our relationship is a bit backwards to begin with.  I stayed at his parents house (with him there) a week before our first date.  We had been talking and flirting for at least a month before that.  I was staying the weekend because I needed to be in town for some events.  At the time, we lived 4 hours away from each other.  Well, the second night I was there, I had lost a bet to him and had to show him a trick I can do with my boobs (they keep bouncing after I stop moving) and so I was wearing a tank top and pj shorts.  Soon it was bed time.  I was freezing and so he wrapped his arms around me and cuddled me.  We kissed shortly after that.  He had already asked me out earlier that day.  By the time I left, we had made out a bunch of times.  Since then, we were in a LDR for about 11 months until I moved up to Tampa as well for school, going to the same school as him.  We lived together for about 4 months but things went downhill with our other roommates, a married couple and so now we live separately.  Around Christmas time, we had started to talk about possible marriage and since then, he has told me ‘within the year’ and ‘before our 3rd anniversary’ so now, I bid my time by planning our wedding or our house we plan on having come August and whatever else I can plan for, even though none of it is 100% right now.
