I met my hunky boyfriend seven years ago when I was fourteen and he was sixteen. We became best friends and still are all these years later (with a big load of love thrown in for good measure!)
We’re young, but we’ve been through a lot. I got my GCSE’s, my college A Levels and he moved with me to university where I’m just about to finish my history degree. He has had big career changes from sales to his current role working with adults with learning difficulties. We have helped eachother through the 3Ds that so often kill relationships – deaths, debts and depression, and he has spent the past few years especially tackling his Tourette’s syndrome. We have travelled around the world twice (paid for our ourselves) and have moved into our first flat… In all it has been a fantastic seven years and I’m so excited to take the next step!
Although we’ve known since the start that we would get married one day, it wasn’t an option while we were teenagers. Now I’m about to turn twenty-two we have decided that the time is right! We make all decisitoe together so I was never expecting it to be a complete surprise, and in line with that we’ve chosen the ring together too. But the proposal is down to him!
Im sorry thit might be a bit of a pointless post but I’m so happy and excited… I just wanted to share!

Thank you everyone 🙂 I’m sure I’ll be on these boards for a good while! Im a big planner and I LOVE a good forum haha! When we were planning the trips I was on travel forums like travelfish every day!
@lookingglass we travelled for three months in 2010 through Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand then drove down the east cost of Australia in a hippie camper! Then in 2011 we went back around Thailand again for six weeks – we love it there so much! We’ve also been to Spain (can picafort in Majorca) and Cyprus as well as little trips to Ireland, Scotland and the good old English countryside. We’ve definitely got the travel bug so we’re excited about potential honeymoon destinations!
