Congratulations !!!! πŸ™‚ It sounds as though you are at a wonderful place in life. I wish you all the very best x

So I am a 21 year old post graduate student, soon to be a masters graduate. I love university! My family, my friends and I love spending ‘me’ time. Hence why I am currently single and not interested in dating just yet πŸ™‚ 

I love life! I love traveling, learning new things, making new friends. I love where and what I do for work. Oh and I also love reading on here, so much fun! πŸ™‚

Hello everyone!

I’ve been lurking this site for months and finally decided to join it. πŸ™‚ 

My boyfriend and I are both 22 although we’re really old fashioned and old souls. We’ve been together for nearly four years now, and as of a few weeks ago, getting things ready to start setting up our new house that we just bought. πŸ™‚ we currently live separately and will most likely do so until after the wedding.

He owns his own forestry company and I work as a Nursing Assistant in a facility for adults with disabilities. I love my job and I’m sure I’ll love getting to know you all. πŸ™‚

Hello bees! Longtime lurker here, so I figured I should introduce myself!

My soon-to-be Fiance and I are both 22. We have been together 2.5 years, graduated in May and live in his parent’s basement. (Yay for life experiences!) He is a mechanical engineer, and I am still working at my internship, looking for a full-time position.

We will get married at 24 and start house hunting in a little over a year. We are SO excited to get our own place, but it has been a huge blessing to save up and pay off college loans.

We are so excited to officially start wedding planning soon!

πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: September 2014

Hi bees! I’m 26 and Fiance is 27 we will be 27 and 28 when we get married. Fiance and I actually knew each other in high school through friends. when I was 20 I ended up working with his aunt and a couple months later she got married and invited us. And we’ve been together since then. 

I have my bachelors in liberal studies and am getting my credentials for elementary teaching. I’m in the middle of transitioning to a full time position. Fiance works for a marine service company and has the best views at work. He actually proposed on a boat at the marina that he works for!

Im Mexican and we’re very traditional so Fiance and I are most looking forward to living together enjoying each other’s company.

I love reading everyone’s stories πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: June 2016

Hi everyone! 

I’m 22, SO is 23. We’ve been together since age 18/19 and will hopefully be getting engaged in 2014. I began my Bachelor’s degree in England and we met our first week there. I ended up transferring back to the U.S. after my first year, and we were long distance until last year. After he graduated undergrad he moved here and started his Master’s in Engineering and will be graduating this December! I’ll be graduating undergrad in May (he’ll have 2 degrees by the time I get my first…bah!) He will be relocating for a his first “real” job in January, and we will be doing long distance AGAIN until August of next year. We were originally planning on getting engaged in May 2014 when we thought he was staying here, but hopefully it will be before then so I have a bit more security in relocating with him! The next year is going to be full of excitement and uncertainties!  

Can’t wait to get to know you all! πŸ™‚

  • Wedding: August 2015

Hi girls πŸ™‚ I am 23 and my Fiance is 25. We’ve been together 3 years as of this past Tuesday! We got engaged on September 28. We are long distance right now (about 2 hours apart) but see each other every weekend. We’ve been long distance a few times before (we went to the same university but did 4 month co-ops in various places, the furtherst apart being 6 hours). Next year we will start looking for jobs in each others areas and that will pretty much decide where we’re living, because I really wanted to move in with him when I finished school but since my job was far away that just didn’t happen.

We both have a Bachelor of Environmental Studies, mine in Planning and his in Geomatics. We grew up about an hour apart, him in the city where we both attended university, and me in the country. We met at Oktoberfest when our mutual friends who were dating at the time each invited us along, and we have been together pretty much since then! πŸ™‚ I am so excited to get married, I knew pretty quickly that I’d be with him forever, so I’ve been waiting for a while!

Hi bees!  This is my first post as my Fiance and I were just engaged 11/21/13!  We have been together for 4.5 years and lived together for the last 3.5.  I am 22 and he is 23.  We met in high school but didn’t start dating until the end of my senior year/end of his freshman year of college.  We just moved up to Portland together after I graduated with a BS in psychology, the same degree he finished a year earlier.

 

He has been talking about proposing for years now, but I kept putting it off til we were finished with undergrad.  Now we are engaged and I’m excited to get a jump on planning the wedding for sometime next summer!

 

I’m currently applying to PhD in Social Neuroscience programs around the country that would start Fall 2014 and he is applying to MBA in Health Management programs, so it’ll be exciting to see how that all shakes out too.  No matter what we know we’ll be in it together! πŸ™‚

Hi I’m 25 will be 26 in 12 days (yay me). My fiance turned 26 in September. We live together and have been since about 4 months into our relationship. We are getting married in Feb. 2014 and will have been together 3 years and 12 days when we say our I Do’s! We got engaged a year and a half into our relationship and would never look back. Parents get along great and took our engagement and plans for the wedding quite well. I hope to get to know a lot of you and if there’s anyone from Ontario or just Canada feel free to PM me and we can chat!

Hi. Well, I am 24, Ill be 25 in a few weeks.
About me: I have been engaged a couple of times (two times in high school because I was moving and I was a rebellious teen) but of course when I moved away those “engagements” fell through lol. Raised in a small town in TN, 5 years ago I got a hostess job at a restaurant, where I met my best friend since. He stood by me through a LOT of jobs. I was raised in a southern Christian home so I know my manners and how to act but being half irish-half mexican/raised by my survivalist dad/oldest with 2 brothers/my aunt (I call her my mom)…who is an abrasive feminist I may have a slight attitude problem and people have told me I come across either as angry and hostile or silly, (when you get to know me I’m very energetic and friendly, I’ve been told my personality is that of a labrador retriever).
My best friend developed a crush on me but I told him no…and put him firmly in the friend zone…for 4 years.
For two years of that time I dated guys and he was always there to mend my broken heart or to listen as I screamed in the woods at night while we sat on his car hood until 5 am. I listened to him complain about the girls he liked and worked as his wing man. We matured together and helped each other work through our anger at the world.
For the other two years, we were both in bad relationships, he said later he had given up and moved on but always stuck by me. But still always “jokingly” brought up how I should be with him. When the guy and I broke up…it ended very violently. And my best friend took action, in a way that only big-city-rockers-stuck-in-a-small-town can. (He was not alone…I have a lot of male friends and 2 brothers). But I couldn’t be in that town anymore, I had been through so much those 2 yrs; car fire, almost lost another best friend who became horribly ill, another friend living with me after a broken engagement, mom getting cancer, an accident that required 2 reconstructive surgeries on my face, a slight drug addiction, a law suit that ended with a furry four legged companion in my name (the only good thing in that whole two years besides my best friend being there) then a break up that shattered me to my core. I fled to Texas with my birth mother and even 2,000 miles away he was always there and I was there for him. I half heartedly had attempted dates but they all fell to the wayside for my best pal, who always came first. For my birthday last year he flew to visit me and our friendship changed to a relationship beyond what I have ever had.
  And all our friends finally confessed to me that they had been waiting for me to “jump on the band wagon” for years. That they have always said secretly we were always dating and just didn’t know it. For the past year we have dated faithfully, long distance with visits every so often. I am moving back in the spring and we are moving in together. We have talked about engagements.  My boyfriend and I have grown together and matured A LOT. Its amazing how much can happen to a person emotionally and mentally in 5 years. He’s my best friend and the only person who can calm me down when I am going on a rampage about government conspiracies, and I’m the only person who can make him to lighten up and laugh at life, not drag it around like a giant rock. After being best friends for 4 years and dating for 1, we still can’t stay angry at each other for more than an hour and even when I don’t want him to he will make me laugh when I am trying to be mad. Because of him I am a better, more mature, patient person who is easier to get along with and more forgiving. And because of me he is calmer, less judgemental, less critical of himself, and is a more positive person…. and he goes to church again! We aren’t perfect but God put us together for a reason. Even if we’re only 24.

I’m one of the younger ones! I’m 20, SO is 22 almost 23. We’ve only been together for a year and a half but we are both generally more mature and it’s been pretty clear for a while now that this is it for us. I will graduate next winter, and he will be graduating over the summer. We are hoping to move in together in a year and a half, and hopefully we will also be moving for my grad school! His biggest goal is to provide for us, so I know we will not be engaged until he is stable in his career. So I’m guessing another 2-3 years.

Hi! I’m Bria. I’m 26, Fiance is 35 and we’ve been together 5.5 years. We met at work while I was in college (U of M–Go Blue!), started dating 4 months later, and then 6 weeks after that, he moved to Chicago! So we did long-distance for 8 months, realized we were obssessed with each other, and he moved back to MI. πŸ™‚ We have 2 cats (a 7-year-old and 3-month-old) and a guinea pig. We moved from Ann Arbor, MI to NW Ohio in August 2012, it’s been an adjustment, but we’ve both found great jobs and were finally able to take the next step in our relationship. We got engaged on November 10th at the botanical gardens here in town. I am over the moon!

We are SO excited for our future together. We are buying a house when the lease on our townhouse is up in August, and getting married in the fall of this year! We also want to start trying for a baby pretty soon after the wedding, as Fiance has 9 years on me and is not getting any younger lol. πŸ˜‰ He is going to be an amazing dad.

I love the Wedding Bee, and it is so nice to meet you all!
