- Wedding: August 2012
Hello! I am new on this message board (although I have lurked for the past few weeks). All the posts are informative and helpful, and just by searching I can usually find the answers to things I’m looking for. Yall are great and I am still getting used to it!
My SO and I have been good friends for years, and started dating over a year ago. He is a true gentleman (opens doors for me, pumps gas, carries me across puddles, and he is as family-oriented as I am). He has every quality I have always been looking for, but it took me awhile to open my eyes!
We know eachother very well, and have went through ups and downs, but recently got very serious. It also helps that my parents adore him (and they have always wanted us together anyways). He has been there through everything, and until him I did not realize it was possible to be this happy, nor did I believe in the term “soul mate”. But that he is. My best friend, my other half.
Things got serious over the holidays! We have talked marriage, but a family emergency took me from South Texas across the country to the cold temperatures of the Pacific Northwest since mid Nov. He surprised me with a trip right before Christimas (that my parents were in on) and spent a little over a week with us. During that time, he asked my parents for their blessing to get married! I also found out that he went and got a ring!
I will not be back in texas until mid-january, so now it is a matter of waiting and I am in a frenzy (in a good way).
Well just wanted to give yall my story 🙂
