I stumbled upon this site a couple weeks ago and have been stuck like glue to it every since! I’m a 31 yo old law student. I know, I realized that I wanted to go back to school a bit late, but it’s the entire reason I met my SO.
Am a Chicagoland-er and returned in early 2009 after losing my job and decided to head back to school. I knew that I wanted to settle down in Chicago and meet a good ol’ Midwestern boy rather than the work-addicted BB-toting NYCrs (although there are wonderful guys there too! I just didn’t click with any of them) that I dated in my previous life.
Anyway, registered for eHarmony on a whim, and 3 days before the end of the trial period, my current SO emailed me. We “clicked” on the first day, went on our 2nd day 2 days from the 1st, and our 3rd date was the very next day.
We just celebrated our 1 year together and he asked my Dad permission to start seriously “courting” me (both our families are conservative Asian families, and neither of us had every introduced any SO’s before to them!) and now we’re working through things like: 1)differing religions 2)where to live 3)my still ahead 2.5 years of school 4)planning a future wedding.
I’ve gather a lot of hope and wisdom from ‘bee, and I know that we love each other to get through the interfaith issues that are looming up, but it’s wonderful to have a wonderful forum!!
Nice to meet y’all!!
