  • Wedding: February 2012

I met my fi at work in 2008. He was my captain and I was his flight attendant. We hit it off as friends and didn’t date until last summer, when he told me that he was sick of seeing me with loser men who treated me like crap. (Of course, we talked every day and texted all the time……. he was like my emotional boyfriend without me really realizing it). I met his parents after dating for about 2 weeks, he met mine after a month, we moved in together 2 months later and we got engaged 4 months after we made it official. I thought my parents would freak out about everything happening so quickly, and our age difference (12 years), but they love him and are really glad we are together. He’s amazing and I’d never want to be with anyone else. I’m also super glad that we were good friends before and had a history – it really helped.

I got engaged when I was 26. We were together for a year and 3 months before he proposed. It would have been longer but we both refused to do the long distance relationship thing. I’ve known him since the 12th grade though.

  • Wedding: March 2012

Met when we were 14 or 15…. we were eachother’s “One that got away”… lost touch in college.

Reconnected right after I turned 34… engaged a year and a half later…. will be 36 when I get married Feb 2012.. he will be just short of 36 (and always reminds me how he’s with an “older woman” lol!)

 

I never thought I would be this old when I finally got married but he was worth the wait:)

I was 28, and he was 29. We’ll be 29 and 30 on our wedding day. We had been dating for 3.5 years when we got engaged, and we were friends for 8 years before that. So 11 years after we met and became friends, we got engaged!

Been together for just over 6 months, he’s told me the engagement will be before the end of summer.

I don’t know how to explain this in a way that makes sense but since day one we have both known. The day we started dating we slow danced together to Glenn Millers “Moonlight Serenade”. He recently told me that after that dance that night he wanted to ask me to marry him but he had no ring. I now wear a promise ring that he gave me 4 months into the relationship on my birthday when we were walking to the car after we went to dinner at a small french bistro and to the symphony (tickets he got me for my birthday). For the promsie ring he did not get down on one knee but he told me that this was his commitment starting now until forever. The ring is a plain white gold band with a south sea pearl. Very simply he said “It kind of looks like the north star, that’s what you are to me. My guiding light”.

For almost 2 weeks in August we are going to Paris with his family.

I cannot wait until the day that we are married, or at least engaged so that we can share our love with our families.

We met at 18 & 20. If engaged this summer we will be 19 & 21. We could not be more in love.
