I was 18 when we met, 20 when we started dating and when we get married I’ll be 26. Fiance is 4.5 years older than me.

I was 27 when we met; but FH was 48.  He always wanted to get married; but never wanted to settle. 

All the time he says he’s happy he dated & waited and never settled, and doesn’t have bagggage to bring to our life together.  

 

Seriously, if it doesn’t feel right; don’t tie yourself to someone you’ll regret for fear you won’t meet anyone else.

I was 27, FH was 28, now we are 30 and 31 respectively!  However I knew my Future Sister-In-Law (FH’s little sister) when she was about 7 or 8 – I was her summer camp counselor!

I was 18 and he was 21. We met at college, I was a freshman and he was a junior. His group of friends would spend the first couple of days hooking up the school’s internet in the freshmen dorms (the school’s techs couldn’t get to everyone until several weeks into the semester!) and that’s how they would pick up girls. 

We stayed in the same circle of friends through school, and after I graduated we remained very close friends. We held jobs, dated people, lived several states away, and stayed in touch with each other almost daily over email and IM. We’d visit each other every month or two, and by the time I was in my mid 20s we would travel to various cities and meet for weekends. We even went to DisneyWorld together as friends. When he was 30 and I was 27, we came to the conclusion that maybe we should date each other rather than date other people and whine at each other when the relationships failed. (This had been obvious to everyone else, including strangers who assumed we were married. At Disney World people said we were smiling more than most newlyweds.)

We moved to the same city, and then moved in together, and then moved to Boston. And in December he proposed. We’re now 30 and 33

We’re just slow to catch on.

I was 12 when I met my Fiance. But don’t lose hope, 30 is still young 🙂
