1. I met my SO on Plenty of Fish. He was the only person I spoke with directly. I was very suspicious of online dating at the time.

2. We texted eachother for about two weeks before our first date. We’ve been together ever since.

3. We have never broken up. I could never conisder a long term relationship after breaking up with that person. Ever.

4. We are engaged.

5. n/a

6. n/a

We are getting married in March of this year. We didn’t have a formal “proposal,” since it seems flashy and fake to us. We had an adult conversation and came to the conclusion that it was time to get married. It may not seem “romantic” to some people, but it’s much more romantic to me than getting down on one knee, in which case I would have been embarrassed.

1. How did you and your SO meet? And when? We met through mutual friends many years ago (sorry, can’t remember how long exactly). There was a whole group of us who got together at a friend’s house a few days before New Years to discuss what we all wanted to do to celebrate it. We clicked instantly and became best friends. I should probably add that I was actually seeing his brother for a short period before SO and I even met and his bro seems to think he has briefly introduced us but neither of us remember.

2. How long did you know each other before starting to date. We were besties for a few years up until I got offered a job overseas and he asked me to stay. You know how the cliche story goes.

3. Have you and SO ever broken up? Explain. Nope, never. We don’t fight, we barely argue. We just agree to disagree on stuff (which is rare because I swear he is the exact male version of me). If we ever were to break up, I think it would be the first realtionship I would actually mourn.

4. Are you engaged/married? Yes and no. We are engaged in the sense that we know we’re getting married and have started planning the wedding together. We’re just not “ring official” yet. He has said it will happen before my birthday (May).

5. If you aren’t engaged/married, do you have a walk date or timeline? Our timeline is get engaged before May, have the engagement party (big deal in my culture – there’s a whole ceremony and stuff) in July, the wedding in November 2016, TTC our first 6 months later in May 2017 then if all goes to plan, TTC our second when the first about a year old.

6. If you aren’t engaged/married, does SO seem on board with engagement in the very near future (1 year or less)? N/A

We met seven years ago at an old job of mine. Talked of and on for two years, we both really liked each other but things didn’t work out then, I think for the better. We have never broken up. I have been waiting about seven months (he has the ring)for an engagement. (I actually just posted on the same waiting board as you, so maybe not waiting anymore in your eyes)

Fun!

1. How did you and your SO meet? And when? In undergrad (we were dormmates).

2. How long did you know each other before starting to date? We knew of each other for a year, then we were friends for another 2 years, and then we started dating.

3. Have you and SO ever broken up? Explain. Yes. Before I went across the country for law school, he broke up with me saying he couldn’t do the long distance thing for 3 years. A week later, we were back together.

4. Are you engaged/married? Engaged after 7+ years of dating (minus a week haha) and more than a decade since we first met.

1. How did you and your SO meet? And when? I met my Fiance, almost 3 years ago while on a Contiki European tour.  I brought a friend, made new friends, and met my best friend that trip (him).  

2. How long did you know each other before starting to date. Our tour in Europe was 2 weeks long, we explored many cities together.  He lives in Florida and I live in Chicago, so he flew to Chicago about 3 weeks after our tour ended.  Since then, we see fly to each other every month or to a new city for a mini vacay.  

3. Have you and SO ever broken up? Explain. We did break up after the first 6 months for about 3 months, he said the distance got to him and he couldn’t do it anymore.  But we got back together because he had feelings for me.  I recently broke up with him in November because I needed more clarification or a timeline of where our relationship was going.  I think every LDR needs to have an end point and I couldn’t just give up my whole life to be with him if he didn’t have a set plan.  He did ask me to move in with him but i felt I needed more of a commitment.  We were broken up for 3 days, he flew here and told me his future plans and how he couldn’t live without me.

4. Are you engaged/married? We’re engaged now as of New Years Eve.  He was so excited, he wanted to announce it on facebook before my whole family even knew about it. lol

5. If you aren’t engaged/married, do you have a walk date or timeline? n/a

6. If you aren’t engaged/married, does SO seem on board with engagement in the very near future (1 year or less)?  n/a

1. How did you and your SO meet? And when?

We met on Plenty of Fish 2 years ago, we messages back and forth for a week, went on our first date and have been seeing each other ever since~

2. How long did you know each other before starting to date. 

We talked for a week before our first date, and were accidentally exclusive from then because we both can’t date multiple people at the same time. We were facebook official 2 months in though.

3. Have you and SO ever broken up? Explain. 

No we haven’t, thank goodness. That would break my heart.

4. Are you engaged/married? 

Not yet!

5. If you aren’t engaged/married, do you have a walk date or timeline? 

None in mind, but I have a “perfect” timeline for everything in my head, haha. Not that it has to follow it at all.

6. If you aren’t engaged/married, does SO seem on board with engagement in the very near future (1 year or less)?

Definitely, he keeps bringing it up and gets more excited about the thought everyday. Wish me luck in hoping that it’s sooner rather than later!

  • Wedding: April 2016 - Granberry Hills

1. How did you and your SO meet? And when? 

We originally met in high school in 2006. He asked my best friend to Homecoming so I met him then.

2. How long did you know each other before starting to date. 

Even though we met in 2006, it wasn’t until January 2009 that we started talking and became friends. We started dating in July 2009 so 6 months.

3. Have you and SO ever broken up? Explain. 

We broke up in July 2010. My Fiance was in technical school for the Air Force and things just fell apart. Looking back on it, we weren’t mature enough to be in a serious relationship with all the external factors that were occuring. We stopped talking a couple of months later and didn’t talk until he contacted me to apologize for everything in 2012. We started dating again in November 2012.

4. Are you engaged/married? 

Engaged

5. If you aren’t engaged/married, do you have a walk date or timeline? 

N/A but I believe that both individuals should be honest about what they want. I would not have used a date or timeline except for when to bring the topic of marriage up.

6. If you aren’t engaged/married, does SO seem on board with engagement in the very near future (1 year or less)? <br />

N/A. I will say that my Fiance brougt up the topic of marriage and very much surprised me when he proposed because I thought he would propose this year!

1. How did you and your SO meet? And when? We met 4 years ago on the first day of our Biology I class in college in January 2011

2. How long did you know each other before starting to date? We became “official” also in January 2011 a couple weeks after we met

3. Have you and SO ever broken up? Explain. Yes, unfortunately. 🙁 We broke up for a few weeks in August 2011. It was extremely hard on us to be apart and we realized how much we loved each other and never wanted to be without each other again so we decided to work through our issues. We got engaged 7 months later.

4. Are you engaged/married? We are happily married!

5. If you aren’t engaged/married, do you have a walk date or timeline? N/A

  • Wedding: September 2014

1. How did you and your SO meet? And when? DH and I met when we were in high school. He was a junior, I was a freshman. 2007.

2. How long did you know each other before starting to date. Uh, that’s hard to pinpoint. We were best friends for a long time, but we had feelings for each other pretty much from the time we met. We saw each other off and on for a while, and eventually found our way to each other “for real” in January 2010.

3. Have you and SO ever broken up? Explain. Yep. While we were off and on in high school, we broke up twice. Both times we broke up, it was my fault. I was a confused, emotional high school girl. But he kept trying and finally it became clear to me that we were meant to be together all along.

4. Are you engaged/married? We got married this past September =)

5. If you aren’t engaged/married, do you have a walk date or timeline? N/A.

6. If you aren’t engaged/married, does SO seem on board with engagement in the very near future (1 year or less)? N/A.

1. How did you and your SO meet? And when? We met while I was working at a coffee shop. He was a “regular” and I was the barista in the green apron. I was in college then so like 2005/2006. 

2. How long did you know each other before starting to date. We knew each other for 4 or 5 years. But it was pretty casual seeing as I only saw him within the walls of a coffee shop. I had a boyfriend during that time, plus I had to keep it professional. Haha. 

3. Have you and SO ever broken up? Explain. no. With my ex we did the whole break up and make up thing far too often. Then when we finally broke up it was a hot mess. I told myself that I would never do that again with my next relationship – that either we work through our difficulties or we’re done for good. We’ve only been on the brink of break up one time and it was over 2 years ago when we had our first marriage conversation and we weren’t on the same page yet. 

4. Are you engaged/married? we have been engaged for 1 month and 1 day. 😀 

5. If you aren’t engaged/married, do you have a walk date or timeline? –

6. If you aren’t engaged/married, does SO seem on board with engagement in the very near future (1 year or less)? –

silverdreams:  We actually have varying stories so mine is first, and his is next.

1. How did you and your SO meet? And when?  

Me: We met at work.  I think around March 2013?  

Him: We met when she started in February 2013, I introduced myself, and hit on her for the next month before she finally deemed me worthy to go out with, don’t you remember?

Me: No, you definitely weren’t hitting on me, you were being nice!

Him: Right…

2. How long did you know each other before starting to date.  

Me: two weeks, we had talked prior, but one of my friends finally convinced me to go out with them to a bar.  

Him: No, we knew each other for at least a month, we talked every weekend, remember?  When our friend convinced her to go out to the bar with out, I used this as my moment to “impress” her, cause all of those other times didn’t work.  At this point, I really had nothing to lose.<br />

3. Have you and SO ever broken up? Explain.

Me: Nope, once I had him, I wasn’t letting go.

Him: I knew she was the one, so the thought of break up never crossed my mind

 

4. Are you engaged/married?

Me: Yes we are married!  Got married last May.

Him: Yep.

 

5. If you aren’t engaged/married, do you have a walk date or timeline?

N/A

6. If you aren’t engaged/married, does SO seem on board with engagement in the very near future (1 year or less)?

N/A
