- Wedding: June 2013
I’m officially waiting on the ring, so I figured I’d introduce myself 😀
My SO and I have been dating for a little over a year and a month, but we’ve known each other since our senior year of high school when he started dating a close friend of mine. I had absolutely no interest in him at the time, and we rarely talked. We both graduated and went our separate ways, and I never really thought I’d have much contact with him after that.
Fast forward about three years, he’s a junior at the University of Washington and had gone through an awful breakup with his high school girlfriend about a year before, and I had recently gotten through with a year of soul searching while working at Walt Disney World and had just moved back to Washington. My best friend invited me to a couple parties at one of the fraternities at UW, and it happened to be the one that my SO belonged to. After a few months of seeing him every once in a while, we eventually ended up at a dinner party at a mutual friend’s house. Long story short, we ended up making out in one of the bathrooms after doing a couple tequila shots (classy, I know). The next day he asked me out, and the rest is history.
We started browsing for a ring last November, but nothing serious until we went through an ordeal with his family over Christmas. We got through it, and it made our relationship much stronger, so we made the decision that we really wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. That’s when we started seriously started looking and found moissanite. I love that it’s inexpensive and eco friendly, and he thinks it’s awesome that it’s only found naturally in meteorites. He just finished paying off some debts to his parents a couple weeks ago, and now I’m just waiting for him to buy the ring and pop the question.
I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone here. I’ve lurked for a while, and this is such a supportive community and I’m so happy that I get to join it.
P.S. I think I’ve said maybe five things to the friend my SO dated in high school in the past three years. There was no boyfriend stealing at all. As far as I know, she’s happy for us.
