- Wedding: March 2012
Hello! This is my first post. I’m pretty excited to have found this website.. I have been checking out other wedding planning sites and to be honest.. some are scary! Not very nice people out there! This board, from what I’ve read, seems to be a great fit for me:)
A little about me.. I’m 35… plus sized and tall (what a pretty bride I’ll be. ugh.) My fiance is slender and we’re about the same height.. this may all come into play in future posts re: shoes etc LOL! I’m self employed, never married, no children. I was engaged once but the minute I wanted to start talking about setting a date, he cheated on me with a coworker. My fiance had a bad experience as well… worse than mine probably, (which I will refrain from sharing since it’s his story to tell.. not mine) so both of us were pretty jaded.
I actually met him when I was 14 or 15 through a mutual friend. He was very interested in me but I was in party girl mode and too stupid to realize what was in front of me.
Finally when I was in college, we became closer and I was interested… and he disappeared. Turns out his sister didn’t give him msgs I was calling etc (which also may come into play in future posts). I tried finding him online etc in recent years and always wondered what became of him….
I joined a dating site in November 2009 and within the first few days of being on it, he found me:) He lives about 45 minutes from me…. we met for dinner and have been together since. This time I was the one to pursue…. and I wasn’t giving up this time;). We both had wondered about one another all this time…
Memorial Day weekend he took me to the Indy 500. I’m not a race fan but he went WAY out of his way to make the entire weekend PERFECT for me and I had the time of my life. He took me by a marble bench area and proposed. To be honest I don’t remember one thing he said LOL… but I said yes and now I’m marrying my best friend!!!
I am excited to be on this site because I am currently on a roller coaster with dates, honeymoon budget, unconventional wedding plans and family dynamics and your advise, ideas and friendship is really needed. I hope I can offer the same in return!!!
