WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): When you are staring off into the distance, you are imagining getting engaged to your man. When he is staring off into the distance it is probably something else!!

Comments (for longer story if you wish):

I’ve been waiting only 4 months or so, since we went on our first holiday together and I realised I wanted to be with him permanently, but it feels like forever. Haven’t felt this way in previous relationships and as I don’t want kids I doubt it is a tick-tock related thing. 

Sometimes I want to strangle him, but when he holds me I feel more at peace than I ever have before. Soppy I know.

Age: 32

Occupation: Systems Analyst/Programmer

SO’s age: 30

SO’s Occupation: Technical Analyst/Programmer

How you met: Back when we both worked on the helpdesk for a local hospital

Relationship length: 2.75 years

A few words to describe yourself: Nerdy, cat-lady gamer

A few words to describe your SO: Tall, not-so-dark, and handsome! Very intelligent and always trying to do his best with me!

Interests: Drinking, MMO gaming, kitties!, and watching wedding shows!

Kids?/Pets?: Two beautiful little kitty sisters!

Guilty pleasures: Expensive cheese and crying when “Too Cute” is on because it seriously is just too cute to handle and I don’t know what to do with my happy.

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): STFU. I’ve got to start taking my own advice.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): 

We both met while working on the helpdesk, and I actually wrote him off at first because I never would have thought a guy like him would go for a gal like me! Time passed and we hung out as friends, (it was easy to be friends because I figured he wasn’t interested!) and of course one slightly drunken night I boldly went in for the kill! And holy crap! He reciprocated! Our start was a little rocky but we ended up going to a Florence and the Machine concert together in Philadelphia on June 30th (almost 3 years ago) and have been inseparable since! We both now have good jobs and live together with our two little kitty girls. Everything seems to have fallen into place and it just feels like it works so well with the two of us.

We are verging on the three year mark (June 30th, 2014) and I have made it known that I am ready to stop waiting SOON! I have read the forums and definitely have shared the frustrations, but I think the end may be in sight and I’m feeling a little more hopeful than I have in months! He really is the perfect match for me and we get on great. I don’t question him being all I need for the rest of my life…with our kitties of course! πŸ™‚

Location: Virginia

Age: 20

Occupation: Student

SO’s age: 23

SO’s Occupation: Grad student

How you met: At his 21st birthday party…not the cutest story, but hey, that’s us

Relationship length: 2 years and 4 months

A few words to describe yourself: Neat, organized, put-together

A few words to describe your SO: Goofy, hardworking, smart

Interests: Baking. But I’m trying to lose about 20 lbs so I guess working out is one of my interests now because it has to be, and I have cut down on the baking

Kids?/Pets?: We are hoping to get an english bulldog once we move in together! 

Guilty pleasures: For me, baked goods. For him, craft beers. But I don’t think he feels guilty about them so maybe they’re not a guilty pleasure?

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): I’m not very inspirational so I can’t think of anything…

Comments (for longer story if you wish): We met about 2.5 years ago and were already talking about marriage after 3 months of dating. However I was a freshman in college so that was definitely not happening any time soon. I’m finishing up my bachelor’s degree this summer and he is finishing his master’s around the same time, so the timing is finally right and we are very excited to start our lives together post-college πŸ™‚ We picked out the ring (and he purchased it) about a month ago, so hopefully a proposal is coming soon!

SO and I met when I was 15, he was 22. He was my ex’s brothers best friend, and I naturally ran into him because my ex lived with his brother. We never really talked until I broke up with my ex. He was a great friend. We continued being friends for a while until I explored my life and we rarely talked anymore. I started college the fall semester and we reconnected and we felt a connection. We had more of a fling going on but soon we fell for each other then we finally started dating. And here we are now!

WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet!

Comments (for longer story if you wish): SO is from England, and I was starting my bachelor’s degree at the same university. We met on the facebook group for our dorm in the Spring before we started, he messaged me welcoming me to England and asking why I chose to go abroad for my degree. We ended up hitting it off, and spoke for hours everyday throughout the summer. By the time I got to England, I felt like I already had a best friend and felt much more comfortable being by myself in a foreign country when I already established a support network! I got very, very sick my first week there with the swine flu, and being 5,000 miles away from any family or friends, he took care of me. We were just friends for awhile, but a little too much alcohol pushed it the other way! I wasn’t looking for a relationship, so we were FWB for awhile. He really thought we should give it a proper go, and here we are almost 4.5 years later! After a month of officially dating, he told me he loved me. The next month, he told me he wanted to marry me and he would do anything to make me his wife (obviously I didn’t take him seriously since he was only 19!) Unfortunately, that was right around the time I ended up moving back to America. We did almost 2.5 years of transatlantic long distance until he finished undergrad and came to my city for grad school. We lived together until he graduated with his master’s in December of 2013, when he was offered a fantastic job opportunity in another state. We are now back to long distance until I graduate this May, when I will then move to be with him. PHEW! We’ve been all over the place together, and I can’t wait to have more adventures as an engaged and married couple. We’ve been to look at rings, and I think he will be proposing later this year or early next year. πŸ˜€

Comments (for longer story if you wish): My bf moved in quite early with me (after 6 months), and there had been a lot of proposal talk around that time.. I thought I was going to get engaged very quickly! Now over a year later, all wedding talk has completely dried up, and I’m trying to find productive ways to bring it up without seeming going OTT. Hopefully I can learn from other gracious bees & we’ll all have our happy endings πŸ™‚
