- Wedding: July 2012
Hi ladies! I’ve been looking at this site for a long time and I finally decided to join. I’m 24 years old and am currently in grad school obtaining my Masters in Reading Education and also a School Library Media certification. I have been dating Mr. Wonderful for 5 years, but I have known him my entire life. He is actually, get this, the boy next door. 🙂 He has been my next door neighbor since we were kids. He developed a crush on me in middle school, but I wasn’t interested in him so we remained friends. I have many fond memories of us playing in the snow, dancing at school dances, hanging out at each others houses, and him meeting me every day at my locker to catch the bus. We have some pretty great memories! We parted ways at the end of highschool, but when we began attending the same college sparks began to fly and we’ve been dating since we were 18 and 19 years old. I love having a lifelong connection to him and I know he is the one I want to spend the rest of my life with.
I didn’t start getting antsy about dating for so long until about 6 months ago, when I unfortunatley had one of those “Are you ever going to marry me” moments after my friends wedding. (Think Jeniffer Aniston in He’s Not That Into You “If you aren’t going to marry me than stop being nice to me.”) He assured me that I am the one he wants to spend his life with, he’s just been waiting for us both to finish college and for him to finish his out of town job. (He’s an engineer working on a state highway 2 hrs away from our hometown.) He assured me that he realizes I’ve been waiting for a long time and I will have a ring by the end of this summer. It could be next week it could be August 31, we will see. 🙂
