Hi πŸ™‚ I LOVE one tree hill!! I watched every single episode on netflix!! anyway…

I am from the quad cities, which is near chiago il…kinda near anyway, about 3 hours away

I just turned 20 on the 19th of October

My SO will be 20 on the 19th of November

We have been together for for only 11 months but have known each other since jr high

The favorite thing about my SO is not only that he is my best friend, but that no matter what happens, we get through it. Also that he is completely faithful πŸ™‚

Wedding date is May 3rd 2013

Engagement is 11 months. so not really long but not short.

I am an assitant manager at a dollar store and a full time student.

As of right now I am just getting gen eds with a focus on math and economics

I am getting married young because age does not matter, its love. I’ve known he was the one since the beginning of our relationship.

Most annoying thing people say is that we need to wait and we are too young to settle down. We live together, getting married isn’t that much bigger of a step than living together in my opinion.

Most annoying comment of on being a young bride? I don’t get comments from people since we’re not formally engaged yet, but a few of my friends I have told tell me I won’t live until I’ve travelled and seen the world, etc. etc. My family won’t have a problem with it, since a lot of them married young and they all basically consider my SO family already, my cousins call him “cuz” and such.

@ClassyKate:  Ooh, I hate the “waiting to have sex” comments, too. Even though some people don’t say it aloud, you can tell they’re thinking it. And we haven’t even been dating half as long as you two! I can only imagine how annoying it is! Around here, if you wait a few months to have sex you’ve been “waiting forever.”
