  • Screen Name: KelseyJ325

    Age: 21

    Significant Other's Age: 22

    What You Do: Full time student (animal science), part time poultry farm worker

    What SO Does: Website programmer/designer. Going back to school soon for his phd in computer science

    State of Relationship: The ring is picked out and we live together!

    How Long You've Been Together: Just over 3 years

    How You Met: Okcupid! Internet dating really works!

    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): October 31, 2015 (We really want a Halloween wedding and it falls on a Saturday in 2015. Long wait, but its worth it!)

    Real Babies: None for awhile

    Fur Babies: Bandit, the most spoiled, amazing shih tzu ever (momma's boy)! A ragdoll cat named Freya (daddy's girl). Narcissa (Cissy) and Bellatrix (Bella) the chinchillas (they just plain hate everyone, unless you have food!)

    Loves: ANIMALS

    Hates: As horrible as it sounds, PEOPLE. But I'm overly cynical.

    Pet Peeves: People who ask stupid questions simply because they don't know how to use google. People that act like they're God's gift to earth (cuz honestly, you're really nothing special). Girls that drink the slightest bit of alcohol and use that as an excuse to be a skank.

    Hobbies/Activities: We are serious home bodies. We don't drink/party. The boyfriend is ridiculously outgoing, but I'm extremely shy, so I really don't like going out places if there is going to be a huge crowd.

    Favorite Thing About Your SO: He's TALL (6'5) compared to me (5'2). it makes it extremely easy to find him if we are ever in a crowd. He's got the cutest red hair and the most gorgeous blue eyes but he isn't "gingery" (no freckles). He's extremely attentive and loving if you can get his attention. He's also stuck with me through some of the hardest years of my life and I can never repay him for that.

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: Dear Lord, please make him shut off the computer/video games. He is ALWAYS connected in some way and it drives me INSANE. He's also horribly smart. And I don't mean smart as in "Oh, I got into a decent college." I mean smart as in started highschool at 9 and graduated at 14. You'd think that'd be great, right? Well he has no motivation to go along with that big, fat brain. He has all these great ideas but never has the drive to put them into action. Also, I'm no idiot, but he sometimes makes me feel that I have the brain compacity of a shrimp.

    Describe Your Personality: Horrendously shy. It often makes me look like a mean person, when in reality, I'm probably one of the nicest people you'll ever meet, as long as you're not overly idiotic. I love animals and kids to the core and just WISH I could be put in a room with the people who abuse these poor, defenseless creatures, and allowed to do anything I please with no legal ramifications.

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): Depends on the day, but closer to the high end.

    I've Been On TK Since: I don't even remember!

    How You Came to Be On TK: When we started looking for a ring, I figured this would be a good resource.

    How I like my potatoes: Mashed. With garlic. And maybe some cheese.

    Favorite book/author: Definitely don't have a favorite author. I LOVED Ape House by Sara Gruen. Everything Harry Potter related. Anything by Jodi Picoult is pretty amazing too.

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I let my dog pick my major. I started off going to college for psychology. I then realized that working with animals may be a better fit for me. I said, "Bandit this hand(left) is animal science. This hand(right) is psychology." He chose the left hand TWICE. I hope he has good judgement!

    Favorite Thing About Your SO: He's super mellow and almost nothing bothers him. He is the calmest, sweetest influence in my life.

    Describe Your Personality: A little high-strung, but very organized and dependable. I'd like to think that I would do anything for the people I love!

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): 6. I used to be much more sarcastic and snarky (and it still comes out sometimes), but it's getting better.

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: After college, I went to culinary school and worked as a baker for four years.  The bakery I worked for specialized in wedding cakes, so I've seen a LOT of weddings.

    How Long You've Been Together: August 26, 2007

    How You Met: He worked at a gym I went to while I worked at a coffee house. He was orginally scheduled to give me my first tour of the gym, but I canceled because I thought he was too attractive and I was intimidated so I canceled on him.

    A year later the girl at the front desk pulled me aside, and told me he was really into me and normally didn't even do intro tours, but was attracted to me. He didn't know how to come up to me without seeming like a sleexy personal trainer.  He found out the girl said something and was so embarssed he ended up asking me out tht afternoon to try to save face.  We moved in together 3 weeks later and have been together ever since.

    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): I do not have a ring, and so, not yet enagaged. But, we do know we want to start a family and get married within a year and a half. We're looking to maybe tying the knot around next October.

    I've Been On TK Since:  I've been on and off the knot for years helping others plan weddings since 2002.  It's just been in this last two weeks that I have started pinning some ideas for myself for the approaching someday.

    Real Babies: Technically none...the cat thinks he is though :)
    Fur Babies: Maddie--Dumeril Boa; Jasmine--leopard gecko; Aberforth & Mingo--9 month old ferrets; Leo--3 1/2 month old kitten we found abandoned when he was one day old...as noted above, he thinks he's people, and we are all too happy to play along. My mom calls him her grandkitten.

    Pet Peeves: Poor grammar. Stupidity (which, unfortunately, is my job security). Excessive swearing and foul language. Deprecating terms of endearment (no, sir, you are a complete stranger. I am not your "dear" or "honey," and most certainly will never be your "sweetheart.")

I have a slightly (very) distorted sense of humor (in emergency services, who doesn't?), and if I'm not over-committed and busy to the point of hair-pulling-out, I don't know what to do with myself.
    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): Internally, I am far beyond a 10. But in the interest of keeping my job and friends, I tone it down to 4-5 (which is more palatable to the general public).

    Ello, ello! I've been wanting to do this for a few weeks but I had to restrict my TK to my mobile phone because my SO very sternly stated, "Why do you keep looking at that stuff (wedding) when it's not even time yet?" U__U That was his way of saying, GTFO OF MY COMP IF YOU GONNA LOOK AT WEDDING STUFF. Fair enough, its just that his computer has such high quality graphics and my phone doesn't show the log-in page properly.

    For our 5 year anniversary, I am planning a cruise for us! So if any of you Knotties have any suggestions for some first timers, please message me or reply!

    Currently, we live together in a townhouse with other roommates. But due to some financial strain from helping out some of his family members, he has finally agreed to live with me at my parents place. Woot! I've been telling him that we should live back at my parents house so we can save financially for the future. Education /> Career > House > Wedding > PARTYHARD > Kids. Well, at least that's the intended plan. I know you can only plan so much until life wants to toss you a tornado :) Anyways, sorry for the long intro, I just wanted to throw it all out there! Just message me if you wanna chat!
