    25 Love Its 10 Comments Name Dropper
    edited May 2013
    Screen Name: bbbb78

    Age: 23

    Significant Other's Age: 21

    What You Do:  Marketing in the architecture industry

    What SO Does:  Development trainee with an industrial supply company

    State of Relationship:  Currently dating, signing a lease together this week.  Ring is coming before we officially move in in August.

    How Long You've Been Together: 3.5 years

    How You Met:  My ex-boyfriend (who WAS my ex-boyfriend at the time as well) brought him along to a party I was throwing in my dorm room.  We went to high school together, but didn't know each other until college.

    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married):  Summer 2014

    Real Babies: are still chillin' in my ovaries for now.

    Fur Babies:  a big dopey orange cat named Bert.  we have plans to get a golden retriever puppy in the next year or so (we'll see how much planning a wedding throws a wrench in that).

    Loves: travel, blogging, wine, antiques, puppies, crockpots, long drives with SO, psycho-analyzing our friends, photography, popcorn, gushers, the way SO's laugh gets super shrill when he finds something really really funny, extravagant evening-wear, entertaining, hungover brunch, vladimir nabokov, david foster wallace, christopher guest movies, fondue, ron swanson, and brightly colored lipstick.

    Hates: abuse, misogyny, misandry, serial killers, child pagents and the sexualization of youth in america, 

    Pet Peeves: people without opinions,
    political correctness that shuts down a discussion instead of promoting tact, people who ask for my advice, ignore it, and repeat, rude wait staff (particularly wait staff who ask "do you need change?"), people who believe awareness of their faults excuses them of having them, people who believe opinion and fact are the same thing, people who dislike "big words."

    Hobbies/Activities:  (see loves)

    Favorite Thing About Your SO:  i could gush for years.  i don't even know how to describe such a thing.  he is the best friend i have ever had.

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: he cracks every knuckle on his hands one at a time, which adds up to about a solid minute of 20 cracks.

    Describe Your Personality:  a sense of humor is essential to enjoy my personality.  i value fun over a lot of other qualities.  i tend to consider myself witty, creative, and somewhat lazy.  i majored in philosophy in college.  i think it is critical to have an open mind, but i think having an open mind should be a tool to make sound judgement... it is not always useful as a state of being.  if you can piece these bits together you probably get me well enough for our future relationship on a wedding message board.

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): 5?  i try not to be inflammatory, but sometimes bitches be trippin'.
     
    I've Been On TK Since:  this is my first post!  hence this introductory survey.  i've been lurking for about a year.

    How You Came to Be On TK:  i was originally on weddingbee, but i found the community to be rather trashy.  people whose opinions i tended to agree with were often encouraged to head over to TK.  i also had overshared on a few topics early on that i felt weren't anyone's business as i became less and less anonymous.

    How I like my potatoes:  twice baked.

    Favorite book/author:  lolita - vladimir nabokov

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself:  i have been to all but 6 of the 50 states... and my two siblings and I were all born on the same day of the month.
