  • ive been looking around a lot and i posted today looking for advice and sympathy and some understanding. i understand people trying to make people look at things from a real perspective. and i appreciate that but the people who walk around with this moral superiority and telling me im not mature enough to be married. i support that everyone has an opinion. i don't disagree with that. but there has to be a nice way to say things. ive been dating the same person in a committed relationship living together as long as some people on this site. all i was looking for a friend or a shoulder. instead im told im nagging and immature. that beyond rude and i thought people would actually be here to support one another... thats just so sad that people seem to have more fun getting off on moral superiority and putting others down then being supportive and helpful!

    Hobbies/Activities: Reading, writing, art, photography, running, losing weight, cooking, fashion, shopping, pinterest pinning
    Favorite Thing About Your SO: Romantic, great sense of humor, AMAZING smile, keeps me balanced <3 
    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He sometimes gets in moods where he just wants to be annoying...weird, I know. But he'll purposely do things he knows gets on my nerves! >:( 
    Describe Your Personality: Outgoing. Spontaneous. Honest (sometimes too honest?) 
    Snark Level: I don't really know what would be described as "snarky", but if it's what I think, I'd say a 4?
    I've Been On TK Since: I signed up for TK a few months back...even though I'm not engaged yet I love looking through all the articles and photos to get ideas for my future wedding! (It's a virgo thing--I love to be prepared.)
    How You Came to Be On TK: A coworker of mine showed it to me. 
    How I like my potatoes:  Diced and turned into grits!
    Favorite book/author: I really don't know that I could pick just one. But I suppose if I had to narrow it down it would be Harry Potter--I know, super cliche, but from a reading standpoint, the books are so beautifully written, and you get so caught up in them you feel like you're right there in the middle of everything, not just an outsider. Rowling forms the characters so beauitfully you feel like you know everyone personally. 
    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I am capable of being very blunt and honest and sometimes even inconsiderate of other peoples feelings to make sure they know the truth, and that doesn't bother me, but I will feel the most guilt in the world for a fictional character on a TV show who accidentally dropped their toy boat down the sewer. Backwards, right?

    How Long You've Been Together: ....I'm supposed to keep track of that?
    How You Met: I was walking around carrying my (then baby, now toddler) niece on a summer day and he walked up to tell me my baby was adorable (He told me later that it took a considerable amount of guts to just walk up), and when I told him she was my niece, he got embarrassed and blushed and I thought it was adorable and he asked me out for coffee (seriously, who goes out for coffee anymore? Apparently losers like me and him), and I went, and that was our first date and it lasted about eight hours. By our second date, we pretty much already knew it was going to get serious and by our third date, we had no secrets left to tell each other.

When we get our ranch in Montana (you know, at a half past never in the year only in our dreams), we both want horses (He likes their strength and beauty, I used to volunteer in a horse rescue and rehabilitation center), and I want a pet pig. Don't know why. But I want a pig.
