Favorite Thing About Your SO: He treats me like gold! Has since the day we met. I've never met a sweeter man in my entire life.
Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He's only had one long-term relationship before me, and sometimes his lack of experience can definitely be an issue. He and his ex never argued (which, I would suggest was one of their problems), so he doesn't think that SOs should ever argue. I just don't believe that that's true, I think healthy, respectful arguments are really important to a relationship.

Really I'm just waiting for him to pop the question so that we can really kick the planning into high gear!

Screen Name: I just changed it… I think it’s
Significant Other's Age: (almost) 24…
I guess that makes me a cougar?!
What You Do: I just finished my TESOL (Teaching
English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificate, and I’m a little over a
week away from being done with my BA in linguistics (with a minor in Norwegian
language). I have a weekend
administrative assistant job waiting for me, starting at the end of this month
(August), and I’m applying for positions in the public school district in my
area, as a paraeducator and substitute teacher. Eventually I’ll be applying for English teaching positions in
other parts of the world.
What SO Does: He took the TESOL certificate program
with me! Before that, he was
working as a Case Manager/Behavior Health Counselor for an organization
supporting refugee women and their families. Yep, I’m proud of him.
He’s also applying for various English teaching positions – both in our
area and overseas.
State of Relationship: We’re dating and have been
discussing marriage for about a year and a half. He has already bought my engagement ring. (I think he might be waiting for me to
finish school )
How Long You've Been Together: getting
close to 2.5 years
How You Met: We were both writing tutors at our
Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): N/A, but
approximately 7 months from the time he proposes…
Real Babies: None.
Fur Babies: None.
Loves: So many things. Firstly: Jesus, my family and boyfriend. Secondly: people, community, traveling,
cultures, writing, water, little flowers, fruit, Norway, LANGUAGE, Pilates,
Nugatti (a way better version of Nutella) writing, lakes, sushi, cats, good
ranch dressing, greek olives, springtime, summer rain, laughter and smiles,
trees and leaves, rivers and rain, sunshine and snowflakes, pudding and popsicles,
music and movies, and skipping and dancing (lyrical, “freestyle,” Zumba,
Bachata, Salsa, East Coast Swing), photography, etc…
Hates: onions, SUPER spicy food (I think I’m
allergic, seriously. My lips get
red and then they sting for hours, my nose starts running, my eyebrows start
sweating… it’s bad), the dog at the house where I’m staying, dogs in general
(I’m short, so they always jump on me and sniff my crotch and sneeze on me),
the movie “Open Water,” the movie “The Life of Pi,” horses, hiking, when people
demand me to be something I’m not, sleep paralysis, when people rush me, when
people are demanding and judgmental in general…
Pet Peeves: Umm, yeah, see “Hates” in the above
question. But also the obvious ones
like wet socks, paper cuts, blah blah blah…
Hobbies/Activities: taking/editing pictures, writing, cooking, dancing (ballroom
and latin styles, mostly), and I want to re-pick up crocheting as soon as I finish school.
Favorite Thing About Your SO: I have a tendency to worry, let my mind jump way ahead, and imagine the
worst possible scenarios. He calms
me down, keeps me sane, puts things in perspective, and encourages me… he
ALWAYS knows exactly what to say.
Sometimes he doesn’t even need to say anything. A simple hug from him can ease my crazy
mind and put everything in its proper perspective again. He’s like magic. Calming, soothing magic.
Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He likes to
play things by ear even more than I do, so sometimes it can be really difficult
to make plans with him ahead of time.
Describe Your Personality: I’m an
extroverted introvert. I need my
downtime SO BAD. But I’m friendly
and outgoing and eventually need to be around people.
Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): With new
people, like a 2 or 3. With people
I know really well, like a 5 or 6.
I've Been On TK Since: Off and on for months
How You Came to Be On TK: I don’t even
know! Maybe through Pinterest?
How I like my potatoes: fried and with ranch or baked
and with butter
Favorite book/author: whosever books I actually
finish. I am more of a talker,
listener, and writer than a reader.
I get so distracted when I read.
So I have about a billion half-read books and another two billion books
on my “books to read” list. That’s
only a slight exaggeration. Maybe
J.D. Salinger, C.S. Lewis, and Francine Rivers?
Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: 1. I traveled and lived elsewhere for three years after high
school. I spent most of the time
in Norway and Ethiopia, but also spent time in Thailand, Sweden, Switzerland,
Scotland, England, Latvia, and some other places… 2. I suffer from a phenomenon known as sleep paralysis. Contrary to what some people say, it's not aliens, ghosts, or anything supernatural. Rather, I believe it is a neurological condition that science can explain.
