    Pet Peeves:  long toenails.  

    Hobbies/Activities:  Running, board games, hanging out with close friends.

    Favorite Thing About Your SO: He is the smartest person that I have ever met but he treats everyone as though they have something to teach him. 

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO:  He's very quiet in groups of people. I wish he would share his thoughts and ideas with other people more.

    Describe Your Personality: I am a huge nerd.  Star Trek, LOTRs, GoT you name it, I am into it.  I am generally introverted but once I get to know people I am enthusiastic and talkative.  Most of my friends would describe me as very driven and hard-working which is true when I have a project that I'm interested in.  I am outdoorsy and adventurous; my SO thinks I'm a bit crazy in this regard.  

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): Honestly the idea of being snarky is very foreign to me.  I can certainly be opinionated but I'm not a sarcastic person generally.

    I've Been On TK Since: 2013 

    How You Came to Be On TK: A lot of my friends have been getting engaged/married in the last couple of years but I didn't get on TK until two of my brothers got engaged and I was bridesmaid.  

    How I like my potatoes: I love sweet potatoes, in any form.

    Favorite book/author: Man's search for meaning.  It's just a beautiful book.  

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I studied abroad in Ecuador for six months during college and I hope to visit that beautiful country again.

    What SO Does: Engineer


    State of Relationship: Dating (but starting to plan our wedding!)

    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.

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: His motorcycle hobby tends to worry me a little.

    Describe Your Personality: Laid back, go with the flow. Not big on confrontation at all

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): 2

    I've Been On TK Since: 2011 apparently, but I had completely forgotten about it until I signed up and realized I already had.

    How You Came to Be On TK: I was helping my cousin plan her wedding a few years ago

    How I like my potatoes: any way except potato salad... Yuck!

    Favorite book/author: I just finished The Help and it was awesome. Also, To Kill A Mockingbird

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I'm a sweet tea addict
  • Screen Name: I just changed it… I think it’s MH?? 

    Age: 26

    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 community college.

    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.
