    This is actually my second post on this thread.  My FI & I have been together for a long time.  I've known I've wanted to marry him since 2009, but I've been super patient with him because he's a divorcee and I wasn't in a hurry where I *needed* to get married for any particular reason.  Our relationship hit a rough spot about two years ago and we ended up cancelling our wedding - at one point it was more like we were roommates.  Counseling was had and we've been much better with our communication and working on issues as they come up than we had been prior to our problems.  I think it really woke both of us up and made us realize that we're worth fighting for all around: ourselves, each other, and as a couple.  Age, surprisingly to me after all this time, is finally a factor for the first time in our relationship.

  • Screen Name:  Futuremrshistorian

    Age: 27 (almost 28!)

    Significant Other's Age: 44

    What You Do: Grad student/adjunct prof

    What SO Does: He's an analyst.

    State of Relationship: We've decided to get married and talked about a timeline (shooting for next Spring...I usually hang out over on the May 2015 board).  He still wants to do a big surprise proposal, though, and his job keeps him overseas a lot of the time, so...everything is kind of in the air.  I'm comfortable planning because he told me (direct quote): "You know how my job works...I'll give you a ring and then have to leave 2 months later.  Go ahead and plan what you want, because I want you to have the wedding of your dreams."

    How Long You've Been Together: 3ish years.  We sort of lapsed from best friends to a couple slowly over time.

    How You Met: I took his class to meet one of my PhD requirements.  We were both seeing other people, but became friends, and then, when we were both single, decided to pursue a personal rather than professional relationship.

    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married):  We've talked about next May.

    Real Babies: He has two kids from a previous marriage; I have two nephews that are my current babies.

    Fur Babies: A lhasa apso that is convinced Mr. Historian is much better than me and sleeps on his side of the bed when he's gone.

    Loves: Reading, writing, Zumba (I'm an instructor), ballet, working on my house, ice cream. 

    Hates: Tomatoes, and driving over bridges.

    Pet Peeves: People who don't use their turn signals!

    Hobbies/Activities: Does watching Netflix and drinking wine count?

    Favorite Thing About Your SO: He is the absolute kindest person I have ever met.

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He can be really quiet, and sometimes doesn't stick up for himself.

    Describe Your Personality: Extrovert, very few secrets, excitable.  I have bipolar disorder, so I'm constantly dealing with emotional ups and downs and trying to advocate for others with the same illness but who might not want to be open about it.

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]):  Before I filter myself, about an 8.  But I usually try to filter and end up at about a 5.

    I've Been On TK Since: I joined a few years ago when my ex and I were talking seriously about getting married.  After we called everything off, I closed my account, then rejoined about a week ago.

    How You Came to Be On TK: Both of my sisters have been married in the past 4 years.  And, see above.

    How I like my potatoes:  Eat ALL the potatoes!  Noms.  These days I bake a sweet potato and then sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon on it.

    Favorite book/author: Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence.  Or, Barbara Kingsolver's Poisonwood Bible.  This is a pretty serious topic for me.  I majored in history and taught English for years.

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: really love camels.

    Wedding Countdown Ticker
  • Hello there! Been lurking for a while, first post. Hope to get to know more of you over the course of time, particularly since I feel like I'm gonna be NEY for a good few years, which is fine by me! We'd like to have stability first, if at all possible. Vaguely stable. A lil' bit of money. We tell each other that it's all for "the tiny house," our next big life goal. I'm SO excited to share my first home with my boyfriend! Anyway. The list!

    Screen Name: ourladyofpotato

    Age: 24

    Significant Other's Age: 22

    What You Do: Cashier, for now!

    What SO Does: Frozen department guy, studying to be a history teacher

    State of Relationship: Pretty serious! We've been best friends for years. We want to be best friends for years more.

    How Long You've Been Together: Four months! It feels like forever.

    How You Met: We have the same best friend. He's a filmmaker and he and I direct and write and act in a webseries. Anthony (the BF) was an actor in that series. When I first met him, I didn't have an opinion of him, but the more I got to know him... the more I hated him. He was an arrogant, judgemental prick and I let everyone know what I thought of him. Turned out that pretty much everyone else felt the same way, but over time, he grew on them and they became best friends. For a long time, that wasn't happening for me! I still couldn't bear to be around him.

    Wasn't the same for him, though. He loved me almost at first sight and worked tirelessly to win my affections, but all he succeeded in doing was consistently upsetting and offending me. After a while, though, he seemed to change for the better. I didn't feel judged anymore. He took interest in my problems and helped me with them. He says, "I wanted to get to know you - I didn't know anything about you. You were the one person I couldn't peg." And that was on purpose. I didn't want him to know about me because that's just more for him to sit around judging and psychoanalyzing.

    One day I was just so angry I let loose on him on the phone. I told him everything I couldn't stand about him. He said he just wanted to get to know me, and could we please hang out some time? I thought, maybe I'm being a little unfair. Maybe I should give him one chance. So I let him take me to Applebees.

    It was the most wonderful dinner of my life.

    Later I took him to Six Flags for a day trip. I told him about myself, my problems, the things going on in my life. He sat next to me on the rapids ride and told me that it would be okay while occasionally getting owned by a big splash of freezing water. I trusted him for the first time on the rapids ride. A few hours later, I kissed him for the first time on the monorail.

    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): If all goes well, talk to me in 2019 or 2020.

    Real Babies: Lord, no. Not yet.

    Fur Babies: McKenna the Cavalier!

    Loves: Those shit TV shows on TLC, especially Say Yes To The Dress and Something Borrowed. My dog, good food, video games. Anthony and our best friend Dustin.

    Hates: Assholes, passive aggression, carrots.

    Pet Peeves: I couldn't list these without encountering it. Then I would remember, and be like "Yes, that is a pet peeve of mine!" The only thing I can think of right now is how on Say Yes To The Dress in the wedding footage at the end, they always play the same god damn song. It's not even a good song.

    Hobbies/Activities: Pfft, working. TV and video games during my down time. It's my relaxation method. Browsing The Knot.

    Favorite Thing About Your SO: He tries so hard to make me happy! I think he's wonderful.

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He occasionally shouts the same stupid lyric from the same stupid song at random times and if I could erase his memory of that song and actively prevent him from re-hearing it I totally would.

    Describe Your Personality: Frank, people-pleaser, a little pretentious sometimes. Excitable, genuine, impatient.

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): 3

    I've Been On TK Since: October 18

    How You Came to Be On TK: When I got way too excited about the potential wedding between Anthony and I that won't even happen for five years.

    How I like my potatoes: In the likeness of Our Lady. (I started a joke with the Tumblr Catholics that spiralled into insanity, you can find it here.

    Favorite book/author: Probably The Belgariad/Malloreon series by David Eddings.
