Screen Name: BlueObsidian
Significant Other's Age: 38
What You Do: Just graduated law school, and I also work as a freelance writer.
What SO Does: Butcher
State of Relationship: Not officially engaged, but starting to plan (he wants to wait until after I pass the bar exam for the "official" proposal, but with the venue and date we want, we need to get a deposit down pretty soon).
How Long You've Been Together: 2 years
How You Met: We lived in the same apartment building and I would always see him walking by. After about a year, I hadn't met him and was really curious, so I went out of my way to smile and say hello a few times until we finally started chatting. We've been inseparable ever since!
Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): August 10, 2013 (unless we decide to just elope, which has also been a real possibility)
Real Babies: None
Fur Babies: 2 kitties, Buzz and Lulu
Loves: Sitting in front of the fireplace reading a book on a rainy evening. Going for a walk along the river with my guy.
Hates: I'm not at all spontaneous, so I hate not having plans. Even if things change down the line, I like to feel like they are somewhat organized.
Pet Peeves: Super slow drivers in the left-hand lane.
Hobbies/Activities: Reading, writing, just hanging out and watching movies. We're both homebodies and pretty laid back in our free time.
Favorite Thing About Your SO: He's super mellow and almost nothing bothers him. He is the calmest, sweetest influence in my life.
Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: Sometimes he's too quiet. I suppose it balances out, since I'm so talkative, but I'd love to hear his opinions more often!
Describe Your Personality: A little high-strung, but very organized and dependable. I'd like to think that I would do anything for the people I love!
Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): 6. I used to be much more sarcastic and snarky (and it still comes out sometimes), but it's getting better.
I've Been On TK Since: I've probably had the account for a little over a year, although I've only been on here a lot the last couple weeks.
How You Came to Be On TK: I first signed up when looking at bridesmaid dresses for my BFF's wedding, and came back a few weeks ago when we started talking about a wedding date more seriously.
How I like my potatoes: Mashed, with lots of garlic
Favorite book/author: Probably "Haroun and the Sea of Stories" by Salman Rushdie
Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: After college, I went to culinary school and worked as a baker for four years. The bakery I worked for specialized in wedding cakes, so I've seen a LOT of weddings.
