Not Engaged Yet
Options

HI! Wanted to say hi and introduce myself!

Hi ladies!   I've been lurking here some but wanted to sort of step out of the shadows and say hello!

I am not 'formally' engaged in my mind (don't yet have a ring) but am living with my boyfriend and we are planning our future together.  He asked me to marry him on our 3rd date (not even joking) and we've been living together for a few months now.  I know...I know..it sounds crazy!  But, we've both been in long term relationships and engaged previously....and literally when we met it was love at first site.

We met online through Match.com - but it turns out that one of his long time friends actually married one of my college roommates!  They got married in CA...and we were both supposed to be at the wedding...but couldn't make it due to different circumstances in our lives at the time.  In fact, MANY times over the past 5 years...our paths could have crossed (and our friends that we had in common had tried to MAKE them cross) but they didn't.  It is funny how things work out!

Anyway...I just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself and say "Hi" to everyone!

    Hi!

    Funny how life works, isn't it?

    How old are you and your BF?  What do you do for a living ?  Do you like Harry Potter?

    Hi!

    I like your story a lot! I never believed people when they said things like, "when you know, you know" but it is how it works sometimes isn't it? My BF and I were friends and then sort of half dating/FWB for a while, but as soon as we both decided to try for real, everything just clicked really fast.

    Favorite food/book/movie? :)

    Hi, welcome. If your screen name is your real name (which I'm guessing it is), you probably want to go ahead and change it now. People on the interwebz be crazy.

    Hi Elle!

    I answered some of the "poll" questions on the intro thread above...but let's see:

    I am 32, going to be 33 later this month.  My boyfriend, Tom, is 34 going to be 35 in October.  I am a an executive recruiter/headhunter for a living...and make independent films as a 'hobby'

    And I do like Harry Potter :)

    Thank you all for your warm welcomes! 

    And, Anne - I love wine.  One of my favorite things to do, when I'm not working, working on movies...or out fishing with my guy...is to tour around different local wineries and try what they have.  Unfortunately, I haven't gotten to do that recently, but it is always fun when I do get to go!

    LMFAO. I am not the typical philly fan - I'm okay with the Steelers, but don't like the Pirates, and the only good part of the Penguins are that, I love penguins the animal, and that Mario Lemiuex is fanfvckingtastic. LOL.
    We can still be friends...just not in regards to sports :-P
