    HI all,
    I am new to the NEY boards. I am 23 and the bf is 24, we met a little over a year ago and will be official 1 year on May 15th. He has already bought the ring and showed it to me to make sure it was the "right one" (he got it super on sale the last day of the sale and couldn't return it after for a different one). Its gorgeous and perfect! I can't wait for the proposal and since we are looking into buying a house in the very near future I have a feeling he will want the ring on the finger before the names on the title. lol

    Can't wait to post and comment more!

    CCO

    Only change, we are waiting a bit on the house... Just can't seem to find the right one for us.

    Have you met a troll on here yet?
    Probably many, but I'm not concerned with them!

    Ever been interrogated?
    Not really.

    What is your favorite thread topic?
    I like questions, and I love when people AW with pics, especially wedding ones! I'm an event planner, and I love seeing other peoples ideas and plans  :)

    Over two years ago

    When did you start posting?
    Same. I started slowly and built up. It did actually take a while for people to know who I was and for me to be a "reg" that was widely recognized.

    I pre-date the Introduce yourself sticky. I think I piggy-backed on Loopy's intro post. But since I started posting, I got engaged, then married, and now we're talking about house buying and TTC.

    Have you met a troll on here yet?
    My favorite troll was Jeana -- she did funny fake troll posts, like the infamous "engaugmint chikkin" post.

    Ever been interrogated?
    Nope

    What is your favorite thread topic?
    Honestly, I like to give advice. It's why I'm still here. So my favorite threads are ones where I feel like I add something of substance to the conversation. But I do also like chatty threads, if, as PPs said, they move quickly enough to keep me interested. I also love threads that start one way and take a turn into the silly. :)

    I posted an intro thread on the sticky. I think it was January!

    When did you start posting?
    January :)

    Share your introductory post? What has changed??
    It's just the basic like "Hi, I'm Alanna...". My first post other than that was about e-rings. I wanted more info/opinions on non-diamond rings. I was upset because BF had asked for my opinion and I wanted to be surprised. Surprisingly, I didn't get flamed. Mutley did post me a"google it yourself" link though.
    Even though that was only back in January, a lot has changed with me. I don't think much about engagements, and I don't bring it up to BF. That's his business now.

    Have you met a troll on here yet?
    Yes, there's trolls all over the internet. They make stuff interesting, but sometimes annoying :)

    Ever been interrogated?
    Not yet!

    What is your favorite thread topic?
    I love the threads were someone posts something controversial and we all discuss and debate.

    Too lazy to go back through to find it... lol We weren't living together at the time, but did have an offer in on a house. At the time my hamster was still alive so she's listed as a fur baby. Not much else has changed.

    One year ago!  Wow time has flown!

    The same time, though I was really timid.

    Well I have been lurking around on this board for a while.  Put in my two cents when I have felt I could and now I would like to introduce myself.  I am 19, in college with my major being English Lit and Linguists.  My BF is also in college, we have been dating for two years.  We met at the end of high School and have been together ever since.   He is pretty awesome considering we stayed together while I lived in Europe for 4 and a half months.  We are quite serious and if we had the money we would get married.  I really like this board.  Yes sometimes people are harsh but I think it comes from bad experiences of softer comments not being received so well.  I will do my best not to be one who over reacts. Overall I think you girls offer good advice and a good, supportive community, which is very attractive.  I appreciate that.  It is hard to find people who are so open to new people and so welcoming. :)  I thank you girls for that.  Thank you for already providing me laughs and good advice just in the short time I have lurked!  :DBleh.  I try to forget about this post.  A lot has changed.  I am less BSC but I still like the girls.
     

    Have you met a troll on here yet?
    Oh yes.

    Ever been interrogated?
    Yes :/
    What is your favorite thread topic?
    I like the advice ones, I like the random ones, I love it when we bond and grow closer together.  :)

    Early June

    Ok let's see.. I'm Rachel, my bf & I have been together for 4 years.  We're both 25 almost 26 (his bday is next week & mine is next month). We moved in together after dating for just 6 months (pretty quick, IMO but luckily it worked out haha).  As far as getting engaged, we've talked about it for a while & looked at rings last week so he knows exactly what I like & dislike.   We live iin New Jersey near NYC & we have 2 cats, Bailey & Hailey, & 1 dog, a pit bull named Lucy.  I love football (Eagles, I'm from Philly originally!) & we're both obsessed with hockey (NJ Devils season tix holders woot!).  I love trying new restaurants & going out.  I love traveling &  I read a ton, most recently The Hunger Games while on a cruise a little over a week ago.  I watch entirely too much TV.  I have a few close girlfriends, 1 I've known since I was 4.  I guess that's it for now!

    Nothing has changed, it wasn't that long ago

    Yeah, I'm glad Lunar and others persist in posting those threads. Even when I don't respond or I'm not doing what I know I should, seeing the threads reminds me. I've actually gotten at least a little back on track this week and will try to participate more in the WSG on the board.

    When did you introduce yourself on NEY?
    First time was Jan. of 2009, but that relationship was no good.
    This time was late May of 2011.

    When did you start posting?
    Same day as I joined.

    Hi, I'm Ely. I'm new here. Kinda. Here's some background info if you're interested. I found this site a few years ago when I was dating my first ever boyfriend and thought it was getting serious. Luckily, it ended before it could because I have met the man of my dreams now. He makes me happier than I ever thought anyone ever could and the thing that lets me know that he's the one is that I have no doubts about him. There was always one little thing that would bother me about other guys, but there's nothing with him. It just seems to be a perfect match. We met a year ago on a dating site and have been happily together ever since.

    We recently started looking at engagement rings so he can get an idea of what I like so he can pick one out and I'll be surprised, but it will still be something that I love. Here's my question: I like yellow gold and he's looking at the white tungsten carbide for his band. It doesn't seem like people bother to match rings anymore, but is it weird to get two different colors? I like the idea of matching, but really prefer the yellow gold and he can't see himself wearing the yellow gold. Any suggestions? I'm ok with the white gold and have found a ring I really like already but just curious to hear some opinions.

    Thanks, and sorry that was so long!


    Have you met a troll on here yet?
    I just realized I no longer have an "N" by my name. I have a "B" and still don't know if I know the exact definition of a troll, so I'm going to say no.

    Ever been interrogated?
    Just a few questions about cheese and Harry Potter when I first joined, lol.

    What is your favorite thread topic?
    I'm kind of addicted to anything fitness/nutrition related and I also love serious conversations/getting-to-know-you topics and, of course, I love looking at everyone's favorite rings.

    When did you introduce yourself on NEY?
    Last fall. Around the time that it says I joined.

    When did you start posting?
    The same time.

    Share your introductory post? What has changed??

    I posted on the "Introduce yourself here" thread, and I thought that just allowed me to jump right into posting. I didn't realize no one really read those intros. I made a thread about BSC girls and a show called Jilted. I totally missed that someone else had posted the same topic. So lots of people were like, "Uh, we already have a thread on this...Who are you?" and I felt like the biggest newb ever. People encouraged me to make an intro post so I did this:

    Hi Everyone!

    I'm not engaged, but I'm on this website because it's required reading for a social events/wedding planning class I'm taking. I want to one day be an events planner, specializing in weddings. I was excited to see this website had a community, because I love meeting and interacting with new people. I've been lurking for a bit, but I've decided to start posting.

    A little about me: I'm 22, and I recently graduated from college with degrees in Political Science and German. I don't want to do anything with those majors, though, so now I'm taking classes in what I wanted to study all along. I love animals. I have one tabby cat, but I wish I had many more pets! I have a wonderful BF. We've known each other for about 4 years and been together for 2.5 of them. Oh, and I like shiny stuff! That's why my screen name is Sparkles. If anything has glitter or rhinestone trim, I'm almost guaranteed to like it.


    I think the only thing that changed is I'm no longer in school, and I'm now 23. Oh and BF and I have been together for 3 years now.


    Have you met a troll on here yet?

    I have seen a few. I typically don't bother to post on those threads, though.

    Ever been interrogated?
    yes

    What is your favorite thread topic?
    The posts about rings or furbabies. As my intro said, I am a sucker for anything shiny (I'm like a fish) or animals.
