    1. How did you meet him and how old were you?

    We met in American Lit at Liberty University on August 25, 2008.  I was 21, he was 20.

     

    2. Was it love at first sight?

    I had an almost pathetic crush on him from the moment he turned around and introduced himself.  He's said that by the end of September, he had a crush on me, too.  But, I'm a good Baptist and wanted him to take the lead in initiating anything.

    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him?

    About 3 months after we started officially "courdating" he went home with me for my birthday.  I was helping mom in the kitchen and catching up with my aunts.  I heard my little cousins laughing (there are 5 under 5) and looked over to see DH in the floor playing with them, including my cousin with severe special needs.  I knew at the moment I wasn't letting him get away. :)

    4. What was the first date like?

    Hah!  Which one? :)

    The first time we spent time together off campus was November 15, and he took me to see Dark Knight at the Dollar Theatre, at the urging of one of his friends.  Neither of us established if this was a "date," and didn't do anything else except go to the movie.  After we got out, he walked me to my car and asked if I wanted to get coffee after Campus Church the next day.  We met for coffee and talked for about 4 hours...and had a few more 2-3 hour coffees after we got back to school after Thanksgiving Break.

    January 10, 2009 was our first official date.  We had just gotten back to school after Christmas, and he officially asked me to be his girlfriend.  We went to the computer lab to change our fb status and then went to see "Nights in Rodanthe" (because the only other option was HS Musical 3).  We didn't know about www.kids-in-mind.com at the time, and we spent at lot of time admiring the theatre's sconces.

    5. Where did your first kiss take place?

    At the front of the church after his dad pronounced us husband and wife. :)

    6. Dating... local or long distance?

    Dating was local except during school breaks...the last 4 1/2 months of our engagement was LD after he got the Youth Pastor position out here in Kansas, and I was still in Virginia.

    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband?

    Absolutely not!  I'm still learning new things about him every day.

    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating?

    Yes.  They wanted to meet him, so we arranged to make a day trip to my home church (about 1 1/2 hrs from campus), but they trusted me and knew my boundaries and were very supportive.

    9. Do you fart around each other?

    No.

    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating?

    13 months, 4 days.

    11. Long or short engagement?

    16 months was too long. But there really wasn't a way to make it shorter.

    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be?

    We want to take a trip to England and Ireland and take a trip to Israel.

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband?

    His smile.  It still gets me.

    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate?

    Out of all the guys in my life, from high school through college, he is the only one I've known that I can imagine being married to.  Early in our relationship, I realized that I just couldn't imagine having the connection we do with the other guys I'd had crushes on.

    edited December 2011
    1. How did you meet him and how old were you? We first met in junior high.  I don't know when we very first met, but we went to school together for 2 years.  We were not friends, just knew of each other.  He was scared of me.
    Funny story, the first day of Spanish, 7th grade year,  I was sitting in class when this kid came running in 5 or so minutes late.  Senora George laid into him and he was so embarassed.  Several years later H and I were talking about classes, trying to figure out if we'd ever had a class together, and he told me about how he was late to Spanish thefirst day of 7th grade.  Ha!
    2. Was it love at first sight? Far from it.
    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him? That's a REALLY long story.  I'll tell you some other time. 
    4. What was the first date like? Awkward.  It took a while for us to get used to being together, since we were friends first and both dating other people.  I was actually engaged when we first became friends in college.
    5. Where did your first kiss take place? Bowling alley parking lot
    6. Dating... local or long distance? Both.  We grew up 15 minutes apart, so when I was at home for the summers we were local, but when I was at school we were 75-90 minutes apart, so not super long distance but further than just across town.
    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband? I doubt I know *everything*, but I know a lot!
    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating? Yes
    9. Do you fart around each other? Yes
    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating? We started dating April 1, 2000 and got engaged end of Oct/beginning ofNov 2001, so a year and a half.
    11. Long or short engagement? 13 months
    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be? Florence, Italy or London/
    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband? He had his priorities striaght and had goals for his life as well a plan to achieve them.
    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate? No

    1. How did you meet him and how old were you?

    The first time I met FI I was 15 and he was 17. My youth group went on our annual Winter Retreat and he came along with his best friend. He sat right behind me on the charter bus. According to FI he noticed had noticed me the summer before that when he came to some other youth group function

    2. Was it love at first sight?

    I don't think that you can truely be in love with someone at first sight. We were however instantly attracted to each other.

    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him?

    When I went away to college, we lived far enough apart that we didn't see each other very often. Even though we had been in a LDR for over a year already this was the first time we were really tested by it. After that year, I knew that if we were able to get through that year then we would be able to make it through anything else that was thrown at us.

    4. What was the first date like?

    Well we started dating twice. The first time we started going out I wasn't allowed to go anywhere alone with him, so we never had an actual date we mostly just hung out at youth group. The second time, we went to see King Kong together before we were officially dating, we were supposed to be going with friends, but everyone else baled on us after we had gotten to the movie theater. It wasn't really planned as a date when we went.

    Our official first date was to his sister's wedding. I got to meet his entire family all at once!

    5. Where did your first kiss take place?

    I had just been in a play at church and he came up to me while I was gathering my stuff, kissed me really quickly and walked away. We had already been dating for over two months and he was super nervous.

    6. Dating... local or long distance?

    Mostly long distance. We lived in the same city about 8 months. We're been long distance for almost 5 years now, not including Winter Break.

    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband?

    No, and I'm sure when we get married I'll learn even more.

    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating?

    Yes! My parents love him. Apparently my mom was really upset when we broke up although she didn't tell me till we got back together.

    9. Do you fart around each other?

    No

    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating?

    We got engaged right before our 5 year dating anniversary.

    11. Long or short engagement?

    Long! We're doing a 14 month engagement due to school.

    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be?

    We both really want to go to Europe together!

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband?

    Eyes, I'm a sucker for blue eyes and his personality.

    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate?

    I couldn't imagine not being with him.

    1. How did you meet him and how old were you? We attended the same wedding (I was in the wedding) when I was 25.  But we didn't meet until I was 37.
    2. Was it love at first sight?  The day we met I felt that we were meant to be together.  So I wouldn't say love at first sight but there was a definite attraction.
    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him?  I was 36 and I had never met anyone that I could imagine a future with.  Then one of my friends gave him my email address and we started to email each other.  We had a lot in common.  He was funny.  He was so sweet.  I thought that it was too good to be true and figured that when I finally met him, my excitement would be over.  Then I met him and he was as wonderful in person.  We dated for a few months and I realized that I couldn't imagine my life without him in it.  That's when I knew.
    4. What was the first date like?  Having never met, I picked him up from the airport and brought him to the Inner Harbor (Baltimore).  We ate at Johnny Rockets and then went to play games at ESPN Zone.  Our date lasted all day (we came back to the house, played games, had dinner and watched a movie).  It was a great day!
    5. Where did your first kiss take place?  The day we met we were playing a game and I kept looking across the table at him and wanted to kiss him so badly.  But I didn't.  About three weeks later we had gone to my grandmother's house and he came to my bedroom and asked if he could say good-night.  Then he kissed me.  I'm so happy that my first kiss happened at Grandma's house because it is my favorite place to be.
    6. Dating... local or long distance?  LDR from first email through to wedding day.
    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband?   I don't know a lot about his growing up years and learn more about that all of the time (his pets, his friends, memories from school, etc.) but I feel like I know most of who he is today.  That's the thing about having a LDR.  You really learn a lot about someone because you are forced to communicate.  I mean, who wants to be on the phone and just hear each other breathe?  You spend a lot of time communicating and the physical aspect of the relationship is not as important.
    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating?  Yes, they were.  But when I first told my parents about Joe, I was telling them that we had been emailing  for about 6 weeks AND that he was coming to visit.  My mom kept saying, "You're kidding".  After not seeing me date anyone for over 10 years, it was too much for her to take in.
    9. Do you fart around each other?  Yes, but mostly him.  I burp a lot and don't really fart much.  One of the things I love about us is that we can talk to each other about EVERYTHING and we're not ever embarrassed about anything.  There is nothing that would be considered TMI.
    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating?  It was about 20 months.
    11. Long or short engagement?  13 months (too long, IMO)
    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be?   Italy - I think it would be so romantic and he loves italian food.
    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband?  His sense of humor
    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate?  Yes, I truly do.  And he is my best friend.

    xstarx, it's nice to see another international LDR.  As you'll see below, I was also in that camp.
    1. How did you meet him and how old were you?
    In Germany as study abroad students five years ago.  We were both 21.  I was there from the U.S. and he from Brazil.

    No.  Friends at first site, though.  It took some convincing on his part to get me on a date with him.
    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him?
    When he moved from Brazil to be with me here in the US.
    4. What was the first date like?
    We had ice cream in our university town in Germany, which is very old and romantic.  We managed to talk for five hours... in German!

    No.
    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating?
    My parents were a little concerned when they found out I was dating someone from another country.  That is, what would happen to us after studying abroad?  I can understand their concern, but once they learned more about him, I think they realized he was a great guy.
    9. Do you fart around each other?
    No.
    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating?
    Four years, but after 2 years being in the same city.

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband?

    He is who God wanted me to be with.

    1. How did you meet him and how old were you? We met a church- I was 9 and he was 10.

    2. Was it love at first sight? Definitely not. I was not interested in boys at that age. In fact, we went to their house that Christmas and I remember being sad they only had a boy my age!

    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him? One day I just looked at him from accross the crowded room and God told me that one day that 18 year old boy would be my husband. Shortly after that was when God let him in on the secret. that was 5 years ago!

    4. What was your first date like? We never really had a first date. We had spent years together at church and college with a group of people. Eventually the groups just got smaller until it was just him and me.

    5. Where did your first kiss take place? Will be at the alter. I'm a little nervous that 200+ people will be watching, but it was really important to him.

    6. Dating... long distance or local? he's family lives 45 minutes away from mine which can be an expensive drive. But we went to college together for 4 years and church before that, so it really wasn't bad.... just not as often as I would have chosen.

    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband? nope. give me another 60 years and hopefully I'll have it figured out!

    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating? Like I said before, we didn't really "date" or "court" really. But yes, my parents and siblings like him most of the time. My younger brothers and sisters have all gone through a hate stage at some point or another (i think that has to do with me being the first to get married).

    9. Do you fart around each other? I don't think so..

    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating? I guess we were officially a couple for about 2 1/2 years.

    11. Long or short engagment? Short! Since we'd already been waiting 5 years and we were finishing up college, there wasn't a need for  us to wait. It'll be one day less than 6 months.

    12. if you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would it be? too many places... maybe Nepal for his friend's wedding, whenever that may be.

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband? He is always serving others! One evening we were at a church function following his soccer game in which he twisted his ankle. I was "busy" holding a baby and my injured boy went outside to get a drink for me from the cooler!

    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate? I believe God made us to compliment each other and work together for His glory. So yes.

    Trust me...you won't even notice them at the church.  I didn't realize people were watching us kiss until they started clinking their stupid glasses at the reception every 2 minutes.  BIL would wait until one or both of us had JUST taken a bite of food, and then clink until we could kiss.  Bless his heart.

    5 Love Its First Comment
    edited December 2011

    1. How did you meet him and how old were you?
    We met through our moms. His mom started teaching with my mom and all the teachers' kids were forced to get together for Christmas parties, end of the year dinners, etc. I met FI at a Christmas party when I was 11 and he was 13!

    2. Was it love at first sight?
    I'm not sure. We both agreed (later) that we thought the other was "cute". The more and more I talked to him, the more I liked him.

    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him?
    I know it's cheesy but I just knew. Even if we just had a big fight (happened a lot in our early years-- we blame LDR), I could never bring myself to end it with him. I always knew in the back of my head that he was a great guy, he treated me right, and that I would never find anyone who compared to him. He asked me to marry him October 14 of 2006 or 2007, without a ring. He just told me he wanted to marry me-- from then on we were set and knew that each other was for sure "the one". On October 14, 2010, he proposed for real.  

    4. What was your first date like?
    We never really "dated". We were always just "together". We did go to the movies a lot!

    5. Where did your first kiss take place?
    In the parking lot of a mall!! It was a terrible kiss (teeth bumping, sloppy, etc) but we were both thrilled!

    6. Dating... long distance or local?
    We did both. We did LDR for a year, then we were local for 3 years, then we did LDR for a year and half again (I went away to college). LDR was awful for us. I'm surprised we made it through. Thank God we did.

    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband?
    I wouldn't say I know "everything", but he's my best friend and I've grown up with him.. so, I certainly know a "ton" about him!

    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating?
    For the most part. My parents know he's a good guy. He's just pretty shy around them, even after all these years. But honestly, my parents wouldn't think anyone was "good enough" for me. That's a whole other issue... *sigh*

    9. Do you fart around each other?
    Of course.. and burp, and snore, and go #2, and throw up, etc.. No secrets after all these years. PLUS, how am I ever going to NOT fart in front of him for the next 50 years? We're open with each other and never ever embarassed.

    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating?
    We started dating December 22, 2005 and got engaged October 14, 2010. :)

    11. Long or short engagment?
    WAY TOO LONG. But we are happy with it now (even though we'd just like to be married) given the economy!

    12. if you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would it be?
    I want to go to England and Finland with him! England is my favorite country and his whole family is from Finland, but he's never been. We'd also love to visit Japan.

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband?
    I could go on forever, but I'll keep it short: his sense of humor and wit. He's as sharp as a knife and is hilarious!

    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate?
    I couldn't imagine spending my life with anyone else!

    1. How did you meet him and how old were you?
    We went to a small bible college where everyone knew each other and so we saw each other a lot. I'm not sure of when we actually met. I was 18 and he was 22.

    2. Was it love at first sight?
    Not at all!! For a couple of months, he thought I was someone else

    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him? 
    I'm not sure. I just felt like this was who God had for me.

    4. What was the first date like?
    Our first "date" was awful. We went with a group of friends to bowling alley and he actually paid for me and another person. Then we went with another couple to see a movie after we had started dating. Again, awkward.

    5. Where did your first kiss take place?
    My parents' back porch after he proposed. It was pure bliss.

    6. Dating... local or long distance?
    For the first 6months we were at the same college. Then he took a job in Thomasville GA for the summer and I took a summer job in Fort Lauderdale. Then we both moved back to the Orlando area where we were a hour apart during the engagement.

    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband?
    Not at all. We are learning new things about each other all the time.

    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating?
    Yes but the engagement, they were a little nervous about.

    9. Do you fart around each other?
    I got sick last Christmas where and so needless to say he's seen it all. And we have become just that comfortable around eachother.

    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating?
    8months

    11. Long or short engagement?
    Probably on the shorter side 10months and 4days

    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be?
    I would love to visit all of the Disney theme parks. DH would love to go to Ireland or the Great Barrier Reef to scuba dive

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband?
    His smile and the fact that he is a nerd.

    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate?
    I don't like the word soulmate. I believe he who God wants me to be with and He has proven that many times.

    1. How did you meet him and how old were you?

    We met through a mutual friend and played basketball together - I think I was 25 or 26, and DH is three years younger than me.

    2. Was it love at first sight?

    Nope. But we were certainly friends with each other.

    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him?

    God told me. I was sitting at the counter one day, and God said that I could trust Matt. (I had an EXTREMELY hard time trusting guys before him.)

    4. What was the first date like?

    We watched a movie and ate dinner at my place. I realized that night how similar we were when we had the same reactions to the movie at the same time.

    5. Where did your first kiss take place?

    My living room couch. He had kissed me a couple of times on the cheek, but I had never been kissed before. So when I was (finally) ready, I asked him to kiss me one night before he went home. He double-checked to make sure I was serious....so sweet!

    6. Dating... local or long distance?

    He asked me out AFTER he left the Valley, so long distance - about three and a half hours apart.

    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband?

    Not by a long shot. But I learn more and more about him all the time. :)

    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating?

    Yeah, I think so. I was 27, so I didn't need their approval. DH's parents loved me from the very start. :D

    9. Do you fart around each other?

    Sure. Better out than in. ;)

    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating?

    He proposed the day after our ten month anniversary.

    11. Long or short engagement?

    Six months. I guess most people consider that short...

    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be?

    I don't know. We're both kinda home-bodies. Europe maybe?

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband?

    How patient he was (and is) with me. Every major step we took, he waited to make sure I was ready first.

    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate?
    Yes. I believe he is the one God has chosen for me to spend my life with. I can't imagine my life without him.

    11. Long or short engagement? 12 months almost to the day (starting to wish it was shorter now though)

    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be? As long as he is with me- I don't care. We love to travel and have fun together.

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband? His smile, his outgoing personality, his confidence, his intellect.

    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate? I truly believe he is who God has planned for me.

    1. How did you meet him and how old were you?
    We "met" on Facebook, but he came to my house and met my mom and sister and picked me up in his truck and we went back to his house where his mom was cutting the grass.  :P  It was September 18, 2009 - I was 17, DH was 18.  :)
    2. Was it love at first sight?If that's what you call it lol.  We definitely clicked and never fell apart.  :)
    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him?
    The way he took care of me and the way I finally "fit" in a family.
    4. What was the first date like?
    We went to his house, he fixed his dad's truck.  We rode the four-wheeler and I jumped on his back where he proceeded to play with my knee while holding me up FOREVER lol.  We talked for a long time and it was freezing - we were both shivering.  He offered me his hoodie but I refused (now I just take it. :P) and eventually we went inside to watch some tv and warm up.  We talked and our faces were close and finally our noses were touching - he kissed me really quick on the lips then apologized ALL over himself until I told him it was ok and made him try again.  The ride home I sat in the middle of the seat in his truck and he sang to me and had his right arm around me the whole way home.  :)
    5. Where did your first kiss take place?
    His couch at his old house.  :P
    6. Dating... local or long distance?
    Local - thank goodness!!
    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband?
    Yes ma'am.  :)  We can't keep anything from the other one, even eating out.  We just don't see the need to. 
    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating?
    Yes.  My sister and mom met him and within 30 seconds said, "If you break up with this one we'll disown you and adopt him."  And his mom and I are super close, and his dad is the best - I'm the daughter he never REALLY had.  :)
    9. Do you fart around each other?
    Not unless we're asleep.  We've never been big farters around people.  :P  But we do burp.
    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating?
    September 18, 2009 - June 27, 2010 : so 9 months, 9 days.  :)
    11. Long or short engagement?
    June 27, 2010 - May 1, 2011 :  I'd say pretty short. 
    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be?
    Someplace with horses, LOTS of acreage, sunset, cows, dogs, and not a place in sight.  :)  Just us and nature, in our jeans, t-shirts, and boots.
    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband?

    His voice, his sense of humor, he was cute, country boy, great parents, caring, loving - I'll just stop now lol.
    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate?
    Without a doubt in my mind.  He's definitely everything I'm not, and everything I need.  :)

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: survey about FI/DH :) : Wow you two were all over! Did you have a long engagement cuza travelling/visas? What did your mom say when you got engaged? Mine "joked" that if we got married, we had to live in the US! (i'm certain there's some truth to that lol)
    Posted by xstarx05x[/QUOTE]

    <div>We had a long engagement mostly because of DH's school.  He's in grad school up in Boston, and we had a choice of Christmas or May.  I didn't like the idea of having a wedding in winter (and I was going to be swamped with law school applications), so we postponed until May.  </div><div>
    </div><div>My mom was very happy when she learned of the engagement.  DH asked my parents for permission and their blessing first, and they happily gave it.  My mom really wants me to stay in the U.S. (and move back to California), and I don't think she is particularly worried at this point about us moving to Brazil.  I don't really want to live there because I can't speak Portuguese.  And we're at least stuck here for now due to grad school.  </div><div>
    </div><div>But when we started dating... that was a different story.  My parents were a bit concerned, because I only told them about DH when he went back to Brazil after the program was over and both of us were heartbroken.  The challenges of long distance seemed insurmountable then, and I think they were a tad concerned how hurt we both seemed (but they also realized we were hurt because we cared for each so much).  It's amazing that we got through that.</div><div>
    </div><div>What's your story?</div>

    5 Love Its First Anniversary Combo Breaker First Comment
    edited December 2011
    1. How did you meet him and how old were you? We were both out with friends one night and I was with my best friend who went to high school with him and she introduced us. I knew almost everyone he was with since I worked with a few of his friends and knew people through my best friend, but had never met DH.

    2. Was it love at first sight? I don't believe in love at first sight as I believe you need to know someone to be "in love", but DH liked me from the moment he saw me. I wasn't interested in a relationship at the time since it had only been a few months since I had gotten out of a really bad relationship.

    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him?I just had that amazing feeling when we started getting serious that he was the one. He was so different than any other guy I've known. I know it sounds cliche, but it's so true.

    4. What was the first date like? We went minigolfing and then back to my apartment and watched a movie. I originally had this nice evening planned of going downtown and getting some food and drinks and taking a walk along the river, but his stomach had been acting up all day so we didn't want to chance it by going out to eat and drink. But we still had so much fun, and it was awesome how there was never any awkward silence and everything just flowed.

    5. Where did your first kiss take place? At my apartment after our 2nd date.. I still remember how nervous I was since I knew I liked him so much, but had just been through something so awful.

    6. Dating... local or long distance? Local

    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband? Yes, we truely are best friends. I can be completely myself around him and open up to him about anything and he's the same with me.

    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating? My parents were worried since they knew I had just gotten out of a 3 year abusive relationship and they weren't ready to welcome a new guy in to the family with open arms, but after meeting him a few times they could see how kind and gentle DH was with me and how different he was than guys in the past.

    9. Do you fart around each other? Haha.. yes! I used to think that would never happen, but we're so comfortable around each other, and it's only human. Everyone does it, why hide it from the one person who shares everything with you. If you can't do it in your own home, where can you?! Also, we don't like to use the word "fart" it sounds dirty, I taught DH to say "boof" instead.

    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating? 8 months! But then we had a 16 month engagement.

    11. Long or short engagement? Loooong

    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be? Our HM to Fiji was incredible, next on our list is Europe.

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband? How different he was.. how kind and humble he was and how he was such a gentleman to me and not a "typical guy".

    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate? I'm not sure if I believe in soulmates, but I do believe he's perfect for me and I didn't compromise a thing with him.

    1. How did you meet him and how old were you? We kind of met at my sister's wedding - he was an usher.  We met for real a year later at my sister and bro-in-law's graduation party.  Through circumstances in the next month or so, we started talking on facebook, and then texting, and now here we are :) When we started talking I was 24 and he was 23.

    2. Was it love at first sight? I don't really believe in love at first sight, we liked each other quickly though.

    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him? He claims he knew after our first date, after we had been dating a month he mentioned saving up for a ring.  It took me a few months of praying and spending time with him, and the knowledge just sort of crept up on me.

    4. What was the first date like? He picked me up at my grandpa's cottage and we went to a state park and had a dessert picnic by the water.  We sat and talked for 2 hours, and any silences weren't awkward.  Then he came back to the cottage with me and hung out with my slightly crazy family for another hour before going home.

    5. Where did your first kiss take place? At my apartment a week after becoming an official couple

    6. Dating... local or long distance? Somewhat long distance - we live an hour and 15 minutes apart, so we spend weekends together but it's too far to see each other daily.

    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband? I know a lot, we talk a lot due to the distance, but everything?  no.

    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating? Very supportive - they love FI!

    9. Do you fart around each other? He does, I sometimes do accidently.

    10. How long was it till you got engaged after you started dating? 9 months

    11. Long or short engagement? 1 year and 6 days

    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be? I'd say Europe.

    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband? How we could talk or be silent and it was just as comfortable.  Neither of us is a hugely talkative person, so comfortable silence is important to both of us.

    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate? I don't know if I believe in soulmates, but he is who I'm supposed to spend the rest of my life with.

    1. How did you meet him and how old were you?
    At work and we were both 23 (I was almost 24).
    2. Was it love at first sight?
    I don't know, but I know I was very attracted to him and could see myself falling in love with him. 
    3. How did you know you were supposed to marry him?
    I  can't explain it. I just knew. I do believe that God placed us in each other's lives to become husband and wife. 
    4. What was the first date like?
    At a restaurant near where we work. I was really excited and it went very well!
    5. Where did your first kiss take place?
    Haha. In the parking lot of one of the schools in our district. He was dropping me off at my car after a date. 
    6. Dating... local or long distance?
    Local. 
    7. Do you know everything there is to know about your husband?
    Pretty much. I think we all can discover new and exciting things about each other every day, but we have both shared our beliefs, morals, interests, future hopes, past experiences, etc. 
    8. Were your parents supportive of you when you started dating?
    Absolutely! They loved Ryan from the very start. They both said they knew he was the one from the moment they met him. 
    9. Do you fart around each other?
    Ew. No.

    1 year and 8 months and 1 day. Haha.

    We were engaged for 364 days. One day shy of a year. I consider that to be an "average length" engagement. 
    12. If you could go one place with him anywhere in the world where would that be?
    Hmmm. I think anywhere we go would be amazing! I'd like to see Greece/Greek Isles. I love cruises and he has never been on one, so that would be fun too! We would love to go on the K*Love cruise but it's in the winter every year and it would be hard to get off work! 
    13. What was one of the things that attracted you to your husband?
    Initially, his looks. After I talked to him, it was his kind heart, sense of humor and work ethic. Among many other things! He's wonderful! 
    14. Do you believe he is your soulmate?
    Yes! I believe God gave us each other and made us fit together perfectly.
