    FI and I met our birthday weekend in Atlantic City, NJ on 7/10/10 we were both celebrating our bday and had mutual friends that met at Harrah's Pool. Once all were introduced was when we discovered we both had turned 26 that Wednesday! We talked the entire night and found out we where the same height literally drove the same truck but in different colors, had the same cell phone and lived 10min from each other. We have been together ever since. We dated exactly one year before he proposed to me. Our date is 8/27/11, which was our 1 year anniversay.

     how did you and your fiance meet?
    We met online approximately 12 years ago. I wasn't even in high school yet. We maintained an online friendship until 2009 - when I decided to fly to Omaha, NE (From Ohio) to meet him. I was dating someone else at the time - but meeting him - something sparked - and thus began my whirlwind of dumping the guy I had been with for 4 years - for my best friend of 12.

     how long did you and your fiance date prior to getting engaged? Almost two years.

    what is the date of your engagement?  August 21st.

    Yup! Graduated in 2009, been working at a biglaw firm since Jan 2010 :) How about you? I hope you are doing something more meaningful with your law degree!

    i graduated in 2010 and started at my firm right after the bar exam :) it's a small boutique firm and i have to guess extremely different from big law!! not sure if it is necessarily any more meaningful than biglaw, but i am happy, so i guess that counts for somthing...getting on theknot is such a good way to waste time when i don't feel like billing!!

    how did you and your fiance meet? 
    My friend and I got invited to a party at the lake (I knew a total of maybe 4 people there), and that was the first night I met FI, but it was brief. I actually liked his friend that night, and we exchanged numbers. The friend invited me to a birthday party a week later, and ignored me the whole night. FI and I spent the night talking and clicked right away (I found out later he was distracting me while his friend made out with two girls. Ya...)
    I knew I wanted to date him but felt like I had to tread lightly so as not to affect his friendship, so I devised a plan and asked FI for "guitar lessons". I planned to move slowly, be friends for a while, and then see where it goes, but that didn't happen. Within a week of the birthday party he was my boyfriend. His friend got a little weird about it (even though nothing EVER happened - not even a date or a kiss), but he isn't really a good friend anyways so they kind of naturally drifted apart.

    how long did you and your fiance date prior to getting engaged?  
    We moved fast. Said I love you in 2 months, moved in at 10 months, engaged at a year and a half. My roommates actually said within the first month of us dating that they thought we were gonna get married haha

    what is the date of your engagement?
    April 12, 2011, three days after my birthday! I expected it on my birthday so he threw me off. FI had planned to wait until after my graduation (a week later), but when he bought the ring he lasted until getting home before deciding he was going to do it right away. So impulsive haha

    how did you and your fiance meet? In High School. We met freshman year, he was actually in one of my moms classes (shes a TA) and she kept talking about him, plus we had a lot of mutual friends. We liked each other then but were too chicken to do anything about it. I did used to stalk him a little at his job at a bowling alley. Then, right at the end of our junior year he asked me out to a dance. We went and I fell in love. We didn't officially start "dating" until July of that year and we never looked back!

    How did you and your fiance meet? Online. He sent me a copy/pasted letter that he sent to girls he thought were cute, so I messaged him back calling him out on it, then we started messaging back and forth, texting back and forth and then video chatting back and forth. After our first date we were pretty much inseperable.

    How long did you and your fiance date prior to getting engaged? 8 or 9 months. I still can't remember when we first officially started talking. I know I agreed to be his girlfriend on August 14th though.

    What is the date of your engagement? We got engaged on April 17th, which was Palm Sunday at church, and also happens to be my little brothers birthday which my fiance didn't realize until after the fact.
