How long have you been together?
We'll have been dating two years beginning of June. We met end of May, but we say our "official" start time was June 4th. (It's easier for him to remember...ROFL)

How did you meet?
Due to happenstance, he ended up being the roommate of a friend of mine I met in class. Over the summer my friend and I were getting together to go see a movie, and my friend invited him to come along spur of the moment. (Or she may have planned it, as I think she was trying to set us up...) My friend ditched us at the theater to go chat with one of her on again/off again friends with benefits guy, so we got to talk a bit before the movie started. A week or two later we were officially dating.

What are his best traits?
He is just such a great guy. I really like that while he's a bit on the reserved side like me, he can be a complete and total goof that brings out my more outgoing side. He's a gentleman, hard working, intelligent, caring...I'd trust him with my life and I can't say that about many people.

If you are a picture sharer whats your S/O look like?
During the 18 hour car drive to Florida:

Picture I snapped of him when we first started dating (he was watching Sponge Bob...thus the zoned out look LOL):

This is a picture of a picture, so excuse the funny lines, but this was him in our informal 2011 family-Christmas-morning picture (Cynder was invited, too):

^ I hadn't seen him without some form of facial hair up until this point, and when I walked into his apartment to pick him up I almost didn't recognize him. LOL

How did you meet?
He is a friend of my dads and we met through him. We knew each other
for 7 yrs or so before I caught him!

What are there best traits?
He see's the real me. Not the public personna , or even the Family one , but
the real me I am at my soul. We are so in tune , we can have whole conversations at a glance.
He truely cares for the kids and wants to be a great Dad for them . He can clothes shop for me and be right in my taste AND size ,
and for a fat girl that is priceless. lol He looks gruff , but that is the outside , the real him is spectacular.
He is even all hairy , I love that . So so so manly and just so Italian. lol

If you are a picture sharer whats your S/O look like?

I think this one is from December. I begged for it. He hates having his pic taken.

And this one also

This is the most recent , last week , or maybe the one before.

I have one of us from when we got married last April, but Eric hates it because it makes him look fat LOL. Because we got married quickly (we were engaged and never planned on a big wedding, but we ended up getting married at the courthouse because we had to be for me to be on his health insurance), we didn't have any type of reception/party for friends/family. So, we're having it this May and my mom is like "I have NO pictures of you guys to put out!" LOL. Ooh well!

It'll be 6 years this summer, and we met at my 21st birthday party. He came into my job previous to that and I raved to my roommate how hot I thought he was, and so my roommate wing man'd and invited him to my party. I don't know how to describe best traits, since we just work really well together. We have no shared interests, but he's supportive of all my dog nonsense and other foibles. He's also real weird, and that's all I could really hope for.

He sits through my 10 hour tattoo appointments:

And he does my hair:

Girl can't complain.

Sense of humor. He can still surprise me into laughing almost daily if not more. I treasure that.

Roy and I have been together almost 5 years now, and our 2 year wedding anniversary is coming up on April 2nd also.

We met while working at the same YMCA and I gave him my number. We had instant electricity and I still remember the first moment he looked into my eyes. It was so intense, so personal-he called it love at first sight.

We are very different people but somehow work well together. We come from fairly different backgrounds and the early years of our relationship had a lot of growing pains. But he gets me. He's one of the few people that knows the real me and loves me the way I am. He's funny and smart and weird. Plus he loves Henry.

It also doesn't hurt that he's handsome

This one's just funny. Not sure what's going on.

Mine HATES his pic taken so I did really have that many of him either

We met at work

We've been together for about 6 yrs or so.

I like all the fun we have together, how he understands my ADHD-ness (pretty well for a 'normie' lol) I like how we can communicate with just a look & have the same sense of humor

Zach and I have been together since October 7.5 years or so. We'll celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary in June

We met in college--we were the exact same (super small) double major in the business school, so we had zillions of classes together. I invited him over to study, then I invited myself to go grocery shopping with him (he had a car), then I invited myself to his apartment to bake cookies, and then he FINALLY got the hint that I liked him and invited me to a party. Oyyy...the good news is I don't ever have to worry about him being seduced by another woman, 'cause he'd have no clue he was being hit on

The best part of him is the way we make each other better people. We balance each other, encourage each other, and push each other to reach our full potential. He encouraged me to go back to school, refocuses me when I get too stressed over something small, and shares my joys and frustrations equally. Plus, he's super cute and amazingly witty. He makes me laugh constantly Marriage is the best thing ever when you're with the right person.

In college, after we'd been dating a year:

Our engagement photo, senior year of college:

Wedding day! We rented a convertible instead of a limo--best decision ever:

Family photo! I had this printed on a canvas and it's hung in my living room:

And a recent one...this was a few weeks ago, tailgating for a Maryland basketball game:

How long have you been together?

2 Years on May 17th
How did you meet?
My Ex (a friend of my SO) introduced us. We really didn't want it to work out, because that would make my ex extremly happy. Unfortunatly, it worked.
What are their best traits?
He just gets me - he puts up with my craziness. He is there when I'm happy, but he's also there for me when I'm pissed, or sad.
If you are a picture sharer whats your S/O look like?
Ill have to post one later.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.
