Laura & Russell

Hi there! My name is Laura and this is going to be my wedding blog, so sit back, relax and join me in my bridely adventures into the mysterious land of MRSdom!

I believe I will start by telling you how Russell and I started.

I had just started my freshman year in college, and I was in an art history class, waiting for it to start and surfing the net on my laptop. Long story short… I was on a dating site. Honestly, I wasn’t really expecting anything, but I got an email saying that someone had viewed my profile, and wanted to know if we could exchange email addresses. I went on the site, checked out his profile, and I was pleasantly suprised. His interests were much different than the typical guys on there, and I was intrigued so I went ahead and gave him my email address.

Apparently he was online at the same time, he sent me an email pretty quickly. We decided that since we were both online, to exchange IM names. We started chatting… and didn’t stop. It was so weird because it was like we had known each other our whole lives, and talking to him was so easy. This was really weird for me because I didn’t really expect anything to become of a dating site. One of us suggested that we talk on the phone after we had been talking for hours and he gave me his number so I could block my number if I wanted to be extra careful. I called, we talked, we laughed well into the night, wrapping up with a decision to meet the next night for a movie. It truly felt like I had known him forever and the connection was instant.

On our first date, he was (and still is!) the perfect gentleman, opening doors, paid for dinner, the movie, was extremely well mannered. He was shy, sweet, sincere, a wonderful conversationalist, dorky in just the right way… I was HOOKED!!

That was four years ago… five by the time we’re married this October. Over the last few years, we have been through a LOT together. We’ve grown closer than close and became best friends. We’re hardcore film critics, we love politics and current events, we’re big into all types of music, we are passionate about art, videogames, japanese culture, and especially… each other! 🙂

He took me ring shopping at the end of June, and proposed November 30th, right after Thanksgiving. The rest is and will be history. 🙂

Did you meet your sweetie online? What made him stand out from the other fishies? More to come soon! -Laura

Aww! I love reading “how we met” stories! So sweet!

FI and I actually worked at the same place for a couple of years before beginning our relationship. Things finally got started for us when I joined a running group that he was a part of. I’d say his sweet/kind nature, sense of humor (and slight dorkiness!) are what first hooked me. :o)
