Let's Take it Slow
Sorry I've been missing in action for a couple of weeks. Where does the time go?
Speaking of time, the Husband and I have been invited to a wedding this weekend.
This will be the first wedding we will attend since our own, over two years ago!
We're friends of the groom, and the funny thing is, two years ago he came to our wedding with his serious girlfriend.
We really thought they were on the verge of getting engaged. We kept waiting for the announcement. We liked her more than the girlfriend he'd had before her - whom he'd actually proposed to, and had been engaged to for several months before she broke it off.
Anyway, the girl he's marrying this weekend is yet a third girl. We haven't met her yet. We're not sure if any of his close friends have, actually.
So to recap - he was engaged to girl #1 about 3 years ago. Then she broke it off, he met girl #2 and became serious with her, and brought her as his date to our wedding.
Then about a year after our wedding (last summer) things ended with girl #2 and in that time, he met girl #3, proposed to her, and planned a wedding.
I'm frankly enormously impressed at their ability to meet, court, get engaged and get a wedding planned in under a year!
We're really hoping the third time is the charm. #
worked for me
I have an even better story. One of my buddies took me ring shopping with him and picked out a ring for the girl he was seeing. Then they broke up before he could propose to her. A year later he proposed to another girl with the same ring. They've now been married 5 years, and I don't know if he ever told her that ring was originally for another girl.

I've had two girlfriends meet, court and get married in 6 months. Needless to say, the weddings were ueber basic affairs. heck two and a half years later and I don't even have a ring on my finger ... maybe I'm doing something wrong ... lol
A friend of mine married his (now) wife last weekend, which happened to be one year exactly to the day they met one another at a church singles meetup. When the right one comes along, you'll know it (I guess). :)
I bet she is the charm!
