Hey there! First off, I am a return Bee! I first created my Weddingbee account in 2010 when I was was embarking on my first marriage. Very sadly, my marriage fell apart just a few short and tumultuous years in and I was finally divorced (after a two-year separation) at the end of 2016. All the warning signs had been there long before the engagement, but I chose to ignore them. Tip for younger bees: NEVER ignore those feelings. That's all I'm going to say. The happy news: I'm back! After a healthy period of mourning, followed by the emotional rollercoaster that is navigating the horrors of modern dating (OMG, have things changed!), and after having nearly giving up entirely on a second chance at love, I met a really awesome guy. So awesome, in fact, that after a year of dating, a few months living together, and many conversations about our future, I am currently a "waiting" Bee. We picked out my ring together and he bought it right in front of me... I am just waiting for him to formally ask! I contemplated creating an all new account as I start into planning this next chapter of my life, but then I thought: no; I want other Bees to know that there is hope beyond divorce and that you can, in fact, have a new love story in your mid-30s. Never give up on love, Bees.
