Fiance(e`)'s Name (first and LJ name): Manuel.  He doesn't have one
Fiance(e`)'s Age: 23
Where is he/she from? Moreno Valley, CA
How long have you been together? 2 years, 2 months
How did you meet? Lol, funny story.  I found him on MySpace.  He was actually at the same NROTC battalion as me.  He was one of the few people from SoCal attending a college in VA.  I met him in person at our Marine Corps B-day Ball.
When did you get engaged? December 25, 2006
How? He came over on Christmas day to pick me up and head over to his grandparents.  He handed me this heavy present and insisted I open it.  I sat down and opened it.  To my surprise, there was the ring sitting in the ring box  among a bunch of aquarium stones.  I was so speechless and he said "Will you marry me?"  I uttered yes...still in shock :)
When are you getting married? August 29, 2009
Would you like to be included on our wedding dates list? Nah
What is your biggest challenge as a couple? The distance.  He's currently in NY going through some naval training.  He's a submariner so deployments are not going to be fun.  So far, we've been apart for 9 months and although some days are harder than others, counting down the days until he's here in San Diego with me permanently is exciting :).
