Ok...so I know this has been done before in the wonderful world of PS but I didn''t want to reopen an old thread since I think there are constantly new generations of LIWs. This can kind of be like a get-to-know-you quiz. You know, like the ones you got via mass e-mail every week in high school! I''ll try and keep the questions LIW-related and I know the questions have been answered in random threads but it would be neat to have all of the info in one place! Cut and paste the ?s then fill in your answers. Feel free to add questions along the way!

1) How did you find PS?

2) How did you meet your SO?

3) How long have you and your SO been dating?

4) In 10 words or less, describe your dream e-ring.

5) What is your favourite activity to do with your SO?

6) What is your ring finger size?

7) Do you and your SO have a song? If so, what is it?

8) What''s your favourite meal to make your SO (or vice versa)?

9) If you could pick ONE PSer''s ring to be ''inspired by,'' who would it be? (Tell us about the ring too!)

10) If you combined your name with your SO''s name, what would your ''team name'' be?

Great idea! I was just thinking about something like this the other day as the old thread like this went away a long time ago....

1) How did you find PS?
Google searching for my late obsession with the Novo

2) How did you meet your SO?
It's a long story which I have talked about before on here. I'll try to keep it short....July 1998...we were both just going to turn 17. It was online (by total accident on both ends with NO intentions of finding a 'mate' so it wasn't one of those dating services or anything like that) talking in a chat room about the Super Bowl of the Broncos vs. Packers in '98 (because I live in Denver and was a fan and SO was in Minnesota, his best friend was a huge Packers fan.) The Packers lost that game so he just had to say hello to me while we disucssed how horrible the Packers were lol! Then we got to talking more and more and found out we had so much in common it was madness. We fell in love! Spent the first year apart while in high school we talked daily online, wrote emails, talked on the phone. (We both have printed every email we wrote to each other and I have a book I have them all in) It's like a wonderful love story of the beginning of our relationship. After graduating high school, he moved out here to be with me! I believe in true love and feel it was meant to be. Destiny! It was quite romantic really...


3) How long have you and your SO been dating?
Just over 10.5 years (first year LDR)

4) In 10 words or less, describe your dream e-ring.
Tiffany, Round (alone or with tapered baguettes), 1ct+, platinum


5) What is your favourite activity to do with your SO?
Nothing at all. It's so much fun! And driving around looking at dream homes....

6) What is your ring finger size?
5.5

7) Do you and your SO have a song? If so, what is it?
Kiss from a Rose- Seal. He gave me the CD single and it was the first thing he ever gave me...

8) What's your favourite meal to make your SO (or vice versa)?
I love making him eggs over easy. I know it's not a 'meal' but he lovesssss them! And I adore watching him eat them. He eats all around the yolk and once everything else is gone, he lets the whole yolk in his mouth for the final taste. lol too adorable!

9) If you could pick ONE PSer's ring to be 'inspired by,' who would it be? (Tell us about the ring too!)
That's a tough one. There are far too many that are gorgeous! But I'm going to say Bia's ring. And while it's stunning and gorgeous, the reason I am inspired by it is isn't because of the ring but because of how long she was with her boyfriend before he proposed and he did such an amazing job by himself choosing that stunner, that it gives me HOPE and faith in my guy that he will do an amazing job as well!


10) If you combined your name with your SO's name, what would your 'team name' be?
I have no idea how to put our names together for that lol

1) How did you find PS?

I honestly don''t remember now. I was either whining about "Should we get married?" or looking up rings.

2) How did you meet your SO?

We met at a Halloween party on my 23rd birthday. We were both very drunk, and had some fun, and then never were apart again!

3) How long have you and your SO been dating?

Just hit 3 years.

4) In 10 words or less, describe your dream e-ring.

It''s sitting in the safe deposit box right now.

6) What is your ring finger size?
6 1/4

7) Do you and your SO have a song? If so, what is it?

Nope. I just asked him if we did, because I couldn''t remember. He thought I said "sauna" so he said "Yes, we have 2" and then I said "Really? What are they?" and he thought I said "where are they?" so he said "Right when you walk in the clubhouse and go to the right.." So I cut him off and say "Baby? Do we have a SONG!?" he just smiled. "Oh... song. I couldnt see your mouth moving. I thought you said sauna."


8) What''s your favourite meal to make your SO (or vice versa)?

I don''t cook. I make reservations. He likes to make a lot of things... nothing in particular.

Ohhh... I forget who has it, but I saw it recently and it was a Mark Morrell Petite torchiere. LOVE that ring.

Great Idea Sammyj!

Here''s mine...

1) How did you find PS? I was googling different ring settings and PS came up for MOST of them.

2) How did you meet your SO? We were in the same math class first semester of our freshman year of college. Curiously the ONLY class we''ve ever had together that he transferred into the second week of classes after drop/add week.

3) How long have you and your SO been dating? 3 years, 3 months, 1 week, 4 days....haha

4) In 10 words or less, describe your dream e-ring: Simple, Solitaire, Unique Head, knife-edge thin band, platinum, Leon...

5) What is your favourite activity to do with your SO? Watching our shows on the couch cuddled up, shooting at the range, and lately, flying!

6) What is your ring finger size? 5 1/2-3/4

7) Do you and your SO have a song? If so, what is it? Not really, but many lovey country songs fit the bill and describe us perfectly.

8) What''s your favourite meal to make your SO (or vice versa)? Filet mignon, double baked potatoes with sour cream, cheese, bacon, and chives, fresh rolls, caesar salad and ice cream or cheesecake for dessert. Yums.

9) If you could pick ONE PSer''s ring to be ''inspired by,'' who would it be? (Tell us about the ring too!) Just one is impossible!! One for each taste... I definitely love Surfgirl''s ring for an antique, Coatimundi''s James Meyer or Elle_Chris for a bezel. My DREAM Leon is in my head only, a variation of one in the catalog which I don''t believe is owned by anyone on PS. I''ll attach a photo. I''d love it for this ring to be made with a plain knife-edged shank of 1.5-2mm with a matching band. Stacking bands to come later.... SWOON!
Linky to Leon: http://www.artofplatinum.com/4images/details.php?image_id=408

10) If you combined your name with your SO''s name, what would your ''team name'' be? Dunno.....once we get married well have the same last name and share the same first initial so probably that??

1) How did you find PS? I was googling Tiffany Legacy Rings and believe it or not the PS user who had a replica made from Texas jeweler came up - even though a couple users have the real deal! Of course, in true LIW fashion I''m not too into the Legacy anymore



2) How did you meet your SO? My best girlfriend and I were looking for something to do one night. There were local fireworks for the independence weekend about 40 minutes from us and one of our mutual friend and some of his guy friends from high school were planning on making a night of it. I was dating a guy at the time and last minute decided NOT to invite him just because I wanted to have a stress free relaxing night. SO was home on a fluke because he was taking summer classes in VA (we''re from NJ) and hadn''t planned on coming home for the weekend. We met and he got a little tipsy and asked me to dance to billy joel in the parking lot! We did and he held my hand for the rest of the night
Total stroke of luck on so many levels!



3) How long have you and your SO been dating? 2 years 7 months and 8 days


4) In 10 words or less, describe your dream e-ring. Hmm.. antique inspired, delicate, sparkly - Ideal Cut! (crosses fingers)



5) What is your favorite activity to do with your SO? There are a lot - I suppose my most favorite is to lay in his arms and watch a good movie after a long day.


6) What is your ring finger size? 5.5


7) Do you and your SO have a song? If so, what is it? No but he tends to get pop songs stuck in his head. He goes around singing a line or two from the same song for about a month in a high voice. It ALWAYS gets stuck in my head. I have 2.5 years of the most annoying pop songs that remind me of SO and I love it.


8) What''s your favorite meal to make your SO (or vice versa)? Scrabbled eggs with potato bread toast (nice and buttered) and juicy bacon (We love breakfast!)


9) If you could pick ONE PSer''s ring to be ''inspired by,'' who would it be? (Tell us about the ring too!) Hmm - I think Musey''s is my favorite. I love the ring detailing and its just so appealing to the eye! What a ring



10) If you combined your name with your SO''s name, what would your ''team name'' be? Trarine - sounds like a tool or utensil.. GO USE THE TRARINE!
