A Bristlr Success Story – Jenna & Chad

jenna-chad-cover

Did you know that on average Bristlr causes at least one wedding (that we know of) per month? Totally legitimate statistics for you right there!

This month we’re both proud and delighted to announce the engagement of Jenna & Chad! Congratulations!

In a twist on our success stories, Jenna’s best friend Katy approached us with the story. So, surprise Jenna! You’re on Bristlr again!

In fact, it’s thanks to Katy that Jenna found her way on to Bristlr:

I made her Bristlr profile for her as a joke – I made her profile exactly what I thought people with beards would love “oh I love tacos, I love whiskey, I love biking…” and it really attracted these bearded guys!

It’s great when jokes turn in to amazing things, right (remember how Bristlr itself started out as a joke? Oh, the fun we’ve had)?

Although Jenna was skeptical at first, it didn’t take long for Chad to make himself know. A first date was arranged and after, as we’re told, a lot of making out later (well, who can resist a good beard like that?) Jenna and Chad became a happy couple!

Five months down the line in Hawaii, Jenna and Chad became engaged! Though Chad knew he wanted to propose after just two weeks together. The happy couple now share a beautiful home in Chicago and will be married after about a year of being together.

We couldn’t be happier for Jenna and Chad, we wish you all the best in the future. We’re delighted to have heard and shared your heart warming story.

A Bristlr Success Story – Sheyleen & Bill

We’re happy to report that we’ve been having success after success over here at Bristlr!

Our latest success story comes from Sheyleen, who’s met her bristly soulmate on Brisltr. We’re delighted to share their story, as told by Sheyleen:

13262161_10201949946906298_202386171_oI want to shoot my thanks your way, Bristlr! Met my soul mate and soon to be husband on your app last year.

I’m living in Rhode Island and my handsome bearded fella happened to be in Massachusetts. We started talking the day I liked his profile and haven’t gone a day without speaking since.

We’re planning our engagement for October of this year, and getting ready to find a place together by mid summer.

He is the most amazing person I’ve ever met and I’m beyond happy I joined Bristlr.

We wish you both nothing but the best, and congratulations on your engagement!

A Bristlr Success Story – Jacquelynn and Luke

Untitled-3Another message another success story! This week we’ve been contacted via Facebook by Jacquelynn to thank us for uniting her with fiance Luke.

Jacquelynn shared the story of how she and Luke met, and I was touched. It’s always wonderful to hear that Bristlr has united two happy people.

So, to thank Jacquelynn and Luke for sharing their heartwarming story with me, I’m delighted to share their story with you.

‘When I first messaged Luke neither of us thought it would go quite so far – but that’s what made it so much more special.

We weren’t pushy or too forward, we wound up having long, philosophical discussions, and related on levels much deeper than just general interests. I mean, you get a lot of messages like, “Nice tattoos! Nice beard! Awesome music taste!” So it’s a breath of fresh air to discuss more.

So after a week of messaging on Bristlr we exchanged numbers and we met up in Brooklyn for our first date. We were both nervous but we broke through that initial awkwardness and it was like we were best friends for years. We had great food and came back to his place and played some Skyrim.

After that we took a lot of trips out, and he’d use the excuse of the crowded city to hold my hand. He’s a foot taller than me, so I’m a bit easy to lose!

We decided on New Year’s eve a year ago to seal the deal. He was my first kiss of that year, and now he will always be for the rest of my years!

I stayed with him in Brooklyn for a little while until we both decided to officially move in with one another. We started over brand new with one another.

When I first told my parents that this was the man I was going to marry, my mother almost choked on her drink! She never thought she’d hear those words from me. Even I was taken by surprised, I never thought I’d say the words myself. But when you know, you know!

Luke plays roller derby, so he likes to teach me how to skate. I’m a huge music fan and play guitar so I always like to introduce him to new music, and give him musical advice.

We love spending time together (with our cat too!), playing video games and reading graphic novels. We also love to go out on adventures!

He’s my best friend, my partner and we are each others’ rocks. Not a day goes by without us expressing our appreciation for each other.

We’ve decided to get married September 30th, this year. We’re having a Pagan/Wiccan handfasting on a beach in NY, and we’re looking forward to spending the rest of our days together! All thanks to Bristlr. Cheers!!’

A beautiful story, and we’ve been delighted to share it! We wish you nothing but the best Jacquelynn and Luke!
