John Doe writes in… Ninja! I read your blog everyday, it’s awesome! I recommend it to everyone I talk to… My fiancé and I have been together for 6 years and recently became engaged. We have lived together the last 3 years. We are really interested in buying a house. We are getting married in […]

I dated Girl Ninja for 3.5 years before I popped the question. During those 3.5 years we went out to dinner at least once (usually twice) a week.

An updated throwback that should piss half of you off… I’ll never understand why some married couples keep their finances separate (yes, that is me quasi-judging some of you). Maybe it’s the traditionalist in me, but when I asked Girl Ninja to marry me, I asked her to marry ALL of me. This includes (but […]

So my former college roommate was a groomsman in my wedding two years ago. At my wedding he did a peculiar thing. He fell in love with one of Girl Ninja’s bridesmaids. Well, not just any bridesmaid, but GN’s older sister. They hit it off that night and started dating shortly after. On Sunday, he […]
