Are you serious? You've been dating for like, ten minutes. And when you were with Mark you kept saying he was "the one" and Curtis was "the one." Are you that desperate to get married?

Scarlett,

Given your history with relationships I do think dating a bit longer might be smart before putting a ring on that finger! It's been a crazy year for you. Stephen seems like a great guy, but so did Mark - what's the rush?

I would hate to see other fabulous photogs lose out on the contest just because your fans want to see you get a ring. Votes should not be based on that!

Maggie- There's no rush. I know it's easy to judge based on the surface of what you saw on the blog, but there was and still is a lot I don't share on the blog. Last night Stephen asked my mom for my hand, so we are excited to move towards our future! And the prize money would be a great perk to help goes towards the ring! :-D

To the all the rude commentors:

Who do you think you are to determine how long is long enough? Are you in the relationship? Oh wait...what's that you say...NO! And last time I checked the government isn't forcing anyone to read Scarlett's blog...so if you don't like it....then go read someone else's blog.

Scarlett- love your work and I am a first time commentor. Congratulations on getting engaged and I hope Stephen wins! :)

You've had three "serious" relationships in a year, proclaiming each one was "the one." What the heck is the rush?

February 10, 2010 at 5:55 PM  
Blogger Scarlett Lillian said...

LOL, that's soooo NOT accurate. At least get your facts straight oh Anonymous one. I had a short relationship in early 2008, didn't date anyone again for a year, had a relationship for a few months early last year, then Stephen and I started dating last fall after having met a year ago. What's the big deal? We live and learn. So I've been wrong in the past, good thing God knows better than I do about who the perfect one is for me. Sure, people have told me not to blog about relationships, but I personally enjoy sharing my journey even through the ups and downs.

Scarlett, I am so happy for you!! You and Mark were great together (from what I read on the blog), but you and Stephen seem to have a really fun time and that is awesome!! People think they know EVERYTHING that goes on in your life (me included sometimes...), but you're the only one (and God) who knows who and what is right for you!! I am so happy for you!! Enjoy this fun time and don't let it get you down!

When Ryan proposed to me, some mean-spirited people said "He's only doing it because his dad is sick." That was so not true. Some people just say mean things because they are jealous of your happiness. I could see in the video you made how you two "glow" when you're together.

I have friends who only dated for a short time that are now on their 5th year (I think) of marriage with 2 kids!! They still are as much in love as they were when they "rushed" (some said) into marriage.

Don't let someone who doesn't even have the courage to post their name get you down. Enjoy this exciting time and post some pics of the bling!!

Thanks sooooo much for your love Emily. It's the words from friends like you who personally know me that count the most! I'm so thankful for your kindness. I can't believe it's almost been a year since I shot your wedding! Hope you and Ryan are doing well! Give him a hug for me!

You said that perfectly Scarlett! These people need to take a chill pill and relax on the beach so that they can clear their minds.

To all the haters, I LOVE Scarlett. I don't care what you think and I'd really prefer that you stop saying things about us that are not true. Who even said those things to you in the first place? If you want to know the truth, we laugh at your comments because of how silly and unprofessional you're acting! If your a photographer, would your clients feel good knowing that in the social media world your a bully on the playground? I'm sure glad I am not in your shoes.

Secondly, just stop leaving these kind of words to my girlfriends Blog. I mean, really? Do you wake up each day and the first thing that hits your mind say "what can I say to Scarlett's blog today"? I will protect her against you crazy people and I really only want to say this "one time". Stop leaving bad words to her blog about us.

Now if your goal is to say something wrong about me then I'd really appreciate it if were to contact me directly. I'd love to talk with you on the phone in regards to how silly your acting so that we can clear this all up.

Thanks.

Love you sweetheart!

wowza...i never ready comments on blogs..so i had no idea this was going on..but after i saw your video today "is this thing on?" I decided to hop on down a few posts and see what all the commotion is all about.
First off to those of you "anonymous haters" get some balls and use your name/link. For those haters who use your real name..well atleast you had the balls to use your own name but really should you judge? Maybe you should look back in the mirror and judge yourself. Do you want someone telling you how to run your life? no. It is Scarlett's life and Stephen's life.. not yours. No matter if you think their making a good decision or bad...guess what it's not your decision, it's theirs. If you are not a fan of scarlett then why are you reading her blog? I don't get it.
Anyways...even if she got a ring...it doesn't mean their getting married the next day. They're both busy photographers...their saturdays are most likely booked up, and whichever photographer they choose to do their wedding is probably booked up, so they could be engaged for some time.
Gosh...I just can't believe how quick people are to judge eachother...it's sad.
Stephen - Good Luck on the contest!
Scarlett - :o) yay!!!!

Scarlett, I really admire your patience with these IDIOTS.

This really gets to me, WHO GIVES A RAT'S BEHIND how long you date someone before you are engaged?!
Is it any of your business? What gives you the right to tell her what to do?

Let me tell you something, I met my husband in August, We were engaged in October and married the following January. That's right, from the time we met and were married it was a total of 4 months. I couldn't be happier! We just celebrated our 3rd Anniversary and we have an awesome relationship.

Scarlett, don't let these TURDS get you down. You deserve the best and as long as you include the Lord in your decisions and your relationships, you can't go wrong.

Scarlett, I think you're wonderful. As a person and as a photographer. And the little bit that I have seen of Stephen, you can just feel the love he has for you shining through his posts and smiles and laughs you two share (and then share with us via videos). As you know, I am a firm believer in "when you know, you know." I don't think it takes a decade to fall in love. Greg and I exchanged I love You's within the first month. Literally, we met in May and were married in December. Sure, there may have been a few less surprises (the man is goofy as heck and can't dance lol) if we had dated longer, but I couldn't imagine my life NOT as his wife. We have had some bumps, but all relationships do and we are more happy than ever. I wish you and Stephen all the best. If you dated for 5 weeks or 5 decades, there would always be nay-sayers and evil spirited anonymous commenters. So you do what makes you happy. AAAAND maybe relish a little in the fact that there are so many people out there who it kills to see that beautiful smile on your face.

Love you!
Julianne (& Greg)

Just wanna' say that my husband and I were only engaged for 5 weeks. I was 18 and he was 24. Believe me, people did not like the idea. AT ALL. Well, 3 beautiful children and 11 years later, we are going strong and have loved more deeply with each mountain we've climbed together. I don't know you, but I know that God does. He knows you better than anyone. And it's only His business, anyway, right? :) May He bless you with decades of happiness for you and Stephen. Keep smiling, okay?

Blogger Scarlett Lillian said...

Thanks gals! Big hug!

My parents were similar, they only knew each other 9 months when they got married and they were married 33 years. I've always felt it would be the same way as Jules said, when you know you know... you shouldn't have to "give it time"... You either know or you don't. And Stephen and I knew the first week, but we are just now coming out about it publicly now that he has asked my mom for my hand in marriage.

Yes, as the critics said, I have prematurely thought others were "the one" in the past, but so what? We live and learn. I am a romantic at heart and always the hopeful one. Yes I live my life publicly, which risks also failing publicly, but I'm proud that I have had the courage to admit I was wrong and continue on my journey toward true love!

Thank you to all those who are celebrating with us! Lots of beautiful changes in store for this year! he he he

Hey Scarlett-

I'm sooo happy for you and Steven! Don't let these "annoymous" comments get you down or make you rethink your decisions. Love is funny thing, you know when you know! I've never met Stephen, but from what I've seen of the two of you on these videos and in talking to you, he makes you so happy. You are always smiling and laughing. This is coming from someone who has known you since the 2nd grade. I love you just the way you are. It's amazing to me how hurtful people can be. If you don't approve or have anything nice to say, don't say it. Wow, I sound like we are in Kindergarden. Stephen, best of luck to you!

Colin knew that he would marry me the very night we met. When it's right, you just know. I am very excited for you, you deserve such happiness.

As for Stephen, I am glad to see chivalry is not dead. Bravo for defending your darling girlfriend to all the haters. They are just jealous that combined you two will be a photography superforce!

Best of luck in your journey together, wherever it may lead you :)

Hey Scarlett! I just wanted to give you some words of encouragement tonight! I met my husband on a church ski trip my senior year in high school, and on the way home, I called my mom and told her I met the man I was going to marry. We met in March and were engaged in December, and we've been married for 2 years this past November... so I had age and a short time knowing each other working against me. But when you know, you know. If it's right for you, the Lord will give you peace about it. And as for all the nay-sayers, just kill them with kindness. They obviously can't help thier bitterness.

Hey Scarlett,

Wow, those comments are pretty mean. I may have been cautious and said to you wait a little longer, but then I met my Stephen. We spoke for less than a minute and I knew right there and then that I wanted to date this guy, after 2 weeks of dating him I knew he was the most amazing, gentle and kind soul I had ever met and I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. So, my point is that you know when you KNOW.

As for the hate mail you get, wow, I would not cope with that at all, you are a strong woman to put that out there and not just hit the delete button. Good on you for following your heart and believing in your dreams.

Hi fabulous lady! Hey Stephen! I love your blog, and I love to hear about your relationship! It gives me something to believe in- such as a relationship where two people can laugh and have a good time, and grow together! I think you are both great people with very big hearts, and I feel so bad for anyone that leaves nasty comments... I know that they are missing something in their lives- happiness maybe? God maybe? a good relationship? Who knows.... I feel sorry for them because it is just how they work... putting others down to make themselves feel better. I think you do a better job by making hundreds of others feel better about themselves and I wish you two all the happiness in the world- no matter what! :)

K, for one...not everything was unicorns and rainbows with the other men she has dated. i won't go into details here, it is better left unsaid. yes they were good men by some standards, but they weren't right for Scarlett for a variety of reasons. for two, i was engaged 3 months after meeting my man, married two months later and we are celebrating 14 years of marriage in about a week. oh and we have 5 kiddos now and are still madly and passionately in love. don't let ppl dictate how long you have to date before you can get married. that's silly. scarlett, you know how much i love my man. you have Christ as the foundation of your relationship with Stephen and that is what matters. i'm happy that you are so happy and giddy in love.

Scarlett, I saw both videos and in the second one you mentioned the nay-sayers so I came to check out what they had to say. I am sorry for people like that, just as you are, because they can't have a great relationship with our great God! If they did, they wouldn't have said such mean things. I wish you and Stephen all the best in the entire world and all of God's blessings on you both. And just a reminder, Henry and I met in our (yours and mine) freshman year of high school, his sophomore year. He told me the minute he met me he knew he would marry me. Look at us now! We've known eachother/been together since 1996 and have been married since 2001 and we have three beautiful kids. If you and Stephen are even half as blessed as I am, you will have happiness in abundance! Glod bless you and congrats on finding the one!

I just had to jump in on the comment craziness! I thought your video was fun and creative - I had already cast my vote for another extremely talented friend's site, but I just thought you guys had a great idea to get the attention Stephen needed for the votes!!

As for the "too soon" comments, ignore them! There are sob stories and happy stories on both sides of that argument.

I had a nearly 2 year relationship with my ex-husband before we married, and that was a disaster that ended badly. My Doug and I were together less than a year when we kinda eloped (us, an officiant and a photographer, of course!) and we are almost to 11 ridiculously happy years!! We have never had a time in our marriage when we weren't happy and I attribute that to being able to laugh with and at each other. You guys have that too!

Just keep laughing and keep smiling! And, keep your chin up. You do an amazing job of dealing with the haters!

I pray for nothing but happiness for you and Stephen!

WOW, it was nice to receive so many sweet comments today after a few days of the mean ones. I wish I could hug you all! Thanks soooo much for your support!

Cathy- I didn't realize your hubby was a Stephen too! he he And yeah, I did used to delete the mean comments because I don't believe in promoting negativity, but I've been keeping them lately b/c I've been hearing so many stories from photographers of all levels dealing with hate, and I wanted to keep the comments public to help show others they aren't alone.

Carrie- THANK YOU so much! Very well said!

Melissa- YOU ROCK!!

Laura- you've definitely been there behind the scenes through my ups and downs of things I don't share on the blog, thank you for your continued friendship and prayers! :-)

Stephanie- Thanks so much! It's great to hear from a high school friend! I remember in 10th grade Physics you telling me you were going to marry Henry one day!

Karen- Thanks sweetie for sharing your story!

Scarlett - I have watched your site/blog, etc for a couple of years now. You are an inspiration - I don't know you personally so that leaves me (and everyone else!) NO room to judge. I am happy that you are happy. This is the FIRST time I have ever read the comments, because I usually don't care - but this seemed "different". From what I can see, I have one piece of advice: Your "anonymous" seems like a lunatic stalker. How the heck can he/she remember who you dated, when and where (even if they read the blog - who remembers other peoples details like that?)! Yikes!!! Anonymous - you need a therapist. Scarlett - your work is incredible and I hope to attend your workshop oneday!

Wow - I thought the video was funny and did not take it as you were totally serious. Just want to share - I met my husband and within 1 month we decided to move from CA to FL together. People thought we were crazy, blah, blah. 3 years later we are happily married. But at the end of the day you don't need to justify anything to anyone. Best of luck!

Hello Scarlett!

I've been reading your blog for over a year and I think you're a wonderful person. I am not a photographer and I don't claim to be anything close to one either, but your work is inspiring. Although I don't personally know you, I think that it's wonderful you have found someone so great to call him your best fried and, hopefully, soon-to-be husband. As many have said, there are "haters" out there that only have jelousy coming out of their mouths. My husband and I have been married for six years. We were 18 and 19 years old when we got married after dating for a year and a half. Both of parents supported our marriage although many, whom we thought were close firends, said we would regret it. We didn't get married because I got pregnant. I have never been and we do not have children right now, just two sweet puppies. Why did we get married so young? Well, same reason many people do. We love each other and both of our parents have been a great exmaples of what marriage is all about. I hope that my husband and I can hit that fifty year mark. With the help of God, I am positive we will. Stay strong and follow your heart. It will never lead you wrong. Good luck with everything and I hope you and Stephen enjoy yourselves. Even if it dosen't work out, although I pray it does, remember its all about the journey and the lessons you learn along the way!

Many blessings to you and Stephen!

With love, from Texas!
