Little Bear Schwarz, 36, from Seattle and Tobias Bradick, 45 friends for a year before sending a Facebook status appealing to potential suitors who might want to get her.
Tobias admitted that at the beginning, when he told her, he thought she would reject him and said, "I thought she would say thank you, but stop being scary."

The couple, who are now married and have a polyamorous relationship, opened up about the battles that Little Bear had with her confidence.
She began to notice "excess" hair growth on her face and coffin from 14 years, and even though she went to specialized doctors, she was never sure what caused it.
She spent the next 16 years, "trying to hide it" and would only shave her face and chest in the shower to avoid the deep shame of being hair.
It took Little Bear years to accept his bearded face when she told the presenters Ruth and Eammon: "My younger years were very difficult. I had this hair and no one could tell me or help me where it came from. & # 39;
Little Bear told this morning's Ruth and Eamonn she had many people who wanted to get her – but that they should be able to handle the "stigma" to dance a bearded woman
Tobias admitted he was initially nervous about the modest Little Bear when he thought she would reject him  She said: "No one said I could just grow it, it was not presented as an option. & # 39;
But when she was 31, she moved to Seattle and in the progressive environment she decided not to shave.
She discovered a new found trust after the move and revealed: "I found a flyer for a beard competition and I thought maybe I can do this lucrative. I entered the beard competition and I won. & # 39;
Now she says the bitch is her star function, but admitted it was hard to find someone to love.
Little Bear struggled to accept his beard and for years would shave his face every morning in the shower
WHAT IS POLYCYSTIC OVARY SYNDROME?
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a common condition affecting how a woman's ovaries work.
The three main features of PCOS are:
- Irregular periods – meaning that the ovaries e do not regularly release eggs (ovulation). This can affect a woman's ability to conceive.
- Excessive androgen – high levels of "male hormones" in the body that can cause physical signs such as excess facial or body hair.
- Polycystic ovaries – the ovaries are enlarged and contain many fluid-filled sacs (follicles) surrounding the eggs (it is important to note that despite the name, if you have PCOS, you do not have cysts).
