I have been attempting a half-assed mr. Bee’s plan and focusing on myself and not talking about wedding things and although I haven’t been very good at it… SO is responding! He texted me from work the other day asking ME when I wanted to get married! I told him the truth, that I wasn’t EXACTLY sure because of our schooling, but that we should sit down with my parents (who pay for my schooling and therefore feel they control my life decisions even though this decision should involve me and SO) and discuss again the rule my father gave us when we asked for his blessing this summer, that we had to wait at least two years and then can get married. (Although we probably won’t be married until that point anyways, it would be nice if they would trust that our decisions are right ones so that WE can plan our future, not them.) SO agreed and jokingly decided we should just get married NOW. lol
Then, on our regular Friday night date, we were talking about different restaurants that box up your dinner for you, after our waitress offered to do his, and I said the four star restaurant he used to cook for does that. SO: “Well I never got to ACTUALLY eat there…” and me: “we should go. For our four year anniversary.” SO: “yeah! What’s that, like, two years away? ;)” me: “a few months…” SO, with actual shocked look on his face: “dang. We need to get married.”
DUH. love him.

Mr Bee rocks !!
Honestly more Waiting Bees in my opinion should “check him out”
Between the Life Plan Talk (and hopefully an understanding that comes from that) and Mr Bees Plan, I think that more ladies here would be less tense about “WHAT is going on in my relationship”
(Mind you the first hurdle is self-awareness… EVERY Woman needs to take an inventory of herself and her relationship to ensure that the guy she is dating is the right one for her… have seen too many gals here on WBee who are “wasting their time” sadly on UNDESERVING men)
CONGRATULATIONS on your LOVING Healthy Relationship… sounds like you guys “are on your way” to a Proposal

@ohcaptainmycaptain: AWWWWWWWW that is soooo exciting for you! What a cutiepie at the end there “dang. we need to get married.” awwwwww!!!!
Very excited for you, nice to have a boy on the same page isn’t it? Mine is getting like that too, all cheeky smiles and wants to sit on Pinterest with me and pick out dresses. Makes me melt!
@This Time Round: I’ve read Mr Bee’s Plan and the Shut It Up Pact… but where do you find his other stuff or check him out? 🙂 Sorry for the dumb question also… 😀

TO ParisM: if you’ve read Mr Bee’s Plan… then you’ve seen his most known / valuable contrabution here on WBee (which is what I believe ALL Waiting Bees should give a read to)
BUT a lot of folks don’t know that he is also an ongoing contributor… and so he often comments on topics (nice to have a guy’s POV at times)
You can find his WBee Profile here = http://boards.weddingbee.com/profile/mr-bee
