- Wedding: July 2011
I guess I should give you a bit of my background information before I start complaining. So anywho, I’m new to this board… still unsure of what to do. However, I feel like everyone else here is in the same predicament, so I don’t wanna sound too “whine-ey”. Plus, people have bigger problems than this. Whatever. Maybe I’m just emotional due to PMS. Haha.
Here we go. Me and the manfriend have been together for almost 3 years and from the beginning I knew I did not want to be with anyone else but him. He is my light and happiness J. I have a beautiful daughter, from a previous relationship (which btw, was probably the WORST RELATIONSHIP EVER DOCUMENTED IN HISTORY) and somehow my daughter and I managed to find someone who treats the both of us so much greater than anything in this world. Everything seemed to fall in place once we got together. We started talking about building a life together. Then came the big “lay off” for him and he was out of a job for over a year. It was tough seeing him in such a bad state of mind and that’s where it hit him. He should join the Marines…
He says its his calling. And as a good girlfriend I know to be supportive, but also point out the realities of things. But he had made his decision. He spoke with the head guy @ the Marine recruiting office who gave him advice about marriage etc. My manfriend was bringing up marriage and having children like every day and I’m like, “So where’s my ring? I’ve already tried a family without marriage and it was really hard and obviously did not work out. This time I want to do it a differently.” So he took me ring shopping in August of 2010, even though he was unemployed because he previously had a GREAT paying job and was such a saver. I felt bad but I was excited because who doesn’t want a ring?
Do you see that date? August of 2010!!! So the thought of marriage has been implanted in my head even PRIOR to then. He found a great job a month after ring shopping so I got more excited. The manfriend leaves for training in April and there were so many times since then that I thought he would propose. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, 1/11/11, last Tuesday during a GLEE re-run (DAMN! ANY DAY WOULD BE GOOD!). Now, I’m stuck here waiting and if he doesn’t do it before April I will be so pissed. Its like, I know there’s all this pressure on him joining the Marines, but I fully support his decision and will be proud and by his side no matter what. But there’s all this pressure on me to and the anticipation is killing me. Plus my daughter is saying things like “He’s gonna buy you a RRRRR-RRRRR-RADIO!!!” and they both laugh and run away. And its stupid to be mad over that… but I’m just like irritated and getting impatient.
I don’t want to keep bugging him… but its irritating me. If he does propose… I think I’ll take the ring and say maybe… and keep him waiting for a few days. (That’s kinda spiteful but seriously…?!?!) I know a lot of other bees have been waiting longer, but I just had to vent. Or else I’d explode. Sorry guys.
