So I’m mostly a lurker, I found this site right before my boyfriend and I took a break after 2 and a half years because we were not on the same page about getting married. We got back together in October and things were going so smooth. He proposed to me on 12/12/12, with the most beautiful ring ever, and I am still on Cloud 9!
I just want to thank everyone on this board, it helped to know that I wasnt alone in waiting. And I also want to give some words of encouragement to those that I know are considering a “walk date.” I went with my gut and moved out, even though I still loved him. That time apart was the best decision I ever made. It gave him time to work out his commitment issues and figure out that he couldnt live without me, and it gave me the confidence to know that I could survive on my own and support myself. We came back as equals, both knowing in our hearts that we wanted to spend forever together. Thank you all, and best of luck to everyone!

@lendhop: Congratulations! Your ring is beautiful and I’m so glad that everything worked out for you! It’s hard for most people to take the chance of moving out or moving on. It’s great to hear that he realized that he can’t be without you! I’m sure that’s very reassuring to you 🙂
