I’ve been lurking (which sounds so creepy) for a couple months now, but I’ve finally decided to come out of hiding and join in! You ladies and gents make up a gem of a web community. 🙂
Background blurb: My darling SO and I have been together a little under two years. I’m in my mid-twenties, he is in his early thirties. We’ve been friends for years and we’re definitely on the same page when it comes to our faith and our intentions for one another…buuut that doesn’t mean that I don’t have a few rough waiting days here and there, haha. He makes references to our future as a married couple on a regular basis, but we haven’t looked at rings or set a timeline or anything, so in that sense I’m completely in the dark. I do suspect that he wants to find the ring himself and that he wants the proposal to be a complete surprise, as he’s more traditional/old-fashioned (which I love!)…so in the meantime, I’m trying to be as patient and relaxed as possible!
Mini vent: Today happens to be one of those rough waiting days…it seems as if EVERYONE around me is getting engaged. I’m not exaggerating when I say that 1-2 friends/acquaintances per WEEK have been announcing their engagements for a steady 2 months now. Some of them have known each other for less time than SO and I have been dating! I’m happy for all of them, but I’m also a little surprised at the pangs of disappointment that hit me with every new announcement. And the end of this month kicks off a slew of weddings from last year’s proposals. Sigh. All in due time, right?
