- Wedding: May 2015
So. . . my boyfriend of 3 years (tomorrow!) and I have been talking about marriage, and engagement, a lot lately. . . we concluded that marriage should probably wait until I’m done with grad school (I just applied). But I BROADLY hinted that there are other things one can do before getting married. . . meaning getting engaged, but he suggested being handfast. . . and I think I made it clear that I don’t mind a long engagement. I really like the idea of being handfast, but not as much as getting engaged. Then later I asked if he would be bothered if I showed him rings I like online. He said no, he wouldn’t mind. . . but he also said “we have plenty of time!” Akkk!!! Plenty of time, ergh! I’ve been thinking about getting engaged for 2 of the 3 years we’ve been together!
I desperately want to show him the various lovely rings I’ve found; in fact sort of by mistake I showed him the most expensive one I like the other night, and he was shocked by the price. . . gah. I want to ring shop with him but money is tight right now– not that I want to spend lots of money on a ring–I don’t, and also don’t like diamonds, so finding something within his price range shouldn’t be too hard; in fact several of my favorites are relatively inexpensive. I’m soo impatient to show him the rings I’ve found and try to get this process in motion. . . but I know he wants to do this in his own time, and I won’t nag. But ugh I am so impatient :P. I know he’s willing to SEE the rings I like, but I’m just impatient for when the right mood strikes so I can show him without worrying that he won’t remember which one I like most, or something!!
Plus we talked about what stone I like the other day. . . I said green tourmaline, but really as long as it isn’t a white diamond, or anything pink or non-glittery, I DON’T CARE!! Now I want to let him know that I’m not super picky about that. . . but need to wait for the right time to bring it up. Argh.
Vent over!! 🙂
