I hear you girl.   I did a bit of an emotional thing on the day my former friend got married.  SO didn’t get it but I sucked it up. 

Anyway I’m glad your SO finally clicked at what your getting at.   I do hope he asks that four word question Wink

@Berrymagick:  I did pretty muh the same thing and he’s finally got it!  Dont regret it, you’re just acting out fo frustration and its shows how much you meant to him that he hasnt ran for the hills…why does this subject drive us girls crazy!!!

@Berrymagick :

i love that you do the “kid” math like me… my so and i are 8 years apart so aiming for kids at the right age for both of us is challenging.

Sometime you gotta lay the math out for them before they start seeing the reality.

I dont really feel like you pushed the engagement button too hard, you just basically explained your comfort zone ๐Ÿ™‚

@Berrymagick:  I could have written this myself! The conversation I had with my SO that woke him up went just like yours. I think I even said something lame like ” the future is now” lol.

You gotta love men.  Yes i understand it must be nice only being concerned about the here and now.  But come on.  Glance into your future a little bit.  Because life goes by faster than you think and you don’t want it to catch you off gaurd.

Congrats! ๐Ÿ™‚

A lot of men need it spelled out. I hate the whole idea of the “shut it up pact”. As if we shouldn’t have a say in our future and express our feelings as such. Give me a break.

I was worried for a while about him feeling ‘pressured’ but ya know what? When you’ve invested into a relationship for years but emotionally and financially, a little pressure isnt really a bad thing! I’ve had my share of not so calm melt downs and it seems to open their eyes a bit. Men can be so dense.

I might have missed it but what is a “shut it up” pact?

@Piscean:  OMG I’m a pisceas too!  lol.  I’ve only recently learned that a ‘Shut it Up’ pact is a game that bees play on the website.  The goal is to not talk about marriage with your boyfriend.  I read a recently posted article that another bee put on here about how men don’t want to feel pressured, and want to get engaged on their own terms.  So, shut it up and don’t talk about it as long as you can.  LOL.  I’ve started officially as of Tuesday, so far, it’s been 3.5 days WOOHOO ๐Ÿ˜€

Ugh, this is why I think it’s not wise to move in with a SO before engagement, if marriage is your goal. He’s already getting what he wants, without the commitment. I’m glad it appears to be working out for you, though!
