Hi, I just joined this site. First, Merry Christmas!!!
I’ve been lurking for the past few days and thought I might as well join. I’m not sure if I “belong” though. I’m not even close to getting married!
I’ve been with my bf for 15 months now and we’re mid-20s. A few weeks ago, I must’ve been bitten by the marriage bug or something because I can’t stop thinking about it!! It surprises me that this urge to start the next stage of my life came sooo suddenly. So the BF and I talked about it. He said he could picture us spending the rest of our lives together and that wouldn’t want to date longer than 3 yrs before proposing. See, I think that’s a totally reasonable timeline but now that he’s said that (and it was my fault to bring it up at all) I’m going crazy!!!
I calculated it would be in the Fall of 2012. I think I’m going crazy!! I don’t know why I’m so eager for it. 2 months ago I was perfectly sane. I’ve already told him which ring I want at least 3 times already.
I’m embarrassed to tell everyone my obsession so I’ve only told my best friend who is 800mi away.
Help me stop!!!!

It’s tough when you reach that point in the relationship where you know you want to be married but you aren’t ready for it yet. You will find a lot of support here though!

I agree with MissAsB- it is difficult to wait once you figured out that part to your relationship- but we are here to help! Welcome!

I totally understand how you feel. Once I “knew” he was the one, I all of a sudden got really into the whole wedding thing. That’s how I found the ‘Bee, which helps keep me sane! So you are not alone! Welcome! 🙂

I’m in the same boat. My bf and I have been together for almost 6 years and have been discussing marriage for 2 years. It’s not like its a new topic but I have recently gotten obsessed with the idea of us getting married…maybe because I just get the funny feeling that something is happening behind my back (good things), or that he seems to make more effort towards taking the leap. I can’t stop either. I hope that he does it soon. I’m ready. I find that writing your feelings and frustration out in a journal helps keep anxiety at bay. Good luck, we’re rooting for you! 🙂
