Been lurking for a couple of weeks. I found this site through a google search (briefly stated “quick engagement”) and love it so far! It’s already been so helpful just reading it. Especially the threads about Moissanite, etc. (I’m one who doesn’t want a diamond, more on that later).
I’m excited to keep reading here… everyone’s stories are so colorful and wonderful!
I’m officially in waiting mode. We’ve had “the talk” (on multiple occasions), are looking at rings, have chosen a destination and colors… and my seven year old son is literally pushing us down the aisle – which just makes everything even more wonderful. I’ve said if my son doesn’t like you, you’re out of luck. He’s passed the test, I’m happy to say.
Things have moved rapidly due to that funny thing called life. We met when we both lived in Arizona, however, his job has sent him to Salt Lake City, Utah (700+ miles apart ACK!!!!), which, along with other “life slams you in the face” issues, has caused us to begin talking marriage sooner than I expected. I will tell you part of me is nervous and scared but I think that’s natural. If I wasn’t nervous at all, I would be worried.
So here we are. I drove up to see him last Friday since I’m on a hiatus at work and couldn’t bear another minute apart from him. I’m in constant awe at how well we just “work”… as though we’ve been together ten years I swear. Finishing each others sentences, saying the same thing at the same time, same thought processes… it really is surreal. We’re that couple that makes folks sick (we really need to stop that! Ha!).
Delighted to be here! Now it’s time to hurry up and wait!
