- Wedding: October 2013
I’ve been lurking for a few weeks so figured I’d come and introduce myself. My name is Ashley, I’m 25, and I am a waiting bee! Well, I’m waiting for a lot of things right now which makes life really frustrating right now.
Boyfriend or Best Friend and I are long distance — have been since we started dating — at two different graduate schools, luckily in the same state. We’ve known each other since high school (going on 9 years!) but have been dating a year and a half. Boyfriend or Best Friend is graduating in May while I’m theoretically continuing with my Ph.D. after finishing my masters this semester. I say theoretically because the more Boyfriend or Best Friend applies for jobs (which are a similar thing to what I want to do) the more I feel like its pointless for me to get my Ph.D. and stay separated from Boyfriend or Best Friend, at least part time. Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have plans to move in together part time with me commuting back and forth between where he is and where I am, which will be better than my situation now, but still very frustrating. This is all dependent on him getting a job though…
Boyfriend or Best Friend has dropped many hints in the last few months about getting married and proposals and we’ve talked about it a bit, but both want to live together and let him get setteld in his career a bit before we officially get engaged, so we’re likely still about a year off from officially getting engaged, but its prompted me to start looking at rings (so I get an idea of what I like to share with BF) and what we should talk about before that ring is on my finger.
So hi, all, I’ll be here a while!
