Just wanted to share something with you and ask for your thoughts. My SO and I are currently long distance, about 1,5 hour plane ride away from each other. We see each other every 2 months.
6 months ago, he did not know when and if he would be proposing, saying that he is not ready yet, needs to be sure, our relationship is not stable enough, yada yada yada. (well, the relationship not being stable part was true, but we have worked a lot on it since, and we are in a very happy and stable place right now 🙂 )
For the last few months I have only mentioned engagement casually and did not pressure him at all about it, thinking he should feel ready himself without me nagging him all the time.
Today he texted me that he is getting a nice summer bonus, but he will be reasonable and spend it on paying off some of his bank loan.
I replied “Honey, just a thought, why don’t you put some of the money aside for unexpected expenses in the future, such as a nice little ring? 😉 Just and idea :-)”
He goes: “Hey babe 🙂 What a cute idea 🙂 I have already initiated a savings system, which will enable me to buy you a ring. By paying off the debt now, I will save lots of money on the interests. However, the ring is not forgotten ;-)”
Is this great progress or what? From “not sure I want to marry you” to this??
I am on the 7th cloud – I know it might take a long time from now, but at least I know he is planning to buy the ring and thinking about it!!! 🙂
