After almost a year of wondering where things are going with my long distance bf of about 2 years (we started off as practically next door neighbors and then he moved away for school), I can finally say with confidence that I am officially WAITING for a proposal! Before I was just hoping and wanting one, but I didn’t know when or even if I could expect one because my bf and I weren’t on the same page about being ready to plan a future together. We finally got to see each other over Christmas in Oregon after almost 3 months of not seeing each other at all and he told me that he wants me to be his wife, and that we’ll get married when he finishes his PhD program in 2 years! Yes, it’s still a long time to wait, but I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders now, knowing that we’re headed toward a life together. This also means that a proposal could be coming sometime in the next couple of years, maybe even in 2011. I’m so happy and excited but I haven’t wanted to tell anybody who actually knows me because they’ll probably think I’m crazy for getting so excited about something so far away. I had a feeling you ladies would understand, though. Thanks for sharing my excitement with me!
