@MexiPino:  The same thing happens to me every time I try to have a “serious” conversation with SO. We are on the same page, but we choose the words differently and it sometimes leads to a LOT of misunderstanding!

I know how it feels the first time your SO proposes a kind of wedding date that is just a year away. It’s so EXCITING! And I’m super happy for you!Laughing

@MexiPino:  I pick my words very carefully. My SO and I had a bunch of miscommunication in the beginning of the relationship, so now we talk over things a lot more. 

I’m glad ya’ll talked about it and it sort of sounds like your timeline got moved up! YAY!

I started reading this post, all set to console another Waiting Bee…

But wait a sec… this is a GOOD NEWS Post

Sounds like HE KNOWS you need a year to plan a Wedding.

And that this is 2013, and HE WANTS TO MARRY in 2014 (not 2015)

So by that logic, it sounds to me you’ll be getting Engaged BEFORE VALENTINES 2014

Woohoo… this is a boy ahead of the curve !!

AMEN for the guys who are in LOVE and smart enough to listen when us gals talk (even if they can’t formulate a sentence that makes any sense to summarize what we’ve just said, back to us)

Ugggh, lol, I bet you were feeling horrible before the bit in the car… I’m still waiting for a timeline; though SO keeping bringing up our pending 18month milestone every few days.  I hate waiting!

Sounds like your BF likes messing with you! My DH did the same thing right up until the DAY we got engaged. It was always “that thing that might happen, some day in the distant future”

@MexiPino:  Nice!  Yeah those conversations are so awkward, which is weird since you can usually talk to your partner about *anything* else.  This sounds like a good update though! 😀
