SO back story….we’ve been together 5+ years…the problem is that he is 23 and I’m 21. So in May he will graduate from college and finally save up to buy a ring. So in the big scheme of things I have a year left to wait.
But we’ve been togeather for such a long time that I drove him crazy over the summer when my friend got married talking about rings and engagement that he asked me NOT to talk about rings and such until May. Well, it’s been 2 whole months and I havn’t brought it up this whole time and I don’t know if when he told me not to bring it up was out of angry or what because he seems to have forgot about it and keeps taunting me with saying things like
“i want to make you my bride” or
“i want to be engaged to your”
or even his friends will say things like “he has to save money for the ring”
which is SUPER ANNOYING since I know for sure that he wont be saving any money for the ring until his last semester of college is paid for.
—–FYI before you tell me to talk to him…i’m going to tonight…just have to wait until he gets home, but wanted to talk to people who understand——

You’re too young to be this anxious about getting married, girl. The majority of your relationship was in your adolescence. I would just try to breathe! Try to revel in your relationship, rather than in the pain of waiting.

I doubt he is trying to taunt you, but rather affirming that he does want to marry you someday. I know what waiting feels like, but I really wish I’d cherished that time in our relationship rather than looking only for the next step. I wasted a lot of time worrying about something that fell into place right when it was supposed to.

Like the PP said, you’re way too young to be stressed out about not being engaged yet. You’re both so young. Yes you’ve been together for 5 years, but most of those years were as teens. What’s the rush?

I don’t think your too young. I was engaged at 21 and although a majority of our relationship was in our adolescence, it still counts to me. We grew together and learned together, and not many people can say that. I know waiting sucks, but I agree with what the previous posters have said. It is nice to be able to enjoy the time you have with him. It will happen one day and then everything will fall into place. I wouldn’t worry so much about it right now and just worry about getting your lives together first.

Just enjoy being together… you have a lot to enjoy about life and your relationship right where it is at your age.
