Finally decided to come join the “buzz” after viewing so many posts. This site is pretty amazing from what I see so far, and im excited to be here!
What generated me coming to this site? I’m expecting a proposal soon. lol I know its coming in a few months, just not sure when. Im 28, and in a loving 2 year relationship. The biggest hints have been: His mom making lots of talk about us being married, him calling me by his last name, observing my hands a lot, and just being very, very happy around me lately. Pretty sure those are obvious.
I never saw myself as getting married. For years, I had low self esteem, although I never had a problem having a relationship. Im just part-time boyish: Video games, jeans and a tee, I play in dirt (gardening), and most times will put up a good arm wrestle. lol
He and I have been discussing marriage a whole lot lately too. Although, I don’t want to ruin anything I try to keep quiet. So, we’ll see.
Im here to learn about what engagement means, and exactly how to handle myself once it does happen. There are excellent posts here on how to handle jealous friends and family members. Quite sure those will come in handy for me. lol I also love the ones with the flowers and the rings, and the dresses. This site rocks!
Looking forward to getting to “buzz” with you all!

@GirlWithTheGlassSlippers: Hi there! I’d say welcome, but it’s actually my first day at the boards too! I guess we can be “newbees” together. I’ve also been lurking the boards, and after seeing the diversity among these boards (so many accomplished and driven yet romantic women!) I decided to take the plunge and start posting today as well.
You seem like you have a good relationship with your SO. Have you discussed any sort of timeline as to when you would like to be engaged/married? You seem confident that it’s coming so that’s great!
My “issue” is that I was strung along for 6 years (from age 18-24). I am 29 almost 30 now, but still healing from the scars. This feeling of not being good enough for some arbitrary reason cuts deep and becomes ingrained in your soul – it’s very hard to kick! However, now I’m in an amazing relationship (I am glad I can gush about it here!) with my SO who I met back in 2011. We met on June 15, 2011 – hence the 615 in my user name. I have to remind myself every day that this guy is NOT my ex, and it’s not fair to deem myself “unloveable” b/c I am only letting the ex win. My SO wants to be with me, and a proposal is coming in 2013 – he just has to ask my dad as he’s old-fashioned like that. Anyway – I do not want to thread-jack, but I’m glad I’m not the only “newbee” here!

@GirlWithTheGlassSlippers: Welcome! Hopefully it happens soon. :O) It definitely sounds like he’s hinting at it for sure. Have you guys looked at rings OR are you hoping for something completely anonymous?

@MrsNewDay: Welcome to you as well! A great thing to remember – you are an amazing woman and your SO or Fiance knows that. He loves you for you and what he knows you can be. It’s easy (for some stupid reason) to delve into the past and remember what hurt you but it’s easier (if you let it) to let the RIGHT person love you. Good luck! I hope it happens soon!
