Comments (for longer story if you wish): I have been with my Hunnie Bear for 5 years this August and I am at my limit. In the time we have been together we have seen 3 couples and get engaged, 2 of them are already married and everyone is asking ME “When is he going to put a ring on your finger?”, “When are you getting engaged”. My bff recently asked me the former question and I almost bursted into tears. He says he wants to marry me and his finances are tight. I know he just doesnt have the funds for a ring. So I Have been stearing him to the affordable stuff that is what I like. I am a frugal girl and find the ill bargans, but still something I won’t mind wearing on my finger forever. He doesn’t begrudge me when he catches me looking at wedding related things. I have been laying hints that the milk does spoil eventually and he better invest in the cow, lol. I guess I am just tired of being a Girlfriend. I feel I exceed that job title. I am not trying to rush him to the altar. I just want the recognition, the promise, that eventually we will get there. I hate the word Girlfriend.
I hope he will propose, or at least buy a ring while we are in FL, after I’ve meet his family. I have drawn the imaginary line in the sand for our 5 year anniversay. That gives him our vacation, our friend’s wedding, my birthday and our 5 year anniversay to propose. If he has not we need to have a serious convo.
Will write another post with more thoughts on our upcoming vaca.
Thanks for this great forum!
