I found this site a year ago and really enjoyed reading all of the posts on here and the support you all are giving each other! I am officially waiting now so I think it is time to introduce myself.
My SO and I met 3 years a go this month, but our offical anni is next month a couple of days before xmas. I am 25 years old and my SO is 26. We both work heath care and are both recent grads. Hence, we are still working out the kinks in our career. I moved with/moved in with my SO to a nearby state since he got accepted to a program there, but unfortunatley I was not able to find a job. It stressed me out not having my finaces in order (I am slightly obessive over keeping all my finances in good standing) especially with a huge student loan bill, so now I am commuting back to NY to work for 3 days in my field and drive back the rest of the days to be with him. It is a long commute, but I love him so much and he is so wonderful when we are together that it is all worth it. We hope to move again to another location where we both can find permanent jobs there. So the adventure continues!
I wish to be engaged before we move again since I don’t think I can handle another huge sacrifice in my career without a full committment from him, so we had many dicussions about it. I feel like he nor I should have to carry each other student loans if we aren’t committed fully. He seems to be on the same page so hopefully I will be engaged soon before his program ends! Crossing my fingers!
It feels good to share finally! Thanks for reading =)
