- Wedding: September 2012
Hi everyone! I’m new, I’m on the waiting list. But I don’t mind. For the first time, I know I’ve found whom I’m supposed to be with. We met about 10 years ago, remained friends for a while. I got myself knocked up, and decided it was my time to go my own way, away from my circle of friends because they were all still in the party mode and didn’t understand what I was dealing with. Fast forward 6 years, he and I are both in abusive relationships. We both found the strength to leave our SO’s and found comfort in each other. After numerous weekends sitting on my front porch hashing things out of what went wrong, we both realized that we had the same exact morals, values, family ties, etc. And the rest is history. I can’t tell you how blessed I am. His family is awesome. My son adores him. I can’t tell you how happy I am right now. I can’t tell you how happy he makes me and how complete I feel. I finally know what it’s like to find “the one”.
When we first started dating he told me that there’s a “2 year minimum”. Meaning he has to date someone for at least 2 years befoe he’ll even consider proposing. I told him that was fine if that was how he felt, but that I had my own timeline. I’m almost 32, I have a 6 year old son, and he wants kids. I’m fully willing to give him those kids, but I don’t want to be an “old” mom. I want to be done having kids by the time I’m 35 or 36. I want my son to enjoy his siblings. I want him to enjoy being the big brother.
J (BF) told me last weekend that I am the only one he’s ever considered reducing the 2 year minimum or completely dropping it for. YAY!
I’ve been engaged before so I’ve been on here, just never posted. I guess I never felt the want to post (should have been a sign). So right now I’m just looking for ideas and support while I silently torture myself waiting for him to pop the question. 🙂 So happy to meet you all!
