I wanted to introduce myself as I’m new on the boards, but have read them for a while before signing up. I signed up to have support while I wait for that proposal! SO has been warming up to the idea, so I felt it was finally time to join the site. He’s pretty slow on decisionmaking, so I might be waiting a while! Hopefully not because waiting too much longer would be disappointing.
We’ve had some serious talks over the past few months, and I showed him several rings on Etsy I am interested in, over the past month. He was receptive and positive about it. We have definitely talked in the past about marriage many times (we have been together 10 years!), but in a future sense, after I finish school. Now that I will be graduating in May (yay!) I feel like plans can finally start coming together. Thanks all for your support!

@AirLaw: It’s nice to meet you! Welcome to the boards! Don’t worry, we have people getting engaged at Christmas, two years from now and unknown – you’ll fit right in! It’s so exciting he’s looking at rings with you. Most guys won’t until pretty close to getting ready (months, not years, before) so that’s really exciting! Good luck in advance on your upcoming graduation and future with your man!

@AirLaw: Welcome to the Hive!
If you haven’t already, you can check out fun waiting reading like Mr. Bee’s plan for getting married, which is really just a good guide to living life and ‘how to handle the waiting period’. Also, you can join the ‘waiting list’, play the ‘shut it up pact’ game if you’d like, or just join the ‘waiting chant’ for general chatting.

@veryberry13: “Waiting chant” sounds kind of cult-like! 😉
