So… Yesterday I called around to some more apartments. We viewed one on Monday and it was another hell hole. J and I talked and both agreed that we liked the very first one we saw.
Here’s why I’m proud of myself: Instead of beating around the bush and being all nicey nice on what I want, I just laid it all out there. I don’t know what came over me. I said: “I’m fine with moving, but you need to take care of the other things before we sign anything”. He played dumb of course, and asked “What other things?”. I said: “We talked about this before. I want to do this ‘right’ this time around. Therefore I want to be engaged before we move or sign anything.” He replied with: “Ooooh, those other things. Gotcha.” He suggested I call the apartment to find out exactly when it’s available. He said that he is going to drive to that apartment after work today to see how long it takes him to get home from work. Oh, and FYI… The apartment is less than a two minute drive (literally, two minutes) from my parents house. Hmm.
Anyhoo, ya, so I’m proud of myself for speaking up, lol. That is all.

Good Job. Way to speak up and stand your ground! I feel like some guys need to just be told right out because they sometimes miss the hints.

*yay* it definitely sounds like you are getting a ring soon. Good for you for letting him know exactly what you need before moving in (and good for him for planning to give it to you and not making any excuses) I can not wait to read your proposal story. When do you think he is looking to move in?
