- Wedding: May 2014
Last night I was camped out in our living room watching Say Yes to the Dress with SO sitting next to me happily playing his video game on his computer when he starts explaining my show to his friends on voice chat. Then the next thing I know he’s telling his friends how the timing is just wrong and I won’t get to go shopping for my own wedding dress for a couple of years but at least I’ll know what I want. I wanted to just melt into a puddle of tears. It just hurts to hear him say marriage is so far off. I have a long timeline but I’m holding on to a little hope that I don’t have to wait the full five years.
But you know what?! He is perfect for me. And he is absolutely wonderful.
I’ve been having problems with me and SO’s roommate and I hit my limit last night. I got up and just walked out because I had to get out. I took my keys and just left. I was too upset to talk. It didn’t even occur to me to bring my wallet or my phone. Well I came home a couple hours later when I knew our roommate would be in bed. And there was my SO waiting for me at 1:30am. He did his absolute best to comfort t me but after an hour I was still in tears and told him I just needed to get out. The next thing out of his mouth was “Ok where are we going?” At 2:30 in the morning he dropped everything to drive me an hour and a half to my parent’s house to just get away (my parents are out of town and told me I was welcome if I needed to escape. My roommate has been really emotionally distressing to me recently and they’ve gotten to listen to me complain). He said exactly the right thing “If you need to get up and go, ever, just tell me and we’ll go. I know you are a flighty creature and that’s fine as long as you always take me with you.”
