Hello bees 🙂
I was told about this board a few weeks ago from my girlfriend who used to use this as a place to vent while waIting. I have to admit I thought it sounded silly at first until I starte reading all your posts and then realized that i too have the same things in common as all of you. Just waiting for my day to finally arrive. I have been with my boyfriend for four and half years and I am twenty-three he is twenty-six. Whole we spend just about every day together we live in separate places as I feel it will only prolong our engagement. our relationship is a good one and we get a long well and have fun together, we do on the sometimes have arguments but who doesn’t. Whenever we talk about marriage or our future together he tells me he doesn’t want to rush things. This scares me because we have been dating so long I don’t understand whthink he rushing things comes from. I feel so impatient and it doesn’t help when all my family and friends are getting married. he will also tell me when we talk about getting married that he wishes he met me when he was a little older. I dont know if i can wait any more patiently then i am without it making me crazy! I know he doesnt lkke when I get crazy marriage driven but i just wish he would see it from my perspective. He is not the type who plays games and I know that if i were to leave him it probably wouldnt work. Does anyone have any sugestions for me on how to handle this. maybe some questions i can ask him or ways to figure out what it is he is really scared of. I know i love him and want to spend my life with him but i feel almost empty because the pressure i put on myself. I just want to be happy like everyone else around me getting married.
