during my mister’s latest visit, we had a few talks about our marriage and wedding plans. i showed him the ideas i pieced together so far for our wedding and we even watched a few episodes of say yes to the dress. while we were watching tv one night, he told me he couldn’t wait to marry me so i asked him if he had a timeline on when he’d like to be engaged by. he said he didn’t have one but that it would be soon.
basically our engagement hinges on his finding a job and moving out here to be with me. sounds great but with the way the economy is right now, we just don’t know how soon that could be. completely understandable and makes sense but kind of frustrating because we’re at the mercy of potential employers (i’m looking for work too so its doubly frustrating). so we’re still floating in perpetuity but on the bright side, he did say he doesn’t plan on waiting long after he does make the move here, so theoretically it could be the day he moves out here.
though i am hopeful and excited about it. i’m sure we’ll both be able to find something this year and the thought of finally being together (we’re in our 6th year of doing the long distance thing…and in our 6th year of dating!) and finally moving towards being married is super exciting. so here’s hoping we land those jobs soon!
and i have to add, as soon as we had this conversation, one of my first thoughts was: i have to share this with the hive. LOL.

@tea: I feel ya girl, mainly cause I’m in the same position minus the long distance. While he has a steady job, I am full on job hunting mode, and I feel unofficially an engagement hinges on the success of me finding one. I hope you’re doing better that me though, I go from being super pump “Yeah let’s do this, find this job get this show on the road! to “Sigh no one’s calling woe is me.”
But I’m super excited to see our No. #1 get crossed off the list. So goodluck on both of yall job hunting, hope it happens real soon.

I just had a similar conversation with my BF, even though I was trying my hardest to fulfill my goal of getting through Christmas and V-day without commenting on it. He says soon, too, as soon as he has solid plans for next year. (He’s waiting to hear back from grad schools and law schools, and where he’ll be living. We’ve been doing the LDR thing for our entire relationship too, which will be 4 years on the 2/12.)
I’m crossing my fingers for you and thinking good wonderful thoughts!

Oh yes – epic celebrating will have to happen when you get crossed off!
Soon is a very promising word as far as timelines go. It can be frustrating, but soon as opposed to someday is a great step in the right direction.
6 years of long distance! Oy vey! You guys are troopers! I hope the job search is merciful for both of you!

@prshadow: ha, no i haven’t. i think i’d die from the anticipation. i’m the worse when it comes to knowing surprises are coming. the soon is enough to whet my appetite but not enough to drive me crazy. lol
@MsMamaBear: thank you! if i wasn’t already super amped to get back to work, this definitely would have helped.
