Our relationship has been “different” to say the least. Got together last May, moved in together in August (everything fell into place so smoothly, it was almost uncanny).
We had half-jokingly mentioned marriage before, but started to get serious about it in the fall. We’d planned on an Oct 2010 wedding and he said he would propose by the end of the year… Well December came and went without a proposal.
I was a little bummed, but I completely understood. Some things just get said in the moment, and I didn’t want to pressure him at all. Well… January and February passed and I was getting a little anxious, considering the supposed wedding was only in 8 months!
We had a heart to heart about all if it about a month ago (usually, when I brought it up, he desperately tried to avoid it). We are very “outdoorsy” people, and he said he really wanted to wait until the weather warmed up. And that’s it. He has no questions about our relationship or marrying me, nothing. THE WEATHER was the only thing holding him back! Which, I kind of get, but kind of don’t at the same time.
We also decided to wait to get married until October 2011 so we could just enjoy ourselves and our new garden this summer and not stress about planning.
Well, Bees….. It is officially the warmest day of the year today at 80 DEGREES!
Our 1 year anniversary is on May 21st.. But he has told me before he does not want me to suspect it, so I don’t think he will do it then (or is he using reverse psychology!? lol)
I don’t know.. I have been really relieved since we moved the date back a year, not so stressed out about planning without an official engagement… and I’m not bringing “the ring” up to him on a weekly basis 😉
I’m just afraid I’m going to start getting antsy… I’m giving it until the 4th of July before I really have a good sit-down with him to see what’s up.
Well wishes to all you waiting bees!
