He asked me (out of curiosity) when I would like to get engaged. I said this summer. I said because we’ve spent our entire relationship long distance, we’re already being tested, and we’ve made it this far. I’m halfway through college, we HAVE been through a lot, and if we can do this, we can definitely last. We know we want to be with each other because we’re going through the distance for each other, and he’s oh so definitely worth it without a doubt.
He teased and said ‘isn’t it a bit soon?’, but he agreed with everything I said, said other couples have been engaged sooner than 2 and a half years, said other couples haven’t been through as much as we have and still gotten engaged.
And I showed him the ring I want from Asha. I told him it will take him forever to save up for it. He said lol, you’ll see. And I said ‘yup, we’ll wait and see, I’ll be right’.
For the first time ever, I’m hoping I’ll be wrong! 😛 I hope it’s this summer, because summer of 2013 is not guaranteed at all if we’ll see each other or not (I’m staying in the UK because I might have Masters interviews then). Sooooo fingers crossed it’s this summer 🙂

@OrchidsandCandles: Fingers crossed for you, as always! That sounds positive. Are you thinking you will wait and get married after the summer of 2013 then? I think you’ve mentioned in previous posts, sorry, but are you guys planning on being married before or after you move? (You’re going to the US, right?)
P.S. I really do have no idea why you are awake at this time of night – or myself for that matter.

@VickyAurea: Aw thank you! I’m so happy! We’ve never had issues with regards to engagement, he’s always happy to talk about it, and rings (goodness, the amount of rings I’ve shown him, all his ‘most visited’ sites are jewellery sites LOL)
Hm, he’ll be finishing school in about 3 years, but by 2015 we will be married I daresay! And because I plan on doing a PhD here, he’ll be moving over for a short while – he’ll work here for a while whilst I get my PhD, once I have it, we’ll move over to the States!
I don’t actually know, my sleep rhythmn is messed up 🙁 Ergo why I am up at this time haha
@Great Gatsby: Exactly, we plan on having a nice, long, relaxed engagement. I’m in no hurry to get married, but I want to get engaged just because it’s the next step forward! And then when the time comes, plan the wedding in a relaxed way 🙂

@OrchidsandCandles: Ouh that sound a hard relatioship (i dont normally believe in long distance relation i went through same once and didnt work out ) but that was because mine was not commited, if he showed you love then is great because distance may strenghten your relation..in other it breaks it ..
,sounds like your boyfriend is interested in subjet but im just wondering why he think “its too soon” cose after all i always thought if you love someone and are sure about it you dont have doutbs and nothing sound too soon when you are in love (mine was a crazy proposal,we got engaged just 4 months later (yeah 4 motnhs,i know what people are thinking ,it wont last cose too soon,well ,he was so afraid i would leave finland ,and we been together 3 years since),
i dont want to sound a negative person in here neither break your dream,,just because by experience when I expected soo much from the relationship i didnt get anything result I was hurt
..and men are sometimes very hard to read,more then women,,i would reccomend you not to stress so much about it,,the thing he asked you is a VERRRY POSITIVE SIGN but also looking to other peoples board of wedding and stuff will put pressure to you,,and in case you wont get engaged yet you will be didsappointed especially cose you put your life out here,,making you feel worse..(im just tring to consider every possibility here and dont want you hurt..so I SUGGEST NOT posting anythign untill you are getting engaged and we will all celebrate youu 😀
that said i still got positive feelings about your coming proposal,,,so I cross my fingers for you and hoping to see soon a pic of your ring!!:))..for now just be happy of your loveeeeee (I HOPE i didnt make you upset with my opinion,,im just trying to be helpfull..

It was for the best in the long run. Besides, I have found someone much more compatible for me now 🙂 And it’s going along at a wonderfully slow pace!
