Ohmygosh, I have tears in my eyes and Darling Husband is looking at me like I’m nuts because I’m squealing at the computer monitor.  Ha!  Honey, that’s WONDERFUL!!!  Let the ring shopping begin!  Woohoooo!!  

So, any ideas yet as to what you’re looking for?

Also, I am so sorry that you are hurting.  I’ve been where you are, to a degree, with the abusive ex, and then the wonderful man walking into your life.  I am so sorry that you are experiencing homesickness and are so far away from your family and friends. But I hope that looking online and pouring over various ring sites will help your heart tonight!

Abusive exes are the worst. Before I dated my now Fiance, I jus KNEW nobody would ever want to be with me, let alone love me. Turns out, I was wrong, and I’m so glad I was. It’ll take time to get over that, but you will.

And CONGRATULATIONS! You get to start looking for rings! Yay!!

Congratulations, that is so wonderful! I felt very similarly about myself, worthless and absolutely undeserving of anybody’s love, not due to an ex but due to my relationship with my dad, and I am so lucky to have found the kindest, most gentle man to spend my life with. 

I hope you have tons of fun ring shopping! “State of the relationship” talks that go this well (and are EASY) are the best thing!

Sometimes telling someone what you want or need from them works- well done!

Great story!  My ex was abusive as well as my parents who were badly abusive.  My therapist has met with Darling Husband and I numerous times and tells me I really hit the jackpot this time around too.

It wasn’t luck that you found your now Fiance. You deserve a good man.


Btw, I love rubies.  My birthstone.

Congratulations on your engagement and on having the easiest  The Talk in recorded history.
