- Wedding: May 2013
Hi girls! I’ve been looking around on these boards for a couple of weeks, so I decided to stop by and actually write something today.
Our background story – My boyfriend and I just celebrated our 2 year anniversary a couple weeks ago. We grew up in the same town, so we have been friends on/off since 9th grade. Now we have both graduated from college and are planning on going to graduate school at the same university. We have been long-distance for a year now, but we’re planning to move in together in August!
Okay, so for the first two years of our relationship, we never said much about our future together. Then, our friends just got engaged recently on their 3 year anniversary, and since then, he has been mentioning alot of things about engagement, marriage, and our future together. Needless to say, this makes me very happy!
We have even gone ring shopping! I’m not sure if he planned it, but here’s how it happened – He has friends who work at a jewelry store, and we went there while we were at the mall so he could say hi and I could meet them. Then, he started wandering around the store and stopped at the engagement rings to see which ones I liked!
Since then, he has asked about my “dream wedding” – size, place, location, guests – a few times! We have talked about money, kids, houses, jobs, everthing. When we talked about how many kids he wants, he said that he wants to become a young dad in a few years, so he’d like to be married before that. He even joked about just going ahead and getting married on my birthday in July, which leads me to a question for all of you…
I was talking to him on the phone last night, and he told me that he has decided on a birthday present to buy me. I asked him for one hint, and he said, “Well, it’s a small gift.” That’s all he said, but of course, I immediately thought of a ring! I might just be very hopeful, so I decided to ask all of you girls what you think! So I want to know what you girls think?! Is there a chance that he’ll be proposing? 🙂
