- Wedding: May 2015
So, I’m sure many of you are familiar with my moaning and groaning about waiting issues and being too scared to bring things up with my SO, being in the Shut-it-up pact, etc.
Well, I have 2 things that happened over the weekend to share, that have made me SO much less bonkers!
First one was, he said he does want to be with me indefinitely. He’s said that in the past, but for some reason I was having trouble believing it was still true.
Second thing was, we talking about when we want to get married. Seems like we’re pretty much on the same page– sometime in 2015 (though his timeline extends to 3 years from now).
Finally we talked about getting married, we have somewhat similar timelines (though I don’t like the 3-year end of his timeline range), and he wants to make sure we’re engaged before planning a wedding. Because it was a big step for us to say these things, I didn’t ask how long he thought our engagement should be (though I am dying to talk about that). I’ll do that and tell him I think we should be engaged for 2 years sometime later. . .
At any rate, the worry about whether he wants to marry me or not is gone, and I have a limit on how long I’ll be waiting! I still can’t wait to get engaged though. . . by his timeline, that would be 1 1/2 to 2 years away IF he proposes within exactly a year of when we get married. But hopefully it will be sooner than that. . . I guess we’ll have to talk about that at some point soon– maybe in the middle of March after our 4-year dating anniversary. 😉
Argh! For some reason the site is not registering that I am using the enter key on my computer to input paragraph spacing, even when I put it in when I’m typing, it doesn;t come out that way when I post this! Sorry everyone, this is aggravating!
