Hello, I’m new to this board, but i’ve been lurking for some time now. Here’s my story.
I met my boyfriend 3.5 years ago, he asked me out on a date and we’ve been together until then. I’m a canadian resident and if I ever want to live with him, we have to get married.
in september 2009, he bought an engagement ring, he let me choose it and he asked my parents for my hand. I tought he was going to propose in december 2009 for xmas and we would get married by summer, but it didn’t happen. In fact, we had a fight and almost broke up. I told myself I could surely wait another year and i tought this xmas was IT. Well, last november, he told me he didn’t want to get married this year. I asked him, this year or ever? He replied this year and he said it was better if we broke things up… We’re still talking and emailing because I can’t believe what’s happening. Is it possible that he bought a ring and then changed his mind? We haven’t really talked about our relationship since we broke up, so i asked him if he would agree to meet me. I’m leaving on vacation for a couple of weeks and we agreed to meet when i come back. Should I still hope we can work things out? We hardly fought, we both make good money and have good jobs. I really don’t know how this could happen. I’m 33 and he’s 44, but age was never a factor in our relationship. We’ve both never been married.
Is this fixable? I miss him like crazy and i’m willing to do pretty much anything to get him back. I’ve decided to give him some space until I return, hoping it will help.
