First off, sorry this is so long, I edited a lot out and still have a novel.
My BF and I have had a couple of talks about marriage and engagements, and I know it is something he and I are working toward. However, outside of those conversations, he used to never want to talk about anything related to weddings, engagements or marriages (he says because he wants to surprise me, and THEN I can go nuts with wedding stuff). HOWEVER, the past couple of weeks he has been talking about weddings and the future! Here are my 3 signs that it is getting closer…
1. Last week I was helping one of my friends look around on line for a reception wedding dress, which then led to my BF and I looking at wedding dresses for an hour! (Well, more specifically the ugly ones, so I now know what he doesn’t like!). A few months ago he would have never wanted to look at dresses, even just for fun and humor reasons.
2. With him finishing up his master’s degree next fall and him starting to apply for PhD programs and jobs, we started talking about what that means for us. We both agreed that after he graduated next year, we don’t want to do long distance anymore, and he knows that I’m more than willing to quit my job and move almost anywhere. I reminded him that I’m never going to quit my job and make a big move for “just a boyfriend” and he thought that seemed perfectly legit. So he wants me to move with him, but knows I won’t unless he officially commits.
3. My BF and I send text messages to each other constantly throughout the day; we’ve been doing this since we first started dating. Anyway, a big majority of our messages are sending random links we found online, and then making comments about it. For the past couple of months I’ve been sneaking in links to ring porn. And he generally will just ignore these links or respond with “………….” or “lalalala” or he will just ignore it. In a moment of weakness last night, I sent him links to about FIVE different rings within about ten minutes. He ignored it, but I brought it up on the phone last night. I asked him if it was okay to send him the links, or if he would really rather not have me do it. His response “It’s okay honey.” I then asked him, “So you are saying it is okay to look this stuff up?” And my awesome man said “yep!” So I’ve officially been given permission!!! (Not that I need permission)
So ladies, the point of this message is just to say, I’ve had a couple really good waiting weeks and that I’m now more excited than ever. I just want the waiting to be over, but right now I’m content with where we are (for now). Again, sorry about the length of this post, but I’m just in a really good, happy mood and had to share!
