hey everyone! so, a little over a year ago when I became active on this site, I was unsure of the dynamics that played into couples preparing to get married. I thought that proposals were supposed to be “surprises”, and that weddings only cost a few hundred dollars (surprise, surprise…that’s not the case lol).
with some of the tough-love and harsh (though well-meaning) advice from you guys, I’ve become a better communicator. because of that, I was able to better communicate my needs from the relationship, and my SO, because he cares about me, adjusted his own communication to accommodate my needs. for instance, at 5 years in, I needed some clarity on *when* we could expect to be married, *when* we would get engaged, etc.
fast-forward to now, my relationship (which has always been good, but has had some things that needed to be worked through) is better than ever. we got engaged over the weekend, which although discussed vaguely in terms of “when”, was a major surprise to me. our wedding date is on Christmas of this year (we live in the south and will likely just have something at our house since everyone will be in town anyway).
anyway, thanks to everyone who has given me much-needed advice over the past year and a half 🙂

mrsziggy : yeah, I decided not to post anything because things were going really well in my relationship and I didn’t have any huge updates that y’all would care about lol! it’s easy to post the drama and frustrations, but when you’re happy and things are improving/going well it almost feels like there’s nothing to say, ya know?! 🙂
