So it is our anniversary this weekend. We are celebrating 4 years together and to top it all off, it is a long weekend here, so we are staying overnight in the city and going out to a fancy dinner.
Normally I am just so excited to be celebrating another milestone with him but I just feel a bit blah about the whole thing. Of course I am looking forward to going out to a lovely dinner and spending time together, but I have resigned myself to the fact that it just wont be happening on our anniversary this time around.
I was so certain a while back that this was when he would ask me and given conversations recently, I know it wont be, so its just dissapointing.
I just have to try and be excited to be celebrating another year as his girlfriend 🙂

@CupcakeLove: We’re coming up on four years in December and I’ll probably feel the same way. Hope you have a good 4th annivarsary! 🙂

Don’t be blue. He might have got your hopes down so that he can really surprise you. And if he doesn’t just think about it as a stress free weekend. (Just to let you know I’m crossing my fingers he asks soon).

My four year was last February. Try not to be disappointed and just have a woonderful time! 🙂 It will remind you why you want to marry him in the first place.

Celebrate your anniversary – so what if it is once again as his girlfriend? You have a partner you want to spend your life with and are happy! You will look back when you are married and be proud of yourselves for dating so long before getting married (I firmly believe some people rush into it)
Have a great night, and you may just be surprised! 😉

Awww…Im sorry you’re feeling this way! But I totally understand, SO and I have only been together 1.5 years and I will be feeling the same way if we are not engaged by our 2yr anniversary! Try to enjoy the weekend!!

First and foremost, congratulations on your anniversary! Four years together is something to celebrate. It’s natural to feel the pang of dissappointment because *it* won’t be happening, but never lose sight of the big picture: another year with the love of your life. I hope you two have a blast this weekend

Hi All – thanks for the encouragement. We did have a great night out – a fantastic dinner and wandering around our city which we hardly ever get to do anymore! Yes, there was no engagement, but as I said I certainly wasn’t surprised by that!
He did make me remember exactly why I love him though – he came home from work with flowers even though we said no gifts, and when our first choice of a restaurant stuffed us around he got really upset because he had gone through so much effort trying to get in there. He is just a sweet, caring, loving boy who I am lucky to have!
It was upsetting when talk did (naturally – I swear I didn’t bring it up!) turn to engagement and I realised just how far away we are from that… but I guess I need to build a bridge and get over it because the lack of engagement doesn’t mean he loves me any less… it just means there are some hurdles in the way at the moment.
