Oh my goodness, this post really hits home. Bf and I have been dating for 7 years, living together for 5 of those and we now have a beautiful bb. No sign of an engagement though.
Recently all his friends have got engaged/married, even more recently his twin sisters got engaged, one of whom has been with her fi less time than we have. It’s hard not to feel jealous esp as everything is now all wedding related when we got see his family.
He and I have had numerous conversations about it,this year alone, and every time we speak about it its like he is soothing me rather than reassuring me about it, cause when we discuss anything to do with a wedding (after another engagement get together) he has an excuse at the ready for why it won’t be anytime soon.
Iv all but given up on expecting an engagement (iv already told him I don’t want anything fancy or expensive, that I would even be happy enough without a ring as long as we were engaged and I also don’t want a big wedding). So iv told him if it doesn’t happen by the time I’m 30 (2years time) then not to bother asking me and I’m changing our kids names to a double barrel name. Don’t think he fully believes on this.
