@Genuine513: But then a Freshman could be any age, depending on the school? How very strange. Interesting though.

@VickyAurea:

Freshman is typically grade 9, sophomore 10, junior 11, senior 12. This can be complicated by some colleges/universities using the same system, although mine used the terms first year, second year, etc.

@VickyAurea: No, as Taylor4 said, Freshman is grade 9, sophomore 10, junior 11, senior 12. If the school has grade 8 I think they either call them freshman aswell or maybe something different.

I went to elementary from K-7 then went to a highschool that was 8-12, at the end of grade 9 I moved to a different town and started grade 10 at a highschool at only does 10-12. It was really great because everyone was switching out of middle school at the same time I switched out my old highschool.

NEW BEE ALERT! So I have been lurking around the boards for a couple of months now, but this thread finally convinced me to sign up! 

I have been with my SO for close to 7 years. We met in college when I was 19 and he was 20. The plan was to get engaged by the end of the year but he has since pushed that to by summertime. He knows I would love a fall of 2012 wedding which now seems like it will not be possible. The other night he asked if I would be interested in a spring of 2013 wedding. This was a huge bummer! By then we will have been dating for 8.5 years and be nearing 28 and 29, ugh!! It is hard because it is just not what I envisioned. 

With all that said, I plan to use this board to get me through my waiting journey! So excited to be a part of the group!

@Waitingtobee…: Welcome!

I’ve been with my BF for over 7 1/2 years now. We’re both 21 (nearly 22) and we started seeing each other just after my 14th birthday.

I don’t think I really started ‘waiting’ though until this past year when he spent a year working as part of his university course. The first thing he did was buy himself an expensive computer! So I started to wonder whether he might put away any of his earnings for a ring for me…  From things he’s said though, (don’t want to go into too much detail) I don’t think he has a ring fund. He could just be saying it so it’s a bigger surprise, but from the conversations we’ve had about marriage, I know he wants to get married in the next couple of years, but I really don’t think he’s been thinking about asking me in the immediate future. I’m expecting he’ll ask around winter 2012-13 when he’s been working for a few months.

I could be here a while! 😉

SO and I have been together for 6 years and 2 1/2 months – but I’ve only been actively waiting for about half of that.

@Audrey2: Lol Most 21 year old guys I know don’t have a tomorrow fund, never mind a ring fund, money management isn’t most guys strong point. Pruchaseing a new computer sounds like a typical 21 year old thing to do lol (My Fiance did the same thing). My guess if he does buy you a ring now, it will be on credit or it will be several years before he has one for you. My Fiance never had a ring fund, we (yes, we) just ended up having enough money when the time came around that he wanted to propose.

@Genuine513: Actually, my BF is really savvy about finances! He even has an ISA. The computer was definitely a splurge, but in fairness to him he does Computer Science so it was for his work and he could afford it. I would say the least likely thing would be for him to buy a ring on credit! And I would be more than happy to help pay for the ring 🙂

@Audrey2: Haha, not in a crazy way (as I now realise that sounded) but it is nice to know there’s someone just like me out there that I have random things in common with 🙂

Hi I’m new here…and i’m so glad about this thread, i’ve been reading through this with bleary eyes.

My SO and i will have been together 8 years in January and like many of  ou all I have had is promises. We were at uni together, have lived in and out of each others pockets, lived the other side of the world for 6 months, and have seen both good and bad times.

We have plenty of friends get engaged, some of whom we knew their previous fiance as a couple, before their current one!

I’m starting to get to the point where I love him very much, but get so frustrated. Our most recent engagement was for a couple we know who have been together for 8 months! Those of you who are with me will totally agree – how unfair is that?!

He says that marriage isn’t important for him but knows that it is important to me, and then tells me that i’m being childish when I get upset.

 

I don’t know what to do?! Anyone else in the same situ?

 

thanks E x
