I’m sorry you have more school to do. I’m sure you are at the point of just being exhausted and done. School sucks!

I wouldn’t lose all hope for a summer proposal. There’s no reason he can’t propose a little earlier than your year timeframe. You’ll just be engaged a little bit longer. Think of it as some extra time to plan. In fact, I think it would make it easier to stay afloat with this extension of you LDR. Something to hold on to, ya know?

Yes proposals are surprises, but maybe it would be ok to tell him “Honey…please. please don’t make me wait until December to get engaged. I don’t care when you do it (Ha I know that’s not true lol) but, it’s breaking my heart to have to extend our LDR.”

Perhaps something like that would work. You know how to talk to your guy, so say how it will work for him.

On another note. If you do have to wait until December, Valhalla forbid, we will be getting engaged in the same month. Yay us? <— a little sarcasm. πŸ™‚

I think that in long-run this will be a fantastic thing! It sounds like it will really make a difference to your career and I would bet that, from what he said, you won’t be waiting until december for a proposal…

I think this extra time will seem like a blip on the radar when you look back on things . . . really, it will fly by!  I know it’s difficult, but as you said, you are doing the smart thing.  And it’s not like your tacking on extra *years* or anything, just a few months . . . and your earnings will be fabulous and totally worth it.  In the end you are building a better foundation for your family and I”m sure your guy understands that — he seems to be on the same page with you!

As has been said before, a few more months doesn’t really matter in the long run πŸ™‚

Is your Boyfriend or Best Friend completely opposed to the idea of having a 16-month engagement? That would mean a few more months to plan and save up money, so I don’t see how that would be a bad thing πŸ™‚

I’m sorry – I know how hard the waiting is but do not mess up your career just to get engaged sooner!

After you do get engaged, all that waiting will be a blur and you’ll be happy that you have those certifications and a higher earning potential.

Hang in there!

@Torrid: Just a question… why can’t you just get your degree, then do the 1 month course? Why do you have to do it through the university and take an extra year?

It does sound like a summer proposal though πŸ™‚

@Torrid: No, 4 months isn’t too bad, and I think you’ll be engaged sooner anyways, but I just thought I would ask. Good luck!!
