- Wedding: September 2012
My bf and I have been discussing engagements and what we want in a wedding for awhile now. The other day we were walking home from my birthday dinner and I was talking about how I’m torn between going gangbusters on my legal career and aiming for the stars, or just settling for non-partner track and enjoying my free time. He stopped me and said, look: you have a golden opportunity here, and I’m not going anywhere unless you cast me aside, I’ll support you however you need, but don’t try to be the perfect girlfriend and give up on your career just to have more free time to spend with me…
I thought that was sweet.
Then, we were snuggling that night talking about our friends and he asked me in detail how my friends were proposed to, and whether they knew about it in advance, and then he told me what his friends did (he brought it up). He then also talked about names- like if girls get upgrades or downgrades when they marry- and he tested out my name with his last name. I’ve had the suspicion for awhile now that he is thinking about proposing…when he gets a job in NYC where he just moved, to move in with me.
Then…we usually watch Storibook weddings w/ Tori and Dean on Thursdays and all of a sudden he put headphones on and started cleaning the house instead of watching! Boo.
And, when he talked about getting a new job, he talked about buying a motorcycle…I couldn’t help but say “what?” But shut my mouth, because I was thinking…aren’t you supposed ot be thinking about buying something ELSE with all this engagement talk.
I think he doesn’t view these things as mutually exclusive, plus he is thinking of selling his car…maybet o buy me a ring? lol…
Ok so this isn’t really a question, more of a story- but thoughts are appreciated.
