I know I’m a newbie on this site, but finding everyone here has been a huge help in calming my worried little brain.
Me and my SO have been together 5 1/2 years now, 2 of which we were in a long distance relationship. Now, Don’t get me wrong, I love this guy to bits, He’s my best friend, supportive, helpful around the house, Loves my family like his own (and they love him).
Heres the rub though, the poor sweet guy is CLUELESS. Marriage is not high on his list, for many reasons, but he knows how important it is for me, and my family, and has even admitted that he’d love to have a commitment ceremony for the two of us. He’s even (kind of, sort of) jokingly asked me before if I wanted to marry him (YES!! YES YES OF COURSE!!) on several occasions. Now he’s just gotta, well, ask for real.
I thought it was going to happen this christmas (nope), then Possibly new years (nope). Now, I’m waiting for Summer, Hoping it will be my birthday in mid-August, which co-incides with a huge event we’ve been planning on going to for months with our closest friends (who would probably make up most of our bridesmaids and groomsmen if we decided to go that route.) Hoping its going to be HIS birthday just a couple weeks later (maybe?), as we’ve been working on a big party with the band he plays in. In October on our 6 year anniversary, surrounded by my family? A girl can hope right?
It’s been bittersweet lately, because I’ve found out that a couple of those close girlfriends of mine, after short relationships (Some as short as just a few months), are engaged, got married, or are having babies (not that I want kids anytime soon but still). It stings. He and I have talked about this, and again, he knows I want this, he expressed wanting it too.
So here I am, A short, alternative red-head who found her Tall, Dark and Handsome…now I just have to wait. And while I’m frustrated with waiting, I know he’ll figure it out, and the wait will be so worth it! Reading other stories helps, makes me cry, and makes me super jelous of those goregeous rings!!
Thanks Everyone 🙂
