- Wedding: August 2012
Hello! I’ve been reading Weddingbee’s blog for about a year now, the boards for about 6 months, and have finally grown the you-know-whats to actually create an account and introduce myself. 🙂 I’m Lindsay, 23 years old, and I’m a “Lady in Waiting”. The man and I have been dating close to 4 years and 4 months now.
A little background: About 3 1/2 years ago the man and I talked about our future and when we saw ourselves getting married. He told me that he wanted to wait 4 years, until he was finished with school and started a career, before we get engaged. Years had passed, and nothing more was said besides the typical “Wouldn’t my left hand look pretty with a ring on it?” conversations that always ended in him saying that he wasn’t financially ready to marry me and that he wanted to wait until he graduated. Fast forward to a year ago to when I first found this website. (In all honesty, I was getting antsy for a proposal when one of my good friend got engaged after only dating her beau for a year) I was googling weddings when I stumbled on this website. Seeing as how we talked about getting engaged in 4 years, 3 1/2 years ago, I figured I’d seriously bring it up when he graduated from college in December of last year as opposed to the casual jokes about my left hand. About a month earlier than that was our 4 year anniversary. Instead of asking him about the future, I told him (yes, I actually TOLD him!) that I see us engaged within 6 months and that if he didn’t propose to me, I was planning on asking him. He told me that he would ask me before I had the chance to ask him.
So (this is a long introduction, I apologize), I’m waiting. I do know that he has bought the ring, and I’ve seen it. I just don’t know when he’s going to ask me. In all reality, he has until May, but 3 more months of waiting just seems so long! In the meantime, I hope that Weddingbee keeps me distracted, or at least helps time go by quicker!
So, that’s my story so far. Hello everyone!
