Comments (for longer story if you wish): been with SO for 6 years. two years ago his job moved him and he asked me to leave my job, move cities and live with him- naively i did – on the condition we’d be married within two years. two years later i don’t even have a ring. unfortunately i haven’t coped with this very well and have displayed every single distressing symptom of the agony of waiting (arguments, the why questions, self-doubt, insecurities, self-blame, self-pity, the secret crying, the uncontrollable crying, the jealousy, the shame – and the torture of knowing that all these outbursts only make it harder for him to ask me to be his forever) i love him though. nice to know theres a few girls waiting with me.
