WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): have an honest conversation with your SO about your future, ask about his 1,5 and 10 year plans. If it is clear that you are in them – stop talking about it. If you are not and you would like to be, take him at his word and get really honest with yourself about whether thats ok with you.

Comments (for longer story if you wish): SO and I were set up by a friend of his – when he first asked me out, I said no. Our “first date” happened because I booty called him a couple weeks later and gave him a long speech about how I would never date him but we could be friends with benefits…but then we spent everyday together for almost 2 months and realized there was more to it. I’m so glad I gave him a second chance!
