So, my boyfriend is young, really young. He’s just about to turn 21 and I’m working on 25. Mathematically it’s not the biggest difference, but everyone who has survived their early 20’s understands what this age difference can mean. 🙂
Knowing this, I was planning on waiting at least another 3-4 years. Didn’t make me too happy, but hey, waiting a little for a great guy to grow into himself isn’t such a bad thing IMO.
However, he’s been surprising me lately with talking, on his own, about our future. Beyond just the, “When we have a house someday I want _______.”
He brought up on his own again today, that he is really hoping to get engaged before he moves from the west coast here with me to the east coast for school. We both understand there are no guarantees that he will be ready for an engagement after 2.5 years of dating, and if it doesn’t happen next summer I wont leave him. However, it’s really exciting that he’s starting to think and talk about the future like that.
He also asked me again about sapphires and if I would be disappointed with a sapphire instead of a diamond. I assured him I would not be disappointed at all! We chatted a bit more and he asked me again. “Are you sure you wouldn’t be disappointed with a sapphire instead of a diamond?” I assured him again that sapphires are great (great with my skin tone, still a decently hard stone etc) and then we briefly talked some more about rings. 😀
So, it will still be awhile but for some reason it’s still exciting!
