So the bf and I were just having a phone convo, as he is a couple hours away on business, and we were talking about the upcoming holidays. He and I are flying to our home state to visit family for the holidays and he will be meeting my extended family for the first time and I his. We’ve met parents and siblings already but I’m excited about showing him off to the relatives and I told him so haha. He’s been joking around saying he’s going to get me an ering and this morning he said, “I’m seriously considering it… I want everyone to know I’m in love.” Then he started talking about a friend of his who was an ordained minister in case I wanted to go home already married! haha! But, all of this lead to the most serious wedding talk we’ve had in a while. We basically planned our reception. And, the other night while I was fishing for xmas gift ideas, even though I already know what I’m going to get him for his main gift, he said, “I had an idea about what to get you but I’m not sure if it’s too much too soon.” I didn’t reply or fish for an answer because I don’t want to get my hopes up because as we have known each other for years we have only been officially dating for over five months and living with each other for three. I moved across the US for him. I’m ridiculously happy with my new life and all of the plans we’ve made so far. I know that if he were to propose around Xmas or so I would say YES! I just worry what other people would think I guess… Me being eight years younger than him, and the duration of our relationship. It just feels right you know?
I’m not getting my hopes up though. Just living in the moment and loving life. 🙂

Well good for you! You never know about what could happen. My Fiance and I did the same thing. He started to want to a plan a wedding to just a few short months into our relationship. We started dating in June 2009. Moved in together in September of 09 and then engaged in February 2010. I think that if he’s talking about it and mentioning it, then it’s probably going to happen soon! Yippie for you!

my fiance and i started dating when i was 20 and he was 21. we dated for three years before he proposed- but we really knew we wanted to get married after a few months. i always say if we had met when we were older we would have gotten engaged right when we knew 🙂
my mom and my dad are 8 years apart too!

Who cares what others say?! You’re happy, he’s happy and you both know what you want. When it’s right, it’s right!

Good for you!! I like how you’re just soaking in the good times now and being level-headed about pros and cons of getting engaged over the holidays. You and your bf sound really sweet together 🙂

Sounds awesome!! Don’t let what others say bother you… people are going to be people. They will have something to say about you no matter WHAT you do… gotta stick with what feels right for you!
My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I started dating on Dec 31st 2009, then moved in together the following May. We started talking about getting married around the end of Jan/ early February, I believe. We both knew right away that this was it for us… nothing wrong with that! We went looking at rings a few weeks before we moved in together. He just wanted to get an idea of what I like.. I told him that I wanted HIM to pick out my ring & I don’t want to see it before the propsal. He’s picked out a ring… I don’t think he has bought it yet though. Just waiting.. as patiently as I can, lol..
But yeah, if he’s bringing it up on his own without any prodding from you, that’s a huge sign to me!
