Omg it has finally happened. My BF of almost 7 years has finally asked me to marry him for real! We have been going together since junior year of high school, and living in sin (lol) for over 4 years. We had one falling out 6 months after we started living together for a month but since then have been going strong. He has welcomed my ailing father into our home and makes me laugh everyday.
So here’s how it goes:
I had my suspicions that he was going to propose sometime close to Christmas. This past year I really started getting serious about getting married and he would usually change the subject instantly saying “I’m gonna marry you someday”. Then he started to pay attention when I would bring up the subject about rings and things.
The day after Christmas we met with his parents for breakfast. A local craft store was having a big sale on Christmas decor and we wanted a new village piece. After breakfast we headed toward to craft store and as we are pulling up he instead turns into the parking lot of the jewlery store and says “will you marry me?” I thought he was joking and was waiting for him to pull out of the lot (cruel joke I know) but he was serious. Parked the car and got out. I’m sitting in the car like, he’s serious, omg this is happening. Of course I said yes. We are went in and chose a simple solitaire we could afford. I love it.
My family already knew about the whole thing so I was surprised and they are happy.
No date has been set but we are planning for summer 2016. Seems like forever, but we need time to save some cash for the whole thing.
It hasn’t really hit me yet but I hope that it will soon after trying on a few dresses and stuff .
