Hi everyone! I’m new here and just wanted to introduce myself and share where I am in the waiting process so you can all get to know me.
My boyfriend and I have been together for nearly a year, which isn’t that long in the grand scheme of things, but we have talked about engagement and how we are both ready to commit to each other. We are in our late 20’s and knew what we were looking for when we got together and have been living together for a few months now – and it has been absolutely wonderful! While we’ve had several discussions about our ‘dream wedding’, or the type of future we imagine for ourselves, I’ve mostly tried to keep quiet about it and not pressure him. He’s been hinting about making a ‘big purchase’ soon and asked my ring size so I know that it is coming! Last night we were laying on the couch watching tv and he sat straight up and kind of sheepishly asked if I knew what I wanted the diamond to look like, that he had read on the internet about how he should ask the woman if she had a preference, and asked if I knew about all of the different cuts like princess and cushion. I stifled my giggling as best as I could – he was being so adorable! I have never been the type to daydream about a specific type of ring and I told him that i’m fine with any of the more common cuts (anything round, square, or rectangular) and he said “Oh good, I already have my eye on one so I was hoping that it would fit with what you wanted”. We just went back to watching tv then, but inside, I was jumping up and down and doing my yippee-dance!!
I’m so excited to finally join all of you here on the waiting boards!
