Congratulations!  I know the feeling exactly cause the first time my bf said it (actually he texted it to his mom) I almost lost it!

 

I think its really important to be honest with each other and make sure you discuss the “non negioiables”.  I’ve found while the bf and I plan for this big step the more we communicate about out hopes and deams the easier the conversations get.  Some things you have no idea are actually that big of a deal, and others are.  I just think the more you talk the better off you’ll be!

Honest and open communication is the best way to go. I think you’ve got to figure out what kind of things are important to you first and then you can bring them up with your SO. I think it’s great that you recognize that you have things you need to talk about before getting engaged. I think you should bring them up at appropriate times though. I wouldn’t put them in a long laundry list, but I would discuss them as they come up naturally. You don’t want to make your SO feel too overwhelmed!

Getting married is a big deal! It’s logical that you would feel freaked out by it. I think that’s why it’s such a good idea to talk about it andn know that as a couple, marriage is the goal. Having time to wrap your mind around it and decide that yes, this is my future husband, is a very important thing. Let the dust settle and have solid conversations together about your future together. It will make you feel more confident moving forward. Oh…and congrats 😉
