- Wedding: October 2013
Hello ladies. Sorry for the long first post, but I just need to get it out and I don’t really have anyone in real life to tell.
I’m new to the Bee, but I’ve been lurking for ages. My boyfriend and I have been together 3 1/2 years, living together for 2 1/2. We’re 27 & 28. We’ve had a wonderful relationship. We’ve talked about marriage for the past couple of years, made wedding plans, and we recently bought a house together in the spring. He told a friend that he was planning to officially propose at after we closed on the house, but then it didn’t happen. He showed me a picture of the ring he had chosen a year and a half ago and I’ve been waiting.
We had begun planning for a date this November together, but then he got a serious case of cold feet in June and wanted to take a little time to make sure he was ready. That was really hard for both of us. Just emotionally devastating. But we’ve gotten back to where we were as a couple. Recently he’s started telling me he’ll propose ‘soon.’ and that he still is thinking of getting married in November, and asking for my ring size.
Also we have a vacation in two weeks that falls over on my birthday, where we’re thinking of heading to Singapore to explore and visit with some of his extended family. I think he’s planning to propose then. A couple of weeks ago he said, “Well we have our engagement coming up where do you want to go?” I pretended I hadn’t heard and asked him to repeat himself and he said, “Oh, just wondering where you wanted to go for our vacation next month.”
Anyway Bees, I’m just finding it hard to get through (hopefully) these last few weeks of waiting, and trying to make tentative plans since November is so close now and there’s nothing definite yet and we’ve have to hit the ground running with planning. I’m nervous and exited.
