SO & I (together a little over 1.5 years) just recently started touching on the subject of the future in the last 3 or 4 months. We haven’t gone into much detail and hadn’t discussed a timeline. I’ve mostly just left the topic alone for now just to give him time and space.
He visited his family for Christmas …& got back today. Tonight at dinner, he told me his family was asking him a lot about what was in store for us, if we were going to take the next step, etc. He told them he was planning on it within the year …sometime in 2013.
I kept my cool and remained calm. But inside, I was dying and wanted to squeal. I mean ..I was a tiny bit hopeful it would happen in 2013, but now I know it will. And he was actually the one to bring it up! He rarely initiates talks about marriage.
And now that I know it’s coming in the somewhat near future, I feel like I can look at rings & start financially planning without feeling guilty or like a crazy ass chick.
Great start to the new year! Progress!
