- Wedding: September 2015
My boyfriend and I have been together for 6 years. We’ve both discussed getting married and we are both ready. He had told me his proposal idea is special to him and I respect that. I’ve never tried getting it out of him. In fact, about a month ago he said he was just going to tell me what it is so I can understand why I’m waiting. But I begged him not to because I know it’s special to him, so he didn’t tell.
Well, last night we got into another argument about it. And it’s really more me getting upset at him. I always feel terrible bringing it up too! You think I would learn… Eventually, during our heated discussion, he ended up telling me his whole idea. Not a big thing, but it’s a very simple idea. He basically said to me what he was planning on saying to me for the proposal but without the proposal part.
He’s not upset that he told me, he said it’s more about the words that he wanted to say to me and the feelings he wanted to convey. I keep apologizing though because I feel so bad! He says he has other ideas for proposing, but I still feel bad! I basically took his moment away but I really didn’t mean to and not what I was looking for. I was just frustrated again and wanted to talk it through with him.
Has this happened to anyone else? I want to make it better but don’t know how.
