- Wedding: October 2013
I’m so glad I found somewhere that I can vent and share all my feelings!
I’m not engaged yet. My boyfriend and I have been dating just shy of a year (October 14!). Things have moved pretty quickly in this relationship, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
We met through a mutual friend. I just purchased my first home in September 2009. I invited a few friends over to share my first night in my big empty house. My one friend, S, asked if he could bring a few friends with him. Sure, why not!? The more the merrier! He brought J (My boyfriend) and I was immidiately attracted to him.
We hit it off and swapped phone numbers. We have been insperable ever since. He started spending more and more time at my house. He had some clothes here, and I even got him a toothbrush! In December, we discussed him moving into the house with me. At first, I had reservations. I didn’t want him to “Use” me just because I had a house. I was able to share these feelings with him. Those feelings quickly faded when he replied “I’m the man, I’ll take care of you” And he promptly started paying ALL the bills by himself. I offered to go half, he wouldn’t hear of it.
And it’s been that way ever since. I was very surprised at how well we lived together. It was like we had been married for 20 years.
I’ve come to be very close with his family, as he is with mine. The other night, we were sitting at the dinner table and his Grandmother called. J has one of those phones that is ridiculously loud and you can clearly hear the person on the other line. Well, I hear “J just let me know what day you want me to take you to go look at the rings for A!” I about choked on dinner!! J replied back with an uncomfortable “Uhhhhh, Grandmom, I’ll talk to you about that later” But it was no use, the huge grin on my face gave it away that I knew.
So J finally told me that yes, he’s going to look at rings. His exact words were “I’m gettin ready to propose and I know exactly how I want to do it!”
EEEEK!!! So now, it’s all I can think about. I don’t want to keep bugging him about it, because obviously it would be nice to be surprised. But I just can’t stop thinking about when it’s going to happen and it’s driving me nuts!!
Thanks for listening to this long diatribe. Any advice?!
