- Wedding: October 2013
Hello bees! I’m new to these parts!
My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been dating for a year now (October 14th is the actual date, so almost!) We actually moved in together after about a month of dating. I own my house, he was staying the night every night anyway, and he said “I don’t want you to feel like I”m using you, so do you think I should move in and start paying the bills?” And that was that! We have been insperabale ever since!
We started talking about marriage and a family at about 6 months. We even looked a rings! I even overheard a conversation he was having with his Grandmother about a ring for me! I got so excited thinking he was going to propose sometime soon, but turns out he was just talking about a “Pre-engagment ring” I was dissapointed, but at least it was a step in the right direction!
Well, I still haven’t gotten the pre e-ring yet. No biggie though! The thing is, my Boyfriend or Best Friend has indicated that he doesn’t even want to get ENGAGED until he’s got his career started. This has me all kinds of upset because, while I understand that from a repsonsibility point of view, he has an excellent job now…He’s a Formeman for a very sucessful Landscaping company. AND I would like to have a semi- long engagement. Like at least a year. But he’s just enrolled in a 2 year program for Criminal Justice, and wants to become a County cop, which is going to take some time.
So I know it’s going to be at least 2 years before we get engaged. I’m secretly hoping that he’ll change his mind, and at least propose sometime in the near future. Is anyone else in my situation??? How do you deal?!?
