Long time lurker but new bee! So my bf and I have been dating for 1 year and 6 months. We are both 26. We both agree we are definitely wanting to get married but it has also been in future tense. Recently we had several big discussions about our future (not unusual at all) and talked about when we wanted to live together! We aren’t in a rush since his lease isn’t up until next year and mine is open ended but we both agreed and we want to start preparing. A few months ago we were watching How I met your mother and Robin said “every woman knows her ring size” and he asked mine with a sheepish grin on his face! Sadly I do not know my size so I couldn’t tell him but he just came right out and jumped on the opportunity to ask. I died with excitement because I had not mentioned anything and he obviously really wanted to know.
Then the other day he said that he wanted to ask me something and I said ok (and got super nervous) and he asked that when we get engaged did I want a ring. He was so sweet and said he wanted my real answer because he was raised in a religion that doesn’t do jewelry but he doesn’t agree and he likes jewelry, and wanted to know honestly if I wanted a ring. I told him yes. I am very sentimental so I would adore wearing something he chose just for me to symbolize our love. I am very much a tom boy minimal make up kind of girl but I like traditional things and I always dreamed of a proposal and being married.
I am so excited I can hardly contain it!
