Hello bees! I have been reading the boards on this site for a very long time (especially the Waiting Forums). My boyfriend and I are in our late 30s and have been together for nearly 5 years. This will be the 2nd marriage for both of us. My boyfriend was very slow moving and had to overcome a lot of issues with regards to his prior relationship. But I am glad I was patient and we took our time as I have enjoyed our relationship flourising the way it has.
I knew he had the ring and that it was coming. He called me when I got home from work and asked me to meet him at one of our favorite local restaurants. He met me at the door, and took me to a table in the back where there was a beautiful bouquet of flowers. I noticed our favorite band was playing, he asked the bartender to put the CD on repeat :).
He told me that I changed his entire life and that he only wished he met me sooner. He almost cried! He put the ring on my finger and I’m like … um you didn’t ask me anything lmao! He said it was too late the ring was on there 🙂 He asked and of course I said yes!
Anyway, I just wanted to share my story. I’m so happy and look forward to wedding planning!
