- Wedding: September 2015
My bf and I will be dating 7years this September. As years have gone by, we starting thinking about the future. The conversations were all in good fun, pretty cute but we never actually worked on starting a future together. We recently started talking about marriage and have looked into our finances, and have spoken to our parents about marriage. I’ll be 22 in September and he’s 24. Yes, we’re young but we are mature, responsible and share the same morals and there’s no doubt we love and want to spend the rest of our lives together. Once engagement/marriage came in the picture, I like many other bees started getting super interested in rings, proposal stories, all that cute stuff. And of course there have been days where time and I were not on good terms! My bf said that a proposal should be happening by around this time next year, and I used to think that was so far away but I’m starting to be okay with it! I’m about a semester away from transferring as a junior in a university, my bf has a lot of school loans to start to pay of and he is going to continue his education. We have started saving money for a wedding, furthering our education, and finding a better job for me (My bf is lucky to be with a company where he can stay for the rest of his life if he chooses.) I know my bf said a year but 1-2.5 years seems fine with me (our wedding on our 10year anniversary sounds amazing) but I’ll keep that information to myself as long as he isn’t struggling an feeling pressured to save and buy a ring 😉
now thats my story, so have any of you bees since being given a proposal timeline, at first feel impatient but are now blissfully waiting?
