- Wedding: October 2015
Hi everyone! I just signed up to this thing because even though I’m not officially engaged yet, we’ve been talking about marriage for a WHILE now and I figured I’d start looking on websites like this. Well unfortunately my first post will be disucssing how impatient I am…. my guy and I have been best friends for 4 1/2 years, dating for 2 1/2 years, and living together for 2 years. We’ve had our ups and downs, troubles, etc etc like every couple does but for the most part we’re pretty much a perfect match. We’ve built a house together from the ground up and our relationship survived that! Lol Until about 6 months ago, he was reluctant about getting married only because it “scared” him he said. Not because he didn’t want to be my husband but because the thought of marriage was very intimidating, for whatever reason! About 5 months ago I found out he asked my dad for permission, inevertiently, because my stepmother was under the impression we were already engaged and she spilled the beans over dinner when we were visiting them …. then about 3 months ago he said that he was sorry it’s taken so long and he can’t wait for me to be his wife! I picked out a ring, and I’m about 99% positive he’s bought it, but still…. nothing. I’m just playing the waiting game, honestly I thought he was proposing about a year ago and that did not happen. So I’ve been patient for quite some time now and my patience is on it’s last limb!! I’m trying so hard not to ruin this because he wants it to be perfect and that’s precious to me…. but I feel like I’m getting annoyed with him over things that are stupid, I get impatient when I shouldn’t, and I get aggravated easily. If anyone has gone through this please give me some advice on being patient because I’m going nuts!
