- Wedding: June 2014
Ladies, and any gentlemen who happen to be on this board, I just need some words of wisdom , if you would be kind enough to share. I’ve been in a long distance relationship for about a year now. We hit it off really well, and have had 2 face to face meetings. Our relationship is pretty innocent, as in we hold hands, and hug, and kiss goodbye at the airport.
During my visit I ended up meeting his parents, and sister. We touched base on a pretty serious topic, making the relationship work. One of us will eventually have to move closer, as I live on the East coast and he’s in the West. I was all ready preparing for this conversation, and am pretty happy to see him bring it up even though his mom originally pointed it out to him.
So here I am planning to move a year from now to be with him. While we were talking he said it made him feel more determined to finish college and get a job (he’s almost done). This to me is a pretty heavy topic, but now I am wondering how do I go about bringing up possibly engagement??
Call me old fashion, but a part of me doesn’t want to move in with him unless I have an engagement ring on my finger. I’m just not sure how to approach the topic. We have both all ready met one another’s families. And I LOVE his family, I think they are all really nice and fun to be with. Everything seems to be going good, I just don’t want to ruin this by bringing up the subject in a brash way that may scare him off. He’s pretty shy, and has neve rbeen in a relationship before so even being this far along is very new to him. Thanks for reading, and I apologize for being a little sloppy in my writing.
