- Wedding: October 2011
I have been MIA for a couple weeks. As some might know, I am currently living in my BFs home country, working remotely for a US company. I went back home for a couple weeks in early September. My job basically told me I will need to come back to the states in March. I think the trip away from my Boyfriend or Best Friend (leaving him to fend on his own after having his woman take care of his every need for several months ;)) and also having a clear cut time line of when I need to go back (meaning we cannot keep dawdling and just living together w/no commitment forever), made him wise up to a few things.
Since I got back, we have had some really productive talks, looked at rings online, and discussed the possibility of him coming back to the US with me on a fiance visa! Nothing is written in ink YET….but I feel like we are making major progress. Awhile ago, he would not even consider it. He used to say that he felt we shouldn’t just get married for the visa. I agreed, but I always felt like, if we wanted to get married eventually anyway, we might just have to speed up the process for immigration purposes. Now that he realizes just how real it is that I will be going back, and faced with the possibility of being without me, he has told me that, although it might happen a bit sooner than he would have ideally liked, he really wants to be with me and is willing to speed up the process a little bit for that reason 🙂 I’m crossing my fingers it all works out!
