- Wedding: October 2012
I’m going to try my hardest to keep this short (I doubt it will be though, apology in advanced.) Boyfriend or Best Friend is in the Navy. We met online, and things have kinda moved fast. He told me he loved me after a month and half, after 3 months, when I got my own apartment, he “moved in” with me. And by that, he never left after he helped me move, and more and more of his stuff just kept seeping into my apartment. I felt exasperated (more annoyed, happy, and anxious in one single swoop) one day when I came home & his nice flat screen tv is sittingly happily on my entertainment center, and moved my old box tv to the closet.
Anyway, I love him to pieces. (and I’ll throw it out there, he is 28, I’m 23. So we are young, though this isn’t my first time around the rodeo). But I knew about 2 months into dating him that I wanted to marry him. Crazy. I NEVER wanted marriage in my future, but I met this man, and he just seems right. I can’t imagine my life without him now.
Now too the military part. All too often, I find myself an emotional wreck because I think about him leaving when he’s up at this duty station. I find it hard to give him all my trust & all my love because he will have to leave one day. I tell myself just enjoy now. Better to have loved & lost then not at all they say?
I was helping Boyfriend or Best Friend out, he got promoted, and need some patches on his uniform, so I got too it sewing on patches to his gear. We were talking casually, about him doing ship duty, and I told him when that time comes I would wait for him. He told me that if I would do that for him, he would marry me before that time came.
He went home for his brother’s wedding a month ago, and after the wedding text me, “When we get married, Elvis is doing it because at least he’s done it so much, he isn’t going to forget his lines.”
Point 3, we were talking about friends getting married, and in a joking fashion he said, “I still think we should go to Vegas and let Elvis marry us.”
Point 4, Just this past weekend, he said he was going to start working on his officer package (for promotion), and he was giving me all the details about what it entailed. I asked him if he wanted it (really wanted to be an officer, because he is still kinda unsure what he wants out of the military). He told me, not if it meant losing me. I told him, don’t let anyone stop him from his goals in life but he needed to be prepared that if he did get officer, that he was going to be putting alot more time in (in the military). He nodded and said, you could come travel all over the world with me. And I told him, you know I would like that.
So I HOPE that I am waiting. There have been other times, marriage has been discussed, but these are the times that I really remember. Oh, THANKS for listening!
