Hello, I’m a new member here since my boyfriend is giving me hints! Me and my boyfriend have almost been dating for 5 months, but I’m so nervous cause’ he is giving me clues and hints that he is going to propose and since my head is filled up with stereotypes and the differences between my generation and the older generation before me I’m even more nervous with traditions etc etc ! (you know how it’s going in my head)
I’m 20 and ever since I met him, I knew I was going to marry him after literally 4 dates but recently he keeps hinting an engagement and I’m so nervous and excited because I don’t know how he’s going to ask my parents since they’ll probably freak out about the time we’ve been dating for but they don’t know our plans after I graduate and will hopefully be eloped to him 😀 My friends have had children early and then marriage after but with us it’s very different!
I’m even more scared/nervous/ all the feelings ever about him asking my parents because during the beginning of our relationship I was overwhelmed by the fact I knew that I was going to be with him for the rest of my life and got extremely overwhelmed which I hope my parents have forgotten because I was scared because it was just the beginning of our relationship blossoming! (I knew I was going to marry him but got overwhelmed on the phone to my parents!)
Have any other young couples gotten engaged early and have had a long engagement? (just need reassurance about the blessing and all that)
It’s a bit hard being 20 and knowing what you want in your life when it feels right too :)) also my parents love and approve of him!
