Hi everyone! I’ve been lurking the posts on here for about a month now but I finally decided to make an account because I finally got a timeline from my SO 😀 But first some backstory.
My SO and I are high school sweethearts and have been together for alittle over 5.5 years. We are madly in love and I have known that he is the one after dating for only about 4 months, even at the ripe old age of 15. Being that we did start dating so young we decided that we definitely wanted to get our Bachelors degrees before getting married. Well that time is slowly approaching as he is graduating this December and I’ll be graduating the next December. I’d love for us to be married in September of 2014 and I want to be engaged for 14 – 18 months. Well doing the math, that that would mean him proposing as early as March! Ever since I figured this out, I have not been able to stop thinking about getting engaged!!! I’ve read tons of these posts, looked at rings, and desperately tryed not to bring up these thoughts to my SO every moment of everyday!!!
I was terrified that I would have to wait another 5 years for anything to happen as he hasn’t mentioned anything about proposals or weddings happening any time soon and I was pretty sure he had even thought about getting engaged anytime soon because all he is focusing on is graduating. So I had this whole plan that in August I was gonna sit him down and have a talk about getting engaged just to make sure we’re on the same page in terms of when it will happen, hopefully by the start of summer 2013.
Well today he was over my house and I was asking him which of the events from my sister’s wedding he wanted to go to. That of course led to us talking about our own wedding, and such, and he said that he wanted us to sing a song at our wedding to which I replied that I would be so uncomfortable and awkward doing that. He replied, “well you have like 4 years until our wedding so maybe by then you’ll want to”.
Apparently my facial expression was pretty disgusted because he of course made fun of me for it. Thankfully though this lead to us having a timeline talk!! 3 months ahead of when I was patiently waiting to 😀 I told him that I really wanted us to be engaged by the beginning of next summer and I asked him if it scared him thinking about this happening so soon (though it is a year away…) He was quiet at first and started fiddling with stuff so I asked if he still wanted to get married right after college like we have talked about or if he wanted to “dick around first”. That defintely made him laugh and made him say “well I do like you alot… I guess next summer would work” Then we started talking about saving up and actual wedding dates!! 😀 AHHH so now my heart is beating like crazy and I’m so excited and giddy!!!
I just can’t believe that we just had a timeline talk about actually getting engaged and married!!! After more than 5 years together, it’s kinda surreal that it’s getting close to finally all happening!! Wow… I guess I’m now officially a “waiting bee”?? I like that! (haha although I know I’ll be tired of waiting in a few months).
I’m so sorry this turned out to be gigantic but I haven’t been able to talk to anyone about all this so I just kinda poored out everything. Thanks for reading!! I’m just so happy!!!
