Hi bees! Nice to finally meet you all after lurking for many months now.
A little about my SO and myself:
We have been together almost 5 and 1/2 years. Starting dating March 10, 2007. I was 15 and 1/2 and he had just turned 17. High school sweethears with a little twist, we started out in an LDR! I lived in California and he lived (where we currently live) in Oregon. Fast forward through (almost) three years of lots of teenage emotions, ups and downs, phone and skype calls, I turned 18 in September and in December I moved the 500 miles to live with him!
This december we will have been living together for 3 years and I’m thinking enough is enough!
We have been talking about taking the next step of engagement for a while now, but I feel like I am just pushing him and pushing him about buying me a ring! All of my coworkers are saying “when’s the date?”, “are you guys ever going to commit?” And I think it makes him uncomfortable.
I understand where he comes from, he always tells me he wants to make it right and not settle because he only wants to do it once in his life (aw, and he is NOT a romantic guy lol!) and also because he doesn’t want to get married young and have, for lack of a better word, “haters” saying we will eventually get a divorce because we are too young and blah blah blah. Which I agree with. But come on, five and a half years?!
So I think we finally have come to an agreement, I have showed him some sweet moissy rings on moissaniteco, and I kind of gave him an ultimatum; if we haven’t made a concrete step towards an engagement by our 6th anniversary (March 2013) then we will have to have a serious discussion about where our future is going.
WHOO!! That was a mouthfull! Sorry for making it so long, but I know after lurking for a while you bees aren’t judgemental and (some) feel my pain!!! So I’m happy to be a part of the hive and can’t wait until I can say “yes” and start the planning!
