I cannot believe I actually registered for this site. I have been following waiting stories for well over a year now. I have been with my bf for almost 4 years and living for one in a house that we bought. Our firstyearhouseanniversary just passed in fact. Tried to convince him that this warranted a gift and made him feel bad for half a second.
Like many others I think the biggest holdup seems to be money and the fact that I bring things up too often. He was married before and has two boys who are here every second weekend and a day in the week. (read- broke from support)
I do not think he understands time. Is it wrong that I want to have a few less wrinkles in wedding pics? Is that vain? 🙂 He is the only person out of all that I have dated that I actually wanted to marry, and I do not think he can fully grasp how significant that is to me and how special that makes him. Our 4 year anniversary is coming up in May (May the Fourth be with you)… yeah.. I know… and I truly hope I am not waiting beyond that date. But then I wonder, what else do I have to obsess over and indulge in self-pity over? I am sure I will find something.
Not sure how much you can glean from this post really, but a short intro is better than no intro at all right?
Anywhoooooooo I am glad I finally joined. Just hoping against any “attacky” posts… I am sensitive one!

Welcome!! I joined last week (but have been very busy since!) So much to learn and discuss here 🙂 From my experience, LOTSA very nice ladies here.
I loved reading your post. Hoping you get a proposal soon!!
I’m in waiting too, well kinda. SO and I actually chose the ring together a few weeks ago and have ordered it, just waiting now… Thanks to this board, I am keeping myself sane. The anticipation is exciting but hard at the same time!

@Schmoobee: Hi! Are we twins? Been with my Boyfriend or Best Friend in 4 yrs and just celebrated our living together anniversary a couple days ago! Mine also has been married before and has a child, and his hold up is $. I have tried the “Honey, my ability to look good in a wedding dress and pictures is starting to decline” reasoning with him before. Hehe. Welcome!!!

@phoenix718: You’ve actually told him that was the reason? Good one! He would probably give me some “you always look good” retort, although I think I mentioned something about broken hips due to sponge bones!
@minie77:Thanks! there certainly is! Count yourself among the fortunate in that the ring is ordered so no going back now (okay one could butyou know what I mean:)), it is only a matter of time. I have toyed with tearing open Visa bills to see if he charged anything significant:)
Thanks everyone for all the welcome messages.
Wow, I’m impressed I figured out that @ thing. Learning how to navigate things.. I’m like is there some gallery of Weddingbee cuteness where people get sweet muffin and kitty avatars or are these from personal stock haha.

@Schmoobee: Yup, I like to throw out the lighthearted zinger here and there. I think he did say something to the effect of “please, you’ll always look good.”
