- Wedding: March 2015
Hello! I am new to the site. I am soon to be engaged. I only know because after looking at rings and talking about it he had me pick one out and had it ordered this past weekend. but here is where my issue is. we have been together almost 8 years, we have two kids together and have thrown around the idea of marriage for a while but he never seemed ready. just recdntly it has been bothering me that we have been together for so long and still nothing. I had expressed my feelings and we had a long talk. At first he seemed like he wasnt sure, so I left him go. this past weekend I stated I wanted to go to the jewelry store look to at earings and he said well and found my ring finally four hours later. here is my issue. u feel like because I picked it out and know that its happening very soon, its like I sold myself short. like I should have just let him do it on his own. but he insisted that I pick it out because he wanted to make sure I got what I wanted. im not sure if he is going to actually propose or what, but I just feel really weird about how this all played out. dont get me wrong, I want noyhing more than to be engaged and sometime in 2015 marry my best friend. im just so confused , like did I pressure him. will I have an type of engagement story? I think I am just worried about what others think and I shouldnt. I know he is starting to like the idea of being engaged and planning a wedding. he has thrown some ideas out there and gave me input showing that he wants part in planning and everything. I dont know,i guess I am just confused about everything. sorry if I sound like I am babbling. is it common for girls to pick their ring out nowadays and basically know they are soon to be engaged? or am I the only one that picks out their ring and knows that its coming? lol.
