hi girls! i’m new on this site, and after reading some of your posts, i decided to introduce myself (so as not to seem like a creeper).
so, i’m also a waiting bee :/
my SO and i have been dating for two years now, and have moved in together earlier this summer. prior to moving in together, we had been dating long distance. we have kind of a unique history:
we started dating six years ago when we met in college, but then we broke up for about two years with minimal contact as he graduated and moved away. two years later, we met up again and instantly connected! we decided to get back together even though we were going to be in a LDR for another two years as he finished grad school.
FINALLY he moved back to my town and we decided to move in together in the condition that we will get engaged within a year of living together.
so that’s where i am now! i definitely thought i’d be able to hold out a whole year without being engaged, but it’s actually really hard. i see my friends getting engaged all around me to people they’ve been dating for far less time, and i always wonder why my SO is holding out.
i know that it’s not because of financial reasons or because of some ‘big ticket’ issues (we are the same religion, our families love us and each other, we have the same goals in life, no debt, etc.) which makes it even harder to wait!
we’ve talked about it a lot (i know, i know, i should do a shut-it pact…) and i know he wants to marry me, but i’m going nuts!!!
so that’s where i am now haha. sorry for the megalong post… just wanted to tell you that there is yet another girl in the same situation as all you guys!
