The Boy was laid-off earlier in the year. This after we already made the decision to move-in together and were looking for places. We found our very nice place and then he got laid off. Great.
Finally, he was able to get something else, however he was told last week that they might be laying people off. Well, when he came home last night, guess who had been laid off? 🙁
I’m not as bummed about it delaying a possible proposal, as just bummed that it happened now — right before the holidays, right before a bunch of stuff. And, yea okay, it also means no ring anytime soon.

(Hugs) I am sorry. I know through experience how tough this is. The two of you will get through it and appreciate each other more. I know that’s what happened to M and I

I’m sorry that he was laid off again. You guys will be able to make it through and I’m sure he will get the perfect ring for you later!

*hugs* would you be okay with a proposal with *the* ring? Could you do a stand-in ring til he gets back on his feet job-wise? You’ll get through this, I promise, it might just take a little longer. And it gives you practice for the “for poorer” and “for worse” on your vows!

I am sorry to hear that. With any luck your Boyfriend or Best Friend will be able to find something else quickly. We are in a recession but as long as you two stick with it…you will have your time.

I am so sorry to hear that. This time of the year is hard, and so many people are getting laid off. It will all work out, just stay possitive! 🙂

I am sorry that you guys are going through this. I was laid off last December and didnt find a job until this August. All the while the Boyfriend or Best Friend was there for me and we got through it, you guys will make it through it. It will bring you closer.
When its time for the ring he will get it for you dont worry.
I hope everything turns out well.

Ohhh Curly that’s awful!! so sorry to hear the bad news 🙁 layoffs before the holidays are the worst!! but it seems like your Boyfriend or Best Friend is super marketable and bounced back quickly from the first tiime he was laid off, so hopefully his second unemployment period will be short!

I’m sure it will be okay, but it just kind of sucks.

Curly, I am sorry to hear that! ((Big Hugs)) to you! I totally know how you feel! My Boyfriend or Best Friend was laid off 2x this year too! However, he bounced back quicker than I could have imagine…one week. Just continue being the supportive Girlfriend and it will happen; this is the time that really counts in your relationship the hard times. I am wishing (and praying) that everything works out for you and your Boyfriend or Best Friend.
