- Wedding: June 2011
I’m trying to get my brain to shut up, but it won’t listen. Tomorrow me and my bf are going for a city minibreak. Some of you may have seen me mention it in other threads; it will be our “40 months” celebration. The main reason for bothering is we are LDR, he doesn’t drive, I don’t own a car and my parents are off on their holidays and by the time we’ve used public transport we get hardly any time together at our respective houses. The quickest way to see each other and make the most of the weekend was to get a train to meet in a different city!
Now when this idea was first mentioned he said “ooooh 40, that’s a nice round number”. I mentioned maybe meeting up with some friends there or some of his family that live that way on the sunday. He dodged that one and told me that he’d rather it was just us two.
I KNOW I’m reading into things, I KNOW I’m setting myself up for a letdown, but my mind is still racing at 10 to the dozen thinking “but what if it does happen”. We’ve known since 4-6 months of being together that we want to spend the rest of our lives together. In Jan 07 we both picked out the same ring as a potential candidate. He even took me inside to try it on! (both students at the time and couldn’t afford) Since then a lot of general talk and no action. I’m a magpie and have been pretty much brought up to look in every shiny window and find my favourite piece of jewellery. I’ve looked at hundreds of rings, he knows the style I like for certain now. A lot of family/friends assumed we’d get engaged when I moved back home to be closer to him to see him. That was Nov last year.
