Tonight we finally had the BIG talk. I’ve been ready forever. He’s always been on board but a little fuzzy on the timeline. He asked me if I was ready to move in and OF COURSE I am. We discussed our thoughts on getting engaged and I said I may feel more comfortable if we do that first. He is completely agreeable! He said if not for the ring he would move in today. If I want the ring first then it will take a short while to get that together. I’m so excited I want him to come with his stuff tonight!!! Bees- this has been such a roller coaster ride but I’m so pumped that we are finally on the same page. Now I can start hardcore ring dreaming!!
Also: I think I have him persuaded into eloping which is all I’ve ever wanted! Today is a great day!

Congratulations on the next step! I’m a little confused though… do you mean you want to be engaged before moving in together? If so, I would highly recommend waiting that out. Couples learn so much about each other when they live together. And marriage should definitely not be rushed!
But go ahead and shop for furniture together. It’s fun!! =)

Yeah- I’ve seen friends move in and get stuck in this holding pattern. I don’t want that to happen. I also don’t want to manipulate the situation either. Seems like it could be a bit passive aggressive to say I refuse to move in without the ring???
Honestly I am just so happy he is truly ready for this – I thought we would never get here!!
