So yesterday was the day, I officially moved in with my boyfriend!
A little bit of background (which most of you probably know by now, oops!), we’ve only been together 11 months… I really wanted to move in after 6 months and he was very against it… he wanted it to mean something, and not just be for financial/convienience reasons (very popular in NY), but he was driving me CRAZY because he wouldn’t give me ANY real timeline… he’d say things like “could be ten months, could be ten years.” Well, 4 months after the initial conversation he asked me to move in.
On Friday night we took a cab home from my DJ gig and the cab driver was this pretty intense guy, turban, thick accent… and he asked us “are you husband and wife?” and we said no and then he asked if we lived together, and we said yes… and then he said “oh, same thing as husband and wife.”
So yesterday, we officially moved me into SO’s place… and he let me know (after we had moved) that he doesn’t think couples should live together before marriage! I had kind of assumed that before, but he never said it out loud… so now I feel like the clock is ticking!
Also, we were out last night at a concert and we were being cute and flirty and I kept saying things like “hey, rooooomie” and he kept responding by saying things like “well, according to our cab driver we’re married now!” I laughed and said “No! We’re not married! You need to ask me first!” and then we had what was maybe the most concrete discussion about proposals we’ve ever had!
I told him I wanted him to surprise me, and he said he knew that and that it was going to be really hard to catch me off guard, but he knew how. So I asked him if he already knew how he was going to do it, and he said he did! He also said he wants to ask my dad but is scared my dad wouldn’t be able to keep the secret, which is probably true… my dad would just be too excited.
Anyway, I’m so happy! I really don’t know when it’s going to happen… He has the same timeline for getting engaged as he had for moving in (“could be ten months, could be ten years”) so I really have no idea… I don’t think it’ll be soon (I know for sure he doesn’t have a ring yet) but I’m just so excited that he’s thinking about it.
Also, he said he wants to grab my butt at our wedding so everyone there knows I’m his. LOL.
sorry this is so long, you guys are the best.
