Finally feel like I can post! I’ve been with my bf for 3 and a half years, including a cross-country move and a serious illness/surgery for him. It’s been a long road, filled with super high highs and really low lows.
We’ve been talking about marriage for the better part of the last two years — we moved from the east coast to California 1.5 years ago and I thought for sure it would be just before/after the move. Well, he came down with a rare disease a couple months after the move and that definitely set any timeline we had back. Every vacation, every holiday I had my hopes up, but I knew it really wasn’t going to happen then.
Well…finally, after so much patience, he showed me a ring on his phone tonight while I was cooking dinner and goes “are you sure you like this?” It wasn’t my style at all, but it opened dialogue for me to tell him exactly what I do and do not like and what I’m looking for in a ring. He’s going to be purchasing it in the next few days! I can. not. wait. to be his wife and I am SO EXCITED! I can finally say I’m “waiting” for real! Just excited to officially start planning our lives together. This is a dream!
