Hi everyone, I’m new here and decided to post because it’s so nice to see other people that understand long distance relationships.
I’ve been dating my boyfriend for about a year and a half now. I love him dearly and he makes me so happy. But lately I seem to be going crazy because I wish we could start thinking about getting engaged. It got to the point where we had a huge conversation about it and I cried a lot and he said he would prefer to take things more slowly, but that he was intent on marrying me. He says he really wants us to be in the same town so we can interact daily and grow closer. But I’m having a hard time finding a job in his town and we’re not THAT far apart (2 1/2 hours). I’m ready for the next step in the relationship and he isn’t really. So here I am going crazy. I know he’s trying to be realistic about the situation, but it still hurts.
So there’s my vent for the day. Have I completely lost it? I’m too romantic, I think. Sorry for the long first post!
