Hey bees, my SO has gone from complete commitment phobe to happily planning to get engaged soon within the space of about 2 months. We started traveling 2 months ago, we are traveling for another year and a half, and ever since we began our trip he’s been talking about our future. It’s bloody exciting! (sorry, I’m Aussie) I’ve had a couple of weak moments since we left (was missing my family) and both times he was so reassuring. The last time, he said to me ‘don’t say anything for a couple of months. It’s going to happen really soon and I want it to be a surprise!’ I haven’t said a word (go me!) and ever since there’s been little things that he’s been saying that show me it is on his mind! His friend just met up with us for a week and he was happily talking about our future to him. This might not seem like much – but my SO is one of those guys that takes things super seriously. He thinks about things for ages before even making the smallest decision! (probably lucky as I am hopelessly spontaneous!)
I’m so so excited I just can’t wait! I cannot believe after 6.5 years he is finally ready and it will (hopefully) happen really soon! Aahhh! I cannot wait to hear those words come from his mouth! 🙂
Share your stories with me! I want to hear your excitement too and how you wait patiently without going crazy!! Yayyyy!!

Ours was kind of silly. Just like we’ve always been together. I think the first time I REALLY knew this guy was forever, was when I was sitting in his room one night and I can’t even tell you what he said, but I was laughing so hard I flopped down on the creaky old couch and the legs broke right off it! And he said “oh…It’s okay babe, we’ll just tell my roommate we were having hot kinky monkey sex”.
Ok strange story aside, We were walking down the old dirt road by the house testing out the new hikeing sticks he had just carved for both of us. It was a beautiful october evening, the moon was full and orange and it was right about that indian summer time you know? I saw a shooting star and pointed at it and closed my eyes to make a wish. He was just grinning at me and asked me what I wished for and we had a little teasing back and forth about is a wish really a wish if I tell someone, and I asked him what he wished for and out of the blue he said
“You, forever. Will you marry me?” and took off his necklace that his Dad gave him years ago and put it around my neck. Obviously I said yes.

Wait. I confused myself. That is my engagement story. I’m still waiting on the ring.
I look at ring porn…alot. Other then that, I post on here and busy myself with netflix or work stuff or start a new project for the shop, or talk with the older married couples and ask for marriage advice.
