- Wedding: September 2013
Hi everybody! I’m so ready for him to propose. I thought it would be by the end of 2012, but now he has a lot of financial things going on, where I don’t see him buying a ring anytime soon. We have been talking about marriage for a year, and I know we both want the same thing, which is good. I am confident he loves me, and wants to spend the rest of his life with me.I am just hoping for a ring soon, I just don’t want to get too impatient and I am trying to not let myself pressure him. It’s hard though. However, I do want him to do it on his own, not because I told him to hurry up and go get a ring. Well, this year a lot has happened in my life and my guys life, a lot of good things, and some stressful things. Anyway, our 4 year anniversary just past. We have lived together for a year and a half. We are very happy, in love, and we don’t argue or have problems. We got our first pet together 6 months ago, a cat, haha! We rent our house and I am on the waitlist for nursing school. He makes good money, like 80k a year, but he has an issue with child support. His daughter is not in his life, she is 9 years old and severely autistic. In the past month, he decided to go for full custody of his daughter, which I am willing to support and help if she becomes a part of our life. He never has any money saved because he has child support (or he may soon be taking care of this disabled child full time, financially, emotionally, ect.), he also golfs a lot, and has an expensive car payment, and he loves toys like his dirt bike, golf clubs ect., so he spends a lot of money. Now that the situation with his daughter is evolving, he is going to give his Jepp back to the dealer as a repo. and buy a more fuel efficient truck from an origional owner. Basically he is re arranging his finances because he has too. I know he’s going through a lot so now is probably not a time to feel selfish and be eagerly waiting for a ring for the holidays. My birthday is in January too.
I need some words of advice on how to be patient. I was hoping he would propose before I start my 2 year nursing school. I may start the RN program in January, or maybe even August. At this point, it’s all out of my hands, I am just so ready for him to propose. I love him so much, and he loves me, but I want him to pick the ring because he’s ready to. UGH! Waiting is hard. Thanks for reading 🙂
