- Wedding: November 2014
I have been lurking on this site ever since my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I started talking about engagement, and so I thought I should just make a profile already and join in the discussion.
We’ve been together for 4 years, lived together for 3. It’s safe to say that we’re a classic case of opposites attract.We both just turned 30 this year, and though we have certainly had our ups and downs (who hasen’t) I feel like our relationship has really grown over the 2 years, and we both have a better understanding of eachothers needs. We’ve discussed marriagebefore, and even though he says it will happen I am getting to the point now where I have considered cutting my losses and terminating the relationship. I’m just so sick of sitting in this holding pattern that I have been in for the last 3 years.
I love him, he is the kind of man that I can see myself spending my life with, the kind of guy I’d like to call my baby daddy lol. But I don’t want to be the kind of woman who pushes and bullies her SO into an engagement, but at the same time I feel like we aren’t getting any younger. He has jokingly asked me, but I’ve made it clear that a real proposal is serious and idealy has a ring. I just want him to want it like I do.
I know there are ladies here that have been in this situation before, so do you guys have any sage advice for me? Been in this situation before and how did you deal with it?
