- Wedding: February 2014
My boyfriend and I have talked about getting engaged before living together and I’m moving in with him in 2 months. Over dinner the other night, he told me that this is the relationship for him and I am the one. He told me that this is why he has waited to tell his parents about us moving in together, because he wants to tell them our plans for the future. He wanted to talk about some other details in regards to getting engaged but not to worry because he still was planning on a formal proposal involving a fancy night out, getting down on one knee, and of course, a ring 🙂 I spoke to my cousin about it the next day and told her that my bf and I were talking about getting engaged soon-ish. She was very adament about not rushing and that I have my whole life ahead of me (i’m 29). I told my boyfriend(he’s 40) about this and also about the fact that my cousin is a bit anti-marriage. He then said, well I’m not in a rush. ????! Wait a sec. I’m confused now. He says he knows he wants to marry me and he knows I want to marry him and both our families(minus my cousin) would be ecstatic…….but he’s not in a rush? Am I over analyzing this?
