- Wedding: November 2016
I am so glad I found this message board. We have been together almost two years and nothing yet. He wants me to move In first which I have to do or otherwise we cannot move forward. I know I have to trust that he won’t string me along but I am so scared.
He told me that he can see us going in that direction and that I shouldn’t have any indication that we are off course to go in that direction… I am just glad I have found some like-minded ladies going through the same thing as I am. Friends all around us are getting engaged (they have been dating less time) and the more it happens the more upset it makes me… Not because I am not happy for them but because I want and know I deserve that commitment too.
I am going to try to Stick to this pact muster the very little faith I have inside me to do this. Thanks for the support ladies.
I’ve had to bite my tongue so much today! We are down at my parents house for Thanksgiving and my sister and her fiance are here as well. So many opertunities to talk about marriage and proposing have come up and my mom just brought it up again. Staying strong is so hard! 😳
I know the ring has arrived and I just can’t wait for him to finally propose! I don’t want to bug him about it but it’s sooo hard. If he doesn’t do it so I might explode. We will celebrate 8 years (I know!!!) together in 3 weeks. Eeeeek excited bee over here!
I WAS DOING SO WELL but another penalty for me. I said I would do something with him in January and play the supportive Girlfriend and then I asked if I would still be able to be the supportive GF by January. Whoops!
Seventh and eighth offences at $2 each… my jar’s at $13
We had some American family members over for Thanksgiving dinner last night and overheard my SO make a comment to my aunt about our Europe trip; I just caught kind of an excited sneaky smile. This trip isn’t until May 2016 and I feel like this is forever away! Maybe it’s the fact that it’s rainy and gloomy outside here but man am I having a day. Just feeling awfully sorry for myself today lol, *sigh* I know I should pick myself up and dust myself off but I’m just having a “lick my wounds” kind of moment
First offense this morning. And I was doing so well!! This morning we were sitting in the living room with my sister and her fiance and a story came on the news about the singer Rachel Platten (my name is Rachel and my boyfriends last name is Platt, I mean come on!!!!) I bit my tongue though. It was really hard lol. Then my sister started talking about black Friday savings and I let slip that the store that we have been looking at is having a sale too…. One dollar down..how many more to go before the day is done? Lol
OH my so much activity over these couples days.
Have to read the rest of your posts in a few ladies and respond have to get my baby down for nap time but I wanted to do a quick check in. I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday and ate well. I did very well still keeping quiet eventhough my paitence are like UGH will you give me my ring already. Ohhhh wait I did put a dollar in my jar. There was this really nice black tungsten wedding band and I asked if he liked it.
I think I may start doing this. If I had started alot earlier … holy crap I’d have a fully funded wedding by now!! Haha
