1. Because I’m tired of calling him my boyfriend! It just doesn’t sound that serious to me. 

2. Because people are starting to ask when we are getting married, or looking at me and saying “you’re next” at weddings. I feel weird talking about a wedding to ppl when I’m not officially engaged.

 People are asking because we have been together for a while, there are no wedding plans. Although, I will start trying to plan after I get engaged! 

3. I am starting my career and I feel like I may be taken more seriously if I’m wearing a ring. I have no idea if that’s true or not… prob all in my head!

My silly reason is that I used to work on a jewellery counter in a well known shop here in the UK from the age of 16-18. I used to look at the couples picking out engagement rings and just find it so incredibly romantic and think to myself, that must be the best feeling ever, I cant wait until that is me! Even now I look at girls/women wearing only an engagement ring and think-wow, they must be at a really exciting time in their lives, full of love, excitement and anticipation!

I want a beautiful ring on my finger that symbolizes our love! Damn, I want that ring. . . I spend way too much time on Etsy dreaming over rings these days.

So silly and materialistic, and yet I can’t help it!

And, so I can stop being called his “girlfriend.” That’s what he calls me, and am I ever sick of just being a GIRLFRIEND. We act like husband and wife. ๐Ÿ˜›

The silliest reason I can come up with isnt really silly. I want kids, badly. Like within the next two years. He doesnt want to have a kid while not married, its really important to him. Oh and also so my dad stops thinking I’m “going through a black people phase.” Yes, he’s actually said that.

My petty reasons?

1. Everyone keeps assuming that we are already married, and I feel terrible when I repeatedly correct them and tell them that he is my boyfriend, or that I am his girlfriend! (I guess we give off that “vibe?”

2. He calls me his “Ms. B” at home…I love it, and I would love to hear him say that I am his Mrs. B to everyone else too.

3. So I don’t have to endure any family questions anymore about: When, and Why not yet? Etc.

4. To gain the respect that my relatives have for my siblings.

5. To start DIYing the stuff that I have found on the interwebs.

6. To stop hiding my “wedding-obession” like something shameful.

7. To be able to change my name before I start teaching, so that I don’t have to change it in the middle of a school year, or between school years.

None of these reasons matter nearly as much to me though, as knowing that I love my SO and that I want to spend the rest of our lives together…growing, raising a family, falling more in love every day (even though it is hard to imagine that we could be), and being one another’s best friend and family.

Like many other bees, boyfriend just doesn’t sound right when you’re 30+ and I can’t wait for us to be husband and wife.

I want everyone to know how much he really loves me. I think thats the worst part about waiting. I feel like people don’t think he loves me enough to pop the question ๐Ÿ™

Boyfriend simply does not fit anymore and I hate being just his “girlfriend” at this age, after living together for almost a year. I’m the one who does his laundry and cooks him dinner, that goes very well with some bling on my finger!

(1) So I’m more than just the very temporary-sounding “girlfriend” (2) So I can look forward to getting to wake up to him and love him forever (3) So that we can begin our forever, and be a real team!
