Just wanted to give an update on my waiting situation. Before SO and I were having lots of arguments over my anxiety over not being engaged yet. Well, we have been able to talk about it a lot more lately without arguing and for the most part without him feeling pressured. I have backed off of the anxiety and the pressure and he says our relationship is going a lot better. He says that we are getting close and we even talked about for sure getting married next year. He even eluded to a strong possiblity of engagement before the end of the year (not sure if this is a certainty so trying not to get my hopes up). He had said during a couple of talks that he wants to be the one to pick my ring and surprise me. Today I even saw a buying diamond rings guidebook out on his desk at his apartment. He forgot to hide it from me and I got to his place before he got back from the grocery store. I just smiled big and when he got home pretended I didn’t see it at all. He ended up putting it in his desk to hide it again from me later on. These seem to be really promising signs. I don’t want to get too hopeful yet but I feel like things look to be headed in the right direction. Here’s to hoping I don’t have to wait too much longer!
