He proposed tonight! I was SUPER SHOCKED!!!
We attended a “Green” ball, for conservation and energy. It was pretty elite and literally no lie, about 60 people stopped us and either took pictures or complimented us. 🙂
I got dressed, and he arrived to my house. He was stunned at my outfit. I thought I looked pretty average, lol but apparently he felt otherwise and so did everyone else.
After walking around and having a glass of wine, he decided we go to the photo booth. I LOVE taking pics. So I was game. When we got in there, I was sitting my glass down to press the start button on the booth, I turned around….And he was down on one knee. He said “Hey woman, (that’s my nickname lol) will you marry me?” LOL I immediately said “What? ARE YOU FOR REAL? ARE YOU SERIOUS?!” Everyone outside the booth heard me! He caught me on camera saying this. So, I looked up and saw we had more photos. I rushed him to take the extra pics with the ring box in his hand, and a few with us kissing. The night was so perfect <3
NOW….A RING PIC!!!! Pardon any hair or dryness LOL I really really couldn’t avoid that. 🙂
I literally am still in shock. The odd part? I kept thinking all night “This really could happen tonight.”
Waiting bees: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for assisting me with my waiting journey. Now that its over, I have some advice for you.
If you have read my posts or chat with me on here, you know how much I emphasize being patient. I didn’t give him any ultimatum or anything. We have been together two years, and I knew he wanted to marry me. I just let him do it on HIS time. A man is NOT going to marry women who force them into it. That’s not how it works. I’ve seen so many posts about men not stepping up to the plate after only a year, and the women lecturing them.
Take your time! My Fiancee (sounds so different saying that lol) is literally my best friend. We talk about EVERYTHING and just enjoyed each others time while dating. It wasn’t any pressure on marriage or engagement because we both knew what we wanted. He knew when he wanted to make it official, and I didn’t force him into it.
The best things in life really aren’t for free. Especially time. Time is so, so precious. So take your time and use it wisely with him. Enjoy getting to know each other and not focusing so much on marriage. Its ok if you like the idea of knowing you want to marry him. But what isn’t ok is not respecting his space and his decisions. When he’s ready, he will ask. Don’t let these men lead you on two or four years without discussing marriage if that’s something you know you want. Because its a waste of your time and his if he can’t stand up and speak about your future as well as his own. I’ve been there, done that, and now im moving forward.
BLESS YOU BEES!!!
