bees, i must confess – i surprise myself.
yesterday, when i found out that me and my bear might be heading towards the engagement pretty fast, it got me thinking about the whole situation for a while.
it’s weird, but the idea of marriage was always scary to me before.
i had one “serious” relationship before SO. even after it lasted for two years, fear and reluctance haven’t passed. all the wedding fuss seemed so vain and unnecessary, that when my ex tried to give me a promise ring (coming with a promise of getting married someday, of course), i turned him down saying i never wanted to go through it all. period.
*what a bitch, right? wrong – he turned out to be a bastard, being with him made me sick and miserable and i’m incredibly happy we didn’t end up together.*
now, 4 years into my relationship with SO, i want everything. the engagement, the planning process, the DIY’ing, the ceremony, reception, honeymoon – i need all of it! it makes me happy even to daydream about these things and i can’t wait for them to happen. indeed, one person completely turned my world upside down. because he’s my twin soul, he makes me feel confident, safe and positive – no matter what’s going on outside of the world we created for us two. i can’t imagine a better partner in life, someone who would love me more (except for my parents) and whom i would love more than him. i’m so happy i will soon be able to call him my husband.
if some of you never thought of marriage before – why/how did your SO make you want it?

Its called being in love with your soulmate , its called having tears and even crying thinking of how happy that person makes you , its called not knowing how to live without them , its called where were you all my life ! LOL….
all the last person does is prepare you to appreciate whom you really belong with. He IS the right man for you b/c he makes you want to plan your union with him to become one :-)…. The saying when you know you know is so true… b/c you know something when your gut is talking to you… and you dont listen b/c you get caught up with the surface things…. is when you end up making mistakes … Be honest with your deepest feelings … dont lie to yourself just because you want a wedding let the feelings come naturally, and that my dear is whats happening to you the feelings came naturally so you are able to accept them now than in your last relationship …
YOU FOUND THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE ! dont over think it and enjoy the moment for what it is :-)… at least this time you know in your heart its for real … and Thank God you got a second chance :-)…

@linssi: I admit that I never thought about it until he proposed. I just realized that I actually wanted to marry him . I had never felt that way before.

@linssi: I’m not entirely sure. with my previous relationship(s) it just wasn’t on the table and wasn’t something that i seriously thought about, it was enough we were together and standing sidfe by side. but, with this one, i think i’m ready. it’s just, right….
