- Wedding: November 2010
@curly: M is so cute and so funny that I honestly cannot imagine him not being in my life. I honestly cannot imagine leaving him. Marriage is very important to me and a deal breaker, but I know it’s important to him too. He wants to be married one time and to be happily married at that (we both decided that being happy is better than just getting married to appease one another). We are probably one of the happiest couples that I know (married or not) and I would hate to lose that because I am so focussed on him proposing. I’m in it for forever.. and I’m afraid if I continue to focus on it I’ll start resenting him for not doing it earlier and that’s not what I want to do either.
@91011Bride: M and I live together, on Saturday it makes a year!! I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way. I am the first woman he has ever lived with and it seemed a natural progression for us. And I think your wedding date determined your deadline more than an almost-ultimatum type move which is what mine was.
@ej:oh gosh girl, just looking back at the vents that I had over the last four months, it’s like WHOA!! i mean i was really angry, and why, because he wouldn’t get on the schedule that I made for us? a relationship is about compromise. i am not saying that i will be waiting around forever and he knows that. however, i will defintiely meet him in the proverbial middle.
It’s so funny when I was younger I said oh gosh my e-ring has to be 2 carats or better (i was one of those girls) and i must drive this car my guy must have this type of job and make this amount of money and he must drive this car and we must get engaged after 18 months of dating or else i’ll move on to the next guy because i’m not waiting. and then i met M. one smile from this man has changed my entire outlook. we are sharing a car right now (i downsized but i don’t have another one yet, looking this weekend!!) and i dropped him off at work and he turned to look at me and just smiled and waved and i swear to God my entire world was right in that one moment. he completes me like nothing i could have ever imagined. i wouldn’t give this up for the world, who cares if it takes a few extra months for us to get engaged, really what’s a few extra months when i plan on being with him until i’m 111 and beyond? sigh… i get emotional now, must be my hormones getting back in whack. i’m so glad that i waited for him and never got married. (okay enough of the mushy stuff back to your regularly scheduled program)
