WaitingBee Words of Wisdom (brief sentence): Keep Calm and Lurk the Bee
Comments (for longer story if you wish): So, the other Waiting Bees probably don’t think I belong here, either because I’m quite young compared to most other Bees or because of my short relationship with my SO. As a result, I just want to say… When you know, you just know! After two weeks, my SO and I already knew we wanted to share our lives with eachother. It is the most perfect fit; we really do complete eachother. We’ve both been in very serious, longterm relationships before this, so its not as if we’re new to relationships (I’ve had one that was almost 7 years, that was months away from marriage. I realized I wasn’t in love and walked away, then dated quite a bit before meeting my SO. He was in a four year relationship, followed by a three year relationship that also almost ended in marriage before he also realized he was unhappy and left. He, too, dated a bit after that until we got together.). So we’re not naive and inexperienced in relationships. We’ve been there, done that, and despite being young and not having been together very long, we know we want to be together. We’ve already discussed life, a future, what we want in the longterm and a timeline of when we want it… We agree on everything. I don’t expect a proposal soon — currently all of our savings are going towards a downpayment on a house so we can move in together, so a ring isn’t a priority right now — but we’ve had conversations where HE has wanted to know all about the dream wedding I want, when I want it, etc. He even asked all about the ring that I want; in his phone, he has saved a note with all the details about my dream ring, including my ring size. He’s even picked out our wedding rings. Thus, I know he is serious, and I genuinely believe that once our house downpayment is together, he will be getting a ring. That’s why I’ve gotten myself added to the Waiting Bee list; I think sometime in 2014, I’ll be getting engaged! I’ve never been so happy in my life.
