#1. We’ve been together about 18 months

#2. I don’t know when to expect our engagement; we’ve been talking about it for a while, and he let slip that he wanted us to get engaged before I moved away but that didn’t happen and I was a bit disappointed over that.  We only recently started discussing rings.  I’ve given him some broad ideas of what I would like, because I feel like it should be truly a gift as opposed to me saying that he has to buy me whatever ring.  I also got one of those free ring sizers and shown him the two ring sizes that I think I’m between.  But I get the impression from him that an engagement is pretty far off even though getting married and having kids does come up with some regularity.  Most to all of our friends are married, engaged, have babies or are having babies soon.  We went to 4 weddings this year!

#3. We used to live in neighboring towns in LA, but I moved to Texas a few months ago to improve my job situation.  He actually encouraged me to find this other job, and really pushed me to accept it when I got the offer.  We’ve both been pretty miserable ever since.

#4. I’m a software engineer and he is a manager in an aerospace engineering firm.

#5.He is generous, kind and I love his sense of humor!

#6. I’m 28, he’s 31.
