  • Wedding: September 2012

Mine was a bit different…in the beginning, didn’t even want a relationship at all. Then realized he liked me and didn’t want to stop seeing me. Was very cautious in the beginning after being hurt in the past, and took a while to say ‘i love you’. Once he did fall for me, he was very sure of what he wanted from me. it was only a matter of the right time for him to propose (in his mind) I guess it depends on the guy?

My guy is an odd one. 🙂 When we started dating, we were very serious that it would be long-term. He was so excited to have me in his life and talked of the future in terms of “we” and “ours.” Then as our relationship got pretty serious, I’d say he got cold feet. He got nervous that he’d lose his freedom, his friends, his life (lol) if he were to make a commitment to me. I also think he is nervous that he wouldn’t meet my family’s expectations. 

Another odd thing about my SO is that he didn’t want to say the L word to anyone but the girl he would marry. He said it to me after 15+ months of dating and then suddenly we began talking about marriage, engagements, etc. We plan to get engaged next year and married a year after that, after I finish my PhD. 


So to summarize, 1) Lovey-dovey, 2) cold feet, and then 3) sudden acceptance of marriage, but we’re not done yet.
