- 4 months ago
i have been following along and reading posts so thought it would be time to chime in. I guess I don’t really have a question I just have a vent.
My partner and I have been together over 6 years. I honestly didn’t think I’d be with someone this long and not be engaged but we were still so young that it didn’t bother me until probably 12 months ago after our 5 year anniversary. I never really brought it up I just thought (like everyone else) that it would happen one day.
In December I got pretty upset about it and had a chat with my partner that I wanted this and I would only be willing to wait till the end of 2018 (we are 26 and 29). Now I was pretty upset but 8 months have passed and nothing. Our 6 year anniversary has gone, an overseas holiday and nothing.
I feel absolutely defeated and I know I said I’d be wait till the end of the year but I didn’t think I’d wait this long especially after he knew how upsetting it was to me.
I guess that’s it really. I don’t know how to make it through till December feeling so upset and defeated at this point. Am I being silly in thinking 8 months is a long time after the discussion?
