Okay, I will start with a little background. I am 21 and my boyfriend is 20 going on 21. We are in a LDR, but he graduates in a few months and will be coming back home! Yay! I am just starting nursing school, so I have another 2 years or so before I graduate. We dated for a year then broke up because of college, and he came back.. I made him fight for me and now we have been together for another year and things couldn’t be better. I know I am too young to seriously think about getting married and I know that I will change a lot in the next few years. I have always known that this is the guy I want to spend the rest of my life with, and I know he feels the same but I just want to hear it a little more often than I do. He has said that he wants to marry me and sees a future with me, but he doesn’t really think about it right now because he wants to graduate and get settled himself first. Every now and then I will say something to him about it and I know he feels pushed at those times, and I know I should stop because I know it will come in time. All of my friends date guys that are at least 2 years older than them and when they start talking about maybe getting engaged it just makes me think about it even more. I know for sure I want to wait to get engaged at least until I am about to graduate, but it kills me thinking about it! I guess it is good that I know he sees a future with me, but I guess I am getting “wedding fever”, seeing everyone else plan! My brother is 19 and his girlfriend is 18, wayyy too young to get married but he had been having work trouble and apparently had been looking for a ring. That bothered me and I guess I got a little jealous. But, he is not having that trouble anymore and I guess not looking, but they cant seem to stay together for good. I know it is bad and I am being immature at times, but I am a 21 year old girl, what can I say? Any advice on how to be more patient?
