    Ha, I like it! Less than a year away, eh? Shoes, I'd love to know how you got to mine and whether you have a gut feeling.

    I will AW my birthday ring as soon as I can! Things are crazy around here right now, and my sister is in town, so I want to spend as much time with her as I can.

    [QUOTE]Cde:  Yours is a gut feeling.  Methinks he's not quite ready yet, but you've been together for so long, you're essentially a part of each other's families already...so to him it's probably more of a formality. Also, you've gotta give him time to buy the ring and plan the proposal.
    Posted by loves2shop4shoes[/QUOTE]

    Yeah. Makes total sense. The two things I didn't put in that I thought of after the fact were that he doesn't want to be married yet because he thinks he is too young, and also my mom has always said she won't pay until I'm 25, so he's waiting for that too.

    I totally second this.  It's been hard to just sit back and wonder "when!?" when I'm an impatient person.  I do better with a deadline.  Now I'm just going to tell myself the deadline is January (and not freak out if it's not!).

    <div>You said it all for me when you said he was getting extra cuddly.  He's starting to think of you as his wifey, even if he hasn't said so.  The fact that you haven't gotten too much in depth with conversation about an engagements suggests to me that that'll happen in the next 8 months or so.  Then he has to ring shop, buy a ring, think of a proposal, and pop the question.</div>

    Is it too late to play? I haven't been able to get on all day :-P This is so neat, I love it! Now back to read more of the stories, such a fun way to pass the rest of my time at work. :-P

(both said by him). About a month ago though, I mentioned something about my little brother's wedding and he goes "it's just a wedding, I don't really believe in the institution of marriage," and then the next day after I asked him about it he said "well of course I want to marry you, but the propsal has to be special, so I had to throw you off the scent." Jerk. :-P

    12)  If you have discussed it, what season would you like your wedding to be in? Late spring, early summer

    Ahh! Shoes, I think you're a little psychic. BF actually called me his wife in a "future scenario" conversation we were having about his business. I was telling him I envisioned helping out or working for him part-time, and he said he didn't see that and didn't want to be my boss. Instead, he said he saw me stopping by the shop "like, 'Hey, Mike and Bob, who work for ADD. I'm the owner's wife stopping by for lunch...'" It was a long conversation and we were enjoying a couple of adult beverages, so I don't know if he remembers saying it, but long story short: you're right, he *is* thinking of me that way, though he may not be ready to say it!

    Haha, we really need to keep track of this.  Nov 2011 IS our 4 year anniv, too....and about a month before we'd make the yearly trek home to visit the parents?  Not bad on the planning meter.

    I think the other boards would think we are DEFINITELY BSC if we made it a sticky though, so let's not do that.  Anyone volunteer to keep track for us? :)

    Your FI needs time to emotionally heal from his friend's death and the issues with his parents.  He can't go into this joyous next step with a cloud hanging over his head.  Give him another 6 months or so, he should be on the rise.  Then, he still has to buy a ring and propose.  

     

    However, he can't wait too long if y'all want 4 children.  Unless he expects you to be the Incredible Baby Making Machine and have his coworkers telling him, "Leave your wife alone!"

    I didn't see this till now but I thought it would be fun.

    1)  How old are you?  How old is BF?
    I'm getting ready to turn 20 and he is 21.
    2)  How long have you been together?
    3 years and 7 months
    3)  What are your current living arrangements?
    Most of the year, I have a dorm and he has an apartment. Otherwise, we stay with family.
    4)  Fur babies?
    None that are "ours". I have a few at home that I love.
    5)  How many days a week do you see each other?
    3-5
    6)  Describe, briefly, your conversations about marriage.
    Although I think about it a lot, he's usually the one who brings it up. We've talked about where we'd want the wedding ceremony and who we want involved. We've talked about married life, living arrangements, kids, etc.
    7)  Have you gone ring shopping?
    Not really. Talked about what I'd like but haven't been to the store. I would rather he pick.
    8)  Do you two want children?  If so, how many?
    Yes, we want kids, but can't pick a number yet.
    9)  What religion are you?  Your BF?  How religious are each of you?
    We're pentecostal Christians. We're quite religious, as in read the Bible daily, go to most church services during the week, he is a youth leader, and pray no less than 7 times a day.
    10)  Where do you live?  State and big city/small town is fine.
    WV, small town
    11)  What's your relationship like with each other's family?
    We get along with each other's family fairly well. His family has said numerous times that they already think of me as family, and mine has decided similarly.
    12)  If you have discussed it, what season would you like your wedding to be in?
    We haven't talked about this much, but think we would like either summer or late fall.
