I’m relatively new to the forum, but everyone here seems so nice, and I really need to vent, and to have some help/comfort. I hope you ladies don’t mind.
The BF and I have been scrimping and saving for the last year now to get my ring, but every time we get close to the amount (about $400) something happens and that money needs to go to something else. The first time we started saving, the car broke down, the second time the computer broke, the third time the BF’s School payments were more than we expected, (he’s going for his master’s degree) and this time there was a flood and neither of us could get to work for a full week.
I know that because we’re both poor (living in a studio apartment and working in the food industry) and just starting out, it’s hard for us to really have savings and that we’ll have money in the future so I should just wait, but I feel like every time we get close to being engaged the rug gets pulled out from under us. I want to be more than just his “live-in-girlfriend” so bad, and I know that he wants it too, but I feel like God or The Universe is trying to stop us or something and it’s so upsetting all I want to do is cry.
Has anyone else gone through the same problems? I just want to know I’m not alone.
