hey ladies my boyfriend and I have been together 4 years (in april) we've talked about marriage for a long time but situations/life (my dad had cancer, his apartment flooded and needed massive renovations) have put it on the back burner. Anyways I know he's gotten a ring and is paying for it at the moment, and very close to getting it i guess thats making me more anxious as well. We talked on monday about looking at venues even though we're not engaged yet, he's totally up for it he thinks its a good idea because things book up so quickly and we don't want to put it off another year (we're looking at getting married June 2016) and everyone is getting engaged right now. I'm happy to do it, but the other part of me wishes we were engaged already... i feel like it's taking forever. I feel like we've talked about it for so long we're at this point in our relationship where we know things are going to change but are not quite there yet so I feel in limbo right now. Anyways is looking at venues bad even though we know the engagement is coming?
