Hey! I've been lurking here for quite a while now, and I just (finally) posted on the GTKY thread, but my BF said something so exciting a couple of days ago and I can't tell anyone else because nothing's official, but I HAVE to share with someone:
After having casually talked about getting married for a few months, SO told me Friday night the reason he hasn't proposed yet is that he wants to be in a different place financially. We actually talked about his fears and concerns and what's been holding him back, and I found out a TON of very important information, and am happy to know that he wasn't talking about our future idly. It actually seems to really be painful for him to wait, but he thinks it's the right thing to do.
Of course, the first thing I did the next day while replaying the convo in my mind was look at wedding dresses and engagement rings, before I reminded myself not to be cray cray.
His daughter, S, has been very vocally wondering why we weren't married yet and when it was going to happen for months now. She's angling for a sibling, but she's going to be SOL for now.
