Hi everyone. I’m new here and I’ve been playing the waiting game for quite awhile.
I’ve been with my SO for nearly 4 years (in February). We started living together after about a year and a half. We have discussed marriage plenty of times before, but all he says is, “I can’t give you an answer. All I can say is soon. I don’t want to be with anyone else.” He said that a year ago. sad
We took an anniversary trip in April this year and I was so sure it was going to happen, but it didn’t. He thanked me for going on the trip.
About six weeks ago, I found a paper ring sizer (the ones you can pick up at any jeweler) on his desk and thought maybe he had thought about buying a ring. I coyly asked about it and he said it’s for a project he’s working on at work (he’s an engineer). So I felt stupid even asking.
So here I am lol... waiting. I don’t need a ring. I’m just ready for the next step. We live together, have dogs together, and I’m finishing up with grad school in May. I love him and I want to be with him forever.
