boyfriend and i have been dating for about five years, since i was 26 and he was 32. always a commitment-phobe, it took me a long time to come around, but faced with a health scare in december, with the very real possibility that i could lose the love of my life forever to his sudden illness just completely knocked some sense into me. i never, ever want to go a day without him being the love of my life.
fast forward five months... boyfriend is doing very well, and in fact, he just picked up my e-ring on monday that we both picked out together. however, since we picked out the ring together, i agreed that i am going to AT LEAST let him do the proposal thing -- he is very excited about planning something. likewise, i am so, so freakin' excited to be engaged to my best friend, but i am SO antsy about WHEN it will happen! what's worse, we share a very tiny new york city apartment, and he has HIDDEN the sparkly thing somewhere! it is taking every ounce of my willpower not to do a little snooping.
i guess it's only fair that he keep me waiting since i kept him waiting for so long!
boyfriend has told me to enjoy this remaining time being just boyfriend and girlfriend while i can -- boy, am i trying!!!!
i am going nuts here!! i have literally been on pricescope obsessively since the day we ordered the ring eight weeks ago. so glad there's a place on the interwebs like this, and some fellow lovely ladies to share and empathize with!!
