Every night before we go to bed, BF and I like to chat. Usually he'll ask me to tell him something or ask me to tell him what's on my mind at the moment.

So this weekend wasn't any different. But when he asked I told him I was thinking two things. One, that I wanted to marry him. Two, I worry that he might get tired of me in the forever sense. I don't have doubts but the mind does wander at times, you never know what will happen. Anyways he immediately gets worried and wants me to tell him all my fears. Being that I've done this "forever" thing once before and it blew up in my face and the ex (my only other relationship besides ex-husband and current bf) didn't want forever, I have some silly irrationsal "what ifs" running through my head. We all have gotten hurt before and unfortunately its the people that follow the people who hurt us that have these hurdles to overcome. Anyways so BF tells me that he's known that I'm the woman of his dreams and the love of his life since he was away on the trips during the holidays. So much so that he told his mom last week that he wanted to marry me (up until this point he had only told his dad who would like it if we were engaged before he moves in this summer. ) I didn't know that. He also told me that he already knew when and how he was going to do it and I better be ready cause its going to be really good. He said that the only thing is figuring out how to pay for the ring, but it will be soon.

So now I'm all
and
cause I didn't know he had plans and a timeline done up. I knew he talked to his dad but telling his mom is big. I'm not sure when its going to happen originally I thought for sure within this year. But I have a feeling it might be by summer. Like I said previously, we have plans to visit his family late spring early summer. And plans to go to his favorite childhood spot, at a local beach while there. Now I have a feeling it might happen while we are there because I think he would love having his parents around for it. Crazy huh? Anyways I can't stop thinking about it! I'm all loopy with excitement. Just wanted to share

I like that you both tell each other something before you go to sleep. Very sweet... it is comforting to know that the man you share your bed with wants to marry you... and has proposing on the brain.

GOOD LUCK!

its our ritual now that every night we ask each other to tell the other person something we dont know, either it be a fleeting thought, an event from the day, a joke, whatever. that way we dont forget to say the things we should say sometimes i dont have anything new to say so i just tell him how much he means to me and vice versa its a great way to fall asleep

I wish more men around here would tell their anxious girlfriends their plans when it comes to engagement. I can only imagine how much stress that would alleviate!

I absolutely love that. It''s so sweet and romantic!

Yay for the wonderful news! The possible proposal plans (hometown, childhood beach, family, etc.) sound so dreamy...but make sure you''re not hung up on a proposal and you take in the history and beauty of it all.

Awww, that''s really sweet and also really awesome... Me and the boyfriend actually had a similar conversation two weekends ago in bed... it''s so great when you can snuggle up with the person when really romantic things are said.
