My boyfriend asked me to marry him on Friday, and I accepted. I’m really over the moon right now, I’m so very glad this is happening. He’s really a wonderful man, we haven’t been dating for a “long time” and some people might disapprove, but we both know this is right. We’ve had a lot of conversations, we’re very compatible in pretty much every way, and we both want the same things for our futures. I haven’t told my family yet, they haven’t even met him, so I’m a bit nervous about that. I’m Catholic and I want a wedding in the church, so it’s going to be like about a year if I get started right now.
My biggest nervous thing is about explaining to people about how long we’ve been dating, I just know I’m going to get judged and told what a mistake I’m making, I’m just really not sure how to handle that.
Thank you all so very kindly for your support, that really means a lot to me.
My parents’ 40th anniversary is coming up in September, and I was going to go by myself for like two weeks, but instead I’m just going to go for the weekend and he’s going to come with me, so that’s when he’s going to meet most of my family. I hope I won’t be upstaging my parents’ anniversary, do you think? Well they hate each other anyway, I don’t know why they’re still married let alone celebrating 40 years, so I guess it won’t really matter, maybe there’ll be something positive to focus on, lol.
