Janay Posted September 24, 2008 Share Posted September 24, 2008 Hi, This my situation... My boyfriend and I met in college and next month we'll be celebrating our 4 year anniversary. I'm 23 and I've been out of college for a year and upon graduation I already had a wonderful career awaiting me. My boyfriend is almost 23 and he decided to stay in college an extra year and he just graduated in June. He has a job, but it's only a temporary job that is over in November. We've had the "engagement talk", and he said that he's comfortable getting engaged in about 2 years because he feels that at that point he should be financially ready. Even though he's given me a timeline, it's really hard for me to be patient and I think about getting engaged every day. 2 years seems like such a long time to wait for a proposal and I just don't know how to deal with waiting. I've heard that I can use the time to better myself and that I should just take the time to enjoy our relationship, but it's hard for me to better myself or enjoy the relationship when I can't get engagement off of my mind. It also doesn't help that every month one of my friends seems to be getting engaged. So, do you guys have any ideas of what I could do while I'm waiting 2 years for the proposal? Link to comment
