Need input. Moving too fast?

Recommended Posts

I just ended a 3 year engagement about 3 months ago. I recently met a wonderful girl and we've been dating for 1 and a half months. I was supposed to leave for a 6 month fire academy last week, but I couldn't because of I hurt my ankle. She just wanted to wait and date around and decide what to do. She just got out of a 3 year relationship too. Well, I'm stuck here till my ankle heals (atleast a month). So she lets out a torrent of emotions. She tells me she loves me. And I say it back, because I feel it more than anything. Well, we're definitely in it for the long haul now. We've talked about getting engaged, married, kids, job, house, even a dog. Well here's the kicker:


She's mormon. They never, ever, ever marry outside of religion. They're religion is also very strict. No alcohol, smoking, tattoos, no caffeine, certian way to dress. They have a certain way to get married too. It's not a traditional wedding. I'm in the process of converting. Not just for her, but for me. I used to be a heavy drinker (im irish) and curser. I like how I am when I go with her. Proposal is probably osmetime close to Christmas/January.

I'll have a 2 week leave form the fire academy so it would be the perfect time. Any comments?

In my opinion I think you guys are moving a little too fast. It seems a little strange that she wants to talk about marriage and moving in together already after 1 and a half months. Even though you may really like and care for each other, you should still take things slow and let things flow along smoothly.

Converting to her religion?


Talking about kids and marriage etc?


YOu have been dating less than two months! You just got out of a serious relationship that lasted 3 years...


Slow down. Hit the breaks... Take it easy. Dont let yourself rebound.
