We're Getting Engaged

Recommended Posts

Guest Paul_London

Been a while since I posted, but can't hide this any longer. As title says things are going so well in 3 1/2 months that we discussed getting engaged.

We met on a kinky / fetish site and since day 1 haven't had any secrets and openly discuss many aspects of our relationship.

So discussing getting engaged isn't unusual for us and by Valentines Day week I think I pop the question, although I think I know the answer.

We've also bought our own rings so we'd have exactly want we wanted.

With regards to setting date for the big day I've said if we get engaged then the wedding won't happen for few years so we can plan & save.

Also on the cards maybe this year is moving in together.

My only fear in all this. People saying we are rushing, but feels so right.

Well, hopefully this week we'll have the rings and if possible i'll pop back & post some pics for you.

Congratulations!

It does sound soon but that doesn't mean it isn't good and right. Sometimes it just happens that way. If you were also going to rush into a marriage then I'd advise caution but you are taking that step slowly and it will give you time to know each other on all levels.

I've known people who got married after a week's acquaintance and stayed happily married over 50 years and a couple who were engaged for 7 years and miserably married for 20. You can't always be sure. It's just the longer you know someone the less likely you are to discover you really didn't if you know what I mean

I am happy you have found someone who accepts you and you can share your life with. I wish you all the best!

Each relationship is different and so if you are ready and she is ready, go for it.

Will be looking for the update.

Thanks all.

Yes JJ, the wedding will be a while off and she knows it. Still she's got lots of ideas.

Probably overdue for me to settle down and move out of mums home too. Hehe.

I asked my wife to marry me after only 3 dates, and we've been together 7 years now. Even if things don't work out, I will still not regret this time of my life. So no, I don't think you're necessarily rushing. Time doesn't really mean anything, if your intuition is good.

Oh!!! And, Congratulations!

I've now got a plan for the big day. I've designed a custom card and it has meaning to it.

Just need right time to give it to her. One plan is she will be away for her Birthday with a friend. I was thinking of giving her the card which she will think/assume is a birthday card. She'd open on morning of Birthday and be surprised it's not a Birthday Card.

Downside is I wouldn't be there. I might just do it this weekend instead. If she's OK will post pictures post proposal of the card.

She Said YES!!

We met in pub some of her family own and I had told her "I have a card and a birthday present".

She didn't know that the card had the proposal in. Her parents were there and we got some Champagne too.

After went for a meal when I was pointed out I hadn't asked the Dad (do people still do that?). I asked and he kinda said yes.

Once home and in bed I realised I hadn't done the down on knee thing, so just before posting this I sat her on edge of bed and asked verbally and on one knee. She still said yes.

Congratulations!

I am overjoyed for you. And so romantic too. She's a lucky lady and I can see why she said yes.

What Heather said above? Take it to the bank, mate. Fast get-togethers CAN and DO often work out!

My parents' generation, The World War II Generation, had many instances of lightening-fast romances and marriages. Results? Many, many of those couples were married for 50-60 years until one of them passed away, and they were very happy.

Our best to you two! Rock on!

Peace :thumbsup::friends::thumbsup: Lacey

      Sad to say, this is running about the same as it is here in the U.S. and may not be as bad in a couple of places, but still it is pretty bad overall.  Great Britain has about the same stats on H8ers, minus the KKK of course, but the Fundamentalist and Roman Catholic influences are used as the same excuses to just plain hate from what I have heard.

      https://inews.co.uk/news/uk/third-transgender-people-victim-hate-crime/   This is very troubling, but given the very negative press and public opinions, hardly surprising.  The question is, what, if anything, will be done about it?   Carolyn Marie

      Seat belts are not required but highly advised.  Actually i took me time to feel much and even then changes were slow and subtle.  Enjoy your journey!   Hugs,   Charlize

      Congratulations, get ready for the ride and hold on. I started HRT about 14 months ago at 41. I have loved every minute of my journey thus far. I won't lie, it's a roller coaster. Good luck on your journey and do keep us posted.    Hugs    Shawnna

      My GP finally received the confirmation from Daventry GIC to prescribe hormones for me. I'll be on leuprorelin injections to stop production of T and estradiol valerate tablets. Shame I have to wait until after the weekend for the pharmacy to get them in, but I've waited this long so a few more days don't matter too much. Looks like I'll be on HRT in time for my 46th birthday on Wednesday.

      Here we go again Carolyn!!! You throw meaningful articles out there that usually result in really good  debates, thank you !!!   I have read two books by Jen Boylan and she is as real as they get. I also like that she's from Maine !!   The listed article really hit home while reading a quote from Kristen Beck, “What you wear, what color you are, your religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity has no basis on whether you are a criminal or not.”  Yes indeed. I support Eric Snowden and the courage it took for him to expose unprecedented abuses of power by the United States. His motives were clear, his intentions were more than obvious. Perhaps I still need more understanding,  but I have yet to wrap my head around the motives and intentions of the information released by Chelsea Manning...??? All I do know is that there is a sea of negativism surrounding her  and now her unqualified run for public office.   I spend hours every week at the  VA hospital attending LGBT group meetings. The horrible comments and ridicule I see on a weekly basis toward our transgender Vets walking the halls is unmatched by what I have experienced in public. A good friend straightened me out on this. He says the VA is filled with  right wingers. Yes it appears this is true. Since this whole Chelsea Manning running for Senate thing started it has gotten even worse, trust me!   I have posted on this site previously  that I merely wish Manning could be grateful for being free and go live a quiet, happy  and public free life. Jen Boylan echos this. I oh- so- admire the piss and vinegar Manning has but she is in fact a convicted felon embodied in a sea of perceived public hatred.   Like the hateful Vets at the VA, I don't think we will ever change their minds about accepting trans humans. . Not in this lifetime. Say what you will but it is my true belief that we need positive examples. Though she's not my favorite but Kristen Beck is right up there. Retired Navy Seal that served with honor and distinction. The author of this article, Professor Jennifer Boylan is another. This list goes on and on, doctors, lawyers, politicians, successful entrepreneurs . I support Chelsea manning as a trans woman and human being. I do not support her for a  Senate run, and her public exposure merely adds fuel to the fire of hatred already directed toward innocent trans people like me and you ......   In the brutal world of public opinion there is a saying; "Its not what you are but what people think you are."  I love and deeply respect our transgender community. You will never find such courageous people as represented in the transgender world. We proudly serve in  every profession, military branch, labor force and service industries. We never ask for recognition or a pat on the back, all most of us want is to be allowed to live our authentic lives free of murder, rape and ridicule.  Is Manning helping that cause?? What is your opinion??   Sincerely,   Tess
