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

      Ms. Boylan has such an honest rational voice.  Manning's candidacy may or not be helpful for our community.  It may go nowhere but she does have every reason to be angry. In my opinion did little more than was done by reporters in the past who were actually able to report what they saw during Viet Nam rather than only reciting what they were told by the military.   Many may not agree with me about that and that is fine but allowing us to see some of the atrocities of the war was in some ways an heroic, if illegal, act.  That being said i'm certainly not sure that makes her any more qualified for office than being a slumlord in NY does.   Hugs,   Charlize

      One of the great advantages of going to a therapist was having an opportunity to remember and share a lifetime of experiences similar to those you describe.  Somehow being open and honest was a step i needed in finding the strength and confidence to follow my path.   Thank you for reminding me of my past as well as sharing your own.   Hugs,   Charlize

      It all gets a bit complicated at times   Here it it a standing joke about not having to see someone's medical records to know their issues, just sit in the reception at the doctors surgery and listen to the receptionist! Not really funny, but it happens a lot.   For me it is a daily thing as I am not planning a namechange etc in the near future, but only occasionally gets too much. Its always going to be easier wth one name and one gender.   Tracy

      Hi, Although the basis of my meditation come from a book on Buddism the spiritual aspect of my life is based around being thankful for what I have and for the people I know and to participate with that which is around me the basis of which is understanding and practicing love. i like Buddism a lot but prefer if people use their own words when conveying something.  If I had the determination and attention span to read the Quoran and find a Master I would say I would align myself with Sufism but that's not going to happen so I have to be content being an Abrahamist with Big Book leanings. This is not my own words but sort of in fact. Love God (your version) and treat others with kindness and love:) The rest is commentary. Reading this made things easy for me. In light of the simplicity I feel that spirituality should not possess an inaccessible quality to it.  Why I like Sufism is the belief that "love is the highest station of the soul."

      Hi ,  thanks for the warm welcome

      Hi Gwen, thanks for the warm welcome. I do have a balanced life but it’s especially because it helps me to get through the dysphoric days. I try to work a lot and do relaxing things to be confronted less with the dysphoria.   I love Godiva chocolate. Lindt chocolate from Switzerland is not bad either but I prefer my Belgian chocolates. We have a Leonidas on every corner here. Do you have Leonidas chocolate in the USA?
