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

      Welcome, Tali. I'm so glad you found the courage to say hello to TransPulse. I hope you find this a welcoming and informative place, and a safe place to just be yourself. I also have social anxiety and have found life my complicated with my transgender issues. But, I have found support here, and I'm fortunate to have a few people in my life who accept me. I hope you also find the support you want/need as you make your journey, which will provide happiness too. The happiness will come!!   Gwen

      It sounds like you have a good plan for the future and are getting through the present difficulties with a grace that deserves praise.  I remember the humiliation of being called by my male name in crowded waiting rooms.  Those times were instrumental in getting me to make the necessary steps to change my legal status. HRT and living as yourself are certainly major steps along your journey as is finding a style that works well and makes you feel comfortable as yourself. Thanks for the update and happy birthday!   Hugs,   Charlize

        Hi Mary,   I have slightly more than 20 good trans female friends that I speak with on at least a weekly basis. I have never felt alone and if I really need someone to talk to there is always someone nearby. My friends situation is very different. Don't know what the stats are but there appear to be far less FTM than MTF humans out there. That is stating the friend situation only for him. Now, since he's attracted to cis females, the numbers diminish even further. No clue for how many cis women are looking for transmales  but the number seems to be like really really low. So, to me, online dating is a no brainer.  I've checked a few places and the suggestions on dating sites are not many.   Good for you doing the online dating thing. I as well think we should be up front about who we are and I also think it can be safe providing that common sense is used       I really appreciate your view,   Tess

        Thanks Vicky. Some people like very much to be part of a couple, me being one of them. Good luck at your weddings!!!

      Hi Tali, one thing that helped me was getting out of the house and meeting others. My family members all responded differently  to it. My nephews were pretty much a shrug. It took time for some to come to terms with it too.   Welcome to Transpulse!  hugs, Marcie

      Sounds like you are doing very well.  Back when I started things out on the name change, I could not do the gender change until after GCS.  Several months after my GCS and all the changes for me made, they changed the laws -- for the better -- so I would not have had the long drawn out  program that I had to do.  Keep your head high and you will make it, and laugh about all of the hassle.
