Ever feel like you are in a dead-end relationship or don’t think you will ever get married. Am I just needing to move on or should I hold out and keep hoping? Maybe I should give him more hints that I am ready for him to ask me. Oh my gosh, please just ask me. Then finally he does. But why wait so long?
When I first met my fiance, we worked for the same company. We started dating about 2 months after we meet each other, and both knew it was love at first sight. We continued dating for about 3 years working at the same place when he decided to take a different job. We were both financially set and just enjoying each others company. But every nice dinner or special outing I always thought to myself this is it, he is going to ask me to be his wife forever. We would live happily ever after. As the years went by — nothing. So I made sure to start giving little hints like saying at weddings “Oh when we get married I want to have something like that” or “I want that kind of ring if you ever ask me.” Still the years went but with nothing. No hints that it would ever be in our future. I was starting to think that maybe I should just move on and find someone that would actual want to be with me.
Then finally the day came. I had just had a 11-hour day at work and was ready to put my hair in a pony tail lay on the couch and call it a day. He came home from worked and asked if I wanted to go have a drink. After the day I had, I was not looking forward to going anywhere, let alone out to see for a night on the town. After a long time of making me feel bad for not wanting to go out, I decided a quick drink was not going to kill me. So we arrived a nice restaurant and he checked us in at the counter and we had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. Which I though was a little weird and made me very irritable with the day I was already having. When we got to the table, I quickly realized that the wait was well worth it. They placed us at a private table and flowers covered the whole table and a my favorite wine waiting chilled for me. He got down on one knee right there and showed me the most beautiful ring I have ever seen in my whole life.
All in all I would say I’m happy I waited for the man of my dream to ask me. I later asked him why he waited so long. He said he wanted it to be a complete surprise he wanted me to think that it was not going to happen, that way when he did ask I would be so surprised and it worked, I was defiantly not expecting that to happen. Now after the waiting game and all said and done I am glad he waited like he did.
