A few people have told me to ask him. I might be old fashioned, but I think it's his job to ask me. Kind of like, I was happy he told me he loved me first. There is something that just melts my heart, thinking about him down on one knee asking me to be with him forever. I know it'll happen in time, and that's part of why it's so hard to wait, we have NO IDEA of when it's coming. It's always a little hard for a woman to give up the reigns and let her man drive. But that's just me.
I totally sympathize. I'm a planner, we joke that I'm the relationship secretary, I keep everything organized. So, it's hard to just let things evolve as he's ready...I think my guy's planning something for tomorrow, but if not...:-( It's not about finding someone you can live with, it's finding the person you can't live without.
I was going to, but he beat me to it :P I even had a ring for him.
I hate having roles defined based on genitals. Sorry to be so blunt, lol. And because that's important to me, I also knew it was important for me to marry someone who didn't have certain gender roles assigned in his mind.
A man who would have turned down a proposal from me just because I'm a woman would NOT have been the man for me. But that's just my opinion and what works in my life.
I think I picked a good one. I have a baby, and didn't have to life a finger at the hospital and the first few weeks after, when he was off work (except when breastfeeding, and when I wanted to, of course!) He handled the diapers, the clothing, and never tried to make me feel like it was MY job.
