I was just saying to my boyfriend the other day, we've been together for nearly 7 years and staying together for nearly one, that 2013 has been the year for engagements and marraiges... Two of my colleagues got engaged, a friend that used to work with me and also a couple of people I used to know (how do you used to know someone?), got married. And 2015 is also going to be a bad year for these occasions as the people who got engaged in 2013, will most probably get married then.

I've always joked with BF that I'll give him five years and then I want to be engaged, yeah, that never happened. Said to me the other day that it was his plan all along, I've invested too much time with him now to break up with him. That was always a fear I had, I saw these people around me, be together for years and then break up, invest years and then it doesn't work out... Its something I don't want to happen to me.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not with him because of the time I invested, I'm still there because its where I want to be.

I'm also very grateful that I've managed to avoid the "When you getting married?" question. The thing is, I need to be asked first. Although we have talked about it, quite often too, he's waiting for something. Can't always keep track of what it is, I know the one thing is that he wants to pay the car first, and that will only be in Nov 2015... Hey, maybe 2015 will be my year. I got a brilliant tidbit from a friend...
"When you getting married? Then you get married... When is the baby on the way... Then you have a baby.... When is the second one on its way... And so it goes. Nevermind the 50 million opinions you have to deal with on how to plan your wedding, what to wear etc etc, then it starts with parenting advice.... Good luck and enjoy it. No use getting annoyed, it never ends."
I think that is the best, because it is sooooo true!!

So I guess just to hang on and my time will come, and then the amazing journey starts on how to tell people to mind their own damn business!! :D
