In the movie Hitch, Will Smith states, “No woman wakes up saying, God, I hope I don’t get swept off my feet today.” It’s so true.

Hehe I was honest and told him that its what i wanted from the beginning. A proposal is more than just a big gesture or a milestone to check off your list. A proposal represents a commitment—a commitment to share life with this person, day after day, through the stresses and boredom of daily life, long after the high of saying yes and then saying “I do” passes. It’s a commitment to supporting their dreams and well-being with the same gusto that you put into your own and tying your future to theirs. It’s important to go into this decision with clear eyes, a lot of shared experiences under your belt as a couple, and much clarity and conversation before anyone ever actually gets down on one knee.

Have you ever intentionally listened to songs about heartbreak while being in a happy relationship?
Been, there, done that, biggest disappointment of my life. I also find now as things are getting closer, people are getting more excited for us. We had actually made half-assed attempts a few times, and eventually people stopped believing us that we would get to it.

If he hasn’t stopped by now, he probably isn’t going to stop later either. You’re still getting cute messages from him, and he is polite to your family. Going to social events together is a part of being in a happy relationship. This is a great sign that your relationship is going to last. If he invites you to everything he’s invited to, he is serious about this relationship. If you’re both committed to being in a long-term relationship, you’ll always find a way to work things out.
A step further – Long term relationship goals
My mom asked when we would have an engagement party, I told her I didn’t think it was appropriate since that sort of celebrates when the engagement is new, which we are clearly not.

Now, it’s not always the other partner who has the problem why some relationships don’t work, we all have faults like being overly jealous or you tend to control his every move and even check his phone. If your partner is still broken inside because of a failed relationship in the past — then he’s not yet ready. We’re not looking for rebounds here, we are aiming for long term relationships so if your partner is still not over his or her ex, that’s a bad omen. And some won’t even be able to hit the third-month rank.
They’re still together and welcomed their daughter Raddix, in 2020. Anyways, we never got married sooner because I was in college and then grad school and I always told him, “Don’t ever propose to me until I’m done with school.
