My boyfriend has asked me to marry him more than once, butIve never said yes.
The question is nevermade in a grand proposal type of route like in the movies or viral YouTube videos, but my heart still melts every time he asks because I know, find and feel how sincerely and seriously he wants a future for us.
Ive lost counting of how many times hesasked me. But I recollect the first time he popped the issues to, I answered with merely a simple nods and a blank face.
He knows why I wasnt ready to answer the first time, but he still continues to ask even though all Ive dedicated him in response is silence.
I love him, so technically theres no reason we cant move forward to the next step. But I dont think theres a difference in getting married today or getting married a few years from now.
But then again, wheresthe sense in awaiting if you know youloveeach other?
We havent known each other for long, but when it comes to relationships, quality is much more valuable than quantity.
The relationship isnt defined by the amount of time youve been together, its defined by the quality of time spent together and the memories created in that time.
During the short time Ive been with my boyfriend, I feelas if Ive known him for years. And since the working day I realized my impressions for him, all Ive wanted is to be with him. Not just today, but for good.
My silence and blank face where reference is proposes to me dont mean I dont want a future with him. I want to scream YES ! each and every time he asks me.
It pains me that Im not able to do it, but Im sorry, I merely couldnt find it in me tosay yes.
Marriage isnt just about the two of us. Its about me, and its about him. Each of us areseparate beings outside of the relationship.
I still have dreamings to seek and fulfill, and he does too.
Before marrying him, I wanted to achieve my dreamingsand be the best in my chosen career.
I wanted my boyfriend to be proud of me. I wanted him to be proud hes with an accomplished daughter. I wanted him to wed an accomplished woman.
Bygiving all my best in my chosen route and achieving my aim, hell be able to do that.
Ive always thought we were still young. We still have a good life ahead of us an exciting, young adult life. We can still do whatever we want and be young and happy together , without wedding. But now, my mind is starting to change.
My friends ask me which will I choose: My career or my boyfriend?
The answer now is very clear in both my head and my heart. I dont hesitate to say Ill select him over my career, and Ill prefer my family over my work.
So the next time my boyfriend asks me to marry him, my answer is likely to be yes.
You have all the time in the world to get a job and build a career, but findingsomeone who will love you unconditionally is a once-in-a-lifetime find.
