every girlfriend's dream is to hear his boyfriend proposes marriage to her. when my husband proposes to me i had a mixed emotions, i felt so happy and at the same time i felt kinda sad that i think that would say goodbye to singlehood. what made me say "YES" to him is not just because i loved him but because i can see myself living only with him. i can't imagine myself getting married with other men even with higher standards with him. it may sound corny but even if we only got steady for 7 months i could feel that he is the right one. now that we are already husband and wife im so lucky and im happy that i made the right choice. :)

I never made a mistake like you when i committed myself to be married to my husband now. Even when we were still lovers at the beginning , but we know for sure that we will end up in marriage, though, because i could feel it in my heart that he is the man that i long to be with for the rest of my life. I could still recall the time before i meet him that i wasn't sure about anything especially when it comes to boyfriend . The feeling was like i'm just waiting for the man to come and meet me and when i saw him and started to get to know him that's the time im sure of everything that i'm not scared to commit myself to a marriage life because i already know that the man i marry is the only person who loves me truly in a way without condition and i know we love each other so much too.

I said YES because I cannot afford to loose him. I was also ready that time to take the next step in my life - MARRIED LIFE. Just like you I cannot imagine myself with another person.

Actually he just recently asked me, and I did say yes, so now a wedding to plan for September! What made me say yes, how much time do you have? lol It's the total package, he loves me like no other ever has, he loves me for who I am, and he understands fully why I love what I do, I'm a wildland firefighter. He understands that because he is a firefighter also, however he takes care of burning buildings! He also made it clear that he could not see is life without me in it. We actually knew each other for 10 years, 6 years ago, neither of us told the other how we really felt, and then recently we re-connected, and laid our cards on the table, and told the other how we felt and how we had felt those years ago. So, neither one of us wanted to lose the other again. So he made sure that wasn't going to happen and asked me to marry him!

When my husband proposed to me, I said no. That was only because I thought he was joking around. Then he showed me the ring and I said yes. We dated for 5 yrs before we were married, so I knew that he was my perfect match. We have been married for 22 yrs. It wasn't all easy times~ especially in the beginning~ so be patient.
