I think you'll be all right... I've been engaged to my fiance for about 6 months now and we're waiting for another year at least. It's kinda hard when you're apart, but if you're closer than 17 hours then you should have no problem. I make the trip every time I can just to see her. Trust me it's worth it.

number one word is THINK. Always think. Be your own Pooh-bear and think. I'm a teenager and engaged. I'll be what? 17 in June. If he pops the question and you feel you're not ready, like really not ready, like deep down inside you're not ready, then you're not ready. I know everyone else who's posted here has pretty much said the same thing. I'm engaged. Been engaged for about half a year now. Being only 16, my mom almost kicked me in the head and my siblings almost shot me. And you know what? I didn't care. As I sat down in my wonderful patio furniture chair while my now fiancee asked me if I wanted to marry him, I thought to myself, Do I love him? Do I want to be with him? Am I willing to make the sacrifice of having to wait? Am I faithful? Do I trust him? Do I trust myself? Is it worth it? Will I be happy? In the end will I regret it? Every answer was a yes, save for the last question which was a no. So I knew that answering yes to his "Will you marry me?" was the right answer. And after I had said it, I didn't feel an ounce of guilt, or doubt, or regret.

So think. That's all you'll have to do. If you're ready, say yes. If not, then ask if he'll wait. If he really, and truly loves you and cares for you, he'll wait. You'll both know when the time is right...

Weasel your a smart guy... He's right. It would be a huge mistake on your part to rush into to something your not sure about... You'd probably end up hurting him worse down the road and regreting your decision.

Me and my girlfriend have been together for eight months now. She lives 147 miles almost due North of me. It takes like three and a half hours to go up there. That sucks hardcore, but we talk on the phone every night for a few hours. I feel like she's the one, but I've felt that way once before too. So I'm taking it carefully. Plus, we're only sixteen. And even though I'm not in school anymore and work 35 hours a week and drive, responsibility doesn't make me an adult yet.

*gasp* Why aren't you in school? Go back!

P.S. She's not the one. Sixteen years from now and you won't be able to believe you ever wrote that.

Re: When to get engaged?

Oh, I almost got 2fast4u mixed up with 2kte4u.

Now I'm intrigued. I want to know if she got engaged and ran off to marital bliss... or not.

i agree, that if he loves you enough that he wants to marry you, then he will understand and wait for you if you tell him that it is too soon!!!

I agree, considering it's not like she was the one to revive this thread anyway.

Re: When to get engaged?

Yes but her advice was for something that happened almost 5 years ago. I was just simply informing her of that.

Re: When to get engaged?

True, but this is a great thread considering that person wasn't the only person to ever get engaged.

Re: When to get engaged?

Just because she wasn't the only person ever to get engaged, doesn't mean it is incredibly stupid and pointless to offer advice to someone who asked for it 5 yeaars ago and isn't even on this forum anymore.

Sorry for the claws, but it seems obvious to me.

anybody who needs advice about getting engaged can come to this forum and look at the comments.......my advice was in general, not particularly to that one person!!!

Re: When to get engaged?

I want to get married. Not because it's what your supposed to do, but because I want to be able to wake up to the man of my dreams every morning. I love thinking about him before go to sleep and the moment I wake up. Waking up next to the man I love would be like the icing on my cake.

...But that's just me. I'm a hopeless romantic...and I'm very tipsy at the moment.
