Well, thought I'd post an update to this. Haven't been in in a while, so....
Found out last week that the guy had a heavy dilemma (sp) when he asked (told) me to move out...."do I propose, or do I kick her out?" Well, we know which way he went.
Apparently. he was waiting until our 6 month anniversary to ask me to marry him, but decided instead to break up.
And has been trying like hell to literally buy back my affections....a beautiful diamond and amethyst ring (which I had unknowingly picked out), 2 dozen long-stemmed red roses, and a gift card to my favorite clothing store. All in the last week.
I told him to stop buying me things, that I was not going to go back to him, and I no longer was even remotely interested in marrying him.
On a happy note ( very happy), I've been seeing someone from my past again for the last few weeks (yes, I waited almost a month before I felt it was ok for me to do so) and the feelings that we'd had for each other have never gone away, and have in fact, intensified.
I think we're thinking permanent, but not marriage. I don't know if that is anything either of us want again, but who knows....
(BTW, it's hard to type when you can't see your cursor....just thought I'd mention it...)
