Okay, so my boyfriend just found out this week that he got a promotion within his company, but in a different state. I am super excited for him because I know how much this means to him. We have been dating for over 17mos now and I love him very much. We are a pretty serious couple. Well, he asked me to move with him.....This is such a struggle for me because I am afraid of how my parents are going to react to the news.
I was raised in a very conservative home. So I am sure everyone knows what that means help me out here, "NO MOVING IN UNTIL YOU SAY "I DO"... I know this seems like a easy solution, but really it is not. Lol, I do not want to bore you guys with my life story.... I feel so lost right now as to how to approach them about breaking the news to them. They have done so much for me and I am very blessed for everything that they have went through for me....But at the same time, I feel like this is my choice...
My boyfriend and I have already talked about getting engaged next year, and then try to get married between 8-12mos. So I know that he does want to spend the rest of his life with me, but at the same time I know I am taking a risk at going down there without any guarantees... He took this job because he knows how much I love this state... He is such a great guy to me... (I'm sorry guys I'm very new to this and I know I'm rambling, but I really do not have anyone to talk to about this)
So, I will cut to the chase, I am under a lot of pressure right now with what I should do... How do I approach this situation with my family? I am the only child and this definitely is not going to be a piece of cake... I do not want to hurt anybodies feeling and plus I'm a daddy's girl (so I really value his opinion). I pretty much already know that they will not go for this. I am very torn because my bf wants me to go with him... Lol I am beating myself up about this really bad. My brain is killing me... :(
Well ladies, thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear for you. This girl could really use some wise advise. :) I hope everyone has an awesome week!
