My boyfriend and I have been dating for a little over a year - we started November 14 of 2007. I love him to death and I dread being away from him. I've gotten past the euphoric stage of a relationship where you're sure you want to marry them because they're perfect. I know his flaws, and I know that he's not perfect. But I also know that if he were to propose to me tomorrow, I would say yes without hesitation.
The problem is that I've given up a lot for this boy. First, the college I wanted. I was interested in NYU, but I live in Florida. He said that if I went to a college far away, he would break up with me because he didn't think he could do a long-distance relationship. I wanted to be an actress - it's the one career that I know I would be happy in. He told me that he would break up with me if I did that because I'd be gone for lengthy periods at a time working on movies or whatever, and he didn't want that. I considered doing the cop thing, but he said he didn't want me doing anything dangerous. He doesn't approve of horror movies or clubs either, both of which I'm a fan of. It really hurts that I can't share some of these things with him.
At the same time, he saved my life. No joke. When he met me, I was dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress from a previous relationship, the complications of which you would never believe. He helped me escape from that trauma so that I rarely think about the boy who did it to me anymore [whereas I used to think of him every minute of every day, no exaggeration]. He makes me extremely happy; he's very playful and caring. We don't get into that many fights, and if we do, we generally make up less than ten minutes later. He's someone that I can't see myself living without.
I've sacrificed a lot for him, but he's given me a new life. Is he worth it?
He asked me to marry him, and I said yes. =]
