Oh my goodness. I feel like I can't even talk to my best friend about the status of my relationship or even joke with her about these things because the topic turns to "well you guys should AT LEAST be living together" or "him not proposing just makes it look like he's not committed"
We've been together for four years. I moved to New York from Virginia to be with him. His family took me in 3 years ago before I got my own place a few months later. We both have our work/school/commitments outside of our relationship that makes us who we are and we have the most bonded, loving relationship. We are only 22 years old. Since when does time dictate when a couple is ready to take larger steps in the relationship? We talk about the future, we know we are going to be together. We just like taking it easy. We don't have money, he just graduated and hasn't started his career, I haven't finished school yet. Aren't these things more important for our future? We are totally comfortable with the way things are. It's just so awkward when our friends are in a relationship for 6 months before they're moving in and getting engaged start telling us we should be doing the same thing. I've tried telling them to knock it off and that I'm deliriously happy right now but they still remark with "well it just seems like it should be this way..." SERIOUSLY?? What would you say in this situation? I can only put it nicely for so long before I start throwing tables
