03-24-2000, 11:16 AM
My boyfriend of 5 months just proposed to me!!!! I love him but hey I've only known him 7 months and have been dating him for 5. Do you think I need to wait and find out more about him. Don't get me wrong, he's terrific. He has a great personality,smart, funny, well liked by others, great career and future, treats me like the queen I am, and he is also a member of the SKEEPHI Family. I know what I have told a couple of friends in similar situations, so I'm just wondering what you think. Thanks Sorors for you advice.

Ooooh, I don't know if I should be the one replying to this, but here's my nickel plus three cents. I met my husband last August, through AOL Instant Messenger. We chatted for weeks, exchanged numbers, started dating, and he proposed for Christmas! We got married March 1st and I have no regrets.
I'm not trying to be the poster child for rushed nuptials. But consider all options and PRAY about it. If there's a strong relationship and friendship there, and if it's written, you both will be together sooner or later. Good luck to you both!

There is nothing wrong with a long engagement. I just got engaged three weeks ago, and we are not getting married until next March. Some people stay engaged for longer. Love is something that you feel regardless of how long you have known a person. I told my fiance the first night that I met him, that he was the one, and I was right!

Find a good premarital counseling clinic maybe at your church. Host a dinner party with all your married friends/family and discuss what it takes to have a successful marriage. And of course PRAY, girl if that man is as great as you say it should not take you two years to marry him!!
LOVE IS LOVE. YOU CANNOT MEASURE LOVE BY TIME TO DETERMINE WITH IT IS "PURE" OR "PURE INFATUATION". THIS IS WHERE THE POWER OF PRAYER COME IN........GOD WANTS US TO LISTEN TO HIM. MAKE SURE YOU ARE DOING THIS FOR ALL THE RIGHT REASON. MAKE SURE YOU NOW WHAT THOSE REASONS ARE.....MAKE SURE YOU ARE WHOLE FIRST.......YOU WILL BE MORE THAN FINE.
I AM EXCITED FOR YOU SOROR.....LOVE IS A BEAUTIFUL THING,,,RARE, BUT BEAUTIFUL!
PINK & GREEN LOVE

Well Soror,I think you are a wonderful person and I know that you know what is best for you. I don't want to tell you not to accept, but if you are not ready or not sure, you may want to hold off a little while. I just wanted to give you some love and hopefully see you in about two weeks.
