You gave me a ring and that represented a promise. Everyone has a right to change their mind but I also have a right to be upset.
So props to you if you’ve also put your special day together on your own. And congratulations/beware if you have recently became engaged.
Getting sick in front of one another. Food poisoning or a nasty case of the flu. It’s good to know your partner is going to stick around and help take care of you, not bolt when things get gross.
Engaged: Love means putting in effort. It means doing your best to create a life that both of you can be happy with.
You were my forever before we had promised each other to be. You were my light at the end of a long, winding tunnel.

Stop worrying if he likes you. Worry if you like him. You are equal players in this relationship.
