Question

Dear Panel,

My problem is that Kevin wants us to get engaged before he leaves. I know he wants to do so because he doesn't want me getting with any guys while we are apart.

How do I stop him from rushing it and drop the hint that I really want a special engagement?

Dear Panel,

My name is Jen and I am 17.

I love my boyfriend more than life itself and lately we talk about spending the rest of our lives together.

My boyfriend is 17 as well and is the sweetest, nicest boyfriend ever and all I want to do is be his forever.

We'll Be Apart this Summer

We both live in England right now but the problem is, he will be going to California for the summer. While he is gone I will be moving to Louisiana. Consequently, when he gets back I will be gone. THEN in November he will be moving to Alaska.

By next summer we will both have finished our senior years and at that time we plan to begin our lives in California (where we are both originally from).

He Wants To Get Engaged

My problem is that Kevin wants us to get engaged before he leaves. I know he wants to do so because he doesn't want me getting with any guys while we are apart. I know that I won't and have told him so but I think he is still nervous.

I know I want to spend the rest of my life with Kevin, and since I know that we will, I don't want us rushing into things. (like getting engaged) I want our engagement to be special, so I can remember it forever.

How do I stop him from rushing it and drop the hint that I really want a special engagement?
