Ok, long post.. sori.. i have been freaking out since last night.. and i really don't know what to do...would u please help me out?? My bf just proposed to me last night.. and he did it the old, romantic fashion way,.. when i reached my apartment from work, the whole place was lit up with candles, there were rose petals strewn on the floor leading to my bed room, soft music was playing in the background.. I thought he was making it up for Valentine day since we didnt get to spend V-day together (he has to fly back home as one of his uncles was admitted to a hospital)..Stupid that i was, i quickly ran to my bed room.. On my dressing table, there was some straberry and dark chocolate that i love and i found a bouqet of roses on my bed and besides it, i found the ring.. the ring was gorgeous and when i turned around, i saw him, grinning from ear to ear and he popped the magic question.. I was so taken aback by the whole thing, i said "pardon me", he asked me the question again and i said "HEH?!?" The whole night became so awkward after that as he was expecting an answer and i was just trying to save the night..when he left he said "i thought we wanted to the same thing" Don't get me wrong, i wanna get married to my bf one day.. but the problem is he's 6 years older than i am, he has a stable career, great salary, owned his own house etc.. but i have just graduated 2 years back from college, i have just started carving out my own career.. im not in that place just as yet.. We have been seeing each other for a year and a half now.. and i have just met his folks a few weeks back during his family bbq.. they were really lovely people... I have been avoiding his calls today and didn't exactly reply to his numerous text messages as i didnt want to say or type the wrong thing that would make things worse.. my reaction last night was bad enough as it is.. but i really don't know what to do now?? i know if i keep avoiding him it's just gonna make things worse..
