Ok so I’m planning on asking my girlfriend to marry me and I have an idea of when I want to do it but her friend is suggesting that I wait until Spring. I want to do it in September so that we can get started on the preparation stuff since we wont be together after the end of November when I graduate from school and get a job. (she doesn’t graduate until next December) Does asking her sooner make it easier to get started on that stuff or should I wait until Spring as her friend suggests so we have a shorter engagement (which is the reason she suggests I wait, apparently my girlfriend wants to be engaged just long enough to plan everything). If I waited until Spring, I’d have to propose over a short break just to leave her again since she’ll still be in school out of state, and I’d hate to do that to her.
Honestly, I have a feeling I’m going to do it in September regardless but I thought I’d ask the people who know better than I do!
God Bless and thanks!
