What to do? Wait it out, or move on. [The obvious choices.]
Full disclosure: I'm an expert. Been married three times.
So, I've been trying really hard the past 2 weeks to think of a way to win my ex-fiance back. Evidently, I failed miserably at that, hence my thread discussion because I'm getting kind of desperate and I was hoping some of you guys could advice me accordingly? I know this forum may not be the best location, but since it was a speakeasy board, I was hoping someone could assist me.
Basically, we're both working adults and have been together for the past 3 years, and as things progressed on, I finally proposed to her late last year. She said yes, and we started planning for the wedding due to take place late this year. Two weeks back, we had a minor disagreement over one of the arrangements regarding the wedding and she stomped off.
Normally, I'd leave her to cool off whenever she's mad before we talk things out amicably, and this time was no exception (I thought she was just stressed out and I was planning to apologize). I gave her a couple of hours of space and when I tried to call her, I realized she had turned her phone off. In fact, she actually kept it off for the next 2 days and none of her family members (or me) knew where she had disappeared to.
I was pretty much losing my mind with worry when I got the text from her, asking me to meet up. You guys can see where this is headed - she meets me to return the ring, saying that she can't marry me and that she's been thinking about it ever since she said yes but was too caught up in the moment to actually think it through until our disagreement. She says that I'm a good guy but isn't sure she can spend the rest of her life with me, and that it's a problem with her, not me.
I want to know what you guys think and if there's any advice or tips on getting her back? It really feels like she got cold feet and decided to run away from the relationship because everything was overwhelming her. Do you guys think I'm right on this or am I just being delusional? I really do want to spend my life with her, despite whatever has happened and I'd do whatever it takes to win her back.
Appreciate any input.
