Excerpt (with author's permission):

By my senior year, I was so ready to get married. It seemed like everyone in our graduating class was engaged except for us, and we were the only couple that had been together since freshman year. I was dropping so many hints about marriage that I was sure I would get in trouble for littering. I mean, I'd had the wedding planned in my mind since sophomore year; if we waited any longer, the engagement would seem like an afterthought.

But Paul was not ready to commit.

"But we're still so young," he would argue, and "you're the first person I've ever dated."

"But that doesn't automatically mean that we aren't right for each other," I would argue back. "It's not like there's some rule that you have to date x number of people before you meet the right one, or that it's impossible to meet her before you reach a certain age. If we're right for each other, then we're actually really lucky because we've avoided painful breakups and years of loneliness."

While he couldn't argue with my logic, I did not receive a ring any time soon.
He saw no reason to rush into an engagement while we were both perfectly happy dating. To him, an engagement wasn't necessary to keep me exclusively his because the guys at our college would steer clear of a girl if they so much as saw her walking down the sidewalk with another guy.

As a girl, I was not so fortunate. At our small, private college, girls outnumbered the guys at least 4 to 1. In the minds of all the single gals on campus, the fact that Paul and I had been dating ever since freshman year was no deterrent. They would flirt every opportunity they had until we were engaged. I was eaten up with jealousy any time he mentioned the name of another girl.

What I did not know then was that Jealousy is the glue that holds dating relationships together. Soon, I found out how powerful Jealousy was.

Like I said, most guys typically ignored me because they knew that I was Paul's girlfriend. But one day, I was sitting outside the school cafeteria, waiting for Paul to join me for lunch, when Kevin, a pre-med I knew from economics class, came up and put his arm around me! I was kinda creeped out by this. He'd never even talked to me before, and I knew he already had a girlfriend. Three, actually. So I had no idea what was wrong with him.
