So I finally got the truck narrowed down and bought it... still looking for dedicated work truck though.

bought a 2004 f150 stx off my dad and have a gatormade trailer lined up...

so kicking back this past sunday I look over at my beautiful girlfriend and realize how much she's put up with... i was going to go out and get a used zero turn... looks like I'll be getting a walk behind for a little less instead because I booked us a cruise and bought her an engagement ring for christmas...

Taking the PLUNGE!!! so let's hope she says yes ha! :laugh:

Thanks guys!! I've had the ring since this past Sunday and it's been burning a hole in my pocket lol... going to propose on Christmas...

two days ago I met up (secretly) with her dad at a local bar and showed him the ring and asked for his blessing... thank lord he said yes lol the mans 6' 4'' and a solid 250 ha!

I have a 3 an a half year old and his mom bailed on him at 11 months so finding someone that my son gets along with so well was amazing. Can't wait to ask her to be my wife!

Yes very true... i'll take a walk behind for another year or so then get a zero turn... at least I'll have a beautiful wife by my side by that point.

Congrats man!! I think having a wife and a delay of upgrading to a ZTR is certainly worth it!
I definitely like the deal of secretly asking her dad.

I look forward to the day I find a legit girl and ask her father if I can marry his daughter.

Thanks man!!! I was with my kid's mom for 2.5 years and I thought I had the right one ha. This relationship I have now is something so different... I'm 21 and she is about to be 24... has her act together... (bought a house at 22, car paid for in cash... savings account building up) she has been doing really well for herself... and is very open with me and my son... she she's herself as another member to the family and treats my son as her own... so meeting someone that understood me and what I work for was awesome. She's a keeper that's for sure.

She has no idea I bought her a ring... I've been playing the money is tight past 2-3 months because I was saving up for it... so she'll def have a christmas to remember!

and if she doesnt say yes (God forbid) then I'll have me a nice zero turn ha!

It's a win, win!

That's awesome to hear. I'm jealous you have someone that really has her stuff together! More so than I do! Still live with my parents, unfortunately, I'm searching for houses as I type this, just need another year or so and a couple big profited installs for a 10-20% down payment and I should be set. My truck is definitely not paid for either! Lol.
So we're the same age, I had thought you were a little bit older than I am but I was wrong. I pretty much quit trying to find girls because all I'd end up with is a girl that's dumb as hell and doesn't understand anything in regards to real life. A girl that's a couple years older or the same age and has gone through school has a career or a business of her own and most important, has the maturity level I have, would be ideal, but extremely tough to find!
How'd yall meet?

There's no way from a money point of view a ztr is cheaper. Plus it's not just about money it's happiness and a life together. Things money can't buy.

haha... well guys she almost found the ring box (had it stuffed in my shoe in the closet) she decided at 4:30am this morning that she wanted to clean the closet lol... but I was able to steer her to do laundry ha to give me time to re hide it.

SOOOO I pop the question tomorrow sometime when I feel is right...

How'd yall meet?

I was selling insurance for State Farm and we were in a conference together... we kind of caught each others eye... spoke just a minute or two... she emailed me saying I was disruptive at the conference because I kept cracking jokes... we talked for a week or two I asked her out on a date.. about a year later we live together... just bought a puppy last month, are looking for rental properties to buy and she's supporting me 100% to go back into this industry... I couldnt have found a better one!

I was actually in the same situation as you about not finding girls... I had a nice apartment I lived by myself with exceptions of my son, new car good job (was in lots of debt though because I was 20 and thought I could afford my $25k car, $800 apartment, health insurance, car insurance and some credit card debit on top of it!!) we started dating and I actually went belly up bankrupct lost everything... I tipped toed around for a few months doing every thing I could for extra money... i thought when i told her I was filing bankrupcty I was going to lose her but she stuck by myside...I saved up money to buy my truck and going about everything almost 100% debt free. I have some medical bills that I owe that were not discharged fully but still working around those.

And I got $1500 off the ring because I kept joking with the lady selling it to me and she kept adding discount after discount... So it became less expensive than I wanted to spend on a zero turn thankfully lol
