@Lyssie:  I can totally relate! My boyfriend told me in September 2013 that he had begun his hunt for my ring and I was so overwhelmed with excitement that I couldnt contain myself and asked him (more like pathetically annoyed him for days) for a time frame of when he was going to do it. He said before feb 2014. I think it really helped because if not, just waiting would drive me nuts!!! … Maybe you could ask him for a general range?

I know my boyfriend has the ring in his possesion at the moment and now that it’s finally Jan 2014…the clock is ticking and I’m just counting down the days. 

I’ve started wedding prepping a little bit and that helps distract me from the wait. I read up on churches, venues…colours etc. 

Hang in there, I’m with you and I bet several others are too! 

Hugs and Good Luck!

I highly recommend mentally start planning out where you might go to get married, dress styles, etc. so that you can keep busy in a way that will be useful later.

@Lyssie:  oh I’ve been way off with my intuitions too, I thought it was going to be a cliched holiday proposal. ugh! and yeah getting the time frame out from him was definitely not an easy task.

anyway Im pretty sure he’s not going to have a problem with you looking at bridal stuff. I mean especially now that the ring is in his possession ! 

As long as you don’t force the researching and planning on him too before the proposal happens he shouldn’t have a problem ..which I’m sure you already know.

Other than Valentine’s day, do you guys have any special occassions coming soon? anniversaries..birthdays?

Keep us posted about when it happens, I am excited for you ! x

@Lyssie:  EVERYONE will tell you to try not to think about it…so much easier said than done!

My story is essentially identical to yours–we had designed a ring and I was led to believe that he hadn’t picked it up yet. Despite that, every time he got down to tie his shoelace, I basically went into tachycardia. Oddly, when he finally did propose, I was completely surprised!

I was able to distract myself a little bit with the holidays and I ended up getting engaged on the 22nd. As your engagement period is going to revolve around wedding planning and might put the things that you like to do on the back burner, I might recommend taking the time now to pick up something you enjoy. If you like to play an instrument, learn a new song, or if you do something crafty, start a new project. 

Good luck! And it sounds like it’s coming soon, so congrats in advance. 🙂
