I don’t post too often, but I’ve committed to not bringing up engagement or weddings with my SO. We talked about getting married next year some time, but that’s about it. We’ve been together nearly 8 years *gasp*, but we’re only 27, so we were still “kids” for some of that time. Anywho, I’ve been essentially waiting for about the last two years. We just moved in together a little over a month ago, and things have been good. Lately, HE has been indirectly bringing it up by saying things that begin with the phrase, “when we get married…” Also, about a month ago, we spontaneously went ring shopping, during which time he gave the jeweler specific instructions about the size, cut, metal, setting and carat that we wanted to see. Well…last night while lying in bed and having some “pillow talk” he randomly says, “I told the ladies at work how much your ring will cost and they said that was too much.” First of all, how rude of the ladies at work! Secondly, where in the hell did that come from? We have a trip to the Dominican coming up in Dec, but I REALLY hope he doesn’t wait until then to propose. I’ve been trying to be patient, but honestly, I can’t wait to be his wife! He’s a great guy, and even with his faults, I love him. I’ve been trying not to put pressure on him about this, because as some other bees have said, this is his thing. The proposal is his big deal. The bee helps of course… 🙂 Just wanted to share my good waiting day!

Oooooh! That’s very exciting! I know my OH has the ring and we have a trip planned in early October, which I can’t help but wonder about… and I’m bouncing off the walls! The Bee is such a good outlet! I’m the same, I don’t want to stress him out about it

@endofmyrope – It is amazing how the guys bring it up when the women get quiet..lol The same thing happened in our house. He probably talks about it more than me now – not that I’m complaining. I can’t believe that the women at work told him it’s too much to spend on a ring either. How would they feel if someone said that to their SOs??? Here’s to hoping you get your proposal sooner than December!

That’s awesome! It sounds like he’s definitely put a lot of thought into the ring! Just try to be patient and don’t ask many questions. You don’t want to ruin any surprises. It’s good that you made a promise to not bring anything up.
I know it seems like forever, but December really isn’t far off at all! It’s almost October, and your trip will be here before you know it! I’ll still be keeping my fingers crossed that he doesn’t make you wait til then!
Keep us posted!
