I don’t understand this at all.  I don’t know why a guy would make you wait, especially when he has the ring, KNOWING how upset it’s making you.

I think it’s a power play and a manipulation and it pisses me off for you and all the other girls that this happens to.

@siyioli:  You’re both in your 30s and you’ve been together for almost 2 years – I’d say you’ve been pretty damn patient!

If you know he has the ring already, you know the proposal is imminent. Let him plan it out and propose to you the way he wants to, the way you deserved to be proposed to. Don’t ruin the surprise! Remember, it’s really the only part of this entire process over which he has some semblance of control.

I can understand your anxiety – DH and I were together SIX years before he proposed (he proposed when I was 29), and I remember the whole waiting game being nothing short of agonizing. When it finally happened, though, it was completely worth the wait. For the record, I think the feeling of being newly engaged rivals no other feeling. When it happens, enjoy the hell out of it!

Just sit back, relax and breathe! He has the ring. He loves you, he wants to marry you and he wants to make the proposal perfect for you to show off to all your friends about. It will come soon so please try not to probe him about it. The surprise will be worth the wait!! Kiss

@siyioli:  As someone who waited over a year with a ring in her house, I understand. Going though every holiday with that ring in my house somewhere almost killed me. It certainly killed all the joy out of waiting. I was no longer gitty and just bitchy.

But whe it DID happen…omg it still suprised me and it still felt magical. I was in just as much disbelief as if I was never waiting at all.

 

I’ve been there girl. It sucks. Hang in there!

Wow that’s a lot of amazing trips. I’d just appreciate that and be patient. Obviously he’s going to propose soon.

@siyioli:  I remember your previous post and you wrote so lovingly about your SO! The advice everyone keeps giving me (which is not so easy to listen to but correct) is to trust that he will do it. You know he will propose and you need to trust him to do it and do it right. I keep telling myself that every day I wait is just him making sure the moment will be perfect. That it will be a magical surprise and worth every second of waiting. It really sounds like your guy wants it to be a surprise too and I know you are going to have an amazing proposal!! I know it’s so hard at this stage, and you feel like you’re going nuts and he doesn’t see it or understand your frustration, but he knows! I’m sure he probably thinks it’s funny in some way, but he knows how you feel. And he won’t make you wait much longer! At least I keep telling this to myself haha. I have no doubt that your proposal will be coming very soon! You know he has the ring, so you know he wants to marry you and is planning and thinking about it right now!! We’re all here for you when you need a moment to let it all out!
