So we’re that couple that talks about marriage, family, and everything related but isn’t even engaged.I thought for sure it was going to be February or March because we figured August would be the best month for us.
February came and went.
March came and went.
We’re going on vacation this week and in my head, it’s going to happen. But the closer we get to the vacation, the more I doubt it will.
The plan was also, from the very beginning, that I WOULD NOT move in without at least a ring and a date.
I moved in. Friday.
That’s all. I just needed to get that off my chest. I’m very nervous and I’m worried that I’m going to be very disappointed.

A lot of women here can relate to how you feel 🙂 Although it’s hard to tell “when” it will happen, I’m sure it’s coming for you.
One lady wrote on here (don’t remember who though) that once we’re engaged, we’ll look back and laugh at how anxious we were getting. I don’t know, but for some reason that makes me feel better. I can totally picture that in a few months, a lot of waiting ladies *will* be engaged and will look back and thing “I remember those waiting day!” 😉
***fingers crossed for you***

@minie77: Considering how much we’ve talked about getting married in August, I’m a bit surprised that is hasn’t happened already. When we tlak about it, he says “just let things play out. I have a plan.”
Sure you have a plan. You’re planning to drive me CRAZY!

I moved in without an engagment too, although I told my SO it would never happen. So I know what that’s like.. We got engaged 3 weeks later though.
I hope it’s coming to you soon though! Good luck!

From one waiting girl to another, some words of advice: On your vacation, DON’T fixate on if it will happen. We recently went on a cruise for my birthday and I loved the cruise and being with my SO but I spent every day thinking, hoping, praying, making deals with devils and the like for him to propose but it different happen. We had been talking for months about getting engaged and he’s completely “on it” as he has told me repeatedly .I feel like I missed out on some of the fun of things because I was so fixated.
Have a GREAT vacation, relax, and let’s hope you (and all us waiting bees) hear the words soon! 🙂 Best of luck to you!

@SFreeman2187: I did the same thing as you… Moved in without a ring, expecting a proposal to happen ASAP. It didn’t. Here I am two years later, still waiting.
I’m not saying that will happen to you, but just be careful. Give it a few months, and if nothing happens by then, then speak up and say something.
