I have been so excited lately that I don’t want to contain it, so I want to share. SO and I have been having some great times lately. I feel like the chemistry is almost brand new between us again (we have been together for 10 years). Especially during New Years and Christmas, when holidays are usually our most stressed times, we were as strong as ever. The difference has really been since we’ve been talking about engagement the past several weeks. It seems that by me talking about it more often (he is the shy type), he has been excited too, and acts as if he feels much closer to me. I have also been sending him e-ring pics pretty often and he’ll tell me that they are nice and respond positively. Meanwhile, this whole cycle of events is making me extremely hopeful for an engagement soon. Any tips on how I should proceed? I don’t want to smother, as he is shy and I have always been the upfront one. I would like more concrete plans of engagement from him in the coming weeks (we are beginning to talk about engagement happening soon), but I don’t want to push too hard. Thanks for any suggestions.

@AirLaw: I recently got engaged after 10 years of been with FI. I know exactly how you feel, wat we did was set a timline once we started seriously thinking about getting married. So he gave me till the end of this year about 3 months ago and he kept with his timeline and proposed on new years eve!!!. During those three months i kept myself busy with other things such as work and apartment hunting….i tried my best not to bring it up and only talk about it when he did. I also did not want to push it at all. As the days drew near i knew that it would happen soon and when i couldnt contain myself i would focus on me. I know its super difficult…and its exciting and you wish you knew exactly when but trust me if you let it go just a bit it will be the perfect surprise. Even though i knew he would propose on new years eve…i still cried and was so excited! Keeps us posted!
