After reading many of the posts on here…I can see that I am not the only one that is sick of waiting! I am really getting to the point of extreme irritation with this. I almost lost it when I came home from work today and signed on Facebook and saw two more statuses that said “OMG IM ENGAGED!!!”. Really? REALLY? I feel bad because I dont know if I am being irrational with the way I am thinking…but I cant help it! What do you guys do when you feel like you just cant take it anymore?! I need to find a way to make myself not think about it…I realized this today because after I saw the posts on Facebook, he kept asking me “whats wrong?” and “is something bothering you…what happened??” I so badly wanted to say something to him about it but I feel like I am going to be getting on his nerves about it and that is the last thing I want to do!
HELP!!!! Suggestions please???

Oh man, I have so been there. FB is the worst and seeing those status updates that made me happy but sad at the same time.
But the feeling that you will get when you change your own status and the love that you will see from all the comments will be so sweet.
Honestly, your time will come. It may not feel like it right now, but it will come.
Waiting sucks, I know…I waited 6 yrs myself. But now that we’re engaged, i dont even think about all that. You won’t look back at all the waiting that you did. You will look forward to the new life you two will have together.

Yeah facebook is like a time bomb lol. Yes, I’m happy for them but oh so jealous. Like hey it was supposed to be my turn! lol I’m pretty terrible at waiting, but I do know a proposal is coming at some point so that helps.

I get that question too…”whats wrong?” It was bad at the end of last year and the beginning of this year when it seemed like all my friends were getting married. Most of them are married now and starting to have kids (which I am in no hurry for), so it has gotten better. Now, its other things that sneak up and upset me.
Hopefully, not too much longer!

@LovelyLady816: I’ve been there too!!! I just forced myself to forget aboHuntley saying maybe he’s justnot readyquite yet and stopped thinking about it, triedreally hard to focus on school and work. The next thing I knew he was proposing!! Time goes by much faster when you’re not paying close attention to it!!!!

@Juliepants: ROTFL!!! That’s funny!
FB is horrible when you’re waiting. I remember crying my eyes out one night cuz one of my friends got engaged (well acquaintance really) and it was the last straw for me. Me and my SO at the time were in Orlando with my parents for my birthday trip and I thought for sure he was gonna propose. Then I saw that status on the last night we were gonna be there and I bawled.
Oh good times.

Oh my god we are the same. Lets see…3 or 4 people i know have recently become engaged. And then i let it out on my SO and he KNOWS why. He told me not to compare myself to others. Well sooorrryy but everyone else i know is married with kids and has either been dating the same amount as us or less!!
Grrr…its frustrating. I’m with you. Its only become worse around the holidays lol.

Yeah I have been trying so hard to be patient but it is just wrecking me!
I was cleaning our place yesterday because my whole family is coming over for Christmas tomorrow and one of the magazines that I put on his dresser (from rogers and hollands) got knocked to the floor when I was putting stuff away and I noticed that one of the pages is half torn out! I dont know what this means!!!!!!! GRRRR!!!

hahaha I know exactly what you mean. Then, I feel like a really ugly side of me comes out as I judge–I mean, look at–the photos of “the ring”…etc…AHH!
May as well add me to the waiting list too. I even found out that my ring is going to be completed in less than 2 weeks! My SO and I have discussed that a proposal wouldn’t be on the horizon until Fall/Winter ’12…but who knows…

A few years after we started dating we had some “so where do you see us in the future” or “when do you want to” talks and we’ve always been on the same timeline which is nice. I think we started looking at rings for fun at like the three or four year mark. We also then had another talk like “what do you think in the next year or so?” (to get engaged) and so after looking at rings and talking about it I knew it was coming just not the exact day. But that was the best part because I wanted to be suprised! I didn’t want to focus on when and what he was doing soo much that I might ruin the suprise! I’d say just talk to him see if he has it on his mind in the next year or so…that way he isn’t asking what’s wrong, etc. Its always best to be on the same page. Maybe find something to fill your extra time with so you don’t think about it so much. Hope this helps and good luck!
