I know how you feel, girl!  I’m such a huge control freak, and it kills me that my guy is not fitting perfectly into my timeline, lol.  I feel like I should definitely have had my ring and proposal by now, but alas it has not happened.  Keeping my fingers crossed for you & me both!

Unfortunately if you want your guy to propose then there’s nothing you can do but wait. Some guys prefer to be left alone and want to figure it out on their own. I think you showing him the less expensive ring should speed things along. 

I know how you feel with the time ticking. I would prefer to be married next summer, but as with you… time is ticking. I have to let my SO do his thing and propose on his terms. For me at least it’s more important to do things right and maybe take longer. 

You’ll just have to wait for your SO to propose and then make plans from then on. Or you could start planning without a ring. 

Good luck and I hope you don’t have to wait too long!

Welcome! I know it’s suck, but the good thing about the Waiting Cycle is that it, well, “cycles”: you won’t feel like this forever. You’ll move through the phases and get a bit of a break from the agony now and then 🙂

Hang in there, I know it’s frustrating especially because it seems like you’re a planner (I am too). He loves you and made a commitment to you and that is all that matters. Do you have any hobbies? I use my hobbies to escape maybe it will help you. I do hope he proposes soon; just to give you a peace of mind.

Perhaps you can get a definite time line than you currently have. For me it helped for my boyfriend to say “I plan to propose by the end of September” (he has since asked for a 1 month extension… pfftt..). But prior to that it was “sometime in the next 2-4 months” and before that it was just “sometime soon, after I’ve started my new job and saved up money”

Since he has a deadline he has to get going and plan things. My boyfriend isn’t the proactive type and it has helped to remind him every once in a while that they deadline is coming up. I straight-out asked him if he would like me to just not bring up proposals/wedding at all and he said he would rather be reminded once in a while. 

If you have a set time period, then depending on your guy you can just leave it at that and wait or bring it up every once in a while.
