I flat out talked to my SO and told him how it’s literally driving me crazy waiting. He said he’s enjoying it ugh. No matter how much I want a hint he won’t budge. He said its something he wants to do the right way. Ask for my parents blessing without me knowing when or where and proposing without me knowing when or where. At the end I decided to just get something little out of him. I asked him will we at least be engaged by next year? He said yes, but then being mean and teasingly said no and he knows that was mean and said sorry. He did mention another thing because I told him I don’t even know if he has a ring and he said, “remember a while back when I was looking at stuff online and you wanted to know what and I wouldn’t tell you and you kept getting madder by the minute?” Just because he may have been looking at rings doesn’t mean he bought one. The only thing I might be sure of is a proposal by the end of the year I hope. Sometimes I wish he wasn’t so good at keeping secrets. It only makes waiting more antsy. :/

@katiecat08: Sounds like he’s just teasing you and trying to throw you off. I would try to not worry about it so much. I’m in an opposite situation, my SO has told me a little too much about my proposal (without me asking). In other words, I won’t be completely surprised. If your SO wants to surprise you, let him. I’m sure all the waiting will be more than worth it in the end 🙂

To @katiecat08: Well that sounds like good news…
In so much as you have exchanged some sort of LIFE PLAN… and you know his timeline.
Are you onboard with waiting that long ?
Sorry I don’t know you that well from WBee, so I am not familiar with your story (how old are you, how long have you been dating, waiting, etc)

Ahh yes this sounds all to familiar, I just had a conversation with my SO because I was feeling the same way as you. weve been together a little over 6 years and I havn’t been in a rush because I know we will be together always, but about a month ago it started ” the waiting be itch” I just want to take the next step for our relationship making that commitment to each other. Our conversation was short ha ha I said I know we have talked about marriage ive been thinking about things a lot lately … He says “I know” with a big smile (because he has seen me on here ha ha) and i say I am ready whenever you are and he replays “me too” … I just sighed and laughed and we both said I love you at the same time…. That was it…. Good grief no hints no nothing! … Sorry I can’t help you, but I hope your day comes soon. It’s silly to think about because if your always going to be together what’s the rush … but it gets to a point where you just want to take that step And have that commitment and say those vows… And the waiting is exciting yet drives you crazy but like most former waiting bees say … it’s worth it 🙂

@katiecat08: omg that’s great news!!! At least he is keeping it a secret. My SO just like @lovelee1: has also told me a little too much about the proposal. He can’t keep a secret for the life of him. even though i can speculate the day…I am not 100% sure…absolutely be excited…I am so sure he is trying to make super special..!!!

@katiecat08: Just try to hang in there. Have you followed Mr. Bee’s back up plan yet? Something about living my own life and loving myself…has really changed something in my SO and I’ve went from ‘not knowing’ anything to my SO sharing with me this past weekend that in two years will will be married and either have a baby or trying for one.

Honestly, he sounds like he’s being a little mean about it. I get that it’s all in good fun, but to get enjoyment out of something that is driving you crazy and upsetting you on a regular basis does not sound nice. I’m not bashing him, I promise! But if it is really upsetting you, I would want him to understand how much and why. I’ve seen a lot of bees come on here and after telling their boyfriend’s exactly how they really feel about waiting or not knowing when/if it’ll happen they find out that their boyfriend had absolutely no idea they felt that way. He can do it the “right way” without driving you crazy. A time line of a year leaves a lot of wiggle room for surprises!
Good luck 🙂

Ugh that’s the thing about my SO. He gets a kick out of my reactions and says I’m cute when I’m aggravated. My whole family loves to pick on me because I get so riled up which I’m trying not to. Least I know its happening sometime soon. I just don’t know how he’s going to ask my parents since he’s in SC and I’m here unless he calls them or comes up here and without me knowing, talks to them somehow.

Well. .I found out that no ring has been purchased. :/ It disappoints me a bit because now I feel like I’m really getting my hopes up for nothing. My SO just got hired for a seasonal job and he said he’s had his eye on a particular ring for a while but needs more money to get it. I just. .*sigh* Also since we’re both four hours away from each other, this job is going to monopolize all our potential time together. I understand he has a plan but I really wish I could be with him more.
