@Creiddylad:  You should be excited!!!!!  I’m getting excited for you!!!  (I used to be thomaj26, I just changed my username and I’ve chatted with you before so I’m familiar with your story)!

I would be really excited if my SO told a proposal story…any kind of story at all but he has not.  

The good news is that all the guys were talking about their proposals and sharing them, so you know it’s def on his mind haha.

@Creiddylad:  Well, I know that I had posted something (that I’ve since deleted) about my SO seeing me on the boards and wanting to share his perspective..and I totally got flamed last night by some (maybe bitter idk lol) bees that were like ‘This site is for venting about husbands/spouses be careful’….where I thought this was for men and women to participate lol.

Anyway, at the time I posted I was stoked like ‘My SO wasn’t upset at me for being on the boards, and cared enough to share his opinion about ring shopping’ but maybe that’s a bad thing.  I thought it was a good thing though!!  I’m still keeping it positive haha!  And I’m happy for you!!  When you are waiting it is hard…and when you DO start to feel progress in your talks its soo exciting because you know your wait wasn’t in vain!!

You should be happy and excited! I’m super excited for you XD

 

The most BF has ever ever talked about weddings ect is when I’ve asked for details on something or when he’s told me we’ve been invited to one (his sisters last year and yesterday he told me that a friend of his would be sending us both an invite to her soon). It’s probably a combination of him not caring about weddings and also not being really interested in what other people do. Also we don’t actually know many people to get married nor engaged yet (which is odd case he’s 27) so I guess there isn’t much to talk about XD

 

You SO just sounds completely adorable right now 😀

yes, I think we were talking about this the other night, my SO is a regular on another forum and he was telling me that someone had posted about proposing to their girlfriend and they were helping him come up with ideas of how he should do it and stuff. he’s even showed me a video of a proposal on youtube, the disney one with a lot of singing as he’s always threating to do that because he knows I would hate it. haha.

hope you’ll be getting your proposal well, all sounds good. 🙂

@Creiddylad:  I know what you mean tbh, I think some of the long-timers are finding the waiting boards to be less helpful than normal for them (loads more newbees seem to be getting engaged than normal I think?) and are having a little break – waiting chat is fairly active though Aithinne and a couple of others give regular updates (I put my “updates” there because they’re normally so small and pathetic it’s just not worth making a whole new thread XD).

 

And of course I’m excited for you! 😀 I love all the waiting bees and can channel my own waiting frustration into excitment for the rest of you 🙂

The boards do seem to be pretty quiet. All the bees getting engaged seem to ditch the waiting boards asap when their advice would actually be really helpful. 🙁

@Creiddylad:  Congratulations though! It sounds so exciting. You definitely won’t be a waiting bee much long.

It’s amusing how much fun guys can have when they see how much fun their own friends/other people are having. My SO has been very bubbly recently as his brother recently became engaged. It definitely gets them thinking.
