Hi ladies! I know this isn’t a new topic as I’ve been reading post here for a couple weeks and realize I am in good company. I know I am not the only soon-to-be-bride-to-be (lol) that has gotten pretty impatient waiting on the future FI to pop the question. However, I need a little personal advise and possibly some encouragement before I lose what is left of my mind. 🙂
Short story, me and the Mr. have been together for almost 6 years. He is truely an amazing man and I love him dearly. He is amazing with my son (previous relationship), respectful, honest, hardwording, trustworthy, funny and easy on the eyes. The relationship has been slow and steady with plenty of rocks thrown in to make sure we were meant to be. And we are.
In April though, after waiting 5plus years I told him as much as I loved him I was walking if we didnt take it to the next step. I told him he has until its time to sign my new lease. If I renew the lease (a year) I’m moving on. After thinking on it he came back and made a beautiful, heartfelt delcaration and said he would push his timeline up (he’s sorta anal..lol) and propose before my lease was up.
SO..I didnt renew my lease, I’ve packed up the house and we are set to move in together in 1-2-3-FOUR days! BUT he hasn’t popped the question yet and its driving me bananas. Like, PMS but worse! I know he is a man of his word because he always do what he says he’s going to do and he doesn’t take things like this lightly. BUT I feel like I am going to lose it waiting. I thought it was going to happen last month and since it hasnt I just cant seem to wait patiently anymore.
Please help me not ruin this for us both!

@fearlessdiva: Congrats on moving in together! 🙂 I know how you feel! I have been with my FI for 7 1/2 years and he JUST proposed 3 weeks ago. I know it’s hard to wait and so cliché to say, but you just have to be patient and know that it’s coming, because it sounds like it is!! =^> He sounds like a guy that puts a lot of thought into things, so maybe he’s just trying to make the proposal perfect. Good luck!

@Heidi11: Thanks Heidi11! It’s cliche but true nonetheless. Just be patient! eek! He does put thought into EVERYTHING. It’s the thing that I love about him and also what drives me crazy. Its like just DO IT already. I guess a part of me is scared seeing all of my stuff boxed up and at his place. Saying goodbye to my old life, with one toe dipped into my new life (if that make sense). I feel like I can’t go in fully because I dont have the ring, even though we’ve already been planning the weddding. LOL! Thank you for your response and CONGRATULATIONS! I am so happy for you and can’t wait to read about all of your exciting planning. Best of luck to you and your FI!

My SO’s lease is up and he’s moving in with me…tomorrow. I told him I’d really prefer to be engaged before he moved in, but the ring is being made so that’s good enough, I suppose! He did volunteer to stay elsewhere until it came in and he proposed. He’s like your guy in that he does his research in things; thinks everything out very thoroughly. Hopefully soon we’ll both be swapping proposal stories!

My fiance and I moved in together last August…into the house he bought last November…and he didn’t propose until April. He hinted, but I cried plenty of times along the way. It was hard to explain to him why it mattered so much, too, because everything is so wonderful with him and I don’t need anything to change. ANYWAY…move in with him, and give him six months. If you don’t hear ANYTHING, bring it up. Then…=/

I don’t know if I’d say this 3 years from now, but as of now I think I’d wait for my BF to be ready, however long it takes. I’m already plenty anxious (after just under 3 years together), but I don’t think I could walk away if he didn’t propose. I know I say this now, but I’d rather be with him as his girlfriend, than lose him because of a deadline. And especially since you say yours is so special, isn’t he worth waiting for? I read this somewhere else, what’s more important to you, the proposal or the man? I don’t think there’s a right or wrong answer, it just depends on your priorities and what or who will ultimately make you happy.

Hi ladies! Sorry that I am so LATE updating you guys but guess what..HE PROPOSED! YAY! It happened on July 4th. He said he’d never propose on a holiday because it was cheesy and thats exactly what he did. Slickster! 🙂 Anywhos, we’ve already set a date and I’m going to see our venue on Sunday. I’m happy, nervous, excited and everything else. Thanks for your support and I’ll be sure to keep you all posted along the way!

@Heidi11: I agree with you. My DH is the kind of guy that puts a lot of thought into things, he wanted to be 100% and it was perfect timing. 🙂
