That has to be so tough! I knew FI had the ring 3 weeks before he proposed, because he slipped and basically said so. He really wanted to make it special though, so he waited for his planned date. I know it’s tough, but you’re in the home stretch, with a man who loves you and wants to marry you, and that’s exciting! I think of it this way-the ring and the proposal got to be his special thing to give me, and letting him do it on his terms was the best thing I could give in return.

I know my SO has the ring right now and if he doesn’t do it this weekend I am going to be crazy. It’s so hard waiting when you don’t see any reason too, I know but let’s hang in there and hope it’s all happening for a reason!?

@daffodil89:  Hi there. I am still waiting for my proposal and my SO bought the ring back in July. Yup, it’s been half a year. (In his defense, he bought it back when we thought we were getting married this year, but still.)

I know it’s tough not to think about it, but try to put it in the back of your mind for a little while. Instead of wondering if it will happen when you see him, just enjoy the time that you spend together. Also, you could take up some new hobbies or something to keep yourself busy. 

Your day will come 🙂

@daffodil89:  he ended up taking me to our favorite Thai place and having them bring out dessert (banana spring rolls, yum!) with, “will you marry me” written on the plate in raspberry sauce. I understood that he wanted to wait so we could have that wonderful, romantic moment together. So, maybe your guy is planning, or maybe he’s just nervous. Either way, as hard as it is, try to just have a little more patience. He only gets this special moment once, too, and I’m sure he’s excited beyond belief that it’s with you

@daffodil89:  If it makes you feel any better, my SO has had the engagement ring since December…

…of 2012.

I cope by reminding myself that every week he doesn’t propose is an extra week I get to lose weight, so that when we are engaged, I’ll look unbelievably hot in our engagement pictures.

Oh, and I shop.

For every month I wait, I buy myself something pretty.
