My SO and I have been dating for 5 years. We have been seriously talking about marriage for the last year. I’ve know for the last few months that he has been saving for the ring. I also know that he has purchased the ring and should be getting it in the next week or so. He’s horrible at hiding things or maybe I’m just good at figuring things out. He has planned this trip to Atlantic City for the weekend of January 25th. I’m positive that this is when he will propose. The problem is that the closer it gets the more anxious I get. I feel like the next few weeks are going to feel like a few years. The days will drag on. How am I supposed to think about anything else?
Anyone else in this situation?

I know how you’re feeling! Although probably not to the same extent since SO and I have only been together for 2 years. We knew we wanted to marry each other a few months into the relationship but lately the serious talks about marriage, timelines and rings have been happening more often. him asked him “where’s my ring?!” (I couldnt find the class ring I always wear) and he looked shocked and quickly replied “it’s in the works!”. Clearly we were not talking about the same type of ring but its exciting nonetheless!! Now I, like you, am antsy and expecting it soon. I think it’s totally normal to feel that way but since for you it may be happening so much sooner just try to relax and enjoy your time with him leading up to the big moment :-). I know mine is a little ways away so I just read the forums here, look for decor inspirations and try to keep from fretting. It’s so hard! Good luck!
