So….. I overheard SO talking to a friend about when he would propose, and it was either last weekend or this weekend. He asked me if i wanted to go hiking this weekend, and I think that’s when it will happen! I’ve been “waiting” for about a year now, so of course I’m very excited….. BUT i’m also having a bit of a meltdown. I can’t believe that our relationship will be taking this step so soon, and i’ll call him fiance instead of boyfriend…. all of a sudden, i don’t know if I am ready, even though i have been wanting it for so long. i know it’s just jitters, and i’m positive that it will feel amazing when it finally happens…. But did anyone else feel this way?

Be excited!! That’s awesome!! I didn’t stress when we got engaged, but I had a small freak out about 2 or 3 weeks ago, but it passed. I think I was just overwhelmed with everything going on in life right now. It’s exciting though!!!! Congrats!!!

@FutureMrs.browneyes: thank you, that made me feel a lot better! haha my mental response was a very emphatic YES, so i’m just going to keep reminding myself of that! 🙂 thanks again.
@future.mrs.c: i think it is just such a big change, so it’s natural to be a little overwhelmed. congrats to you, and thanks for the excitement and congrats! 🙂

SO i have an update- i was definitely still freaking out for a few days. but he proposed on Sunday, and as soon as I said “YES!” all of my anxiety disappeared, and being engaged feels so wonderful.
to any waiting bees who read this- i definitely nagged and pushed him 6-7 months ago. he finally realized how serious i was, and bought the ring. as soon as he did, i felt so relieved and went back to my pre-waiting self, and our relationship has been better than ever. he says that if i hadn’t nagged him, he probably would have proposed sooner because there would have been less turbulence in our relationship. i still think he kind of needed a push. either way, i definitely advise anyone who is feeling super stressed to just convince yourself that it will happen, and focus on being excited about all of your time together. when your SO sees how happy you are with him, he should WANT to take the next step on your own. also, even though i pushed him more than i probably should have, it really didn’t take away from the feeling of happiness when he did it.
