i’m sorry I know how you feel I have a feeling I will be waiting until October for my ring and it sucks. like you I dont really care about the ring I just want it to be “official” today I am in one of those screw it I dont give a damn anymore moods but last night I had a crying fit over itEmbarassed I get that it is important to the guy but this excuse of them waiting because they want it to be special is crap making us feel like this does not make it special sometimes I feel like saying “you know what would make it special? if you didnt make me feel like crap because I just want to start our lives together already and all I can think about is why you are doing this to me” but I know bringing it up wouldnt help. hopefully our time will come soon *hugs*

  • Wedding: October 2006

I know what you feel!  I wish he’d just propose this weekend so I can celebrate at work before I leave next week (graduating)!  My supervisor even told me that she wants to scream at him to propose ASAP so she can celebrate.  Ughhh!!  I want to tell him (since he knows all of my coworkers/supervisors really well) but he’ll see it as pressure.  I’ll tell him after this weekend though so it’s not.

I’ll tell you what’s helping though.  I just got this weird idea/feeling/fear/what-have-you that when we get engaged and then married, it’s like our story is over!  I know it’s not, and we have sooo many fun plans for when we’re married, but according to society, our story is over once we say “I do.”  I’m starting to enjoy the suspense of everyone excitedly following our progress towards engagement and kind of don’t want it to end!  It’s like wanting constant validation that we should be together to end, lol.  I guess that makes me a waiting-zilla?!  Whatever, as long as it makes waiting more bearable and, dare I say, enjoyable(!) then I’m ok with being a waiting-zilla.  I suppose I’m ready for our dating chapter to end, but it’s been a really good chapter and the ending just gets better and better!

This is the worst.. I know how you feel I went through that before we got engaged. We had the ring I knew it would be soon and he told me to start planning but it wasnt official, All I wanted was for it to be official. It happened and it will for you dont worry but i know thats so frustrating.

At least you know it is a sure thing. Four months can sure fly by. Hold on and wait for that special moment. Best of luck.

@KoalaWalla:I know how you feel as well… Are you sure it is going to be a 4 month wait? My SO will not give me any information at all but this… it is going to be before September and I am hoping that he might do it on our anniversary which is July 3rd.. who knows but it is also killing me to have to wait that long. I am just keeping my mouth shut. I like how they have no problem talking about the wedding and all but when it comes to the engagement NOPE better shut my mouth. So I told him no more talk until its official. Doesnt stop me from pre-planning and getting some ideas on my own…he he he

awww i’m sorry hopefully he got it for you, if it would make you feel better you contact the person and see if they could get another just to be on the safe side if he asks you again about a ring

Men are so stupid. If you have the ring, propose! I mean really. Like with my SO. After 5 years, I don’t care HOW you propose, I just want you to. I don’t care about the pomp and circumstance, I don’t want a big ring, I don’t want any of it. I just want to be able to move on to the next step officially.

 

That said, maybe he’ll surprise you and do it earlier.

@sherryberry: people keep saying the proposal is to them like the wedding is to us but I think we women are our own worst enemy on this one we get so excited for other girls rings and proposal stories it freaks them out and makes them feel like its a competition which cause them to take for freaking ever planning it out
