Unlike you I was irritated and waiting. Mostly because we knew we wanted to get married, lived together, had health scare and had money. But for the happy part… he started talking more often about a month or two before the proposal. It was nothing I didn’t know from our prior talks about our future but talk like he was uber excited and saying things like ” you have to love me forever” goofy stuff like that and always threw in words like “always” and “forever” that was adorable and seemed new to me. Turns out he had the ring that whole time:) I just had to wait for him to be ready but it was worth it because he has jumped into this whole heartedly and I love his excitement! Good luck!

@MrsHalpert:  Hi!  I have waiting stories lol!!

First off-nice to make your (online) acquaintance!

I do have happy waiting stories lol.  I have always been ready to marry my SO…and was just anxious to do it sooner rather than later.  SO always had the same timeline-finish grad school, get a job, propose.  When he used to talk about it, all I used to hear is that it would be YEARS away and it felt like forever!  

Last talk we had is that he wants us to move, have some fun, travel and he will be proposing after a year or so!  I don’t mind waiting at all anymore, because once you find someone, you are totally willling to wait as long as needed!!  He tells me that people ask him when he is going to propose, friends, family, etc, and his answer is always the same:  Once I finish school and get a job! I can’t wait!!

Good luck to you!

@veryberry13:  yeah I’m okay about talking about it now but before we were doing the whole wedding I was very much traumatized. He was definitely putting pressure to get me to commit forever and not in the way of jewelry or a ring.

@MrsHalpert:  I think you’re definitely getting closer! My DH brought up wedding/marriage/baby names on four occasions in the three months before he proposed. I remember being shocked! (Since he was still referring to engagement as “that thing that might happen some day in the distant future” the day he popped the question!)

@elliptical2013:  I can see where that could be seen as weird…but you two are together and it’s working and I think it makes for an awesome story. Cool

@MrsHalpert:  And it IS like making new friends! I have to be careful…lol…because lately I’m on this site all the time like it’s my new job lol!  Today I was NOT productive at work because I’ve spent the entire day dealing with waiting dramas that elliptical has heard about and been helping me through.  It’s cool though because if you do have a bad waiting day or get jealous over something silly (my case, FSIL loooong story you can read the post if you’d like), the bees are here to help talk you down and set you straight!!

That’s definitely a good sign that he talks about marriage with others including you. Something about this makes it more real in my opinion–once the word gets out, it is on the way to happening! Yay!

Yes, my SO (of 6 years) and I have been talking about marriage very often for a few months now. We are both very serious and I know that a proposal is coming. Like you, I am not exactly sure when, but my guy said “soon” this past weekend. Like you, I am not impatiently waiting, but I am waiting lol. My SO already has the ring and has had it since June, so it is real.
