I thought I was the only one. I am going on a one year engagement and do not have a wedding date set as I have not yet finished graduate school. Praying God will allow me to pass my two of three Praxis tests soon. His mom wants to meet me. I am one point from one test and thirteen points from the other.

Me! Wish I could prepare myself and not get my hopes up so I won’t be disappointed like last year. But last year was the first time I was even possibly expecting it . . . so I fear this year will be even worse. Absolutely don’t want to be a brat about it but biting my lip and holding back the tears is a huge holiday bummer.

Nope, I hated them when I was waiting.  Actually, Christmas has never been my favorite time of year for a number of reasons, but I super hated it when I was waiting!!!!!

I’m not dreading them, I just know there will be a part of me that is hoping he’ll be proposing every single time we’re together during the holidays.

But, I do sincerely hate all of the ring/proposal commercials that are coming…they make me want to heave.

Oh, I’m totally dreading the holidays.  I love Christmas and my SO knows it.  A Christmas-time (not Christmas Day, but sometime around that) proposal would be a dream for me.  But I know it isn’t going to happen 🙁

Granted, I never thought I’d get married aagin, but when I was alone, I used to laugh at the poor saps in the ad who were cooerced into spending wast sums of money on a rock because DeBeers told them that’s what their girlfriend wants and  the bigger the rock, the more you love her.

I’m not dreading the holidays, but I’m afraid I may set myself up for disappointment. About a month ago, while talking about getting married, I mentioned to my boyfriend that I’d like a ring for Christmas.. he was actually receptive to the idea and we went ring shopping a few weeks after. He didn’t buy anything, but he took down the information on the ring I fell in love with. My hopes are up.. But something tells me when Christmas rolls around, I will be disappointed and won’t get a ring at all. :/

I’m actually dreading the holidays because I DON’T want a Christmas proposal. I don’t think it will happen, but I will feel much better once January hits!

I love the holidays and all the family time, but lately it has been just so exhausting. I am so sick of family bugging me about it. And doesn’t it seem like they always target you, and completely ignore him when asking this?? Like I become cornered by the turkey with this really worried look on their face that we’ll never get married (its only been 3 years so I’m not in panic mode yet… but still dreaming for a surprise)

I am so totally apart of this group! It’s not even the holidays either – I dislike seeing Kay Jewelers commercials where the woman is “so surprised” to open a ring box and find an – oh my gosh!- a ring. Bleh. It makes the moment awkward between the SO and I. We just kinda sit there like ‘uuuuuuh, okay.’ We’ve talked about getting married, and he’s even mentioned that he would “marry me tomorrow if he had the money,” so it always makes us laugh awkwardly. We know it’s something we want, but it’s just weird. LOL

Nope! I wasn’t really dreading them before, but now I’m definitely not since my boyfriend just texted me earlier about going to New York City to look at rings around Christmas!

I’m dreading the holidays. I can’t stand, with extreme passion, some of my husbands family members. The holidays are pure torture for me. I never have fun. But it goes beyond just not having fun…I get so bothered and irritated that I want to scream at the top of my lungs, slap 2 people specifically, and leave. I don’t even know what to do anymore. I can’t even talk to my husband about it because he thinks that I should be able to just ignore them. But he doesn’t get it because nobody in my family has EVER treated him any less than with acceptance and love. Not to mention that girls can be so caddy. I’m in a bad mood just thinking about it. I don’t know how to cope 🙁
