    I am a Cancer. I’m not sure if my sign has any effect on the way in which I am waiting.


    I have not yet felt the jealousy with regard to anothers engagement. Although I still have many single friends. Perhaps if by chance they all decide to get engaged in the next few months I may be jealous. 

    Nope, no walk date yet. I am pretty sure of his intentions so I doubt that I will have to set a date. 

    Haven’t had any engagement dreams yet. 

    We have been looking at a few different cuts. So far cushion is my favorite, with emerald coming in a close runner up. I no that I absolutely do not want a marquise cut.

    What is your sign? Do you think that influences how you are currently waiting? I am a pisces. Yes. Im too much of a romantic sap and I’m emotional at times…not good when it is a bad waiting day.

    How long have you been waiting? Since the day I met him πŸ˜‰ jk. Since the summer of 2012, it is becoming more realistic for us to settle down. Both earned decent jobs this year….good things are coming for 2013 πŸ™‚ We’ll be celebrating 4 years togther May 2nd and yeah…I think it’ll happen then. I’ll be shocked if it doesn’t.

    Do you sometimes get jealous of other’s people’s engagements? Yes sadly. But I rather have what we have than to not have it at all. ….That’s a hard one to remember sometimes.

    Do you have a walk date? No. No point. He wants to marry me as much as I do him. Money is holding us back, gotta save big!

    Have you had any engagement dreams? Yes hehe, always a dream where my ring is a.) ugly or b.) it breaks cause it’s plastic lol I don’t even know.. haha

    We haven’t gone ring shopping. However I made it super clear to him as to what I want. Round cut diamond on a simple silver band. So he knows πŸ™‚ I want a very simple classy ring. I don’t really like them all big with a bunch of stones. Not my style..

    What is your sign? Do you think that influences how you are currently waiting? 

    I’m a Gemini, and I don’t think so.

    How long have you been waiting?

    We have been together for 6 yrs. I have been waiting since yr 3.

    Do you sometimes get jealous of other’s people’s engagements?

    No, but I can’t believe that certain girls have beat me.

    Do you have a walk date?

    Yes, the end of June. (He doesn’t know about my walk date tho)

    Have you had any engagement dreams?

    Yes, I’ve had only 1. which I blame on me constantly looking and think about wedding stuff.

    If you’ve gone ring shopping, what’s your least favorite cut of diamond? (If you prefer another stone, then just pretend you are dealing with diamonds and had to choose!)

    I don’t have a least favorite cut of diamond. but I absolutely DO NOT want a Yellow Gold ring. I prefer White Gold or Platinum. My top cut choices are Emerald or Cushion.

    1. I’m a Taurus, nope, no bearing whatsoever.

    2. I’ve been waiting for 3 yrs. Been waiting since HE brought it up FIRST.

    3. Yes, sometimes, with people I know. I was very jealous of someone I know who met, got engaged and married their SO in 6 months and I was at yr 3 still sitting there waiting.

    4. Yes, there is a come to Jesus talk in store, but not sure if I’ll walk.

    5. No dreams.

    6. No favorite cut, just love the antique look of some rings.

    What is your sign? Do you think that influences how you are currently waiting? I’m an Aries. I think the temperament I have (somewhat typically fiery, impatient, and sympathetic) means that I don’t like waiting and sometimes get really grumpy and impatient, but that I respect my SO’s choices so I try not to talk about it too much.

    How long have you been waiting? Um. . . maybe a year and a few months? Some of that’s just very casual waiting– a year and a few months ago was when I really started thinking that I’d like to get engaged to my SO, but at first that was very sporadic. I’ve been waiting and thinking about it more frequently, and impatiently, for probably 8 months.

    Do you sometimes get jealous of other’s people’s engagements? Um, embarrassed to say so, but HELL YES. I’m kind of a jealous person ina few ways.

    Do you have a walk date? No. Once we have been together 5 years, that’s when I’m going to get really irritated if we aren’t engaged yet, and will start evaluating the situation. That is, however, 1 1/4 years away at this point.

    Have you had any engagement dreams? I think so– I don’t remember it very clearly, but I do remember it was kind of upsetting for some reason.

    If you’ve gone ring shopping, what’s your least favorite cut of diamond? (If you prefer another stone, then just pretend you are dealing with diamonds and had to choose!) We have not gone ring shopping. But from looking at diamonds on here, I think my least favorite cut is baguette, or whatever those weird, trapezoidal-cut stones are called that often form the side stones for emerald-cut diamonds. I don’t like diamonds cut to have 4 sides, like emerald-cut. I much prefer the various round cuts. (Don’t know enough about diamonds to answer this very well.)

    What is your sign? Do you think that influences how you are currently waiting?

    Gemini. Mostly I’m an angel but I have some really REALLY bad days too, but maybe that’s just more  of a general waiting bee thing!

    How long have you been waiting?

    Together 2 years, waiting for just over a year.

    Do you sometimes get jealous of other’s people’s engagements?

    Surprisingly no! I get really emotional though, in a good way!

    Do you have a walk date?

    I did, our 3rd anniversary next November, but I know the ring has been ordered so I guess that’s irrelevant now.

    Have you had any engagement dreams?

    Nope, but I don’t really have dreams.

    If you’ve gone ring shopping, what’s your least favorite cut of diamond? (If you prefer another stone, then just pretend you are dealing with diamonds and had to choose!)

    I don’t like traidtional engagement rings at all, I love to have things that are different so my beauty is a heart shaped ruby.

    I prefer rounder stones to square or rectangular in general.

    4. I do, January 31st is my now or never date.

    5. ive daydreamed about the moment he’d ask, it always makes me smile. i feel like a dork for saying that but oh well.

    What is your sign? Do you think that influences how you are currently waiting?

    I’m a scorpio, but I don’t believe in astrology/signs influencing my personality.

    How long have you been waiting?

    We have been together almost 6 years and I would say for the past year I have been ‘waiting’.

    Do you sometimes get jealous of other’s people’s engagements?

    Yes, it’s hard to see it happen quicker/easier for other couples sometimes. But, I know our reasons for waiting, and it will be better for us in the end!

    Do you have a walk date?

    No, definitely not.

    Have you had any engagement dreams?
    Yes, I had a dream that he proposed with a terrrrible ring (think superbowl ring) and that once i put it on i could never get it off – it grew onto my hand! we’ve ring shopped together and there’s really only one style i like – so that freaked me out.

    If you’ve gone ring shopping, what’s your least favorite cut of diamond? (If you prefer another stone, then just pretend you are dealing with diamonds and had to choose!)

    heart!!!! or marquise :/ it looks terrible on my finger, and i think it look too ‘old’ for my age.

    1.) Aries. It’s probably why I get hot headed. That’s about it.

    2.)Been together almost 5 years, waiting for 2 1/2 years!!!!! Erg!

    3.) No, not at all!

    4.) yes, but I think that might go away…. Hopefully..

    5.) you don’t even know!

    6.) princess, marquise. I prefer rounds. My dream would be an asscher, but if I got an asscher, I’d want a 1.75ct one at the smallest and I wouldn’t want to settle for less! I don’t feel like trying to force that kind of expensiveness on SO… Maybe when I’m rich someday!

    What is your sign? Do you think that influences how you are currently waiting? Yep, another Virgo here and everything you said – “I’m a complete control freak and I admit it. Waiting is driving me batty.”

    How long have you been waiting? Been together 6 yrs, 4 months but really felt like my timer got started maybe 2 months ago – got REALLY BAD this weekend when SO asked me for my ring size and what sort of ring I would like but is acting like he is just asking for future reference.

    Do you sometimes get jealous of other’s people’s engagements?
    Never got jealous until this month when FIVE friends got engaged and 1 married all in this same month!

    Do you have a walk date?
    No, no walk date because I know that he has no plans of wasting my time. We are in it to win it and only really could recently entertain marriage recently now that we’re done with school, I’m settled in my job and he is moving to my city early 2013 (as soon as he finds a house).

    Have you had any engagement dreams? No, just daydreams so far.  But if my mental gears keep grinding as hard and fast as they have been since he asked me my ring size, then I know that E-dreams are imminent.

    If you’ve gone ring shopping, what’s your least favorite cut of diamond? (If you prefer another stone, then just pretend you are dealing with diamonds and had to choose!) I began shopping this past Sunday when he asked me my ring size.  I prefer a peach sapphire as my main stone but I have never been a fan of the solitares and lonely princess cut diamonds on a plain band.  Seems kinda boring to me.

    1.Another Virgo here! Getting really impatient…I like to have my life planned out…for the most part

    2. We’ve been together officially 3 years in January, unofficially 4 years this April and I think I’ve been waiting about a year and half.

    3. I get tinges of jealousy now….Last Thanksgiving I got really mad when someone who was dating for 8 months got engaged and blew up at SO about it because they were one of these annoying, attachced at the hip type of couples.

    4. As of right now, I haven’t got a walk date & I’m hoping I never have to have one!

    5. Yes I’ve had one. He used our dog for it! I still think he might still do that

    6. I’ve told SO I like round cut, but I do also like radiant & I’m coming around to Asscher as long as the setting doesn’t hold it so it looks like a princess cut.
