- Wedding: September 2013
I am new to Wedding Bees. I have enjoyed reading your posts and I hope this board in particular is going to be a great help in waiting until he decides to ask me to marry him.
I am just FED UP of waiting. I have known my man for just over 10 years, been together for just under 3.
We have had the “talk” and we both know that we would like to get married to eachother someday, we have also looked at rings over Christmas, but that’s it.
All the talk has been started by me and it’s starting to feel like he’s just not interested. Usually, I have planned romantic events such as anniversaries and Valentine’s (he would forget if not) but now I thought that I was waiting, I would hand over the planning to him. (In the hopes that this would be the perfect chance for him to ask me.) But so far, nothing!
The reason for this vent is that my 15th friend has just become engaged. Yes 15TH! All around me, everyone is getting engaged and married. (I have four weddings to attend this summer, more coming up over the next year.)
I love my man so much and I would love to say that I could wait as long as it takes for him to propose, but I know that I would end up doing it myself!
Whenever we talk about marriage/ engagement he says that he’s ready and that it’s a question of the right time. As far as I am concerned, there have been about a dozen of right times. He knows that I don’t want to be flown to Paris or some other romantic city to be proposed to. All I want is something special and straight from the heart.
That’s why I am taking part in the Valentine’s Day challenge… in the hopes that me shutting up about engagements will help move things along a little. He has booked a table at my favourite resturant, but that probably means nothing as always!
Does anyone else feel this way? Or am I just crazy?
Good Luck to everyone else taking part in the challenge.
