Hear, hear!  I, too, was given an answer of before the new year arrives, so let’s keep our fingers crossed that we can wait gracefully and patiently for another 3 months!

I told myself “okay now you have to be nice at all times, and you have to show him that you can get along with his single female friends.” 

Yeah… so needless to say, I always have a fresh glass of Merlot in my hand when his female friends are around.  lol.  Okay I’m joking. 

Good luck ladies…..

Good for you!!!!

I’ve come to this realization myself, or maybe it’s just my phase right now in the waiting cycle, but I’m NOT going to let this waiting stress me out anymore or make me unhappy!!! I am just going to trust that everything happens for a reason, and things will fall into place when they’re supposed to. I’ve been good about not bothering him at all about the proposal, even though I know he has the ring, but it has been bothering me a lot inside, but it’s time to stop. I’m with you!!

Yayy yayyy go team!!! ok I might have had way too much coffee.

At this very moment I am with you! (I don’t know how I am going to feel tomorrow but right now I am excited!!!) My SO also told me that it will happen before the end of the year, he actually told me that he has chosen a date.

I have to keep telling myself that I will be his fiance soon.

@MissBuffalo:So So true we all kinda go a little crazy when we hit that point of being ready.. its so weird because we should be doing the opposite. I love your attitude and I am with you! Let’s get back to how we used to be! FUN and HAPPY!! No thoughts of marriage bringing us down

Ohmigosh! We are in the exact same position! We’ve already found the ring–heck, I think he might already have the darn thing in his posession, but he likes messing with me. I’m a total control freak, and he says that this is the one thing he’s totally in control of. I’ve been taking up an excessive amount of hobbies lately…it makes the days go SO much quicker! Before we know it, we’ll be engaged and OFFICIALLY planning our awesome days!!!

My SO has also given me an end-of-the-year timeline. I don’t think he has the ring yet and hasn’t started planning the proposal either. I could be wrong, but this is the impression I get now. The last time we talked about engagement (a few days ago), I told him that I was worried that he doesn’t have a plan and will, therefore, miss our timeline. He told me not to worry, because he will take care of it all. Sometimes it’s soooo hard to just leave it all in his hands.

I’m with you though! No more engagement talk until he actually does it. Eeeek! 🙂
