2ndTimeForWe:  I feel like this needs to be a conversation you have with him in person. There is so much that can be lost in context and tone over a text and email.

Are you okay with an engagement of that length?

He might not have any idea how long it takes to plan a wedding, or how long of an engagement you had in mind. Did you want a late fall wedding?

I expect he is actually on it, but I don’t blame you at all for being impatient. Especially when his timeline seems unrealistic. But he did buy a stone- that’s a commitment to the process. I don’t blame you for asking because his timeline seemed “off”.

Most couples discuss getting married somewhat before the engagement happens. Don’t be embarassed just because it isn’t what you see in Hollywood. If a guy is going to buy a ring, he wants to know that she’s going to say yes, right?

2ndTimeForWe:  If you are confident that he is going to propose, then I think you need to just relax and enjoy the relationship. You will never get this time back.

I think it’s ok to have the conversation you had – and you shouldn’t feel like you ruined anything.  I can relate in that I probably have a similar personality to you… I’m a planner, and I am type A – I wan’t to be surprised, but I also want to know we’re on the same page 🙂 Only a couple more months – try to distract yourself, it will fly by!!
