SO and I have been together for 5 1/2 years! We looked at rings earlier this year. I have no clue when he’s going to propose and no clue if he has the ring or not. However, he has said that he is going to propose soon. He tells me he can’t wait to marry me. My brother asked his Fiance to marry him in March and I think that threw my SO’s plans off a bit. We in no way want to steal there glory. We’re heading to Florida the 1st of the year for a vacation with the family. He has said that maybe he’ll propose there, but I know him well enough that if that were true he would never tell me! Or maybe he knows I’ll think that and it will throw me off? See what I have to deal with?! hehehe..Oh and I’m a student and he and his family own a stone quarry. He earned his bachelors in construction managing. I’m 23 and he’s 25. We’ve been love struck since we met when I was 17 and he was 19. We’ve had many ups and downs and feel stronger together than ever before. Cannot wait until I’m not waiting anymore! Any waiting tips? Thanks ladies!!

Welcome! I think that your brother getting engaged months and months ago should have no effect on you guys anymore – that’s history! It’s really sweet that your SO says those things. You’ve already gotten past the first hurdle, if he talks about it so openly with you. And it sounds like he wants to surprise you and make it special. So good luck waiting and hopefully it happens soon!

Thanks Pinkmoon! I agree with you. My brothers proposal should no longer have an effect on us. I guess I’m just trying to figure out why he hasn’t done it. Summer is his busiest season. He works sun up to sun down. Now that it’s slower maybe he’ll have more time to plan it? Last night we were lounging around watching a movie and he said he just might propose at Lovers Key in Florida. I jokingly said well why don’t u just ask now? Right now? He said, well love…how would you ever believe me without my token of love and promise? Being the ring…I laughed and said he was just trying to throw me off. He’s a major jokester and I know he wouldn’t blatantly tell me his plans. Who knows! There have been times where I thought it was close and it didn’t happen.
I’ve seen on the boards how other bee’s talk about not focusing on the ring and just have fun in your relationship so that’s what I’m trying to do. I know he loves me and he never fails to prove it. Some of my friends wish they could trade me places. You’re right. I should be lucky that he is so open about the marriage topic. It’s just when? I mean 5 1/2 years?! We’ve lived together for 5 of those years. Mini rant..sorry! lol
