Well, first off HELLO fellow WaitingBees!
Quick synopsis: He and I have been together for over two years and we are both divorced, so this isn’t our first go around. I am SO impatient on waiting for a proposal. He never plans anything but until recently something is up…. please let me know your thoughts on the matter.
I asked him to plan a date night a few weeks ago and for the first time he seemed happy about the concept. He then called me a few days later and wanted me to go online to pick out a clutch with him (he has never bought me a purse/let alone a clutch) which was really awkward. Why was he wanting to spend a ridiculous amount of money (money isnt an issue for him but he has never spent that much on me) on a clutch? He said it was for date night. Well its been about two weeks and I asked him “When was date night going to be?” since I may have to set up babysitting or make sure I dont make other plans. He said he was waiting on a few things before we could have date night…….
So now my mind is playing tricks on me. Is this going to be a proposal date night. He NEVER plans anything and the last date he planned was quite some time ago and when I asked him why he picked the restaurant he said and I quote, “Yahoo said it was the most romantic restaurant in the city.” LOL
OK, so please tell me I am not going crazy.

I don’t think that you are going crazy something is up, but I waited 4 years for a proposal, so try not to get your hopes up too high. Maybe he really is only planning on getting you the clutch and a lovely date. I’m not trying to burst your bubble, but I was always so devestated when I thought he was going to propose and didn’t.

Try not to read too much into things so you won’t be set up for disappointment. It does sound like something may be up, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a ring.
I honestly think two years may be a little soon, especially since you’ve both been wrong in the past. Forever is a lot longer than several years, and rushing into the proposal and marriage doesn’t make for a good start.

While some people may think two years is not long enough. I think it all depends on your own relationship. The fact that we are both divorced makes it actually easier the second time around because we both now know what we really want in a relationship and what is important to us. I see it too many times that women wait years for the ring that is never coming. I want our children to see how a successful relationship/marriage is supposed to be. When you are blending two families and children are involved, it puts a curve ball on the situation.
