Hi everyone. I’ve been browsing over these boards for months and I was very excited to see a waiting section.
I personally have been waiting on a ring for about a year now. The boyfriend and I both decided to wait until he was done with college and he had a better job before we tied the knot. Well, boyfriend got done with college and got a better job a year and a half ago. We’ve been together 4 years, got a house together last year and we even have a dog and a cat.
I’m not really sure why we’re waiting. He’s never said that it’s financial, never hinted that he might not be emotionally ready, since he was the one bringing up the idea of marriage after we’d only been together for about 8 months…
I have lots of married friends, and I can’t say that I’m getting jealous just yet, mostly impatient.
Anyway, I’m glad I have somewhere to come and vent if need be.

I’m glad you found us. 🙂 These boards have really helped to keep my waiting insanity to a minimum. There are plenty of us who can relate to the feelings that come along with the waiting process. Vent away!

Welcome! I’m sort of in the same boat you are. I moved in w/ my bf 9 months ago, we just adopted a kitten 2 weeks ago…. and I’m still waiting. In all we’ve been together about 2.5 years.
He jokes about getting married almost every day… not mean jokes but things like, “I’m gonna marry you so hard!” or when it’s bedtime he’ll be like, “Let’s go upstairs…. and get married.”
It’s pretty funny when he does it but now I’ve started to talk back, saying stuff like, “Ya right. I’ll believe it when I see it.”
I don’t really hide my WB obsession anymore either 🙂 One of these days I’m just going to blurt out, “What are you waiting for??!”

Hi! I am new to this site also and waiting as well. My boyfriend and I have been together for a little over 3 years and we live together and have a dog. I dont understand what he is waiting for. At first it was money but now I dont really know. I know it is coming eventually though because we talk about it all the time it just hasn’t happened yet.
