I’m a new poster to the weddingbee boards, but I have lurked for a little while, and just want to say what a wonderfully supportive bunch you all are!
My SO and I have been together for close to two years (anniversary at the end of April), and after some pushing in October 2011 (ie. An ultimatum I am now thoroughly ashamed of), I had found out that a proposal will be happening in March and that it will be “big”.
But March feels like eons away! And I’m such a contradictory bundle of emotions regarding it. I’m excited, happy, anxious, a very tiny bit cynical (what if he doesn’t do it? He was meant to do it by last October but didn’t) and incredibly fearful that he may feel resentful or like he doesn’t want to do it. This is driving me insane! Has anyone else had these sort of mixed feelings?
But on a positive note – I’m glad I found this board, and I hope my Hive-Sisters-in-Waiting get their dream proposal ASAP!

Haha Welcome to the hive! All of those emotions are ones we have all dealt with at one time or another (or all at the same time!) You will definitely love this board! Many of us having been with our SOs for years and years and years… and we’re at the end of our wits! But we’re waiting, er, trying to!

Hello and welcome! I am thinking mine with happen in March as well, but I don’t really have any proof. Just a feeling that it will be soon and it might happen over spring break (which is in March) when we will have a week off from teaching. I hope you aren’t kept waiting too long!

I’m new and waiting too! Me and my bf have been together two years but no signs yet! Every little weekend away or holiday I get my hopes up but no idea when it’ll happen (although he has said he wants to marry me and spend our lives together). Good luck!

Haha, you are PREACHING to the CHOIR sister!! 🙂 We are all here for support through the frustration, the glimmers of hope and the proposal itself! I have seen a lot of bees that know the month it’s happening…Geez I want to be surprised but I wish I knew the month it was happening! It’s driving me absolutely nuts. Welcome! 🙂

Welcome! Ditto what everyone else has said…I’m six years and waiting! 😀

Welcome! I know March seems far away, but it’s nearly the end of January, so it’s only a little over a month! Try to find a little project to occupy some of your free time over the next month or so and maybe it’ll go by faster. Keep us posted!
