All I can say is welcome to the queue!  Waiting is SO hard. This is my seventh year.  Men are hopeless!  You will get some wonderful advice on here though.  It’s amazing.

Welcome—- since you haven’t spoken baout it for a year- why don’t you ask him if his timeline is still on track. A year is a long time to go without speaking about such an important decision- the least you could do is find out where his head is at so there are no surprises.

Welcome!  I feel very similar to you (I have been with boyfriend for 4 years and am turning 29 in July- we have also been living together for 3 years).  It’s so hard to be waiting and not talk about it!  My “timeline” is “sometime in 2011” and I am struggling with it and it is almost halfway through my year already.  A year is a really long time to not know what is happening – I’ve been hearing for a year already about a propsal “soon” and it is not easy.  Maybe since  you haven’t brought it up in a while you could try talking about it again?

“soon” is really the killer word.  I can’t stand that word! What does it MEAN?!?! Yeah sorry had to vent, there.

@OmigoshesGrrrl: agreed.  “Soon” is a terrible word when it comes to guys talking about proposing especially!

“Someday” That is just as bad. I feel your pain! I have been wit my BF for 4 years and we have lived together for 3. I’m still waiting. 

I agree with BreeninBoston. If you haven’t talked about it in a year, go for it! Do it calmly, like I have been advised by my friendly Bees Wink
