No you are not waiting to get engaged if you have set a date – you are engaged
no you don’t need a ring to be engaged, but if you have a venue and a date you are
No you don’t need to go crazy because by the end of October your boyfriend, who only promised 2012, has proposed
No there isn’t more than one type of waiting – just waiting
No it isnt normal to pressure your poor men into proposing when you are still in your early 20s because you want a mahoosive wedding
No you can’t have a proposal at an engagement shoot – aren’t you already engaged if you are taking professional pictures to celebrate said engagement!
I don’t mean to offend, just my humble opinion – I waited 8 years for a proposal. We had talked about getting married and I knew it was on the cards – but no planning until the fateful words ‘ will you marry me’ were out of his mouth, in his own time.

No, it isn’t normal to try on wedding dresses before you are engaged. In fact it’s very wierd.

No, there are no recipes or foods which will magically make your man propose because he then sees you as good wife material. Please get rid of that idea and fire it back to the 1950s where it belongs.

No inviting people to your wedding and being upset when they say they aren’t sure when you don’t have a proposal, a set wedding date, or any kind of plans in place, really.

No if you haven’t brought up marriage in a serious conversation it is extremely unlikely that the reason he’s been acting differently is because he’s going to propose.

@Brideonabudgetlauren: Or change your fb name to his last name before you’re engaged! So middle school!

@Twizbe: Way to say EVERYTHING I’m thinking every time I’m on here lately. I love this post.
No, you are not entitled to get engaged before your friends/relatives just because you and your SO have been together longer.

No, it is not wise to pressure a man into getting engaged or marrying you. The right man for you will not require pressure, coercion or ultimatums. The right man for you will move mountains to make you happy and you’ll never, ever question if he really loves you or if he wants to marry you. The right man will make all those things abundantly clear.
Do not settle for less than that.
And never give your entire soul and power away to another human being so that if they walk away you crumble. Give your heart and be loving but keep your soul intact. Be strong enough, always, that if it becomes necessary – YOU are the one who can walk away.

No, if you are not engaged you are not pre-engaged and he/she is not your pre-Fiance(e) there is no such thing.

no, you can’t say that you would be happy with a ring pop on your finger and then be upset when your Fiance doesnt put enough effort into the proposal that you pressured him into.
