Have you talked about a timeline with him?  He may be thinking the right time will be in years, while you’re ready now.  I would definitely sit down and have that kind of conversation with him.

And don’t worry, you’re in good company!  I’m not engaged yet, but I’m going wedding crazy too!

We are all wedding crazy. No advice there. I look at wedding ideas, dresses, DIY’s all the time. I like it. I like daydreaming also.

But I never wanted to get married until I met my SO, so sometimes my current actions/thoughts about getting married/having a wedding even overwhelm me. I take it one day at a time, focus on other things like school, my son, good books, and laying in the sun, haha.

Yea I have no advice because I do all the same things..Spend my free time looking at wedding dresses( I found one yesterday that IM DYING TO TRY ON!!!) and DIY. You should just try to focus more on other things!

I’m kinda in the same boat, except we both know it’s going to happen.  He did propose in more than one occassion but every single time is without a ring.  So right now we’re just unofficially engaged, which is killing me.  We talk about it but it always end the same way… once the ring is on my finger, we can put those plans into motion. 

At least going to the gym and grad school will keep my mind off of wedding stuff for now.

@LauraRR:  

Don’t worry about the dress thing.  I think I found my potential dress.  My big fear is if that dress gets discontinued by the time it happens.  *sigh*

Have a talk with him about timelines. I wouldn’t expect him to propose until you’re back in the same state. Figure out what’s holding him back. Do you want an expensive ring? Does he think you need an expensive ring? Is he where he wants to be in his career, etc.?

I guess the main thing is to not nag him. Especially when you’re apart, you want to enjoy your time together. The last thing your relationship needs is him worrying about being pressured… especially when you’re thousands of miles apart.
