Hello Hive! I’ve been reading the Bee for months and months and have often come to the waiting board to read posts from others who were waiting. Our engagement unfolded over time, but two nights ago (on the two year anniversary of our first date), my fiance surprised me with a formal proposal and a ring. We first started getting married a year ago and started looking at rings a few months later. He talked to my parents and got their blessing over 2 months ago so I was dying for my formal proposal and ring. We even had a wedding date and venue reserved! I was starting to think I may never get the formal proposal and an engagement ring, but I did and it feels so good to be able to officially say “I”m engaged!!” I share this because I’m excited, but also to offer encouragement to those of you who are stll waiting. Even if your engagement process looks different than the way you’d always imagined it, I do think it will unfold at the right time and when it all comes together, you will be so delighted!

Congratulations! I appreciate the encouragement 🙂 Thanks for saying it’s not always what we imagine…”drink not of the Hollywood Poison”, as they say.

@cafegirl: that’s so funny that you talked about waiting for a proposal not looking like what we imagined. i think that’s why waiting bothers me so much! because when thinking about the proposal and marriage, i NEVER imagined having to wait for him to do it. he wants to fulfill his fantasy about how he wants to do it_ but what about my fantasy sbout my man wanting to and just doing it quickly???
