Wish me luck ladies. I am not going to peep a word about it to SO for at least a couple of months. We were talking last night and I asked him if he hasn’t asked yet because he’s not sure (I know, I know- i’m dumb) and he said that he’s absolutely sure and he isn’t answering anymore of my questions because whenever it happens, I won’t be surprised, and he really wants me to be.

His response sounds like a good one to me!! I used to ask the SAME thing…and he used to answer the SAME way…got my proposal in October!!! Be patient (I used to hate that advice!) because it sounds like it is coming soon :):) It always seems like their response (no matter how good) is never enough!

My Fiance used to get fed up of me mentioning the “e” or “m” words sometimes as he was working on it, and didn’t want me to keep reminding him of things when he knew exactly what he was doing.
It’s a good plan to restrain the hints a bit, as it will give him time to focus and unashamefully I mentioned getting married the night he proposed, just wished I had known so I didn’t look so pushy, haha!

I swore off talking about it forever about 8 million times. It’s hard, good luck.

Good luck!! I did the same thing also. We went ring shopping last August and haven’t said anything. Turns out her purchased the ring a couple weeks ago an is waiting for the perfect time (he told me, I didn’t ask or push for any details, I’m really looking forward to the surprise) hope you get your ring soon. When you need to talk engagements were always here 🙂

Good luck! It’s tough, but it really will make you feel better not to constantly be bringing it up to your SO (it’s not going to get rid of all your feelings, but really nothing will!)
After a successful December without any engagement or ring talk I’ve decided to make it a permanent thing too. I’ve found it’robot making any difference to constantly bring it up, so I might as well not waste my energy. Unfortunately I will eventually have to break the silence, because he’s going to wonder why he’s not invited to Thanksgiving next year, lol. I refuse to show up to a 5th round of family holidays with SO without atleast being engaged. My family is really starting to judge me at this point (sh&t, I judge me too now after all this time)

Good luck! Just remember, bringing it up a bunch won’t make him go faster (in fact it might make him push it back!)

I´m trying to do the same! it´s sooo hard but I want to be surprised. Happens that two weeks ago we went ring shopping too, and then He hasn’t “proposed” yet, I suppose he is waiting for the right time (but WHEEEN???), our wedding is in June, and I feel a little uncomfortable when people asks to see the ring….

@MisfitPrincess: Oh man I did the exact same thing to my SO on the fifth year of our Thanksgiving family get together! And every time my mom would get on my case about not being engaged, I would pretend like I don’t care and it’s not a big deal (it was a HUGE deal!), I would take my anger out on him by being super mean and getting angry at the smallest stuff… Passive aggressive much? My favorite strategy was after every wedding we went together, and there were MANY the last couple of years, I couldn’t help but start (mostly drunk) fights about how he is never going to propose and that we should just break up… Very mature I know. Now that I look back, I can’t believe he still proposed! LOL.
@Ohhavok: Good luck!

Oh god I’ve given my Boyfriend or Best Friend a YEAR AND A HALF of no engagement or marriage talk! He gave me a timeline the other night that he would propose by our 5th anniversary. Our 4th is this June. MoissyCo helped me custom design my dream wedding set and sent me the order link which I forwarded to my Boyfriend or Best Friend today. It’s a special custom design page and LITERALLY all he has to do is press “add to cart”.
I toooootally feel your pain. Our anniversary is June 16. Up to a year and a half and I can’t say a WORD!?!? What was I THINKING to promise him that??? Will. Be. So. HARD!!!
