Thought this was interesting: http://apracticalwedding.com/2012/09/being-pre-engaged-when-you-are-the-one-not-ready-to-get-married/ though on WB it seems more like the guys are the ones who aren’t ready. Interesting to see it from the other side of things though, even if I’m not really sure I’m pre-engaged/waiting at all.

This was sort of me so I can relate. We didn’t get engaged for over 2.5 years even though I’m pretty sure my husband was ready after about a year. I just wasn’t really in a “marrying” place right then and it took me a while to get there. Although admittedly we were not as adult about it as the couple in the article seems to be. There were no big discussions just hints dropped heavily from both sides haha. Although he got me back because once I WAS ready he made me wait almost 3 months between finding out he was ring shopping and proposing and those are long hard months once you know a ring is involved 🙂

Good article! This applies to me as well- I wasn’t ready but my FI was. I ended up proposing to him, and he said it was more meaningful to him that way because he knew that I was really ready.

I feel like it is probably easier to be the one who is not ready, but I’m not sure how true that is. I guess there are difficulties on both sides.
