I too am also playing the waiting game. My boyfriend and I have been together for three and a half years and we just bought the ring so I know what it looks like. I told him he didn’t have to do anything big and fancy and he could just give me the ring. I kept asking when he was thinking of doing it but it just annoyed him. He told me he wanted it to be perfect and a surprise and to let him ask when he wanted to. And I thought about and I do want it to be a surprise and special because this is one of the most important moments of our life. So I’ve decided to be patient and wait because I know it’ll be a beautiful moment. That’s my advice to you as well. I know you’re very excited and I am too but just be patient and let him ask on his own and I promise it’ll be worth the wait. Congrats! 🙂

kellz1207:  Welcome to the Bee!

It sounds like you’ve had a lot going on. I think I understand from your last paragraph that your mum is getting better, and you have a new awesome job? Congratulations!

As for waiting, keep your patient hat on, I know it’s hard. He might feel that now that everything is looking up (work and home), you need to enjoy that for a while, before adding a new type of excitement. 

You will be engaged before you know it.

Also, join the waiting list, it really helps, and all of us waiting bees are really friendly and helpful :3

I played the waiting game for over a year. I know it is difficult, but don’t let this upset you that he is waiting. Enjoy every step your life brings. Stop, breathe, and meditate on the blessings of a healthy mother and a new job opportunity. Enjoy life as it is for now. Believe me, I know it’s hard. But you can do it. My FI lives 4 hours from me and we both have cronic illnesses that make us very dependant on each other and waiting to be able to be together is very hard (FI is clergy and is not allowed to live with partner until after marriage – and we both have amazing jobs in our respective cities we wouldn’t want to step down from.) Possitive thoughts, breathing, and meditating on patience.  It will be here sooner than you know it.
