Wow! Congrats to you!!!

This: He started becoming really extra super duper mushy with me.  I love you this and I love you that.  Helping around the house much more.  Surprising me with dinner

For years, my guy’s been saying a proposal was on its way soon but never came thru. He’s gotten his career in order recently and become mushy, more helpful around the house (and he already did quite a bit!), and also seems to be deep in thought/holding back something he wants to say.

Thank you SO MUCH for this, as the last days of his deadline approach, I feel much better that this time won’t end like the rest!

Thanks for sharing your story. I love it. Congratulations! Keeping it quiet for a month. Wow, I commend you for that. I tell anyone that can keep it shut for more than a week that they are doing awesome!

I love this – “I offered to buy a new bed thinking that was the problem…” Hahaha!


And omg you give me hope! He brought it up (our wedding this and that), and nothing happened, then I got into the totally crazy + breakdown phase, I recently calmed down, and a few weeks ago he started getting extra mushy! I’m not sure what will happen with the two of us, but you give me hope that I can keep the shut it up pact this week. Thank you!!!! And congratulations!!!

This is great! Definitely motivating me to keep schtum and just enjoy my relationship while I’m waiting. It’s not long for me (December is my timeline) so I should enjoy these last few months of courtship! Love your outlook. Congrats!!

Aww you’re sweet. Laughing Congratulations on getting engaged!!!!

Mine has been similar. He was talking about it A LOT last year on his own. Then when I started mentioning anything he completely stopped all talk about it and didn’t propose. I kinda thought it would be good for us to have an open engagement and be on the same page, but he obviously wants to do it all on his own.

So I don’t talk about it anymore.

And he has been the same way in bed too, about a month ago he started taking “making me happy first”…very serious, not like before. Still no signs of a proposal though. He says we don’t have enough money to be able to make it happen. I can definitely tell he wants to though.

Thank you! This is great motivation for me to keep quiet about it! Come to think of it, if I were the guy and my woman were mentioning it a lot, I wouldn’t propose in case she thought I didn’t mean it and had been nagged into it.

@laceylace:  Firstly congratulations!!!!!

Secondly….I’ve noticed my SO getting more mushy/lovey dovey and telling me he loves me. He’ll say I love you so much……Does this mean I’m getting close!?
