This is my first ever post and I apologise in a advance if this turns into a novel lol 🙂
iv been with my SO for 18 months and I know he’s the person I want to spend my life with, iv had a hard time in relationships before so it took me a while to trust but now I’m sure he loves me and wants so spend his life me also 🙂
so iv been noticing a few signs and want to know for sure if Im officially ‘waiting’ 🙂
1: he has told me he wants to marry me
2: he calls me mrshislastname sometimes
3: we both have discussed our future and we seem to be in the same page
4: it’s coming up to xmas and he’s been mentioning ‘our wedding’ and ‘when we get marrielots lot, he told me a few nights ago that he would love to ask me to marry him and when I asked what was stopping him he said he wanted it to be really special
5: he’s been really vague about my Xmas present saying he wants it’s to be a special Xmas for me ..he’s very good at keeping secrets I should add so there’s no point asking for clues 🙂
6: I never bring up anything about weddings, engagement, marriage..I make a point of it..any time we have spoken about it it’s been due to him bringing it up
so does any of this sound like a proposal is imminent?? I’m dying to know if I’m officially a waiting bee 🙂 xx

I think you become a waiting bee when you feel like you are. Congratulations! And yes it does sound like it might be a speacial Christmas. But the cynic that I am, having been a waiting bee for over a year after SO asked my Dad for my hand in JULY 2011(!) says try not to get your hopes up, enjoy it for whatever it is!

@ForeverbluexX: Seems like you could be BUT none of this screams imminent proposal to me. Be careful not to get your hopes up because thats how we wee bees become resentful!

hi thank you for your replies 🙂
i don’t think it’s imminent either tbh but was kinda hoping lol I’m not gonna get my hopes up because I don’t want to be disappointed by whatever happens at xmas , by all accounts he’s putting a lot of effort in to it ..plus iv been hearing all this stuff since June and nothing’s happened yet 🙂
I just wondered since he’s definitely been mentioning it a lot more in the past month 🙂 I’m patient..for now lol x

Awww this is so nice, it sounds like you are waiting, but yes don’t get too excited, I say hope for a nice present that isn’t a ring and you’ll be happy either way 🙂 Sounds like you guys are happy regardless though, definitely enjoy that. Don’t forget a ring brings wedding planning and that may be stressful for you, so enjoy your time together just relaxing 🙂

My FI was saying that kind of stuff about a year into our relationship, but it was in a cutesy romantic way that made me blush. Only about 2.5 years into our relationship did we sit down and actually talk about getting married and what a married life together would look like (our life goals and expectations, kids, money, religion, boundaries, etc. The big topics). So I think it’s cute that he’s doing all that, but until you guys talk concretely about what it means to be married and how your lives can fit together, it’s just dreamy love stuff.

Hi 🙂 we have definitely spoken about the future together..we know we would like children and he’s also spoken about buying a house together..at th moment we don’t live together but that’s the most immediate goal we both have x
