I’ve had enough of waiting tonight bees, my patience is thin and i’m sick and tired.
The ring is at Fedex hold till SO picks it up (he’s away on work for another 2 weeks).
Its been 6.5 years in total and 2 years of “serious talking of where things are going” to now having the ring in sight……I should be excited (I am but not right now).
For some reason I have had enough of waiting. My patience is gone. SO is confusing me with saying this xmas or next, or a long time orrrr why do we even need to get married how will it change too all these other excuses.
He decided on when we could go ring shopping and I know he’s excited but what gives. WHY do they have to be so confusing and play games 🙁 I feel like a total Brat right now….
ERGGHH, sorry, I need to vent!!
How do you deal in moments like this? Chocolate isn’t helping 🙂

@Shonzilla: That’s crazy… I’d tell him to stop playing games. Have you all discussed a timeline at all? I know you’ve been seriously talking for the past 2 yrs. But do you have “we’ll be engaged by may of 2014” or whatnot?
How old are you btw? just curious.
I’m 22 (today!), FI and I had been together for 5 yrs when he proposed bc we started dating when we were 16.

@Shonzilla: If only our fella’s understood what they put us through!! If the ring is at fedex, I’d bet money that he is already planning on how to give it to you. It won’t be a year away, I can assure you that! They always want to make sure we are surprised and find it funny to get us worked up (for the most part!!)….
Be patient!! I had reached my wits end and had to convince myself to just give up thinking about it….I had several nights where I was a real brat to him the week before he proposed! It happened when I least expected it, because I stopped hoping for it. It was super awesome and your turn is closer then you think Now, stop looking at wedding boards and go watch a stupid movie that is not wedding related!! Home Alone is always a good one!

I think maybe because your SO is away at the moment you’re feeling even more vulnerable but I’m sure it will happen soon. 🙂 especially if it has already been ordered! Not long now. Try and take your mind off it if you can.

@cupcakebride2013: I just enrolled to do a degree which is four years long. We have talked and talked about marriage and kids over the years and of late have agreed no children till I graduate but I did tell him I would like to be married before then.
Im almost 25. We met at 18 & 20. Ill be 29/30 when I graduate. I’ve always said about 25/26 with kids about 28 and he knows that. I don’t know if he’s scared or if he wants to throw me off as a surprise (because we did the ring thing together)…. it’s just annoying, he loves keeping me on my toes and loves seeing me get mad…. I HATE surprises. A straight answer would be nice! (I have told him that and the games thing too) :/
Who knows he might just do it on our little holiday coming up… heres hoping, its really hard to wait now that I know the ring is here!
PS. Thanks for your reply 🙂
@happyheidi1984: Yep, he does, he loves seeing me get all worked up! Lucky he works away otherwise I probably would have walked away and cleaned the house for being annoying.. haha. I think im just really tired from uni. Hes so supportive and lovley and just a big darn kid sometimes. I was doing well, I gave up and then because the ring is here I got all excited again. Ahhhg! and the ” I have uni and want to focus on that” doesnt work – he saw through that BS.
HAHAHA thanks, I just watched that ‘the interns’ one, it was good but I think I need a drink now!
Thanks girls 🙂

@Dogsbody92: Yep. He does 4 weeks away and 1 week home and usually about two weeks in I get all emotional. Which is about now. We are going on a little holiday when he comes back (3 days) he keeps saying it will be nice to go have some time together because its always so rushed. Such a sweety. A cheeky sweety that is being annoying. Would be okay if he was home and i could be mad at him and then he could hug me and I could still be mad. lol.

This Christmas or next or NEVER?!
Dude is SERIOUSLY messing with your head, and that is NOT okay.
I think you guys need to have a frank discussion. Does he really want to get married? Is that in his plan? Or is that something you want, that he’s pretending to go along with?

Wait….you see him once every 5 weeks?

@BrandNewBride: I said it wasnt cool but then when he is all serious he says he does want to marry me and wants to have children etc… he just “likes to keep me guessing” and “loves to watch me squirm” SO MEAN. If I dont say boo then he usually stops it for a while. I think he’s just scared for some reason. It’s not far off I know that, he was soo excited when he spoke to my mum for permission that he had to tell me then was annoyed at himself because he wanted to surprise me… I just get sick of the silly comments.
@MrsWe: for the last year and a bit he has been 4 off and 1 on, yep so I get 6 days with him, we talk every night but its hard. he is stopping remote work at the end of the year to come home for good. He is cutting these weeks back to 3 because he is over it and wants to be home too.

@Shonzilla: Oh! I thought you meant he was changing his mind DURING serious conversation!
My DH referred to engagement is “that thing that might happen some day in the distant future” TWO HOURS before he proposed. Men!

@BrandNewBride: Wow!!!! That’s amazing…you just never now how long you will be waiting…maybe not long at all haha!
@Shonzilla: Hang in there. It sounds like it’s close…he probably wants it to be a surprise so he’s trying to throw you off!!

@BrandNewBride: wow that’s awesome!!! he just doesn’t see the point of being married which is frustratiNg and a constant comment but the deadline keeps changing. He says he’s changed his mind but then I think he’s just tryna throw me off. He did that a present once. I thought I was gettinf a tv and he got me this necklace I wanted from a whole year back. I laughed and was shocked and now I joke saying he ows me a tv 😉
@veryberry13: yep I think your right. Its just making me die!!! Haha. Sucks I have to wait for him to get there. I was ready ages ago. I really should focus on study and just take it as it comes, I think it will be better when he’s home for good.
