SOOOOO like everyone…I too am playiing the waiting game. Dating for three years, 2 year old boy we adore, family loves me and already calls me the daughter in law and like everyone we have planned and talked about our lives constantly. I know he obviously loves me and sees me as the one because he puts every effort of his life and time into I and our son….YET no ring 🙁 .
Worst part is I know he has bought it and talked to my father. ( My younger brother slipped lol). I’m just so anxious to wait. He is in the navy and is finishing up school so he came home last weekend and would NOT let go of his backpack lol, even brought it to the bathroom with him hahaha. SO I KNEW SOMETHING WAS UP….I WAS SOO EXCITED. yet……….I was disappointed. Looks like I have more disappointments to look forward to eh? that was only the first time I expected and he did not….and some of you have waited for months!!
Don’t get me wrong…i would wait forever if I had to…I LOVE THIS MAN. but ahhhhh….I can’t wait to not be the baby mama or gf when I do so much more and deserve a better title!
So….the next weekend will be rough 🙁 I’m trying to just get my mind off things that have to do with my e-ring. I know thats what he wants. he wants me to forget because I know too much already lol. I talked about all weekend so he is waiting for the perfect time! I’m just going to play it cool this week and not mention it at all and i’ll let you know how it goes lol!!!!!!!! can’t wait to take those pics of it!

Super exciting, and sounds like it’s really going to happen. Maybe he’s waiting so that it will truly be a surprise, when you’re truly not expecting it!

Its gonna happen! and as much as you want to distract yourself its going to be hard. my advice take up knitting…lol no no no really it’s going to be tough because its such a big thing but try not to look too much into it perhaps because you know its coming so just kind of brush it off and it will be even more exciting the day of!

thanks ladies!!!! are you all waiting too?? i’m really trying to just play it cool. I will be greatful for the wait if it is a surprise, I know that for sure. I know he loves the anticipation because this is one of the few things of the engagment and wedding things that he and only him will plan. and you BET its driving me nuts….I wanna start looking into our wedding plans but boy it feels weird to do that without that BLING lol.
I will be sure to let you know how this weekend plays out…..not getting my hopes up though like last weekend thats for sure!!!

I SO know how you feel. In fact, I’m embarrassed to say I had a ton of anxiety waiting for my ring. (We’ve been together 7 years, was waiting after picking it out for 5 months). My only advice to you is this: You have ONE time to be proposed to (hopefully). Freaking out about will make it less special, so be patient. Your man is going to do something amazing that rocks your socks. Mine did 🙂 I had plenty of little breakdowns and disappointments so I know how it feels. I wish you the best and use wedding bee to get out some of the angst, it’s a great community! It will happen before you know it. GOOD LUCK!

Hang in there…I know from experience that the wait can be tough, but stressing about it is only going to make the two of you feel worse. I know this from my own experience I know getting engaged is a very exciting time. I am happy to finally have my wait over, but this means the new wait of wating to get married. I never thought to save money while I was waiting for the ring and now we need to think about planning a wedding without a lot saved. I am happily engaged and will be so for 2 years until we can afford the wedding we want. I have no worries though I love calling him my fiance for now 🙂

Thanks guys! It’s what I really need to hear. I am empty handed again this weekend and I feel terrible because I feel so let down and he knows it but it really is NOT his fault at all! I know he just wants to wait for the perfect time and go by his plans not mine. He knows I know he has the ring and he wants me to forget about it for a little bit so it can still be a surprise.
It’s SOOO HARD though lol! After this weekend I dont’ see him for 3 weeks because he is in the navy and is training 4 hours away. Also I start my school in 3 weeks so I’ll be a busy bee once that gets rolling too. So…..I was trying SOO hard NOT to get my hopes up about this weekend but I was pretty sure it was the one because I wont’ see him for a little bit. I tried to not talk about it all week and not even say a word so he would think I had forgot. YET apparently he told me he didn’t even bring it and that I need to forget about it for a few weeks so it will be a surprise!
It’s difficult because now that I know about the ring its harder to just forget about it like that. I get all giddy and anxious every weekend now because its the only times we see each other. I just end of feeling like a total idiot when sunday rolls around and he has to leave to go back and he didn’t pop the question.
I know that at the end of all this I will still a wonderful finace one day and a awesome proposal story to tell because I was patient but that is the only thing that keeps me going as of now. I am really sad I won’t see him for a little bit and I wish I had that ring lol! But it makes me feel horrible because I am acting selfish. I am still happy that I got to spend time with him and I look forward to the next time I see him. Until then i’ll still dream of my ring lol.
