Just a little backstory me and my SO have been together for 4.5 years… my SO brought up engagement talk about a year and a half ago, all by himself! I was thrilled. He took me to look at rings a year ago in August. Needless to say I thought we’d be engaged by NOW (I’ve had friends go look for rings and they were engaged within the month). So I am patiently (not really) waiting for a proposal. He wants everything to be PERFECT. I couldn’t care less if he threw the ring at me (okay, maybe I could) but it’s been taking so long.
It started affecting our relationship a couple months ago around the end of May when it seemed like EVERYONE was getting engaged. I broke down. I couldn’t help it. I figured we’d be engaged by then.
We talked and he says soon, although he’s been saying “soon” for over a year. I guess it just kind of made me feel like I was a fool. Anyone else feel that way sometimes?
Anyways flashing foward a couple months to now and he’s been giving me little hints and I really know it’s coming, saying he’s solidified his plans… etc. I’m really hoping by the end of this year, some of my family will be coming out around November so I’m hoping by then. But it’s hard not to get down on myself still… I just don’t want to be disapointed.
I also wanted to say that I’m so glad to have found this forum. Everyone is so supportive of everyone else. I can’t believe how many others are in the same position I am, and hearing of engagements makes me have hope!
