…I just don’t think he’s going to pull off the proposal thing. Meh. He started talking about getting married in August. Then made a few promising comments before our trip at xmas…then….nothing. Not NYE, V-Day, and now my B’day. I’m starting to not care anymore.
Yes, this is a bitch session. I’m not happy about said birthday because it’s one of those extra depressing ones that end in 0. As much as I’d like to believe that I’m too enlightened to buy into society’s notions that a woman of my age is a failure for not being married with kids….I’m not.

Happy birthday! I know how hard it is to stay positive at times, especially when milestones come and go. Some men like to be tricky and just propose on random days so try not to get too down. I hope you get to enjoy part of your day at least. Sending big birthday hugs.

I’m sure you sick of this, but I’m going to say it anyway Happy Birthday!
Now a little “take it or leave it” advice 🙂 I’m also still waiting for my proposal. I cant begin to figure out when he’s going to propose, so I asked him when he wouldn’t propose. Secretly I’m just narrowing down some dates and giving my self a break by doing this.
SO told me NOT on a special occasion because he doesn’t want to “Share” that date with any other special occcasion. That ruled out a few dates where I knew I didn’t need to wonder if he was up to something.
I know it seems a little silly, but it helped me cut the anticipation a little.
Wish I could be of more help, good luck!

Thanks for the birthday wishes. As expected, he didn’t do it. Oh well. He did get me two pairs of kickass sandals. If he’s trying to surprise me then he’s doing good. I’ve got no idea when he’ll do it now.

@Sugaree: Happy birthday! Maybe you should talk to him, tell him you feel low about it

@Scottish_lassie: I’m 99% sure that this is a financial issue. I think talking to him about being disappointed will do more harm than good.

First off, Happy Birthday!!
Secondly, maybe he just didn’t want to take away from your birthday with a proposal. Your time will come. Hang in there. =)
