My FI clammed up when he was planning a proposal. I know waiting is hard, I waited for over 4 years, lived together for over 3, and so many big things came and went and NOTHING (including my YOUNGER brother meeting and marrying his wife). It felt like crap, but as long as you know marriage is a priority for him, if you’re in love and are happy I’d try to focus on that and i wouldnt be too stressed about it.

With that said- waiting is just plain frustrating! I’m sorry 🙁

@undercoverjoan:  I can feel the frustration too. I too am still. bloody. waiting!! I completed my degree this year thus leading to my first free summer in 3 years. We went on a number of awesome dates and spent some great time together, started our house hunt but I am still waiting!!

I actually love the jasmine blooming event actually 🙂 its awesome that you dont ask about it because I at least needed a timeline. Sometime in the next six months for me i guess but knowing helped me relax alot because I know that he’s planning something and I can think “this year” instead of “some day”

@undercoverjoan:  *le sigh* i feel your pain!! I am also still. bloody. waiting. I feel like I’m going crazy sometimes!! What makes it worse, like you mentioned, my SO also brings up marriage and how excited he is to get married, and still NOTHING! I know he’s saving for the ring but I won’t know when he’s purchased it, and we’ve talked about getting engaged before Jan 1, 2014 but there aren’t any particularly special dates that stick out to me from here til then, so who knows?!

To make matters even harder (I shouldn’t say this but… we’re all friends here right?!) one of his best friends just proposed to his gf last night, and she’s literally JUST 21. She’s probably ready to get married as much as me, and they’re ADORABLE together so I am super excited but… I’m 27 and still nothing, lol! Also one of my best friends just got engaged last week, and I’m super excited for both of them but I can’t help but feel a twinge jealous and ‘why not me?!?!?’

What makes me feel horrible is that I know he’s saving so it could DEF be worse bc he can only save so fast, and he’s determined to get me the ring he wants, so I just have to… wait. And be patient… and not mention it. Going crazy, and the engagements of everyone around me just makes it harder! I feel so lucky that he wants to spend his life with me but… I want that to start, like, yesterday! hahaha 🙂

 

Best of luck to you!!

@gymbunny04:  The waiting is irritating!

My SO has been working extra hard for the past few months. He is a fisherman so he could be working hard to cover expenses when the season is off. I can’t help but to think that he is saving for my ring though.

In regards to our house hunting, there have been times where he would say that we should get married so I can move out from my parents and then he would say “It’s best we continue saving for the rest of the year”. He would make me feel as if the proposal is around the corner and then extend it to next year. IT’S IRRITATING!

@tiff-tiff-tiff:  aaaaaah i hear you! he might be working hard for your ring, which is exciting… i hate when they stall/move the timeline though omg! so, he literally just texted, “save sept 22 in your calendar, another surprise :)” when i already have saved november 23 (i straight up asked him about that date and he said no that it’s just a fun day for us – he wouldn’t lie to me). and i said does it involve something sparkly?!?! and he goes “maybe ;)” ….

 

WHY!!!!!!

 

he’s enjoying this WAY too much, lol!!
