sheep105: I think you should have a talk about it with your SO to find out if your on the same page as each other when it comes to marriage.

At one point, I just had to press my boyfriend for a timeline.  I said something like, “Hey, I know you said it’s coming, but it’s really hard to wait around for something so life-changing while not having any idea when or if it’s coming at all.  I really need a timeline, or a range of what you’re thinking in order for me to feel confident about where we’re headed.”

If he has no idea on timeline, it might be best to have a “what’s holding you back from being ready?” conversation.

Maybe he doesn’t want to do it on an already designated special day? When I was waiting I was sure it was coming on our 5th anniversary,  then Christmas, then Valentines Day. He finally proposed on a random day in March because he wanted to catch me off guard even though he’d had the ring for 2 months prior.

sheep105:  I understand exactly where you are coming from. My FI & I have been together for 6.5 years and I’m still waiting. I’ve been given a 2 months window so I know it’s coming soon. Plus he’s given me money to buy my dress (I bought her Thursday). But this weekend 5 friends got married and in the last 3 weeks 2 other friends have gotten engaged. I’m just ready for my time. I usually would have some good advice for you, but today I’m down in the dumps myself. Maybe tomorrow I’ll be back to normal.

sheep105:  Glad to see things are looking up for you. We have recently come back from vacation. I was thinking he would propose then, but it still hasn’t happen. I’m starting to wonder if my 2 months window was just a ruse to get me to be quite about wedding stuff.
