Okay this may be long. First of all, we’ve been waiting to get engaged because he was getting a new job. He got it Sep. 1st. This is everything that has happened since then:
– my two friends (who are married to his 2 best friends) told me they know when he is going to propose.
– my mom told me she knows a big secret, and to be patient.
– he keeps telling me I’ll be surprised “soon”.
– I found a phone call from the jewelry store where we picked the ring out in his phone. I looked up the number like a sneaky girl. 🙂
– he has begged me to start planning the colors and date and stuff out already. WE AREN’T ENGAGED.
– our moms and his sister in law are so excited that I caved in (even though I didn’t want to plan anything before being engaged) and I now have my colors picked out, fabric swatches to start looking for stuff, plates/stuff for my wedding shower, the flowergirls petals.
It will be atleast another month (we’ve been dating for 2 and a half years but I played hard to get and our OFFICIAL 2 year will be Oct. 12) and I’ve been waiting for like 10 months already. Most people would say “What’s another month, right?” but I’m so impatient and ready. It sucks when you already have some of your wedding planned and you can’t do anything else or tell ANYONE until you have a ring. It sucks completely. I bet he has a little something planned so I can’t talk to him, plus, what would I say? IDK what to do. I mean obviously wait, but it hurtssss. 🙁

oooh. you’re sooo close! that is exactly why i told my guy to not let me have a clue that it’s coming because otherwise i’d drive myself insane. i’m the worst with surprises when i know they’re coming.
i wouldn’t worry too much about any more planning. just enjoy this moment! or at least try too! cuz once that ring goes on, you won’t be allowed to talk about anything else BUT the wedding.

I know what you mean- you’re so close, so no big deal, right? But at the same time- Can it just happen already?! At least you have to family support and can talk to them. Just try to stay busy and don’t focus on the dates/time. So soon you’ll be posting your proposal story and ring.

Thanks ladies…I also found out today he HAS the ring, for sure. It hurts, I just wish it was here already!!!

I know it’s torture. But I am just so happy for you that it’s coming! The most important thing is he’s going to do it, you both know the other person is “the one”. And YAY he has the ring! Good guy 🙂

Keep it up!! My Fiance hid the ring IN OUR HOUSE, IN THE ENVELOPE, on the TOP SHELF OF OUR CLOSET. I knew it was there, I knew what it looked like! I just couldn’t bring myself to snoop 🙂
Sometimes I think that they do it just to torture us 🙂

Awww. lol thanks. I want it to happen NOW, I don’t want to wait!! But I don’t want to ruin whatever surprise he has either. I need to find something to get my mind off of it.

I’m sure he has something really lovely planned for you! It’s OK to be anxious and excited about it, that’s natural. It’s probably quite exhilerating to know you’re *this close* and something WONDERFUL is about to happen. Pre-Proposal anticipation: you only get to feel like this once in your life (hopefully)
When I needed to distract myself I started doing the C25K running program. I’m not a runner, it’s for beginners but if you’re a runner you can also use it to help you train for a better time on your 5k. That’s what one of my GFs is doing. Also, volunteering. I’m doing that too. Distract yourself like crazy here on WB 🙂

i feel your pain.. my bf relishes in the fact that i go crazy trying to guess when he’s going to propose! i’m such a control freak, and he loves that there is something that’s totally up to him to plan and i have absolutely no control over! and i hate it!
& oh man, if i got the green light to start planning, all hell would break loose! but congrats girl, you’re soooo close!

I had to wait too. I knew he had the ring, but was waiting for a “special” time to propose. I think I have to wait a month in half for the proposal.

Ahhhh!!! I know exactly how you feel, Saturday night my SO told me that he knows the date he is going to do it. He is working on the place. Then Sunday night he asked me if he should talk to my Dad about it.
This is so exciting and I am so happy, but I want it now. I am so impatient!!! Some people say “calm down, relax you know it’s coming” but it is so hard!
Good luck with the anxiety, I can’t wait to read your grad post!!!!

I know how you feel. My FH kept dropping hints thinking that it would make waiting easier. Long story short, it got to the point where I was ready to jack him up and say, “Give me my [email protected]*n ring”! lol

My Fiance and I talked about getting engaged and decided on marriage 6 months before we actually did. I started driving myself crazy everytime I thought that would be perfect to get engaged and it didn’t happen. I started making a list of reasons why I was happy that we weren’t officially engaged yet. 1. my conversations with people didn’t revolve around wedding planning. …ect.

All of your comments are really helpful!!!
I can’t wait either! One day less than a month now! I’m not going to be like straight up excited until a few days before, though, until then I’m going to be super impatient and the time is going to DRAG by!!! 🙁 any other time it would FLY!
