    Can you explain the timeline and refusal to accept his proposal in March?

    There is no option for “I don’t know, I’m not a mind reader.”  He will do it if/when he wants to.  No sooner.

    You NEED to relax! It sounds like you’re suckig all of the fun out of the proposal. If I were him, I would be so annoyed that you bring it up all the time. You’re practically begging for it at this point, which is just not attractive at all. He gets the point by now.

    I agree with jehembeeMy FI proposed later than I wanted him to (and later than he told me he was going to) because of circumstances outside of his control. He was trying to wait for my family’s approval, but that never happened, so he finally ended up proposing without it.

    If your man has the ring and is talking about it, he WILL do it. I know firsthand how frustrating and difficult it is to wait, but the fact is it’s one more month out of the rest of your lvies together.

    If he proposes in March (let’s hope he doesn’t) just say no, and tell him to try again next month.

    Honestly you pressuring him to do it now probably isn’t helping matters.

    Am I missing something?  Why would you say no if he asked you in March?  If you want him to propose so badly, why does that month that he does it matter so much?  My husband proposed on a week day with nothing fancy.  I said yes.  End of story.  I just don’t get it.

     

    ETA:  Ok, I just read the part about your brother, but does that WHOLE MONTH have to be bad?

    I’m not a mind reader, but it sounds like the ring isn’t ready and he wont budge on proposing without one. I wouldn’t go around getting you rhopes up that he’s trying to throw you off – you’re only setting yourself up for disappointment. Just relax, you know it’s coming. Enjoy the last bit of excitement in waiting – you’ll miss the anticipation when it’s gone.

    It seems like you’re really determined to ruin this for him, so not really sure what advice we can offer other than blind guessing.

    @subtlebee:  Have you only been together for a year? Or did I read that wrong?

    “So for our first anniversary/valentine’s I pretended all week like I didn’t care and knew he believed me”

     You can’t control another person’s actions. You’ve let your desire to be engaged be known quite clearly. Unless you want to propose to him, let him take it from there. It sounds like he is in the planning stages, so why keep harping on it? Just relax and enjoy being with him without mentioning getting engaged all the time. If you literally ‘wait for him to propose whenever [you] are together’, you are missing out on everything else. What will you do once the planning and wedding are over if that’s what your life is consumed by now?

    Wait, I just read another of your threads. So, you’ve been dating for a year – and you’re already approaching the END of the timeline?? I’ve been with my SO almost four years (living together for almost 3) and haven’t even STARTED a timeline yet. Haha!

    Sorry, this just makes me confused!! Lol, maybe it’s just me…
