@MsBrooklynA: Haha–I love the idea of engagement gods. But if they’re out there they’ve been playing with my emotions! (I was feeling down yesterday and was in a grumpy mood because of it. BF saw this and tried to cheer me up by asking if I was excited for Friday. Because he has a surprise dinner for Valentine’s day set up. But how am I not supposed to get my hopes up even though I know for sure he’s not proposing then?! Sigh.)

Anyway, don’t feel like an old maid–I’ve been here as long as you have and I definitely didn’t think I would! And it sounds like you’re making great progress!

@MsBrooklynA: Haha–actually I looked it up and I’ve been here about 4 months longer than you. So I’m an old old maid. I’m just not much of a poster. I tend to stick to the NWR threads and keep a low profile. I don’t want to jinx anything!! 

My guy is promising that things will happen “very soon”, but that’s down from “I won’t make you wait forever”. What the heck are those supposed to mean? But now that I’m a little more sure that it’s actually going to happen I’m trying to keep my trap shut so that the engagement is actually relaxed and surprised, not tense and forced.

So I actually thought about your post overnight and knew I should come say my peace.

I don’t think you should combine accounts. I think you should tell him that you don’t feel comfortable doing this until your married. I think that by doing stuff like this it actually makes it easier for the guy to wait because in their mind – nothing will change. They feel they practically already are engaged/married/whatever so they don’t need to take those next steps. I feel that you should hold out for the sake of putting some pressure on him to get a move on it.

This is just my personal opinion. I see tons of waiting bees coming on here saying “we live together. we share accounts. we practically are married already – why won’t he just propose already?!” and I think the reason is that the guy doesn’t feel a need to yet.

Best of luck!

I have to agree with JrzyGurl. You have to be careful about that kind of thing. It’s ok to share things, live together, etc. But you have to be careful about sharing too much. Because, like she said, guys can get complacent after they get everything but the wife. BUT, you know your relationship better than anyone on here. Either way, I hope there’s a proposal soon!
