I am going absolutely insane! On our four year anniversary (June 8th), he let it slip that he had rings picked out… So we decided to go in and pick one out together. We decided together what to get and had it all ordered… Well it came in today! I was ecstatic to say the least. I went and picked it up because FI was at work. I promised him I would not put it on because he has not officially proposed, but it is sitting in its little box on my counter as we speak!
FI is waiting to propose until the 30th, in front of our closest family members.
I don’t think I can wait that long! I’m going crazy.
How did you WB’s get through the waiting periods?

I didn’t know that my husband (then boyfriend) had a ring in possession or even that he’d ordered it, so I can’t give too much advice there. But the 30th is coming up quickly, and it sounds like he has a great plan that will make the wait worth it!!! Congrats!

If i knew the date he was going to propse i would probably be fine. Especially since its so close.
I think the indefinite waiting time period is harder.

I know how you feel me and my boyfriend are meant to be going away for a few days in the start of July nothing has been booked as he has been telling me he is unsure if he can actually get it off work yet and we will book something a day or two before . but i have found concert tickets to our favourite band and a hotel confirmation for that week.. the waiting is killing me after 9 long years he is finally ready :)!!best of luck with your engagement , it will be lovely to share with your family members.

Try to forget about it as much as possible or you’ll ruin the experience for yourself!!

@cassienicole: I had a friend that let me talk about it incessantly without judging me. I knew FI had it for 4 mo’s before proposing. I, like you, also knew when it would take place (well, I knew the week it’d happen) but it was still amazing.
