Wow you have some awesome things to look forward to…. proposal or not! When you start feeling your spirits slipping just come back and read this post and think about all the awesome things you have going for you. That usually helps me when I’m in one of my grumpy why-hasn’t-it-happened-yet moods! πŸ™‚

Happy early birthday AND 1 year anniversary!

It’s great to focus on how wonderful your relationship is as is.

  Wow, you do have some really, really fun things coming up!! I’m getting a classroom ready to welcome back 4th graders….wanna switch? πŸ˜‰

  I think you’re doing the right thing. Keep focusing on all the fun you’re going to have. I am personally jealous about the $9 thrift store find! Good work! πŸ™‚ No matter what, you guys are going to have a great time together. If a proposal would happen, it would be icing on the cake.

  Enjoy all of the fun things! Proposal or not, let us know how they go!

Sounds like you had some good “retail therapy” thus far. Hope you enjoy your birthday/anniversary weekend regardless.

That happened to me.  We had only been together about 8 months when people started “expecting” us to get engaged.  He had just left for the military and after a trip home to see me, everyone was asking “where’s the ring?!”.  I had been really excited for a while and thought maybe the proposal was coming. 

I wasn’t disappointed when it didn’t – I was fine to wait, we hadn’t been together very long and I knew we’d get married someday anyway, so I felt no rush.  But I think all the pressure from people around me asking and expecting it kind of caused me to resent the expectation, then I started thinking the same things you are – maybe it’s not the right time, or maybe he didn’t ask because he’s not ready.

A few months and a few visits later, we went out to dinner one night and I told him how irritated I was with all the expectation everytime we were together.  I believe I even said I thought it was actually too soon for us to be engaged anyway. 

He was really supportive and told me not to listen to what others thought, that we know what our relationship is and that’s all that matters, etc.  I felt better, but I definitely wasn’t feeling excited and anticipating a proposal.

He proposed the next day, ha ha!  I was super excited and obviously so happy, but I totally understand the feeling of the expectation and desire to be in the whole thing to just sort of fizzle sometimes.  I think it’s totally normal.

I hope once you two get together again, all is back to happy πŸ™‚
