BF and I know we will be getting married next year. We have gotten our parents blessings and are trying to figure out the right date for our overseas wedding. But, he hasn’t proposed yet!!
And I was starting to get really antsy. Even though he works 100+ hour weeks and I know he is GOING to propose, eventually. I wasn’t being crazy – I would just say things like “I can’t wait for my new accessory to complete my look” when we got dressed up. But every once in a while he would say “pleassee don’t put so much pressure on me, I want to make it special and I haven’t had the time” I’ll do it when work calms down (which may be in a few months).
I thought he would do it on our 10 yr anniv in May but he’s been soo busy that I honestly would be ok even if he didn’t. I know how much he loves me and we will be getting married. It would be nicer if thr proposal happened earlier in the planning process but I do not want to make this stressful time (due to work) any harder for him.
I also saw a super sweet email he sent a few weeks ago about my ring to his parents (he doesn’t have the ring yet). Right now I’m really happy knowing that even though he is so busy, he is still thinking about it 🙂 Makes waiting a million times easier. I love my man so much! 11pm and he is still at work :/

I know it must be HARD! especially because you’ve been together 10 years! I know SO and I will be getting married summer 2014 or 2015. He’s given me the OK to start looking at venues and pricing things out, but I’m still anxious about getting the proposal.
Try to focus on thegood parts! Maybe guy a cheap fake engagement ring and wear it out sometimes and to feel good! lol silly, but might work!

I’m actually super calm about it now (especially after seeing the email). I know it’s coming and I’m excited but the best part will be becoming his wife and continuing to be his life partner. And I wouldn’t be a good life partner if I couldn’t give him a break when he’s been soo busy.
I’m actually super excited because I ordered a Tungsten potential wedding band for him on Amazon and it should arrive today. He keeps telling me he’s not used to jewelry and “does he HAVE to wear a wedding ring?” to which I say “YES” lol So it’s his “trial” ring. I hope it fits! He’s going to wear it around the house to see if he can get used to it or if it’s really a big deal 🙂
