@beeeforeigocrazy:  Welcome to the bee! I know exactly how you feel! My SO and I have had the talk… a year and a half ago! He’s had a ring… for a year! Then that ring turned out to be worthless (the jeweler scammed him!) and we found the ring I will wear… in November! Guys have a plan in their heads about how they want things to be before they propose… for my guy it’s about his job and living situation. For others it’s finishing school, finding a job, saving up for the ring, etc. My advice to you is focus on you, come up with a timeline that works for you (like I will not wait for a ring past my 30th Birthday or whatever) and then pick up a hobby, join a club, or start an exercise regime. That should help with the urges to start planning lol You should also have a talk with your SO, you could even tell him your walk date (I told my SO and he wasn’t thrilled but he understood why I felt that way) Good luck!

@beeeforeigocrazy:  honey, he had the ring and you know it’s oming…. Let him do it his way. I was in your shoes a year ago and that’s the time I joined weddingbee… I know. its not like you don’t know his intentions, you know you will be engaged in no time 🙂

@beeeforeigocrazy:  I usually get badgered and berated on here for it, but I agree. I dont think one side having control over the proposal is fair. If youre the type of girl who willingly ceeds control of your life to another more power to you but some of us aren’t like that. Waiting makes me much less enthusiastic about any type of wedding. The longer I wait the more likely i am to be like ok court house tomorrow! great!

I personally told my SO all of this because I am also honest to a fault. I hope he really understood me.

I understand how easy it can be to be disappointed about him not proposing on various occassions. In the end, the ring is only a wedding though, not your relationship. You already have a future together, but rings are always nice 🙂
