my boyfriends mother slipped yesterday and told me that he told her last year sometime that it was getting time for him to propse and now i cant stop thinking about it! we have been together 8 1/2 yrs since freshman/sophmore yr in HS, and living together for 5 yrs so ive been anticipating it for probaly 4 years now but never let it get to me (ok, it did a few times but i was usually PMS-ing at the time and emotional anyway lol)…
we’ve already mentally planned our wedding and how we would like it so i know that he is headed in the same direction i am, just not knowing WHEN it will happen is whats so aggrivating lol
anyone elses parents or future-parent-in-laws slipped up and kinda hinted that it was coming?.. i dont think she cares that i know at this point, b/c she jokes around all time time about how shes ready for a grandbaby and how that son of hers better get on the ball and make me an honest woman lol… she would be the best mother in law you can ask for! (how many can say that? lol)
sorry so long…thanks guys!!! 🙂

@cdenise89: Sounds like my guys mom! She didn’t slip though, he called and said he wanted to go look at rings in January and she immediately called me haha. Of course my FMIL then went crazy and ruined the whole thing and is no longer involved with ring shopping (My SO isn’t talking to her at all even). So since then he has been on his own! My FMIL adores me and wants us to get married like tomorrow, but she definitely is not as great as yours!! Looks like you won’t be waiting much longer yay!! Here’s to 2013 being your year!

You have been extremely patient with him! I hope that you get your proposal soon!

Oh my I hope it happens soon. Do you think it will be this year?
Post # 6
part of me thinks it will be this year but he’s very good at hiding surprises and what not, so who knows lol
another thing is, about a couple months ago, i said “you know, it’d be neat to tell our children we dated 10 yrs before getting married” (that honestly wouldnt bother me as long as ive made it now lol) and he said “no way, def before that”… it will be 9 yrs this july so that also leaves me to beleive it will be this yr so that we’ll have time to plan everything.

I hope it happens for you! 9 years is a long time, we’re coming up to 7 and sometimes feel like I’m losing my patience haha. My FILs never mention anything about weddings. Fingers crossed for you!

I’m in the almost 9 year boat too! Mind you, we started dating in 7th grade so I’m younger than you, so you have been MUCH more patient than I have haha 🙂 I hope this is your year!!!

- Wedding: June 2014 - Italiano's Humble
my stepdad took my mom with him to buy her e-ring. they’d been together 8 years, too. It was at the point, my XH and I were like “just get married, we’ll pay for it, JUST DO IT!!!” LOLOL!
so, he took her with him. let her try it on, pick it out, all the things a lady could want. then? he sticks it in his pocket, and makes her “sit on it” so to speak for a minute. About 5 miles down the road, at a red light, he put the truck in neutral, pulled the e-brake(we’re talking a tiny town, no one would care lol), turned to her with the ring already in his hand and asked!
I know how SILENTYLY batty she was going, but OH YEAH, she let it out when he finally did it! LOL

You’re a breath of fresh air that you didn’t just walk away because you didn’t have a ring on your finger <3

If you want to get married, maybe you should just ask him.

- Wedding: October 2017 - Baton Rouge, LA
@cdenise89: wow we are def in the same boat! We’ll make 9 years in november, started dating my junior year/ his senior year of high school. I’m honestly surprised at how many 9 year-ers there are around here! I thought I was the only crazy one! haha I think this is our year too. In fact, I know it is. You’ve got it girl, just hold on & hold in the craziness a little longer!
BTW- any of you girls going on 9 years NOT have kids with your man? We dont have kids together & when we tell people how long we’ve been together, they assume we MUST have children to have stayed dating this long. What is wrong with people?! lol

@theEguarantee: Not a 9 yearer (but going on our 8th!) and we don’t have kids together (or at all). But I’ve never been asked either! that’s weird…people are strange lol
I’m fairly certain the proposal will be this year or very early 2014 🙂

I’ll be a 9 yearer come December, and I don’t have kids with my man … heck I don’t even get any action seeing as he’s a traditionalist 🙁
