in Jan. D told me he would propose within 6 months. it has been two, and i still have four to go!! ahhh!! and it sounds like he is pretty set in his mind about doing it at the tail end of that timeline from things that he’s said. we’ve had a rough couple of weeks in our relationship, but we did just move in together in Jan. so i think it’s pretty normal to go through an adjustment period. although i do think some therapy might be in order, but that’s ok because we’re both ready and willing to grow and improve! and luckily, things are really settling down after our rough patch. i had a huge epiphony that, hey, that’s what marriage is. there’s gona be rough times and things to work through no mater who you’re with. but ladies, i cannot imagine waiting another four months for a proposal! and don’t you hate it when your guy says something all wise and mature to you like” we should enjoy every phase of our relationship, you shouldn’t let the fact that a proposal hasn’t happened yet bring you down today. enjoy where we are now” ya okay. i’m sure you would feel the same way if you were my place- NOT! they aren’t in our place, and they don’t understand how we feel =-(

Haha I know what you mean! My SO always goes on about how we wont ever be in this stage ever again and so we should enjoy being able to call each other boyfriend and girlfriend. He says we should fully appreciate where we are and stuff. it’s really hard to when I’m all restless and anxious about a proposal 😉 It feels like by the time we finish “appreciating this stage” I’m going to be 100!

I’m glad things are looking up for your relationship. Do you think you’ll do pre-marital counseling? Not just because of the issues that you’ve had recently, I just think it’s a good idea in general for everyone.

LoL.. Yes! I used to hate it when he’d say something all wise like that. I already was feeling impatient.. that just made me feel like I was being childish/ immature as well. They really don’t understand what it feels like to wait.. trust me. Anytime my FI would be impatiently waiting for a package to arrive or something else that he really, REALLY wanted, I’d say “well, dear.. now you know how it feels!” LoL. We’d kid around about it a lot, though.. because I never really got to the point of having emotional breakdowns or really feeling sad about any of it.
I definitely hope it happens sooner rather than later for you, babes!! You’d think that they’d WANT to do it sooner so that it would actually be a freakin surprise… since that surprise element seems so important to most of them. The longer you wait, the less time there is left in the timeline. Like.. when there’s only two weeks left in the timeline.. dude, I know it’s coming in the next two weeks!! That kinda kills some of the surprise.. to me, anyway. But if the proposal comes when there’s like 3 or 4 months left in the timeline, I feel like it’s a bit less expected or anticipated… if that makes sense.
