So, no proposal this past Sunday. For whatever reason, I was sure something special was going down. Nothing. I’m so not excited about getting engaged or planning our wedding. What wedding? He hasn’t put a ring on it yet. Have any of you waiting bees, given up on waiting? I’ve given up. I’ve been so busy with my kids, law school, work and writing, that I guess I haven’t had much time to think about the engagement. But then Feb. 14th happened and I just knew it was the day. Nothing. I don’t get it; what is he waiting for?! Oh well, it is what it is and I’m moving on from it. Just thought I’d vent before I sent him a long letter with my frustrations. My birthday party is this weekend and it’s going to be so much fun. All my friends and some family will be there. I almost said, “maybe it will happen then.” But I’m not going to do that to myself. I want to enjoy my birthday weekend.

I know you are wanting this but try not tostress about it too much, just let it happen. I do thik however, that you should have a cut off date, I know of a friend who has been with her bf going on 7 yrs now and she’s really wanting to get married and have kids and it seem like he is avoiding it. She just brushes it off now, but her friends know that she’s been waiting on this for the last 5 yrs!

@EFRAU: I have a cut off date, but don’t want to pressure him too much. We actually agreed on the date. So, I know it’s happening before the end of the year, but I surely thought it would happen before Spring (I actually thought NYE). We already have a date that we’ve agreed on and that we both like. We’re already saving $$ for the wedding.

I feel the same way. I didn’t even THINK about it happening on V-Day because I knew it wouldn’t and I’ve been worrying about this house. (plus we aren’t big v-day people)
I think maybe you should keep going with your schedule and it may come soon. You never know about your birthday party either. 🙂

I think boys just dont understand how agonising it is, to have absolutely NO control???
They also i think believe it takes around 2-3 months to plan and execute an entire wedding!
Where do they get these crazy ideas???
Good luck.. ill bet he will propose on some random Wednesday night when you are home watching tv in your snuggie 🙂

@Sydney, LOL!!! Yes, that is likely to happen. In front of the television watching one of my Victorian era movies cuddled up in the snuggies. LOL!!! Classic. But being that he is a planner and super romantic, he is likely to make it a big deal. He wants things to be perfect when it comes to me, so I doubt it will be on a night at home. But then again, maybe that would totally surprise me. I’m sort of a control freak. If he planned something huge, I’d ask questions days leading up to the event and would even say, “You’re proposing, huh?” LOL!!! So, who knows and I’m not going to worry. I was just slightly disappointed it didn’t happen v-day and it’s so hard for me waiting while writing about weddings all the time. SMH.
