@Tunacupcakes:  Awww  –  the winter is a gloomy time for a lot of people, BUT it doesn’t have to be.  Maybe now that he’s possibly going to propose in the winter, it’ll give you a reason to be excited and something to look forward to.  You’ll have that memory for the rest of your lives and every year at that time of year when you get gloomy – you can just think of when he proposed and get warm fuzzies!

Awww *hugs* sorry he wants to wait until December. I understand him wanting to save up, though. I don’t even think mine is saving yet so it’s probably not going to be until later this year as well. Maybe he is trying to throw you off of an autumn proposal by saying it won’t be until the end of the term? If not, then like @MrsGibby2Bee: said, it willl be a great memory and will cheer you up when you get the winter blues.

@Tunacupcakes: Really? I think the Chistmas season is the most romantic season! I’d love a winter proposal!

I think in a way it’s good he told you what his timeline is. At least that when when autumn came and went you wouldn’t be sad because nothing happened. I hate winter too, but I love the crisp blue skies and snowstorms snuggling in front of the fireplace watching a movie. I think winter was built for romance πŸ™‚

I know it feels like it’s far away, but I think it’s very good that he told you what his plan is, so then you’re not waiting and getting frustrated that it didn’t happen when you thought it would.

It’ll be here soon πŸ™‚

Wait…next December, as in December 2012?? Or this December, as in December 2011? I hope he’s not gonna keep you waiting until next year!!

I get gloomy during winter too but I usually find it doesn’t kick in until around January when all the holiday excitement is over. Think of it this way — if you celebrate any holiday in December, it will be beautiful and such a great time for a proposal because holidays are a time for family, for slowing down, for cooking and eating good food, for tradition, for cozying up with the ones you love and creating memories…and I think that a proposal would be the BEST way to symbolize all that! It would be him proposing marriage, a lifetime of creating traditions and building new memories, and forming your own little branch of the family to celebrate with every year.

And like MrsGibby said above me, having the memory of the proposal to look back on might change how you feel about winter when you associate it with such a happy time.

December is only really six months away…it’s not that long!! Hang in there girl, you know he has a plan so you don’t have to worry over that anymore, you’re in the home stretch now! I think it’s easier emotionally when you KNOW he’s got a definite plan and he’s definitely on the same page as you, than when you don’t really know what he’s thinking/if he’s taking any action/so on and so forth. And just come on WB to pass the time and drool over the wedding porn and KNOW that that’s going to be YOU very soon! πŸ™‚

@Tunacupcakes: It’s not silly to have hopes and dreams! Just sometimes you have to be okay with expanding on them or letting the parameters of them change as circumstances change πŸ™‚

I also had a winter (xmas eve) proposal πŸ™‚  Very romantic and now something special to think about at that time…. Also, my husband proposed less than a month after a conversation we had about how he needed more time (for financial reasons)… So, it could happen sooner than you think, and you’d be totally surprised!

@Tunacupcakes: If he proposes during Christmas this year you won’t be an outsider looking in on other people’s romance…you will have the ULTIMATE romance and everyone else will be looking at YOU feeling jealous! I’m honestly a little jealous myself…I have always dreamed of a Christmas proposal but timing just didn’t work out that way for me. When I waste time watching proposal videos on Youtube (tell me I’m not the only person who does that…) I make a point to seek out the Christmas ones.

@Tunacupcakes: Aww..I see your point now that you have described winter in Oregon. Its a bit different in MI. Those conditions will NOT do your moissy justice (funny that thats what my main concern would be! lol). Winter blues do suck but I have a feeling the world will be nothing but sunshine, rainbows and butterflies for you  that day, no matter how cold or gloomy. That will all just melt away πŸ™‚
