@aithinne:  Woohoo new board! Hopefully I won’t be on it too long! Crossing my fingers for less than a month. SO has the ring. I’ve never seen it, tried it on, anything. I’m so paranoid that it won’t fit. haha. I’d ruin a perfectly good proposal with fat fingers.

Which is why I went digging… Wanted to find it to see if it fit… I don’t buy that my finger size is 5.5.

Bahaha brilliant! Part 4 here we come…

Just from our previous thread, my anniversary is late March. We’re at 7.5 years now :O there’s nothing really preventing MrWigeon from going ahead and doing it, but we had quite a chat about it this weekend (illness + work stress and it all boiled over). My gut instincts have been wrong until now but I think things may be starting to move.

@aithinne:  Thanks! I’m trying to not get my hopes up. We have nothing planned in the next month, so unless he does something spontanious and unexpected (not like him at all) then it could still be a while. But knowing he has a ring helps with the waiting. At least I know it’s coming 🙂

What are you doing to keep yourself busy? I’d be googling “How to crack a safe.”

Lol I feel like a naughty schoolgirl with the length our old thread got to XD

 

 

@LittleWigeon:  Congrats on your super duper long relationship! It’s just so awesome ^^ Makes me feel a little silly for getting excited the BF and I have been together 2.5 years in 11 days though.

I really really hope he starts to pull something out of the bag for you <3

@NotablySidedJP:  Keep myself busy? HA! I nag. A lot. I’m horrible about it. Absolutely horrible. But then he’ll bring it up, and I fall back into the pattern. 

Seriously, I just work. It helps that I don’t live with him, so I don’t see him hardly at all during the week. Otherwise, I look up ideas for our wedding, read books, cross stitch and just generally try to distract myself.

@LittleWigeon:  That’s good to hear. Progress is always good.

I don’t know why ladies but the pass week or something I’m really struggling with waiting, it’s really difficult and I might have to quit bee for a bit or something. it’s hard to see girl after girl getting engaged when I’m not and that’s horrible because these girls were me, they felt what I felt and it’s lovely that they’ll be moving on because they do deserve it but at the moment the whole thing is driving me crazy. it’s probably just one of those passing things because normally I’m very happy and supported by the bee.

@aithinne:  I nag too Frown. Some days worse than others. I’m really bad about the SUPER unsubtle hints. Like when I ask him who he wants to be his best man, where he wants to go on a honeymoon, what venues he likes… I also comment a lot about October coming up and wanting an October wedding and a year to plan. He just says “yeah, yea, yeah.” I pretty much talk about the wedding as if we are already engaged (I haven’t booked or bought anything yet, I’m not completely crazy). He normally just responds that we’ve got other things to worry about first.

Luckily he doesn’t know I know he has the ring, so I keep thinking he’s going to plan something romantic, but that’s out of character for him, so we’ll see.

Just wanted to let you know you weren’t alone on the nagging.

I’m still waiting….Ughhh 🙁 one way or the other other I would just like to know if he is ever going ask or am I just being led on. I am to the point that when we are out shopping and he ask if I want to go in an look at rings I say no. I just want to add that one of the reasons I decline going to look at rings now is because I have no idea what price range he wants to shop in. Originally he said he expect to spend 4-6 thousand, but I had found a ring I really liked at 2 thousand at Kings. Occasionally we would look at Kays or some place in the mall and never really found anything I liked comparable to that ring, but then the Vera Wang collection is now at Kings and I really like a 3k one there.  I had told him that I liked both of those and couldn’t decide which i liked better, they look completely different.  Since I want the proposal to be a suprise and so does he I told him that since I loved both rings he could just pick between the two and suprise me.  2 years after he took me ring shopping the first time I finally asked why he hadn’t and one of the ten reasons why he hadn’t was that the ring I liked was too expensive, couldn’t I just settle for one from Walmart. Before I go sounding like a snob, the only reason I am offended by his question is that our finances have not changed, in fact he makes about 8-10k more a year than he did then.  and I make about 25k more a year then I did then. The way he said it just made it seem like the whole idea of being engaged is less important to him than it was before. It’s been 2 and 1/2 years since he first took me ring shopping and has taken me every few months since.

@PenguinLove:  I had a hard week last week too. A friend of mine got engaged after knowing her boyfriend for a FRICKIN’ MONTH!!!!! Cry I told my boyfriend this and ran into the bedroom crying- simply because it wasn’t me getting engaged. Maybe I’m just weird, but any time I see someone getting engaged, I cry. For a selfish reason. 5% i’m happy for the person, 95% because it’s still. not. me. getting. engaged. Ugh.

When the hell will it finally be our turn?

All I can say is, I am glad we’re feeling bummed when it’s NOT high wedding season. That’s the worst. 

I’m here for you Ms. Penguin! Don’t quit the chat, that’s what we are here for 🙂

Going to horn in on your waiting chat here.  I’m not-so-patiently-waiting as well.  BF talked about rings first in july, we had a few more convos and then about two weeks ago asked for my ring size again.  It’s been hard, at least 5 people we know have gotten engaged in the last month or two.  Granted, most of them had been together longer or already had a kid together but STILL!!

I’m so glad I found the Bee so that I know I’m not the only person in this situation going nuts.

How was everyone’s Monday?
