@emmrr3:  My SO’s family has been asking him for a year when the proposal was coming. Only in the last 6 months has he started to say “soon enough”. I kinda love it when the family asks because then you know its open to discussion for a second and not because you’re badgering him! (haha) Even my boss at work asked him straight out! He brought me my lunch I forgot on the kitchen counter and when he walked in my boss said “So when are we getting that ring!?” and he just laughed and shook his head.

I just had an interview today for a better place with better pay, so I hope I am as successful as you soon! 🙂 Congrats on the new job!! It always helps to relieve a little stress in general if you make more money, plus the prospect of getting engaged is a little more fun if you can contribute something.

@emmrr3:  That’s always my response too… ask him!

Congrats on the new job!!


@MissRuthie:  I also love when they ask him in front of me! I always watch him to see his reaction. 

Good luck to you and your interview!

@emmrr3:  Congratulations on the new job!  I hope you get that offer letter soon!

I know exactly what you mean about talking to your folks.  My mom burst out in the car one afternoon and asked me what the deal was.  I told her to chill out – it’s hard enough on me to wait, I don’t need the additional pressure!  Neither does my SO!  But it’s sweet that your parents care so much.  (:

Congrats on the new job! Just wanted to say that my family asked and I told them the same thing. 🙂
