@calikary: I bet this can be frustrating, but you’re getting there! And you have a supportive bf who seems interested in the planning, who has a whole plan for engagement (not always the case), and is ready to discuss dates and ideas with you. Being that he’s so receptive to looking at ideas, I think you’re good. 

Maybe try to find another focus for the next 8 months, since you really know it’s coming – AND since you want a short engagement. Getting in shape for the eventual wedding, picking up a new hobby, crafting (good prep for DIY stuff!), volunteering. I’m sure it’s tough to be patient, but it sounds like you’re heading exactly where you want to be, with a great guy, no less – so congrats!

It won’t be a long wait. Just watch. If this year has it’s way, you’ll go to bed, wake up, and somehow it will be 2012. At least it’s been that way on my end. I remember back in February I was worrying about when my guy would get around to even start looking at rings. I blinked, now it’s practically September, he says we will be getting engaged early next year and I’m nervous because I still can’t believe next year is coming up so fast. Don’t worry. πŸ™‚

ugh I know how you feel. My bf and I had a discussion recently, and basically i’ll be waiting until next summer or fall. sucks.

so at least you’ll be engaged before me πŸ™‚

8 months shouldn’t be too bad though. Just try to keep busy and focus on other fun things since you know it’s coming sooner or later πŸ™‚

Looking on the bright side, at least you know the month it will be happening.  But I would be a little disapointed too…I am expecting my proposal before the end of this year and if I found out I had to wait even longer, I would be totally bummed!!

Try to look at it this way. . .If you were hoping for a proposal by the end of the year, an April proposal will come 4-5 months after you were thinking.  Taking up a new hobby would be a great way to make the wait fly by!  And who knows.  Maybe your hobby will help you with those DIY wedding projects you’ll be starting next Spring!!! 

Even though it’s not exactly what you were hoping for, you now know that a proposal IS going to happen and that your SO IS planning something.  That alone is enough to be excited about, isn’t it?! 

I definitely understand how devastating a change in timeline can be because I too have been there.  But in the scheme of things, what’s a few more months when you know that everything will fall into place?
