I have been so positive and optimistic lately.. until today. I just feel so disappointed and frustrated at my bf. Most of you probably don’t know my stituation, but my bf and I have been together 3 years and have lived together for a year. He told me he was going to propose at the end of the summer…. and it is officially fall. I promised myself I was not going to wait to talk to him until the end of november because I remember when he told me the end of summer I asked him.. so around august september??? and he said, or october or november. I just dont know what to think.. He spends his money on all sorts of different things but I dont really think he has even seriously looked at rings. I am probably just so upset because it is offically the end of summer and It didnt happen in the timeline i expected. I guess I do need to give him some slack because the end of the summer for him is october or november because of his job at the forest service. He isn’t giving me any signs… If he is thinking about it soon he is sure good at hiding it. ahhhh
Im just so frustrated right now!

@bellababy: Aw, just hang in there okay? If your SO doesn’t commit to his deadline of November, maybe you guys should talk then – but just relax a little bit and enjoy your time with him. I know how tough it is waiting, but maybe he did think the end of summer meant the end of summer for him (like you said)!

I know how you feel! Try looking at it this way: He said maybe October or November… true, those months aren’t summertime so he won’t be proposing by the time he technically said (end of the summer), but those months are RIGHT around the corner. By December or probably at the most by January 1st 2011 you will be ENGAGED! That is only 3 months away and it will most likely happen sooner than 3 months. You are in the home stretch here! Hold out for it and I’m sure his proposal will be amazing!

I was tossing out a few reminders/helpful hints about engagement rings to my SO the other day and he said something kinda profound to me. He told me that the proposal is like his walk down the aisle. It is the one thing he will get to do all on his own to show me and the world how he feels about me. So he really wants it to be a surprise and get to take the time to make it his vision.
You SO is probably doing the same thing with the vague timeline; he just wants to surprise you and make it a unique moment. Hang in there, and you can always spend time here and do some secret pre-planning
