3 weeks ladies, I’ve made it without talking about engagements! Usually when I’d bring it up I have to admit I was angry. The talks were not constructive.
Something changed in me and I feel cool as a cucumber. I’m still anxious for it to happen…don’t get me wrong…can’t come soon enough. However the ball is in his court is my mantra and something is working. He has been even more sweet than usual since I’ve backed off.
However if Labor day weekend gets here and nothing happens things are not going to be very pleasant. That is my limit. Wish me luck!

Good luck! The things you are looking or waiting for often happen when you stop talking about it and take the focus off it!

Good luck and I think I’ll borrow your mantra, if you don’t mind! I’ve got a similar mental line in the sand (My birthday is during our vacation – August 15th) and if he hasn’t asked by then….enough is enough.

I have this huge smile on my face, because it’s so nice to hear other girls who feel just like me!
My birthday is tomorrow and although I just don’t feel like it’s going to happen tomorrow… I still am slightly hoping after 3.5 years! Lets not lie… im really hoping! haha 🙂

Errrr. Does posting on this website count? lol. I’ve been pretty good with not bringing it up with my b/f lately. He’s the one who’s always saying – ‘When we get a house…’
Good job though!! Keep it up!!

I completely respect you right now. I know it can be difficult. I’m the same way when it comes to weddings. Mr.TKE and I have yet to set a date and we have 6 weddings this year. I’m hoping he gets the bug from all these weddings.

I think this is awesome! I know you’ve posted before about being frustrated and trying not to take it out on him. I found that when I stopped bringing it up and let things go, he proposed about a month later. I think you’re doing a great job and keep it up! Enjoying your bf now will help you really enjoy the engagement when it comes!

GOOD JOB!!! Letting it go can be tough, but necessary for your sanity at this point. And the endless talks can be frustrating. So you’re doing the right thing.

Thanks fellow bees. This was not easy! I had 2 due dates in my head already and they didn’t stick when I tried to keep my mouth shut but this one is sticking. I’ve had to bite my tongue and once he said last week how great it will be when we are living together I had to keep my hand from smacking him alongside the head…LOL! JK! I sure thought about it though because if he wants us to live together he has to propose first.
Doing the right thing isn’t always the easiest that is for sure……

Well, he can let his desire to live with you be his motivation for proposing! I know he might seem like he doesn’t “get it” but if you continue to NOT live together until he proposes he’ll learn soon enough 🙂
Keep your sense of humor about it, that’s super important.

That’s great! I think it may come before the deadline. Men start to wonder why we don’t ask abotu something we’ve been asking about for a while.

Goodf job viking! I’m glad you are feeling calm and leaving it in the hands of the universe until your wtf date comes. Afterall, you’ve said your piece. Now better to keep faith unless broken.
And you can always vent to us!
