First off let me say this is my first post and I am alittle nervous! I hope I am not jinxing myself by posting. My Bf and I have will be together for 5 years in August. We have lived together for just over a year now. We talk about marraige and having kids. I am just getting inpatient! So help please and give me some tips on how everyone is staying sane during the waiting game.

I’ve lived with my SO for over a year now and we’ve been together (with 1 year apart in the middle) for over 7 years. I do my best to keep my mind off of going crazy that he hasn’t proposed (despite talks about buying a home, having kids, what our wedding will be like, etc) by staying busy. I take time to go to the gym and spend time with my family.

Well…..we’ve only been together for 1yr and 6months. LOL I stay sane by concentrating on myself and doing things I like. Today I’m going to the day spa. I also scrapbook.

We have been together for 5 years, lived together for 3, talked about getting married for 1.5 years and I am not sane… That wasn’t very good advice. But welcome to the bee! 🙂

What are you waiting for? Why not do the very unconventional thing and ask him? Ok maybe that is too unconventional for most people…including myself.

Do you have any idea why he’s waiting? Does he know what your timeframe is?

5 years is an awful long time to be together without having some sort of time frame set. How old are the two of you? I’d strongly urge you to have a conversation with him about it.

it will happen when the time is right, trust me, i have been with my fiance for 5 years and we will be engaged for 2 years right before our wedding. its good to be with each other for a while and see how it is living together and all that, i highly recommend a long engagement too unless family is willing to help pay

Thank you everyone! I read Mr. Bee’s plan and I think I am going to start following the back up plan.
