Hello! Sorry to hear you’re having the “am I crazy” thoughts but chances are you’re really not. It’s very normal and that’s what’s so great about the waiting boards. There are PLENTY of us who can relate. Welcome to the Hive and I hope you’ll like it here. It sounds like this thread here was MADE for you (it’s all about those of us waiting 6+ years for a proposal).

ladies thank you so much for all of your advice, just an update: my SO and I talked about our timeline. I made sure it was a serious conversation and let him know this was something that was concerning me. He assured me that he wants to be married as well, which I have known all along in my heart. Anyway, he said he is just waiting for the right amount of money, and of course he wants me to be surprised, but that doesnt mean I cant help a little. So we are going to look at rings soon and then I will continue to wait and wait until he has pinched enough pennies to buy that lovely little bling I have been so dreaming of. I don’t think I am unreasonable in my expectations but it’s definitely something he will have to work towards. I think Im ok with that. Until then, I will just admire from afar and be a little green with envy, nothing wrong with that.

Sweetie, i’m right by your side… 8 years and counting – we’re home owners, met at 19 and have lived together ever since – the hive is the perfect place for you for support and to have a rant behind closed doors! Welcome 🙂
