Welcome to the Hive! 

I can imagine how disappointed you feel right now. It’s so hard to think that the proposal will be coming sooner than it really does. 

However, I think it’s really good that the lines of communication between your SO and you are open. You guys talk and are honest with each other. You both respect each other needs and goals which is key. It’s so hard to wait but I think you’re in a good place and have to just let him do this thing for now. 

Sometimes we all need a place to vent and this is a supportive, wonderful community full of very wise women!

Oh man. Believe me when I tell you I know exactly what you are talking about because we are the same age and I am getting married next year! I myself (and this is only my opinion) would not be moving in with a guy if I really wanted a proposal from him. He’s going to have the conveniences a marriage would provide without actually having to get married.

I know how you feel. I also felt like I was on a bit of my own timeline before I got engaged, but now that it has happened I wouldn’t have it any other way. Even though it’s not important to you to have it be in the right place at the right time, it may be important to him. Maybe he wants to be proud of how he asks you because he only gets to do it once! My Fiance proposed in some very romantic scenery. I’m so glad I waited just a little longer without going totally loopy 😛 Your SO may also want a little element of surprise!

@RainbowHope:  I understand what your saying about wanting to spend time together before trying to have a baby! That is definately important. When my fiance and I started talking about living together I told him I wouldn’t feel comfortable moving in together unless I had a long term commitment from him (at least being engaged). It wasn’t some kind of tactic though, I really didn’t want to be living with someone without a long term commitment because if one of us wasn’t that sure about the relationship I wanted to have a clean break and not have to deal with all the intermingled items/house/pets whatever.

@RainbowHope:  Yay!!! Glad it worked out! Now you can just sit back and relax. (yes, take the time to relax, don’t start planning even though you will be tempted). Smile
