    My SO hasn’t proposed yet…I just wanted to say sorry you’ve had a bad waiting day. They happen to us all. The best advice I’ve had from the bee for those kind of days is do something for yourself.

    • Paint your nails
    • Have a coffee and chat with a friend
    • Bubble bath
    • Go shopping

    Hope tomorrow is a brighter day.

    @MsBaker:  Well my SO hasn’t proposed yet, but I know how sometimes you just have a bad day waiting. Maybe he is trying to throw you off so he can surprise you. I know it’s hard not to think about it, but it will come when you least expect it. I’m sorry you’re having a bad day 🙁 I agree with Soon2BD-CBee, Those are some of my favorite things to do when I’m done. Take some time and do something nice for yourself or something you really enjoy. That always lifts my spirits. Hope tomorrow is better for you!

    My So has tried three times to propose to me since Thanksgiving. His plans have fallen through everytime. Waiting gets harder everyday.

    But at the end of the day your just waiting. It’s not the best advice but it’s what gets me through my bad waiting days. You’re over the step of finding a great guy, and your in a relationship. You must love him if you want to marry him.

    have you considered a walk date? some women feel more comfortable having a date in thier head and knowing if he doesn’t propose by then, you’ll walk. it may not work for you but it’s an option ive seen a lot of waiting bees use that makes them feel like the pressure is off until that date.

    @MsBaker:  Ugh. Hugs to you! I’m sorry!! Good for you for putting your foot down and being a good momma first! 🙂

    If I were you I would keep a quiet date in my head and just let him do his thing.. I don’t think you would want him to propose if he was doing it out of pressure, you know?

    Good luck!!

    Well…for some optimism…

    Last year at this time my boyfriend had mentioned that he wanted to propose before Christmas, but due to an unexpected trip we had to take in November, he did not have the money. So I knew it would be soon….and I paid very close attention to his spending habits…hopeing to get a clue as to when he was really broke due to a ring purchase. Then one day he suprised me…completely…considering I knew the ring he was getting took about 8 weeks to get in. So even though you may not think he has a ring…it may be hiding away somewhere to surprise you.


    fingers crossed.

    I would say just try to forget about it, it’s not February yet! Just hold out a little longer and then re-evaluate. I think cos you’re having a bad day, it’s throwing a negative light on everything and it just may not be the case. So my advice is, chin up and best foot forward, February will be here before you know it and hopefully it will bring a wonderful proposal with it!!

    I’m also holding on to a grain of hope for Feb -it was our original timeline but he told me the other day not to expect anything. Still can’t help retain a tiny bit of hope although I’m probably going up be very disappointed! 

    Anyway, I hope it happens for you very very soon!
