I’m so happy to hear your wonderful news! Congrats! Hopefully he won’t make you wait too long So you can share your news with your family!

As far as the girlfriends thing goes.. Why not try joining a gym or take an art class or invite some girls out from work? 

Id be ready to burst if I were you too! Such an exciting time!!

Congratulations! I went through the same thing, although we did tell our immediate family once the ring was purchased. We held off on telling friends, I felt like I was going crazy!

Oh my, that sounds exactly how my situation would be if I were to be getting engaged/got engaged.  My boyfriend’s mom would probably be the most excited.  One of my bestfriends of 20+ years has always been a Debbie downer whenever it comes to me getting good news, so I hate telling her much of anything.   She loves being there when I have bad news though, so that is not very reassuring..

I have one girlfriend who would probably be excited, but she is currently going through problems with infertility, so it really depends on the day with her..

My guy friends.. Exactly the same like ‘Oh cool a ring.. Did you hear about the new game on xbox?’

I’m pretty sure my parents would be like and ‘why did he buy you a ring when you should be saving for other things?’

I am pretty much terrified to get engaged and tell anyone lmao.  How sad is that?


I’m excited for you though!  It is great that your boyfriend sounds excited too!! Be sure to let us know when it happens  =)

Floofy:  You have us!!! EEEEK that is SO exciting!!! It will be soon, I’m sure!

I remember the feeling when I very naughtily/by mistake discovered that my then-SO had actually BOUGHT the ring and it had been SHIPPED. It took him 3 months from the time he received the ring to propose, but that was only because the trip we went on right after he got the ring didn’t go as planned so he didn’t end up proposing on it like he’d planned.

Hang on. . . it’s coming soon!
