    So exciting.  With all those possibilities at least it will be a surprise!  I think it is sweet he wants to pick out the ring solo.  My Fiance knows I can be picky, so he definitely included me in the process.

    I’m not waiting but I was 31 when we got engaged in May – hang in there – you’re still young too!!!   I was getting antsy but in hindsight I wouldn’t change anything – it worked out beautifully.  Good luck!

    I’m 21 and impatient to get the show on the road; I admire you ladies who are older than me, in longer relationships, and are nevertheless waiting patiently!

    Age is relative. Age doesn’t mean anything. Age is just a number. I think we all feel the same things as we journey through engagements and marriages.

    My bet is on your birthday. 🙂

    I wasn’t an “official” waiting bee (my husband popped the question on me in a surprise), but I didn’t get engaged till I was 30.  I just hadn’t met “the one” before then!

    I voted for your NYC trip because I’m a iittle biased and love New York. I admit I was a little surprised with the number of 21 and 22 year olds who are waiting, but I also think that it is great that they have found the man of their dreams so early in life. I guess I could have potentially been here waiting when I was 22 because we had been together for 3 years at that point, but I didn’t really feel like I was waiting until much more recently

    I would find it harder to wait if I was older, too! When i was younger, I was always reminding myself that I was still young and to chill out =]. People get defensive about that though–I have friends who are younger than me and get all kinds of “age ain’t nothing!” about it. There are so many social implications that you should be getting married in your older 20’s, too, but also so many other factors. You have your lives together more, which I think plays a MUCH bigger factor in the waiting game. Like, it’s the icing on the cake! 20 and 21 year olds are still typically in college and trying to figure things out! I remember having moments like that and bringing myself back to reality, lol.

    I think it’ll be a very RANDOM night. Like, a Tuesday dinner at home, when you have a mouth ful of macaroni and cheese. And then you’ll be so surprised you’ll knock your wine glass over and then you’ll have a good laugh over it =]

    dude im turning 30 in 4 months!!! and g**d***** i want to get hitched already!!!! before i even met my Boyfriend or Best Friend, i totally had this vision in my head that i’d be married by 28, leaving 1-2 years to decide about kids, because even though in my heart of hearts i don’t want kids, if it was going to happen i wanted to pop them out before 30. but i also thought i’d be settled in a career and making more $$ now, but that didn’t happen either. it’s not that i’m not happy with where my life is right now, but like everyone else, i’m tired of waiting!!

    I was also 31 when we got engaged. I will be 32 (but 1 month shy of 33) by the time we get married. We were dating 3 years when we got engaged.  I don’t feel old at all, I feel wise and mature and confident that I am in a much better position to handle the good and the challenging times in marriage than I would have been had I done this in my early 20’s.

    I was 31 when I got engaged (34 now)…but I got engaged 2 months after meeting my Fiance so I guess that doesn’t count as waiting. I wasn’t even interested in marriage prior to so I didn’t feel pressed when those around me got engaged. 29 is definitely not old…your time is coming and when it does, it will be worth the wait.
