missbb86:  I could only get the link to work on my cellphone for some reason! Thanks for sharing; a few too many religious references for me but an interesting read none the less.

Fellow 86’er bee here… just waiting… and… waiting…

You sound just like me, girl! Are you me?! Haha. Been with my bf for 2.5 years too and these past several months…especially lately, I too feel like I’ve become depressed to an extent over waiting. I’m gonna read the article and let you know what I think!

That was a great article and so true. Maybe we are innocent to the transformation our men are going thru before they propose. And maybe when we post on this site we are grueling in our despair …haha. good read.

hrtsnstrs:  “.. innocent to the transformation our men are going through before they propose..” … is SO well put and true, I think! Time is relative, and I think it goes by very differently for each person.

It feels like it’s been “forever” since he bought the ring. It’s been about six months. Which… isn’t terrible, considering he also wanted to wait until it was paid off. It’s not until it’s been a year that I will say something (because, wth, right?) but for now, he’s assured me he needs no pressuring and it’s coming. While *I* may be there in my mind, we can’t really know what’s going on in theirs, even when we know they love us and want to be with us.

I read the article and found it really good. It also echoed sentiments that my sister shared with me, about the virtues of waiting and trust/faith in your fella. There’s a lot of growth in the trust/faith piece that I think is worthwhile and part of the wait. (And hopefully worth the wait, right?)
