RobbieAndJuliahaha:  I totally feel your pain! I have been with my guy for 5 1/2 years and i too really envy those girls who never had to have “the conversation”! I know so many people who have met, got engaged and married since I have been with my boyfriend and the majority of them never had to nudge their man to pop the question. So many proposals were out of the blue. What really gets me is those couples who last week were on the verge of “breaking up”, get engaged the next week!! You can’t help but question yourself and ask why hasn’t he asked me?

Our time will come, we need to be patient and not push them away. If we believe their love is strong, true and sincere we need to just trust that they have a plan.X

I totally feel your pain. It’s SOOOOOOO hard to be patient and just focus on enjoying life as it is now, especially with all these dang engagement announcements. I’ve had several friends MEET their now-husbands a year or two after my SO and I started DATING, so that can be hard. Hang in there!

I just wanted to jump the gun and add my “Me too!” We’re pretty young still, but it’s gotten to the point where we introduced timelines, and now they’re being pushed back even further than it was to begin with.

Either way, I, and obviously many other people, know exactly how you feel. It’s so frustrating!

Oh, and when I read your little spoiler alert I was so confused until I read the later bit about Glenn & Maggie. I’m a huge fan of the show as well! ^-^

IMO, everyone should have timeline talks with their SO. It’s important to make sure you’re on the same page about things, even if you kind of already think you are. I’ve been with my Boyfriend or Best Friend for a little over a year, and we’ve had talks about it. (I think he’s planning to propose at Christmas.) Anyway, don’t let it get you down. If you know he’s serious about you, and you’re serious about him, he’ll come around soon. All easier said than done, though. Good luck! We’re here for you.

RobbieAndJuliahaha:  Soooo I can print that out and put it on the fridge for him to read, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ You said everything exactly as I’ve been thinking it in my own head! Waiting is hard, keeping your mouth shut about it is even harder!!

He sounds like a wonderful guy who’ll be lucky to marry you – keeping my fingers crossed that you don’t have to wait much longer!
