My name is claireos and I’ve been a sufferer of the secret waiting attitude. πŸ™‚ I’m in a better position financially than my guy. I’m also a very, all or nothing type of person. I take on most of everything in the house and our lives because it makes me feel better knowing something is done, not who did it. There have been a couple occassions where I’ve thought, if he can’t get around to it, I’ll just buy him a ring and propose. I even got to the point of asking him how he would feel if I did propose. He wasn’t too hot about the idea. πŸ™‚

Did something set you off or is it just one of those days?

@Tunacupcakes: I told my girlfriends “by the end of the summer we are going shopping. It will either be for my wedding dress or for a nice black gown to wear to his funeral (if he doesn’t go through with his promise to me). But either way girls, we are going shopping!” Seriously though, at my age you best believe that I will start dating as soon as I can if he doesn’t meet his timeline and we have to break up. I know that that sounds harsh, but I am almost 31 and I don’t have all the time in the world.

Yep – all. the. time. even when he was being sweet and I shouldn’t have. I got over them though when I understood his proposal obstacles, like money. He proposed before I could get them back again.

I had a kettle full of resentment with his name on it for a solid 7 months.

I’m not waiting anymore but when I was.. oh man. I moved in without an engagement and thought I’d be okay with it, but I so wasn’t. I had this big epic meltdown one night. It was not pretty.

@Tunacupcakes: I get that way sometimes, especially with this guy I have a huge crush on!  (Don’t worry, my SO knows I have a crush on him, we’re very open and honest with each other).  I’ve thought, maybe I’ll just go and kiss this guy and see if it lights a fire under my SO’s patooty!  But then I become horrified at the thought and remember how much that would hurt my SO.  We’re in a good place too in our relationship, it’s just fun to think about all the cartoon what-ifs!

I get this too. Mostly to myself though. I rarely let my SO see that side of me because I don’t want him to see me in a tude about getting engaged. So I like to keep my waiting bee attitude to myself lol. I usually console myself by getting on here though.
