You know honestly I’m glad my engagement was a surprise for the most part because had I known I don’t think I would have been able to control myself trying to wait. I eventually accidently did find out exactly when it was going to happen ( down to the exact day) but it wasn’t until about a month prior so it wasn’t THAT stressful of a wait but it was a bit. 

 I did not help pick out my ring, I knew I didn’t want to do that, I think it would have made waiting harder, so I honestly had no idea when he got it.

Anyway, congrats hun!!! Enjoy the wait (try to anyway) and in the meantime you could sneak and look at wedding stuff, like on pinterest and things like that to help pass the time, just an idea lol

I absolutely know how you feel! I know a proposal is coming before summer but it’s gonna be a surprise (he is letting me in on exactly none of his plans) and while I’m excited it’s also hard not to be impatient!

Best tip is just to stay busy!

  • Wedding: July 2020

We started looking at rings and then it was clear that I didn’t need to be involved anymore, so I knew that it was coming and wondered when it would happen.  I wasn’t too anxious but I sometimes wondered to myself if it would happen at certain points, such as when we went on a trip recently.  It didn’t happen then, and I decided in my mind it would happen around Christmas, but I was totally caught off guard when he proposed the night before Thanksgiving.  It’s sometimes tough to wait but it’s totally worth it!  I just joined Weddingbee and started looking at posts here to pass the time.

Yessssss. 

We booked the venue and he bought the ring in October. It was supposed to take 6-8 weeks to make. So it should be done anytime really. We have a date night planned for this weekend (sort of staycation downtown), then his company holiday dinner/ night out two weeks from now, then Disney in Jan. Not to mention Christmas and New Years. 

So I hope it’ll be this month. But no clue when. And it’s driving me crazy. 

Everybody says to relax and enjoy it… but this on edge waiting is not fun to me. I’m a type A planner and not knowing when just makes me neurotic. And I know for sure that it’s coming and roughly when and roughly what it will look like. 

I just hate being caught off guard. 

Not sure if that makes any sense. But I am 100% with you. 🙂

I’m in the same boat. My stone has been purchased and my ring is designed. We’re just waiting on the stone to be set right now. I don’t think my boyfriend is going to hold onto the ring for too long after he gets it back from the jeweller…fingers crossed. The anticipation is killing me though.

Yuuuuup. This thread is super validating. We put the downpayment on the venue, bought the ring over two months ago, and he asked my parents over 4 months ago. The ring is in the apartment and he has until Christmas. 

I cannot wait to be engaged to this man, he’s incredible, but he is really driving me nuts with all the waiting!

Start wedding planning. It will take your mind off it for a little bit. Stay away from ring porn though. Lol!

Ugh…. last night we went to a nice restaurant downtown for dessert and drinks. No proposal for me, but table next to us proposed while we were wrapping up. It was fun to watch. 🙂

Completely relatable. Knowing that he already had the ring made me a mess for weeks. But he held his ground and surprised me, it was worth the wait.

fancyllama :  people always say that it was worth the wait. But I never really understand. I think any time he proposes, however he does it, it’s a good thing. If he hadn’t waited but had proposed weeks earlier, wouldn’t it have been just as wonderful?

Or was it because he had a wonderful plan that could only have happened later?

My FH literally called me “velocigirlfriend” in the months leading up to his proposal because I was such a loon, and I would latch onto every little thing and think it was a slip-up of his.  So yes, lol.  You’re not alone.  Just try to relax and let him have his moment (as impossible as that seems).

hickoryhills :  velocigirlfriend, lmao. Love it. 🙂

 For fun…

Can I have my moment tonight where I withhold bfs dinner so I can then “surprise” him with it at some point tonight? Preferably when he’s alsleep so he really won’t expect it.

i want dinner to be special and memorable you know? I mean, I’d feed him dinner sooner if he’d just stop asking me about it. It’s just so much pressure. I don’t know why he’d care so much… he knows I’d feed him eventually. He even got to pick dinner out! So the only way I can surprise him is by when he gets it. But I’ll definitely be making him smell it cooking and faking him out so he thinks I’m going to feed him sooner. So much fun!

I think my boyfriend got the ring a couple weeks ago and the wait is KILLING me. He tells me to be patient, but he knows that’s the one thing I never am haha
