That sounds exciting! Fingers crossed for you. I am hoping it will happen for me sometime between now and mid- October. I have been with my Boyfriend or Best Friend for 5.5 yrs and it is about time for me too! He wants to move in together and he knows I will no do so as a GF!

Our three year anniversarof is on the 27th, while we’re on vacation.  I think it’s stilL a 50/50 chance for me.  Tempted to sneak through his luggage while we’re there, is that bad?

Possibly.  We’re actively planning a wedding at the moment but he still wants to do a proposal with a ring.  He called me last week from vacation to ask what kind of ring I wanted and what size I was.  I don’t know if he bought it then or not.  I get the idea from talking to him later that he got a bit of an education in diamonds that afternoon (which surprises me since he was married before.  I guess she picked out her own ring), so he might have had information overload.  He got home this afternoon and will be home when I get hom in about an hour!!!  I can’t wait.  If he does have the ring he’ll probably do it either tonite or this weekend when we go to a fun camping event.  A fun bit of trivia.  It was at this same event last year that we first started talking about getting married.  That’s what led to me finding WB.

@ms.jellen:  Congratulations!

I’m getting all kinds of crazy nervous that it is going to happen very soon. My SO and I are leaving tomorrow morning on a two day biking, two day camping, one day biking adventure! We love to bike together, it’s one of our biggest passions. The whole trip is around 200 miles.

My SO bought me a new bike a couple of weeks ago and has been replacing parts and making it perfect for me for the ride. Part of me was a tinge upset that he was spending money on a bike when I hadn’t gotten a ring yet ๐Ÿ™‚

In my mind this trip would be the perfect time to propose, and he has told me that it will happen by the end of this month. Although I don’t know if he has the ring yet and know that he has been waiting on it.

Now I’m rambling… But I’m so excited but nervous at the same time that he won’t propose! I’m trying not to get my hopes up and plan on just enjoying the trip. Maybe I’ll create some sort of mantra that I’ll repeat to myself if I freak out too much… Love the trees. Love the sky. Don’t you fret, love your guy.

Hi girls! I’m a newbie In waiting too! My SO is going to propose in the next two weeks, How  I found out is a long story) We’ve been dating for 8 years!! I’m excited, scared and find myself constantly looking over my shoulder waiting for the proposal. driving me crazy!!! Can’t concentrate at work.  Is anyone else amazed at the patience men have??? I made the mistake of telling my brother’s Girlfriend about our engagement and she is trying to upstage me by dragging my brother to jewelry stores.   Oh no she didn’t this is going to be my time to shine!! Opinions please!!

Well I let my hopes get raised a little since we have some little weekend trips coming up – but I need to face reality that it isn’t happening soon :/  My SO has been working around the clock and so I know he hasn’t had time to go get a ring.  I must be hormonal since this disappointment cycle is hitting me harder than usual.  Time for a wine pity party tonight!

August 30th, at sunset on a beach in Key Largo, FL.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute.  He worked with a jeweler to custom design a ring.  I pretty much knew when we left for vacation it was going to happen but as the week went along I convinced myself it wasn’t going to happen and then I heard him talking to his mother and his phone was really loud, I heard her say “did you give her the ring yet.” and he replied “no but very soon”.  My heart stopped.

After dinner out, he barely ate which was a give away, he was determined to see sunset on our favorite beach.   Nothing really romantic, which would have made both of us uncomfortable, he told me to close my eyes and when I opened then there was a ring and he asked me to marry him.  I said yes and now the next stage of our crazy lives begins.  He’s tossing around the idea of getting married on that beach but we’re not in any hurry.
