longatlast :  Congrats in advance! I haven’t been able to keep it a secret. I think it’s happening on the 22nd. Super exciting!

Congratulations!! I’m excited for you.

I would honestly love to be engaged before the New Year but I don’t think it’s going to happen, especially seeing as how the ring isn’t even ready yet. Finding a stone and designing the ring together has been a process – and possibly a bit longer than some as we’re using a small, local mom and pop store as opposed to going online as so many are doing now. (Which I’m sure would be so much faster.)

I too am waiting for a proposal before the end of this year and hopeful it will happen.

longatlast : CONGRATS! Very exciting but I feel your pain!

I’m “patiently” waiting for mine… The ring should ship this week! And I’ve asked that the proposal happens before Christmas as I want to surprise our families when we go home.

Based on comments and timelines from SO… it has to be before end of year. But I also have a birthday this week to throw in the mix.

He promised by end of year so…

My boyfriend and I have been together 7 Years. We started dating our senior year of high school and haven’t had any rush to get married, but have been talking about it a lot lately. He said we would be engaged before February and I’m hoping it’s before the new year. I’m 95% sure he bought a ring already and it’s killing me to wait! We did look at rings together and found a setting we really like online from brilliant earth that I’m in love with 😍 the wait sucks and I am not one for patience, but I’m trying haha

I’m casually awaiting the end of the year as my deadline. Lol . Based on his screwing up his last 3 attempts I think.we’re going to have a very informal proposal “agreement”.

My proposal window opens on our 2 year anniversary, 12/29.  We’re each going to propose to eachother in 2019. I doubt he’ll go first, but you never know!  I’m planning on somehow waiting until his birthday on 4/11 to do mine.  It’s going to be hard to wait once the window opens.  We’re already fake proposing to eachother all the time with pop tabs, fruit tarts lol.  Then it’s all “it doesn’t count because it’s not in the window”.  It’s become a game.  He thinks I’ll do it the minute the window opens.  I’m going to be patient…or something.

longatlast :  Yes, I saw the ring. I basically am a control freak (not actually, but kind of LOL). He sent me photos and videos of the completed ring in our apartment. He was going to leave it by the bed (similar to how he gave me my promise ring), but I told him that curiosity would get the best of me and that I would try it on and I wouldn’t take the it off and that would be our engagement/proposal story.

Soooo, he nixed that real quick haha. 

I’m so glad to have someone else to freak out with!

I’m hoping to get officially engaged by end of year. Bf bought the ring in October and it was delivered right after Thanksgiving. 

He could do it at any point, but given constraints with work and my kids…. I’m hoping it’ll be this weekend. 

No secrets here… immediate family all know it’s coming. Just waiting on him to do the deed. But I’m trying not to be a pest about it and it’s super hard some days!

woofwoof1017 :  Exactly…. I’m so not chill about it. But I’m trying not to bore my best friend about it. 

Its nice to have a place like this where we can freak out with others in a similar situation.

bibliophilacticbee :  Absolutely. I have ZERO chill. My best friend got engaged and married in the time we’ve been talking about marriage (we’ve been together 4.5 years). So it’s hard to get all excited with her because she’s been through it and they got engaged after a year together.
