Yes! I am in your boat too! We want a September wedding next year, but hadn’t talked about marriage for awhile and then the other day he was like we will have kids before 30 and I reminded him he was 27 in a couple weeks so he better get on it. I think he is saving right now. Our anniversary is on Thanksgiving so maybe it will be then!

I’m waiting till the end of the year.  My SO has told me it will be between now and December, but wants me to be surprised on the day ๐Ÿ™‚  He’s picked a ring but hasn’t bought it yet.  I think it will be sometime in November or December as we’re moving in together at the end of October and I know he doesn’t want people to jump to the conclusion that he’s proposed ‘just’ so that we can move in together (we’re not religious, but my immediate family is).  He’s also worrying himself over how much the ring’s going to cost (wants to buy me something nice, but we’re both in our 30s and trying hard to save up to buy a house and start a family too, he knows I’ll be over the moon with whatever he gives me), how to propose and asking my dad for his blessing (we also don’t really believe in him asking my dad for his permission as I’m not ‘property’ and it’s my decision, but I’m the only daughter, am very close to my dad and I know it would make him happy, so SO is going to ask for his blessing instead).  So excited and happy to know it’s going to be in a matter of months! ๐Ÿ™‚

So The SO let me know about some things these last few days. With our friends wedding coming up we was lamenting about how expensive everything is going to lately, the bachelor party, wedding, my birthday and our anniversary. He knows what I want is a ring so I said kinda dejectedly (I was having a bad day to begin with) that I didn’t care what I got. I really didn’t want anything anyway (except a ring). He called BS and completed our friends who skipped the engagement and just planned the wedding. I said that was good for them because they were ready for marriage. I asked him if he felt that once you get engaged you should get married quickly. Just to see what his opinion was on it before spearing into what my thoughts were. PROCEED WITH CAUTION!  He dodged around it so it made me think he is on the same page as me and wants to wait a bit before we walk down the isle.

I dropped the subject and changed it to talking about what else was putting me in a bad mood, since he asked what was up. We changed the subject and he got onto how he is going to be asking for a raise if his inspection goes well. And he is in line for a bonus at the end of the year (an estimated $1,400 – 2G, which all of my dream rings are either within or below that range.) and he said about buying rings then. I tried to deflect. I said “I really don’t care. It’s whatever you want.” Again he called BS. I told him that I want him to do it because he wants to. Not to shut me up. He said “That’s why the man does it. To shut the girl up & keep her happy.” – “is that the only reason?” I asked. – “And because of love” he later added.

I dropped it and was in a much better mood the rest of the day.

So if not END END END of next year (Maybe a New Years Eve proposal!) then hopefully/Defiantly before V-Day 2013.

*Fingers cross for all the BEES*

I’m in the end-of-year club as well. SO told me last new years that his resolution for this year was to not be a boyfriend anymore. We just celebrated our 5 year anniversary yesterday! He has told me more recently that he wants to order the ring by my birthday (end of August), and that he has 7 dates picked out to propose on. While I don’t think he’ll wait until closer to Christmas, I don’t think it will happen sooner than November. I guess we’ll see! Until then, I am happily waiting until 12/31/12, so many great things to look forward to!

I am in the same boat!! SO hinted a couple days ago that it will be sometime around Sept/Oct which seems so far away since I feel like I’ve been on my toes waiting the past many months but I know it will go by fast and I CAN’T WAIT!

Hold tight, bees…it’s coming!!!

Add me to the list.

We were just away on vacation and had a little chat about this very subject. It was supposed to come sooner, but after a nasty car accident and a lot of money (aka THE money) spent on fixing the vehicle instead, I didn’t know when he’d feel comfortable starting to save up again.

When we were talking and I said I didn’t care about an expensive ring, I just didn’t want to wait too long, he said “What’s too long? I’ve told you my timeline, haven’t I? I was talking about this with Billy last week” (his bandmate).

My jaw dropped. He told Billy about his plans and forgot to tell ME? ๐Ÿ˜› haha…he’s such a dork. Anyway, by the end of the year is the plan. Which is exciting, but even more than that, a relief.

Yes I am in the same boat!  December 22nd is our 3 year anniversary and I’m thinking it will be around then.  It’s so close and yet so far away at the same time!

@Lulume:  I guess I will be in the 3rd or 4th.

I know he has more than enough saved, but he’s only really just started looking. I only recently saw him looking at sites online. He hasn’t gone in store yet. He wanted to go together, but never invites me to go. Go figure!

My love knows already how he plans to propose, date, even the hour down.  But no matter what I do he won’t budge.  He did confirm it will take place before the end of the year.

So now we wait…
