Awesome!  What a relief, some of them actually do “get it”.

Oh good glad that he’s talking to you about it!  Don’t stress too much we went to Hawaii in April and I just knew it would happen then.  It didn’t.  I threw a small fit on our hike to the waterfall.  You read that right!  He proposed 3 weeks later on Mother’s Day.  Wanted to do it when I least expected it.

Oh I remember those days, like coming back from our swoon-worthy vacation in the mexican riviera with ALLLLLL his family. Romantic location, family, perfect timing… i guess not. That feeling does suck!!! Chin up!

Sounds familiar to me too… We went on a cruise in June and all 3 other couples at our dinner table were on their honeymoon. I think the cruise line figured we were on our honeymoon too and thought they were doing everyone a favor by seating all these newlyweds together.

Yay! I think sometimes guys don’t process information the same way we do. Like, they need to sit on it and think alone for a while, whereas women are more likely to talk about what they’re thinking to anyone and everyone. So just because he hadn’t been talking about it doesn’t mean he wasn’t thinking about it!

I’m excited for you!!!

I have to say I’ve been there too.  We got engaged the past August … but we took a trip to Italy (Rome) in May?!! I for SURE thought it was going to happen there and I have to say I was pretty miffled (but tried not to show it) when it didn’t. Instead, it happened 3 months later at one of my favorite resturants in town. We did top of a “celebration” trip to Mexico with his parents that was pre-planned in September so I have to believe there was some method to the madness. 🙂

Hang in there! Honestly… the “waiting for the ring” when you know it’s just around the corner is a great time. All the exicting stuff is still ahead! And it’s super fun to look around to see which rings you like too!

Oh, I’ve been there and know how much it hurts and is disappointing.  We went on a trip in June and the entire time we were there the room safe was locked.  I kept waiting and waiting for him to propose. Nothing happened.  I spent the entire trip home pouting (which I am now rather ashamed of!) and went to work the next day to find out one of my co-workers had gotten engaged, which led to more disappointment.  It is way easier said than done, but I had to stop viewing every night out, trip, whatever as a potential proposal moment.  Even the morning he proposed when I had a what if he is going to propose moment I shoved it out of mind because I didn’t want to potentially ruin the day. 

It sounds like things will be happening for you, and all you can do is be patient.  Easy for me to say!  Wedding planning is a whole new level of craziness, so enjoy where you are today.
