I don’t have any advice for you, but I do sympathise – waiting sucks. While I was waiting, I over analysed every little thing he said and did. Heck, I didn’t even wear track pants for a few months just in case he was going to propose that day and I looked like a dag!

Trust me, if your man is anything like mine, after he proposes and you tell him how you were going mental the whole time, he will be completely clueless.

Anyway – I hope this time is it though! Good luck!

I don’t know. That really could mean anything. Hopefully it works out that way but don’t get your hopes up.

I was “waiting” for years before getting engaged. Fiance would say things all the time that made me think that it was going to happen and every time it didn’t, I was so disappointed. The best advice that I can to those waiting is to not dwell on the little statements that are made. If you get your hopes up and it doesn’t happen, you’ll just feel crappier.

I’m sorry if I’m making you repeat yourself, I haven’t read all your posts, but how long have you been together? I think that could really mean anything, it could mean dinner, a movie, anything! Do you think he would really propose to you if he hasn’t met your mom yet? Cuz I know my family would be pissed if I got engaged and they hadn’t met my SO yet.

That’s so exciting! It could be right around the corner, but maybe he is waiting to do it when you least expect it! My Fiance was so frustrated with me when I was waiting. I knew it was coming soon, and he badly wanted to surprise me but I was waiting for it every singel day and in turn, kind of ruined the surprise factor.

Yes, waiting really does stink.  I knew that Fiance was going to be proposing at some point during the summer, and I was away at a job for most of it.  He came to visit twice and both times EVERYONE would give their opinions and scenarios about how he was going to propose.  And he didn’t.  Honestly, I had let my friends set me up for constant dissapointment and anxiousness.  He ended up proposing a couple weeks after I got home, and it really was perfect, and it happened in a way I didn’t expect.  So, just enjoy life, don’t stress, and don’t try to over analyze guys.  You’ll be much happier for it and when it happens you’ll be the giddiest girl 🙂

@MissHobbit:

Yeah I was going to say the same thing. My bf planned a surprise for me tomorrow and I got all excited but then he mentioned it was for valentines day. I know it’s not a proposal. Which isn’t to say yours isn’t but maybe just think of it as a regular date and then you won’t be disappointed if it doesn’t happen.
