becks90 :  I’m also not a holiday proposal person (we’re getting engaged sometime between January and June 2017), but it seems like there are heightened emotions everywhere! 

I’m just kind of taking it in – I’m happy for everyone getting engaged now, and I’m excited to have my own moment in the future ๐Ÿ™‚

“Proposal season” made me crazy when I was a waiting Bee- but in all fairness I was already half-way to batshit anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

Omg yes!! I am trying to stay strong over here!! Its not easy! Over the weekend another couple my SO and I are friends with got engaged. Im expecting ours to be sometime early next year, but seeing all of the save the dates and engagement announcements on social media is driving me mad! ๐Ÿ™ Ive been having my meltdown moments a little too often lately :(. This makes 4 weddings we are attending next year already!

haha I wouldn’t say it’s driving me crazy because luckily I know the fairly specific timeline SO’s operating on. I will say, though, that I never really noticed or cared much about proposal news on social media before now. It’s like… I hadn’t yet met the person I wanted to marry, so it was completely off my radar. It’s been an odd experience for me to suddenly see a proposal notice and feel so much emotion about it! I get so ridiculously happy about EACH one!

Don’t get me wrong I’m happy for people but am also jealous as f**k now have said it,

I’m not normally a envious person, I have no reason to be either, in the scheme of things im lucky that I’m even a waiting bee considering we are only a year together, and I know it won’t be at Christmas as he has a “plan” should be next year sometime, waiting is driving me mad as it is, without the added thing of It being engagement season, I don’t even think he knows it’s engagement season, lol he just thinks it’s Christmas ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Plus it doesn’t help my cousin just got engaged at disney and now my nan won’t stop banging on about it ๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ˜ช๐Ÿ˜ช

The non stop ring /engagement themed commercials on tv are getting old. This really is engagement season. I never noticed until this year now that I’m expecting a proposal of my own in the near future. My sister just told me that 4 of her college friends got engaged yesterday. FOUR! In one day…

I was talking to my best friend about this on Saturday. After a few weeks of torture and teasing I found my E-Ring by accident and have only told her. We were deliberating whether my SO would propose at Christmas but I have specifically said to him that I would want it to just be us two together when he decides to pop the questions and my entire family are staying with us for Christmas so I think it is unlikely. I can’t help but get a little envious though when I see all these engagements on Social media. I have told myself that it would be better if it wasn’t in the holiday season because itย means the fuss will be over and we can celebrate it as something seperate to the holiday excitement. I am hoping it will be a January proposal, New Year maybe or when we go to Belgium for his birthday. That’s not to say if he does propose at Christmas I wouldn’t accept! I’ve definitely lost a considerable amount of sanity since we started looking for rings last year! He told me that he has got me a big present but that he doesn’t think Christmas is the right time (presumably he remembered what I said about us being alone), so at least I know we are on the same page and I know it’s coming!ย Hope everyone else is holding up!

becks90 :  You know I never noticed it was actually proposal season until I joined the bee. It’s funny because my husband asked me on Dec 24th 2014. I wasn’t expecting it, we hadn’t spoken about rings or marriage all that often. We had talked about wanting to get married eventually, but not enough for him to actually hand me a box that had my ring in it.

I think the best way to look at it is that everyone will reach the milestone at a different time. Everyone who gets engaged has different relationships, they’ve been together different amounts of time and everyone’s financial situation is different. I can never understand the waiting craze because I never experienced it. I can’t say I envy you bee’s either; but the only confident advice I can give is that when you’re least expecting it is when it happens lol.

Yes!ย  Me and my OH have been together for 5 years and are constantly being bombarded with the usual “you next” etc so Christmas just makes this 100x times more irritating!

We’re getting engaged in 2017 (just bought a house, previously living with parents to save so not been the right time)ย so i’m a happy waiting bee at the moment but sometimes I just want to tell everyone to shut up but that’s not very festive haha

I’m 100% sure it won’t be for awhile, but I feel so much better knowing it is going to be sometime in 2017. Still, watching all my friends get engaged/married makes me feel a little crazy for sure! Especially my best friend, who got engaged recently. I know I shouldn’t compare relationships but that stung a lot more than I was expecting once the excitement wore off ๐Ÿ™

becks90 :  My dream proposal would be at Disney too! As of yet though, haven’t been there with the Boyfriend or Best Friend, and no plans yet (that I know of). Who knows, maybe he’ll surprise you ๐Ÿ˜›

Oh my god so happy I am not the only one!! I’m going nut thinking about it. My boyfriend and I have been together 6 years and we talk about getting married a lot yet I just need him to propose. All of 2016 I have been thinking ooo maybe today and then it doesn’t happen. So this Christmas it’s just me and him together for the entire thing because I live far away from my family this year and he said somethign the other day that now means it’s definitely not going to happen. I can’t help but feel a bit sad… am I stupid for feeling that way?
