briyoncexo :  I dont know how I even got to the point where I want it!  I’ve been married before, and NEVER wanted to get married again, didn’t want another kid either, and the I met him and everythin changed, it’s the most bizarre thing I’ve ever know, and we literally agreed on out third date that we were getting married, I was walking down the aisle to the terminator theme lolol everyone was shocked when I cam out with I’m marryin that one, but as soon as they see us together it’s like yep….ok then lol, people assume we’ve been together forever, not just under 12 months, and the amount of times i get asked whens the big day, or when are you guys moving in together is unreal, seriously I knew he was the one when i got locked in a cemetery on accident with him!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Honestly every holiday that passes by and I don’t get a proposal, I’m a little sad. But at this point, so many of those have gone by and I know that either I’m going to be engaged or single within the next five months (due to past talks and timeline coming up). SO and I have been together 7.5 yrs so he’s had a fair shake. Saw this yesterday and thought it was funny. 

I have no issue with having it be on a more unique day when everyone else ISN’T doing it, I just wish it was sooner than later!

YES x1000. It sucks to see all of the engagements pop up in my Facebook news feed, and see all the ads, and get bugged by relatives as to why I’m still not married. Just a rough time overall.

DancinDarlin :  I’m sorry to hear that. I’ve seen you around the Waiting Board (your avatar is fantastic, I’m a huge fan of the Little Mermaid), and have always wanted to know more about your backstory.

Have you guys gone ring shopping?

blissfulheart :  Thank you! We’ve not gone ring shopping. I know a lot of bees don’t see the point and I agree it’s tough to keep it after a certain amount of time, but he and I still value the element of surprise! I don’t want to know when he gets the ring, and I don’t actually want to pick out my exact ring. Rather, I’ve given him the link to my pinterest with different rings I’ve pinned to cue him into styles I like. But I’ll let him pick the actual ring. smile  He and I started dating when 17 and 19, so it makes sense for us to have a longer relationship than others before getting married, but at this point I would say he’s dragging his feet a bit. tongue-out

I was actually surprised how few engagements happened over Christmas on my social media this year. It’s my first year as a waiting bee so I had prepared myself for the worst. Still, there’s always new year ๐Ÿ˜‚

For me it made me crazy last last holiday. We weren’t looking for rings and it seemed like people who were dating for a short amount of time we’re getting engaged. 

However, he saved up for the stone in the fall and we went to pick it up together and just last week he took me to go get it set…

My little sister got engaged in New Years (very happy for her!!!) and all the other engagements over the holiday didn’t phase me. I think knowing the ring is literally in the works helps a lot for me.

OMG so much yes.

Proposal season is driving me extra crazy because my SO had told me he planned to buy my ring during a sale that ended January 1st (not sure if he actually did or not but he said he was going to). Then we were watching hockey one night and every other commercial was for engagement rings, and he made a joke asking if I paid for these commercials lol, and I said no, it’s just engagement season starting (it was the day before American Thanksgiving).

He had no idea that was a thing, and then said he didn’t want to get engaged when everyone else does and that he would wait until at least March because of that, but then made a comment about how at least now if he asks me before then I will be surprised and not expecting it…so basically I am clueless on the when and keep thinking it will be any day now but it could also be months away! AAAAHHH! lol. 

Short answer if you didn’t catch it, yes, I am more crazy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas and New Years were rough. 14 engagements on my Facebook that week! I’m sure valentine’s weekend won’t be any easier.

becks90 :  hahaha yes! I also told my boyfriend I’ll flat out say no if he asks me on valentine’s day my ex husband asked around that date. He says he won’t do it around any holiday because he wants to make the day he does propose special on its own. It still sucks seeing everyone else we know getting engaged though.
