@lolaswann:  Bravo! Great article :] This is exactly why FH and I have discussed it extensively and plan on picking out my ring together *gasp* because it just makes sense to us as two equals. I have always hated how men “have all the power” by having a lifetime to decide if they should ask a woman when really it is an agreement between two parties.

“I am not a coy, blushing girl waiting for my over-the-top surprise proposal. I’m ballsy and strong and independent. He loves me because I’m opinionated, so why would I hide my opinions about our future?” love!

I love this artical. Read it a couple months ago. Honestly kept me from feeling a whole bunch of negative words.

This is my go-to site when I start to get goofy about waiting. Also, we’ve had friends and family make plenty of comments, from the mild ones to ones that sent our heads spinning, like a good friend of his telling me to tell him to buy me a ring. Mr. Ladyhelen doesn’t need the pressure.

Wonderful read. I’ve been with my SO for quite sometime. It has reached the point where I honestly am coy about tell the world how long we’ve been together because I get the “I-feel-so-sorry-he-hasn’t-proposed-to-you” face. And holidays with family doesn’t make it any better either. I got grilled as soon as we walked into his family’s home for dinner. I just tried to shift the akwardness onto him: Usually, I start by listing how his siblings recently have been married and we didn’t want it to be too close and then try to redirect the conversation.

The article is such a fresh breathe of air, but I must admit that others insecurities/judgements/expectations make me unnecesarily anxious. I then start thinking that I’m weird for not seeing it their way and for not being totally consumed by not being engaged yet. *le sigh*
