It’s so, so hard to not think about it. I know how that is a million times over!! UGH.

I would try your best to not say anything, it sounds like it’s impending regardless of the cruise! Don’t stress about it and just rest assured in the fact at least you know your man is sure about wanting to be engaged and you’re not on the fence about that. I see some posts on here that involve men that “aren’t ready for marriage” or “aren’t sure” and it breaks my heart :/

I’m hoping for a spring or summertime proposal and am just trying to sit back…. and wait….. I’ve done some “online” planning, etc in my head so it curbs the urge to talk about it to him and gives me something to focus on, haha.

@pisces36: Heck yeah!! Shopping for bathing suits is SO fun 😀

And you are such a lucky girl being able to do that! I’d kill to go on a cruise right now. 😉

We have inches and inches of snow on the ground and I am so beyond ready for springtime.

But, back to the waiting… yeah. There’s no way around it, it totally sucks. Especially when there’s so much anticipation. I try to see it from his point of view.. that he wants it to be so special and is just waiting for the “right” time. I imagine it puts a lot of stress on the men to make it perfect and everything us ladies could want. But in my head, I’m thinking… I seriously wouldn’t freaking care if you did it while we were sitting on the couch, lol.

I am cheering for you to get the ring before the cruise, I can only imagine how AMAZING that would be!

So just know I’m in the exact same boat as you, definitely keep us updated!!

If it were me I’d hope for a proposal on the cruise, ’cause I think that’s super romantic. But for your sake I hope it comes before then!

  • Wedding: July 2012

I ended up having “the talk” with my Boyfriend or Best Friend now Fiance and it turned out OK. We were in a situation where we’d spoken several times about getting married and he had told me that he was going to ask but hadn’t indicated when. So in September or so he started dropping hints, asking my ring size and sending cryptic text messages to my friends which of course sent me into wedding planning mode. I started getting worried about how much time we’d have between the engagement and the wedding, if I’d have enough time to get everything ready, if we were going to end up with a super short or a too long engagement, if we could have it before I finished grad school… I turned myself into a huge ball of nerves and it finally got so bad that I was having trouble sleeping I was so anxious. 

I had to sit him down and tell him that I didn’t want to rush him but I needed him to give me an idea of when he was going to ask or to stop dropping hints. To his credit he took this in stride (sign that we’re meant to be, all he cared about was that I wasn’t feeling well) and informed me that he was planning to ask in Jan, at our 3 year anniversary. While in the end I’m glad we discussed it, I felt like an a** for days because I thought I was putting pressure on him or that I’d ruined the proposal, but at least I was sleeping

Then he surprised me in November so we both got our way!
