Hello bees! I noticed a few of you have mentioned you are expecting a proposal by the end of 2011. I am optimistically hoping that I will be engaged by the end of the year as well. My SO has promised I won’t have to wait “too much longer”…
We have are visiting his sister’s family next month, and we will spend Christmas at his parents’ house. This will be my first time meeting his family as they live on the west coast, though he’s met mine several times. I can tell that he’s really looking forward to introducing me to his family, so I think it could happen around that time.
Who else is waiting for an end of the year proposal? Let’s do this together. Today’s almost over, so starting tomorrow we have 83 days until 2012. That’s not that long, right?

Me! YAY! We actually had another wedding talk tonight on the way home. Totally convinced he had the ring this weekend in his pocket but couldn’t find the right time! Oh well, he’s told me more than once I’l be engaged before Christmas. Here’s hoping he sticks to that!

Count me in! I’ll be your waiting buddy.. I’m getting antsy as we approach Thanksgiving, because I really don’t want to face another year of “Why aren’t you engaged yet?” with the family. This is our 5th Thanksgiving together, so I’m determined not to face those questions. January 1st is my mental deadline, but I don’t feel right pushing that date on him, nor do I know what I’ll do if it gets here and we’re not engaged yet! One day at a time…

@Macintosh: I was totally thinking of starting this thread 🙂 Great idea!
At one stage SO said before Christmas Eve but now I have him down to before 9th December. I know that sounds kinda silly and specific but that is just a specific date in our schedules that we are working towards professionally.
SO EXCITED!! Sending good engagement vibes everyone’s way 🙂

Love this thread! Mr.C has told me to expect a NYE proposal, but my fingers are crossed for sooner. Here’s to hoping that all our waits are shorter than we think! 🙂

My guy was kinda vague about the “when.” It’s either early next year or it’ll be before the years end. Just a sneaking suspicion. Course, I thought it would be September as well. 🙂

I’m in the same boat as all of you! He has even let it slip that he has the ring, and that he spent quite a long time picking it out because he had to “go over all of the options”! I can’t wait 🙂 🙂 :).

I’m hoping to get one by the end of the year too!
We’ve actually begun to plan the wedding, so I know it will be coming as soon as he can get it all together.
But ugh, 83 days???

Yay! I’m so glad you gals are on board. Just so we don’t have to literally count every day, let’s check in once a week or so. I’m going to try not to bring it up to my SO for the next week. 1 day down, 82 to go!

My SO has mentioned Winter a few times, so I’m thinking it’ll happen maybe around Christmas? I have no idea!
I have to remind myself not to mention it as well! It’s so hard not to, though!

At the start of this year, he promised we would be engaged sometime this year. But I am not 100% convinced it will happen anymore 🙁 That said, come Jan 1st 2012 if I am not engaged I may be pretty upset!!

count me in too 🙂 based on comments my SO has made and a big trip we have coming up on my birthday/our anniversary i think i could be due for a ring by the end of 2011… unless everyone else’s wedding harassing has changed his mind 🙁
