I have discussed it with him and I was in graduate school last year  and now that I have graduated, I told him that my goal was a fulltime job by christmas. He agreed that once I get fulltime healthcare job, then ๐Ÿ’. I have had 5 interviews with a big healthcare corporation where I live, so hopefully I’ll get a job offer soon. ๐Ÿ˜

vanessa9090 :  ahh thanks. Yeah I am familiar, have had some close friends and family who have had to try REAL hard to conceive. Fertility is a finicky thing!

Hi bees, I am also in the waiting phase. My SO and I will have been together 4 years at the end of march. We have been living together 2 years this March as well. We have a 4 month old baby girl that we just adore. He works in the school district and we live about 6 hours away from our families and are planning to get engaged “soon” and then elope when we visit family at Christmas time. The ring has been picked out, but it will need sized and we are exploring setting options. The anticipation is killing me!!!

I feel your pain.  Our 6 year anniversary was two days ago and no proposal.  We’re both 27, although I’ll be 28 in a month and we’ve been living together for two years now.  We even own the apartment we live in together.

I’ve tried telling him how much it hurts tha I have been ready for a proposal for 2.5 years now and he’s still not ready but he just doesn’t get it.

21 here, been together for over 7 years and have lived together for 2.
I know he want’s marriage because he talks about it, but it’s alot more important to me than it is to him.
I think in his mind we would just get married once we decided to have kids – but I want a couple of years of childfree marriage.

We recently discussed this and he’s been emailing a jeweller… so hopefully by the end of this year!

Hi everyone! I’m 28 and I have been with my boyfriend for 9.5 years! I only recently decided/communicated I was ready for marriage about 6 months ago, but I feel like I’ve been subconsciously ready for a year or two. We picked the ring and both decided to get married next summer…he says the proposal will happen before Halloween, we will see! I hate waiting! lol
