@cherriesandcream:  I don’t really have any good advice. Just the standard stuff. I’ve been with my SO for just over 3 years as well, and only recently did I get something besides “soon” and even that is a wide range of six months…

Trust me I totally understand. I’ve come to hate hearing the word “soon”.

I wish I could hear the word “soon” Frown

But I do understand that after a while the same answers become annoying especially when there are no actions. 

My SO’s family and friends are very pushy. They love to ask him “What are you waiting for?”, I recently participated in some athletic activities his family was a part of and they kept nudging him saying that he is looking good (meaning that I am a good catch), or even “It’s been a long time since we’ve eaten wedding cake (he usually direct them to a baker). Even in church a close friend said that our little family (we have 2 bambinos) is shaping up and they don’t know what is taking my SO so long. 

He usually comes up with a smart, snazzy answer then laugh it off. They love to joke about how intently I watch him to see his response and reaction.

I’m in the same boat. He keeps telling me soon. Now I have to back off because he just got laid off. ๐Ÿ™ He did say though that the next big purchase will be my ring … but im an impatient girl. I’m used to getting what I want when I want it because I’ve always gotten myself what I wanted … Now that we’re together it’s more on his pace. lol. Sometimes I think being too independent gave me a flaw.
