Just needed to vent a little and since you bees all understand. I’ve officially been “waiting” for 4 months since my SO got my ring. I’ve been resolved until recently to let him do his thing.
Anyway, just starting to get a little down about the whole thing, given that 1. tomorrow is my birthday with the day after being New Years and no engagement is in sight 2. SO and I were suppose to leave for a weekend away tomorrow and now he has to work (I know he can’t help this, but still) and 3. after this weekend will start the worst time at work for me working LONG LONG hours and I won’t even have planning a wedding to look forward to.
I’m ususally a “see the glass as half full” optimistic type person, but I’m having a hard time being positive right now. Sigh.

@missbumblebee: Cheer up and relax. Everything will happen in due time. I mean, who knows…with your birthday and NYE coming up he may be waiting to pop the question then. Keep in mind that Valentines Day is coming up soon too.
My Fiance and I picked out the ring together and he waited several months to pop the question. He wanted to surprise me and for it to be extra special. It was and I wouldn’t trade that moment for anything. Just relax sweetie. Your time is a’coming 🙂

@missbumblebee: I’m sure that is diasappointing, but at least you know he has a ring for you…it’s just finding the right time to do it! I bet he will have something special planned for the two of you to make up for not being able to go out of town. The proposal will probably come when you least expect it. 🙂

I feel your pain! I’ve been waiting since July, and around August SO and I started seriously talking about engagements, I was so certain it would happen in October for our anniversary, it didn’t, then I was getting excited for my Birthday (3 weeks ago) and then he told me that we definitely weren’t getting engaged any time soon because we don’t make enough money to support ourselves. Now he’s got something up his sleeve for NYD but I think that’s just showing me the design of the ring he eventually wants to get. Try to have a Happy Birthday tomorrow anyway and enjoy 🙂 Someday your proposal will come 🙂
