- Wedding: May 2015
I’m so emotional right now, I’ll just break it down
SO and I have been together for 7 years this last Feb. (Valentines Day Anniversary.)
Bought the ring in December of last year and brought it home.
It’s still upstairs where we first put it, in the sock drawer. I got to keep the insurance / certificate card and picture though, how exciting?!
My good friend at work just announced today that she is 15 weeks pregnant.
I immediately started to cry. I was happy for her, but I was so heartbroken that my SO hasn’t proposed, that we’re not on our way there as well.
(Oh god I’m starting up again…)
He keeps saying that the proposal is coming this year, but we’ve had the ring since last year.
Granted I did say to wait until this year, as there were like 15 engagements last year among our friends and to be honest, I didn’t want to share our moment with everyone else’s.
It’s now 2014 and our 7 year anniversary was on the 14th of Feb and still no proposal.
I just feel like I’m being left behind in life, like everyone else is on the right track and I can’t seem to get in line. I’m just stuck.
I want him to propose, but I feel like waiting on the proposal will delay our wedding plans for next year. (I told him he has 2 years to make me his wife, this was in mid last year. It’s now 2014 and I’m still technically single.
I’m losing my sh*t here, becuase I don’t want to try to have a baby after I’m 35, I’ll be 30 next week. And what if we want more than one after the first? It kind of screws things up.
I think we’ve now waited to long. I don’t see why he’s waiting so long. He doesn’t have to ask anyone for my hand or anything, we’ve been together 7 years, even my mother keeps asking when she’ll get grandkids.
Help people. I need your opinions and advise here. I know people are having the same feelings, but how do you handle them?
