My boyfriend and I have been together for nearly 4 years and we have a 6 month old daughter.
Last November I told my boyfriend I needed to see a bigger commitment from him, rather than just living together and ‘playing house’ like we are already married. We would both like to have more kids, but want to at the very least be engaged first!
So we agreed he would have until november to propose and left it at that.
But I can’t wait that long.
I’m insanely jealous of other people getting engaged and married. I can’t wait another year!
I feel awful whenever I hear of someone I went to school with getting engaged when they’ve been together for barely a year. I feel like it’s never going to happen, I’m beginning to hate the person I am becoming because of this.
So I lost it at my boyfriend today, broke down crying.
When he asked me what was wrong I told him I couldn’t put a deadline on him asking me to marry him and that I am so sorry for being so bitter towards others getting married. I tried to explain to him that I can’t wait that long, because you never know if you’ll have tomorrow.
He gave me a big hug and said, “You’ll have your ring before June, I promise.” Gave me a kiss and laughed at me for being such a crazy wreck.
God, I wish I was a patient person, but I’m not.

Its hard to wait. Trust me I know!
But you have an end in sight, and it will be sooner than you thought! And once you can yell from the rooftops you’re engaged, you won’t remember all the dreaded waiting. Or so I’m told by the engaged and married bees. XD
You always have here to vent or whine or talk it out though. Lord knows I am in here whining every other week and no one has kicked me out yet!

@HunterJune: I too am extremely impatient and I TOO was given a June 2014 deadline. So you are definitely not alone. You have another impatient, crazy wreck sitting on the boat right next to you.

@southsun: haha I totally remember the waiting! I was a waiting bee on here for 1 year before the proposal on our 6th anniversary……so brutal.
OP, I’m happy your SO narrowed it down for you. I was feeling just like you were about others getting engaged/married around me, but just remember your time is SOOOOO close!!!! The last few months of my waiting, I started looking at wedding venues and things and just pretended I was engaged (I knew it would happen at some point!)
