LOL I’ve been here. I didn’t even know if my Fiance had a ring! We took a trip up north after I graduated, and I was so convinced that he was going to propose. We even walked out onto the dock at the lake we were on, and I was thinking how perfect it was going to be on the lake, under the gorgeous stars (the view up there is amazing)…nope. I fully admit that I started crying on the drive home because he hadn’t proposed. It didn’t propose for another almost six months!

I know exactly how you feel!  I have been doing this for the last year and it drives you crazy!!  The only coping mechanism I can suggest is just getting out there and make yourself happy, do things that you love and magically you’ll stop fixating on the engagement, which sounds like it is inevitable and when it comes you will be genuinely surprised.  I can’t even remember how many hundreds of times I thought he was going to propose, saw the ring in his pocket and went thorugh birthdays, christmases and special opccassions thinking that.  What I’ve found is never mentioning or talking about the ‘M’ word, even though it is buzzing around my head like a bee is actually making him feel safer, he is being more lovey-dovey and talking about marriage more frequently.  This kind of thinking is distructive. I find these boards helpful – just focus on your relationship and the proposal will be the cherry on top when the time is right, not when you want it to be.  Enjoy yourself and you will enjoy the actual proposal alot more!! all best xx

@Izzypig:  Oh you poor thing. That would drive me crazy! I just accidentally found out my SO has purchased an engagement ring, which will arrive within the month. A month that holds my birthday followed by our 2 year anniversary. I hope he doesn’t keep me waiting too long.

If you want to get engaged and you’ve talked about married can’t you just ask him?
