Were you guys having a particularly bad fight? It’s only January 8, I think you should chill. My ring has been on layaway for a couple months, but I was well aware of how long it would take to pay it off. Dont get me wrong, I get really excited sometimes and super giddy with anticipation, but you seem to have a lot more anxiety about the whole thing. Have you guys discussed a timeline for paying off the ring?

He has to plan the proposal dont get too excited!! 

I thought of something this morning.  As anxious as i am, i can wait a bit.  Why? Because once he proposes…thats is. I will never get to look forward and dream about it again. And i know he wants it to be perfect so if he needs the time to plan, i can give it to him.  Dont you want the perfect propsal?

Also i thought about how its the beginning of the end….of the wedding planning!! HAha Once its over thats it! You dont get another proposal or wedding.  So waiting and making sure its everything you want is worth the wait!

I think there’s natural “stages” in the whole waiting game.  Like you, I went nuts after SO and I found THE RING.  I overanalyzed every move SO made, panicked and drove my GFs crazy, it was not a pretty sight.  At one point, I decided I couldn’t wait anymore and just wanted to leave SO.  Eventually, you come to accept the waiting.  I’m still lucky to be with the man I love, so I focus on that.  That’s not to say I don’t slip off the wagon.  I do.  I am just careful how SO is involved when I get that way.  It’s all a process, but it’s worth it in the end.  Goodluck!

@futuremrsparsons: I completely understand where you are coming from. I don’t think you are crazy. Like all the other ladies here agree, apparently there are stages of ‘waiting.’ I was really upset that I didn’t get a proposal when I highly expected it aroung the holidays, you can read my post too: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/how-long-more-to-wait

I am still away from SO right now and using this time to reflect on my relationship. I am not calling him at all and answering only a few of his calls. He’s already freaked out that ‘I am beginning to forget about him.’ I think, with regard to my specific situation (e.g. he needs to finalize his divorce etc.), the distance between us may speed up his moves or vice versa. Whatever happens, I am ready to move on at this point, and I know that it’s not the end of the world if he never proposes. Well, at least, this is the stage I am at right now. I don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow or next week…
