Been a long time lurker, brand new poster..
Honestly just venting here, but any support/advice/whatever is appreciated!
Bf and I have been together almost 5 years, lived together for almost 4.. I’ve been very vocal about not reaching “5 year girlfriend status”. A trivial number I know, but it’s important to me that he be on the same page. If he wants to live his life unmarried, that’s totally fine and I wish him all the happiness, I just know that marriage is super important to me and my life goals. That 5 year anniversary is May 4 this year! Naturally, i’ve been getting antsy and last weekend he asked if I’d like to go and look at rings (yay!). We picked one, and put down the deposit. Apparently the ring will be ready in a few days and I’m going nuts waiting! Like 4 people on my facebook feed have gotten engaged this week, and it seems like everyone and their mother is asking when its our turn. So excited for when i can share MY news!
Any fun stories about waiting or ring picking would be much appreciated!

I’m like 99% sure my SO is proposing this weekend and I’m going nuts! I’m in my office but getting jitters every couple of hours and cannot focus at all! We’re already doing some background research on our wedding so we can hit the ground running after engagement (deciding between destination or local wedding etc) so that’s kept me busy over the last few weeks, but now that it’s actually happening I can’t contain myself 😀 I’m also super excited to finally be able to tell everyone that we’re getting married.
Do update us on what happens!

How exciting! Congratulations on 5 years! My partner and I have our 5 year anniversary on May 28th and I am seriously hoping to be engaged by then! It’s weird because previous years I have been so proud (and still am) at reaching 3,4 years etc but this year I felt like 5 years is too long without an engagement so I 100% get how you feel.
I’d suggest to keep calm and try to focus on other things. If it is ready in a few days then hopefully this is happening soon and you won’t have to be going crazy for too long. I guess just trust that it’s happening and try to focus on other things (difficult I know!).
Good luck Bee! Post pictures of the ring when you have it

marybee22 : Hi bee, yay!! Any ring update??
I, myself have been having almost daily talks with my SO about marriage within a 2 year guideline he estimated himself. He wants to go ring shopping soon,a nd start planning as well. I’m just anxious for the ring to make it official! 🙂
