Sorry that you are going through this! I know it must be hard. He just needs to do it already! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Maybe just try communicating with him more about it? If you just want to be engaged already, tell him he doesn’t have to worry about trying to make everything 100% perfect!

@ComputerLove06:  Hello computerlove06!  First of all-pump the breaks a bit :p!  You might have until June of next year!!!  Oh geez you want to be excited but don’t wear yourself out over waiting ๐Ÿ™‚

For me, personally…..I have to stay off facebook for this reason.  I hit rock bottom about 2 years ago and just plain stopped being happy for anyone who was getting married (even more if they were divorced once or under 25!!), and didn’t want to see pics or hear about newborns or baby showers at all.  Maybe it’ll help to back off of it and I think it’s considerate of you to keep your engagement low key.

Now he’s put the thought in your head….this is his time to shine and he knows it!  He gets to plan the ring, the engagement, talk about in secret with his and your family.  Be lucky that he does love you this much and join the shut it up pact!!!  It helps!!  Make it a game ๐Ÿ™‚  good luck!

I hear ya! I have a date, a photog and venue picked, menu decided, bridal party… I have overlays, tablescape decided…a gown Undecided He is still planning the proposal… I don’t want to rush him but gawd… he has the ring…we are 8 years and 2 months in with a 4 month old little boy. The whole extravagant proposal is not necessary but he has to do it how and when he is ready. POO! I just get to wait…yay! Yell

My SO is a meticulous planner too so I totally feel you ther! Me? I’ll do some thinking but once I make a decision, things will be happening the decision is final. Him? He will make a decision… after months of planning/weighing up options etc then will actually act on it… a few months after that.

It drives me nuts haha. BUT! You are planning your wedding, so things are set in motion and will be happening. At least you’re not up in the air about that. And I’m sure whatever he’s planning will be spectacular and totally worth the wait.

Hmmm, based on all that you’ve said, it sounds to me as if it is in the works.

I am going to wager that he’s saving up for the ring… especially so if he is meticulous with details, or the type of guy who has to please his woman (be damned the cost)

In all honesty the Proposal is “their big moment”… ours is when we walk down the aisle.

Sadly ya gotta let him do what he wants with it…

But in the end, no matter what it turns out to be, I promise you you’ll be thrilled.

As for FaceBook, if you can at all limit your exposure (or get off entirely) that frickin thing is the cause of too much drama in the world… especially for Brides-2B

It is worst than Jr High…

Gotta remember that *UKerberg invented this medium as a way to make fun of women, and in particular a girl who dumped him (she found him an obnoxious SOB).  It does nothing to enhance the lives of women, I am convinced (I am sure MZ actually is sitting back and laughing at all the women who have embraced this bit of technology as we are so obsessed with gossip etc.  I don’t think he’s matured very much since his College / Uni days)

Hang in there…

You too will have a moment to shine…

(( HUGS ))

Oh Facebook… I can’t handle it either sometimes. A few of my friends are engaged and seeing posts about their fiancés and wedding planning has started to make me jealous. Like you, my boyfriend and I have been together longer than all of them.

What keeps me going/sane is the fact that we will get to that point. My bf and I already have a tentative date, guest list, and he has the ring. I am so happy that I get to marry him. 

It’a tough, but keep your chin up. It will happen ๐Ÿ™‚

@ComputerLove06:  HA! He wanted to get me a ring way bigger/more expensive than I wanted so I picked a few and saw what he liked. He was saving…ever so slowly..I discovered morganite while looking for diamond alternatives because I didn’t really need a diamond or want a ring that was a diamond just cause thats what erings are supposed to be. Found my ring, simple, solitare, no frills. Totally love that its the “lovers” stone to be sitting on my left hand touching the vein that leads to my heart. I’m a RN so that stuff I like, lol! We ordered it, my mom brought it to him and…he gives it to his mom -_- He finds  it amusing. The only thing I’m sure about is that he is planning something…
