This is great news and I think your boyfriend wouldnt have talked with your dad if he was going to make you wait another year!

Don’t say anything to your boyfriend… you will regret it later! Just enjoy this waiting time… maybe cook him a lovely dinner, or go to the gym – I find the gym is a great distraction personally – its preparing for a wedding without anyone knowing 🙂

Oh my goodness my dad told me that my Darling Husband asked him.  And I like you was patiently waiting and waiting and waiting.  Until one day after one too many martinis I let it slip that I knew and I was crying cuz I didn’t think it was going to happen because it had been so long since he asked him.  Well I ended up picking out my ring with him and everything.

I totally get it.  I was a little peeved that I knew and that my dad told me.  Don’t worry it will happen…some guys just take longer.

My Fiance asked my parents for permission to marry me 4 months before he actually proposed.  Although I was completely oblivious and my parents didn’t say anything to me.  But your 4 month mark is coming up so maybe it’ll happen soon!  🙂

My Fiance made me wait for almost four months after he asked my dad.  Like you, my Fiance and I don’t see my dad very often, so I know now that Fiance just asked him then because it was something he wanted to do in person, and that was the only chance he was going to get. 

I’ll bet your boyfriend asked then because he knows that you’re the one he’s meant to spend his life with, and there isn’t any doubt in his mind, so he wanted to straighten things out with your dad.  However, it may not be the right moment.  He might be planning to propose on a special day, or perhaps he just hasn’t finished saving up for a ring yet.  There could be several reasons why you’re still waiting, but I highly doubt that any of them have to do with you and your relationship. 

I hope your wait ends soon!  It sounds like your boyfriend has some plans, so I just recommend you give him a little bit longer.  He asked your dad, and that’s a big step!  He wouldn’t have done that if he didn’t know.

EDIT:  My mom let it slip the day after it happened.  I tried to hide that I knew from my Fiance, but he apparently got suspicious that I had seen the ring or something, so he stalked my account here and saw the thread I started about it.  He let me think I had hid it from him that I knew until I finally fessed up a couple weeks after the proposal, though.

My Fiance talked to my parents and waited 6.5 months. Just be patient and know that it’s coming one day! =)

Maybe he is saving up for the ring and wanted to get permission before beginning that journey. I dont think he would have asked if he wasn’t planning on it! keeping my fingers crossed!
