Mariposies123 :  Congratulations! That being said, I would not encourage other bees to naively have “faith” in a single individual.

Congratulations! Others in your shoes can continue to keep the faith  if they think he is worth it….or they could do the the unthinkable and propose to him.

I hate when people come back and insist that because their boyfriend finally proposed after dragging it out endlessly that it somehow “proves” that girls in that situation need to just “have faith” in their man and stay in that relationship. That is HORRIBLE advice. 

Congrats on your engagement! Really happy it worked out for your situation.

Congrats! I’m happy it worked out for you. I agree that if your partner has integrity and is an open and honest communicator then he’s worth waiting for if that what you think is best for you. (I’m not sure why people are thinking she said to have blind faith!) Beautiful e-ring, thanks for posting it!

Oooh yay congrats! 

I don’t think OP said to just stay willy nilly no matter what reasons he says. She’s saying if you really truly believe in your person not stringing you along and in his character then to keep some faith.

ladyjane123 :  It is also horrible advice when people tell someone they should leave because of a proposal delay and that “the right guy can’t wait to marry you.” Yeah, some people are more impulsive than others. Hopefully most people asking for advice realize that for the most part, people are drawing conclusions on a limited set of facts.

How about people not crap all over OP’s engagement? She was just sharing her story that things worked out the way she had hoped and she’s happy.

Congrats OP! You have a very lovely ring and don’t let anyone on here spoil this moment for you.

Mariposies123 :  Congratulations! After so many years together and riding the roller coaster of life, I’m sure your relationship is very strong. Wishing you many more years together!

P.S. Your ring is lovely! The intricacy of it is gorgeous 🙂

Peachytalk :  I agree with you. We as posters on a website never know the full picture of any relationship post. If the person in the relationship 100% truly doesn’t think that they are being strung along and that they know their man’s character, it seems really harsh to imply that they are totally wrong. I am unpleasantly surprised that it is coming up in this thread, which should be a happy thread for OP.

MiniMeow :  Yes, it is incredibly rude is it to come into this thread to judge and put down OP’s choices and experience.

nycsa :  I also have noticed that this community tends to jump to conclusions whenever waiting on someone to be ready for engagement is involved.
