I just wanted to finally introduce myself. I stumbled upon the waiting boards this past summer when I was home ( I am a teacher). I was so relived that there were other women who felt that they were “waiting” as well. Ever since then I have been lurking around, but recently I have had some developments in my waiting status and I felt that this was a place in which they could truly be appreciated.
I’ve been with my SO for a little over 2 years. We meet through his twin sister who is also my college best friend, so I’ve known him for about 5 years now. He’s simply the most amazing guy, everything is just so easy when we are together.
For a few months now we have been jokingly looking at rings online and last week he was like, well let’s go look in a few stores! So we did and found some lovely settings that we both liked. Yesterday he went on “errands” alone, but then came home and told me about some rings that he found and now he’s been looking up settings and stones at night on his computer. EEEE! I’m so excited! I know from various other tales that I may still have a bit of a wait, but that’s ok because at least we are on the same page. 🙂 So thank you for listening to my rambling!

That’s very exciting. I go back and forth between whether this part of the waiting is the hardest part or whether it would be everything leading up to it. This time is very exciting but like you said you may be waiting a month or two or whatever, which is sometimes extremely HARD! I know my guy has had the ring for almost 4 months now and I’ll probably be waiting a few more months at least! Here’s hoping you aren’t!

Hello and welcome! My boyfriend and I are at about the same stage as you right now. We’ve talked about our future plans together, we’ve looked at some rings, and now it’s kind of in his hands. I have no idea what the timeline might be for him so I don’t have any idea when to expect an official proposal.
