I will cry, drown myself in insane amounts of hot cocoa and eat way to much holiday food since I know it isn’t happening over the holiday season.

Or maybe we could be thankful we have loving relationships instead of concentrateing on what we don’t have?

I am already dreading that Christmas day trip to my cousins’ house. If SO hasn’t popped the question by then, I’m sure it’s going to be a topic of conversation for the whole family!  =/

Well for a lot of bees it could be a happy time bc so many people do propose around the holidays! I am excited to see all the proposals in the upcoming months. Mine might be around Thanksgiving (I hope)!

I do have to say that my favorite holiday jewelry commerical is by Kay’s:

A man and woman are up in the mountains (or something) and there’s this horrible storm…

LIGHTNING STRIKES!

WOMAN’S SCARED!

TURNS TO MAN FOR COMFORT!

Man holds her gently and says, “I’ll never leave you…”

PULLS OUT A BOX *DUN DUN DUUUUUNNN*

OPENS IT! *GASP*

It’s A>>>>>>>

 

 

Necklace?

What a dick.

Haha that commercial gets me everytime.

It’s going to be okay during the holidays. You never know what could happen. At least you KNOW you’re getting presents, food, and chocolate, right? Oooh, and mistletoe. 😉

@Torrid:  What a dick. Oh my god. I nearly spit my water out. Ahahahahaha.

I know SO won’t propose on Christmas (maybe before? hopefully?), but I’m so not looking forward to the family pressure. Ugh. Just as obnoxious as the commercials.

You, to boyfriend: “Please don’t propose to me between November 15 and January 15.  Holiday proposals are cheesy and overplayed, and I want it to be special for what it is.  Also, FYI, to protect yourself, don’t give it to me at Christmas or my birthday or I get to keep the ring if we break up before the wedding because it was an unconditional gift.”

You, to rest of family: “SHUT UP!  DON’T RUIN FUCKING CHRISTMAS FOR ME!  I told him not to propose to me at any time surrounding the Holidays, so no chance, now never speak of it again.”

Proceed to enjoy snugging under the Christmas tree and kissing at midnight on New Years, convincing yourself he had something prepared that you’ve just delayed a little.

@arsing89:  +1. Me too. I think I will imidiately change the chanel when a new jewlery comercial comes on. the last 3 years it drove me insane. Now that I have a strong feeling it could happen over the holiday season/winter I can’t be bothered.

If you have a timeline for after the new year, I would just tell pesky relatives that you think 2013 is the year, or something to that effect. Or just be like, “Oh, he KNOWS i’d love a proposal on V-Day” or some other important date, and just go with it.

@Sapphire-Dreamer:  Actually I would have, too, but I made him swear not in front of my family and not at Christmas or for my birthday.  Then I had to wait until September, so…

Am I missing something?  Surely waiting isnt everything at Christmas?  There’s gift giving, being grateful, seeing friends, family, getting festive, drinks with the girls, sparkly dresses, big barrels of twiglets and christmas cake and you’d let something like waiting get you down?  Go drink some mulled wine and be in love!  If it’s going to happen, it’ll happen.  If it’s not happening, go kiss someone else under the mistletoe.  Christmas is a time for happiness and appreciating what you have in life.
