@ChicChick: For me it was once I decided that I really, truly, wanted to be with SO for the rest of my life.

We just talked about it (though over a couple weeks, not all in one moment!). In summary: ‘we know that we want to get married, but not yet. not really sure when, but VERY sure that we want to get married.’

tra-la! Waiting! It was probably a few weeks later I started finding wedding blogs and such.

2 years later, we got engaged.

@ChicChick: that is what my mister said too when he gave me my promise ring [we’re ldr too]. we were dating for a year at that point [it was my anniversary gift] and he gave it to me after i mentioned wanting to buy myself a ring just because. we’ve been waiting ever since.

Good question…I knew early on that SO and I were going to be in a ‘long-term’ relationship.  I guess I was ‘officially’ waiting once we started having serious wedding/future/children talk.  I have been ‘waiting’ for about 6 months and hopefully only have a couple more months to go!!!

We always kind of talked about getting married and stuff but then once we moved in together and seriously discussed if we were ready for the next step I felt like I was “waiting” (:

I guess I began offically “waiting” when he asked me when he saw us getting engaged!  I told him about a year and a half from now (I didn’t want to seem too eager).  lol, that was a year and a half ago!  I’ve only been on these a boards for a couple of days… not sure if it’s helping my anxiety or making me more impatient! lol

We always talked about getting married, but when he took me to look at rings is when I felt like I started waiting.

I would agree probably when we started talking about specifically when to get married, but now especially because I know he has the ring.

Right before our 4 yr anniversary, we went out to dinner and he nervously asked about our future, if I could see us married one day, etc. It actually almost felt like a proposal! He said that he wasn’t ready to get engaged yet, but maybe in about a year.

Cue 18 long, long months of waiting!
