I’m pretty curious as to how long we all think (or know from a mutual timeline) we have until our SO pops the question. I want to know where I personally stand in waiting with all y’all, but I also think it could be interesting to see how accurate we are. I put today’s date so that if people answer it in the future we can still have an accurate picture of when that would be.

My SO said he knows how he wants to propose and for his plan to work it has to be warm weather. The days are just starting to warm up, so sometime between april and august or maybe september!

For me probably about 4-5 months. BF says he wants to propose sometime this summer so I believe him. I’m interested to see what happens and I love the anticipation of this whole waiting. =)

he said he would propose by his birthday july20th, but i think it’s going to be sooner. it’s just a gut feeling!

Most def by Halloween, but I think sooner than that. Every time it gets brought up, he talks sooner. “Well, if it happens in September…” Then, it’s, “Well, July or August or whenever…” I’m just ready for it.

I have no clue. He always said he wanted me to be done with school first which won’t happen until December this year. That’s why I voted one year to a year and a half. Although I asked him if we could go look at diamonds this summer. He said sure and if he liked one he might buy it. Now I’m really excited maybe I was wrong with my timeline.

I voted for 1.5+ years, unfortunately. We know we want to get married, but he just started law school last fall and won’t graduate until May 2013, so I doubt it will happen before then. Here’s for wishful thinking!

He said before our anniversary which is 3 months away. Wow–that seems like very little when I type it out!

@Boston Bee: I’m glad I’m not the only one! I’ve got another year left of an MA so there’s no way it’ll happen before then.

He said that he wanted it to be later but he understands me wanting a long engagement so he said it’s going to be earlier. It doesn’t really help me at all since he refuses to give me a timeline haha, probably within 6-8 months.

He got the ring yesterday and he’s no good at waiting (he should thank god he didn’t have to bee ). So it’s coming any day now…a month at the longest…otherwise him and I are going to box lol

My boyfriend has the ring and has told me he will propose before I go on my trip to Quebec, which is on May 15th. So that would be just under 2 months. Apparently he’s waiting for something; he says he knows when he is going to do it and he’s already told his family…I’m very curious.

So here’s the thing. My boyfriend is moving across the country September 2012. He would like to get engaged before then so we have a little something extra to bond us together. We would be fine without an engagement, but we both just feel that being engaged is different and created more depth in the relationship. That being said, he’s not ready, and I know this. He has no reservations about getting engaged, he says he wants to and he talks about it more openly Noe and I can very much tell he is warming up to it. He’s just waiting until it feels right and we are a little more bonded. He’s pretty sure he will be ready sometime before he moves…. he just has no clue when that will be in his timeframe. So I voted 11-12 months. Sorry that was long. It’s been a bad waiting day.
