So… I’m dying here!
My SO and I have had a kind-of bumpy ride – together aged 16& 17, fell pregnant with our eldest daughter. Together for 3 years, split up for a year and a half, have been back on for 2 n a bit years (unofficially)/1.5 years (officially)
We live toghether, two kids, very much in love. We had the conversatin a few times last year. Now, it’s getting close. My timeline has gone as follows:
28 Nov 11- Went ring shopping, found amazing design.
30 Nov 11 – Confirmed design, ordered ring
12 December 11- Chose centre stone to go into ring
21 December 11 – He picked up and paid for ring (I haven’t seen it!>!!!)
29 December 11 – We buy his “engagement watch” (a deal we’ve had for a long time, lol.) That is now hidden away.
It’s now February.. and I’m dying. We have a wedding to go to this weekend, which I was hoping we were already going to be well sorted for.
Sigh. He’s not the type for a V-Day proposal (too cliche, I suppose). When? I got no Christmas present, because we had paid for the ring. He got a PS3. Not bitter, just…. kind of disappointed and getting sad now 🙁

Ohhh 🙁 He’s probably waiting for the right moment. Maybe he has big plans and/or special people he wants to be there when he pops the question. If I were a guy, shoot, I’d not wait a moment longer as soon as I got the ring! If he’s made you wait this long (a little over a month) there’s gotta be a good reason why he hasn’t done it yet.
Oh PS…I’d talk to him about why he got a gift and you didn’t. I know you’re not bitter but you should let him know that it bothers you.

@missjuli: Thank you 🙂 The Christmas present thing is over and done with – yes it was a bit dumb to have nothing under the tree, especially with his exciting present, but we had a great day, and it was all about our kids 🙂 I guess the thing is that I assumed it would be soon, because of that happening? And now I’m a bit sad that I was wrong.
It is just starting to feel a bit like I imagined the whole thing? We looked at a venue etc shortly afterwards, and I thought I would be confirming in the New Year. I have a pinterest board, colours picked, venue sorted, we’ve discussed guest list and attendants, I read magazines and books…… but I’m going to have to stop now, I think.
Ban wedding related things, maybe.
