hello πŸ™‚ My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been dating 11 years. In my mind I’ve been waiting about 1.5 years. We went ring shopping in January and he decided he wanted to get a custom made ring. I’m pretty sure he has it or is pretty close to paying it off.

* side note, we’re going camping next weekend & I think it’s the perfect proposal spot but I donn’t think he’s going to do it, or he’s a very good liar.

We have been dating for 2 and a half years. I have been waiting for about 1. He has had a ring for 6 months. My birthday is next month……..I can only pray!

I have been with my SO for a year and a half…and feel like I have been ‘waiting’ for about 4 months.  I know some ladies on the board have been waiting quite a bit longer.  I am 36 and my SO is 41…I have been married once before (to a JERK-OFF…sorry had to get it out) for 2 long years…and my SO has never been married.  I have never been so sure about a man as I am of Mr Kittykakes..we are the perfect fit in everyway.  He loves my 2yr old daughter like his own and adores me.  I had to wait 36 years for him…so I can wait a little longer…(hopefully only a couple more months though!!)

 

@cherrydoll:I hope he proposes while you guys are camping…how romantic!!

We have been together for 6 years this June and bought a house together last year (I wanted to put our money towards that instead of a potential ring/wedding) Now that I have convinced him that I wanted a Mira moissanite and to put ‘diamond’ $$ towards the mortgage we ordered a custom setting and he has had the ring hiding for about a month now ..I am hoping by the end of this year πŸ™‚

Dating a little over 2 years. Been waiting since the beginning of this year. Though he started to test the waters last year. Bought a house this year. As my mom puts it, I tend to do things ass backwards. πŸ™‚ But I was told nothing would happen till early next year. Here’s to hoping he finally learned how to lie to me and it’s actually going to be this year. (crosses fingers)

SO and I have been together a little over five years, and I think I’d say I’ve been waiting about a year now. I finished grad school last June and have had itchy finger syndrome since then. I know there is a ring hidden someplace in the apartment (it’s taking all of my self control not to go on a treasure hunt to ogle the final piece), and I’m hoping I will get to wear it before SO’s grad school semester starts at the end of next month πŸ™‚

I’ve been with SO for 22 months, and though we talked about marriage from the beginning I’d say I have actually officially been waiting for 2 months. We had hit a rough patch and we came back from it stronger than ever and I knew that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. Hopefully I don’t have long to wait… sounds like he’s got something up his sleeve πŸ™‚

@QuinnLynn7: We’ve been dating over 2 and half years now (officially, it’ll be 2 years in October!), and we bought a house together 6 months into our relationship having discussed marriage and our futures – so I guess you could say I’ve been waiting 2 years! 

GOOD LUCK with the camping trip – fingers crossed for you!!! πŸ™‚ xoxo

I’ve been with my guy for over 3 years.

He bought the ring about ten days ago.

We already set a date and started planning.

BETTER BLOODY HAPPEN SOON!

Think September may be the month

Oh I almost feel bad posting mine cause I haven’t been waiting as long as some.  So and I have been dating 1 year but have known each other for 2 years.  We started talking about getting married at the beginning of this year.  He’s had the ring for almost 2 weeks and I know it will happen before the end of the year, just personally hoping he doesn’t make me wait that long.  To be fair, we’re both 26 almost 27 and I have a house already so we aren’t super young by any strech of the imagination.

I started discussions about getting engaged in spring/summer 2010 with the hopes that we would get engaged in the fall 2010.  We’ve been together for 3 years now.  We didn’t get engaged then but we did move in together and have been talking a lot more lately about our committment.  He told me that we would be engaged by the time I start school in November!
