@sarahroby:  I’ve been waiting since January, and we’ve been together 3 years this past Sept.  

My SO and I have not gone ring shopping, just discussed timelines.  I’m going to consider myself a waitingbee since I joined this site in Jan because it’s my waiting anxiety that brought me here lol!  Tongue Out

My boyfriend and I have been together for 3+ years and went ring shopping in February.  He put a down payment on a ring that day and now I’ve been impatiently waiting ever since!

I’ve been actively waiting since June when we went ring shopping. He went back last weekend though by himself *squeal*. Our 5 year anniversary is in November, so that’s what I’m betting on. I know it’ll be before the end of the year though.

@sarahroby:  I have been waiting since Dec 2010 when one of my so workers got engaged over the holidays. she left the company, never saw her again but it got me thinking about us and our future. and a small part of me will always hope that one day, he’ll take me shopping, it might be next year, if nothing comes up 


I want a canadian diamond, solitare, or 3 stone. elegant. i have slender fingers so no halos or emerald cut. a round shape is nice. i far prefer something under $2000 as i don’t want us to go broke, lol. no, no big wedding. just a small gathering.


and yes, I’ve thought about alot, and have reasearched alot. hope will always be alive, lol.

We have been together for 5 years now.

It’s hard to say how long I’ve been waiting, since the feeling came on slowly for me. 

Sometime last winter I made an offhand comment to a friend that I thought So and I would be engaged in the spring. SO and I never talked about a timeline, but things were going so well that I thought it might happen anyway. So maybe the waiting started then? 

There was a small part of me that hoped for a proposal during our big vacation in June, but no dice! 

I’ve only be unhappy about waiting for a few months — maybe since July. It didn’t help that I turned 30 that month!

@sarahroby:  well, we designed the ring together, I know his income, and I know how much the ring costs, so I had thought he’d have it paid off by the end of November (that’s how it works out mathematically). However, his mom needed some insurance information for his car, so I went to grab something out of his glovebox, and he put his hand on it and said “no! don’t look in there!”. He said there may or may not be something ring related in there, and I said “…like how much you’ve paid on it?” and he said “…maybe”. SOOOO, I guess I’m officially waiting now haha.

We’ve been together for 4.5 years, but I’ve “really” been waiting since July 9th, when the ring was delivered…13 weeks tomorrow, not that anyone is counting… Wink

I’m going crazy – I’m soooo impatient!

Since spring of 2011, sort of. But more concretely (as in, actually discussing getting married) since sometime the summer before last– so 15 months or so?

I am 98% sure the ring is SOMEWHERE in the house, or in his parents’ house, now, and has been since late August! I strongly suspect he is waiting until I finish classes and can finally be home full-time, in December. I wonder if he is waiting also because he wants to ask my parents’ blessing/permission over Thanksgiving or something. . . I hope he’s done that already though, it’s nerve-racking.

At least 8 months. We started talking marriage over a year ago, but started looking at rings in February. I do know it will happen sometime in 2013, so it can’t be longer than 3 months! SO READY! Our 4 year anniversary is coming up in December!

[Edited to add how long we’ve been together]

Everyone in this thread so far has been in their relationship so much longer than I have XD


Honestly by most people’s standards I’m not even waiting, he hasn’t got a ring – we havn’t looked at rings, he’s never even brought up the subject by himself. But I’ve been pointlessly hoping something will happen for just over a year now. So I’ve been hoping since just before we were together for 1.5 years and we’ve now hit 2.5, I’d bet money that I’ll be waiting for at least another year before anything begins to happen.
