Oh man, I can’t imagine him buying a truck and all that. I think I’d flip haha. And you’re exactly right, as I mentioned in my previous post as well… I’m not about to start telling him how he should be spending his money or anything. That’s just not cool. I certainly wouldn’t appreciate him doing that to me.
It’s funny though, he’s been super affectionate ever since that conversation. Normally he’s pretty affectionate, but this is way more than usual. All over me. Which, I’m not complaining or anything, I just find it funny lol. He’s also been telling me he loves me more than usual… like any time I’m just sitting quietly watching TV or something, he tells me. Multiple times haha. It’s entertaining!
I hope you’re right, it’d be nice if that money in his account was him saving for a ring. 🙂

I’ve been stuck in stage 3 for what seems like an eternity. I don’t even care anymore. Would I like to be married? Ya, but waiting for the ring? I’m over it. The thought of planning a wedding? No thank you. If he proposed tomorrow, I’d be like – great, courthouse work for you?
I’m hoping that it’ll pass if he ever proposes, but I have a funny feeling that it’ll really just dissolve into a mutual agreement that it’s time. We already talk marriage and what not, so I think it’s safe to say I’m engaged without the ring and the planning. But whatever…
Just like he says – what is a ring and marriage going to change about us? We’re happy now, why mess with that? *sigh*

@authentic: I don’t personally know how you feel but my sister does. She was with her now fiance for 4 1/2 years and was just waiting for him to propose. It got to the point where she was worried that when he did it she would not be excited it would be more of a “what took you so long!” However, she even knew right around when he was going to do it, just not how and she was ecstatic. She was just as excited as anyone else in that moment. I was just lucky enough to be the first one she told/saw after it happened

Oh my goodness I could have written this… I know exactly how you feel. It’s like I just got so carried away by the excitement that now I’m flying too high and I can’t see what I was excited about. I just feel numb when I think of it and it’s making me question whether or not I should be getting engaged. He bought a laptop afetr Christmas that cost exactly the same as my ring, even though he had told me that we would be engaged before Christmas, and now he can’t afford the ring 🙁
Thank you, you story really gave me hope!
