It’s so tough I know!  Is it possible that you could get a new hobby or start volunteering to keep yourself busy?  I know from experience that sitting around and wanting it for a long time drives both of you crazy!

๐Ÿ™ sorry you’re disappointed!! (and, as a sidenote, I can’t believe he waited in line for 45 mins when he could have ordered online with a few clicks? That’s dedication!).

Maybe use your Wii to work out some frustration? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just don’t lose grip on the Wiimote and smash your TV!

I know waiting is tough! But NYE and Valentine’s are both coming. A surprise will make it worth the wait!

I know how you feel, especially the “he could have put that money on a ring instead of (insert item here)”.

Waiting sucks but we are here for you.

Oh I remember those feelings..its horrible! Im so sorry you were near tears all day..thats rough ๐Ÿ™ Keep your chin up though! Is your SO the type to surprise you out of the blue? Maybe he will propose on just a regular day and NOT a holiday? Maybe he knows you expect it on holidays? At least you have a ring picked out together and it wont be long til its on your finger. Have a great new years!

*Huggs* I know how hard it can be at the Holidays. I was “waiting” for two years and the holidays were the absolute hardest time. On the upside, Wii’s are so much fun!! I really like that game “Rayman” that is so much fun, and it would definitely take your mind off of waiting!

I have a story. We went on a cruise. I had been waiting for my ring for 21/2yrs! We got a phone call from the security on the ship and they said there was something round that wouldn’t go through the x-ray machine. Well not dawning on me right away, I offered to go with my SO to get this “object”. He politely said “No,that’s ok you stay here”. As soon as he left the light bulb went off,OMG he brought the ring!!!! I patiently waited til formal night,picturing in my head the romantic way he would propose….my hair blowing in the wind from the balcony of the ship,him on one knee blah blah blah. Yah…..formal night came and went,NO RING. As we were sailing home I cried the entire day,it was awful!! He told me the round object was vitamins he had stuffed in his shoe. I did find out months later that he lied he really did bring the ring but obviously wasn’t feeling the moment,or got cold feet. There were other stories like that too. Every holiday was tortore. Just don’t do what I did and give him an ultimatum. I got the ring in the end,but a really crappy proposal. If it’s meant to be it’ll happen the way it should. Hang in there =)

Christmas was really hard this year I knew it wasnt going to happen because of money and stuff but there was still apart of me that thought just maybe he would propose. It didn’t hit me until the day after Christmas and I felt so disappiintrd….waiting stinks

Oh waiting bees I remember that feeling like it was yesterday.

It is such a punch in the gut and truthfully, IT SUCKS!

I can not promise that a NYE proposal is coming for anyone but I can promise you that if you are with the right person a proposal is coming.

and when it does, even if you have been driving yourself crazy waiting for months or years it will all melt away when he finally asks on his own time and not because you have given him an ultimatum or pressured him.

Hang in there waiting bees.

Warm thoughts and best wishes
