The waiting sucks hey, I have just under two weeks to go, I think but it is tough.

Perhaps talk to him about whether he is ready for engagement now as well, and if so maybe he could propose with something other than a ring, and when he can afford it you guys could go pick out the perfect ring together 🙂 


i am the same with watching all those shows too, got ideas going back and forth in my head. 


To cope, maybe hang out with friends as much as possible and keep yourself busy with other things. And if you can’t get your mind off it, perhaps start getting ideas in your head for everything you want for your special day 🙂


I hope this helps!

I’ve been with my SO 3 years already and just recently realized it was definitely coming! Dont worry!! You are still very young! If you are anxious to simply get married and the ring or ceremony arent important, tell him that! He might opt for at CZ ring first (to upgrade later) and a small wedding. If you are wanting the perfect ring and the perfect wedding you will just have to keep busy with other things!

Can i suggest the Mr. Bee Plan? lol

It seems you and your bf are on the road to getting engaged but you’d like to speed up a bit. Yes, I know the waiting can be hard especially when your surounded with others getting engaged and married.

Is the cost of an engagement ring the only thing holding him back? Do you want a diamond ring? or perhaps another stone? What kind of ring do you want? or Do you want one? What if he asked you to marry him and got married with a beautiful wedding ring or is an engagement ring important to you? If you two are in love and want to be married would you consider not having an engagement ring and having a wedding band only?

Im dying waiting too! I try to be patient and sometimes I just freak out at him and then feel horrible after of course. He’s got the ring on layaway and I don’t know when he will actuallyhave it or if when he does have it, how long it will take him! He’s a perfectionist. I almost broke up with him waiting for him to tell me he loved me for the first time! Ugh!Mnemosyne can be so frustrating.

I dont think you can concern yourself with other people’s engagements, and just because you were in a previous relationship and had expected to be married by now, doesn’t mean you can expect this new relationship to move forward to  marriage at a quicker pace.

He obviously wants to get you a great ring, and he takes this quite seriously because he is with you for life. I know waiting is hard – that is why we are all here – but from what you are saying you won’t be waiting too long! Is 6 months really that much longer to wait for him to ask in the face of a lifetime?

I dont think you will be waiting too  long for him to propose, so just enjoy the time you have together!
