    My Age/SO age: Me – 31, Him – 34

    Been with SO: 4 yrs. (living together for two yrs.)

    Been Waiting: Approx. 3 yrs.

    Been on the bee: Since summer of 2011 maybe…?

    Current waiting status: According to my dad, J made the deposit on a ring about 2.5 weeks ago.

    How long now?: I voted for ‘a few months’ because I really don’t know how long he’ll hang onto that ring for. Hopefully it’s on my finger by Hallowe’en.

    • Wedding: May 2013

    My Age/SO age: I’m 26…will be 27 in November.  He is 30.  

    Been with SO: 2 years and 3 months on October 2nd 2011

    Been Waiting: hmm…we started talking about it after 1 year of dating, but I didn’t seriously think it would happen until on or after our 2 year anniversary

    Been on the bee: I was on here when we started talking about engagement last summer, but I took a break since I knew it would be at mid to late 2011 before he would actually propose.  I returned to the bee last week!

    Current waiting status: He recently told me that he will definitely propose by the end of this year and he asked for my ring size this weekend! 

    How long now?: I have no clue, but I’m guessing maybe another 4 – 8 weeks so that we are engaged by Thanksgiving.  I wouldn’t complain if it comes sooner though!

    My Age/SO age: I’m 29, he is 33.

    Been with SO: 3 years 11 months

    Been Waiting: Over 2 years

    Been on the bee: Since November 2009. We had just bought our first home together and the pressure on both of us to get engaged was HUGE so I felt I needed some support.

    Current waiting status: Who knows! We own a house together and we talk about it a bit, but he is really shy and is a bit freaked out on the idea of a wedding – but not a marriage. He knows what kind of ring I want, knows I want to be married in 2013 and that I want more than a year to plan. He just has to do something about it now!

    How long now?: I would say anywhere up to 1 year!
