Been with SO: 3 years 4 months
Been Waiting: about Just over 2 years
Been on the bee: Since June 2010
Current waiting status: Ring purchased and being made.
How long now?: Could be as soon as 2 weeks! Eak!

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.

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!

Post # 10
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!
