My Age/SO age: Me 29/ Him 36
Been with SO: Umm…just shy of two years. We decided that we wanted to be together sometime between Halloween and Thanksgiving of 2009.
Been Waiting: He brought it up about three weeks ago. Up until that point I was perfectly willing to commit to having a child with this man, but the thought of getting married again never crossed my mind.
Been on the bee: Lurking for a week or so, but just registered today.
Current waiting status: He says that he has a surprise for me that he has put a deposit down on and it should be paid off by the end of the month.
How long now?: It could be by the end of the month, but since he’s having some cash flow problems at the moment I’m not counting on it. I’m thinking it’s going to be more like the end of the year.

Current waiting status: He wants to do the ring stuff himself, so I really don’t know where we are with that.
How long now?: back in mid-july he promised no more than 6 months, so within the next 4 months if he follows through.

My Age/SO age: I am 20, my SO is 22.
Been with SO: Too long (hehe!) 😛
Been Waiting: I wasn’t waiting until about half a year ago.
Been on the bee: September 7th — but I was a lurking bee for a bit. :o)
Current waiting status: Quite honestly, I am not sure. He keeps wanting to pick up these random side jobs for a bit of cash out of nowhere, so I think he’s got his eye set on a ring and about to make a purchase.
How long now?: Halloween is my favorite holiday (he knows this), November 17th is my birthday, Thanksgiving we will be around all of his family, and Christmas is coming up. I have a feeling it’ll happen between October 31-January 1st.
