    Been with SO: 3 years 2 months

    Been Waiting: Since about last Christmas so…. 9 months?

    Been on the bee: Since August 2011.

    Current waiting status: Ring has been purchased and is hidden somewhere in BF’s house.  I still don’t think he’s asked my father’s permission yet, though. 

    How long now?: Could be anytime! Laughing  We’re going on vacation to Disney the first week of November, so I’m guessing that’s when it’s gonna be, though I won’t be upset if it happens sooner!  **taps foot impatiently** lol

    My Age/SO age: Me 28/Him 28 (29 in December)

    Been with SO: 2 years, 6 months (known each other for 17 years)

    Been Waiting: since day 1!  In “serious waiting mode” for about 6 months

    Been on the bee: A month or so

    Current waiting status: I know he’s talked to my father (and mother, and sisters, and just about EVERY FRIEND I HAVE!!!).  I know he has a ring picked out and that he’s been making payments on it for a while now (he decided to setup an account with the store to make deposits into, instead of financing it and having to pay interest). I don’t know if he’s still making payments or if he has the ring.

    How long now?: He says before the EOY, so 93 days or less!
