Lol! SO hates that I want a timeline. Me saying I wanted a timeline ie. sometime this year. In his head, me asking for a timeline = day/ time/ how he’s gonna do it. I’m NOOOOOOOO THAT’S NOT WHAT I’M LOOKING FOR!

@memo:  This!!

My boyfriend went with “It’ll be in the near future” but then a few breaths later “But not soon” WHAT?!

I know this boy is serious about marrying me and I know the ring will come but gosh darnit can’t I get a hint!?

I was soooo here. EXACTLY what memo said, he thought me asking for a timeline would “lock him in” to something, and he won’t even make dinner plans for teh weekend if there’s like a one percent chance he can’t do it…

BUT- first time we had a marriage talk was about four months ago (the whole “I CAN’T GIVE A TIMELINE!!!” thing) and now, just a few days ago, he finally gave me a timeline (which was shorter than I was expecting.

I think men just need time to get used to it and I think they’re stubborn and they want it to be THEIR IDEA, not something you “got them” to do.

Hang in there!!!! xo

My SO was anti-timeline at first too, but I pretty much told him that if he wanted to do a traditional proposal (as in one that surprised me) he was going to have to give me a timeline so that I knew I wasn’t being strung along. It seemed only fair! That was a long time ago though. He gave me a timeline around this time last year for anytime in 2013.
