Ok – was reading Anxious’ post and saw my count and had to rectify the number – bad number, so here’s a silly wedding pic, totally off topic, sorry Gwen:

@GwenvonD:  Well I hope this selling his Jeep was what he was refering to.  All the emails and calls seem like a good sign that it won’t be long.  I hope he does the right by you and proposes hopefully once the jeep is sold.  If he doesn’t well then it’s his lost.

I know I don’t know you or anything, but I just think you deserve better.  To some of us outsiders who have been reading your story, it seems abundantly clear that he is stringing you along and you keep making excuses for him and staying in the relationship.  My heart breaks a little for you when I read your posts.  I just wanna give you some grrrl power or something 😉  But of course, you know your self, your man, and your relationship best, and I’ll stop commenting now, as it seems like your mind is made up.  I do hope everything works out for you.

How long have you been waiting Gwen? 

It’s hard to tell you what’s right or wrong to do as we are not in the relationship – but trust you gut. If you feel like he is giving you excuses as why you don’t have a ring as of yet it’s kind of stupid TBH. Do you care about an expensive ring? What about getting a nice CZ ring for now and when you guys have more cash spring for the big diamond?

Well i guess only time will tell once the Jeep is sold. I stand by my original statement until then.

I wonder if he’s worried about getting you a super expensive fancy ring.  Why don’t you guys just go to a pawn shop or something and pick an inexpensive one out.  Or eff the engagement and go elope.  If he was willing to do either of these things, I think it would be telling.

@GwenvonD: I know exactly what you mean. My SO almost has the money to buy the ring and I have seen more progress lately .. he is going to have a one on one chat with his mother to tell her he is going to ask me to marry him.. It would have happened sooner but he is like your SO in that way where he wants to get me something I can be proud of and show off.  At the most it will come to $1000 after taxes… which is completely fine with me. I told him I didnt need an expensive ring but he wants to get me something he thinks is fit not something cheap. So I hope that Jeep sells soon for you guys.

@GwenvonD: Yeah, fortunetly I dont have to wait for something to be sold to get it… I thought I would have to but now he has saved up from his pay cheques and almost has the money… sorry you have to wait I do know the feeling and it sucks.  My problem is that he still wants to buy this car and there arent many out there to choose from of what he wants I would say its a good $2000… he wants to buy me the ring first and then buy the car… Only problem is… In the engagement process we both should be saving up for our honeymoon ( gonna try and use some money from the budget my parents have given me but still ) also the little things we will need to pay for ourselves. I know I need to bring it up to him after I get the ring but maybe he can use the money he gets from his brother house when it sells ( still not friekin sold) and buy the car with that and use the money he saves from paycheques for part of our honeymoon.   ????
