I knew right away that I was going to marry my now hubby. We moved fast too lol. I moved in with him 6 months into our dating relationship, dated for another 6 months and got engaged on our 1 year anniversary of dating! We married a month and a half later!

Before he poped the question I screwed up EVERY single proposal idea/place he had. I could read his mind like a book (and still can!) Finally, we had to quit talking about it all together and he surprised me.

Welcome to the “hive”!

So exciting!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I remember the pain of waiting, and waiting, and WAITING!! I waited for, over a year at least. I can’t even remember how long, but it seemed like a lifetime! We dated for 7 years before getting engaged, so maybe that’s why it felt like forever! But having him do it his way is definitely better, but I know right now you want it SOOO bad and you don’t care about waiting! I wouldn’t have listened to my own advice back before I was engaged!

I bugged my fiance every now and then, for months. He would always say, “Time will tell”. I HATED THAT PHRASE. lol Then we seriously agreed that we should wait until around the time we gradutaed from college (we graduate this December). At least I had an idea of a timeline. I quit saying anything. I never brought it up unless he did, which was rare. So I was totally shocked when he proposed! He was trying to throw me off the whole time. He had been planning the ring since May, he had it made with this great grandmother’s diamond, so the ring was ready around the end of June. The day he picked up the ring was the night we got engaged! He was nervous I would find it and ruin the surprise. And he suprised me alright!

Once it happens, you are so, so, so happy you waited for his timing. It means that much more because he did it on his own. I’m so excited for you and the amazing things that are about to happen for you!! Enjoy every moment ๐Ÿ™‚

i’m totally in the same boat as you!  SO and i started dating a few years ago just months before i went overseas for a year to get my master’s.  i knew so soon into our relationship that this was it and he was the one, but he just wasn’t ready to be “engaged”, since we were both still in school and i was 3000 miles away.  on our one year anniversary he gave me a promise ring saying that it wasn’t an engagement (because of our situation) but a promise that there would be someday.  that was almost 1.5 years ago and the wait is KILLING ME!  we actually did go and pick out my engagement ring back in june, so that i think is worse than not knowing at all if he was planning something.  it’s soooo hard not to say “come on already!!” but guys have to do this in their own time and own way, so we just have to bite the bullet, unfortunately.  keep us posted on your progress!! ๐Ÿ™‚

AHH! I know this is old but I have to comment! This sooo reminds me of my boyfriend (now fiance)!!! We’d been talking about getting married pretty much since we first started dating so I felt like I’d been waiting forever to get that proposal (and we’ve been together less than 3 years!).  He always talked about the things he wanted to buy (motorcycle, rims, new speakers for his car, many other boy things) and sometimes I’d get annoyed and tell him I’m not waitin forever and if he has a ferarri before i have a ring I know he doesn’t love me!! Haha but he is almost two years younger than me so I was really not expecting him to be ready any time soon.  Sometimes (ok all the time) I’d bug him n try to feel him out n say “we’re never gonna get marriiiiiied :(” and he always said “how do you know I dont already have a ring!?” and I’d say “yeah right” n drop it, but it turns out he bought a ring in may and was waiting til my birthday in october to propose! YAY! Even though I suspected he was going to propose I still couldn’t believe he actually did!
