I’m new here..and just find this website really helpful..and just thought I introduce myself. I’m layla..been with my bf for almost 6 years, been waiting for 5 years..living together 5 years…I’m 32..he’s 37. He has promised me that we’re going to get engaged in January 2011…so there’s really no surprises, the only surprise is if he’s not going to propose like he said he would!!! I would have to kill him if that’s the case j/k LOL!!! We’ve been through many arguments and fights about this engagement thing, and honestly I think after everything that we’ve been through I think he finally gets it. I realized that with men, they do things different from how we do things .They get married when they feel the time is right. There’s no biological clock that is ticking off like it is for us. LOL I’m excited that he’s finally ready to marry me and we were talking about doing it on 1.1.11 or 1.11.11…just trying to make it memorable. He’s told all his family that he’s going to marry me. We went to look at rings back in September….so right now I don’t really want to keep my hopes up too high, but I can’t help not think and get excited about it either…..however, I’m still waiting….:( I don’t know what’s going to really happen…let’s see if he will do what he says he would…I’m counting down the days…

Thank you all so much for the warm welcome. So it’s 4 days and 5 more nights before New Year’s Day. I told him I wanted to New Year’s proposal, but he has insisted on 1/11/2011. A month ago he said he would not let me know when and wants this to be a surprise…even if we have already decided that it would be one of those 2 dates…he was still be elusive about which day he will propose…I think he’s trying to keep me in suspense but it’s killing me!!! I have waited 5 years for this man, and I know another few more days isn’t going to hurt, but it’s just the suspense that’s killing me. I have not had any clue if he got the ring yet or not. What I thought was going to be a christmas proposal did not happen. I don’t want him to know how anxious I have been for these last couple of days, and everytime I talk to him, I keep looking for clues as to when he’s going to propose…..I can’t stop obsessing about it because it feels like it’s going to happen soon………but a part of me is also scared…worried that it might not happen…? 🙁 I know I know I need to relax, but ladies it’s hard to relax after knowing that your life is going to change in a couple of days….I’m still waiting…and even when the time is almost coming…the waiting can still be very painful… 🙁 I’ll keep you updated…so far, I can’t tell if he got the ring yet or not….no clues, nothing…I don’t really know what’s going to happen…keeping my fingers crossed..hoping for a new year’s proposal if not then, 1.11.11 would be ok too…….just hate the wait…

I’m so disappointed… 🙁 I know I’m not getting a New Year’s proposal, cos I just talked to SO about it and he didn’t even get the ring yet!!! :((((( I know I already made the mistake of being angry, sad, and dissappointed at him … I know I should have been patient and all that, but it was hard to contain my emotions. I know …BIG MISTAKE!!!!
Anyway, found out he didn’t even get the ring yet, he said he didn’t have time…I just looked at him like BUllsh*t…he had time to do everything else…I told him that I can’t take this anymore and I’m sick and tired of waiting….I think it came across to him like an ultimatum……but whatever, I feel like if he doesn’t propose by the end of January…it will be over between us. I’m moving out..
I asked him what about 1.11.11? he said he would either propose on new years day or that date, but since now that it’s definitely not going to happen on new years day…he said it will be a surprise….I feel like punching him in the face…i’m so sick of this bullsh*t….is it normal to feel this way???
he keeps asking me to be patient, but I just feel like I’m running out of patience…and then he just looked at me like I’m so demanding..like all i care about is the ring..I told him it’s not about the ring..it’s about making things right…he’s almost 40 years old…if we’re not going to make things right then I can’t be in this relationship….all he said to me after that was he will get me the ring he promise…
now I feel like should I expect it on 1.11.11?? I dont want to get my hopes up so high and get dissappointed again…but do I still give him till end of January?? i feel like i keep giving him more and more time…and i’m sick of doing it
