I hope he pops the question soon! It sounds like he’s slowly going down that path, some guys are just more shy about it than others. And some guys just don’t understand that when we want something, we want it NOW gosh darn it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Fiance and I were together for 9 years before we got engaged. We never discussed it, but we did have conversations where we talked about the future – kids, house, retiring together – that I just took to mean he was thinking about us long term. It wasn’t until last month when I sent him an email with a list of beaches where I’d like to get married one day that he finally got the hint – ‘Oh, so you want to get married’ was his exact reply. After that it happened pretty quickly, within 2 weeks of that email he proposed and we started looking for an e-ring and planning the wedding right after.

But those two weeks, oh man, those 2 weeks were rough! The anticipation and excitement were making me crazy, and then I started to get really frustrated with all the waiting. So yeah, I hear ya, it’s soo annoying when it doesn’t seem like they’re excited about getting engaged the way we are. I’m sure they are, on the inside in their own manly way. Don’t worry! It’ll be here soon, you’ll see!

@Anxiouspeanut:I hear ya! We were in engagement limbo for a little while too and I think that was the most nerve wracking part of it. He proposed w/o a ring so intitally we were keeping under wraps while we went ring shopping – but then he decided he wanted to get married over the summer (which is like, now) so we announced our engagement, w/o the ring. It certainly sounds like he’s thinking of engagement! Would you be okay with annoucing your engagement and then getting the e-ring a little later? That way you’d be able to begin planning and saving for that beautiful wedding…

I feel your pain! lol we are all in this together! And mine is definitely the keep quiet about it so it can be a surprise type too…at least yours is hinting at it for you, so that means it must be on his mind, even if he isn’t talking outright about it!  It’s happening soooon for you, I get the vibe from all your posts that he most definitely is planning something ๐Ÿ™‚
