So I really can’t fathom the idea of it actually happening. It just seems so fairy-tale-like. I’ve been with him for almost 7 1/2 years, and believe me it has not been a fairy-tale. I’ve been through some pretty tough waiting times, I mean REALLY tough. Cried over it like a little baby, had many, MANY talks with him about it. But I KNOW he’s now ready and I KNOW it’s coming in the next few weeks. He’s been asking me questions about diamonds, and I know he is in the process right now of finding the perfect one. We picked out the setting together almost a month ago, and I am 100% positive he has all the money saved up, he may even have it now!!
It’s just… surreal. I get unbelievably excited thinking about when and where it could happen, but then I take a step back and say, wait…. is this actually going to happen??? FINALLY???!! I am going to be the girl with an engagement ring?!?!?!
I gues I’m just getting really nervous because I know its so close. Still frustrated that it has taken so long… but everything in our lives is finally lined up. We both have our masters completed, bought a house together, have the best dog ever that we both love, great careers, traveled 6 times together already…just need that darn ring (and the marriage of course )
Goodluck to every waiting girl out there and my advice… if you think he’s worth it and what you have together is something you can’t picture your life without… then state your feelings and give him time to come around. I did this multiple times and he was probably sooo annoyed with me at the time but it made him realize how important it was to me aaaand… HE’S FINALLY READY!!!
Hopefully I will be crossing my name off that list oh so soon.
Anyone else feel like IT acutally happening just seems so surreal??

Well, I won’t be getting engaged or married anytime soon, but I can just imagine how excited you feel. Personally when something I’ve wanted to badly for so long finally happens, I tend to get kind of zen and trance-like. Then the day of I just explode and totally lose it!

I know exactly what you’re talking about. We’ve been together 6 years and he finally said he’s been thinking more about marriage positively and said probably around 7 months from now! I just couldn’t believe it when he said that, it’s like shell shock almost. I’m so used to hearing groans about talking about marriage that hearing anything other is like “….. wha…?….” I just won’t believe it until there’s literally a ring on my finger.
Good luck to you!!! Here’s to your waiting being almost over!

I definitely know how you feel.. After 9 1/2 years of dating it does seem unreal that the time will finally come for me.. to the point where if he asks I might be tempted to say “really?? are you sure??” haha.. 🙂 And have everyone else say “finally!!” when we go to announce the news.. I might ask what made him finally do it.. It would seem like a dream..
But thats awesome that your guy is finally ready and definitely warming up to the idea though. It will come soon! 🙂 Good luck! It is a relief though to see the gradual change on your boyfriend’s attitude though! some guys move slower than others but you know when they do it, they will mean it.

I’m having a hard time believing it too. I’m actually getting really nervous because I just never though I’d be at this point in my life. Strange, but true. I’m really, really, really excited and when I get excited I get nervous. It hits me throughout the day and I can hardly wait!!!

I know how you feel also! We have been together for almost six and a half years, and we had agreed that our ‘timeline’ was somewhere between when he gets his bonus from work (mid-Feb) to June.
He surprised me and proposed on Sunday (before the bonus!) I’m still in shock. After all this waiting it’s real~!
Now I’m a little overwhelmed/stressed about the wedding but just enjoying the engagement.
Hang in there Yellow430 – excited for you!
