I guess after waiting so long, one starts to think when will the waiting come to an end? Or will it? It’s so bad that I am looking to the internet to give me some stupid made up date/ answer when he will pop the question. I know SAD. But the sad fact is, is that the only one who knows that answer is HIM. I just feel like I’m going a little nuts not knowing my own future because this is what I want for ME!! I’ve already chosen my path and I would like to start down it if he doesn’t mind. 5 years is long enough!!

I hear ya sister! Ive felt that way for soo long, but I think now that Boyfriend or Best Friend finally has enough saved up to get a ring in the price range we agreed,Im starting to get really excited and less anxious..hopefully these feelings are justified soon (and that you get a proposal soon too!)

OMG! I feel like crying ALL the time. 3 years and waiting. I’m like will it ever happen. Yes we’ve talked about it and we’ve been ring shopping potentially found the one. But from my knowledge he doesn’t have money saved up for a ring and there is no proposal in the near future. That sucks because my deadline is the end of the year. I can’t wait any longer as this is torture. I commend all the ladies here who have waited but I’m not that girl. It’s all or nothing for me. I love suprises but hate anticipation.

Yeah I know what you mean. I think what I hate most about waiting is the helplessness. He’s told me he wants to marry me. I’ve told him I want to marry him. We went ring shopping and chose a ring. All I can do now is wait until he wants to make it official. It’s frustrating because I feel like my life is on hold! I don’t get any say about when, he does. The hardest part is keeping my mouth shut about it when I’m going crazy inside lol, but I don’t want to pester him about it either. aaauuughhh

I feel you, too! My guy and I live together and we have a little girl. We already “look” and “act” married to many people so that’s what they assume. We both want to marry each other and live happily ever after, but he’s more content with waiting than I am right now. Since he’s the only one bringing home an income, there’s really not a lot left after paying bills. Why can’t he just squirrel away $20 bucks here and there to save up for a ring? It was very hard biting my tongue when he came home with Halo Reach the other day. That $60 bucks could’ve gone to my E-Ring fund, dammit!
Woooooo, thanks for letting me vent!

Definitely. Since SO won’t give me a timeline other than “it’ll probably be a long time,” I know there’s probably no end in sight for me for a while. Sometimes I think that pretending in my mind that I KNOW it won’t be for five years or something long time like that helps, so I do that frequently — it sometimes takes a little of the pressure and anxiety off.
