I’m tired of not knowing 100% if something is in the works. (Yes, I’ve talked to my guy about it, but he’s very quiet about it all). Not tired of waiting for things to happen. I bought a house, closing next week. Celebrating our anniversary the same day. I don’t know. We are always doing things so it makes waiting seem like less of a hassle. And given the sheer expense of getting engaged and getting married (he wants a big wedding) I’m enjoying the freedom we both have at the moment. Would I love to be engaged? Of course. Is the fact that we aren’t weighing on me? Not really.

I’m sorry you’re having a rough time. But it doesn’t sound like nothing is happening. Things are happening, it just takes time for them to come to fruition. Your puppy is on the way. Your guy is actually planning the proposal instead of just saying that he wants to propose eventually at some unknown point in the future. I’m a take charge kind of person to, so I understand your frustration. But, sometimes, you really do need to just let go and enjoy the process. The things you want to happen like engagement, marriage, buying a home are huge and take time, loads of time sometimes. If you want a distraction, I’d suggest researching the home buying process if you aren’t already familiar. Dream a little. Be happy that you are very close to having all the things you want out of life. Keep venting here. 🙂 We all have bad days. Doesn’t make us crazy. Just makes us human.

I agree! Great Advice! I was in your position right before we got engaged, luckily my fiance is SUPER easy going and I sort of took matter into my own hands. Do I suggest this? NO! The only reason it worked was… acutally I have no clue, I suppose my Fiance is a saint, lol. Try to find something to take you mind off of it. It’ll take the pressure off. And don’t forget, you two are in this together! When the day finally comes, you’ll know it came naturally (which is more than I can say for myself!) And yes, make sure to vent to us as much as needed! That’ll keep the peace at home!

@jeannes85: has he given you any type of timeline for a proposal, or are you completely in the dark about how much longer you’ll be waiting?
