Apparently everyone here is very familiar with Mr bee’s plan, I have just recently stumbled upon it this week and can’t seem to shake the thoughts that it may be the perfect plan for me. I came across the plan in an older thread posted by bees who were having the same thoughts as me and wanted to take part in the plan and support each other in the process. This is exactly what I need- I’d like to jump into the plan and share thoughts, ideas, experiences, progress & just about every thing that the bees have to offer during their waiting battle while following Mr Bees plan.
This would be a great opportunity to see how effective the plan is as well, since we’d all be taking part and keeping track of our progress throughout the thread.
Perhaps Any one who’s Interested could post a short ‘intro’ here to kick things off… Like name, how long you’ve been with SO, what your ETA of engagement is, etc…
So Bees, who’s in?!

For those that don’t know the pact:
Mr. Bee’s Three Step Plan (and Backup Plan!) for getting engaged
1) Shut it up and say nothing about your wedding or engagement
2) Don’t expect an instant proposal because your SO needs to save money. The less expensive ring you want, the less time he has to save
3)Set a deadline in which you will implement that back up plan
Back up plan Cliff notes:
1) Do the things you would do if you just had a break up (except don’t, of course, start dating other guys)
2) Focus on yourself and your own interests
3) Invest in yourself

@Alaric2012: Unfortunately, my way was almost the exact opposite of what Mr Bee suggested. Mine did help (I think)…anyways I spoke about it in the two posts below…at considerable length too.
