This is my first post and I guess, an introduction to this lovely community. I have already had so much fantastic advice and I decided to join!
I have been with my gorgeous boyfriend for 4 years and we’ve been living together for 3 years. We’re so in love and are so happy together and have discussed that one day, we will be husband and wife (I have a giant grin on my face when I write that)
We decided to have the ring made and we spent a blissful 3 months shopping for diamonds and designs. In February this year we had the ring made and although I know the elements of the ring (diamond/cut/carat/setting) it will still be a surprise as it only really exists in my head at the moment! haha
I know he has the ring so I’ve been waiting since february for him to propose. It’s so hard being so excited and not wanting to tell anyone! I’m also a little frustrated that I really want him to propose so we can start our lives together…it’s been so long, I wonder how much longer I have to wait…
Anyway, that’s me…knowing it’s coming but I don’t know when! It’s so great knowing that I’m here and that there are other girls in the same situation.
Apologies for the long post and thanks for reading 🙂
If there’s anyone else out there in the same or similar boat to me I’d love to hear how you’re going!

Welcome! That’s exciting, sounds like you’ve got your proposal right around the corner! I’ve got a little longer to wait, but just hang in there!

We had a long discussion on the weekend about ‘when’ and he got a bit upset with me. He told me he has a plan of when and where and he wants to stick to his plan rather than feel like he has to propose to me sooner because I’m impatient! (although, he did tell me it wasn’t ‘soon’ but definitely before the end of the year!)
I guess this is also why I decided to join, I need to stop mentioning anything engagement or wedding related so when it comes around I know it’s how HE wanted it…
I guess I forget sometimes that he has probably been thinking about proposing to a girl just like I’ve always though about being proposed to by a boy 🙂

It’s been a while since my last post but I wanted to drop in to say thanks to this lovely little community for keeping me sane – you probably don’t know it but it’s been so fantastic to read posts from women playing the same waiting game!
I guess to update all of you. I’m not yet engaged – my gorgeous man has the ring we designed together, he has had it since FEBRUARY – it’s been tough! Over the past 6 months We have been to 4 engagement parties and will go to our 8th wedding this weekend. I wonder when it will be my turn?
I know you’re not meant to compare yourselves to others but it’s been hard to wait and watch and not being able to contribute to the conversations that have been dominated by wedding and engagement talk – I want to shout our love from the rooftop and know what it’s like to share OUR happy news with the world!!
Wow, that felt good to get out!
Anyway, thanks again…I’m sorry I don’t always respond to everyone but THANKS for posting your posts andkeeping me sane

I’m new to the board and on the waiting list too!
My boyfriend and I are planning to wed on August 24, 2013. He thinks saying “well as long as I propose by August 23, 2013, then that should be fine, right?” is funny.
I don’t. Well, here’s to waiting! *takes a seat*
