If I can give one word of advice…be patient. I wasn’t and questioned everyone everyday about when it was coming. I would have hated to be on of my friends during that time. Wait and be surprised and enjoy it. I wish I had.

He said December first, huh?  I bet he’ll do it close to your anniversary.  Don’t worry, it will happen!  Your guy has been open to talking about it and picking out rings, so you can relax and know he’s planning something very special πŸ™‚

After dating for just over 3 years (and living together during the third year), my Fiance proposed this past weekend in Jamaica (eeeeee! πŸ™‚ )  A couple of weeks before our trip, Fiance asked what kind of rings/stones I liked.  A couple of days before the trip, he texted me to ask what ring size I wore.  Other than the first discussion about rings and the subsequent text messaage, I *never* brought up the ring/when?/engagement stuff, and let him surprise me.  And he did!

Not saying/asking him anything was  reeeeeeeally tough, but I am so so so glad that I bit my tongue and waited (the Hive was a wonderful outlet for me! – thanks ladies!!!).  It was worth every last tooth imprint in my tongue to see how happy he was to do it his way, on his own time, without any pressure from me.

I know it’s not easy, but all the fabulous ladies here will help keep you sane – good luck doll!

Firstly… you are a very lucky girl to find the man of your dreams πŸ™‚

Secondly, that ring is GORGEOUS!

And Third… it can be slightly disappointing when the men slip up (they don’t seem to know much about keeping secrets do they?? LOL) Mine did the same thing, he dropped waaaay too many hints.. but i was still speechless when he proposed to me, even though I knew it was going to happen! lol


Just sit back and enjoy yourself, you’re young and it’ll all happen for you in due time!


best wishes! xoxo

I know it is hard to be patient, but at least you know he is going to propose!  I thought I knew it was coming, when in Feb ’08 we ‘decided’ to get married the next valentines day…imagine my surprised when we weren’t engaged by summer…needless to say a TON of fights started up, and I thought he’d propose over the 4th of July, when we went to my parents house (who were offering him diamonds…)  anywho, as you can see, I’m NOW married, but my lack of patience, and his lack of proposing for 6 mos ended up being a yucky period of our rel’nship, so I hope you can enjoy the waiting as much as possible!

Congrats girl! I love your story about how you and your bf knew each other forever. It kinda reminds me of my story because my bf lived down the street from my grandfather all his life, we went to the same church congress during the summer for years (he noticed me then), but we didn’t meet until we were 17. We have been together ever since and he has slipped up and told me that he would propose by Christmas.

That is still a long time from now (well at least to me), but I am just so happy that the wait is almost over and I will be one step closer to being his wife. At least We are blessed to have men that love us, on the same page with us, and want to marry us.

That’s a really sweet story. I’ve known my boy forever too, which people think is weird because he’s 5 years older than me. But whatever, we’re happy. πŸ™‚

I’ve been obsessed and a lurker for a while too, and recently started posting. I check Weddingbee WAY too many times a day.
