hey all! i’m cheryl, and i just joined.
i stumbled upon the site randomly, and pretty much i’ve become addicted. i have been hardly able to do anything else than read up haha.
basically my bf and i have been dating for a little under 2 years, and now it’s just waiting for that ‘plan’ that he seems to have, but won’t tell me anything about. i’m sort of an impatient person, so i’m really trying not to pressure him.
he knows the ring i like (i saw it on a lunch break once at work, and i got so excited i just had to show it to him. i know he’s been to look at it a few times, because i thought they took it off display, and he told me that when he was there, he found it again).
the only thing is he’s already told me that he’s not looking for a longer engagement, because in his mind once you’re engaged you get married shortly after that. not at all what i imagined, so now i’m probably going to be waiting until the end of summer of after before i actually get the ring. sigh.
but that’s my introduction! looking forward to meeting you all and celebrating your weddings with you guys.
much love !

Welcome!!! I’m pretty much addicted to the site too now lol. I’m also waiting. What do you think he means by long? I know of people with like 2 year engagements, to me that’s long, but I think a year or a little over a year is good, so you never know if he might propose soon! If your engagement is too short, you dont realize how stressful it is when things are booked up. I thought I didnt want a long engagement either, until my friends keep telling me that venues are completely booked up for fall 2011…… so you might want to casually mention that to him if it’s something you worry about and if you do have a certain time frame in mind of when you want to get married. Hoping for a proposal for you soon, it’s hard waiting!!!

Welcome to WB! Just make sure that your bf gives you guys enough time to plan when you do get engaged! FH and I ended up shortening our 18 month engagement to 9 months and I nearly flipped out when we first decided that – I think I ran around like a headless chicken booking all my vendors and my venue before I felt like I had a grip on things again! 🙂

Welcome. Since you might have a shot engagement it’s a good idea to start getting ideas now!
