- Wedding: August 2013
Hi all I am new here and I’m waiting. I have been waiting a while, we have been together 4 years but we picked out a ring and he had me choose a diamond 6 months ago. I accidently saw the credit card statement that showed a purchase at the jewelry store we picked the ring out at but he doesn’t know this. It is driving me crazy that it has been so long and nothing.
I’ve had literally every one of my friends get engaged, married and or have a baby in the last year so it is really starting to get to me that he is taking his sweet ass time about it. I am not gettin any younger, will be 34 this year, and I am ready to settle down and do the house and kid thing.
I think the thing that is making me anxious and a bit angry if I am honest is that when we looked at rings and talked about getting married I told him SPECIFICALLY that I would like to get married in Sept. 2012 and would need at least 6-9 months to not only plan but to give our guests a heads up because we want a destination wedding. I told him if this isn’t where he was time wise to let me know so that i don’t get it in my head that this will happen. he told me don’t worry you will have plenty of time. That was Sept and then again in Dec of 2011…here we are in March and well I think time is starting to run out. Anyhow I’m hoping that I won’t be waiting too much longer and that maybe reading some similar stories and advice on here will help keep me sane. Sorry for the looooonnnggg post!
