Hey I’ll be happy to do it. Unless there is another bee who would prefer to. I’m waiting for a bit on a firm timeline so I can do it for quite some time if needed. Or if there’s another bee who knows their engagement is coming sooner and would like a turn.

Im so sorry to hear that but you are not alone. I myself am sort of in the same boat with a ”moving” timeline and some talks that leave me feeling indifferent about a proposal at the end also. This is our time to focus on ourselves and making us better, healthier, wiser, and HAPPIER. Everything will be ok!

Been there once, realising I am not getting engaged in at least 5 next years broke my heart. Since there was one aditional significant issue, I have left him.

That was three years ago, and only recently I stopped feeling wretched when thinking about it, now I’m just sad for the time I have waisted on someone who wasn’t really in love with me as much as he said he was.

In a short time, I have met a great guy who loves me dearly, but never rushes anything – meaning every decision takes him couple of years – took him 7 years to buy his own place and move out from his parents – and I think if I didn’t have an argument about it with him, he would still hang in his childhood bedroom. It’s been over a year since we moved in together, I have hit thirty… and he’s still taking his sweet time. I have given up waiting for guys. I choose not to marry a guy has let me wait for too long (more than two years after moving in together or  3 years of relationship in total is too long for someone my age, my personal opinion). I will not leave him, since I have no other reason to. But I won’t marry him if this doesn’t happen within next few months.

I’m done, I’m finally done, and I don’t feel bitter about this, I feel like a heavy burden fell of my chest.

What I wanted to say, I know how you feel. I really hope your man will come to his sense and start seeing your values for what they are – a gift for the two of you. And if that doesn’t happen, I really hope you will find peace.
