I’ve been looking around WeddingBee for a couple of weeks, and just recently entered the category of “in waiting.” Boyfriend or Best Friend is super secretive about EVERYTHING, but has definitely started shopping around for rings and has told me it will be sometime in 2012 (which obviously leaves an impatient/antsy girl like myself on constant high alert).
I’m very excited to be joining the ranks of the engaged soon, but in the meantime… who else was as impatient as I currently am? Especially with a stubborn Boyfriend or Best Friend who refuses to give me any sort of timeline other than “you will have a ring way before the New Year”?
I love reading everyone’s stories so please share 🙂

Welcome Missy! // I don’t have much of a story. Little sister told me that my bf asked her to help him pick out a ring around Thanksgiving and that’s about it. I have no clue when and where it will happen either. I was freaking out like a nut around Christmas and New Year’s but now that the holidays have passed, I don’t think it’ll happen soon. Oh well!

Welcome! I am also a hyper on alert person. SO and I have been planning for a late summer/early fall ceremony…but no proposal yet!

Welcome to the hive!! I officially started waiting in August when we went ring shopping. Once I picked out my beauty he promised that’s the one I get, but the where, when and how was up to him. I am still patiently waiting. Over xmas he confessed he has the ring and that the proposal will be a surprise but it will be soon. I’m glad he’s filling me in, but it’s torture too because I just want it already!!! 🙂
Your SO sounds very sweet though. Sounds like he wants it to be a fantastic surprise!!

Welcome! My guy refuses to give any timeline other than “when we move to the same city.” Since that is dependent on when he gets a new job, there is no defininte time horizon. So I can relate to your impatience! Hopefully he will ask you earlier in 2012 to surprise you!

Welcome to the waiting boards! I’m also going to be engaged “sometime” this year. But I think it will likely be this spring. My boyfriend has mentioned that it will happen “in the next six months.” But who knows! I DO know that he has purchased a ring though! It’s very tough to wait, especially when you know that it could happen anytime in the next year or the next few months. Who knows when or how! Personally, I can’t wait to see what ring he chose for me!

I’m with you girl! SO and I went to look at settings about a month and a half ago and I overheard him telling someone he’s planning a “warm weather”/ spring proposal. It’s killing me but I’m so excited! Enjoy the waiting period… we don’t have to completely stress about planning just yet. Looking forward to eventually seeing your proposal story! 😉

Ahh waiting, so frustrating. Apparently I should have a sparkly left hand in the next few months, but who knows?
Hopefully your man will get down on one knee soon. Best of luck!

@ashleighxcult: welcome to the hive! I’m in the same boat as you. I don’t know if he has bought the ring yet but he did get a recent bonus at work so I’m hoping that will help move things along .
I was so frustrated and impatient over the last few months as we had our anniversary, my birthday, Christmas and New Year…. and nothing happened! For now, I’m feeling calm but I do find the hive helps when I need to have the occasional rant!

Thanks for all the great responses, ladies! So glad to know that I’m not the only one who’s going crazy 😉
Boyfriend or Best Friend surprised me last Friday and took me to try on rings and I found THE ONE. He’s still playing coy, but I can sort of tell he’s set on that one too! I’m definitely looking forward to reading all your updates across the boards, and hopefully posting more of my own!
