Hey girls.this is so surreal! i was a lurker for a coupla weeks but now im coming out to you all because i am 100% sure my boyfriend will be proposing to me. its wonderful to know and i am walking on air but ofcourse he gave me that elusive date of “soon” and knowing that the ring is “taken care of”. so now i am completely bursting at the seams with excitiment and impatience and i figure the only place i can really discuss my knowledge of this information safely and as obsessively as id like to is here on these boards.
i have two big events coming up which could be IT. one is an anniversary on May 22nd and the other is my 33rd birthday on June 8th. i know it’s not wise for a girl to get her hopes up about special dates but who can help it. i am doing my best to not plan for it and build expectations. just trying to enjoy knowing its coming “SOON” hehehe
But who are we kidding. soon cant come soon enough and i will be a little bummed if those days come and go and nada but i will soldier through and be a good appreciative girl to my man.
Also he has asked me several times recently what i want for my birthday and he even grilled me about it and told me to be more specific yesterday so i gave him some ideas despite my feelings that id like the engagement to him more than any other present or activity. I am looking on the brightside that if it’s not those dates then at least i get to enjoy what we do and the little presents i get in addition to the proposal when it comes.
Anyway, sorry its so long ladies. Please give me any advice or encouragement you have. you are the only ones i can really chat with about this heheheh. thanks! 🙂

thanks for the sweet words ladies. im really excited but its a also hard for me to sleep and hard for me to contin myself. I cant wait! its never been my strong suit.
i love my bf sooo much. and additionally id like to say that im a total catch and he will be lucky to have me as well. This goes out to all those other girls who are waiting too. Dont lose sight of your own value and remember that he is VERY lucky to win you if he does and it will be his loss if he doesn’t. Anyone who believes in love and wants marriage and loves themselves will find love and happiness so long as they keep faith in THEMSELVES and do not ever settle. My ex would have been settling. he married the next girl he date 6 mos after we broke up and i was hurt at the time but praise the lord it wasn’t me because my current man loves the true me and is someone i held out for and always dreamed id find. It’s out there! believe me! I”ll keep you guys posted about my obsessing and ofcourse i will let you know if any of my occasions hit the mark.

I hope it’s soon! This is the best place to obsess because we usually all feel the same way!

Good luck! My best advice is to keep completely quiet about it and protend that you forgot about getting engaged. Guys like you to be suprised when it happens and don’t want you to think that it is coming.

Oh my goodness! I’ve been really good about keeping my mouth shut and not mentioning anything related to marriage or engagements but my god the anticipation is killing me!
My beloved has been very sweet and loving and continues to act like he did when we first started dating. Its very encouraging.
I looked on the calender and its just over a week to anny and just under 4 weeks till birthday. We shall see we shall see! This is making me so excitied but also soooo gonzo!!!!

I’m right there with you. I’m so antsy to start this new phase in our lives. Granted, I know we can’t move in together or get married for another year and half. But I’m so antsy to start planning!

Yeah its also nice because we can talk about it with empathy. Friends mean well but they can either be too judgmental and pessimistic or too big mouthed and cart-before-the-horse eager (god bless them).
I love that we can just be huge dorks and goobers about how bad we want it. People judge women who are excited for marriage (especially in nyc) but I think its sweet. Romantic so long as its based in true love.
I feel so much for my fellow girls in waiting and so happy for the ones who finally saw a wish come true!
I hope our turn is next!

It’s hard to enjoy the anticipation. I hope that in the future I will look back and be glad I was so excited!
