Welcome to the Hive. 🙂 Always great to see another Michigan Bee! From personal exprerience, I would recommend taking a step back and not getting hung up on a deadline. It sounds like you two have taken serious steps already towards engagement (with ring shopping), and additional pressure may only delay things further.

Enjoy your time together as a couple! Remind him (without mentioning an engagement or weddings) why you’re the amazing woman he fell in love with, and given time the ring will make an appearance. Sometimes the unexpected proposals are the sweetest. 🙂

Best of luck, and I hope to see you crossed off that waiting list soon!

Also, I forgot to add that when it comes down to it, it’s you who knows your relationship best. 🙂 I’ve only had Mr. Tartlet to learn from, and regardless of my persistant wedding bell inquiries–he’d only propose when he was good and ready, darnit!

I would suggest perhaps brining up that he had set that deadline. I personally would be irked if my SO told me a deadline and then didn’t uphold to it and then acted like he never suggested a deadline at all.

It wouldn’t hurt to just bring up the subject and ask him where he stands now. I know it helped me a lot when my SO finally gave me a concrete timeline. It really make it much easier to wait.

@DeathByDesign: I agree- I am not fond of people who say they will do thing, then when it doesn’t happen, don’t address it at all to even apologize. I would bring it up and ask him what happen to the 6 month deadline. Nothing pressuring or anything, just inquiring to what happen to the 6 months he said.

Of course, the better option is to keep quiet on it, if your heart can stand that- but eventually you are going to have to bring it up if he doesn’t make a move to propose- July isn’t too far off which means 6 months could easily turn into a year.

I think you should wait till at least V-day.  Just in case he is planning for then.  If it doesn’t happen then then I would casually bring it up and see what he says.  Looks like you two are on track though.  Good luck!!
