I’m a new waiting bee and I have no idea when my boyfriend is going to propose! I was really hoping it was going to be on our anniversary or on Christmas but he has confirm that will not be happening at those times. 🙁
So I’m going a little crazy and have engagement on my mind and bothering my boyfriend a lot about it. This seems like a great place to help get the craziness off mind!!
Looking forward to all the stories ! 🙂

Welcome to the board! I know that crazy feeling. Maybe it’s almost a blessing he has confirmed it won’t be these holidays, so you can relax and enjoy the festivities? (Or maybe he’s throwing you off on purpose?) 😉

Oh goodness I just don’t know. Yesterday we had a talk and this time SO said it might be a maybe for the middle of december to late december. But of course with the way I am, that isn’t good enough!!! It was good enough when he said maybe, but when im sitting here at my desk at work my mind is going crazy. Like what if his credit isn’t good enough to fiance the ring? Or what if he doesn’t order it early enough? Orrrr he just forgets too!!!!! :0
I want a definite yes, which I know I won’t get. I’m such a planner and hate not really knowing what’s going on. I really need to back off thou and stop pushing the discussion on him except for tonight lol.
One thing I do have to say that is extrememly heart warming is that he gets extrememly excited when we talk about getting engaged and married. We decided how long we are going to wait to get married after the engagment. The type of wedding and reception we want. And how we want to get the house we have been saving for after our engagment but before the wedding. Then have kids after were married. He was like glowing last night when we were talking about it.
His business (landscaping) is running slow right now due to winter. So he isn’t making the large bills he makes during the spring and summer. He’s hoping to save up enough money in the next couple weeks for the down payment.
Oh and we have already pick out a ring too!
I guess i’m lucky enough for what I have going on!

Girl, relax! It’s entirely possible he already HAS the ring, and is just trying to throw you off! It sounds like you two are truly committed, so you know its coming! Just try to enjoy these moments. It IS the last time you’ll get to Christmas shop for your BOYFRIEND!

I’ve been doing my best to relax too. My bf has told me several times he will not be propsosing during “engagement season”, but yesterday I snoopedd (oops) and found out that the stone he had his eye on is gone from the website…EEPPPP!
We went on vacation last month, and I really thought it was going to happen, but I somehow managed to get it off my mind for the week and just enjoy the time spent together. Good thing, because it didn’t happen, but we had a WONDERFUL vacation! I hope you have a great time too!

I wouldn’t say you’re lucky
(because I’m sure you’ve put a lot of time and effort into your relationship and deserve to be at the place you’re at now with your SO) but it’s true that you are in a very good place! You should try to enjoy that as much as possible. I know you’re excited and want it to be official
but it will be soon, it seems. It definitely sounds like he’s 100% on board and as interested in making it happen as you are. It’s just a matter of time! Try to keep your mind on how far you’ve come in your relationship rather than how far you still have to go. That helps me a lot!

I know the feeling well!!! I had some freak out moments and was very impatient. I wanted and expected it to happen before it did but looking back it happened at the perfect time. My fiance owns a landscaping business as well and I know how things can get so slow in the rain and coldER months. I decided to make things easy on him and choose an affordable ring. He gave me a higher budget but I found a custom ring I loved on Etsy that I knew he could afford and his credit wouldn’t be an issue because he could pay cash. He had the ring for about 6 weeks or more before he proposed. I had to have some talks with him and make sure it was going to happen sometime soon though- I’m 37 and I didn’t want to waste my time in a relationship that wasn’t going to head that direction.

It sounds like you guys have everything all planned! Congratulations! Try not to hassle him about it–it sounds like he’s really excited about everything and probably doesn’t want to give you more specific details because he wants it to be a surprise. 🙂
