Hey! πŸ˜€ Welcome to the Bee!




I definitely think your signs are looking good! And I think you should head on over and put yourself on the waiting list :3 (if it’s your kinda thing of course XD).




Don’t be afraid to talk to your SO about the possibility of an engagement. You should be able to have an open discussion about future plans without him feeling pressured ^^ And if he does seem like he feels pressured you can leave it for a bit. You seem to be in a good and happy place in your relationship though and that’s lovely to read <3




Wishing you all the best for the future πŸ˜€


Edit: I see you already asked to be put on the list so disregard my suggestion to do as such πŸ˜‰

“We started dating as teens an are now in our 20’s so it wouldn’t really make sense for us to have gotten engaged after a couple years, so the amount of time we’ve been together doesn’t really bother me as far as waiting goes.”


This. You are already ahead of the curve if you realize this!

Welcome! I’m a new waiting Bee too! Well I’ve been silently waiting since last summer and I’m trying to do the shut it up thing now!  I saw all the signs last summer and then nothing!!……. And still waiting!

My signs were: Asking me did he need to ask for my father’s permission. Asking me what I would say if he proposed, and then mock proposing to me on one knee to gauge my reaction. Talking about our wedding size, venues etc! We flicked on a wedding show one night and he hugged me and said “one day soon…”

And guess what?! Nothing! Ha Ha

I approached him about it in November, and he was somewhat shocked that what he had been saying might lead me to believe a proposal was coming soon! MEN! So I’ve said nothing since unless he has raised it first! I don’t know if he’s secretly saving away for a ring and just trying to fob me off until he’s saved enough, or if he’s changed his mind! Very confusing!

You’re doing the right thing anyway…say nothing until he says it! All your signs are very promising! But I defo think men take their time with these things! I hope you get your proposal soon and I do too! But still it’s great to have here to vent on! I’m keeping my waiting very secret bar 2 of my close girlfriends! I don’t want to come across as a nagger beating him up the aisle although sometimes I would like to that!

@VaVaVoomBee:  I have no doubt both of us will! its just a matter of when! its a nice exciting feeling though and its nice to know there are other waiting bees out there just as excited! The poor SO’s they won’t be able to do or say anything wedding related without us thinking proposal! Caught my SO watching Four Weddings the other night
