Welcome to the hive!  I’m from Center NJ and my husband is a teacher in PA.  Like you guys, we are a weekend couple and we talk on the phone during the week.  Unfortunately, he is two and a half hours away and I can’t live with him until I can find a decent paying job near him. I’ve never tried engagement chicken, so I could not attest to how well it works.  Please keep us updated and I hope all goes well!

Welcome to Wedding bee! You should add you name to the waiting list!

It sounds like you two had a good talk about your future together. I think it’s most important to know where the relationship stands so that both people have accurate expectations. Even if the engagement chicken doesn’t work right away, it might get some gears moving in your guy’s head.

Also, have to ever looked at the book “His Cold feet”? It seems like your guy has some concerns about marriage and that book helps go through the different worries guys have and how we women can talk about them and help “soothe” our boyfriends fears instead of making an engagement & marriage more frightening through our exuberance.

Welcome! The e-chicken is awesome. I added a dry-brine of salt, pepper and lemon zest. And some rosemary inside the cavity.

Good luck 🙂

I made the E-chicken about a month ago and it certainly didn’t induce an automactic proposal. But it kind of gave me the courage to start asking about engagement to find out if we were on the same page. Turns out he’d been thinking about it too and had started saving for a ring, so the whole E-chicken weekend I was pretty elated.

Oh yeah I modified the recipe by putting seasonings under the skin on the breast side since neither of us like the skin.

You can add your name to the list here:

The Waiting & Engaged Lists – 9/12/10

It’s just a weekly list of who is waiting on their ring. You can see your name move up the list each week and feel closer to a proposal!

@lalalalinzii:

We talk a few times throughout the day.  We tell each other details about our day, so there’s more of a personal connection as opposed to just talking and saying “hi, bye”.  It is tough, but what helps me get through the week is looking forward to the weekends.  We’ve been a long distance couple since April of 2007, so we’re used to it by now.  I’m currently looking for a job in his area, but have found nothing as of yet.

I just realized that I typed “center” instead of “central” in my post yesterday.  I must have been really tired…

@lalalalinzii: Oh god, I just realized don’t take my e-chicken advice! I forgot I have to be careful responding to these types of threads since Boyfriend or Best Friend and I broke up on Friday.

Leave out the rosemary, LOL!

It seems like you guys are not on the same page. You are ready for the next step in the relationship while he has yet to accomplish certain goals for himself, once those goals are completed the next relationship step will happened. While he stated that he wanted to work things out, it seems to me that he is still on the same step. My question for you is are you willing to wait until he gets to where you are in the relationship?
