HI! This is my first post and I can’t wait to get more involved here. I have been with my SO for 7 years (!) and we have talked about getting married a few times but I am still waiting. We went through a rough patch in our relationship and nearly broke up & moved out (we’ve lived together for a while). Now, thankfully, we are in a great place in our relationship and are really happy.
He started to bring up our future and marriage a few months ago and we even went to look at e-rings together so he would know what I liked. He told me that we would be engaged by the end of 2012.
The problem is that now I am totally obsessed with everything wedding related. My pinterest is brimming w/ wedding pins and I even bought a few bridal mags. I swear it’s like all I can think about. I wish it would just happen already! Anyone else in the same boat?
I hope posting on here will give me an outlet for my wedding mania. I’m trying not to bring it up too much to my SO but it’s so hard!

@BelleFille: Mine took 8 years and I didn’t even know it was coming! We also talked about our future a lot but I wasn’t exactly sure when he was going to pop the question.
Your time will come, he’s probably just waiting for the right moment 🙂

how exciting for you! and i totally understand what you mean. SO and i started talking seriously about getting engaged earlier than i expected, and we pretty much went straight into action (discussing rings etc) and he gave me a rough idea of when he will propose (soon!!!). it was as if some weird button had been pressed in me – i’ve never been into going gaga about weddings or any of that, and yet here i am on WB and regularly reading wedding blogs! it’s not even so much that i’m dreaming about my own (i would ideally have a very small one), but just simply immersing myself in this stage of life! it’s too much fun 🙂

I totally know what you’re going through! Darling Husband told me he would propose after we’d lived together for a bit, so basically the second we moved in together I was soooo ready. I did browse some wedding sites, but resisted buying magazines or anything till I actually had the ring. Although I may have taken it out of it’s hiding spot every day when he wasn’t home and tried it on, haha! But forewarning: some people it helps to be on here, they vent to us instead of their SO…but it can also just make you more impatient when you see a whole bunch of other people planning.

Welcome! I know EXACTLY how you’re feeling. I just recently got engaged but it took him 9 years to propose! To be fair, we started dating when I was a junior in high school so marrige wasn’t on our minds for the first few years… Anyway, it’s exciting that your Boyfriend or Best Friend is talking about marriage seriously with you and you looked at rings. Try to be patient with him, he’s probably just waiting for the perfect moment. Good luck!
