Hang in there! You are way more patient than me; I hope things work out for you soon. Has he shown any signs of progress since you brought up the topic (I read some of your posts, but couldn’t tell from that)? At least you know the reason he is taking so long!

YIKES!  SO has got your number BUT good honey!  Why not throw him a curveball tonight and after having a bleh start to the week, take him out for some yummy food and cold beer, go see a nerdy movie and hold hands and share popcorn…put all the engagment craziness out of your mind and give your guy a break…I know it’s hard to wait and your right, 6 years is a long time!  But you’re over the hump babe, have some fun…your SO will thank you!

@stargazer102706:  Ugh! First off breath lol. Go get a punching bag?? LOL. I know this sucks. Waiting is such a shittyyy time, but try ( as much as you can) to see the good things. It helped me alot. I started to go nuts ( my SO’s father got engaged after being with this lady for 1 year to the day, I get it hes older but he JUST lost his wife the year before..WTF!!! end rant lol)

Anyway. Then I realized why would my SO want to propose to a crazy cranky pants b*tch haha. I started to show him why he would want to marry me and the things he loves about me. Things have changed soo much in just the last month. 

  Well I hope I helped at all lol. I know when your waiting nothing any one says helps ( I’m still waiting!) but try to just relax and go out and have a good time. Oh and DELET FACEBOOK! I don’t have one and the only time I found out ‘so and so’ got engaged is when it’s someone super close and they either call me or text me to tell me. WOO lol

I was in the same situation last year. One of my SO and I’s best friends got engaged after knowing the girl for only a year (and she was just out of high school). We never really got off on the right foot because of her previous history with another close male friend of mine. Every time she would talk about the wedding, I would get frustrated because I have been with my SO for 4+ years.

They were married in May and every weekend when we hang out at their house I get this sinking feeling in my stomach because here I am, in college, broke, working my butt off and she is living the dream.

It has taken some time but my SO is finally seeing what I see in her. And even though this situation is really crummy, it has almost strengthened out relationship because I am grateful for everything about him and he has come to appreciate the qualities in me that she does not posess. Hang in there girl! You’ll get to live the dream some time soon!

Good luck – am also in the 30 and over club so I feel you on that, though I’ve not been dating my SO for as long as you. How old is your SO, and do you really believe him when he says he has a plan?

Yesterday wasn’t a good waiting day for me too! I felt like a robot at work just doing things until it was time to leave for the day. I felt that I was going to burst into tears anytime and it was taking so much effort to hold back in. To be honest, what kept me going was reading through the waiting boards. I would have lost it if it weren’t for that tiny browswer in my work computer dedicated to weddingbee. I’ve been with my SO for 6 years too (7 in a couple of months) and I know it is easier said than done but hang in there. There are just days that are more difficult to handle than the rest but we always get through them…eventually.
