It is so hard.  My SO hasn’t said it exactly like that, but basically he’s informed me to just lay off for five minutes and it will happen.  I want to scream at him that it must be easy to be so relaxed when you’re in control.  Ahhh, I wish I had better advice, but at least you can know you’re not alone. πŸ™‚

If anyone knows what you are feeling, that would be me! lol. My now fiance’ and I have been together for 4 years and believe me, once you know that the time is coming, it makes waiting that much more great. How about we picked out a ring, had it sized, picked it up after the sizing, and he still waited over a week to propose. I was going NUTS waiting, but I knew he was serious about doing it, and he wanted it to be right. Try to occupy your mind and daily activities with something you like to do; maybe going out with your girlfriends and spend the day at the mall and catch up on what’s been going on with them. Take up a new hobby or exercise class. Trust me, once he finally proposes, this phase will have been worth the waiting. I know exactly how you feel, and some days, it just wasnt pretty…. lol. But, the more I tried to occupy myself and thoughts with other things, it made it a little easier. Just try it and see if it helps. Best of luck to you!

I haven’t had my guy say that to me. But I can see how that would drive you nuts. πŸ™‚ But I’m like that with any surprise. The second I know there is something going on in the background I go into hyper-drive trying to figure out what it is, to my detriment. It’s so adorable he has it planned. I love it when people put time into planning. Very exciting though. Good luck! πŸ™‚

I’ve been involved with the ring (went ring shopping and he had me email him pics of ones that I liked but nothing has been purchased, that I know of)  but it still is hard to wait when you know it’s coming. I would die if I knew for sure he had it already and stilll was waiting for him to propose. Give him a bit longer, it sounds like he has a plan in mind already and it could be sooner than you think πŸ™‚

Oh, and I agree that it makes me anxious to think how’s he going to do it as well. Guys have so much control in this process and we just have to be patient and wait it out. If they only knew what it did to us….lol

It’s a good thing to know that he is planning something, and knowing that certain things are taking place. Don’t agonize, this is a very happy moment for you! You KNOW that he’s thinking of the proposal, a ring, and making it all special. Relax, and take this time to enjoy the relationship. My SO told me the month, the day, and the ring he’s planning on proposing with, and THAT makes things soo much harder, and time seems to slow down!
