Talk to him—- he gave YOU a deadline, not the other way around…. he has enough money for a diamond bracelet but not enough for a ring? I would have wanted the money from the diamond bracelet to go TOWARD the ring. Diamond bracelets aren’t inexpensive….

He couldnt afford the ring he wanted so he got you a diamond bracelet? Girl, sounds like he’s planning to buy the Hope diamond or something. You are very close… but I would have to clarify. Id be so confused and honestly a bit upset if I was you. I dont want a diamond bracelet, I WANNA DIAMOND RING!! Ok, maybe that sounds ungrateful. Good thing your head is in a better place than mine right now πŸ™‚

so let me get this straight, he gave you a timeline of 2011, nothing happened, leaving you to wait further in limbo. you expected a ring and he gave you a bracelet instead?! i dont know how you’ve been able to maintain your composure but i wouldve been pissed! whose to say he wont backtrack on the next future timeline? did you two talk about another timeline??

if i were in your shoes and seen his actions above, i’d think hes getting cold feet on the marriage idea but thats just my take on it. your word is all you got, and so far his word has no action behind it, time to tread carefully here and have another talk on where you two stand.

if he could afford an expensive bracelet he sure as heck can afford to put a ring on it and be realistic, instead of excusing the continued wait with some over the top search for a debt bound ring/perfect proposal. sorry to come off negative, but situations like this frustrate me to no end. i hope this isnt an excuse for him to put things on hold longer and he does the right thing by giving you your long awaited ring! good luck to you.

@MissTX:  SO did the same thing: bought me a super pricey (but very lovely) necklace, I’d rather he’d saved the money.  Men can be so clueless!

A male friend told me he’d planned to propose last year, it’s been on the cards for about 18 months and still no news!  He’s a little nervous bless him.  Talk with you SO.  But it is coming, so try not to fret πŸ™‚

you know what you’re right, we dont know your relationship, and theres totally nothing wrong with venting, ive done so many of times.. occasionally i didnt always get a reaction i wanted to see in response, we can only read what you post from an objective stand point.

you seem to have alot of faith in your guy, naturally so, but even the strongest womens faith would be waivered a bit after a failed deadline. and one thing waiting bees here can unanimously co-sign with is a loathing for failed deadlines and promises, so our reactions might not come across as positive all the time in response to that.

i just dont see how after a timeline came and passed there wasnt a peep about it, or was there? im just curious how the pink elephant in the room could be ignored, but im more of a blunt outspoken person, i wouldntve let that slide easily lol.
