So I know that the engagement is coming within the next few weeks, but apparently that hasn’t stopped me from talking about it.
Last night, for the first time since SO and I started talking about marriage, he said “Would it be okay if we didn’t talk about the proposal/engagement again tonight? It’s all we’ve talked about for five or six months.”
I felt SO embarrassed ! I don’t think I realized just HOW many of our conversations were being monopolized by ring-talk. I think I’m really going to try to cool it for the next little while.
Have any of your SO’s ever had to politely ask you to stop talking about it so much?

Nope 🙂 I just shut it because I don’t want him to think I’m only interested in a ring, I just want to marry him. I have friends who pestered their SO too much and they ended up calling off the engagement. Just relax! This is a very fun part of your relationship! Sit back and wait to be surprised 🙂

- Wedding: July 2017 - Bristol zoo
Boyfriend or Best Friend has said that I bring it up all the time before XD I really don’t! But I’m sure it’s more than I realise as well, maybe girls have this thing where we forget how much it’s talked about but boys have a thing where they feel like it gets talked about more than it is XD

I talk about the wedding to much. Like what we would do and where we’d have it. He’s told me on more than one occasion to hush. We took a trip this weekend and I managed to only make one little mention about having it in a barn, and how I wished he didn’t have allergies. It devolved into a joke about putting him in a bubble, and then in a seperate building and finally, skyping him there. LOL
If it’s killing me and I have to talk about it, I try to find a joking fashion so it’s not all OMG SERIOUS. Cause…yeah, he hates that. LOL

My ring is in our apartment right this minute (betting on a July proposal), and I noticed that it’s a lot easier to stay quiet when you have hints that it’s definitely coming. Since you’ve talked about it so much with your SO, he’s probably had a lot of chances to reassure you that it’s definitely happening. If that is the case, TRUST HIM, and use that trust to zip it up. 🙂 I know it’s a lot harder than it sounds, but you’ll start seeing more action on his part, and guess what, HE will start bringing it up! Good luck!

@MrsNewDay: I agree with you. I know the ring is currently being made (SO can’t keep his mouth shut, Lol) so its easier to not talk about it. I still think about it a lot, mostly because I am a planner. I am one of those waiting bees who accelerated the process by talking about it though, so maybe I’m a bad example. That has a lot to do with our ages though.

My sister’s getting married this summer at our parent’s house, and I’m her Maid/Matron of Honor, so there has naturally been a lot of wedding talk. Can I help it if the talk about her wedding turns into dreaming about mine? 😉
He knows that I have an account on this site, and that I have a folder of ideas on my computer, but I try not to talk about it too much unless he brings it up first (which he actually does!).

all the TIME! I am officially banned from ring talk at this point…

A few months ago – about the time that I joines this site, he would be like “oh, we’re talking about this again.” Since then I have been keeping it quiet unless he brings it up.
I definitely agree that knowing he has the ring side of things sorted makes it easier for me to keep it quiet!

Mine does all the wedding talk and hasnt even proposed yet!!! Ive yet to bring it up unless its a mention of a wedding we’ve been too which is rare. He brings it up several times a week.
If he freaks he’s only got himself to blame and I’ll be mking damn sure he knows it haha!

Yup, my SO does the same… hints about it or mentions it and when I respond he goes quiet. Men are funny.

My ring just arrived today!!! But he doesn’t know that I know it’s here…he made up some excuse to work from home for part of the day today.
It’s going to be very difficult for me not to talk about it!!!!!!
I’m totally going crazy right now!!
The ring isn’t here though…he said he would lock it up at work when it arrived.

My boyfriend and I have a place for the ceremony and reception picked out and jist of a date (last weekend in September or 1st/2nd of October 2014)
He knows that’s helped me relax alot. We can focus on more important things in day to day rather than stressing about the unknown.
