Just wanted to say a huge CONGRATS to you Bee!!! What a wonderful thing and I am so glad it finally happened for you πŸ™‚

I am in a similar situation (not as long relationship) but in my own experience and reading other posts…I think men just have this weird thing about having things just so. Even when we say we just want the ring we don’t care if it’s $200 or $2000! And it’s tough not really being in control of the situation as women because men are seen as the ones to make the proposal happen. Even when the realtionship is great otherwise, waiting can put such a damper on things. 

Again congrats I hope you guys continue to have a wonderful happy life together πŸ™‚

My fiancee didnt propose until the day before our 8 yr anniversary. For him he was fully committed but scared of the official step. 

It’s a tough spot to be in and it doesnt help there is so much conflicting information that muddy the waters.

My advice is to hold on if you truly feel he is the one- trust your intuition.

Good luck and I hope all turns out well!

I think  you just need to tell him straight out, that you are 100 perecent ready and excited to marry him. 

 

You have talked about it, but only in possibles, maybes and the fantastical . 

 

Just tell him. “You know, I really feel ready to do this with you, what do you think?”

 

Edit: hadn’t read the entire thread. Congrats!!
