I just wanted to have a little chat to make sure we are on the same page with this engagement thing happening soon because I’m sorta moving ahead with planning (because we want it to be either August or September of this year) and I said something along the lines of “this is driving me craaaazy” and he said yea, I know, it’s actually pretty funny….
funny? FUNNY? It’s not funny! I mean I guess to him it’s funny to watch me try my hardest to be calm and rational and pleasant about the topic when I want to shake him and be like “just dooooooo it already”
Then I got the impression that he may actually be doing it before the end of January based on the way he laughed during my monologe and then he told me that he wanted to see the dress I found that I really like. SO CONFUSING AND STRESSFUL!!!
ugh **face palm**

You need a Nerf gun to shoot him in the crotch with.
Write his name on the Nerf balls too, while you’re at it. 😉
How long have you guys been discussing marriage/engagement?

@Glasgow777: Nerf gun! yes! haha. Boys don’t get it, they just don’t. I had a conversation with my SO this evening and I told him, simply, that “waiting” is dificult. He said I have nothing to worry about…but guys don’t get that that is not enough to ease a girl’s nerves! Keep breathing…and maybe walk down the nerf gun aisle when you’re out shopping 😉

I tried to explain it and I couldn’t figure out how to do it then while I was laying in bed pondering it I figured it out.
It’s like waiting to hear back after you go to one of those job interviews that went awesome and they “unofficially” said you have the job. You are constantly checking your phone, refreshing your email and just DYING to hear back from them. Unofficially knowing isn’t sufficient in that scenario, and it isn’t in this scenario either.

My SO thinks its funny to see me get “worked up” over something as well. He says things to throw me off all the time. I got tired of that so I act like I’m not trying to figure things out now. Of course I still am, but he doesn’t know that…lol

OHHH I feel your pain!!!my Fiance did the same thing..waited and waited to ask, let me pick out my ring- and still WAITED while we PLANNED.. and he made jokes and jokes and it irked me too bad- and almsot Everyone knew about the ring and the whole “unofficial” engagement 🙁
So one day, after being told from others he was talking of us getting married- …. i printed out a sticker and stuck it to the top of the ring box…. and set the box in his chair so when he came home the box was sayng
” PPSSTTTTTTT Tony, Its dark in here.. can I come out yet?”
He got the hint because less then a week later, at 4am i turned over in my sleep and he was on the side of the bed with the ring in his hand…. At that point my words were “FINALLY!”
Good luck,and dont let him know you are sweating it…. he is most likely enjoying the squirming, which is sad
