well we are now approaching end of summer and I have some crazy high anxiety. I thought I would be engaged this summer but it’s not looking too good. SO and I are going to a music festival this weekend and a couple people keep telling me they think its going to happen then. I am about 99% sure it will not though…and I am just as sure that he doesn’t even have a ring. I wish people would stop saying that so I don’t feel so stressed an anxious that it won’t happen.
I think I’m having a quarter like crisis…I’m freaking out…I’m so sick of waiting….

@UmakeURownLUCK: This is why I stopped telling people my business, because everytime I said that J and I were going somewhere or doing something, that was the FIRST thing that they said: “Maybe he’ll propose!”.
No one in my family or in our circle of friends know that we’re going to England next week. The only people who DO know are the ones that matter: My parents, and my brother and sister-in-law so they can take care of my cats while we’re away.
I know what you mean though… Sometimes you just feel so exhausted from waiting (emotionally, mentally, etc). I don’t know how we do it some days.

I agree. Just don’t tell anyone ANYTHING. My SO did something very out of character and booked a room at a fabulous hotel in Boston and made reservations at a famous sushi restaurant. He surprised me with the details via email the day before. After I read it, I went to a meeting with my colleagues and I was so excited that I said “I really think he’s going to propose..” It was two years into our relationship and it was SOOO out of character (Did I mention it was Valentine’s Day and he hates doing anything for it?) that I was certain it was happening… Siiiiiigh.
That was two years ago. I came back to the sympathetic sideways head tilt when people saw I didn’t have a ring. SOOOO embarassing.
