Well, my birthday was today (11/8) and while I knew that a proposal wasn’t happening, I still feel disappointed for some reason. He gave me something very thoughtful and personal to us, but I still wished that it would have been a ring instead. We talked a couple days ago and he said that my birthday was too obvious because he wanted to surprise me and not know when it was coming. I asked him if it at least would still be happening this year, and he said he hopes so but if not, it will be early next year. Needless to say, that bummed me out a bit since we had agreed on it happening this year for sure but I do understand if he needs a bit more time to save up for a ring.
Top that off, after my parents and I dropped him off from having dinner (we all went to a restaurant out by his place and it made more sense to just pick him up on the way) my mom comments like “so no ring huh?” Thanks mom for rubbing salt in the wound:(
Not really looking for any advice here, but a little encouragement would be appreciated.

Happy Birthday! I can understand being a little sad even though you knew it probably wouldn’t happen today. That’s happened to me, too. But, the good news is that your engagement IS coming soon which is SO awesome!

Well first off, happy birthday! And whilst it is understandably disheartening, just try to remember that at least the two of you are on the same page and want to marry each other, that he is saving up for a ring and the a proposal is coming 🙂

Please relax in the knowledge the proposal IS coming. 🙂

Happy Birthday! Don’t worry, it will come. Through the rain comes sunshine.. even if it’s hard to believe. Just be patient.

Happy birthday! My SO is the same – says he won’t propose on a special occasion because he doesn’t want to make the occasion about engagement – wants to celebrate it for what it is. Totally understand though. My mum keeps asking me why it hasn’t happened yet.

Happy Late Birthday!
I remember that feeling. It used to hurt so badly. He always said he wouldn’t do it on a birthday/holiday because it would be like he didn’t want to buy a gift, haha! It sounds like you only have a few more months!!

Sorry you didn’t get your proposal yet…but it sounds like it is just around the corner. I am in a similar boat becasue my SO had pretty much assured me mid year that we would be engaged by the end of the year….now it might not be until the begining of 2012 (we had to spend an unexpected $1500 on and unforseen expense). So of course I understand the delay but…ARG! It still may happen for us by the end of the year! ((hugs))

He’s probably trying to make the proposal a surprise and your birthday may have been too obvious. It’s probably just around the corner! 🙂
