Wow, that’s a long time to be waiting! I’ve only been waiting four months and feel like I want to pull my hair out some days. You are an infinitely more paitent person than I am. 

I’m sorry it’s so hard. I’m also jealous of you though because you get to travel which is something I’ve never had the chance to do. The first big trip for me will be Alaska for our honeymoon next August. I’m blessed to live in a beautiful state that I love exploring but it doesn’t quite compare to traveling. 

Good luck and I hope he doesn’t keep getting your hopes up!

@MissComicBook:  Trust me I understand! My SO kept showing me jewlery store cards whenever he came back from them. OVER A YEAR AND A HALF AGO this started. Then one day he comes home, I was in a bad mood, And he said I FOUND THE RING I WANT TO GET YOU. Still nothing. He wants to save up for it, but spends all his money on his motorcycle and his truck. UGH

  I wish there was a bar for waiting girls so I can go there and VENT ! lol

  Good luck waiting and maybe he will propose on one of the trips!!!

It’s your engagement and your wedding, too. If being engaged sooner is more important than the ring, sacrifice the ring. Or propose to him. You are in control of this if you want to be.

@MissComicBook:  men can be very cruel, we enjoy travelling as well, which is prob why we’re not engaged yet. But, you’ve got dreams as well and their important. i hope you get through to him

A watched pot never boils, my dear. Put your focus and your energies on other things, and let it happen when it happens. 

When he sees your attention going to other things, he may relax and find he’s ready.

@MissComicBook:  Hahah, LOVE your bee name! 

Ah yes, some days I literally sit in my bathtub after eating 1/4 a gallon of ice cream and cry because I think there’s something wrong with me but mostly, I know that it will come. And when it does I will cry, tears of JOY not sadness. 

So I’m just going to cry either way! 🙂

Ahh its so depressing some days isnt it!! Try knowing that your boyfriend had 10x the amount needed in his bank account to buy you a ring, but that still didnt make a difference!! They just need the time to do things their way and you do have to trust them – annoying as it is!

Ughh I always get the “trust me” response too!.. I’d love to if only I didn’t think it was just a stall tactic since I’m pretty sure he has nothing in the works.. And I’ve been waiting over a year and a half so I know how you feel 🙁
