create some goals for yourself and get busy completely them- that is the only way to keep from thinking about it.

I agree, stay busy! Guys don’t understand what it is like to ‘wait’ for an engagement so just be patient with him. Maybe he is waiting for something special, or to save up for the ring. Don’t pressure him, just let things happen on their own. It will make it much more memorable and special.

@syounger4: Maybe have a serious discussion about it and dont make him tell you exactly when it is going to happen or anything but stress it to him that you would like to know of his timeline and if his timelime doesnt work for you maybe you can compromise on one together, then let him take it from there, but it wasnt fair to take you ring shopping in mid January if nothing was going to happen and all he was goingt o say is “soon enough” On the other hand how do you know he hasnt already bought it and he is just waiting for the perfect moment to propose?

Some days I wish guys knew the power of words such as “soon” or “this year” or “make sure you wear something nice,” etc. Granted, we need those words to know things are moving. But they are a double edge sword. I know I replied to someone else, and like everyone else, I basically just said keep busy. Honestly, the last couple weeks, being on this site has kept me from thinking about things too obsessively. Wink I read and read and read and read and, well, you get the point. But I get it all out and when I’m done, it’s no longer on my brain. At least till the next day. 

Very exciting news though!

I totally see where you are coming from, I’ve been exactly the same way recently. I say, when that happens, take a couple of deep breaths, and just really enjoy where you are right now, and how great it is to be in that position that it’s going to happen. Doing that has really helped me just enjoy the little things that are great in my life.

This was posted 2 years ago – so you will be together 7 or more years now. If you still get these replies: please tell us if he did end up proposing!!
Or if not, how you’re going or whether you ended it.

Thanks 🙂
