Well, her comments were irritating and pretty much uncalled for. I wouldn’t feel too great about them either!

I’m sorry to hear that. She was just trying to be friendly, but I understand your jealousy.

I wish more waiting bees who feel this way would just speak to their SO about marriage. Have you done that? (Sorry if you did, I don’t know your whole story)

he bought the ring!!  that is great news.  You should have told her, I know he has the ring, so I’m just waiting for the proposal.  Being jealous is hard to get over, but just think, soon you will be planning your own wedding!!

I’m sorry for your co-worker’s comments.  Situations like these can be so frustrating.  It’s really no business of hers why you’re not engaged any way. 

DO NOT FEEL STUPID!  You have taken the time to really get to know your SO before taking that next step, and there is nothing wrong with that. You should be PROUD of yourself for being so patient. 

Everyone has a very different situation AND timeline.  You know your SO has your ring, so you know a proposal is in store.  Let him have his moment to propose the way he has planned.  When you finally get your proposal, it will have been very much worth the wait!

@sherryberry:  You do! I was dating my Fiance for 5 years as well so I know the feeling.  You start to wonder what the other women have you don’t, why your SO is waiting so long and sometimes people can make you feel stupid because you’re waiting.  BUT, looking back, we waited until it was the perfect time instead of rushing like everyone else.  A lasting relationship has to have a foundation and it sounds like yours does.  Be proud!

Awww **hugs** I totally have been in your shoes. About a year and half ago a coworker got engaged and they had only been together under two years and I was at 5.5 years with my guy at the time. It sucked so much having to hear every little detail all the time. I eventually got over it but it hurt a lot. I think her comments were uncalled for and she should have been a bit more sensitive to your situation.

At least your guy has the ring how exciting!!! Hope we get to read your proposal soon!!!
