@emmalyn:  It has been 3 years. I believe you are well within your rights to at least bring it up.  I am more a blunt type of person. “a close mouth won’t get fed” sometimes you have to let a person know your intentions.  

With my significant other, luckily he is the one to bring up marriage ALL the TIME! So it was a bit easy for me. best of LUCK

@emmalyn:  I’m also going to talk to my SO, and am waiting until after V-day too, since we met the weekend after the holiday 4 years ago and I think that would be about the right timing to see where he’s at.

I posted on here in Waiting a week or two ago, talking about something my SO said that sounded like a sign to me, and one bee replied saying “it might be closer than you think! That sounds like what my SO was doing when he’d already bought the ring!” Which made me super excited to think that was a possibilty. I don’t think that’s the case, but thinking that it could be made me so giddy I actually felt nauseous for an hour or so. I REALLY hate waiting too!

Hm, keep up posted about what happens with you :). Best of luck!

@emmalyn:  Here is the link: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/um-what-funny-slips-of-the-tongue

Now, I am inclined to suspect that some of the assumptions in this thread are wrong and he’s not actually DOING anything to get ready for an engagement, except probably inside his own head. He mostly seems nonverbal and a little grumpy when I hint lately. Maybe it’s just getting to be too much; sometimes I can’t control my mouth and I say things when I know I shouldn’t have. Blahhh! 2 more weeks until the anniversary of when we met 4 years ago. . . after that I’ve got to talk to him about it, unless he (miraculously) brings it up himself before then, which I don’t think he’s going to do.

@emmalyn:  I am going to attempt to actually succeed at the “shut it up” thing for the next 2 weeks. It’s really hard when it’s on my mind so much, though!

@emmalyn:  “96% sure”  LOL  How did you come up with that number?  Too funny!

I agree with the Shut It Up plan.  Good luck!
