Sending a hug. I’m glad you haven’t let this stop you from being happy for others. Your time will come.

I’m confused. How is your wedding in May 2019 but you aren’t yet engaged? And is this the same individual you claimed you would be done with if he hadn’t proposed by Christmas of 2017? Same person you were posting about 2 years ago that you were waiting on when you had already been together 3 years at that time? wth is the hold up and why are you still waiting?

gagal2016 :  Actually I did read through your previous posts and all I saw were excuses. Which you seem to be willing to accept for the last few years. In order to offer helpful advice I had questions first and needed clarification. But I can see from your defensive response where this is going so never mind.

? I didn’t have to pick a date . . . The Knot made me pick one, but not this site.

heavenlyflower :  Last I checked the point of this site was not to judge each other’s relationships unless that person specifically asks for others perspectives and advice. She didn’t. She asked for a pick me up, which if you’re not happy to give then don’t post?

gagal2016 :  Well done for being so happy for your step-brother. It must have been hard and what you did was mature. Hang in there!

Like heavenlyflower I also read through your previous threads. I do not know the full circumstances around your relationship, but from what you’ve presented on the forums so far I get a strong impression that your boyfriend is stringing you along. Surely he cannot have failed to notice how unhappy you are about not being formally engaged.

 

Please don’t let him string you along any longer. Life is too short.

gagal2016 :  I feel bad for you op, but use these feelings of sadness as a wake up call. You’re playing yourself at this point by continuing to buy your boyfriends excuses and allowing him to be totally in charge of *your* destiny…Good luck op!

I’d like to think that I phrased my post more sensitively than you perceived. However, I do question why you post multiple threads lamenting that you’re not engaged yet if you refuse to do anything about your situation. Whilst I imagine you just want a sounding board in the forum, I understand the other bees when they wonder why you won’t help yourself.

I was just there, I sat my now Fiance down and shared how I felt. Honestly, and all of it. Then I gave it up to God made my deadline and enjoyed life.. What you don’t want is to miss out on the great moments and oppotunities waiting on this one thing. Your season will come and it will be glorious. 

And trust me you wish for it, and when you get it.. it’s stressful.

Hope you get what you want.

gagal2016 :  That is fair enough, Bee 🙂 I just know the pain of being strung along and don’t want to see others go through the same thing. Best wishes!
