clec : Yes he did hug me and reassure me but actions speak louder than words
hbraerae : I stated the June date although in my head I would like it to be sooner than that as we have some family gatherings coming up and I can’t deal with the teasing and questions from them as to why we aren’t engaged yet
I know that I need to put faith in him and leave it alone but I just want to be engaged to him dammit and start the next chapter of our lives 🙁 If I were a man I would have proposed MONTHS ago!!

claireb87 : I know it doesn’t seem to be common here on WB to date for so long before getting married, but we got together young and we had a lot of growing up to do. We went the custom ring route too with a local jewler. I know he has the ring and a plan. Unfortunately, two of our dogs have needed 3 knee surgeries over the last 2 months so it’s backed up his plan a little bit which I understand. It’s been a little stressful taking care of the dogs and trying to find a special moment where we can both relax has been challenging. Good luck to you! Hopefully, May is a good month for everyone!

princesspeach89 : I’m not usually one of those that thinks a person should quietly fester about something, but in this case I think you need to let it go for a little while.
You gave him until June, but you’re admittedly bringing it up constantly and getting upset because he’s not doing it sooner. If you didn’t want to wait til June you shouldn’t have said June. I don’t normally think men can be “nagged” out of proposing, but I can see how your bf could be getting aggravated.
I know you’re anxious and feel like you’ve been waiting forever, but you only started discussing marriage last year. Is it possible that he’s stringing you along? Yes, it is. If June comes and still no proposal: leave!

I know but you have to leave him alone until agreed time. Im waiting too so i know how you feel.
men are notorious for being lazy and slow and being a bit of a… duhhhhh lol. There arent very many men who feel about engagement like we do, maybe because they dont get a pretty ring.
Hang in there and dont kill anyone haha
