hnnhkrk: That all sounds lovely, but it sucks right when all the effort that guys go to go on something else?! Especially when you’re waiting for just that one thing? When talking to friends I’ve tried to not sound like an ungrateful cow when saying ‘he didn’t propose’ whilst on Holiday or whatever… We are grateful, it’s just not we were expecting!! Hang in there! I know it’s hard!
I got a bracelet for my birthday with my birthstone in and he got it hand made. It’s so beautiful, but the fact he bought me handmade jewellery and designed it himself made me somehow feel worse about it?! I kept it in the box and didn’t wear it for a week, trying to spite it! LOL I can be such a loser!

Suzy133: We’re here for you, girl! I assume you and SO have had the timelime talk? It’s rubbish when the proposal seems to take an age, but I guess our guys are worth the wait!

littlesquidge: some people may say WDW is cheesy and cliche but for me and it sounds like you as well, it’s my absolute favourite place and on your birthday as well it just seems right.
i also forgot to say we back to Magic kingdom to watch wishes there a few nights later and I was stupidly excited again, the show finished and nothing, then I turn around to leave to see a girl getting her proposal, I was gutted.
I get you on the attitude thing, sometimes I think it’s a self preservation thing because they didn’t think of it. So they make it out like its the worst idea to do there etc.
i hope you aren’t waiting too long!

littlesquidge: It’s hard venting about our waiting frustration because it is starting to feel like a broken record. My mother is my biggest support in this matter but even so, we’re both sick of talking about the same thing over and over. I occasionally vent on here because the Bees “get it” and are so supportive!
moonyla83: Your man’s behaviour would totally mess with my head. You are being so patient. My SO and I have been together 5 years, lived together for 3 1/2. There has been a stunning diamond ring in the safe for over a year. I am beyond frustrated. wtf is he waiting for? I finally got him to agree that there would be a proposal by the end of 2015. I’m pretty sure he will be making me wait till at least Christmas. I just don’t get this whole waiting thing. We know we are going to be together forever, what’s the problem???
I think there’s a lot of us Waiting Bees who analyze every potentially romatic occasion we share with our SO and think “this would be a great place for a proposal” then get disappointed when it’s just a lovely date. Which is so sad. I hope when you eventually get your ring you will fall back in love with your necklace.
Even though I have been keeping the details of my ring secret from everyone, I caved in and pulled it out of the safe to show my mother last time she was up because it suddenly struck me that she’s 75 and might not even be around by the time he pops the question! So we shared a beautiful 15 minutes oogling the sparkly little treasure together as she loves diamonds. Then it went back in the safe and no-one’s the wiser lol. SO would be pretty pissed if he knew I did that but I don’t want to risk my mother not sharing my joy in a beautiful ring.
I just keep telling myself that he’s bought the ring so it’s going to happen and I just have to be patient. Soooooo patient.

I’m pretty sure guys don’t look at this stuff the same way. There was one day where my bf had something for me, had me close my eyes and everything… And he was just messing with me. I was so mad, and when I finally explained why, that I had hoped it was a ring, he laughed harder than I’ve ever seen him laugh. It was so obnoxious. Lol. But apparently it hadn’t been anywhere near his mind. But he’s taken other steps that show he does think about it. It’s just weird the times it doesn’t cross a guy’s mind.
