So, its been 8 months since SO decided we HAD to pick out a ring. Its been 3 months since the vacation we had, which he told all his friends he was proposing on. Its been almost a month since we went on a romantic mountain weekend away he planned. And I’m STILL waiting!!! I can’t imagine what the hold up is! And I’m getting seriously antsy and frustrated. I’ve stopped all wedding and engagement talk. I know he has the ring, I mean obviously if he had planned to do it 3 months ago, he must. Its not financial, he makes a very healthy living…..what the heck?!

Maybe his just waiting for the perfect time. Obviously he didn’t think the times you mention above were the right time. I know your going crazy with the whole waiting and he has the ring but I think when he does do it it’ll be worth it. He may be trying to catch you by suprise and do it when you least expect it. Hang in there.

OMG I thought for sure he’d have done it by now, he must be REALLY trying to throw you off, he really doesn’t want you to know when it’s coming, and well… it’s working… hopefully he can do it any day now because he’s got you completely confused… that must feel awful though waiting, and wondering if its coming at any moment, wow, hang in there, it’ll be worth it after all this!!!

Thanks for all your support ladies! I’ve tried once or twice to really ask him what’s going on. He gets really jittery and says he won’t dicuss it. And as for asking for ‘my hand’, my dad passed away 9 years ago so if anything, he’d ask my brother. Whom he talks to probably more than I do! So, I don’t know what the deal is. We’ve lived together almost a year, and I’m pretty ‘housewifey’. I had brought it up today that maybe he’s just too comfortable with the way things are, so why bother to move things forward. He seemed to agree with my observation. I guess its time to have a talk. I just don’t know how to bring it up, and say it without stepping on his toes, or making him feel defensive…..

if its any consolation i have been waiting for a already purchased ring for about 2yrs!!!! lol.i’ve stopped being anxious cause i truly believe its right around the corner. but its not easy. the last time (old yrs) which i thought he would of it didnt happen.after all the hoop la we talked and he said he just wasnt ready.fair enough,i want him to be totally sure before he does it,i am actually happy happy he didnt just yet it has given us time to grow. wight i might suggest is to speak to him and see if u guys are still on the same page about getting married and haing a life togther.if u are let it go.i guess by his reactionu’ll have some idea where his head is at.
best of luck to u.

Good luck to you in riding this out. It is tough, for sure.
This morning I remembered how anxious I was for my new furniture that was delayed months longer than it was supposed to take. I hated waiting but now that I have my awesome red leather sofa, I am content and barely remember how impatient I was. I’m hoping this time will pass quickly so I can get to the good stuff.
