Hey bee’s in waiting! I was thinking about how I can’t keep my mouth shut about getting engaged to my SO. It got me thinking.. If the tables were turned. If was the man in the relationship. I would have proposes over a year ago! The way I feel for him it makes me want to spend the rest of my life with him ASAP!
If you were the man in the relationship would you have proposed already? Or do you agree with him making you wait?

I would most definately proposed already!! Probably a few months ago! I am fairly certain my SO won’t make me wait too much longer though!

I would have asked a long time ago. I’d look at myself and go, look at that woman, smart, self sufficient and beautiful, WHY would I let her get upset enough and irritated enough to even think of leaving? You know a man with good sense will snap her up!
@KittenB: THIS one too!LOL

OMG, what a simple yet thoght-proviking question!!!
I voted for No, When the time is right… but I am a “DO IT ALREADY-Impatient” bee myself…
To be honest I have NO idea what I’d be thinking and doing if it’s the other way around(if I was a guy with a typical male characteristic). But, I am pretty sure if I were a typical guy in a serious relationship, I would be making an effort to communicate with the SO even if I wasn’t ready “just yet”. (I hope).

@KittenB: and @MsMamaBear: I’m right there with ya, ladies! Lol!
Umm, yeah, we’d be married for about a year now, if I’d been proposing to myself. ??? O.o You know what I mean

I would have proposed a few months ago if I were him. I’ve actually thought about this before and don’t think it’s a weird question at all – quite the contrary, I find it very fascinating!

ABSOLUTELY – like a year or more ago. We have been ready for a long time.

My inital reaction is to say “YES!” and give lots of wonderful examples of how I would have done it sooner, but in reality? Nope.
I love our proposal story, Love. And I wouldn’t want to change it for anything 🙂 Yes, we were together over three years before he proposed, and it will be almost five by the time we get married, but that’s perfectly okay with me.

My guy has already said he intended to do it a while ago but his planning skills aren’t exactly the best and acquiring a ring has been a huge pain. It’s been right for a while. I would have proposed as well by this point

Nope, I would take my time. Our timeline has been a long journey but its going to worth it in the end.

@WineAndCupcakes: I will have about the same timeline!!! We will be together three years in march, but I’m fairly certain we will get engaged this month. We will most likely be engaged for two years.
