  • poll: How would you describe the "stage" of waiting you are in?

    I love weddings!

    I want babies!

    My SO rocks, I just wanna be with my SO forever!

    The ring has been purchased! WHERE IS MY BLING!!

    I do NOT want to deal with wedding drama. Being SOs is awesome.

    I love this poll! 🙂 The ring has been purchased, and is in my SO’s possession- so it’s very much the waiting game. I knew he wouldn’t propose before his cousin’s wedding last weekend. But now all bets are off!

    In other news, I’m on nights this weekend so it should be easier to keep the pact because my ability to talk to my SO will be decreased (he’s on days, and also going to his godson’s baptism). Also we’re still in an LDR 🙁

    Anyone else in an LDR with their SO or soon to be fiance?

    I’m all in again. I’ve slipped too many times. I know he has the ring now, and I don’t want to to do anything to take away from his plan. 

    My dad recently gave me some advice that has helped give me peace, “Relax and be patient. Let it happen on his time.” It helps me to remember that this is just as much his moment, and that he has a particular way he’d like to do it. 

    My lips are sealed.

    The ring is here. I know it is. Haha. My birthday is September 14th. My cousin was supposed to get married September 13th but no longer is. Out of respect for that, I know it will not be before or during my birthday weekend.

    Here’s to patience and not driving ourselves crazy!

    Ok, here we go again! I’m gonna keep it this time… Except for the fact that I just found out about Moissanite and really want to visit a jeweler nearby that is supposed to carry it so I can see what it looks like in real life. I told my SO about it and he doesn’t seem completely opposed to going to check it out but I need to keep my cool so I don’t walk in there like “We’re leaving with a ring, right?!”

    I said on the last thread that I thought maybe we’d get engaged on vacation. This afternoon he asked me to marry him, and I said, “Yes!” It’s still sinking in that we’ll be getting married next summer. I am so happy and want to say thanks to the SIUP women for helping me relax and enjoy the wait. 

    I hope to have some pictures to post soon!

    Hi all!! I havn’t been on for a while. I struggled for a day or two, I was annoying my SO, but he finally understood what it was I needed from him to feel reassured that it would happen, basically I am waiting because he hasn’t quite got enough money saved to purchase the kind of ring we both want, but he is almost there! since then I havnt mentioned a thing and it has been so good! Still waiting, but at least I know where we are at now instead of wondering.

    Keep hanging in there ladies!

    I’m finally joining. He’s had the ring for several months and now is dropping little hints. He’s been saying things like I won’t be a Girlfriend much longer. So I’m gonna shut it up and TRY not to go crazy!

    spazzychica:  I’ve been looking at alternatives to diamonds too. I’m really loving Morganite or Aquamarine.  Thatfaint pop of color *drools*. SO knows I don’t care what stone I get. I just want an oval or emerald,  that has a better clarity and cut than size.

    The ring is in his possesion, and I want it so badly, right now. We were at a wedding yesterday, so needless to say I couldn’t keep my mouth shut. Hopefully I can do better this week! I am literally going insane.

    Ok I’m finally going to join SIUP, it would have been way to hard before as we were finalising details on our custom ering but now the deposits paid, it’s being made and I’m pretty sure I’ll be engaged by September so somehow I’ll find the willpower to shut up until then!

    I stupidly told my mum (SO told me not too but I couldn’t help myself) that is was being made and now she keeps sending me texts like “oo this would be a great place for an engagement party” and ring/wedding txt icons all the time!

    And SO also told his parents but they think I don’t know and now everytime we skype them they have this glimmer in their eye and keep on bring up plans for the future…..agh it’s so hard!! So anyways, hi ladies I’m Jen and Iv been shutting it up for approx 12 hours!
