I am a newBEE too πŸ™‚ And from what I’ve learned from all the other bees is to enjoy your time with your SO! It’s good to be hopeful, but don’t think about it too much πŸ™‚

@MissBuffalo: Ditto! As much as I know we have to move on our own timeline, the thought of going thru all of those holidays AND the New Year (this will be our 5TH TIME going thru all of this together!) without being engaged kind of makes me sad.  I know I need to just enjoy the time but it just seems like that is the season of a million engagements and I don’t want to come out of it not engaged.

Welcome to the Bee! 

It sounds like your guy is working on things, but really wants you to be surprised. I don’t think it’s the worst thing in the world if you can renew your lease for less than a year. It’s possible you’ll be engaged by the end of 2010, but maybe not by October when you need to give notice. 

I know how you feel about thinking every situation is going to be a proposal situation. My guy is supposed to ask by the end of October (formerly he said the end of September!!) so his time is running out and basically I think about every weekend – this could be it! Just try try to enjoy your time. Your guy sounds sweet and I don’t think he needs any prodding to propose. Maybe it will be sooner than you think!

@yellowlinedpage: Yes! I definitely want to have a ring on my finger when we visit his family for Christmas.

In regards to your living situation, do what feels right, not what everyone else expects. You love this man he loves you, what’s the problem? For the holidays with no ring, you always have your MAN!! A tleast your not alone for the Holidays and in WaitingWink

At least you know it’s coming, and pretty soon! That’s exciting! I know how it feels to get all excited for each potential proposal occasion. It’s tough! Welcome to the hive; it’s a good place to help you cope with all the ups and downs of waiting.

@artichokey Yup I feel the same way. I’m even debating not going for Thanksgiving (in addition to christmas) if there is no ring. If he wants me to act like a daughter-in-law constantly, I’m going to need a ring.

Pretty, pretty please?

Welcome to the Hive! I am a newbee myself and I’m on the “waiting list” as well with a few other ladies who have responded to your board. They have all responded to mine too so I think we have a mini sorority going on. LOL. But I know it frustrating waiting for the “moment”. Yesterday I could not even spend a quality day with my FH because he asked me to go with him to an engagement party next weekend for one of his friends/coworkers. I was like uuuugggghhh. I don’t really want to go because their happiness is only going to depress me. I know that’s bad.  I am happy for them and I love to see people in love, etc. It just sucks because I am having to wait. Oh and did I mention they had only been together for 6 months before the guy proposed and my guy and I just made 3 years. Ugh! I also am eyeballing ALL of the upcoming holidays. My bday is next month, followed by Thanksgiving, New Years, and Christmas.

@MissBuffalo OMG! I am soooo feeling the same way. If I don’t have the ring by Thanksgiving and/or Christmas then I AM NOT going with him to be around his family. I just feel like been there and done that. Enough already. We always try to split the holidays (one with my family and one with his). But I am so not up for that this year with no ring. It makes my stomach turn just thinking about it.
