sakirby :  Yeah I hate to say it but you could be waiting a bit, if he’s waiting for financial security. Student loans can eb extortionate and it makes sense to be on a secure financial footing before taking things to the next (and very expensive) step.

He proposed yesterday after we cooked dinner together, by walking by the river in the city at night, near a fancy concert hall that was beautifully lit in rainbow colors (completely unexpected, the colors!) He told me to bring out the Thanksgiving wishbone from 2 days ago, make a wish, and crack it. He then said “I guess we both know what we wished for” ;P And he got down on one knee. Very private moment. Ring: pear, on size 4.5 finger. I joked to him that symbolically, it was the tears of the past 3-4 years of joy, pain, agony, and everything in between we survived between my mom (see previous threads), life, and general life crazy–and what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. Thanks for keeping me company throughout this journey folks πŸ˜‰

He mentioned he’d like to have my ring ordered by Christmas but I’m not sure if we can figure that out financially. We had discussions about how I’d like the proposal (my previous was with a bunch of other people around and I’d like this one to be more intimate.) so I am thinking it will be within the next few months.

I would like to be added to the list. I was on this list two years ago and had a few ups and downs with my BF but I think we are moving toward forever!

DaniGirl03 :  Nice to know I won’t be waiting alone. Lol very valid reasons. We decided on the year which is also 2019. Once we get engage we will pick a month and day. I’m thinking summer of 2019. I love when it’s warmer out. Good luck!

rosembee :  We’ve already picked our date, because we had to line things up for when our daughter is on break from school and travel costs are reasonable. We’ve opted for a tiny wedding/elopement to Las Vegas. So we’ve picked February 15th, 16th or 17th, 2019. We’ll pick on once we know availability of our preferred photographer and preferred chapel. We’re stuck waiting on funds that are tied up in a secure escrow while we buy land and build a house. Due to legalities, we absolutely won’t get married before house is finished. The house should be started latest february/march. He knows we basically need 5-6 months to get everything in place. So absolute latest he’ll put a ring on it is beginning of September for our anniversary. I’ve already got my dress started with the designer I’m working with, because he knows what I want for my dress will take time (going custom, with a local designer) and he’s fine with that.
