Did you SEND this to him? May I ask what prompted you to email this to him? Did you have a recent conversation about the December 2010 “deadline” or was it a mental one you had?

I’m just asking!!! I know if I had sent something like this to Mr. RB he would have been totally blindsighted by it… I’d get a “WTF” as a response lol.

On a side note: I know you guys met online, do you find it easier to communicate via email? Mr. RB & I are LDR and we met online… sometimes if something is really difficult to bring up we do it via IM! lol we’ll have to cope once we live together…

I think its great that you wrote him that email.  It takes off some of the pressure and if you had given him a date to be engaged by it might not have gone over so well.  For me personally, if I had done that and we did get engaged by that date I would always wonder if he REALLY wanted to be engaged or only did it so he wouldnt lose but (but wouldve asked later)

Did he write back?

Good for you for taking charge while simultaneously releasing control… I didn’t even know you could accomplish both at once 😉

It sounds like you two can have really honest discussions, and that’s FABULOUS!

Wish I knew how to articulate my thoughts to the boy quite so well, but, alas, they just fly around my head and make me bounce off the walls.

I think that was a fabulous way to take back *control* (or at least quasi-control) of a situation that was driving you crazy because you had no control!   Wait . . . did that make sense?!?

Kudos, doll!

Very cute… my BF would react the same way!  Half the time he doesn’t say anything about the emails I send him, (due to MY christmas challenge.)  So who knows what he’s thinking!

I love the email! I’m so glad that you sent it and hopefully you’ll feel more relaxed. I have to tell you that I had been harassing my now-hubby for a while to find out when he was going to get around to proposing. Easter morning 2008 (the day we were engaged) I was on my way to his house when I called to tell him that I was going to stop bothering him and that I loved him and was willing to wait for his timeline no matter when it was. Turns out he had been planning to propose that day and my phone call helped seal the deal!

Good Luck!

That’s a great email. And yay for prioritizing being with the person you love over getting engaged by a certain date. 😉

fantastic email! and what a way to regain control of yourself in the process. and hey, maybe it’ll have a fantastic unintended effect of speeding up the proposal! you never can know with boys. LOL
