@lepetitebee: 

I am fairly new to the Bee, so I had to read your previous threads before I could comment. (It would be helpful if you linked your threads!) I can empathise with your waiting — I’ve been with my SO for over 6 years before he proposed. When we first started going out, it wasn’t exactly a fairy-tale either.

BUT whenever I let other people’s questions of “When are you getting married?” That ticked me off and sent me off into bitch mode. Poor SO was on the receiving end.

If you don’t mind me asking, what nice things you have done recently for your SO?

Do you see him as being the One?

No offence, but timelines are unrealistic and puts unnecessary pressure. The moment I stopped caring about what others think and the moment I put more effort into self-development as well doing the things that remind why SO and I are together, it actually felt more fulfilling. I named this initiative “Project Getting Engaged” (PGE).

Here are the rules of PGE:
1. No wedding obsession
2. No getting engaged obsession
3. Do something thoughtful for SO at least every other day

Good luck!!

@lepetitebee:  Enjoy every moment! 🙂 Good luck on your PGE!

If at any time you feel like crawling somewhere to hide, when things get tough, remember that your SO will be there to talk to, openly.

My mom didn’t initially approve of my Fiance either (due to different race), but as time goes by, parents will realize that they can’t control who their children fall in love with. If your mom pressures you, just tell her to smile and relax. Engagement best happens when the least expected anyway. 🙂 Then, your mom will be all tears with joy!
