Hello all. I am very glad I found this message board. Definitely makes me feel better knowing I’m not the only one out there waiting ever so impatiently for that question to be popped.
My SO and I have been together for a year now, are living together and we have had the marriage discussion. he has told me that he wants to marry me and will and I love him dearly and cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with him…
…. but the waiting game is killing me… I know before he had hinted at the possibility of a proposal around the holidays of this year (since it is so close to our one year anniversary), but I am going crazy. There are engagement and jewelry ads all over the television and it seems like every weekend one of my friends or his gets engaged.
I want it to be my turn. i am too excited to hear him say he wants me for life and to be able to start planning (Okay, I will admit I have started some planning… hahaha).
And like I said, I am soooo glad I’m not the only one out there who is waiting and going crazy

Welcome to the Bee!! I can completely sympathise with how you are feeling!! There are a couple of strategies us bees have used when waiting (look at Mr Bees waiting plan and engagement chicken (just for fun of course)). Distraction, distraction and secret planning are the keys to keeping sane!! Keep reading and posting on here – its a fantastic little community!

hey. thanks for suggesting mr. bees waiting plan. that was something ive started to implement within the last week because i realized i didnt want him to propose simply because i wanted him to, i wanted him to truly want it. so i mixed a few things up and have dropped the subject of an engagement… dont get me wrong im still trying really hard to be patient… but i feel better now enjoying where so and i are in the our relationship… its making waiting a little more bearable…

Welcome to the hive!! Sounds like you and your SO are on the same page so that is great news!! Yes, I know the holiday commercials are driving me crazy too!! Just try to relax and enjoy the season. Maybe even find a new hobby. That has helped me.
