I know, it’s hard to be patient! I was with my other half for just over three years and you think “just do it already!” But you know if I was doing it again (and I too am very impatient), I’d really just enjoy the build-up to it all, if you know it’s coming and if he’s dropping hints like that all the time (and doing the trying rings on each finger thing!), and when the time does come just enjoy every moment of it before you hurtle headlong into the wedding planning process! It’s a lovely time in your relationship and a part of it that only happens once so enjoy it all.

This made me LOL.

Me and my oh have been together 4 years in June, and he still hasn’t officially asked me. He said from the minute we met he would marry me, and he’s always made it clear that that is his intention. But after talking with him about rings last year, and we are going on holiday this October and I happened to overhear him saying about proposing then…nothing has happened.

So last week i casually sent him this message.

Didn’t want to say anything but getting tired of waiting now, at this rate I’m going to have to pick my own ring, buy my own ring, and ask myself to marry me. Sort it out please.

So he rang me and he said it’s not that he doesn’t want too, at which point I pointed out he had already been engaged before and they were together less then a year, we’re 4 years in, he said he wanted to do it properly, but again I pointed out it’s been a year since we discussed marriage and there’s nothing in the pipeline ( and little does he know I took the whole proposing on holiday thing to heart and would be GREATLY disappointed if didn’t happen) so he said to choose a ring, and set a date…not quite the proposal I would have liked, but trust me, if left down to him I’d still be wondering this time next year-_-

Sometimes you have to take the bull by the horns lol but seriously I do know how u feel, it’s such a let down when your excited and waiting….and waiting,,,,,,,and waiting,,,,,,,,patience is a virtue they say 😉 xx

My fiancee ALWAYS said to me “I’m going to marry you”, everytime I did something nice, or got dressed up – even when I cooked his favourite meal. When we first got together I didn’t really want to get married but then one day when he said “I’m going to marry you” I just said OK. And that was it. I said yes and then we started talking dates, we went ring shopping that weekend and he gave me a ring on the Wednesday. Next time your oh talks about “when you’re married”, perhaps you could discuss some dates with him and get the ball rolling..?

OMG I’d be ready to burst if my boyfirend said that and then I had to wait!! I am sooo impatient too. Well it definitely sounds like its not too far away. If he hasn’t proposed to you in a month then I’d be very surprised. Let him work out the ‘carat thing’. Maybe you could say ‘I tried on a ring the other day, it was …..’ and give him the details. But for all you know, he’s already bought the ring and just waiting for the right moment. Just keep your ear out for those “lets go for a walk around the lake” and “lets go for a drive to the other side of town” suggestions.! He is definitely about to pop. How exciiiting !!!!
