My fellow waiting bees, the suspense is killing me!!
I’m pretty sure the ring’s already been ordered, though I have no clue whether he has it already or not. By now, more than 7 years into our relationship, including an 8-month break about 2 years ago, we’ve already talked dates (we’d like to be married by -southern hemisphere- spring 2011), gone countless times all around the waiting cycle, had doubts, solved them, engagement chicken’s been made… we’re both 27, have good jobs and have basically been waiting for the time to be just *right* for us to get engaged.
Well, the last couple of weeks have been so amazing, and so full of hints (or maybe it’s just me ovranalyzing lol). He keeps telling me (because I look at him all smiley and just can’t keep it shut) that he’ll be proposing soon, but that I need to just. stop. asking. when. One of my best friends is getting married on Nov 27 and he’s already let it slip that he doesn’t think he’ll wait that long. Plus, about a month ago, I found the BlueNile app on his Iphone, asked him about it (by jumping onto him not-so-subtly with the phone in my hand), he laughed it off and said “it’s nothing, it’s just got some great info. I’m now a diamond expert!”
SO. November’s here, everything’s on the table and… we’ve got every single weekend up til my friend’s wedding packed with friends, family and work events. And every single day I start off wondering “could today be it? naaahh, it’s a weekday. naaaah, he’s working late. naahh…” But I know it’s coming so soon!!!!! Even if it’s after November ends.
HOW TO KEEP SANE?!

When you want to say something to him, come to the hive! It’s been my saving grace for weeks now! Every so often I want to say to him “So…has the ring been delivered?” and before I let it leave my mouth, I come on here and just read and vent!

LOL I’m in a similar boat. Every time someone mentions weddings or proposals, he gets this self-satisfied, “I’m up to something” look. He’s said that the only reason he hasn’t already proposed is that I haven’t met his parents (I got upset when he randomly decided I shouldn’t go meet them in June – made me feel like he wasn’t serious about me. Now, I realize that I wanted to meet them BEFORE I started thinking of them as future in-laws. The timing is superfluous if he’s already made up his mind. His mom said as much on the phone to him.) My parents are coming here next week, and he’s arranged a few hours alone with my dad. Then I meet his parents between the 22nd and Thanksgiving. (I also finish my trilogy this month, and get my drivers permit after two and a half years of seizures.)
