That’s a VERY good idea! I think I’ll have to join you on that one. What if HE brings it up? Then it’s free game, right?

Awesome, I’ll join in the challenge. I do believe if HE mentions it, it’s fair game 🙂

I’m in! Does the same apply to when other people bring it up? My sister started hinting (very strongly) to my bf this past weekend and didn’t stop till I gave her the evil eye. I think he got the point though cause he mentioned I have all my favorite rings bookmarked on my computer. He wasn’t supposed to know that :/

Well… since it’s only a bit over a month away, I’ll chime in on this one.. LoL.  We’re actually looking at venues in St. Thomas ON V-day… so I’ll have to talk about it.  But until then, I’ll keep it zipped.  :o)

Ugh, this is gonna be hard, because SO’s brother is getting married in February, but I’m in. I failed miserably on the Christmas Challenge, lol, so maybe I can do better on this one.

I am definetly jumping aboard for this one. If your man keeps hearing about it the longer it will be till he actually proposes. Going to be hard though.

We had a very long productive in-depth conversation about it on New Years Eve.  (It really helps to get him really drunk to get him to open up about the subject).   And then New Years Day, I suggested some short term goals, like V-Day, or his birthday (Jan 29).  Of course, there’s always the long-term SOGOTP date, August 2011. 

So having had those recent conversations and having set some short-term goals, I suppose I need to shut up about it.

Caveat: My brother is getting married in May, so I will be discussing his wedding with my SO, since we are in it.  I promise I just won’t push as to our own engagement.

Wait does it count if your going to a Bridal expo together w/the family??  See I have to go to one on Jan. 23rd.  I’ll try up to that point and then we’ll see where we go from there!

I’m in!  If it doesn’t happen by V-Day I can promise that we’ll be having a little talk, but I’m going to shut my mouth until then!  I’m hoping he’s not waiting until then, but it’s entirely possible – both of our birthdays are the day before V-Day, so it’s kind of a big couple days for us Smile  Hopefully he’s ordered the ring and is planning it for soon, but either way, I know it’s helping for me not to be bugging him about it.

I just joined-but I am in!!

I’ve been with my SO for almost 6 years and am having a really hard time waiting. I’m 25, but if one more person tells me that I’m still so young, or that I have lots of time, I might sock them in the face!

He said on NYE (after a few drinks) it would be ‘very very soon’, but after so many similar promises I just don’t even know if I even believe it any more.

I am hoping if I can back off on mentioning it, he might ask….I’m scared I am ruining it for myself! I also feel like I must have brought it up a million times over Xmas….but I’m sure you ladies all know firsthand how hard it is to listen to everyone in your (and HIS!) family tell you ” we were sure he’d propose over the holidays!’

@msnelson13:  I love it – SOGOTP DAY!!  Ha!

Count me in.  Sent him my final ring selection 2 days ago and I’m done!  Not a PEEP from me.
