I think you handled things really well!!  And by being honest with how your were feeling, you got a timeline, whoohoo!  That is so awesome.  Plus now you have a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings.  

Now I wonder how he’ll pop the question??

@kellyk1214:  seriously! And the fact that they have only been dating six months makes her outburst even more over the top. 




@SomedayHisBride:  I think you said in a previous thread that your boyfriend is significantly older than you are. Taking that into consideration I would strongly suggest you tone down the melodrama and behave more maturely in the future, for the sake of your relationship.

I’m sure it would have happened sooner or later but don’t you think it would have been more exciting to wait for him to actually do it then rush him or make him feel bad for not proposing? No offense Im happy you will be getting your proposal but seemed kind of pushy to me.

@WestCoastV:  this!

OP, did you even verbally thank your boyfriend for his generous gift of earrings from Tiffany? You really shouldn’t be pushing him for a proposal, lest he comes to regret doing so.

I think you need to chill out a bit. You have only been dating for 6 months and you are crying about not getting a proposal? I know that the situation seemed like it might be a proposal, so I’m glad you have a timeline now to avoid further incidents like that. Just relax and enjoy the early stages of the relationship. The honeymoon phase is wonderful, but I don’t think I would want to rush a proposal during it. Best of luck to you Both.

@SomedayHisBride:  I thnk some of the responses here are maybe a bit harsh. If you had talked about marriage previously, then it does seem like he may have been setting up a proposal. I can understand your disappointment.

I’m glad you two got a chance to talk and to discuss the expectations of the relationship. It sounds like you both are on the same page. He sounds like a super sweet guy who was trying to do the right thing here. Enjoy the last few months of your relationship as “boyfriend and girlfriend” – soon you will be fiances!

@kellyk1214:  +1, mind games? He was just trying to surprise you with something nice. 

But congrats on your future proposal!

I argree with the majority of the bees here. You need to chill out! Future feeling like it’s up in the air only after six months? And after a glorious dinner a fantastic gift I feel like you pretty much slapped him in the face for not getting you what you expected. Now you’ve committed him to propose to you and your terms during your favorite month ( see a pattern here) I will say congratulations but in the future you need to take a step back and see things from the mans point of view and compromise else this relationship wont work and he will feel resentful for being pushed into a corner.


i don’t mean to sound harsh and i feel some bees are downplaying your reaction to your situation. What’s going to happen in the future when similar situations and expections arise and are not met. As a mature couple heart to heart talks should talke place before your expectations  start to grow and you cannot see the forest through the trees. In the future talk about things and dont overreact. Every mans natural reaction is to fix things and his was to promise you to propose to you when and how you wanted. is that the time frame he also wanted or did he just say that to make you happy. Again congrats but again relax
