Me too! How long have you been together with Jason? Any indication that a proposal will come anytime soon?

I’ve been with my guy for almost 2 years and I thought that there were hints that he was going to propose in August, but all of my hopes got crushed a few days ago when he told me that he is not ready to commit yet. Frown I am one of the most impatient people out there and this sucks!

I feel you!  I know my guy is going to propose within the year at the very latest (he’d BETTER), but man is it annoying having to wait.  I’m a total control freak and not having control over THIS is making me absolutely crazy. 

On the upside, I’m getting super fit since I lock myself in our workout room everytime I get overly anxious!  I’m gonna look FIERCE in my wedding gown when that day finally DOES come!

I’m in a different situation, but that doesn’t make the waiting any less hard. It’s easy to get annoyed at other couples with their quick engagements, but there are plenty of bees here who feel the same as you do, some having waited more than 8(!) years before receiving a proposal.

So, don’t lose heart and focus on making your time together more fun and less about the “OMG if he’s not proposing it must mean he doesn’t love me enough to marry me”. I HIGHLY recommend putting Mr. Bee’s Plan into immediate action (just search the forums, you are sure to find it).

Commit time and attention to yourself first, and I’m sure Jason will follow through as well. Good Luck!Cool

I understand! It’s so annoying!!! Two of my good friends just got engaged and their relationships combined don’t even compare to my relationship. You just have to try and remind yourself not to compair your relationship to other peoples, hard I know!! Just try your best to enjoy your time with the man you love while you’re waiting and waiting…

I waited almost 6 years for a proposal and added another 2 year wait until the wedding. Even though I’m engaged now, I still get frustrated when friends get engaged after us and married before us. I feel your pain!

I think its the name Jason LOL!!  I’m been waiting for my “official” proposal.  Everyone knows that we will be getting married next year, but he hasn’t “proposed” yet.  And don’t worry we’ve been together 6 years. 

But it does suck when there are people that dated less than you and have gone off and gotten married before you.  

the wait continues…….

Waiting is no fun!!  Waiting 5 years here.  Just keep improving yourself and you will come out better no matter what the outcome is with your relationship.  Saying that.  I wish the best for you.  

My bf mentioned that putting our wedding money wouldn’t be worth putting into an account with a high APY because it will only be a year or two to gain interest.  He hasn’t proposed yet but it was light at the end of the tunnel.  At least he had some idea when we will get married.

I hear ya!! Surprisingly though, the average wait time amongst my friends seems to be 6 years and there are a few friends that have been together 8 years and they still arent talking about  marriage!

I keep telling my boyfriend that I will NOT be waiting 6 years – we got together a little older than everyone else!

keep positive o0olibelulao0o – your time will come!
