    I’m anxious for it to be over because I’m sick of having conflicting feelings whenever someone I know gets engaged! I don’t feel it’s in the cards for my SO & I just yet, but it still stings whenever I hear of someone else’s proposal and it takes a lot of effort to put my jealousy aside to just be happy for them. I’m also anxious because I plan on initiating a timeline talk with my SO if our anniversary and my birthday (both in March) pass without a proposal, and I’m pretty sure they will.

    @lanibug:  Ha! I love that photo! I can definitely relate to that girl in more than one of my social circles…

    @daffodil89:  Are there actual stats based on that?  So many people I know get engaged in the summer.  There are lots of outdoor proposals and it’s probably better that it isn’t -40 🙂

    I would also find it odd to be proposed to around Christmas or something when we’re staying with relatives and don’t have much of our own space or time.  I realize others might not have an issue with it, but luckily for me DH got that too.

    We had a really really awesome timeline chat this weekend (that I detailed in the link below) , so I have been feeling hopeful and excited! I still get a little jealous twinge with all the engagement announcements, but my time is just around the corner- woo hoo!

    @SilvanArrow:  My SO is the same re: holidays, which to be honest so am I….  I want a special day of our own.  But similarly it makes it more difficult to predict, but  I guess that’s the point 😉  Hopefully 2014 will be THE YEAR for both of us!  eep!

    Honestly, I’m relieved that it’s almost over. This engagement season has been particularly stressful and full of external pressure.
