    Our timeline is approximately one year.  We’re waiting until he gradutes in May (and has a job, which I’m sure will happen).  I may be waiting now, but the real waiting starts as soon as he walks across that stage.  Sometimes I wish we would get engaged sooner, but it makes sense to wait so we can better prepare for our future together.

    @CherryBombGirl:  Our time timeline is early-mid February 2013. The reason for this is because the SO and I are accompanying our friends A and C (another couple) to Las Vegas as A had won a free trip, with flights and accommodation taken care of, for four people – thank you KFC!!

    We had initially agreed to get engaged by the end of 2012 but when the trip came up, the SO decided that since trips to the USA (for us since we live in NZ) are going to be sporadic, it would make it all the more special and memorable if he proposed whilst we are in Vegas. To be frank, I’m not too fussed about it – the proposal will be just as much about him as it will be about me, and I’m just glad that he seems to have invested a lot of thought and meaning into it – if that makes sense lol. Sorry I’m rambling Embarassed

    Our timeline is by March 2013….he says it can happen anytime between now and then. I’ve got my fingers crossed for sometime much sooner!

    Our timeline is before the end of April 2013 – because I’m moving to the city where he’s in grad school on May 1. I have a feeling it’ll happen in Feb. 2013, based on some hints πŸ˜‰ I’m pretty happy with the timeline, but we currently live together and I wish we were getting engaged before starting our 8 months of long distance ( the grad school I mentioned starts in Sept), as it would be comforting while he was away.

    Our timeline is drawing to a close – he will pop the question before I begin the new semester in mid-August! However, I have considered myself to be waiting since we went ring shopping around last Christmas, so about 8-9 months.

    It’s less than a month and I’m dying. Mostly because I know it’s just because he is waiting for the right time. I don’t care if the proposal is perfect, but he does. So, I’ll have to wait. The worst part is, because I know it’s coming so soon, everything seems like a possible engagement. It’s making me crazy!

    @CherryBombGirl:  I believe I have another year. I’ll say any where from now( not likely) to about..Oct. 2013. I only say this because he said give him another year. UGH! I hate waiting!

    I really haven’t been waiting a long time, since our relationship has moved rather quickly. I have my dream ring in mind, but we’re looking at rings this weekend to make sure that’s really the one I want.

    I’m pretty sure the proposal will be in November. Since we started dating in March…that will be 8 months since we met!

    Tonight he said, “We should look at rings this weekend, because the time is coming soon!…Erm, you know, when school starts and you’ll be so busy you can’t go look at them!” Haha. But we’ll have a long engagement, til May 2014. πŸ™‚

    our timeline is approx 1 1-2 -2 years he has to get his divorce finalized first and i think it will come shortly after that. And that is on hold because is ex is a very loose girl and pregnant with someone elses baby despite the fact that its been 3 years since they have even lived in the same state have to do a pat test. UGH

    So once that is done the real waiting begins.

    I thought it was going to be April but at this point I don’t care when it is. It’s our relationship that matters and that he wants to commit to me and me to him.
