6 months isn’t very long in the grand scheme of things. If you believe him, just enjoy the relationship as it is now.

I have been with my guy for 10+ years and we just got engaged over Christmas…I’m not saying you will have to wait as long; I just wanted to say sometimes happy things happen when you least expect them. Just go with the flow and who knows? Don’t worry too much and try to enjoy life

I’m also 32, we’ve also been together for 1.5 years, we also live together, we’ve also talked about getting engaged, and he also said he had thought he’d propose around late spring or early summer.  Now he says he’ll propose sooner, but who knows.  So far, I’m not awesome at waiting and trying to get better by checking in here (just joined today).

I’m torn between wanting to encourage him to propose sooner, and feeling like if he’s not excited to do it, then it shouldn’t happen.  Maybe he’ll get more excited soon?  I don’t know.

I know it feels like forever, expecially when you look up and there is yet another birth announcement on facebook or a new house or a five year anniversary and you feel like you’re missing something.  But if he is the right guy, then six months should be nothing compared with the next fifty years.  At least that’s what I’m trying to tell myself.

What’s his reasoning for waiting 6 months?
