I picked up the ring yesterday and it’s so perfect, nicer than I remember! I took a couple of photos of it but I decided to delete them til I get the ring for real. πŸ™‚

@LittleWigeon:  yay. very excited for you. SO said if I wanted to be engaged and have the ring then I could or I could wait for a proposal. I’m so silly for waiting for the proposal!

@MaidMarian:  Ohhh all kinds of it. BM’s dresses are in already, venue has been picked, but I have to wait till June due to elections (city owned venue), went dress shopping (nothing yet), supposed to meet with a florist next week possibly, and going to a jewlery show on the 24th to look at bands.

Also, I hired planners. Best decision ever.

Hello Ladies! This is my first time commenting and I have browsed through a couple of the posts throughout this chat… it seems like there’s A LOT of exciting things going on! Laughing CONGRATS to some and great job waiting it out ladies~

First, I would like to apologize about the long introduction, there is A LOT taking place right now and just need some support from ladies that understand!

I would like to share a little bit about my status with the SO – We have been dating 2yrs this upcomming FEB and have lived together a year. I have a 3 1/2 year old princess and my SO has taken her in like she is his own, he says he’ll give her the world Smile  There has been alot that has happened the past couple months that has led to duscussions pertaining where we were in our relationship; our close friends got engaged this past DEC and I was excited for them but wondered what was going through my SO’s mind since they too have been dating and living together the same amount of time – I won’t lie we had a couple “hard discussions” about the situation becuase I was a little upset that we hadn’t really discussed it (he’s not the type to talk about certain things, but I love him for it).

We have also recently discussed the possibility (almost guaranteed) of us moving to his home state for better work becuase he would like to provide the best of the best for us. NOW this is great and I told him we’re all in but this job will consist of him working a 2 week on 1 week off kind of job and he would be making enough to where I could be a Stay-At-Home Mom and my suppoprt system in its entirity would be left begind if we were to go. I have tried not to mention the whole “when are we going to discuss getting married” topic becuase of how it irriatted him so the last time BUT this is a big step in our lives SO i brought it up again last night and he got upset and said not to bring it up again, he understands what I want, which I don’t WANT him to do anything he doesnt want to do. He told me he’d like me to stop bringing because he would like it to be a surprise, which I do too, dag-nabbit! BUT I just wish I knew what was going through his mind so I wasn’t wondering if he thought about it!

Anyways, I apologize again for the long introduction and hope someone can give me some hope and give some advice as to what I should do so I don’t irritate him about the topic again.

Thank you for listening!

@leisha606:  I think that it’s great that he is being open about everything a woman would want their SO to be open about! Just talk him through his worries in regards to the situation, just becuase you know soooo many disfunctial couples doesn’t mean you will be in the same boat, especially since it sounds like you guys are very open with eachother. On that note good for you, things sounds like there on the right track, just be supportive and open to his thoughts and share yours too, this will keep things on the right track and maybe just maybe help speed things up a bit πŸ˜‰

@love-a-lot-bee:  Thanks!! πŸ™‚ We are really hoping to move in together this year. He brought up looking for jobs closer so we could AND he had an interview earlier this week for a great position that is half the distance of his current job so fingers crossed! I was helping him prepare for the interview and asking him questions. I asked what his goals were for the next 5 years and he went quiet and said “i would prefer to discuss that with someone else” and smiled. I really hope its closer than 5 years haha! He always says “when we get married” or “our kids” but we haven’t specifically discussed timelines.

That sounds like a really great opportunity for you and your SO, I do agree it is a huge move to do with out a stable commitment, but that is a good sign he wants to surprise you right? He could at least say in the next year or 2 or something like that though lol.

Hi all! This is my first post here – I’ve been lurking for a couple of days and it seems like such a lovely community.

So, I’m waiting. Patiently (for now), but waiting all the same. I completely understand that my SO wants to wait until we’re a bit more financially independent but we’ve been together for nearly 5 and a half years now!

We’ve obviously spoken about marriage and have provisionally agreed on a date but we’re disagreeing whether it should be in 2017 or 2018.

I just can’t wait to be able to call myself his fiancée, but my friends look down on long engagements.

We want to finish our degrees before getting married but I’d say ‘yes’ without a moments hesitation if he asked! So instead I’m sat here looking at gorgeous rings all day and thinking about ‘what ifs’!
