Hello Bees! A brief summary of my relationship….
3 1/2 years dating. Living together for 2 years. January 2010 made it clear that I wanted to be engaged by 2011. We’ve been ring shopping twice. Found a ring. There have been some financial issues & obligations on his part due to things he had to pay.
Okay so fast forward this is now October. My bday was 2 days ago. NO PROPOSAL! I was so upset because he purchased me a gift (I am grateful) but I feel it could have gone toward the ring. I don’t want to be selfish and rude by saying that but it’s the truth.
So yesterday while we were both off work. He stated that he felt like I was drifting away. Just romance and intimacy wise. And I can agree with that. I just get so mad and resent him each and every time I think about this suffering and waiting pain that I’m experiencing. It is really stressing me out. I think after no proposal on my bday I slipped back into the depressing stage of the waiting cycle. And pretty much broke down yesterday (for the 3rd+ time). I know it’s not fair to him or me. I’m just not good at this waiting thing (I’m about to cry just writing this). I told him yesterday that actions speak louder than words and that I was tired of waiting. I didn’t want it to sound mean but it’s the truth.
Has anyone every experienced this? What happened? What did you do?
Please help. Advice and Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
