- Wedding: March 2011
Sooo glad to hear I am not alone in this waiting game! After reading some of the other posts on this board, I don’t feel so bad. Still frustrated, but not as much. In a similar post I mentioned that my boyfriend has the ring in hand, but so far isn’t moving any closer to placing that ring on my finger. What gives?? I just don’t understand the waiting part.
We both know we are ready for this next step, and he knows I am not into big, elaborate proposals. I can’t explain it! Ugh…guys….lol.
Part of the frustrating part is that we are actually going to get married really soon. We are in the process of buying a house together and want to seal the deal prior to closing so all of the legal stuff is taken care of. We are just going to do a small courthouse marriage followed by a fun dinner with our closest friends and family. Nothing too crazy. And then next summer when my little brother gets back from serving in Afghanistan we are planning a vow renewal/reception so we can go all out and have the wedding of our dreams.
Because we are planning on getting married sometime within the next month to four months (we are waiting on an offer on a short sale,) I would like for him to propose sometime soon so I can at least enjoy being engaged for a few weeks before we say I Do. However, I am really worried that he is just going to wait to propose until he knows our offer has been accepted on the house.
I wonder if I should say something. Although, I already kind of feel like I have as I mention us getting married/engaged all the time. Plus, it is getting very frustrating having family/friends and co workers asking me where my ring is. I have never had so many people check out my left hand in my life!! lol.
Ughh!! What to do???
Thanks for letting me vent, ladies 🙂 Good luck to all of you other waiting bees out there too. And congrats to the lucky bees who have made it past the waiting game 🙂
