So I am at that point where all I can think about is marriage. Life in our house goes likes this
SO: want to go to the movies?
me: want to get married?
SO:LOL, how about inception at 2:30
And even though I was joking and really want him to be the one who proposes I am hurt that he didn’t even seem interested. It seems like every day I think more and more about getting married and him getting down on one knee and every day I get more and more frustrated/ possibly resentful because he has yet to do it. I know he wants to marry me and he is just waiting until he feels like he has the money and is mentally ready to be a husband but it just hurts so bad to look at him and want to marry him sooooo bad and to know he isn’t asking this Christmas.

I was there. I know this is hard hard hard to hear, but you have got to stop talking about it and live your life! (I could not take this advice but in retrospect I wish I had). Get a new hobby, exercise, every time you start thinking about the ring throw yourself into something else. Go to the movies with him and have fun!
If you’re tired of waiting, move on, but until then, focus on being happy in the present. I know it’s hard, but that’s my best advice…as someone who was there for a longgggggggg time.

@ktbrady: Thank for the advise I know I should but you know how hard it is to follow that advise lol. Also I have recently (in the last few months) gotten sick which has really made it hard for me to do the things I use to love to do such as baking or running because I am so tired all of the time, which leaves a lot of time to researching the waiting boards and engagement rings lol. not helping me at all 🙂

@miss-cupcake:I don’t know what else to say except I am in the exact same boat!!! My Boyfriend or Best Friend says he’s just not READY to be engaged. He wants to marry me, for sure, but he needs more time before the engagement. Blah! Alllll I can think about is getting engaged/married, seeing him every day, making our home. He gets annoyed when I consistently bring it up, but I cannot help it! I fail at the Christmas challenge!
