well that’s a good question but honestly, its never easy waiting!

I’m going through the same thing ATM, but I don’t know if he even has a ring yet (he wants it to be a surprise) my boyfriend told me that’s he plans on proposing this year… I’m assuming it’ll be this summer and I think (almost 99% sure) it will be on a holiday later in the summer… Im excited in knowing that it WILL happen eventually but I know it’s frustrating when everyone asks “so when are you getting engaged/married” – like you have control over it lol! I hate that! I’m honestly dreading this summer whe we have a few weddings to go to and I’ll have “wedding envy” too. Some of these people have been dating for only a year and are 5 yrs younger than me – I’m only 28 πŸ˜‰ 

So, I’ve decided to stop comparing my relationship timeline to other people’s… How soon you get engaged/married doesn’t mean that your love is stronger or that you’ll have happier marriage right? πŸ˜‰

if you look back at my post from a few days ago (or so many other bee’s posts) you can see other people’s very helpful suggestions to me too! And honestly looking on Wedding Bee and reading that I’m not alone in the waiting game has been so great! 

Heres my post: 


Goodluck πŸ˜‰ x

mrs_eason:  Im in the same boat ladies. 7 years with my man this last Feb. We both designed a ring and brought it home in December. It’s upstairs right now. 

I don’t know why he’s waiting, I know he has it. Our anniversary came and went and he said he didn’t propose then becuase it was Valentine’s Day and he thought it would have been cliche. 

Today, one of my good friends at work just announced that she’s 15weeks pregnant… I was happy for her at first, and then I had to leave.. and cry. It made me realize how badly I really want this life with him, but I have to WAIT for him to do something about it.

I told him he HAS to propose to me this year, and he agreed that was the plan all along. But if we wait unitl say December, what time does that leave us to plan a wedding next year? 


I’m having a breakdown here… I know how you ladies feel. Like life is happening to everyone else but you..

Aw sorry to hear about that πŸ™ it’s not easy! 

I dont know how I’d cope knowing my man had a ring but didn’t propose yet… I’m sure he just wants to surprise you and catch you gaurd πŸ˜‰ and I know I don’t know him but he probably won’t make you wait till December! That would be cruel! Lol!

Waiting is really hard, I don’t understand why men has to wait for soooo long nad the proposal was not that dramatic either~  But once the wait is done, I promise you will forget the painful waiting period and busy wedding planning 

I waited over a year, a the end of the waiting period… I was a crazy woman… I ruined it because I would not hold my anger toward him….even though he already gave me a obvious hint that it will be on our anniversary.  Well, he did still propose at the end.. 

Fast forward to now, I’m happily engaged and throw away all the pain and disappointment behind. πŸ™‚
