  • Wedding: September 2011

Fiance told me he wasn’t going to propose for 7-8 months. We got engaged a month later. He just really wanted to throw my off. It was really important to him that I be surprised.

Literally hours before the proposal, we were in Jared’s, looking at rings, even though he had bought the ring months earlier!

Sending good vibes your way!!!

Like the PP said maybe he is trying to throw you off.  If he isn’t and it will take longer I know it’s going to be hard to wait and not say anything.  In the end it’ll be worth it because you know he wants to spend the rest of his life with you.  I hope by focusing on that it’ll make it easier on you plus you have the surprise of not kowing when his going to propose.  I hope you keep us updated.

Sorry to hear you are frustrated at the wait, MrsT2B.

Yes, he could be throwing you off yet you say this is not his style.  You seem to have an open communication between you.  If I may give my two cents here…. European men are usually quite direct.  You could just sit down with him over a bite or something and mention that you are feeling a little ‘antsy’ as you say, and have a chat to clarify matters for you.

I am only giving this advice as it is what I would do (and have done with the Canadian – I asked whether or not I would be getting engaged before he heads to Canada for the Christmas break).  I know the ring is due to be ready mid november as we designed it ourselves. I myself don’t believe in putting myself through agony and I would not like to see my SO in the same boat.  I’m sure your SO doesn’t know how you feel right now.

Well, whether you decide to have a chat or not, I wish you and ‘the Pole’ the best 🙂 xxx

@MrsT2b: I don’t see anything wrong with open communication. My SO told me he wanted to propose in March and I was shocked. I told him that seemed so far away. He laughed and said he will see what he could do. I am hoping for Christmas, maybe New Years, I would even take Valentine’s day. March just seems 50 years away!!!! I am there with you sister:0)
