Aw I am sorry your plans didn’t work out!

Try not to take it so hard that he forgot, it’s a guy thing. The other week the topic of Valentine’s day came up and my SO asked me “um so when is that again.” He is absolutely terrible with dates! I couldn’t help but start laughing! That date is always plastered all over the television and cards, etc but after 25 years he still can’t remember it. Sometimes you just have to take these things in stride. =)

Hopefully your proposal will come soon. Good luck!!

I’m so sorry you’re upset about the whole situation, I totally get where you’re coming from. Some days Boyfriend or Best Friend talks about being pressured and other days he’ll ask random questions about engagements/weddings. It is very frustrating. Especially the not listening part.

I think you should definitely talk to him about how you’re feeling though, I’m always upfront with Boyfriend or Best Friend about things that bother me for more than a day or so and it usually helps. I think he would be open to more discussion, especially since he was supposed to propose around Christmas and it’s been two months. If he gave you that deadline then in my opinion he shouldn’t be feeling “pressured” and he needs to be open to talking with you about it. Good luck 🙂

@onelovegal:  He wasn’t ready to talk about marriage sometime until  the end of the 4th and 5th year. He would complain about “pressure” too. Our mentality as females are so much more different then men.  I think you should express your frustration to him once things cool down and hopefully that helps the situation.  I’m learning to let things go and enjoy my SO and our relationship.  I don’t want to be stress out or annoyed w/ him during the planning process.
