I just wanted to thank you all for your support on the waiting boards. I am finally engaged and absolutely thrilled! The proposal was incredibly romantic and my fiance had apparently been planning it all year! I thought I would cry but I just felt so happy and slightly shocked that it had finally happened (after 6 years).
I’m sorry I don’t have any photos yet as I know everyone loves photos of the rings and proposals, but I’ll post one once I have one.
To all the other waiting girls, two pieces of advice:
1) Hang in there – it’s hard to believe but it really will happen eventually.
2) Don’t be too afraid to get your hopes up that he’ll propose. My fiance took me away for a surprise but I didn’t want to get my hopes up that he would propose. Even when he got down on one knee I was still thinking to myself, “is he proposing? Is that what he’s doing? Is this really happening?” I wish I had allowed myself to be a bit more ‘in the moment’ and believe that it was actually happening!
