You know what, hon? My husband(!) proposed a few years ago on a whim without a ring and started hugging me and calling me “fiance fiance fiance”. I was so shocked, and when I said yes he said, “omg, I wasn’t ready!!!” and took it back. I cried for a LONG time.

So, he finally “was ready” a year ago and I truly am glad that he waited, but I definitely was soooo pissed at him back then. I would get super mad at him when other people would get engaged and kept saying, “see, this is what is SUPPOSED to happen when someone proposes and the other person says yes.” Then I said to him ever since then that as far as I was concerned we were engaged since that moment and he could give me a ring and “officially propose” whenever he wanted. The truth was, we both still needed some more time to explore our independent selves, and waiting was the right thing. Life gets CRAZY once he gives you that ring and you start making announcements all around. Trust me, take some time to have fun with him BEFORE that happens!

My dad always says that the best things in life take time and are worth waiting for. That’s a really good article ๐Ÿ™‚ Waiting is the worst thing ever, though. Especially without a time frame. But it’s worth it. I agree. It’s the hardest part of the relationship, I think. When one person is ready and waiting and going crazy and the other person wants to make them feel better, but they can’t because of reasons A, B, and C. There are always going to be things that are hard, though. It’s something relationships should go through to make them stronger (within reason).
