@littlemoon1001:  This made my day! I have been with my SO for 8 1/2 years and so i def know how you feel… I have my days where I get down, depressed and feel like everywhere I turn someone is getting engaged or married and im over here like “WTH?? why not me??”….. but knowing that I would spend the rest of my life with my SO regardless and that it will happen when its right, makes me feel a little bit better..

I hope you get your ring soon!

One of my coworkers just came back from vacation.  I’d talked to her several times yesterday, but at one point happened to see a bit fat engagement ring on her hand. Not wanting to make a scene, I just said “um…was that a ring you’ve always worn?” and she said “No…______ asked me to marry him! I didnt know how to tell you because you’ve been waiting so long….”

I was totally taken aback: I know I talk *alot* about wanting my BF to propose, but felt horrible that someone I consider a friend hid such good news from me to spare my feelings. It’s kind of made me take a new attitude about it.

@littlemoon1001:  I kind of know how you feel– and isn’t it great to finally not have the waiting be painful anymore? 

That’s quite a story you and your SO have! It’s great that you ended up together and are sure about each other. ๐Ÿ™‚

I was miserable waiting for several months until I sorted through some of my own hangups about the relationship and got up the guts to ask my partner a couple things. Now we have semi-agreed that 2015 should be our year, and have been talking about rings– such a relief! I am able to wait without angst finally. Phew!

It does suck that you got some unpleasant comments when you first came on here– it seems to me like this forum goes through cycles of people being snarky and grouchy a couple times a year (mostly around the holidays and Valentine’s Day) and the rest of the time it’s great. Unless people somehow get the wrong impression. . . I had that experience a couple times, and because often peole only look at the first post and not the updates, you get a few people assuming things and being unhelpful and sometimes rude. But that doesn’t usually happen. If does, ignore ’em! ๐Ÿ™‚

@littlemoon1001:  awwww thats so sweet!!! even if i never get engaged/married, i’m ok with us. I’m a little scared of marriage actually, i think it changes people and sometimes its for the good, sometimes not. I’d love the ring to symbolize our unity. To formerly say this is my husband, instead of spouse….lol. tired of being the gf after nearly 4 years.

@littlemoon1001:  I think I’m almost where you are! There are still days that I doubt myself and wonder why SO hasn’t done it but then there are days where I’m so excited about our relationship now and I love him so much. & I’ve gotten a glimmer of hope from hearing from our mutual friend that SO has brought up a proposal & how much he really wants to do it!
