I feel you.

I am no close to engagement than I expected.

I have taken a new job and travelled quite a bit during this year and I expect to grow some more and travel some more next year too.

While I understand that our relationship has progressed in terms of communication and dedication and I think that this looks as though we have a good foundation, upgrading commitment is still an issue so I think I will be having a hard time for the next few months over the holidays. Wow, I didn’t see myself in this position!!! I am soooooo bummed.

We bought a house and a furbaby. That’s pretty big progress. No ring yet though. Should be VERY soon but I am starting to go a little crazy!

Well, I had moved 300 miles to be with my true love, a year ago, we had just finished our first month living together, and were unofficially engaged. I was blissfully happy, and I’m glad to say that is still the case. It’s hard to believe it’s been over a year since I moved here. It was the best decision I ever made.

Considering this time last year we hadn’t even reached the six month mark yet (Christmas Day) and had just said “I love you” to each other, and now we’re planning on getting married and saving up for a ring and a watch. Oh and considering moving in together. So a lot has happened and sometimes I wonder if we’re moving too fast considering we’ have yet to reach the 18 month mark but it just feels right. I just hope it lasts foreverEmbarassed

Hmh, I was a new at my current job, and moved to a new flat and now weddingplanning, and my dad passed away which have meant a huge thing for me and family of course.. Other than that, everything has been the same.

This time last year I was 6 months pregnant and convinced I was getting a proposal for my bday/christmas/new years even though he said I wasn’t πŸ˜›

I was manager at my store and dealing with bitchy, lazy employees who no longer work there.

I was very excited to have our baby and start our lives as a family. It’s been a great year for all 3 of us, and now the proposal I’ve wanted all along is finally on the horizon! Just a couple more months <3

Last year at this time I had a timeline, but I was not engaged. Since engagement, it is hard to imagine my life with Fiance not being my Fiance (and I can’t remember what it was like to not wear a ring)! However, I can remember that at this time last year I was very ansty for engagment and was pretty frustrated. Didn’t care about Christmas gifts/birthday celebrations – just wanted him to propose!

Hang in there, ladies!

@soyjoy222: Thanks! I like hearing from prior waitingbees πŸ™‚

 

Let’s see, this time last year I was trying to finish up my first semester as a teacher… I was stressed! I was thinking about him proposing but trying not to obsess over it.  Now, I’m a lot less stressed with work πŸ˜‰ and I know a proposal is coming next month!!  The days are moving slowly for me. haha!

Hmmm. I was house hunting, living with my guy and another roommate in our tiny tiny apartment. I was wondering what I was getting for Christmas and we had just talked about where he saw our relationship. We agreed that if he didn’t feel hot about marrying me that he would let me know the following spring.

And now we’re making my ring. πŸ™‚

This time last year I hadn’t even found Weddingbee yet, I don’t think! I may have started reading the blogs by this point but I definitely didn’t get on the boards until at least January 2011.

November 2010, hmm…I was still in school, still working my awful retail job, and right about this time I was fretting over whether I’d have to work Black Friday or not. (Luckily I didn’t have to!) I was also positive I wanted to marry then-SO/now-FI and was trying to figure out a way to bring it up to him. We had decided to live together once he graduated college in May 2011.

Fast-forward to now…we’ve both graduated, we live together in a duplex in the suburbs, we’re engaged!, we both have stable jobs in our chosen fields that pay well, and we are looking into adopting our first fur baby (either a cat or a dog, not sure which will come first!). A lot can happen in a year, waiting ladies…my life has done a complete 180° from last November to today. Just hang in there!!
