I have been with my boyfriend for over three and a half years now, and I believe the time is finally right for us to get engaged and start planning a wedding! I would have loved to marry him the year we got together, but we made the decision to wait until we both graduated college first. He and I should both be graduating December 2016, so we are hoping to get married sometime after that in 2017. I am not expecting him to propose any time soon, but just believing this is going to be the year makes me feel so excited for a new chapter of our lives to begin. We are waiting until marriage to live together and have sex, so getting engaged will not be much different. However, I am still excited to be a little closer to becoming husband and wife. What about you, bees? Do you think this will be the year you two get engaged? Has there been something holding you two back?

22 more sleeps for me… I think! He’s got a mini getaway planned, is super excited and the ring’s been hidden in the house for over a month. I think 2016 will be the year of planning for me and my SO!! YAYYYYYY such an exciting time, isn’t it??! 😊😊💍🎉

When we last discussed it we agreed that it would happen in the next six months!! So before the end of June, I’m so excited.

We have been more than 4,5 years together, I have had many ups and downs related to him not proposing yet, but I believe he is going to do it this year (I know he has a ring). If he doesn’t.. Well, I am going to either kill him or kick him out of our house 😀 Ok, I am joking, but I will not wait until our 5th years mark.

Definitely! I am 99% sure it’ll happen before the end of May.
Nothing holding us back, really. We’re enjoying our relationship and haven’t even been together 2 years yet, so we aren’t in a rush or a time crunch. I’m definitely excited to get engaged and married, and to take those steps with my SO, which is why I’m here.

I wish I could say yes, unfortunately we had a discussion last week about it and he tends to believe it shouldn’t be discussed as he wants it to be a complete surprise (kinda hard after over 4 years, a child and with combined finances). Apparently he had been saving money secretly for a ring but he just deposited it into the account after the argument and spent some of it on himself. So. Yeah. No ring money anymore.

The timeline he gave was by next month and I found the ring SO IT VERY WELL BETTER HAPPEN IN 2016!

We are going to discuss it again later this year. No surprises here, only moving forward as a team. We are older and see no need for the formalities that so often surround engagement and marriage. That being said…I neeeeeeed a sparkly. Lol.

My SO purchased the diamond and will be purchasing the setting next. He is absolutely horrible at holdling onto gifts and keeping secrets so I think a proposal is in our very near future. I’m nearly 32 years old so I am anxious to get the ball going!!

- Wedding: October 2017 - Wedgewood Tower Club
We’ve had numerous discussions about the matter, and I’m almost positive we’ll be engaged by April (in time for a big trip to New Orleans for his family reunion).
This is good…because I’ve already booked us an engagement photography session in Disneyland in May! LOL.

- Wedding: June 2018 - Omaha, NE
I’m expecting it by May since that’ll be the end of the semester and I just can’t imagine going into summer not being engaged! He’s been planning/saving for a few months now and we’ve got tax returns coming up and are making a big effort to budget in 2016 and beyond, plus we’ve already discussed exactly what I want 🙂 He tells me all the time that he’s going to marry me and that he’s just waiting til he’s saved up enough to get me my dream ring!
I’m so excited!

I can’t say it with 100 percent confidence but I feel very hopeful. My SO just started a new job and is now suddenly the “breadwinner” of our household, after I was supporting both of us on my income for the past 4 years. He’s also been displaying some odd behavior lately like having a sudden interest in opening a joint checking, buying a house, and today he randomly called me during work just to say hi and that he was thinking of me. Lol. I think it may actually be the year!

Me! Me! Me! (Raises hand in the air) HOPEFULLY only 38 more days for me. He has the ring and something special planned for February And my mom knows what it is 😱! We are (also hopefully) going to close on our house by the end of this month or first week of February so it should happen shortly after that! We’ve been together 7 years now and I believe it is finally the perfect time for us. I’m so excited!
Excited for all of you other waiting bees as well!
