I’m in the same boat, Chica.  I know it isn’t coming this month…or next month…or the month after that…or the month after that.  I think I’ll be lucky if it comes in May.  (Golden Gate Bridge proposal anyone?)  I still hold out a glimmer of hope that he sees how much it hurts, and accellerates his plans.  There are a thousand “perfect” moments in the next week…or the next month…or the next 3 months.  It’s just a matter of him picking one and running with it.

I’m the same! I know it’s not coming until April/May (he really wants to wait until we’re in our own apartment, not sharing a house with roomies), but I’m holding out hope for sooner! Although, I don’t find it *that* hard to wait because he said I can go ahead with planning as long as I don’t set anything in stone yet.

I know how you feel! I realistically know it won’t happen anytime soon so idk why a little voice in the back of my mind says “ooooh this would be the perfect proposal moment!”

I think we all (almost all) do it. We are waiting for it, anticipate it so much, are so hopeful that everytime it doesn’t happen, then hope takes over again for the next “time”. You aren’t alone in this.

Has anyone else shot down the staircase to the words “honey hurry up I have surprise!” to be confronted with the pet doing some dumb trick? Realistically I know he doesn’t even have the ring I but I keep hoping maybe he is throwing me off to surprise me.

I felt that way too… and he ended up surprising me earlier then I thought! I thought for sure he would wait until our year anniversary to propose, but still for every holiday/vacation I would start to hope. And he did end up proposing a month before our year anniversary!

I think it’s ok to hope, just don’t drive yourself crazy with it.
