You are very lucky that your man is so willing to not only speak openly about the timeline, but participate in wedding planning with you before the proposal! I say proposal, and not engagement, because let’s face it — most of us here really are “engaged” to be married. We’ve agreed with our SO’s on having a wedding in the near future and getting hitched. We’re just waiting for those four little magic words and to put a ring on it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Try to think of it that way!!

I’m glad your pup is doing well and I look forward to hearing about the proposal when it happens! Do you know what the ring is like or is he keeping a very good secret?

I was in almost the exact same situation last summer.  My Boyfriend or Best Friend even told me last fall that he had planned on proposing last summer, but just didn’t quite feel ready.  At that point we were both in school and everyone around us was getting engaged, so he just felt a lot of pressure.  I was really, really bummed (especially since he specifically told me he was thinking about it and decided not to. Haha… thanks babe).

We talked about it, and mutually decided to wait one more year.  I’m still waiting on that proposal, almost a year later, but I think waiting has made our relationship SO much stronger.  When you realize that this person is willing to wait for you no matter what, it can truly make you love each other more.  It’s certainly not always enjoyable… but at least we can say that we did what was right for US and that we made the decision to wait for the right reasons.

I just thought of this too that I forgot to say last post.

Even though I struggle with being jealous over my friends’ engagements, and think that it will NEVER happen…. one thing that we can say is that we still have our amazing proposals to look forward to!!  Whenever you get down, think of it that way… you still have it to look forward to, you can still be excited and wonder HOW it will happen, you still have the time of telling everyone to look forward to.  All to soon it will be a distant memory; treasure this time of anticipation, even though it’s tough.

That works for me and I hope it helps you too!! ๐Ÿ™‚
