@Miss Yoga Pants: I hate it when I get in those moods because I want to be happy that a waiting girl finally got her ring, but I know what you mean. I have had times when I just put “Congratulations” rather than something nice because I am angry at my bf again.

 

-You know you have been waiting too long when… your friends are having engagement dreams about you.

@cr6zy: Hahahaha, I did that a few months ago, too! Our ‘special date’ wasn’t to a DQ, but rather a local mom & pop ice cream shop, but still, lol! We went to the movies before hand, though.

Funny how most of us have the exact same thoughts and similar situations happen to us.

Here’s one that just happened to me…The cashier at the grocery store asked how long the bf and I have been married and the bf says “oh we aren’t…but we’ve lived together for 3 years”.  The cashier was like “whats the deal?!” and when we were leaving he tells me “don’t let him wait too long!” It was at that point I knew I’ve been waiting too long haha.

How about this one–when you go to Red Lobster with your SO, in normal clothes (jeans, cute t-shirt, not much makeup) on a Sunday night and the waitress asks if you are celebrating anything tonight.  Do we just have that look to us or what??!! (and yes, I WISH we had been celebrating something….)

@waitingstill:Yeah my bf definitely found the whole exchange amusing.  I think he was even a little proud that the guy thought we were married. :-/  oh well! Whenever we(well…I) hear comments about that, he just blows them off.  I think its harder for us ladies.

When you have a dream of the proposal, crying and all, then wake up looking at your ring finger and it’s empty!! It takes all my energy not to kick him out of the bed while he’s so content!!

“Waiting longer than you originally expected; 30% of your hope. Seeing those around you getting what they want; 90% of your jelousy. Finally getting the ring and proposal you’ve always dreamed of… priceless”

There are some things not worth waiting for. On your proposal day, its all well worth the wait!

Trust me, we don’t enjoy making you wait any longer than needed. In fact I base my whole life around one rule: “A happy Miss Coffee equals a happy Mr Coffee”. It’s a very stressfull time for the man to… finding, buying, planning, and preparing for your proposal day. As for me, I made Miss Coffee wait a very long time before placing that ring on her finger. However, once that ring is one… all that stress, worry, and doubt washes away.

Mr Coffee

@Mr. Coffee: Please talk to my boyfriend, lol! Thanks for making sense of all of this.  I just wish this was one topic in which I could talk to him more about it. It is so hard being left in the dark and not knowing when the ONE THING that you want most in life is going to happen.  I appreciate a guy’s perspective–please feel free to peruse the waiting boards and give advice, I think we could all benefit from a man’s POV on some of these topics!! 🙂

When the priest asks you and your man after mass on Sunday if you’ve set a wedding date yet, and you have to flash your naked, un-ringed hand to convince him that you REALLY aren’t engaged yet.

Happened this weekend…sigh…

When everytime your bf says “How come?” or “Why not?” you respond by sticking your empty ring finger in his face….regardless of the question.

Him: “Why didn’t you remind me to call so-and-so back?”

Me: (see picture)

@Mr. Coffee: I dunno, Mr. Artichokey likes to see me squirm a bit I think. He’s being such a trickster…purposefully bringing up my ring and stone the other day when I’d been doing SUCH a good job of not mentioning them. He knows I can interrogate him to the point of caving (or giving it away) and I thought I’d be nice and keep quiet while I’m waiting, meanwhile, going insane thinking about my ring every minute of the day. Now that he’s brought it up he told me that it was weirding him out. He knew that I knew that the stone was purchased but I wasn’t grilling him. AND apparently he enjoys when I grumble under my breath about him. It is pretty funny but I thought I was being nice by not grumbling and not telling him that I had tried to hack into his jewlery store account 15 different ways. Turns out, I was creeping him out by not being my pesky, ridiculous self. So, I told him that he’d broken the silence on the ring and he can feel comforted by a ton of grumbling in the next few days/weeks. Usually my grumbling goes something like this:

“Bad man. He’s so mean. Meanest man I’ve ever known. He’s such a bad man. Doesn’t even give her flowers for her anniversary. And no present. And he stole her last two dollars. He probably doesn’t even like her. He probably hates her. Probably just lives with her because he likes her cooking. He’s probably just waiting and then one day he’s going to steal the puppies and make off with them and she’ll be all alone and sad. Probably won’t ever marry her. Nope, doesn’t want to. She’s going to have an empty, naked finger forever and ever and ever. Because he’s a bad man.”

I tend to say it all pretty quickly and usually i’m talking to one of the dogs but we’re sitting next to each other on the sofa. He usually cracks up about two sentences in but I always do my best to keep my grumbling up until I hit on all points, culminating at the lack of ring issue.

I’m also giving him the stink eye a few times a day and questioning what came in the mail, what’s in his pocket, and threatening to check his sock drawer. He sees my stink eye and cracks up. I realize I’m pretty comical about it all and it’s all very light hearted. But really, I think Mr. Artichokey prefers to laugh at me more than anything. Bad man. Laughing at my expense. I feel another grumble coming on.

– Random people assume you are married…  to the point of randomly writing your last name as YourName-HisName.  Yeah, everything I get from the gym has his last name.  I will really need to hide the gym coupons when my grandparents visit…

– You have agreed on all your future kids’ names.

– Your parents have stopped harassing you about when you’ll get married, and are even bringing your grandparents out to visit you.

– Your grandma has accepted that you are living with your boyfriend, despite being the first person in family history to do so.
