I enjoyed reading your posts! You're literary creativity is quite amusing :)

I don't have much to add, but I do like the idea of taking some time away. It's truly amazing how our significant others act/react when we leave them for a few days!

Bit of an update


So it seems my darling LL has been a bit proactive as of late. He's email the jeweler we'd gone to visit back in November with some additional questions. Told me so himself. Additionally, there are other signs pointing toward a proposal that could very well happen this month! Holy cow, I'm so excited....

Wait a minute, hold on... was that giddiness? Was I giddy just now? Could there have been a slightly manic clapping of excited hands and a possible "Eeeeee" of delight? Is there not some sort of age cutoff for squealing? Honestly, I'm 32! An alarm should have gone off somewhere, or I should have been carded and fined? I'll have to do something 30's now just to feel good about myself again. I'll need a latte and a copy of Sex and the City season 2, stat!

I truly do not know myself any longer...but Eeeeeee, I just know he's going to do it! LL is proposing soon and I'm going to get married!

hehehe I don't think there's an age cut off for girlish squeeling! We should all have a reason to squeal every now and again!! :) Enjoy the giddiness while you have it!

I'll admit, it's quite freeing to be able to be this excited about something. There aren't many other times in life when an all out squeal of joy would be appropriate.

Dear Betty,

Let me "propose" something to you.

Maybe LL is waiting until you are completely, totally, NOT thinking about any wedding. He wants to catch you by surprise.

I said it before, I'll say it again. Get involved with the other aspects of your life. Forget the wedding, forget the proposal, put all that on ice.

When you are most involved with the rest of your life, that will be the moment of surprise.

Yeah, I know you're excited. But, go back to your regularly scheduled programming for a while.

AOTB: I see what you're saying about forgetting. However... my boyfriend and I are both in our late 20s, have known each other many years, live together, etc. "Forgetting" that I have found the man I want to spend the rest of my life with and the fact that I want it to be official..... is impossible. I have friends, a demanding career, etc. Doesn't matter. LoL! I'm with digbride.... Even among the other things in my life, there is always time for a little grown up giddiness and squeals.

Marriage works because they had a shared sense of humor, mutual respect of an awesome depth, faith that they were brought together by a force greater than themselves and a love so unwavering and pure that it is sacred.

I'm trying to put it out of my mind, but the fact that my birthday is one week from today has me wondering if that's the day. Probably not though eh (ya I said eh, I'm in Canada)? Too obvious?

I need a hobby to take my mind off of this, or maybe a case of temporary amnesia.


It's great meeting you all, by the way!

Update: Getting suspicious!

LL just text messaged me out of the blue to ask if I was sure about a specific detail I'd mentioned regarding my ring...call me paranoid if you want, but I'd call that I sign that something is in the works. He isn't the type to randomly bring up such details, PLUS he just informed his dad of his intentions to pop the big Q! Feels like something's happening here! Stay tuned!

Um, sorry about the overuse of exclamation points.

Digwriter, I knew when FH bought my ring I didn't however know when or where he was planning on asking... All he told me was soon... hmm soon could mean a million things. I tried brushing it off and found that next to impossible. Until FH moved to Ohio after leaving the Army. At that point my hope was deflated.

He moved back to Va in August and the proposal was nowhere in my head. I was so shell shocked about it and I can honestly say that it was so worth it. It does sound like LL is working something up but just in case don't get too excited or put too much emphasis on a birthday proposal imagination... That could be a HUGE let down. I can't wait to hear how he proposes when he finally does!

Can't wait to be  a Mrs.

Hi DRM,

I know exactly what you mean. I'm trying not to get all worked up thinking about it. Trying to just wait it out and see what happens. You're right though, It's not easy at all.

So glad to hear that you got the proposal you were waiting for. I'm sure it's totally worth it in the end.

My boyfriend keeps playing with me. One day he'll say something like, "have you got a ring picked out yet, because you'll need it soon!" Then the next he'll say, "We'll get engaged in a few years when I finish my doctorate." He knows he's driving me crazy, and he's loving the hell out of it.

Ah well, though. I've still got to get my degree, so no rush.

I'm convinced that men really enjoy dragging this out as long as possible, knowing full well that it drives us crazy.

What a great thread. I have really enjoyed reading it so far. I understand the advice about thinking about other things, and I do see the merit in that. However, you're only going to be going through this process once (hopefully) and I think it's fun to be able to enjoy each stage. I'm new to the board, and waiting for my boyfriend to propose (we both want to wait a little while), but I really enjoy beginning to plan and reading stories about other women who are in a similar place in their lives.

I've enjoyed reading your posts, from one type A bride to another, I get where you are coming from! I hope you get your ring and proposal soon! I'm in a different predicament, where we've picked the date and started "checking things out" but no ring yet. But that's a different story, lol.
