First of all I am brand new although I have been lurking for a while and gained some awesome knowledge and advice from these forums! I am hoping someone has been through a similar situation and can help me get a better attitude on the situation. I have been with my boyfriend for over 4 years now and we are both in our thirties. One by one, during the time we have been dating, several of our friends have started dating, gotten engaged and then married. I have wanted to marry him since the day we met but it has taken him a little while to warm up to the idea because he had a terrible divorce from his first marriage. I knew this going in so I have been patient with him (not my best quality!) I know that he has taken a stone that he inherited from his mother and had it set into a setting we picked out together but it has been 6 weeks now and still no proposal. He knows how much I want this so is he just not ready? Is he having second thoughts? I am starting to second guess myself and act like a brat which is the wrong thing to do. What do you ladies think? Am I being paranoid or could he be having second thoughts?
