If you had to guess, when do you think your proposal is coming?

2 months? 6 months? One year? Too far to guess?

Just curious if anyone has a rough idea of when the big day will be.

and if not, he is so in trouble (again!) He's had the ring for FOUR MONTHS NOW. I'm dying.


We are going to Vegas to look at venues on March 30th.. and he says it'll be before then! So... we'll see.

6 months to a year for engagement (he''s ready now, I''d prefer to wait, although I do enjoy looking at the pretty blingy ringies!
). Right now, we''re planning on getting married summer of 2011, when I graduate from college.

I''d guess in the next 2 months. The ring has been purchased and SO is ready, so whenever he decides on a creative way to pop the question!

I don''t honestly think HE even knows at this point. A lot of it has to do with WHEN he will get another job and IF he will get his Masters degree. Based on all of that...my best guess is not this year but HOPEFULLY sometime before 2012...

Double Ditto.
Ring is in production, so by the time its completed, and he comes up with a way to ask, I'd say the next 30-45 days.

I''m guessing within the next few months. He has had the ring for at least two months, but I''m just enjoying my LIW time and letting him plan his proposal :) I''m earning my master''s degree next August so we''re hoping for a wedding some time in that area.

He changes his timeframe... in the summer he said a few months, it''s been almost a year. 2 months ago he said he wanted to wait a year. So BLAH.
I''m HOPING and PRAYING for it to be during our 2 year anni trip. Which is in 2 months. But who knows?! /throws up arms

well, we bought a house together this weekend (!!!!!), and close on the 31st of March - so he has just over a month to get a ring on my finger!

He''s talking to Gary at ERD now though, and we both have agreed that we''re not telling anyone about the house until we''re engaged - so he best get moving! It''s killing me keeping the house a secret...but since we won''t have the keys for a month, it makes it a little easier to wait for the engagement before we announce to friends (my parents, of course, know of the house) :)

My bf did ask my dad this saturday for his blessing...to which my father replied, "oh boy....i''ve been dreading this day for 28 years" LOL. but then he was happy and welcomed him to the family :)

You and Tril...I don''t know HOW you guys do it, knowing your SOs have the ring! I''d go insane!

I''m guessing my SO won''t be proposing for a year or more (maybe with his bonus money next year, if they get one?). But one thing I know for sure is that he''ll be slipping that puppy onto my finger the second it''s in his possession. He can''t buy me a gift and not give it to me the moment he gets home from the store! LOL (Maybe that''s why he always waits until the last minute to start shopping! LOL) *Sigh* Oh, how I do love him!

Since I was given the entire year of 2009 as my timeframe, it really could be anytime...LOL

If I had to guess... I would say sometime in the next 4-6 months. (hopefully closer to 4
)

LOL, you got me thinking! I should tell him that I know, and then we'll have like a hostage situation, and I can camp out at his apt, refusing to leave until my demands are met! LOL, that would probably put some fire under his tush!

Or he would leave me for being crazy. But you never know... you push a LIW too far...




ETA: I must be reading too many of TLH's posts! lol

Hopefully we'll have money saved up by the summer sometime, so in the fall maybe? I'll be sure that you ladies will be the first to know when we start seriously shopping.


Oh yeah, and I'm sure now that he's the one for me--just needed a few months (well ok it's been six as of Thursday) actually living together day to day (instead of long-distance) to know it really was what I wanted it to be.


Yay!

hurray! I always admire that people will live together before they get engaged or married. I am too stubbornly independent to do it, but it makes a lot of sense to me! Can''t wait to see the RING!!!

That''s great, Gwen! I''m glad all potential question is now out the door, and you have a for-certain engagement to look forward to! That''s so awesome!

Yay for everyone with engagements coming up soon!

I try not to press for details, but B said it would happen when I''m 25. My birthday is in July, so sometime between this summer and next, and the rest is a surprise. If it happens this year, we''ll be planning a summer 2010 wedding, and if it happens next year, probably spring or summer 2011.

We''ve talked about getting married sometime in 2010 (!) with a year or so to plan before that. So while I''m hoping it will be within the next 6 months, it will almost definitely be before the end of 2009!

I think in the next 2 months.

I''d say there''s a 20% chance it''s in the next few weeks, a 50% chance it''s in the next 2 months, and a 30% chance it''s after May 1.

Sorry, that''s the finance major coming out of me

Well, he refuses to give me a definite timeline.. which could be because he wants to totally surprise me.. or I am totally kidding myself that he''s actually considering proposing
(I''m dramatic too
)

But I''m gonna go with him wanting it to be a total surprise.
We have been ring shopping - and I have a sneaking suspicion that he''s gonna be using his tax return towards a ring


It BETTER be in 2009.. that''s all I''m gonna say!
