Bitter taste to me. He said it is not the right time, but he confesses that in Jan he was looking at rings, for whatever that means. I go home to Europe for 2 weeks. My grandma, who I am very close to, is 94 and has always wanted to see me getting married. My birthday and xmas go by and nothing. One day I almost lose it, and vent to my best friend.

I am basically just about to throw an ultimatum. So again, a part of me is thinking that my ring is still just a dream. February ; he is talking about buying a house with his brother as a property investment. I am about to lose it. Are you kidding me? This is your priority??? You are too concerned with your finanaces to buy a ring but you will put a down payment on a house??? Here I am, March I am bitter, frustrated.

I want to tell him that it is his fault, that him not proposing to me has created a snowball effect, and that something small only got bigger and bigger over the last 2 years. I have talked to him a few times, but it feels like he does not understand me and why this is such a big deal. I have tried saying nothing at all for a few months, threatening,… Nothing works. I have always dreamed of a magic porposal, i am so mad at him for taking all the magic away. Now getting engaged is not even something that makes me dream, it just makes me angry. He really would have to do something spectacular to make it up.

Have an open discussion with him. If your SO is having financial issues it very well could be what is happening.

About Faye

You met in June and started dating right after that. How long had he been separated from his wife? It sounds like this guy jumped from one relationship to another and had no time to be single. On top of that, he had a drawn out divorce and custody battle. I think you were way off base to expect an engagement ring and proposal as soon as the ink dried on his divorce papers. You set yourself up for failure when you started looking at rings and dresses without actually knowing where he stood. If money was an issue he could have bought you a temorary ring. I really hate Pinterest because it gives people so many unrealistic expectations with so many things.

Sorry bee but it sounds like this relationship needs a mercy kill, not a forever commitment. Rip it off like a bandaid—break up, cut ties and move on. Are you even sure he is ready to jump into another marriage so soon? And you are so focus on this perfect proposal, I see no mention of the desire to spend the rest of your life with him.

He might not be in a place to add yet another thing to his plate at this time, which is totally understandable. Have you considered that the other couples might have less drama? So I commend you for writing this. Annie, you are such a terrific person with plenty of insightful wisdom to share with others! I hope the very best for you and will continue to include you in my prayers every now and then.

Keep writing because it is crystal clear that you enjoy doing it and your talent is evident in each and every piece you do. Way to go Annie! Thank you for this, Annie! I am in the exact same boat as you. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
