I Am Ready!!

Ok so people around me are getting engaged left-and-right, and I must say, I have engagement envy.  I send him hints, talk to him about it and even gave him a timeline, I told him I better be engaged in three years.  I am 23, almost 24 and myh original plan was to be engaged by my 25th Birthday. I am sad to say I do not think this is happening.  When ever I mention it, he laughs.  This past Christmas he bought me this diamond "promise" ring.  I love my ring, but I want to be engaged! Am I being too pushy?

I am probably twice your age, but can speak from experience. When I was your age I also wanted to be engaged and married. I was going out with a guy for about 5 or 6 years and basically forced him to give me a ring. We never got married, and now years later I look back and think that if I (or any other woman) resorts to setting deadlines and making threats in order to get her boyfriend to give her a ring and set a date, the marriage was not meant to be. I think of myself and feel that I must have appeared desperate to people around me. No woman should ever have to beg for a man's love.
