Aww, patience isn’t really one of my virtues, either, girl!

How long have you been together?

@smiley3: Oh, that’s not long! ๐Ÿ™‚ I thought you were going to say like eight years… ๐Ÿ˜‰

We had a 1.5-year engagement, and we really needed all that time. At first it seemed too long, but remember that life doesn’t stop. We had to juggle all of our other responsibilities AND plan a wedding, so I don’t know how we could have done it in much less time. I think it will be just right for you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

My SO laughs because while I say patienceis a virtue I do not possess, he swears I am patient. It gets better. And some days… it just sucks. That’s when the bees come in handy ๐Ÿ™‚

Good Luck. Hopefully it comes soon! I think even the bee’s with the most patience in the world gets anxious and impatient when it comes to waiting. It just does something to us.

Good luck! Waiting is hard, but it will all be worth it when he gets down on one knee!

At least, that’s what I keep telling myself, lol.

I agree with @tea – being patient doesn’t make it any better or faster. But, it does cut down on the stress and the fights that can come as a result of the stress. Being impatient won’t make it come any sooner, but it can drive you crazy. I speak from experience. I’ve been very patient, but the last couple of days it’s been hard. Today… I’m having my own horrible waiting day. But it’ll pass.
