I’m moving in with my boyfriend in a couple months, and so my “project” is to decorate the house.  He is already living there (a place he bought before we met) and so that’s what I do to keep my mind off engagement.  Although it doesn’t fully work since I”m on the ‘bee everyday still. ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s funny but when I’m around my SO I barely think about getting engaged. The second he’s not around is a whole other story. But I try to make myself busy. We are both foodies (and big eaters) so a lot of our time is spent finding new places and eating out. Just find something you are passionate about and go for it. Or, since you are moving in together in a few months you could occupy your time with apartment searching. And if all else fails, I just jump on here and read till it’s all out of my system. 

I’m 23, soon to be 24 (my SO is 29), and I constantly hear, “You’re so young. You have all  the time in the world.” And granted, 5 years in your early 20’s isn’t the same as 5 years of dating in your 30’s. But I think people fail to remember that 5 years is still 5 years. It’s still waiting. It still requires a certain level of patience and faith in your relationship. It sounds like he’s on board so I wouldn’t worry too much. Can’t wait to hear how it happens. Smile

I totallt agree with claiareos: I mostly think about this kind of stuff when he’s not around! I think finding ways to occupy yourself is the best solution. I find working out to be helpful- it both gets my mind off the relationship, and makes me feel like I’m only making myself an ultimately cuter bride.

@PLstillwaiting: hi honey, welcome! just a litle heads up, i recently moved in with my bf and it makes the waiting so much harder being around him all the time. because i’m so happy, i just want to be his wife already!! so if you’re already having a hard time waiting, i would suggest you consider not moving in until he does propose. i’m not telling you what to do just trying to help. and good luck with the wait, i hope it’s not much longer!
