SAPPY POST ALERT!
After a near perfect few days with my SO, I was reminded how incredibly lucky I am and that as hard as the waiting is, it’s so worth it. I feel my SO is so perfect for me and can’t imagine spending my life with anyone else. I have teared up multiple times in the last few days just thinking about it.
Sometimes I get caught up in wanting to take the next step with him and focusing too much on the negative aspects, and I forget just how amazing he and our relationship is.
Just thought I’d share. I know it’s tough, but try not to lose sight of your relationship during the waiting process!

@pokie45: I’m one of those who spends long nights crying over wanting a wedding and babies, even though it’s not quite possible yet. I can appreciate this post.

Yes! I am sad that he isn’t ready but gosh I’m grateful that he is in my life. I never knew anyone could be so good, and kind, and caring, and so many things. I’m always surprised when he does things like come home with flowers, or walks over to a friends place to pick me up because it is late and he doesn’t want me to walk home alone. I didn’t think anyone actually did stuff like that regularly and consistently!

Yes! Fiance and I are both in our 30s…both have waited a long time to meet eachother. And I spent years thinking I might never meet someone like Fiance.

Once I got engaged I found out my Fiance had been planning my (quite elaborate) proposal for almost two years. It was worth it.

Now that I know he’s ordered the ring and a proposal is imminent, yes! I feel like I can relax now!

I think these thoughts all the time. He is so wonderful and I’m so happy to have him in my life. I think that it’s so good to focus on the WHY of the waiting. Why you are waiting is because you found a man you want to marry and can’t imagine life without him.

I have those moments every day. Waiting sucks but it is so worth it. Andthe time you do spend waiting is still amazing because of a great relationship. Still waiting but love my SO like crazy and it will be so worth it when that moment comes! 🙂

Positive waiting is the BEST kind of waiting, and I’ve been waiting positively, too 🙂
The following article changed my negative thinking and has kept me sane during the wait:
Since you’ve found the good in waiting, like me…let’s keep the good feelings circulating…

I don’t know that I would consider myself waiting since he has bought the ring and just not picked it up yet. We have also set a date and I have my dress, etc. but I am reminded a lot of how lucky I am to be with him. I woke up last night throwing up and he held my hair back and ran my bath for me. Got me clean Pjs and plugged in a heating pad because i had chills. He is so sweet to me and I know how lucky I am.

I was sick this weekend- who likes to be sick? Yuck. SO stopped at a grocery store and came out with losenges, decongestant medication, a nasal inhaler, and 2 boxes of tissues (one was anti-viral and one was with lotion). SO waited on me hand and foot and served me meals in bed. When SO had to leave me on Sunday, he stopped by 3 different grocery stores to get all the best soups that I could eat while he was gone that day. It made me remember how thoughtful and caring and selfless he is- not that I forgot, but waiting can be frustrating sometimes. It’s nice to have reminders that its worth the wait!! He’s a keeper!!

YES. I know my SO has ordered the ring and it has arrived. Although I’m tired and glad the wait is almost over, I am still sappy that I have found the love of my life. It’s definitely the little things. I work up early and walked our pup this morning so my SO could sleep in a little longer. He thought that was so sweet and he went and got me starbucks (my fav) before I left to work. ohhh bee’s I love this man!
