@kanneb:  Sorry Kanneb. 

PMSing and Waiting ARE THE WORST COMBINATION EVER.  Peep my waiting post from today and last Friday…lol.  Yeah, the angry bitter depressed waiting bee visits during these moments for me too so I totally understand where you are coming from.

Hang in there, and I know it sucks but maybe there is still a chance it was they were calling about a delivery?  I don’t know many jewelry stores that call just for sales…

@kanneb:  Has the jeweler ever called you about sales before?

 

I’ve never heard of a jeweler calling to announce sales in my area but I do get e-mails from them.  If a store called me to announce a sale I would be irritated.  I don’t mind recieving e-mails because I gave them my e-mail address for that purpose but I would not like getting a phone call and having them disrupt my day to let me know about a sale.

I think its possible that the phone call was unrelated to the sale! 🙂

I’m sorry you’re disappointed. I know the way you are feeling all too well. Waiting was so hard for me because, like you, I kept getting hopeful, and then disappointed. It happened pretty much every weekend toward the end. I had my “perfect” proposal in mind, and it seemed like everybody in the world was getting engaged. Every Friday I was excited thinking ‘THIS IS IT!’ because I have seen an email or heard him making a call (I fished for every. damn. indication), and then every Sunday I was disappointed and irritated.

Nothing will make waiting easier, unfortunately, but I can tell you this: when you are finally engaged, all of that frustration and anxiety goes right away. I thought I’d be bitter that it had taken so long, but all of that went right out the window when it finally happened. Keep your chin up, try not to fixate on any hints or clues you may think exist (which I know is downright impossible), and know that someday soon, you’ll forget what you were disappointed about.

Good luck!

@kanneb:  🙂

 

I just went and reread your previous post.  So you just went into the store and wrote down your BFs name and your ring choices?  Right???  Or was your BF present during this?

If you just went and wrote down his name and your preferences alone I think they would not call your BF without him coming in and shopping first. 🙂

@kanneb:  Awe crap! I received calls every time a certain store had sales. I gave my number because I didnt want them to call FI and harass him about how many times i’d been in to try on my ring 😉 I’m sorry, I know it’s hard. Waiting, and PMSing and birthdays are a horrific combo… Wine? do you have wine? Or icecream! God I hope you’re not on a diet! lol Really, have a bitch-fest with a girlfriend and remember that this is only temporary! Every bee on here was there once, so we get it. Let it out, then pick up and move on. Happy early Birthday!

He bought the ring or he didn’t. 

Have a glass of wine and try to forget about it for now.  Better yet, just tell him you’re feeling poo-y and need a massage and for him to pick you up some ice cream and wine.  🙂

@kanneb:  Bah, of course! This crap only happened to me when I was dieting too… Why cant it happen when I can stuff my face guilt-free? Because then i’d be as big as a house, thats why! lol kick-boxing… and lots of it.. I’m sure that’ll help 🙂

Ahhhh I know how you feel! My SO and I are temporarily living in Latin America for his job, so we won’t be getting engaged until we’re back in the states (for many reasons: it would be impossible to get a ring down here, it’s not safe to wear jewelry out on the streets, we have a lot of other things going on right now, etc.). BUT! We are going on my DREAM vacation to this amazing beach town in Uruguay in February, and I keep thinking, “DUDE, so much built in romance! Propose then!” But I know he won’t, so I have to keep reminding myself to chill out, it’s not happening.

Do you have a timeline? For me, even though it won’t happen on this great trip we’re taking, knowing that it WILL happen next year makes me a little calmer about the waiting.
