I’m not waiting (anymore) but I think your business trip couldn’t come at a better time! Maybe it will help renew your feelings in a way when you realize you’re thinking of eachother while apart. Plus, it sounds like an exciting trip!

Other ideas? I don’t know. I sucked during my “waiting phase” and generally just tried to keep my mouth shut for certain periods of time. haha.

I would honestly create some goals for yourself and get excited about that. I hated waiting however while I was waiting, I started a savings fund for the wedding and set up goals to contribute xxx amount to it per week. Then, I started looking into getting more financially sound- learning about different investments and etc. since in marriage, money is usually the cause for divorce. I got myself preoccupied with all of that and of course ever now and then looked at different rings I would want and my dream ring and that really helped with passing time. Once I started getting preoccupied with $$$, especially for my future wedding, the engagement talks came to a screeching halt, so much so that my then boyfriend took notice. Then HE started talking about engagements, to the point it was driving ME crazy and we had to have another talk. A few weeks later, he bought the ring and proposed.
