SO and I are at a standstill. Our future plans involve one another, and we have no doubt of that. The standstill isn’t even in our relationship, since we’re still growing and learning about each other and it’s just wonderful (99% of the time!)
But SO is going to grad school, or wants to and is just waiting to hear back from schools!
He applied to about 10 or so dental schools and hasn’t heard back anything from any of them, and I can’t talk to him about it because I don’t want him to think I have any doubts of him getting in (I really do believe he will get in, but waiting this long to even hear about an interview is starting to freak me out!) His friend has interviewed at two or three dental schools already, and I know a few other members of his Pre-Dental club have also interviewed, but still no dice for him.
I’m at a standstill. I like to plan thing. I want him to get an interview and get accepted somewhere so we can start planning the next step of our lives. I know I need to take a breath and enjoy our time now, but I feel like I could focus more on NOW if I knew where SO was going to be next year.

I’m in the same boat. Fiance just got out of the army and is going to school and working security but he also applied for the PD and their interview process is long so I can’t plan anything until he gets the job or not =(

Best of luck to your SO and the both of you in general! I can only imagine how nerve wracking it all must be. I’m a planner myself and I know I would be on edge.

@MissS2MrsD: If my SO gets accepted dental school, he will probably be joining the army via the health professionals scholorship, and with that comes the $10k signing bonus… which, SO has hinted, might come with a ring!! At the latest, we’ll know by January 31st which school he’s going to, but that still seems like an eternity!
@Rouquine: Thanks so much!

@Cornmuffin09: You can’t change the situation you’re in so don’t put pressure on yourself (or your SO). It won’t do you any good to worry about what you can’t control, so just enjoy the now and when the time comes to make plans, you’ll be ready to go. Good luck.

@Cornmuffin09: Oh lord, its that stage of waiting where its not you or him but outside forces at play….
*crossing my fingers he hears something soon*
On the brighter side, now HE knows what its like to wait on something you want soo badly.

@Miss T-Rex: Haha, on the one hand I’m really happy it’s outside forces keeping us from getting engaged, but I also feel like outside forces are keeping us from talking about it. I can’t even imagine being engaged anytime soon, but… Girls my age are getting married and having babies! It’s crazy. I’ll be happy to just date for a while, but I do love pretty sparklies….
