If you’ve been following my rollercoaster of waiting emotions (like so many of you), you’ll know my SO now has the money, has had numerous opportunities to ask my father for his blessing (which have not been taken), and we have decided to pick a ring together for him to later propose with another time.
Well I have been working hard to accept all of those things, I’m not the most patient person, and I am a control freak too.
So I keep checking myself to not get upset, but this weekend my friend from University got married to her SO. The pictures are beautiful, so beautiful I want to cry, they’re so happy and ARGH. I don’t want to be jealous, but GODDAMNIT!
Why aren’t we engaged?! Why aren’t we planning or at least dreaming together about a wedding and being hunband and wife?!
We had a really sweet moment Sunday morning in bed, we realised we had been together for 5 and a half years that morning. Ah so romantic and sweet. And nothing.
I keep reading about other Bees’ SO’s not being ready, or being ready and not having the money or blessing or whatever it is they want/need. But SO has assured me he is ready, has the money and has had the opportunity to ask my dad so many times, but WHY HASN’T HE?!
Sorry for ranting, but really happy for, and jealous of my beautiful bride friend, and annoyed with my situation.

RhianfaHW: I feel you! My engagement ring and wedding band (passed down from great grandmother and grandmother.) are sat by my kettle with a wedding planner book (that SO bought me).
This weekend 2 friends got married, 1 got engaged and another booked her wedding!
I’m trying not to rant and throw a tantrum, but really?!?
Maybe some positive thinking to try to not let it bug us – easier said than done!

thefuturemrswindowcleaner: That sounds hard!
Maybe it’s because I’m slightly hung over from a wine-tastic evening with my friend and neighbour, but I feel extra annoyed about it today.
I know we’ll all get there, and after all it’s not a race.
Best of luck x

RhianfaHW: and to you 🙂
yes, our time will come 🙂
it is hard especially when we have 3 children – I don’t want the wedding I want the marriage.

RhianfaHW: You are not alone. My S/O has the ring somewhere. We talk about where we are going to get married. We literally sit for hours watching youtube proposals, but I still don’t have my ring. I finally asked if he ever planned on proposing before I died and he answered my question with a question. ARRGGGH!!

I feel your pain. My boyfriend and I have been together 4 1/2 year and I feel like we are no closer to the next step. The ring is in the house (and has been for about a month, not long at all) but I have a feeling it will be sitting above the fridge forever. He isnt know for his planning skills, I tend to make all the plans, and I know this isnt something that I can nag him about.
