Hi fellow Waiting bees,
I just finished reading the best book, specifically written for “waiting” ladies like us. It’s called “His Cold Feet” and I found it made me feel a lot more at peace with where I’m currently at in our relationship. It talks about why men typically take longer than women to get engaged, and it also discusses different ways to handle the infamous pre-engagement limbo. It also has really helpful tips on how to talk to your guy about getting married (which is not the easiest thing to do). I promise I’m not affiliated with the author or publisher in any way – I didn’t even realize ther were books out there for pre-engaged ladies until I stumbled upon it on Amazon. I just really found it helpful & thought other Waiting Bees might enjoy it too.
I bought it for about $9 on my Kindle (so my BF couldn’t see the title) & finished it in a few hours – it’s a pretty quick, easy & fun read. I already virtually “loaned” it to my best friend, who’s in the same stage as I am.
Some of my favorite quotes from the book:
“Putting too much thought into what he thinks and not enough into what you think takes away your power. Don’t worry about how you’re being evaluated. (“Does he want to marry me?”) Do some evaluating yourself. Decide what you want and how that can be accomplished. That in itself will bring you back to feeling empowered and like that confident woman that you are.”
“Keep a sense of humor. This is a fun time in your life. Try to see each moment for what it is—a time when you’re in love and possibly starting a future together.”
“Remember that “We” comes before “I” in wedding. (Sounds like this one fits from pre-to post-wedding.)”
