Don’t post on Wedding Bee!  You’ll drive yourself nuts.  Just don’t think about it.  Focus on school, focus on being 25 (I am jealous kinda), focus on YOU.  =)

 

PS Sometimes when I try to write a smiley face it comes out like this -) and I think, cyclops!

I kept myself busy with my friends, I took some classes at the local community college and met new people. I think he got scared that I was out to find myself and he would not be included. lol 

and also what she said 🙂 @peachacid:

If you’re going back to school for nursing, you will be plenty busy! Just hang in there until then.

Honestly, as much as I love the Bee, I was TORTURING myself with it before I got engaged. The more I read on here, the more I thought about marriage, and the more I nagged my FI, and the more he pushed back the proposal so I’d actually be surprised when he did it. I know its easy to say now that I’m on the other side of things.. but put your energy into your schooling, friends, exercise, and maintaining the relationship that makes you want to marry your SO in the first place. Its okay to gently talk about the future to make sure you are both on the same page, but if you already know you will be getting engaged in the forseeable future, don’t nag him! Good luck 😉

@memo:  I waited for 8.5 years (we met at 18/19 i’m now 27).. it took me until 6 years before I started to get the point across to him and it took FI another year and a half before he had the cash for the ring!… I just kept imagining how happy i’d be with my ring knowing i’d be engaged, i.e driving my car – seeing my ring finger and thinking – one day… and sure enough after enough patience it appeared – and still to this day – when i drive my car – i glance at my ring and think – every moment waiting was worth the wait. Hang in there and make them most of every special moment.
