@southsun:  We are almost in the same position girlfriend! I KNOW that nothing will happen on Valentines day…but a small part of me is still hoping for it. Why? Im not sure. I was doing really well for 3+ months. Just throw yourself into hobbies until you become consumed by them, literally! I got a trainer and made working out my thing. Going to the gym at 5am plus school and working all day makes for a busy me. I am also helping a good friend plan her wedding, while planning her shower and bachelorette party as well. Its hard, but you can do it! Just find something and commit! Also, focus on being thankful for you have with your SO, that helped me a lot. I KNOW its going to happen at some point, and that should really be enough. But us girls always take things to the next level in our heads, haha. Good Luck!

@southsun:  It is super hard. I am not even close (im pretty sure) I think it will be next year BUT i would be lying if i said there wasn’t a small part of me that is still hoping for it.

Totally irrational lol, but I guess we just can’t help ourselves.

Eek, you have to just force yourself.. I honestly wish I could go back to the time before I got engaged and have not worried about getting engaged.. If I could get you to do one thing, it would be to enjoy being with your SO and trust that he will propose eventually. Plus it’ll be more of a shock and surprise when he does!

@southsun:  

I’ve tried everything. My hobbies, schoolwork, focusing on the advantages of being single and not engaged, not talking about it to anyone, cleaning, reorganizing, work on my resume and portfolio, even applied for jobs and went on job interviews just for the hell of it! Nothing is working. 

I admire your energy!
