BRAVO! This is well written, I’m going to have to keep this post handy when I’m at the height of my waiting for engagement fever. Honestly for the past two days I have been on the fence about what to do about my situation. I feel like i’ve been waiting FOREVER and just am discouraged about the whole process. Why couldn’t I just have one of those guys that makes the process of waiting so effortless?! BUT you are right he has been with me through my ups and downs as I have been for him AND we have a toddler together he has never let me down concerning our little one so I’m just going to have to wait. Like they say the best things in life are worth waiting for.

I agree in part except for this-if my bf didn’t keep his timeline promise and he didn’t have a good reason for breaking his promise, then he would not be the man I thought that he was and, therefore, he might not be the one for me. In other words, my bf, as I know him (and I think I know him very well), is the only man for me, but if he could easily break such an important promise to me, then that would tell me something very important about his character and would make me realize that he wasn’t the man I thought he was.

I can totally relate to how you are feeling. I go through phases where I am totally crazy and READY NOW and totally emotional about it. Then when I start to get too wedding obsessed something will happen and I will sit back and realise it isnt about the wedding and marriage part, it is about him and how I am just ready to tell the world that this is the person I am committed to.

Whoa, who popped into my head, organized all my thoughts, and then wrote them more eloquently than I ever could?!  I’m pretty much feeling exactly how you are now, except I’m a little past it because my SO is ready and I’m just waiting for him to put up and shut up, lol.

I feel like I wrote this, seriously, it’s almost creepy! I would like to share this thread I started a while ago that goes kinda along the same lines of really appreciating your man and life together in the present. I’ve had to go back and read it occasionally to remind myself during my “crazy” moments of what I’m waiting for!

Tell me why your guy is amazing! Here’s my (long) story!
