Its like when you read my posts they vary from extremely happy to extremely sad a little bipolar are my posts. lol o well that’s what its like to be a lady in waiting. The bf and I have a great chat, and he gave me a time frame. I said it would help me calm down and not worry. He didnt have a problem telling me either–he said by the end of this year!! Yayy that only a few months–I’m so excited!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think it maybe the first week in december since we are takin a little vacay, but i dont want to start a krazy countdown. AHAHA

time frames rock kinda. my FI and i set a date long before we even did anything. then my mom gave us a 1 year wait period, so our deadline was 9-10-10 and every day i watched the calander religiously and it. drove. me. crazy. im not even kidding, every date, movie, dinner, even microwave pizza was a proposal in the making… i was sooo emotional because (i kid you not) i had already bought my dress, made a bunch of stuff and even booked a photog before he proposed and i felt stupid every day because i didnt have a ring. he said he was teaching me patience but really it depressed me. a lot. but trust me it is well worth the wait and anticipation to finally get a little bling on your finger and it puts a lot more pep in your step

That’s great! I swear time frames are the best. It puts everything in perspective and make you feel like you’re not going absolutely crazy.Its great to have something to look forward to.
But please avoid countdowns. It distracts from the present and puts pressure on when its going to happen. Just enjoy these last few non engaged moments and bask in the excitement of its happening soon.

I loooooovve timeframes. It puts some sanity back into the whole process and makes you feel like you’re not totally in the dark. My guy certainly wants to keep the whole thing a surprise, but knowing it will happen and that he’s planning for it is awesome.

@yaneres: I agree. I want to be surprised, and my b/f wants to surprise me as well. But I also like knowing that it will happen within a certain period of time… Rather than waiting and wondering for years…

Yup I have been one happy waiting bee since I got a definitive time line.
I’m actually getting a little sad about not being single anymore… and then I think NOT really quickly.

Lets hope he doesn’t make you wait too much longer! Congrats! It takes a lot of stress and worry off when you have light at the end of the tunnel.
