So this is more of a vent…
I employed the “not talking about getting engaged” plan about 2 weeks ago and was doing SUCH a good job! Until…Christmas Eve!!! As I was driving home from family gatherings, I was talking to the boy on the phone and I LOST IT!! I had a total break down and bawled my eyes out while saying something along the lines of “I’m so ******* sick of waiting!” and I’m sure some other stuff that I don’t remember. The boy was very understanding thank God. Please tell me I’m not the only one who lost it over Christmas.

((HUGS)) I didn’t quite lose it on not being engaged, I lost it on not being home.

I lost it on Thanksgiving not being engaged. So I can totally understand. He’s had the ring since August and I thought for SURE that we’d be official by the holidays. It’s frustrating. Thankfully he got the hint and we were for Christmas.
Maybe you’re guy will propose by New years. There’s still hope for that.

I didn’t have a meltdown about becoming engaged but I DEFINITELY had a meltdown about not being able to get married this week like we planned. Eventually I pulled my little self together and started working on a solution but it was touch and go for a while…LOL.

Not over the holidays, but I had a complete meltdown in Oct, and I even broke up with my BF then. He called three days straight and was quite persistant about the two of us getting back together.

Don’t feel bad… I have many meltdowns of varying degrees. 🙂 Especially around family events (his rents call me the FDIL) or when people ask when it will be official… sometimes it can feel emotionally unbearable to know that it is UNofficial. We’re both ready, but money stands in the way. Thankfully, he too is patient and understanding. 🙂 Take a deep breath, the feeling shall pass, but don’t be surprized if it rears its ugly head again!
