This may sound crazy, but am I the only one that almost misses the waiting period? It’s not that I don’t love being engaged and that I’m thrilled to be marrying my FI in 86 days, but I kinda miss the anticipation of ‘could this be it’? For instance, next weekend we are going away to a really pretty small town for another wedding. All I can think is that this would be a fantastic place to propose! And I had an awesome proposal on a cruise ship!
We dated for almost 4 years, so I waited a long time and I know how hard the waiting is. And I honestly kinda miss it some days.
My mom always told me that falling in love was much more exciting than being in love. I think I get it…
Anyway, I guess I’m just telling all the waiting bees to enjoy the time with you SO 🙂 There is something special about this time in your lives.

I miss the anticipation/excitement leading to the proposal. I do not miss the waiting and wondering how long it would be before I could call him FI. Lol. Does that make sense?

@smiles4jo: Interesting and I guess I can kind of see what you mean, but after nearly 9 years….I can say that I have had my fair share of waiting as well.

I’m pretty sure most people would rather saw off their arm and eat it than wait again.
But then again, this is coming from someone who
1.) Is not yet engaged
2.) Thinks a good time involves alcohol and Pink Floyd
3.) I accidentally ran over a rabbit this morning and I wanted to cry
You can disregard anything I say.

@Torrid: “I’m pretty sure most people would rather saw off their arm and eat it than wait again.” This made my laugh out loud.

i don’t miss the waiting. i didn’t have a very long wait (about 6 months), but by the time we got engaged we were both more than ready to get the wedding plans started.
i miss the earlier stages of our relationship when we didn’t have to worry about wedding stuff. we just had fun. i mean, we still have fun now, but it’s not the same. we always end up talking about the wedding or our budget or something else that’s stressful.
i’ve never heard anyone say that falling in love is more exciting than being in love, but it makes sense.

I love being married. But I do miss the “discovery” phase when we ran on a chemical high from being around eachother all the time. I still love being around him always, and I would kill for him because I love this man so much, but sometimes I miss the quirky, hypothetical conversations we used to have. We still have them, but I know him so well that I can generally KNOW what he’s going to respond with. While that’s cool knowing I know him better than anyone else, I liked the mystery of finding out what made him tick.
Now I’m listening to him snore, and hiccup at the same time. This man is adorable. 🙂

As #2 on the waiting list, don’t take this personally, but yes. Yes, you are crazy.LOL
But I get you. Sometimes I see people in brand new relationships and I miss that getting to know you, what else is there to him, excitement. 🙂 I remember that time period well.

I definitely do NOT miss the waiting period. For me, at least, it was thankfully short, but I hated having to say “if” instead of “when”, or not bring up marriage at all, or close my browser with all kinds of bookmarked rings whenever he would come by.
I’m one of the weirdos who enjoys more the feeling that this is it, and we’re together. Most of the new relationship feelings that people get is just nervousness to me, and I’m happy to feel safe and comforted when my fiance comes around instead. 🙂
Then again, I don’t like surprises. Ha ha!

i don’t miss the waiting, exactly. although i do miss looking forward to his proposal, wondering how and when he would do it, and i also miss that moment when we got engaged, but otherwise don’t miss waiting.
but i am having a really long engagement so ‘waiting’ to get married now and start our lives together

Yes, I totally do! But, am also so glad we are engaged and excited for the wedding! I think it’s hard not to miss it when you waited for it for so long and it was over in just seconds!
