It’s my first post here. I’ve been lurking for a 3 months or so and finally decided to post (and share my story so I could get a better idea of whether I was going crazy or not).
I’ve been with my boyfriend for nearly three years and we have been living together for two years. We’ve had the “so when we are married” or “when we have kids” conversation quite a bit the past six months which is the reason I got the itch and landed on the WeddingBee boards!
Little did I know it would be so addictive.
So here’s the thing – since I landed on the board… I’ve grown addicted to diamonds! And veils. And center pieces. And anything else wedding related…. I’m talking a full on obsession. I find myself secretly looking at diamonds on my iphone while at work (or while I’m walking on the side walk for that matter). And secretly reading proposal stories (and watching videos) when my boyfriend is not looking… and then quickly closing the pages when he walks by. I MIGHT have even missed my stop while on the train because I was so caught up in a fantastic proposal story on the boards here.
I think I stop by Tiffanys once a week these days and I’ve even stopped by a jewelry store (or FIVE) to look at loose diamonds and learn about color, clarity, try them on, admire them, drool, etc.
I justify this all by stating that when the time DOES come I’ll have already decided exactly what I want because of all the “research” I’m doing proactively… yeah right.
My latest move – ordering a 1.5 carat cubic zirconia and a 2.0 carat cubic zirconia to compare what both sizes look like on my finger (as you can tell I’m trying to decide carat weight and stone size right now). I was so worried the boyfriend might open the package that I had the packages shipped to my office. He would think I went nuts if he found out.
Never in a million years did I think I’d be so excited over weddings or engagements… but after hearing all of your stories I cant help myself.
Are any other pre-engagement bees out there suffering the same condition I am?
Once again – nice to meet you all and glad I finally “officially” joined!
