I just found this website a few days ago and I was so excited there is a waiting section… I felt so alone! Here’s the story:
I’ve been with my boyfriend for about 2.5 years. From about 6-8 months on he’s been making noises about getting married but I kept putting it off because I really wanted to finish school and start my job (something about wanting to make it on “my own” or something?) before I got married. I graduated in May 2008, started a job in Sept 2008, and this past spring I finally was feeling “ready.” So, I began to hint around a little that I was feeling really stable and might be ready for marriage. I thought he got my hints, but I wasn’t sure.
Until Monday! My best friend im’d me and said: don’t be mad but I have something to tell you (cue my freaking out). “soooooooooo B and I may be in contact about buying you a ring (we are)” haha I love her. Turns out he was mostly set on a ring she thought I wouldn’t like but she wanted to make sure I wouldn’t like it before she steered him away. The problem is, now that I KNOW he is looking I cannot do anything but think about marrying him!! All week long I’ve been looking at dresses and searching wedding sites and it’s only been 4 days and I am so excited I’m going to burst! The hardest part is that I really don’t want to talk to any of my friends about this because the more people I tell, the bigger chance it’ll get back to him that I know and I don’t want him to know that I know of course.
Also, we are going on a really romantic vacation to Mexico at the end of October for my birthday. I’m thinking that is probably when he’ll do it? It would make perfect sense to wait until then. But OMG 2+ more months? I can’t wait! I just want him to do it right. this. MINUTE.
P.S. Since this is my very first-ever post I feel I should explain my name. I have a corgi who the bf and I are totally obsessed with…. 🙂 Photos later if I figure out how to do that.

Enjoy the planning and remember that you love him and when he will do it it will be special – thats what I try and tell myself but I know first hand it is easier said than done!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all of the welcomes!! It is such a surreal feeling to be “waiting”! I mean, before my friend spilled the beans I had a really good idea that he was shopping or thinking about shopping because he has been uncharacteristically strict with money and has asked not-so-subtle questions like “oh i saw x’s ring… how do you like that?” lol. For some reason I was pretty okay with this and was content to just wait around until it happened, vacation or not. I had even given my boss a heads up that I’d probably need some time next year for a wedding (my office is just my boss and me so we talk a lot, this wasn’t like scheduling a meeting and making a big announcement), and I was still cool with waiting.
But once I knew he was actually shopping? Whole different story!! I think somehow it just made it all real like: omg I am ACTUALLY going to get married soon! And I want it NOWWW. 🙂
Also– as per requested I will try to upload a picture of my sweet sweet little pup!!
(Yea okay apparently its too big and I’m too tired to try to figure out how to make it smaller. I’ll do it some day I promise!)

Ha… but it blowsb- despite my recognition of that little fact. GL to you! Waiting at least gives you lotssssss of time to plan your perfect wedding!

Welcome! I’m kind of new around here too. It’s such a cool site. I’m not really “waiting” per se… I know it’s still a couple years away, but I still like this site! I’m the only one of my friends in a serious relationship so it’s been really helpful to me to ask advice of the lovely ladies on here who are also in serious relationships/engaged/married. My friends are just like “Um, leave and come play beer pong,” when I ask for advice lol. So this has been very helpful. Good luck on your waiting! It’ll totally be worth it though! You’ll have to post pictures when you get the ring! I’m very excited for you and welcome! 🙂
