The whole waiting thing has been bothering me for a while now- and I’ve been good and keeping it in check (with the help of my fellow waiting bees). Today I had an aweful waiting day, SOs cousin got engaged (they’ve only been dating for less than a year, but their such a wonderful couple I can totally see how it happened). Anyway, even though I’m bummed that its not me (and worried it could prolong my wait to even longer, since he might not want to propose on NYE- like I was thinking he might- now that a family member got engaged so close to it) my SO has made me really happy today. He’s so attentive, caring, and loving, it’s okay that I have to wait a little longer, because he’s worth the wait
How does your SO make waiting worthwhile?

I think I need this thread today, I also have become very impatient this weekend! My SO has been so great while I am in Nursing School, which is mostly the reason I am having to wait for a proposal. He pays for most our bills so I could cut down to part time in school, and is always there for me when I am stressing over classes! SO is so supportive and I know that he 100% believes in me. He makes me smile and laugh everyday, and always makes me feel so loved. So yup, def worth the wait!

I can’t lie that waiting has been a drag. For the most part I let it slip from my mind completely but it creeps into my mind from time to time. I love weddingbee in that I can see how others deal with it, and it gives me a chance to just escape what I’m feeling/thinking.
My SO really is the best and just has a way of bringing a GIANT smile to my face. I could be having a day from hell and in one look or gesture he has me feeling warm and giggling like a school girl. I totally agree though, waiting is alot easier when you know the prize is a fantastic husband!!

@Future_Ms.Bostonceltics: Amen to your last sentence! I’ll admit it, the SO and I argue sporadically but it’s always over the little things and we manage to talk things out soon after. He’s my best friend and my lover and I swear, just looking at him is enough to make me fall in love with him more and more, over and over again, every single day.
Wow… that was sappy!

I’m happy you have such a great guy
I won’t lie, lately the waiting is really hurting me… I know my guy is worth the wait too though. I hope he won’t make me wait forever…
I’m sure the other engagement won’t prolong yours… I hope you get the NYE proposal! how great that would be!

It is great that you are keeping a positive attitude, your guy sounds like a keeper =). I’ve been dating my guy a long time too, and sometimes when people get engaged really quickly I have to remind myself that it doesn’t say mean their relationship is better than mine. Everyone has to work at the right pace for them, and time things right like you mentioned.
My SO has been especially sweet and supportive the past few weeks, even when he’s going through exams. We’ve been making lots of plans for special things to do over break, only 8 days til I see him!

Loving the positivity on this thread! Although I’m not engaged yet and I do often get hung up on the why hasnt he yet and other questions, he makes me extremely happy. Yesterday he cooked a massive special dinner from scratch and just knows how to cheer me up. We all know it won’t be waiting for much longer, so we must all just hang in there 🙂

It’s so great to hear everyone’s reasons for loving and waiting for their SO! They are such great guys and girls!
@nursingstudent0115: I’m happy to hear your SO is so supportive and happy this post could brighten your day
@alwaysamaid: I’m secretly hoping for the NYE proposal still… maybe!
@spaneshal: Wow! A special dinner sounds so nice! Yay for wonderful SOs!

All I can say is hang in there, if you two love each other a much as it sounds it will come when the time is right. I waited 10 years (we met when we were 16) for my engagement ring that I got this pst summer..finally. Things just kept popping up..college..baby..grad school…unemployment. Then to top it iff before we got engaged both of our BFF got engaged to SO’s. The first one I was very happy for (my BF) and the second I heard about his BF’s engagement I burst into tears and could’t stop even though I was so happy for them also..it just wasn’t fair. Both couples have not even been together 2 yrs at that point. We are happy that we didn’t rush into things because we feel that if we’ve got 11 yrs (our wedding is our 11th anniversary!) a lifetime will be no prob!

Thank you for writing this! Engagement keeps coming up (tv, friends, etc) and it is finally getting to me and I don’t want it to! I love my SO. He is sweet and always wants to make sure that I am having a good time. We have spent a lot of time together in the last week or so and it has been fantastic! He makes me crazy happy like I could dance or jump up and down! I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday!
