I was just sitting here at my desk and everything was fine, and then I started thinking about how difficult his family is and how difficult he can be sometimes and the idea of ‘forever’…and now I’m totally second guessing everything now. What the hell happened?

haha, I totally understand. The irony is that what you’re feeling now could be part of the reason you are a “waiting bee”, or at least this was the case for me. Finally hitting that feeling helped me cut my FI some slack during the end bit of waiting.

Oh I completely relate! It’s such a big huge giant deal promising your life to someone, and I think it would be pretty crazy to not be at least a bit nervous. There’s a site called emotionally engaged that I think deals with this stuff (I’ve seen people on here refer others there) and I know that apracticalwedding.com has some great posts on more of the emotions and deeper issues of engagement and marriage that I have found really helpful 🙂

Oh, I have had a couple of those “OMG WTH?!” moments in the past month or so… I think a lot of us women (myself included) get so wrapped up in the romantical idea of the pretty dress, being with the dude you love forever, etc. that sometimes we forget that marriage is a BIG effing deal and it’s serious! I have had to remind myself of the bigger commitment here whenever I find myself sniffling over the fact that I don’t have a ring yet, lol
