This is wonderful. And exactly what I needed right now. Thank you for posting! It’s so easy to forget that life isn’t a race when you feel like everyone around you is making steps to move forward, while your relationship is standing still. I am very much working on trying to be happy in the pre-engagement stage, while not letting the bad feelings take over. Again, this is exactly what I needed to read today, thanks a bunch!

this is a great post, even though im engaged the stresses of having the perfect wedding and spending all of that money was so overwhelming that we scrapped all of our plans and now we are doing a cruise wedding. feels like a weight is lifted off our shoulders. we both feel free and not trying to please everyone. anyone thats important will be there and thats all that matters

@MsAloe:  love that analogy. You know who has embraced that concept?? My SO. lol While people around us are engaged after only knowing each other for 9 months, and we’ve been dating for 8 years and 9 months, he hasnt let it phase him one bit!! I know the way we are doing it, is the right way for us. I am happy for anyone around me who has found love the way I have. And just because they’ll get married before me, doesnt make their relationship better or worse than mine!! Thanks for the lovely peptalk!!

@MsAloe:  That was a long read but it bumped me back into reality. It was worth it.

I am now starting to appreciate this stage because our next step is to plan the wedding, honeymoon, and to move in together. That sounds as if it would be a lot of headache. Right now is enjoy-each-other time.
