@tiff-tiff-tiff:  Lol, I know that one.




You know when you are a waiting bee when you try not to look at the numerous jewellery displays in the shopping street when out with SO; afterall, after a recent chat about how it will not be right now, you don’t want to look like you are thinking about it all the time :/

You know you are a waiting Bee when you drive by a bridal shop and intentionally don’t look, only to STARE at it longingly in the rear view mirror!

Oh I’ll play!


You know you are a waiting bee when you keeping trying to convince your SO to look at ring and dress porn with you!!  

And when you order a ‘bee’ wish bracelet and start making engagement chicken because you are hoping this weird stuff works!!

@BrandNewBride:  Exactly! My SO and I were going out for dinner and drove by a bridal shop with a big display window. I know he saw it, but I tried to pretend like I didn’t. 😛

You know you’re a waiting bee when your bedtime ritual includes fantasizing about how he will propose. I have a few different scenarios in my head lol. Private dinner, sporting event, afternoon hike… Oh boy.

When you overanalyze everything he says that is related to engagement and weddings.

When, if you mention your SO worked overtime or got a bonus, your mom asks if that means he’s buying the ring.

@lovelee1:  when your bedtime ritual includes fantasizing about how he will propose

I do this too!!

Also: when you start noticing EVERY woman who is wearing an engagement ring.

Seriously though, I am myopic and I’ll put my glasses on just to (hopefully subtly) stare at women’s rings with a mixture of envy, admiration and wonder. Even if they aren’t particularly nice rings. 

And: when you read other Bees’ wedding problems and want them to be YOUR problems!
