@Monroe87:  Mine has told me that he is still going to propose even though I asked thhat we wait! He thought that this would surprise me but still told me about it! I am so upset! i guess we haven’t looked at rings and stuff is so jumbled, but still 🙁 The element of the surprise is gone. THANKS BABY lol

@Monroe87:  We’re in it together girl. I’m driving myself crazy just waiting and thinking about what the delay could possibly be…

The only thing keeping me sane is posting over and over about it!!

Also, meeting people in the same boat helps to calm the nerves a bit…

Wishing you a speedy engagement!

We’ve looked at rings, he’s asked for my specs and all he keeps telling me is that 2014 will not end without me being his fiance… the most annoy thing ever… UGH! give me something… anything…

But i think he just wants to suprise me… and so does your beau… those are the obvious times to do it!!!

As frustrating as it is, I had a revelation last night. I looked at my SO as he was working away on his computer and I pictured him on our wedding day, and the day we met our first child and the day that child graduated and so on and so forth.

Those thoughts alone, without telling him, what I was thinking, made me relax a little bit. It helped me to realize that I’m going to be spending the rest of my life with this person and raising another human being with this person.

I can’t wait to be engaged and married and start a family, but knowing it’s him that’s going to fulfill that for me, makes it a little easier to wait.

Just keep looking at him and picturing your future together. Imagine his tux or suit, walking towards him down the isle, friends watching you steal newlywed kisses.

It makes waiting a little more wort it. And who’s to say you can fill a secret pinterest board with all your wedding ideas while you wait as well! Tongue Out

 

All the best to us! I know, they’ll come around.

Yeah I understand how you feel. We did a ton of talking about rings, and me showing him one’s I like. Now I am back to feeling like he can’t afford that, we can’t afford a wedding, and we should just go to the courthouse. I hope he’s waiting for the perfect time to suprise all of you girls!!!

@Squirrelz15:  Here’s the thing I also realized, the longer we actually wait, the better it will be when we get it.

All the suffering and anxiety, will be gone when we get it.

After 20 years of wearing that ring, I’m not sure I’ll even care what it looks like.

So long as he’s the one to give it to me.

Thinking like this only helps a TAD BIT while we wait…

@RheaIzar:  we’ve joked about him getting me a dinosaur ring, or something out of a cracke jack box. I honestly wouldn’t care, but I know it’ll be worth the wait. And you’re right, it won’t matter in 20 years.

@RheaIzar:  you are BRILLIANT. I feel so much calmer already about my own wait. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement/anxiety of just wanting it to happen already, but the best part really is spending our lives together, which we are already doing. thanks 🙂
