After this weekend I am sooo disappointed in myself because once again I brought up the whole engagement thing and I keep telling myself that I wont and that I just need to mellow out! I am really good about it for a month or two and then I just get upset and impatient… I dont want to keep mentioning it to him because I dont want to push him away and prolong it- we went to look at rings two weekends ago (his idea) so what is my problem? Am I being a complete brat or what? Please help me relax!

First of all, I definitely give you props for being able to go a month without mentioning it! When I was waiting to get engaged, FI was lucky if I could go a day lol. But no, you’re not a brat at all! Girls dream of finding the right guy and getting engaged and starting your life with him, and when you find that perfect guy, it’s so hard to be patient! Especially if he’s taking you ring shopping, that’s taunting a woman! lol Everytime my fiance would take me, I wanted to leave the store with everyone of them! I know it’s tough, but just hang in there, it’s so worth the wait. I was so impatient but in the end, it was so nice to see the surprise he had planned and how much effort he had put into it. It was one of the most amazing moments of my life. I’m sure your man has something special up his sleeves for you too! Good luck and I hope your wait isn’t too long 🙂

mimi – girl, i hear ya. i’m feeling pretty blue myself these days. waiting is totally the worst, but on the bright side, you’re a step closer to a ring! i’m better at giving advice than taking it, but try to focus on just having a good time with your BF. and engagement talk can be constructive/productive so don’t always feel like you’re bugging him. a month is pretty impressive, though!

mimi, it’s totally normal to want to talk about it!!
have you and your bf talked at all about a timeline? Even in generics? I know for me, knowing a general timeline has helped me, mostly because it gives me the peace of mind of knowing that we’re on the same page, and that he’s thinking about it. 🙂
