Hi Bee’s –
I’m writing this post because I know that you all understand what this feels like. I am so annoyed that I am on a constant emotional rollercoaster.
Some parts of the day I am SO happy for my life, I live in a beautiful apartment with my SO and our puppy. He is undoubtably the love of my life and treats me like a princess.
Other parts of the day I can’t stand my SO for making me wait so long. I’ll have ZERO interest in doing anything with him because I am so angry. I also kick myself for playing house with him so long.
Then an hour later I want him to hold me before I fall asleep…or he will do something really sweet for me.
ahhhhhh I can’t stand it.

@Meant2Bee: you are not alone. I swing like this, too. Sometimes we will talk about it, and I feel totally better and things seem on track. Then, while he is gone, I get worked up into a giant huff and feel outraged at him.
i really don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t come here and see other people are felling exactly this ways, and that other men do exactly the same thing.

Oh I’m sorry, did I write this and just don’t remember posting it? Sounds exactly like me.

I know what you mean. I felt like I was in purgatory living with him but not being engaged! I think ups and downs are the nature of being in a relationship anyway. Once you’re married and he pisses you off, you’ll be like, “OMG why did I marry this fool!?”

Oh boy, you aren’t just waiting anymore, it’s a medical condition! And while there’s nothing you can do to spur your SO on without looking like a total shrew, you CAN broaden your focus and maybe distrct yourself with some fun and enriching activities to pass the time….Halloween is upon us, costumes are always fun, Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, take a cooking class or plan to host the holiday yourself! Make invitations, plan place settings, make a menu and have the people you love most over for a day of gracious feasting! Puppies are the coolest thing since sliced bread, teach woof-butt some new trick, go for walkies and have a ball with him while he’s little…sigh…I remember when our puppy was little, THAT lasted like, three weeks it seems and now he’s a hulking 120 pound hunk of labrador enthusiasm, which is cute, but also has the potential to break a hip if gone unchecked…my point is, I know it’s hard, but make it easy on yourself, and set things up so you won’t even notice anymore, just be in the moment and HAVE FUN!…and a cupcake maybe, cause those are great!

@Nona99: I love your post! What’s funny is I enrolled in the advanced puppy training classes, taking a cooking class today and religiously go out for cupcakes! My SO suggested that I throw a holiday party…and heck if it helps with the waiting I just may do this.

@Meant2Bee: I love Thanksgiving, I love the time of year and I love cooking! It’s the holiday that sets the tone for the entire season! I go all out with place settings and a centerpiece…last year was a hanging wreath of hickory bows with candles and cranberries…people loved it! Point is, there’s lots of fun to be had outside of getting engaged and married!
