@hawk1:  I’ve been putting more effort into work…taking initiative, etc. I like my job and appreciate the great feedback I get on a regular basis. I’m not sure of your situation, but finding a job you’re happy with is a healthy focus, if you’re not there yet. Whether that be a career change, department change, goal establishment, classes to improve skills.

ive also made it a point to meet up with friends/family on a regular basis (without SO). I like having my own social life, and then it’s another thing we can talk about. Plus it’s nice to spend time with loved ones. ๐Ÿ™‚ esp my brothers kids (love my cute nieces)!

I got a LOT out of reading Last One Down the Aisle Wins: 10 Keys to a Fabulous Single Life Now and an Even Better Marriage Later (horrible title, but fantastic book!), which is all about taking care of yourself and becoming your best you, regardless of when/if you get a ring.

While I was waiting, I focused on getting out of debt and starting to save, building up my friendships and family relationships, deepening my faith, and taking care of my health.

I’ve been focusing on work… but just recently I decided i’m going to take a class on crocheting at Joann Fabrics. I also joined a bible study, read in my freetime, and go to the gym five days a week.

I’m also in the same boat as you when in comes to a timeline. It hasn’t changed the way I take care of myself. If anything, I’ve added activities/ clubs so that I spend less time thinking about the approaching date. I don’t plan on “walking out” or breaking up with my SO once the deadline hits, but I’ve decided that I will move out. We currently live together and I don’t feel that’s necessary if he continues to drag out a committment.

I was really focused on work and I did a fitness bootcamp. It really made me feel good because I had more energy and was better focused at work, and then my body looked fabulous. SO (now FI) could barely keep his hands off of me!

Im just going to school, working, and living my life. =)

We don’t have a set timeline, he sat me down to see how I felt during the holidays last year.  We set up an account to save for the wedding but I just look at it as another savings account.

I’m just taking it a day at a time.  I travel, I try new things.  I think its important not to focus on it.  I’m having too much fun too focus on it!

I started taking Pilates classes, and I started spending more time with friends. I also stopped asking for my SO’s opinion about my decisions so much… If I like a pair of shoes, I’ll wear them for me, not him.
