I feel like I’m going crazy! I want so much to believe that the proposal is coming soon that my brain won’t shut up about it. SO is having a really hard week at work so I haven’t said a wedding word in awhile. I have all this free time since I graduated and my job doesn’t start until July (re-runs of say yes to the dress have not been helping).
We just adopted a puppy and we’re bringing him home 5/17 and I distinctly remember us last year talking about getting a dog right before we got married.
We also always talked about how we both wanted to have jobs before we got married (check that one off the list).
I always said that I wanted to pay off my student loans before getting married, which I can do in 6 months with this job and living with my parents (ugh), but he encouraged he to do it saying that I wouldn’t be living with them long.
At my graduation his dad pulled me aside and said something to the effect of “We will be having another celebration soon.” When I looked at him questioningly he replied with “your engagement”…
But then i think about how he has to get the diamond for my Engagement Ring from my mom. We are using a diamond from my great-great grandma, we both really liked the idea of having some family history in the beginning of our family. And I feel like I would be able to tell if my parents were acting different or funny, but I don’t want to know when/how the proposal is coming so I’m trying NOT to notice.
I love this man to death but he sure is good at testing my patience!

I know it’s tough but the best thing you can do is keep quiet. He doesn’t need to feel like you are pressuring him, and guys like to think that their GFs aren’t even thinking about getting engaged and that they completely suprise them. It will come. I would suggest figuring out something to keep yourself busy other than reruns of wedding shows. Get out a volunteer or maybe take on some temp work until July. Good luck!

You really just need to get your mind off of it. When I found out that he had bought the ring I wanted to scream at him that I KNEW!!! But I know that would ruin the “suprise” & that is what I am most looking forward to.
At first I would bug him daily asking “When, when, when” but I finally realized that if I laid off it was more likely to come. I made myself busy so I wouldn’t think about it. Either going to the gym, coaching a young girls softball team, or some sort of home project that keeps my mind off of it. The only time I really think about it is right before bed, but by than I don’t even want to bring it up.
It’s normal to be impatient about it but the best thing you can do is keep busy & wait for the right time.

Well it’s good that you are getting a puppy, at least that will keep you busy 🙂 As hard as it is, you really have to keep quiet, and you’re probably right in that I’m sure it’s coming soon. Just gotta be patient, thats the best way. Maybe go to the gym or take up other things so you’re not constantly thinking about it.

I am trying so hard to not bring anything up! Its funny you all said to hit the gym, I have been going every day and it really helps clear my head. And next week I have to start studying for my state nursing boards so that and the puppy should keep me pretty busy. I just want it sooooo baaaaddddddddddd. Thank goodness I have somebody to vent to or else I would totally go crazy trying to keep my mouth shut.
