It seems like the harder I try not to be all obsessive about getting engaged, the more my SO brings it up or drops little hints. That in turn makes me want to obsess and chat about it more! *Ugh* Anwyay, I think my best friend is getting worn down from my constant conversations around trying to decipher his little hints or figure out when he might propose. He’s getting very blatant with it these days. Friday, at dinner he says, (I want a solitaire, he wants something more elaborate) “When people look at your ring they’re going to think it’s plain and small.” Like I care?? I LOVE LOVE LOVE the tiffany setting, round cut solitaire. It’s just classic–simple and elegant, like me. I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl. I want to feel comfortable with my ring.
Anyway, my BFF is getting exhausted with all the wedding talk. So, I wanted to shout out to the Bee for making me feel a little bit more sane. And, if SO knew that the Bee was responsible for me not badgering him to propose, he would thank you too!
Good waiting vibes….

Haha, this post made me smile 🙂
Bee is my sanity pill sometimes, I think if SO knew how many times this place has saved me mentioning engagements and marriage he would be relieved!
Bee is also my little secret, so hush hush! 😉

Just wait until you’re actually planning the wedding… you’ll need Bee ears more than ever because your friends can only stand the “do I get the cream roses, or the ivory roses, I just CANT DECIDE” conversation for so long.

Thanks for sharing… I don’t know how many times I have asked people about hints or signs… I felt like I was going nuts! This is a safe place to share all of our craziness and you will be welcomed with open arms!

Yay! I love the bee too 🙂 It’s allowed me to be obsessive and keep it away from my poor boyfriend, fam and friends.

Oh yes, luckily I have a very patient BFF, but being on here makes me feel less alone in impatientness at my waiting. 🙂

I pretty much lost a friend over the whole obsessing over engagement thing – A lot of other issues obviously but it was certainly part of it – I learnt my lesson though! A) I have better people as friends and B) I have the bee 🙂

Agreed! It’s also nice to have a community where people more or less understand what I’m going through. We’re all at different stages of waiting, but we understand those feelings.

OMG I 10000000% know what you mean!! I finally resolved myself to not bringing it up with him anymore and now it seems like HE brings it up ALLLLLLL the time. Like everyday, multiple times per day. I think all of my talking about it got him super excited and now he won’t stop talking about it!
