@SerenityLove:   so essentially, you’re asking that no one comment unless they tell you what you want to hear?   Good luck  😉 

You didn’t reply to my question though – is it not occuring to you at all, that literally 50-odd women, of all sorts of ages, backgrounds, cultures, budgets, etc, are ALL saying the same thing…because… perhaps they’re right?

SerenityLove, you’re not alone. Please check out the “WAITING’ thread. I think you’ll find alot of support there. And people who are in the same boat as you too.

@MOB2:   I agree – check out the waiting board!

Allow yourself to enjoy this time in your relationship, and I bet once you are engaged, your mom and sister will be excited to help you plan. In the meantime, make your inspiration file/pinterest boards- you’ll be surprised how much your plans could change.

This is happening again? 

@pp: stop compareing her to wolfpack, not nice, off base and just wrong.

@op: I stand by what I said in your other post.  

HOWEVER, a lot of your problems would be solved if you put your threads in the waiting section. Those boards are frequented by users who might be able to understand what you are goinh through and be better able to sympathise more than the regular hive

@SerenityLove:  There are other people who are there for you. I’d try connecting on the waiting board, and if you have any friends IRL who are in similar positions (i.e., waiting). The thing people are objecting to is how upset you are at the people in your life who haven’t gotten excited yet–it’s reasonable for them to reserve excitement until you’re engaged, that’s their right, and getting so angry about it or hurt over it doesn’t help any of you and will probably dampen the experience of telling them you ARE engaged (since you posted at some point about perhaps not telling them so they can feel left out and ignored).
