@amallama:  Hey! I was here waiting for a few months until I got engaged in October. My situation was literally.. I knew it was coming any moment but not sure when or if he had gotten a ring or anything. It was so hard. Months can seem like forever when waiting for that little sparkly!

 

My tips!! :

-I paid a lot of attention to my nails- got them done tried new colours, etc   it was fun and made me feel like I was also doing some planning

-Pintrest definitely helped out alot

-Sapphires SHUT IT UP PACT – it saved my life.. and I truley believe that me not talking about it constantly allowed my Fiance to do it a bit faster because it was on his own terms (so he thought :P)

-Work out.. it takes time to achieve fitness goals, and so I felt like I needed to have that time before getting engeaged to achieve them. This actually helped alot… much of my waiting anxiety and stress came from not liking the wait, not knowing, it completely being out of my control.. but my fitness WAS in my control and I mentally told myself he wouldnt propose until I had achieved something. That helped.

-At least for now, until the new year, focus on the holidays. It might not happen over the holidays so put it out of your mind.. example: it isnt going to happen on the holidays, absolutely not.   After a while you will believe that and you will get through the day-to-day wait a bit easier

-RELAX AND ENJOY- soon you wont ever have a boyfriend again, you will never be dating, you will never be a girlfriend, it will be a whole new stage. So enjoy this while you have it even if the next step seems so much better   you will look back on dating fondly so live it while you can

-dont take this time for granted.. remember that many people dont find who they are looking for or something tragic happens and they do not have their SO, Fiance, of Darling Husband… he is the same man now than he will be as a fiance or a husband.. so cherish the time you have with him. When it really comes down to it, every moment counts.

 

Hope this helps! You can do it!!!

@amallama:  Macintosh really opened my eyes as well.. its not sappy it is true! I actually replied to this post right after reading her update.. so that is where my inspiration came from and it kind of makes me think of my waiting stage.. how many momentsa I ruined being upset about waiting.

Planning can be stressful! Take a wander over to the wedding related boards for 10 seconds and it is clear!

 

Make your nails hot girl, your man will see them and be inspired to add a ring 🙂 !

Good luck! I hope it happens soon!!
