*Disclaimer* I say the following as tongue in cheek and playful as is possible over the internet, and I think I speak for most of the waiting ladies when I say:

(Sighs deeply, with hand in front of your face) “Don’t talk to me right now, and get away from me” Tongue out

@nikkiinmass: True, but the reason people feel silly after getting the ring is because they’re done waiting and they no longer have to worry about whether it will happen.  For some of us…there’s the question of what if it doesn’t happen?  I certainly don’t have ANY indication that he’s even thinking about it.  I feel like summer will come and go, with nothing.

In all seriousness, though, I’m sure I’ll agree with you when I finally get to cross myself off the list. Smile

Ah – after the proposal I felt so bad for all the “waiting” pain I put him through beforehand.  It’s really not that bad ladies… hang in there!!!!!  Of course now he jokes about it, but I didn’t find it funny at the time… lol

I think that every woman that has to wait will feel a little differently about their waiting period when it is over. Personally I look back on my waiting and I do not giggle at all. My hostility towards having to wait may be because there was a reason why I had to wait (Someone NEEDED to have their “special time” being engaged and no one was permitted to “steal her thunder”. Even though it is a little crazy, my Fiance waited so they can have their special time.)

I think it is awesome that you can look back and laugh, I hope I can too someday.

No, I still think my “actually waiting” period of my waiting BLEW. But then again I am still technically waiting since he hasn’t done the real proposal with the ring.

For a long time I thought he was just not ready or not sure about me and that was the worst feeling ever, since he was evasive when I asked him questions. The reason for the wait was his parents not approving for no good reason, and he didn’t want me to think they hated me since we are living with them. He didn’t know I was so upset about waiting. It was horrible, and is still very painful to think back on. I was so relieved when he finally told me the reason. He has had the proposal planned for about 2 years!

We’re waiting to tell most people until after the real proposal this summer (I did a post about this a while back).

Thankfully we’re moving before then. We only lived with his parents to save money, and because they practically begged him and he refused to stay there unless I could live there too, and now we have $30,000+ saved. It’s time to get outta there!

I’m sure it will be better after the ordeal with the parental units is over and we move.

For whatever reason, I skimmed over that, subconsciously rearranged some stuff and put together the phrase, “cross your legs…”  O.o  LMAO!

@helenberrycrunch: Hahahahahah! πŸ™‚

I don’t know, I think I’m more panicked by the marriage than I am the engagement. The engagement is fun and surprising and sweet. The marriage, while it can be all those things, can also be EXPENSIVE. I personally would be happy going to a court house then jumping on a plane to start my honeymoon. But my guy has always wanted the big wedding like all his friends have had. Everytime the words pop out his mouth bills and debt flash before my eyes and I get nervous. πŸ™‚ So, part of me is enjoying the waiting and I think I’ll enjoy the engagement. I think the wedding will be where my true primal panic will kick in. πŸ™‚
