  • Wedding: December 2016

I wasn’t necessarily nervous…just anxious. We had decided on a December wedding of this year and I just kept waiting. And waiting. And waiting. He finally proposed on July the ninth (my brother’s birthday) and it was perfect. Just remember all of the amazing things about him. Try to occupy your time. I told myself that I wouldn’t get irritated until June rolled around. But by that point, I was rehearsing for a show and didn’t really think about what day it was. ๐Ÿ™‚

I think my proposal is coming up shortly and I feel nervous/anxious too! It’s such a weird feeling to be super excited yet nervous as the same time. I think I am quite nervous for all the questions that will inevitably come after the proposal… have you set a date yet, where you getting married, when will you be having children etc etc etc.

I’m in a similar position but I’m excited for me ๐Ÿค— But nervous for him as he isn’t a very expressive type of person so I don’t think anything public would would be his thing or even him having to utter or describe his feelings would make him jumpy.

I just got engaged September 23 of this year and we decided the proposal would happen while vacationing in California. We picked out rings together and everything-there wasn’t much “surprise” factor. But yes, I was even afraid that he would change his mind and want to get engaged later or that something would prevent us from getting engaged. I think my mind just thought of a million things that could go wrong! I think it’s totally normal. I was also in the camp of “waiting” for a long time. We were in the ring shopping/waiting stage for more than a year so I think when it gets clsoer it’s normal to get nervous. Early congrats!! smile

I think it is notmal to be nervous even if you are certain it is comjng. I am also in the waiting eventhough we have even picked a date for the wedding and I am certain he wont change his mind or anything. But I think it is the same as when I was a kid and eaiting for my birthday and was anxious and excited and felt all kinds of mixed things. I just hope to remember to say yes when the time comes lol!

Has he ever given you his word, and then went back on a promise? When I get antsy or discouraged about waiting, or fearful he won’t follow his timeline, i just think about how much my SO loves me and shows me every single day, and think about how he has never broken a promise to me. it is so helpful ๐Ÿ™‚ sending positive vibes your way, Bee. It’s right around the corner!!!! *hugs*

I totally feel your pain! Actually, when I start thinking about the “what-ifs” is when I start feeling the worst about everything. Like, what if he doesn’t propose by when he said he will? How will I act? That kind of stuff. I try to remember that he has never given me a reason not to believe him. Very frustrating, waiting is sooooo hard!!!

I’m in a LDR and every time a romantic mood got going I would get really nervous! When he proposed to me I actually freaked out, but not in a good way. My mind instantly went to everything that could go wrong. After a week or 2 I felt way better. But I was an anxious mess for a bit!
