So let’s start off by saying that my boyfriend took me ring shopping and started discussing engagement around Valentine’s Day of this year. We took our time picking out the ring we both loved and ended up with a really pretty ring that we’re both excited about. We still aren’t engaged.
As I’m typing this, I realize that 6-9 months in the grand scheme of things isn’t that long but it has seemed like an eternity this past year, especially when my BF would drop hints about it coming soon. He even took me on a surprise trip that he had hyped up for months before hand. Nothing.
I’m not a very patient person by nature, so it’s been somewhat difficult for me to stay relaxed during this time. I love to plan but don’t necessarily feel ok doing so without and engagement being official.
This pre-engaged/unofficially engaged/we agreed on it so we’re basically engaged doesn’t really work for me haha. In making attempts to distract myself, I’ve been working out and cooking a lot and spending time with friends and family… I even took a break from the bee.
After spending the whole week with my BF’s family for the holiday, I need some love girls. Could you share with me how you’re doing coping with this in between period? How are you ladies keeping calm?
