I’m so sorry, I know exactly how this feels.  I would find myself excitedly looking at all sorts of wedding websites getting ideas for what I wanted my “wedding” to be like, and then all of a sudden it would hit me that I wasn’t even engaged.

I hate feelings like that πŸ™ I’m sorry.

I had a similar feeling just now. I was reading another thread about affordable wedding dress websites and I started going to the links that other bees were posting to look at the dresses. I was finding ones I really liked or thought I’d like to try those types of styles when the time comes. I was about to flip my computer around and show them to the Boyfriend or Best Friend to ask what he thought, but then I stopped myself because I was thinking “Why would I should him wedding dresses? We’re not even engaged yet!” 

Those feelings happen every now and again to us waiting girls…it sucks. But we’re strong πŸ™‚

I hear ya.  I remember having to feign enthusiasm for people who got engaged before me.  Although now….I’m engaged and get little pangs when people announce their pregnancies and births, haha.  I guess we just always want what’s coming up next.  I guess we should just try to enjoy the stage we’re in and not wish our lives away, but it’s tough when you want something! πŸ™‚

@Juliepants: I’m tryin’ HARD these days to not wish my life away! But you’re right, that is the better way to go out it, no matter how difficult it can be sometimes.

I congratulate you, you’re ready to get married. πŸ™‚ Once my 1% discontent kicked in and began to grow, my whole world turned upside down and I said oh my gosh! I want to marry this person! I’m ready to get married. Maybe it’s time to have some talks with your SO. If you feel that way about him, I’m sure he feels that way about you and maybe it’s just a matter of gently getting the ball rolling.

awww I’m sorry Embarassed

I had a similar experience about a week ago when we walked by a jewelry store and saw a couple looking at rings and talking to the jeweler.

definitely put a damper on that day… l’m trying to avoid jewlery stores, wedding dress shops altogether at this point. they just make me feel bad.

 

hopefully the feeling will pass for you soon and you’ll get back to the happy waiting place Wink

Oooh! I know! I do that occasionally whenever we go past the jewlery store in the mall… there are always a few couples in their looking/trying on rings. He doesn’t notice but I do. 

Its hard to be positive when you feel like its not going to happen when you want it to, or if it will at all.

Just be patient. That will be you some day. Remember that being engaged and picked out a wedding dress should only happen once in your life. I bet that time flies by and those experiences are lost to you for the rest of your life. So just enjoy the downtime now and savor those experiences when they come to you in their own time. πŸ™‚
