Everything you said I could say!
First of all, Waiting never ends. You go from the anticipation and everything in your mind for your engagement to waiting for everything in your mind about the wedding to happen. Then that happens and soon enough your waiting to see your first baby born. And then 2nd… and then your anxiously waiting to see the first day of school…. Prom, Graduations, then seeing their wedding and grand children.
WAITING NEVER ENDS!
Once a waiting bee does graduate to all the “planning” boards, you will still see responses like, “Relax and chill, it’s just paper.” So those responses aren’t “unique” to waiting boards. And, I do imagine that for some people, that is very important paper, how dare someone say I chill?
But, this is the internet. This is a forum. You will get diverse opinions and reactions. People here are conservative and liberal. Democrat and Republican, independent, etc… Maybe it doesn’t seem helpful but when you post in a public forum, you’re going to get a ton of responses. If a response doesn’t “help” then move on to the next….
I really enjoyed my time on the waiting boards. We were a bit different in that, he had asked my dad, picked out the ring, booked the photographer and church (due to needing 12 months notice) and then he sat around on the ring until 6 weeks later when my parents were in town. Of course I was going crazy, waiting! But I still go crazy, just over different things 😉 Like buying a house… the wedding plans, etc…
I kinda avoided this thread for a while, but I couldn’t help myself anymore 🙂 Just know that those responses aren’t unique to the waiting boards, you’ll get them throughout your time here, in real life, and any other internet forums. Life is exciting right now, and it’s going to fly by! I wish i was able to enjoy that time in our relationship better and “chill” about the whole waiting thing…
