thank you… I’ve actually really been struggling with this! it helps to hear these things (even if I did want to throw something at the title) but it’s true. I need to refocus on us, not a wedding we want to happen. It’s not our time yet, he’s getting his masters and I’m a new graduate still trying to get on my feet and figure out what I want to do with myself.

We still have each other, it just gets frustrating at times to not be able to live with him until we’re married (old fashioned family and values, I know!). He’s promised we’ll be engaged soon, and when we went ring shopping together, he told the jeweler he’d be back in less than a year. I just have to be patient! 

Thanks again!

Everything here is very true.  I have friends who are now engaged who say they regret their “bad” waiting days.  We all have them, but it’s worth it.  Just because you don’t have a ring on your finger doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the person you’re with! πŸ™‚

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT.

I’ve tried to make the tone of my waiting posts related to this post. Obviously anxious because I want to marry the man of my dreams πŸ™‚ But also, not pressuring him because I know it’s happening. I have NOTHING to be angry about…I am in love…I am cared for…I have an amazing LIFE as is!!! Granted, I want to call this man my husband right now…but I have solice knowing that i WILL call this man my husband πŸ™‚ For those who know it’s coming…just enjoy your loved one <3 Be the best Bee you can be πŸ˜‰ hahaha….but seriously…Be that amazing girlfriend that you know you are, that he knows you are. For those who aren’t sure if it’s coming…do the same! Enjoy your man. Express what you expect from him and make sure he’s on the same page, and do all the daydreaming you can handle πŸ™‚ Because it WILL happen…I would be lying if I said I didn’t want it when I get home tonight lol but I just can’t imagine how amazingly sweet it’s going to be when it actually does happen. Good thread πŸ™‚ I think we all need to be reminded of the positives and not the negatives. But trust me, if there’s ever a place to vent your frustration and anger at times, it’s the Waiting Board lol!

@alwaysamaid… I agree. Hahaha. My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together nearly 8 years and the waiting is killing me. 

I have been a maid of honour and a bridesmaid twice in the past 2 years, all while watching countless friends and aquaintances get engaged on (what feels like) a weekly basis! Waiting sucks. I’ve embraced the wait long enough!!

Good advice. It’s nice to have the time to plan, enjoy the moment, etc. without a deadline staring you in the face. Ack!

“The better you handle the waiting, the more sure he’ll be in his decision to make you his wife.” <—- THIS! I def needed this reminder. I think I’ve been pretty good thus far, but I am feel myself turn into the crazed-obsessed-nagging-waiting chick. *Sigh*
