Ive only been “waiting” for a month or so. I dont know if this board is helping, but every day that goes by I feel worse. I have been lurking maybe I shouldnt be here reading posts…
I just want to call SO up and say WTF are you waiting for? I forgot my headphones this morning so I had 45 minutes with myself on my commute to work. Not a good thing…

i know how you feel– my suggestion is limit how much time you spend on the bee each day or even take some days off. for me it’s fun to see the people who i have been following get engaged –it reminds me that when you least expect it, it could happen for me too. also, i read posts from engaged people who are freaking out with wedding planning because THAT is one thing i don’t have to deal with directly yet!!

@Choosgirl: This board is for all waiters, whether it be a day or years (of waiting, not dating lol. If someone was already waiting for a ring after one day of dating, I’d be a bit frightened.) How old are you, and how long have you and your SO been dating? I’m 34, and my 6 yr anniversary w/ my SO is the end of October.

@stargazer102706: what I meant by maybe I ”shouldnt be here” is that Im not sure if reading the boards is helping me wait. Im 27 and he is 33. 4 years together. we own an apartment together, he helps me raise my child who he is not the father… yup just waiting over here lol…

If it’s making you crazy, I’d definitely recommend limiting how much time you spend here or stepping away altogether. I did so and it was a good choice. I was plenty crazy on my own and reading daily about it was just winding me up even more.

I, in a way have no idea when I will be getting engaged because although I see little insignificant signs all the time, my bf has not really given me a solid timeline or sure signs of a proposal coming soon. I am here sometimes feeling crappy and sometimes feeling happy that I am not alone waiting…
There are SO many different stages of waiting bees here.. it may be today that some of us get engaged and it might be years.. for some of us theres no way we will ever know until it happens because we have sneaky guys, and for some of us we know down to the minute of when it will happen.
No matter what, you are ot alone in your wait and we are a supportive community to learn from and take comfort from when we want go through the emotional rollercoaster of waiting 🙂

@Choosgirl: Aww – not threadjacking, just wanted to say that’s awesome that he’s been there for you and your son. He sounds like a keeper!
I know what you mean about this site not helping sometimes. You know what else doesn’t help me? BlueNile.com or pretty much anything on WeTV, haha!

@Choosgirl: Ahhhh, I gotcha. Yeah, my browsing this site and the knot almost every day definitely doesn’t help my “waiting” either. You know what else doesn’t help? “Bridezillas.” I watch that show and see those crazy, selfish biotches & think to myself “if someone is willing to marry HER, why the hell hasn’t my SO proposed yet?!?”
