Hello ladies! I am a new member but I have been looking at ring porn for several weeks now!! My problem is that I am going CRAAAZY waiting for my proposal!! He is the absolute love of my life. To give you some background, we have known each other since Kindergarten but didn’t fall in love until 8 years AFTER highschool. We have never been happier. Brian and I have been dating 2.5 years now and knew right away we were meant to be.
We went shopping in December and he learned what I liked in a ring and the rest was going to be up for him. He went back after “ring browsing” as he refers to it to pick out the stone and decide on the details. I know he has the ring in possession!!! I have let myself down a couple times now thinking it was going to happen when it didn’t. 🙁
My question: How do I stop driving myself crazy thinking about it all the time?? I WANT IT SOOOO BAD….it’s all I think about…..I need some support (please and thank you)!!!!
P.S. We have even decided on our wedding date!

You should be happy he has the ring, and quit complaining! 😉 I’m only joking of course…but my SO and I browsed rings online 9 months ago, and went physically ring shopping a few weeks ago, and still nothing (at least not to my knowledge…and I’m a good snooper, hehe)!!
You should find a hobby that you looove to do. I know a lot of ladies go to the gym more often, so if you need to get in-shape for the wedding that’s a good idea! You could also pick up a craft of some sort…painting, knitting, etc.
As far as the fact you can still THINK about it while trying to “stay busy”…try to focus more on why you love this man and what you can do to make him happy, instead of focusing on that one day that will make you happy. Making him happier could also help him move the date up a little, too!
Good luck…and remember, it’s better to talk/complain about waiting on here than it is to do it to your man, especially if he already has the ring. He probably is waiting for you to “forget” about it (like that will EVER happen…but pretending never hurts!)…so he can “surprise” you! 🙂

@CrazyHappy: I wish I knew!!! We went ring shopping all the way back in July, which was a huge mistake because I have been going crazy ever since! Hopefully it will come soon for the both of us.

Oooo that’s tough! I think the gym is a brilliant idea. For me, hanging out with (non-engaged) friends always takes my mind off engagement/marriage 🙂
I’m happy for you though; it’s coming soooon!

Thanks for the feedback, ladies!! I actually am starting a work out routine next week because we are doing Tough Mudder in September and I need to whip this bod into shape. I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one driving myself crazy! I will be just fine. I am just thankful and blessed that I am in love with my best friend—the rest will fall into place when the time is right 🙂 Stay tuned….
