- Wedding: April 2014
Hi everyone. I’ve been a lurker here for a few months, just recently created an account and now this is my first post. So, I wanted to introduce myself, say hi, and express how hard waiting has been for me and how much even just lurking around on this site has helped.
I’m currently dating my dream man. He is soo good to me. I feel incredibly lucky to have found such a wonderful guy that I am crazy about, my family loves, and has such a good head on his shoulders. I guess I’m kind of a weird girl, growing up i never “dreamed” about my wedding. I always dreamed about my dream guy/dream marriage. Never really cared about the wedding part of it. But now that I’ve found my dream guy, I’ve become obsessed with weddings… which led me to this site lol.
Anywho….I’m def in that “waiting” period. Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been talking about marriage. He took me to meet all of his family (out of state) in October. In early November we went and looked at rings at some jewlery stores, so he knew what I liked and didnt like. On Thanksgiving night, he told me that he had already bought a setting for me before we went to visit his family (i had no idea…how sweet…he had showed all of his friends the setting when we were visiting and I had no idea he had even looked at rings at that point) and that he had just bought a diamond earlier that month. I was beyond excited. So, I know he has had the ring since Thanksgiving. He keeps it in the glove box in his car. I want to see it soooo bad, but I don’t want to ruin the surprise of seeing it for the first time when he is proposing. He had me close my eyes almost 2 weeks ago and he slipped the ring on my finger to make sure it fit…it was perfect. It was so hard not to look!
He’s showed the ring to everyone that he works with. He’s showed my siblings. He is so proud of it. He worked hard to win me over, worked hard to save money for the ring, and he is super proud. It’s super cute. He met with my dad a few weeks ago and asked permission. Everyone in my family knows its coming. But it hasn’t happened yet. And its driving me crazy! It’s only been a few weeks, but every day I wake up wondering if today is the day…put on a cute outfit and make sure my hair and makeup looks just right…just in case. Every activity we do, I wonder if its going to be IT. And every night when I go to bed, I’m all mixed up with sad that it STILL hasn’t happened yet, and even more excited for the next day because the next day could be the day….
We won’t be together for the holidays (he is going back to his homestate), so he’s not trying to wait to do it for a holiday proposal……
It’s just so hard knowing that everyone else around me knows and has seen the ring, but I can’t see it yet. Everytime we go somewhere, I know that little ring is sitting in the glovebox and its SOOO close, yet sooo far away. I have the least patience of anyone and this is sooo hard for me. Mad props to all the bees out there who’s guys sat on the ring for months and months. I would go even more crazy than I already have. We would want a relativley short engagement, but i would feel weird offically starting to “plan” without the official engagement. But it’s helped to look at all the waiting posts and see that theres a ton of other people out there in the same boat as me.
No real point of this post, just wanted to say hi, introduce myself, and vent out about how crazy/crazyexcited I’ve been the past few weeks. AND I CANT WAIT TO SEE THE RING.
