I’m new to the boards and am WAITING!!! I’ve been with the Boyfriend or Best Friend for 2.5 years and he’s about to turn 31 and I just turned 28. He has a steady career as a biologist for a pharmaceutical company and I’m working and planning on going back to school to be an ultrasound technologist in November 2011. BF knows I want to get married and we’ve talked about it seriously since this past spring and he’s still deciding if he is ready to settle down as he is happy how things are right now. He has his own house but we do not live together and I won’t live with him until I have a ring. Lately there has been a lot of tension between us since we’ve had a mutual timeline and it’s getting toward the deadline. These boards have been helpful knowing that there are others going through similar things as me! Thanks for all the support!

Welcome! The whole waiting process can be really stressful, it’s truly very helpful to be able to vent and talk about these issues with other women going through the same situation. Glad you’ve decided to join!

Welcome! This waiting board has been a lifesaver for me. I hate whining to my family and friends (and I think they are sick of me talking about stuff), so being able to come here and speak freely about how I am feeling is uber helpful for me emotionally.
I think it’s great that you can communicate with your SO about your desires for getting married, and I really applaud you for sticking firm to not moving in with him until there’s a ring on your finger. I hope that he can come to a happy conclusion about settling down! 🙂

Welcome to the WB!! Before I found this site I thought I was the only one in my situation of waiting and wondering what gives. Knowing that others are going through the same exact problems and worries as me has helped alot. I used to get really down on my self and felt like crying all the time. Now I just get on wedding bee and those feeling go away. Plus I have a greater knowledge of what to expected when I do become engaged. I hope your Boyfriend or Best Friend meets the mutual deadline or at least tells you what he is thinking about your relationship now. Good Luck!!
