Welcome to the Bee laughs. Laughing  At least you might not have long to wait. Either way waiting can be a frustrating as well as awesome time.

@laughs:  Welcome!

That’s nice to hear how happy you are! I don’t want to put a damper on anything, but 5 months is not a long time… have you at least had the not so fun conversations about finances, kids, religion, the usual stuff?

I know it doesn’t seem like it now, but generally the giddy honeymoon phase doesn’t last forever. I am not saying that you’re not compatible or anything, but I’d be afraid to get engaged so soon. At least consider a long engagement if it happens. No rush, right?

@canarydiamond:   I was thinking this as well. I’ve heard of people getting engaged at 5 months and being happy for years to come. But it’s not the norm. For me the honeymoon period lasted a good year, and even though I knew I wanted to marry my SO within 6 months. I’m happy we waited it out, went through a few hardships together, and saw each other at our best and worst before we decided to make some moves to take the next step.

My Fiance were friends for about 6 months before we dated and he proposed 2 MONTHS into our relationship (eek!). It was quite soon, but yesterday was our 2 year engagement anniversary and we aren’t getting married until my 25th birthday in 2014. I am going a little stir crazy waiting for my wedding day, but I have really learned a lot these past two years. Our relationship has grown and changed and I’m quite glad we have taken our time with the wedding (he JUST graduated school yesterday and I graduate with my bachelor’s this May). Best wishes and I hope you have a very special holiday! Wink
