So, I’ve been engaged before, which probably makes this waiting thing harder. And yes, my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I haven’t been together long, but we’ve been BFF for years. I just want to marry him. Be happy and get on with our fabulous life!
It’s half way long distance. We see each other on weekends and that’s it. And it kills me to leave Sunday night because I know I won’t see him again until at least Friday night! Plus, our parents are old school and we aren’t allowed to spend the night together. So I drive Friday, he drives Sat, I drive Sun. And we flip flop on that.
I guess the reason I started waiting for a ring is because we’ve talked about it a couple thousand times! Have the whole thing basically planned, and now here I am just sitting around hoping he’ll ask tomorrow! (Well, Friday since I won’t see him until Friday)
We have had some seriously fabulous wedding convo’s tho! We talked about rings last night and the night before we talked about where we’d live and how many kids we’ll eventually have. We talked about the camo vests, cowboy hats and boots. And how I want my girls in black dresses and his boys in white tuxs. We’ll see how it goes. For now, I’m just hoping to have a ring on my finger realllllll soon!

Well it sounds like you have got some good conversation going with your boy and it shouldnt be too long. Has he given you any indication of how long he is planning on making you wait??

Well, you’ve only been together a month and a half…that’s not TERRIBLY long, hehe. But it’s good that you’re talking about these things.

Some fabulous conversations! But of course no indication. He didddd right down my ring size… and that I don’t do gold. Lol. That could either indicate soon, or that he doesn’t want to forget when he asks a year from now. Ya never know.
And I know it isn’t terribly long. But when you’re having conversations like THAT every seconds feels like an hour and every day feels like a week! Seriously only half way exaggerating that one.

I guess in my mind, if you’ve already agreed to get married and are discussing wedding details, you’re already engaged. But I can understand wanting a ring to make it feel more official, too.

@casslynntomjay: I hope it happens soon for you too! If the wedding talk gets to the point where it’s making it hard for you to wait for a ring, you can always let hin know while you’re so happy you’ve had good convos about marriage….it’s going to make you get too anxious and maybe request him not to bring it up until he’s asking for real 🙂 I’ve heard some Bee’s do this and it helps move things along, and at the very least helps with anxiety levels during waiting.

That’s how it is in my mind too. When I think of him, it’s my future husband, not just my boyfriend. It’s just that everyone else will be like “Oh you’re getting married, lemme see the ring…” and then get verrrrry confused when I don’t have one!
@Dreamingbee Well, we talked about it tonight. He said that I don’t have to wait forever, but it won’t be very soon. Which is not helpful at all on a time frame basis. I literally have my flowergirl picked. Our wedding song. Our venue. He told me tonight I’ll have the whole thing planned before he asked! Which is true. I’m half way there. I just can’t FINISH planning until I can pick a date.
I’m not trying to say I’m unhappy. Because actually this is the happiest I have ever been in my entire life! But, I am very anxious. I know you guys get it! That’s why I feel so great about telling y’all all of this! And thanks for listening and not judging me! 🙂
