Congratulations!! This is such an exciting time!

You’ll find plenty of people here in the same boat as you, including me! My boyfriend and I picked out a ring, which was finally ordered last Friday. I’m…not quite a wreck, because I know how long it’s taking the ring to come in, and we agreed the proposal will come by my boyfriend’s graduation next month. Thus, I know the 2 week window it will happen in. But still! I’m so excited all the time and constantly want to talk about it!

You should comment to get your name added to The Waiting List here, where you’ll find plenty of bees to commisserate with! Also an option is the Shut It Up Pact, which you can find a thread for on the Waiting board as well.

Welcome to club! We’re so glad to have you and share your excitement!

I’m currently waiting and having a hard time because, like you, I like to know everything that’s going on! I’m not type A, but I have anxiety and it sometimes manifests through being a control freak. 🙂 The waiting boards are a good place to vent, but try not to get too caught up in them since I think they can definitely amplify the anticipation. 

Yoga has helped me learn to let things go and put things out of my mind that aren’t beneficial. Doing some form of cardio also helps as I’m usually too tired or relaxed to worry afterward.

You have definitely found the right place! As you will see from the Waiting List, there are lots of us here. I gave my SO my ring size and a list of rings to pick from (he wants to have the final say) last month, but we both want the proposal to be a surprise, so I’m like a ticking time bomb. It could happen next month or in six months, no clue! And it doesn’t help that we have several trips planned in the meantime. Congrats though! I find the Bee to be a good distraction–that incidentally keeps making think of it more haha!
