It’s good you can recognize the source of your frustrations and how they are affecting your relationship! It’s only when we identify a problem that we can fix it!

But I know what you mean. I’ve had those days, too. It’s hard on us waiting bees! But we must remember that our guys are with us for a reason, and we’re with them for a reason: because we love them! πŸ™‚

Vacations always help make me cheerful! Drink some margaritas for me. πŸ™‚
Good luck with your waiting, girl!

Ohhh wow that took me a while to figure our what you were saying from your title!  I thought you were wondering if dating for 1 month was too fast to be thinking about engagement!  

I’m going to join you on your fast but I will tell you I will most likely fail.  My SO has the stone for my ring, all he has to do is have it cut and find a setting and get down on that gosh darn knee!  6.5 years in the making, I am crawling out of my skin waiting!  I try to think, once we’re married, it’s done, no more anticipation and excitement and wonder about our relationship so I try to enjoy this time in my life because it won’t happen again.

vacations are the worst for me because I’m too busy anticipating the *question* the whole time!! I stress out planning a vacation, tinking about a vacation, and the worst part is that we’ve gone on a ton of vacations and none of them have resulted in engagement- there was one where he was GOING TO ASK and didn’t because I wouldn’t shut up about it!  Don’t be like me!

@jenk00004: Oh man I’m freaking translucent. I glow in the dark. I am a jellyfish. If you hold me up to the sun, you can see my organs.

Have I used enough analogies to show how pale I am yet?

Good luck!! Some people don’t understand just how hard 1 month can be to go without bringing it up, but I’m sure you’ll do great πŸ™‚

@jenk00004: Good luck and we are here if you need someone to talk to. It’s soooooo hard not to say anything to my SO about it when everyone around me is talking wedding and engagement right now. I think we all feel the same way sometimes, feeling that everyone else’s relationships are better becaue they are engaged already. We jsut have to remember they are not superior nor are we inferior, it’s just their time and not ours yet.

HAve fun on your trip! I think it’s better that you aren’t looking at rings until afterwards so you won’t be trying to find clues or ruin it by anticipating an engagement so much.

@jenk00004: I think I will be joining you in this fast. I feel the same exact way and I feel like I am becoming slightly obsessed! SO says it doesn’t bother him but it bothers me that I am acting this way and feeling so blah about our relationship, which deep down I know is amazing! Waiting is the worst!

OMG Girls!!! I am SOOO glad I read this post…

I’ve been feeling Blah about our relationship this week. Questioning if this is the right one for me even. Am I just being moody? I don’t know. I don’t know!

It’s not like I want to be engaged or married Tomorrow! All this stuff happening around us waiting girls and as much as I hate to compare with others my mind can’t help it. It’s ridiculous. Gah!
