Hello fellow waiting bee! It always makes me feel better to know that I’ll never get this time in my life back, the time when we’re still just boyfriend/girlfriend. That helps me to wait.

 These are great, guys!

I don’t have a quote, but similar to a PP above – Sometimes i like to remind myself that we will never have this time in our lives again. The anticipation and excitement. The “what-ifs” and the butterflies thinking about the future. We will have the rest of our lives to be an old married couple :p

doesnt always help LOL but sometimes

Thanks for such a positive thread 🙂 I can be impatient and occasionally even insecure while Waiting, but my SO is definitely worth the wait. I try to remind myself that what is a ‘Waiting’ stage for me is actually a ‘Planning’ stage for him 🙂

I have trouble with this too, but I’ve seen in proposals that a lot of girls wish they would’ve been less stressed about waiting and just enjoyed being bf/gf (similar to what a previous poster said). I try to focus on that, and also on the fact that we’ve been together for 10 years and we still have a blast together every day. It helps me remember that I would much rather be with him and unmarried than be married to anyone else in the world. I know we will be married someday and just I need to let him take his time. Like you (and Winnie!) said: you’re lucky to have someone worth waiting for. Enjoy every day with him because you guys are awesome together…married or not!

Well, aside from my partner and i finally being on the same page about commitment, what worked for me was finding something more important than a wedding. Engagement and weddings are a very very brief time in your life on the bigger picture. I feel like I’ve said it a thousand times and feel weird saying it again but it’s been so true for me!

It helped tremendously finding something that would interest me after a wedding as much as before. All the typical advice, pick up a new hobby, hang out with friends more, go to the gym, pick up more hours at work, none of that worked. When I decided to go into a new career field though, that changed a LOT. That combined with my partner and I being on the same page finally and both ready fixed it. Now I’m so busy with working towards this new goal I truly don’t have time to wonder about wedding details endlessly. (Actually starting to dread having to plan and pay for things for real instead of just dreaming, lol)

Do I still think about it? Yeah I do. Mainly because I covet the perception of a couple’s status once they get engaged and then married. People take you and your relationship more serious, give you a new level of respect and I wish I had that, so I am impatient for that aspect. It’s more of a passing thought now and then instead of a worry though.
