Have you spoken to your SO about what date you’d like for the wedding? Does he know about all these things that are floating around in your head?

awww… not gonna lie, I totally worry about the December Mayan world end thing too… I told SO this once after we had been out drinking and he said “if the world were to end tomorrow, I’d marry you today!” lol.

You don’t sound dumb and I’ve thought every last thing you have written down numerous times. Not to mention the Mayan calendar thing, I’ve told my SO already that I want a hotel room for that week in central America (I live on a small island on the coast) I didn’t tell him I had hoped during that time if we are not engaged at the least that I am hoping for one of the spontaneous last minute wedding things like getting married in Vegas. I’m even debating on buying the ring I want this month so that can’t be his excuse any more. As much as I LOATHE waiting (and he knows this, every birthday he gives me my present a month ahead of time because neither of us like to wait, for Christmas he usually holds off till about a week before Christmas and gives me my gift), it’s kinda part of the game I think. Part of the fun. It can be at least. Getting all the ideas in your head, sneaking out to try on wedding rings, or even better sneaking out to try on wedding dresses (something I’m dieing to do soon lol)hours spent endlessly drooling over wedding rings and planning details. I’ve even written out the guest list and had to cut quite a bit out of the list. We’re not engaged yet lol.

 

It stinks, especially if you’re like me and patience is not your strongest quality. Maybe look for the fun in it? And I’m with you on the fall wedding. That’s my hopes. Fall wedding sunset, white Christmas lights decorating the guests seats and such, just before sunset walking down the isle with the beautiful water view (on an island remember lol) I’ve got every detail planned, now just waiting on his small detail of when he proposes lol. It’s part of being a woman. Enjoy it 🙂

Take a deep breath. Focus on all of the great things you do have in your life – a relationship, friends, family. Maybe you won’t get married this fall. But you could get married in the fall of 2013. Or spring of 2013. Either way, the most important thing is that you’re with the man you love.

this should be more of a ‘i hate ohio’ thread lol. my fiance once made a joke that we would marry december 31st 2012. to a waiting woman, marriage jokes can turn you red with anger.

so stupid me has had the thought as well, that ill end up dying a ‘single’ woman, eh atleast i wont die a virgin 😡

waiting is the pits, i wouldnt wish it on my worst enemy, it leaves you vulnerable and clueless as to when or if it ever will happen, even with many heart to heart talks with your Mr. under your belt about timelines.

no matter how much cliche advice is given to ‘find a hobby’ nothing can distract you entirely from the thought that youre still waiting, so i feel your pain. hope your wait isnt too long.

i often used to have this hollywood idea that a man will have this light switch turn on in his head and he would give you this magical proposal on his own without any conversations or timelines, after read this reading this board i see thats not always the case.

some women are lucky enough to have that and not be stuck in limbo and then theres US lol the waiting bees. i guess we got the ‘broken ones’ or clueless ones. hopefully your guy has his light switch moment and proposes soon. good luck.

I hope you feel better!

…for the record, guys, that Mayan thing is all hype. i mean, apart from the obvious about people constantly worrying about the end of the world, the Mayans didn’t even think the world was going to end then. it’s just that their long count calendar is ending…which, the Mayans had a LOT of calendars. the long count was mostly to put the rest of the calandars into perspective so that people knew when which ruler made what. here’s a video talking a little about it, if you’re interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjKUqQ2uSzg&list=UUZYTClx2T1of7BRZ86-8fow&index=4&feature=plcp

the waiting…on the other hand, i have no advice for. i’m in the same situation. at least we can find solidarity in that! :c

@laceywings:  yeah i know its all hype, think Y2K. but it still doesnt stop people from thinking in the back of their mind “its possible” theyve predicted many of things that came true, even if it was just a calendar ending it still makes wonder, but then the rational part of me comes back and thinks ‘fat chance’

@jpalm13:  I couldn’t agree more – waiting sucks. At least you’re not alone waiting and there are bees to listen to your rants 🙂
