When I was waiting, it helped to think about how the waiting part was comparatively much, much shorter than the wonderful years we will spend together as husband and wife. Also, the time spent waiting is still exciting, as you know there is a milestone on the horizon. And each day leading up to that is just as special as you continue building your lives together 🙂

@Clairedelune:  Sorry about the delay, ma. But “all things will happen in their time.”

“When it happens it will be wonderful.”

Keep yourself busy, make plans for the future, even looking at wedding stuff online 🙂 i also liked to look at properties online, as we will be living together before we get married. keep yourself busy is the main piece of advice 🙂

@Clairedelune:  Try and look at the positives. This will mean that he can fully concentrate on you because he’ll be done school (and you won’t have to plan the wedding while he is busy in grad school)… you might get a more expensive ring (don’t know if that’s your taste or a priority, but it sure is for me lol)… you’ll have less financial strain for the wedding, assuming that he gets a job after, etc.

Two years really isn’t *that* long. Just keep yourself occupied with other things… get in the best shape of your life… start slowly putting together ideas for your wedding, etc.

Try not to focus too much on “the future” or what will be happening “x number of years from now.” You’ll rob yourself of all the wonderful things happening, in your relationship (and outside of it) RIGHT NOW.

Enjoy your relationship as it is and don’t dwell too much on the engagement factor. It will happen when it happens and there’s not much you can do about it in the meantime, so live in the present and have fun!
