Bees, I am freaking. out.
I’m like 99% sure that is is happening this Wednesday…as in TWO FREAKING DAYS FROM NOW.
I feel happy, scared, and mostly like I’m going to vomit.
I can’t even think straight anymore, I HATE attention. I don’t even want to go to my own college graduation because the thought of all my family memebers eyes on me as well as teh hundreds of other people makes me want to curl up in the fetal position and cry. lol
I can’t sleep, I can’t eat, How do I act normal?! I wish I could just fastfoward to wednesday and get it over with already, my nerves are shot.
What do you do after you get engaged?! I guess I’ll have to call people… but who? In what order? Do people expect a phone call? UGH i hate not knowing what to do or how to act I hate that people are gonna want to ask me a million questions about it. I hate the spotlight.
Help me stay sane bees, I’ll take anything. Funny stories, cute pictures, ring porn… anything.
I am losing my marbles and it’s only Monday…

I wrote a simular post last week. My so told me he would propose before Christmas and it was all I could think about. He just proposed over the weekend! While I was waiting I tried to keep myself busy and I got a manicure. But it was still hard knowing it was coming soon and keeping myself calm. I struggled with eating and sleeping as well. I think that is pretty normal. Then once he proposed I was fine again. Except really excited now!
As for what to do after getting engaged that is completly up to you! If you have any close family or friends you can call them or tell them in person. I think it just depends. As far as the order I would probably let the people who are closet to you know first.
I know this is easier said then done, but once you are engaged just enjoy it. Try not to stress! This is a happy time now! I am not sure if any of my advice helps you at all, I was just letting you know I just went through it. Now after I am engaged I feel much less anxious and much happier.
Good Luck! I can’t wait to hear about your proposal and see the ring pic!!!

@candy08: Thank you so much this advice does help! It’s reassuring to know I’m not alone! 🙂 Congratulations by the way!!
I’m also nervous because SO has no idea I have any idea about it and i’m afraid I might just burst into tears upon seeing him Wednesday just out of sheer nerves and knowing what’s coming. I want to try to remain as “normal” as possible but not sure how!! I would paint my nails but i NEVER, ever, ever have my nails done so I feel like SO might notice something’s up? I gradate on saturday so maybe I’ll say I’m doing my nails to celebrate that…so far that’s been my go to excuse when SO notices my anxiety/ inablity to sleep and eat. I just say oh i’m nervous for graduation haha he seems to believe me so far… just don’t want to make an ass out of myself LOL
Thank you!! I will try to BREATHE!! Deep breaths in and out! I just keep telling myself that lol

We drank a lot of champagne, had a fantastic dinner, and called people together. We called family, close friends, and let everyone else find out in bulk over Facebook.
Don’t worry about bursting into tears. LOL. I think half of the men expect it. I laughed, I cried, I said OMG a lot, and I kept repeating “It’s SO SPARKLY!!”

@Bunny82: Very true point that I think men expect it! That does help, but I just worry that I’ll start crying too soon, like before I even see him and he’ll be like wtf is wrong with you! I have to sit through an hour final discussion and then that’s when he’s doing it…. i’m just gonna be ms ants in the pants until then!! eeeee, thank you for your advice! 🙂
I’m sooooooo nervous!!!! Ugh I feel tingly all over all day with anticipation… it’s almost down to a measly 24 hours…. WTF. this is NOT happening, i’ve never been able to imagine this moment my entire life, i never, ever,ever,ever,ever thought i’d even have a boyfriend let a lone someone who wants to freakin marry me?! I seriously feel like my heart will give up beating because it’s having to work so hard to deal with the anxiety and adrenaline running through my system.
ech hahaha this is just ridiculous! Despite how I sound I am actually excited to but I’m sure I’ll feel that after the hard part is over with… idk who’s more nervous me or SO. If I hadn’t accidentally found out via other means I would have NO idea anything was going on he’s playing so cool the bastard!
