Yes, I totally understand where you are coming from! It’s hard not to constantly talk about getting engaged with him. Same deal, he’s my best friend and we talk about everything. So holding my tongue on this particular topic is proving to be difficult. I have wonderful friends, but they get tired of my blabble, even though they never say they do. I can’t help it! I want so very much to spend the rest of my life with this man! It’s exciting, takes my breath away and occupies so many of my thoughts. 

I’m in a place where it is now completely up to him when and how the rest of the proposal goes down. I wouldn’t want to all the details; I want to be surprised. However, waiting for something this huge and wonderful isn’t easy! My family isn’t making things any easier – they are excited too. In fact, they’ve already started spreading the word that my SO is planning to propose. I’ve even got some congratulations too, which is embarrassing. 

For me, right now it feels completely unreal. I love my SO with all my heart, and I’m content with our relationship. I’ve waited 26 years for this to happen, and until it does, it won’t feel real in a sense. I can only imagine how I’ll feel, what he’ll say (I do know he’ll tell a rambling 30 minute story before he asks because that’s what he does when he’s nervous and has something big to ask me), and all the other emotions that will come. 

Until then, I’m left to day-dream and try not to obsess too much!

@DulcetMute:  I’m in the same boat as you, my boyfriend bought my ring a month ago and picked it up two weeks ago and now i am going crazyyy with my thoughts.  it’s really so hard to keep all the wondering and thoughts at bay and all of my friends have a different story and I feel like if i bring it up one more time to them they are going to kill me! haha

I have tried mr bees backup plan which is definitely helping and i recommend it highly, but for me its really hard to not talk to him about it, like you said he is my best friend, my go to for everything! hopefully it will happen for you soon enough so you dont have to wait anymore! it sounds like your so close!!!

I totally agree! My SO is the only person I have been around much for the last few weeks, things have been crazy busy for both of us and we haven’t had much time to spend with friends. I just want to talk about it every day, but i am trying really really hard not to. I know he doesn’t mind so much, and even he has been bringing it up lately. I want to be part of the ring shopping and planning, but then i also want to be surprised. I want to talk about it with him, but then i don’t want to bug him. It’s frustrating! This site has sort of been a salvation for me because now i can vent or talk about it and don’t have to worry about pressuring him at the same time.

I understand all of you bees!

Some of you I have to admit I am jealouse because you kind of have an idea when it could happen. For me I know nothing and I am just holing on to a “feeling” that I have that it will happen soon or for sure this year. I have to say though I do think it would be harder to wait and ponder when that moment will come knowing that he has the ring or if he did give you some general time frame like within the next 2 weeks. Those two weeks would be killing me! hehe

Me and my SO are also the best of friends and I think that is so wonderful for all of you as well<3 its such a great feeling to know you are in love with the man of your dreams. But yes that is the one downfall that we cant talk and babble all day about how excited we are to marry them TO them! Hang in there and I wish you all the best<3

@DulcetMute:  Oh that stage, my friend is getting enaged in August, we all know exactly when, except her. She’s soo bubbly and excited its adorable! I don’t know when I’ll get enaged or even if I will this year but I’m still soo happy to hear her talk about it because she’s my friend. That’s what friends do! 

I also understand you have single friends who would be excited for you but it would be bittersweet. That’s why you have the Hive! 🙂 

We all can gush and “ooh” and “aww” and “squeal” about each other’s situations and its totally wonderful because there’s always someone that knows what your feeling and going through! 

@eeerika22:  <3 Those feelings are often based on a truth that we don’t always understand at the moment. That feeling means you know he loves you!
