Welcome to the Bee!!! Buzzzz

Yeah, waiting sucks doesn’t it!  It shouldn’t be, you should just be basking in the joy of finding the man you love.  Yeah, right.  Maybe some are the lucky but the rest of us have a combination of happiness, anxiety, pissed at him and chilling out.  Some seem to sequence in the order but I go through all 4 in a single day.  Hahahaha!  Tell us the story of your relationship so far.  πŸ™‚

Hi ashleykaye! I too am a newbee and have been reading these board without joining for some months. In fact, I’ve never joined an internet forum of any kind before, but I too have found these boards really helpful whilst waiting. I too felt like I was the only one!

I agree!!!!!!! I am a new BEE too! I have been waiting for about a year now. Just found this site a couple days ago! I felt like I was the only one in the world who was stressing and going nuts with this waiting business!


So happy to do this with you guys!!!!

We will keep each other sane!

@ashleykaye:  Welcome!

That’s how I felt before I came here…I didn’t even know there was a word for it. All of my friends either didn’t expect a proposal (were quite young) or badgered their SO into proposing (literally, like 3)…in front of me.

I found these boards in Feb when I started to get the itch. Now I know for a fact he has the ring and I’m elated!

@ashleykaye:  I waited for a year before I decided to google my feelings and keywords to my situation and found the board. The Bees are very helpful!!

@ashleykaye:  Is he in town or still deployed?  I assume in town or the ring wouldn’t be there.  That is SO EXCITING!  I hope it’s on your finger in days, because it’s been harder for me to wait since he ordered my ring than it was before.  Haha!

Hi @ashleykaye:  First & foremost… a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

Sounds like you won’t be waiting very long at all as The Ring has been bought… guessing it’ll happen for you this “Engagement Season”… sometime between now and Valentines.

How exciting !!

@ashleykaye:  Welcome welcome welcome! It’s nice to meet another waiting Bee! Especially a lurker. I too found the community and the inspiration too intoxicating a pollen to ignore! Hope that joining here alleviates your anxieties as it has for many before us.
