I have to admit that at first, it was great to read the posts here at Weddingbee but now I realize that I have to stop! I am driving myself crazy reading about engagements and waiting and timelines!
It does not help that my boyfriend is really busy at work and does not have a minute to talk me right now. Usually, I always calm myself down when I just talk to him for a few minutes but the silence is killing me right now.
I also know that the time for us to talk about the relationship is when we go to vacation next month. I need to gather my thoughts, be eloquent and to have a clearer idea of what is his timeline and for him to know what is my timeline. And from there agree on a timeline WE BOTH CAN AGREE UPON. The NOT KNOWING is killing me.
Of course we talk about our relationship but we both agreed that the actual “TALK” will be when we are away from our daily routine and relaxed and happy. Goodbye for now wedding bee. I need a break from you.

Good luck! I don’t blame you – if I had found the bee while I was “waiting” I probably would have lost my mind! A forum like this helps a lot of girls, but it can also make a lot of girls just feel worse!
Have fun on vacation though!

I totally understand! I took a break from the bee before I got engaged as well. I just felt like I was getting overwhelmed and frustrated waiting for it to happen and reading all the great ideas on here. Good luck and hope to see you back soon!

I know how you feel–I almost had to take a break myself. There are some things which are really, really helpful to read about, but it is really hard to hear about all of the engagements and knowing when ppl’s bfs have the rings, etc. (and I hate to sound not happy for the people–I am, really). I know that my time will come but it makes me jealous and impatient when I hear about other people getting exactly what I am craving so bad. On the contrary, it has been so nice to have such wonderful people share their feelings on the issues I/we have all been having. I love the network of people here. As hard as it is every time the engagement is not me, I truly am happy for the girls because I know they were just in the same shoes I am in now. It’s just hard not to be jealous 🙂
I hope you come back when the time is right. When you do we will be right here for ya!! 🙂

It can definitely become an obsession! I’ve taken several long breaks from reading the blog over the past year; when you’re not engaged yet and are already salivating over weddings, it can be difficult to be patient and happy in your current situation. The good thing about a Wedding Bee hiatus is that you have all kinds of goodness waiting for you when you return!

Good luck to you. Hope you enjoy vacation, and get the talk you need.

Good luck hon! I also totally get you. When I first got on WB, I was waaaaay too into it… checked it nonstop, it was kinda ridiculous. After a while, that calmed down, but there have been times when I have really had to keep my WB habit in check (limiting myself to only the waiting board, for example). For a few weeks there, I was pretty much doing the list and nothing else. I think it’s healthy to remove yourself from that whole mindset when you feel you should. Come back whenever you need some support!
