I stumbled across this a few weeks ago and I really think it sums up my experience while “waiting.”  I think I jump from stage to stage on a daily basis, but it’s good to know that other ladies are having the same highs and lows!  Plus, it’s pretty entertaining.  I hope this makes you smile!  I’m sure it’ll happen soon enough, and you’ll have a beautiful ring on your finger and a wonderful fiance!

Yes!  Whenever my Fiance and I discuss anything that isn’t school, he says, “Not any time soon.”  Marriage?  Babies? NOT ANYTIME SOON.  But then he’ll bring up that he wants children with me and marraige soonish. . .it gets irritating and I just feel like I shouldn’t want those things since it’s “not any time soon”!

Technically, I’m still waiting, because I have a place-holder ring on my finger and he hasn’t actually proposed yet.  He has things in HIS priority, and I feel like mine aren’t even entertained.  I just feel sometimes it’s better to detach yourself from those situations and focus on the things you need the most.  Pick up a new hobby, adopt a pet, etc.

I joined two years ago! We were actively planning, but then I took a hiatus when we both lost our jobs and moved back in with our parents. I finally came back once things started to get real a few months ago. I believe I would be in a sour mood a lot because of waiting if we hadn’t gone ring shopping together. Going from if to when definitely helped put me in a better mood.

 

@katiebeary:  Ugh. Don’t you hate soon?! My SO would use “soon” all the time. When will we get engaged? Soon. He’s been saying soon for a couple years now. He and I apparently have two very different definitions of soon!

@Mrs. Bear Cheese Pie:  I agree completely.  His “soon” is my “not soon enough” lol.  I try to stay patient, but sometimes it’s hard for me not to just want to completely ignore it like it’s never going to happen so I don’t get disappointed how not soon “soon” really is.

According to the chart that SaraB2602 posted, I am in the The BLAH/UGH Stage. It should happen any day or week now….but every day seems so agonizing. I don’t even bring it up unless he does (even though i just want to yell “wheres my proposal and RING”) LOL. i TRY to keep myself busy with cleaning the whole house, cooking intricate meals, laundry, blogging, reading and working out.
