I honestly joined the site hours before my man proposed… Haha. We hadn’t really looked at rings or anything, but we had discussed the fact that we wanted to get married, and we were just waiting on the right time. So I joined around 5:00 on September 16th to vent and oogle and around 10:30 that night, he proposed.

I think I would have joined sooner if I had known about it before. A friend of mine introduced me to it a few days before I joined, but I really could have used the site about a year ago.

You’ll find lots of nice and helpful people here.

Welcome to the Hive : )

Welcome πŸ™‚ It’s a good outlet when you just want to know someone is in the same boat! I joined when I knew we were seriously contemplating the big E. However, I am ridiculously impatient and knew that if I joined any sooner I might turn into a wedding zombie.

Hi and welcome to the HIVE. I joined the minute I stumbled on the site. I knew this was too good to be true. I’ve been talking about getting married and the man God has for me for years and lets just say all my friends have not made it to that point and I sense that they don’t wanna really hear it… as much.

So, instead of keeping it all bottled up inside I visit this website to share my thoughts, feelings, and ideas here. It’s wonderful. You don’t need a ring, a timeline, a set time, or a lemon lime…. HONEY , JUST JOIN AND HAVE FUN!!!!

That’s what I am doing and loving the fact that there are sooo many more women out there like me that just need a place to talk to other familiar married, getting married, will one day be married, just wanna get married women! LOL

So, welcome and board and have loads of fun… I sure am.


Buzz @ ya later,

I didn’t join until I was okay with the idea of getting married. Then, it was ON! πŸ™‚ He says I won’t be waiting past my birthday this year, hope he sticks to it. We’ve been together 2yrs, it’s time for it! πŸ™‚ (we’re 29 and 32)

Welcome (: I joined because I felt like I was constantly talking about weddings with my SO and I think he was getting annoyed haha. We’ve been talking about engagement stuff since we started dating pretty much but I feel like I’ve been waiting since we moved in together. I know that he’s got this whole plan in mind and it could happen anytime this year or early next. I just hope it happens in 2011 because I want a long engagement haha, he knows it, he just doesn’t want to give me ANY hints. I’m a planner and usually love being in control so waiting is really hard πŸ˜‰

Ha I joined within the first few months of our relationship. Needless to say this was all top secret until we officially start talking seriously about spending the rest of our lives together. Almost a year later, I’m still here enjoying it more than ever.

I joined after I was engaged – but ONLY because I hadn’t found it yet! haha. I think it’s the perfect atmosphere for “waiting bees” because you get a lot of support. A lot of us know what you’re feeling even if we weren’t officially waiting on here. I was waiting all by my lonesome and wish I’d found this sooner! My friends didn’t get it. haha. Welcome!

I joined well after I have been waiting but I wish I found it sooner- it would have helped my sanity and gave me different ways to approach the waiting- welcome and I hope you aren’t waiting too long!

i think i’m also ‘waiting to wait’… my bf and i have talked about weddings a bit, but i don’t feel like i’m actually officially waiting yet… how long was everyone together with their bf before they felt it was time to be really “waiting”???

i basically joined for the same reason as the OP, to have an outlet for my wedding brain lol!

I’m new too! I just joined a couple days ago, but I wish I joined a year ago! The waiting has been driving me crazy lately so I was sooo happy to find this site and see that I’m not the only one in my position – and to have an outlet to voice my frustrations!

I think I’ve been officially waiting for about 4-5 months. We went ring shopping in Oct and I’ve been going crazy ever since. But last year around this time I started my unoffical wait or my “waiting to wait” where I had hoped he would just spring it on me. No such luck… but after I brought up the topic a few times and basically told him “hey I’m waiting!” (lol), he was finally ready to get serious and started asking me about rings… so we’ll see when it happens!

Welcome πŸ™‚ I joined a few months ago but lurked for awhile before joining. We have talked about the future and marriage seriously for quite a while and have been getting antsy about it happening(which I guess is my “waiting to wait” time. Just recently though, we actually looked at rings for the first time and he wanted more pics of rings I liked so he could get ideas. I think this place and all the great ladies on here is what keeps me from driving Boyfriend or Best Friend insane with engagement talk all the time. I’m pretty hopeful it will be this year and really actually waiting for it now.

Welcome!! I, like you, had been a lurker for months (year?) before I registered. I joined a couple months after he asked me for ring ideas because I knew I wanted to be on the waiting list before he popped the question! Silly reason, I know. πŸ™‚

I love it here, and I know you will too! Good luck with your wait!
