Welcome to the hive!

I am not a waiting lady so I don’t have much advice there but I just wanted to say welcome.

Welcome – waiting was always just a matter of keeping occupied to get by, but lately I have been lapsing as I think I have reached the stage of losing interest/tired of waiting.

Unless it’s just my time of the month – haha!

@Wonderful: Ahh, welcome to the Hive!!  I joined for the same reasons you did, to post every worry and anxiety over rings, dresses, venues, etc.  Like you, I don’t have too many close female friends to talk to this stuff about, so it helps to be on here, surrounded by people who are as obsessed as I am!!

Waiting is definitely not fun lol, but the days go by quicker if you try not to dwell on it (easier said than done, I know).  I occupy my time by lurking the boards, commenting, voting on polls and then trolling the galleries for ring and dress pics haha.  It bides the time, I have to say!

Hopefully your wait will be shorter than expected.  Keep us updated!

Hey, Wonderful!  Welcome to the Bee!  

I just joined the hive for the same reason you did!  Waiting is quite tough.

It sounds like you’re guy’s serious about engagement and trying to make it happen.  In the meantime, doing things that make you happy’s the best medicine.  Hanging with friends, doing things that make you feel spoiled.  And doing things w/ur bf that bring out the best in both of you.  It can do a lot to put your mind at ease.

I talked to friends about it, but I wouldn’t really advise that. It was a lot more “finally!” than suprised “oh my god how awesome’s.” The best thing you can do is focus on your relationship as a whole (NOT on engagement and how you’re not engaged yet) and make things as good as they can be. Once you’re engaged, things change and it really is a bit stressful and can be overwhelming. So I’d say, enjoy the calm before the “storm.” Aka the flurry of “let me see the ring!” “when’s the date?” that starts 2 seconds after you change your facebook status.

I’m not waiting anymore, but I was absolutely BATTY whilst I was.

To pass the time… I did my nails… constantly. And, I still do, so there ya go, wasn’t THAT bad of a habit.

Hello and Welcome!  I, like most of the ladies on the waiting boards, joined for the same reasons you did.  I am going absolutely insane thinking about this!  When I first joined, SO was still paying off the ring.  Now that’s done and I think all I/we are waiting for is for the ring to come in!  I don’t know if being that close makes it harder or easier though!

Like kimbean, I do my nails a lot too!  And I have started watching a few new TV series to try to take my mind off of the pending events too. It’s not easy waiting.  I have found that some days aren’t that bad and some days I just want to scream because I can’t take it anymore.
