When I’m having a bad waiting day I make a cup of tea and come on here to commiserate with other waiting bees! It really helps me vent and feel like I’m not alone so I don’t bring it up to my boyfriend. I also put a picture on my desktop reminding me that it will happen when it happens and to just enjoy the simplicity and happiness of being just his girlfriend.


And hooray for knowing that he’ll propose to you by the end of the year!

Things to help with bad waiting days:

-Exercise (I prefer swimming, myself)
-Hanging out with friends
-Lunch date with mom/dad/aunt/whoever in your family likes to eat
-Video games

I’m sure there’s more but those help me on days I get a little too antsy for my own good. Generally I’m so busy with school and sports it’s hard to think of much else, but that’s a good thing. The busier you are, the less you’ll think about waiting, trust me.

Start planning your wedding…and, my mom always said “you’re only a kid thiiis much *holds fingers an inch apart* but you’re an adult forever after.” You will be married your whole life. Your “single” life (in the sense of being unofficially committed, free to go, free to doubt) will be over in just a few months. Enjoy it now, before kids (if that’s the way you’re going) and marriage. Just be excited. There are far, far, far worse things to be waiting on edge for.

  • I throw myself into my studies
  • Spend time with my girlfriends
  • Treat/pamper myself
  • Hang out on the Waiting board

And if all else fails, I turn to what comforts me when postgrad frustrates me, wine or Jack Daniels Honey scotch whiskey

School keeps me pretty busy, but when I have the time I like to do a little pampering (face mask and a mani/pedi) while catching up on a TV show.

Focus on the good parts of being unmarried that you’ll have to give up.  Might as well enjoy it now!  For me these aer thinkings like having my own appartment, not having any complications  regarding merging finances, not having everyone we know hassle us about when we’ll have babies, etc.

Reading stuff that is fun. Going out with friends. Signing up and participating in 8 million activities. I think that you should be able to breathe a huge sigh of relief though, now that you know it’s coming!
