I’m going to miss having a BOYFRIEND! Sounds dorky and frivolous, but he’s been my boyfriend for 9 great years and it’ll be weird to call him anything else.
I already do the financial juggle, but instead of wedding vs fun thing, it’s “pay ballooning law school loan” vs everything.

I’ll miss my single girl bed linens! I have a really feminine duvet cover that I love. When we move in together, I’ll find a set that is more “us” and not just “me.”
I mean, I really look forward to a shared bedroom, but I’ve been making my room my own since I moved out of my college dorm and bought my first set of furniture. I’ll definitely miss having a space that is a reflection of me and only me.

I really love this thread, im trying to find positives for not being engaged just so I dont rip my hair out
Im not looking forward to listening to people telling me im too young, or that I shouldnt rush (im 23 but I look like im 17 lol) I also am going to feel weird calling him “fiance” i feel like everytime id say it, its like im bragging…hate it
this is more so for when we move in:
i think ill miss having my getaway from him…like being able to be in my room with the tv on and my computer open doing whatever I want without him being there, Im a very introvert person so I like my alone time, and when we move it, I wont get it much unless hes at work

@elle_z: Definitely enjoying the “no rush”. I’m a worrier, so it’s nice whenever I think of a possible problem to have my SO say “We don’t need to solve that now. We have time.”
@Scorpio88: Hello again, fellow Ontario bee! After seeing your proposal pics, I’ve been trying to convince SO and our friends to make our Labour Day camping trip in or near Tobermory this year!
@shaka: When I moved in with SO to his single guy apartment, I brought my single girl sheets. He won’t admit it, but he likes them more than his single guy sheets haha
@nikkidrew90: I’m glad you like this thread! That was my goal with it. The getaway is nice. It takes some time, but it can be easier than you think to figure out alone time when you live together.

i’ll miss the anticipation of the proposal. Sometimes I get frustraited with waiting, and then I remember that EVEN when I’m engaged my SO will love me the same. We have an apartment together, a shared bank account, and we share pretty much everything else. Lots of things will change once we’re married, but the bigger things have already happened and I’m so thankful to have such an amazing and loving man in my life. Its taken me a while to realize that just because I’m not engaged it does not mean my SO isn’t committed to me. We’re just waiting for the right time and he wants to suprise me 🙂 Waiting teaches one to be patient.

@pocketfox: Haha do it! It is so worth it, the weather is absolutely perfect up there, we had one rainy day out of the 8 we were there. The drive up there is not bad at all, we are in Windsor, but we had to pick up the other two who came with us as they live in Toronto. Total was 6-7 hours. If you do go up there, you must visit the Grotto!
