You know you’re a lady in waiting when…All of your friends know you are the person whose ‘waiting’ to be married. LOL

You have a section saved on your computer “JUST FOR YOUR WEDDING” LOL

You have already chosen your ring, wedding dress, colors, and venues and you aren’t engaged yet. LOL

All you need now is the groom to “POP THE QUESTION” LOL

You are reading at least half of these post going- WOW, I do that too!!! LOL

I’m guilty of many, many of these things. Especially the wedding folder thing! I do NOT let bf use my computer! When I rarely let him use my computer I block all my bookmarks from being seen by him and delete my history. I’m afraid he would think I was crazy if he knew about all of this stuff lol.

Ohhhh I love this! So I’m really not a loser! LOL

I totally have a wedding folder, budgets, guest lists, venue ideas, budget ideas, etc. And I also have TONS of wedding website bookmarked in my favorites. I am not as creative as some of you though…my bookmarks/folder is called “wedding stuff” haha!

Anywho, my contribution to this lovely LIW support group is the following:

You know you’re a lady in waiting when…

you practice your reaction in the mirror for when he proposes (sad but true)

you practice walking down the aisle in your living room

you listen to songs on you tube to get ideas of what you and your bridal party will walk to

you get the cards of local artists/bands…just in case

you go on a date with your SO to a nice restaurant and later ask the manager if “they do weddings.”

I could go on for days…but I’ll stop. The “loser” feeling is beginning to resurface. Lol!

@Wonderwoman217: May I also get a glass of that haterade?

You know you’re a lady in waiting when…

You want to punch yourself in the face daily because your STILL.AN.EFFING.GIRLFRIEND

You want to punch your so for calling you his Giiiirlfriiiend *disgust

You feel like your bashing your head against a wall that will NEVER EVER COME DOWN!

just the mention of a purposal or wedding in a song can reduce you to tears.

@MsBrooklynA:  I HATE the term girlfriend from him. Next time I hear it I may *forget* to include his laundry in with mine, or *forget* to make a large enough portion of dinner for him to eat as well. 

You know you’re a lady in waiting when…  his brother texts you a picture of obscenely large joke (plastic) engagement ring he sees at the store, with the caption “I found a ring for you.”  Real nice. 

You know you’re a lady in waiting when… you meet old friends of SO’s at a mutual friend’s wedding and when the guys leave the table, one of the wives says, “So why aren’t YOU guys engaged yet?”  …. yeah, I’ll take another beer, please.

I have a secret “W” folder, too!  I call it “Work Files” so he’ll hopefully never be interested in opening it.  Can anyone tell me how to put a password on it, though, lol?  I know how to password one word document, but I want to password the whole folder.
