I just wanted to quickly vent... My boyfriend and I were never ones to rush into things and always just took our relationship as is and went with the flow. In fact, I think we were so lackadaisical about things, people started to become concerned that we would never get married and started asking about us about it nonstop. It wasn't that we were unsure about getting married because we always knew we would; it just didn't really matter a lot to us. About 2-3 months ago, we decided that we were ready to take the plunge and starting ring shopping. We found a ring we like, and started the custom process (the ring we liked wasn't for the right shape diamond). The process is done, the ring is completed, has been appraised, and is now covered under our homeowners insurance. Ok, so here is the venting part; I still don't have the ring on my finger. I have no problem waiting, except for the fact that I feel like everyone already thinks we are engaged because he keeps talking about it to everyone. When we were shopping for the ring, I did tell a lot of people that we were shopping and showed people the CAD design, but he has taken it to the point where he has asked a groomsman already, he knows how many people from his side of his family he wants to invite, neighbors are asking us if we have set a date (our block is pretty close knit), and his mom called me his fiance. While I am ecstatic that he is very excited about the whole thing and therefore can't stop talking about it, I am frustrated because my ring finger is still empty! The other problem is that while he is starting to plan for the wedding already, I don't feel right planning for it until I am engaged. I am not mad about the whole thing, and am still excited. I am just impatient and hate that every weekend I walk on eggshells wondering if it is time. I know I should just relax and enjoy the ride, but as a control freak, that is easier said then done. Ok, quick vent over.
