Continuing along in this series, today I want to talk about before you're even engaged! It seems like most girls know if he's going to pop the question soon, and if you were anything like I was, and probably most girls, you're anxious to start dress shopping and to get going on all the fun planning!
So, what can you do now?
Well, I do strongly advice staying away from the dress shops, since it that could be agonizing waiting especially if you find "the dress." I do suggest though spending time really thinking about spending the rest of your life with this man/woman. I know today in our culture we get very excited about the celebration part of weddings and all the fun aspects to it and can easily neglect the actual relationship we are celebrating.
So my simple advice is, be patient, and enjoy your relationship for what it is today. :)
More advice coming soon! :)
