I like being engaged way more than dating. I like the security. I like being able to express how I feel without being scared that he's going to be scared away. I like how he shows me he loves me. I like that we both like showing and receiving love. I like that we can be so open.
Now, of course, there are restraints. We don't kiss, we don't even talk about sex. We had a very brief (and probably amusing to anyone listening in) conversation about how we don't want to talk about it yet because it'd be unhelpful - whilst trying to skirt around the issue. It was a good conversation, and I felt very good having had it, and knowing that we're both on the same page.
But in what we can do, and actually do... it's very lovely. He is an amazing fiancé. I really couldn't ask for anything more.
...cept maybe an amazing husband. But we're working on that one ;)
