Hi everyone, I need some unbiased opinions. Everyday is different and I am thinking I am psyching myself out about the ring. A few weeks ago I went to the mall with my best friend and we went into a jewelry store (that my SO is not fond of dealing with) and I was pretty sure I found my dream ring. I showed it to my SO and at first he was adamant that he did not want to shop in the store, but eventually was willing to just go look because I couldn’t find it anywhere else (from the designer to other jewelry stores) it seemed to be exclusive to this chain jeweler.
So we went to look, and the salesperson was nice and wasnt pressuring us but her manager came over and kept trying to tweak the numbers to make it appealing even after he said there was no way he was buying the ring with me around. So a few days later we were talking about going out to CT to visit his grandparents and he told me he was going shopping with his mom that morning and that he would pick me up after work but wouldnt be around to meet me for lunch. It seemed odd to me because he never goes out with his mom. So i tried to convince myself that he was going to show her a roof rack she had offered to purchase for his car as a birthday present but I just couldnt help feeling like he was going to show her the ring.
**She shops at the jewelry store fairly often and is familiar with the sales people. Also, he always said that the only person he would ever take to buy the ring would be his mom.**
So he wouldn’t share where they had gone or what they did that day but on the ride to CT he brought up my best friend’s ring, asking how big it was, where he Fiance got it, ect ect ect. and the out of (what i felt was nowhere) he told me that we cant get married for a while. And i was so shocked I just nodded and said yea i know we cant afford it. So we are all sitting around the dinner table and he was complaining about his job (which he despises, but in this economy one cannot be picky) and said that as much as he would like to call out of work and spen the day in NYC with his family he had “THINGS” to pay for and his mom could not stop smiling! Later his dad told me I should invest in really good ear plugs cuz i was going to need them and the inuendos just kept coming! So i was pretty sure that he had purchased the ring.
We have been to the mall since and everytime we pass the jewelry store I ask to go in and see it and he keeps saying things like you wont have to visit it too much longer, or that it might be mine someday. But despite all of these things I am afraid to get my hopes up to high because I dont want to be disappointed if he doesnt propose (or proposes with a different ring). Our 2 year anniversary is in a few days and we are planning vacation to williamsburg at the end of June. I am trying to convince myself to just let it go and let it happen.
Please someone tell me am i just psyching myself out and I should just let it go or do the signs add up and he might have actually taken the plunge??
