- Wedding: December 1969
So, first off, hello to all my fellow waiters out there! It’s not an easy job to hold!
This is my first post ever, but I’ve found solace in others’ posts before, and I’ve seen some great advice given. Do I ever need some of that, now!
So, some backgroud: My boyfriend and I have been dating for over six years (it’s technically over seven, but for the sake of argument, we’ll stick with six). He’s a wedding DJ so we talk about weddings ALL THE TIME. Don’t get me wrong, I love setting up our imaginary wedding together, and we both know we want to get married, but sometimes talking about it so often makes it even harder to wait! Last year we went on our first big vacation together to Disney World, and I thought that was it; we had talked about Disney proposals (and even Disney weddings) and all that, but the vacation came to an end with no surprise. I sheepishly told him I thought that it would have been the right time, and he looked so shocked it took me off guard, too! Now, this year we’re again going to Disney World (we love it there!), and he’s being slightly suspicious, which makes me think that maybe this year is the time. But, I don’t want to burn myself like I did last year with getting all excited for nothing, and then making him feel bad that I thought it would happen.
Gosh I hope any of that made sense! But, here are my signs that I might be reading too much into:
1. I have an Open Heart necklace he gave me when he first told me he loved me, and I went with him to get it cleaned at the jewelry store a little while back. When we were waiting, he took me to the rings and we talked about what I liked, and he even said he saw one he knew I would like right away. He’s never really talked about rings with me before, so, it’s a big thing – maybe.
2. He told me he’s going to combine my birthday and Christmas presents into one big thing (they’re ten days apart, so no big deal for me). He always makes a fuss about keeping my birthday and Christmas gifts separate, so this is suspect to me, too.
3. He’s been SO ADORABLE lately! Cooking dinners for me, doing chores, dancing in our living room, doing things just to make me happy! Not that he’s never done them before, but it seems like he’s going out of his way to make sure I’m happy.
4. Even though we talk about it a lot, the wedding chatter has been amplified, too. He even knows what kind of tux he wants, and showed me just the other day what it looks like. He knows what venues he wants to look into, too.
So, give it to me straight, friends. Am I reading too much into this? Am I just holding onto the fact that because we’re going on another romantic trip that this could be it? I love going with him, but I don’t want to be on edge every day expecting something that just isn’t coming…. yet.
