I have lurked and posted a few times, but have not formally introduced myself. My SO and I have been together for 9 years (our anniversary is today!), he is 26 and I am 24. We have been talking about getting engaged for about 8 months and have looked at rings a few times. I thought tonight might be the night, but it wasn’t.
We had a great night out and he got me a cute card with a sweet message inside saying he has enjoyed the past 9 years and is really excited for our next year together. He also wrote at the end, “I am really looking forward to our trip to Durango!” It turns out that instead of getting me an anniversary gift this year, he booked a trip to Durango for the two of us during Labor Day break! I am excited for the trip, but of course I have this nagging feeling of “will he propose on the trip?”
He has been unusually giddy lately, but is not dropping any kind of hints, clues or anything slip! He is really good about surprising me and never lets me know things ahead of time. While I appreciate the surprise, it does not help with quelling the anticipation. Ugh, I really am trying to be patient and I have not brought up anything about a ring or engagement for the past 3 months! So, I guess like many others here…..let the waiting begin.
