- Wedding: October 2013
Hi everyone, i’m new here – first post ever, have been reading all your posts and it’s making me super excited!
My boyfriend and i purchased a ring 3 weeks ago, it’s so beautiful I can’t wait to get it. We have been together nearly 6 years and living together for over 5 and i really didn’t think we were even getting close. We always talk about ‘when we’re married’ etc so i knew he wanted to marry me i just didn’t think it was on the cards anytime soon, until we were sitting on the couch a few weeks and i asked if there was anything he felt like doing that weekend and he said “we can go look at rings if you want?” Of course i got super excited!
Well I found the ring in the first jeweller we went to, i really hadn’t even looked around so didn’t really know what i wanted but as soon as i had it on my finger i knew it was the one. It had to be resized as it was too small and the lady said it would be ready to pick up two days later. I didn’t expect him to wait at all and was totally expecting him to ask me that weekend and it didn’t happen. Of course i got a little disappointed but figured he needed longer to plan something and decided to not mention it at all. The next weekend comes and it was his birthday so i wasn’t really expecting him to ask but i had a really romatic day planned and we went out for a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant and in the back of my mind i was thinking maybe he will ask me as i wont be expecting it.. and it didn’t happen. Again slight disappointment but i figured the weekend isn’t over yet maybe he’ll do it Sunday. and he didn’t. I hadn’t mentioned the ring or getting engaged even once since we bought the ring as i thought it would make it more special for when it happens, but on Sunday i had a slight melt down and was like what are you waiting for! He said he’d tried to plan something for that Satuday of his birthday ‘but the guy was on holidays’.. I didn’t want to ask what guy coz i do want it to be a little bit of a surprise but now it’s killing me!
My best friend lives a couple of hours away and is coming up this weekend so i made some tentative plans with her, and told my boyfriend about it and he said ohh you can’t make plans for saturday evening coz we already have plans in Noosa (a nice town 30 mins away)… So of course here I am googling ‘thing to do in Noosa’ trying to get some clues as to what his plan is anbd who ‘this guy’ is that was on holidays!
I am so excited I can’t wait to be engaged to my amazing boyfriend after all this time, i really want to know the plan but i don’t at the same time coz it might ruin it. So these are my last days of having a boyfriend, i cannot wait to have a fiance!
I’m sorry for such a long rant, it’s just so hard to keep it inside, we haven’t told a single person we have the ring and i don’t want to until it’s on my finger, it’ll make the surprise better, but i feel like i need to tell someone and from what i’ve read all you waiting bees are just the right someone to tell!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
