SO (of four years) and I are going away on Friday. I know I should just look forward to the trip without any other expectations, but it’s SOOOOOOO difficult!! Right?
The place is meaningful to us, but the only thing that’s keeping my hopes down is that there are two other couples going with us. He’s not the type to put on a show in front of other people. Even though I know this, I keep thinking “maybe he’ll take me on the lake alone and propose and we’ll come back and celebrate with our friends……maybe we’ll go on a hike and he’ll do it then…..maybe he needs the help of his friends to pull it off……maybe he’s asking one couple to go there early and set up…….maybe he’ll do it the morning that we leave and the trip will be the celebration….” The thoughts keep coming and I’m trying to squash them. I really don’t want to be disappointed when I return, but it very well could be a reality.
I don’t know what I’m looking for here! I just needed to ramble a little and get my thoughts out. How do you guys deal with returning from vacations empty handed after getting your hopes up? I have been VERY good about not putting any pressure on him, but if I come back un-engaged, I really think I’ll have to let him know. Aggghhhh! I just want to have a good time this weekend, but it’s impossible not to think about!!
Thanks for listening (reading)!
