perhaps my SO really IS right, and I AM horrible at connecting the dots. I had a girlfriend over for dinner last night, and she told me afterwards she figured it out right away…he is so ready to move in and propose, he’s just waiting for the right time.
First hint was a couple weeks ago when he asked me who was all going to be at my mom’s place next weekend. We’re going up there for his birthday and spending the day at the ocean, and I had told him countless times who was going to be there…but he sounded very suspicious and like he was up to somethign when he asked me. When i teased him, he acted all cute and like he was hiding something. Giving me that sly grin of his 😉
From the beginning of our relationship, we’ve had a very regimented scheduled relationship lol. he would sleep over saturday nights and that was it. He told me at the beginning that eventually he’d start to sleep over more and that would mean he was getting ready to take the next step, move in etc…but I had also told him he coulndn’t move in until he proposes. So last month he randomly decided to start sleeping over friday nights, and we had two nights a week. Then last week he out of the blue said “i’m going to leave my PTs and a few other things here so I can sleep over wednesday nights too”. Plus he’s left a ton of other stuff over here, and keeps leaving more and more. And then, last weekend I somehow brought up him moving in, and asked about a timeline (dont recall the exact conversation) and teasingly reminded him his lease was up at the end of november, and would he be moving in…and his response was “well, I don’t want to pay $895 for rent anymore!!”. He’s also said that moving in will be a long process for him as he doesn’t want to rent a u-haul as he has a truck already, so it will take him a couple months to move everything (he’s STUBBORN lol).
His sister has been texting him saying “my little bro is getting married”, teasing him, and he forwarded it to me. why else would he forward that to me? lol And we’re taking a family vacation to Cali in the fall to meet his parents and sister, and take the kiddos to disneyland.
Maybe it all seems like a bunch of mumbo jumbo to you all, but to me…he’s acting different. he’s not like normal guys, and he told me from the beginning that to him the engagement is the commitment, and once he proposes…that’s IT. So engagement to him is a big step, and so many signs are pointing in the right direction. I’m not expecting a certain time for him to propose, but I am trying to just lay low and not expect anything. I know it will happen sometime soon though, and soon to me is most likely by the end of november 🙂
feels so silly to type this all out, i feel like i look like a giddy little school girl.
