So last night my SO and I were in the kitchen when our older neighbor popped around. He admired a necklace on the table and asked “ did SO get that for you?”
I said oh no, that’s only a cheap thing. Then my SO said “ oh don’t worry she’ll be getting something nicer soon enough” ( with a huge smile on his face) our neighbor said “ oh an engagement ring?” My so just kinda laughed and smiled. Then I said “ well I do really want a garden bench too” and my so said “ oh so if I get you a garden bench will be married then so?” I said “ well no but I’d like a bench too”
I do really want a nice garden bench though! LOL I love sitting outside having my coffee, maybe I should have just shut up about the bench though! I just didn’t know what else to say in the moment!!

That sounds promising! ((On both counts))
SO asked me my ring size on Monday, so I can completely understand where you are coming from!!

@arsing89: well thats def a good sign for you! A lot of guys in the UK/Ireland propose with fake rings and go get a real one straight away together, but i can’t imagine my SO doing that. I think he will have the actual ring on the day. Now he has no clue what jewellery i like or my ring size! cos i don’t even know my own ring size! I think its cute that they pick the ring out. But i think i have big enough fingers, so i’ll prob have to wear one on my pinkie!

@Bettyboo1982: SO knows exactly what I want. I’ve been pretty vocal about it 😉 Best of luck to you!

@Bettyboo1982: Wow, sounds like someone is excited and can’t keep his mouth shut about it! How exciting for you! 🙂
I have also been excitedly waiting after my SO stated a couple weeks ago that “we don’t have to wait until next summer” to get married and then proceeded to openly discuss our plans for children with my family. Both of which caught me a little off guard though not entirely surprising. While we’ve obviously discussed marriage and such, he seems to be further along in the planning of it than I expected he would be!

@Bettyboo1982: Oooh promising! 🙂 Maybe shut up about the bench, you don’t want to draw his focus away from getting you the ring! lol. Maybe you can get engaged first, then get the bench and engrave on it the date you got engaged! Double whammy!

I sure hope it’s a hint because otherwise that would be such a tease!

Boys suck that way don’t they? They seem to LOVE torturing us!

Oh that’s definitely promising! How exciting! I think they do that to get back at us haha.
Yesterday I was over at SO’s house, and I went to grab something out of his drawer, and he freaked out! I think that means the ring is here! 😉

That sounds like a promising hint!
Much better than when SO’s mom mentioned to me 3 years ago (when we were planning on moving in together) that SO “might have something up his sleeve.” He had nothing. So frustrating!

@Bettyboo1982: That definitely sounds promising!
My SO came as my date to my BFF’s wedding this weekend. It was sort of a mini-DW so we were there all weekend and he was obsessively rubbing my left ring finger all freaking weekend! It was pretty hilarious. At dinner I asked my BFF what ring size she wore and it turns out we’re the same size. She handed me her wedding ring and it fit perfectly. I showed SO and he got all teary! It was so funny. At breakfast he asked what kind of honeymoon I want. So… I guess he’s got wedding brain even worse than me now!

@Bettyboo1982: Sounds promising, but don’t get your hopes up. Even if he has the ring, he might sit on it for months.
Like I always say, if you have open communication and have discussed marriage and timelines (like all couples should), then you have nothing to worry about.
I’ve seen bees on here read waaaay too much into hints and end up disappointed, though, so try to just be happy the way your relationship is (yeah it’s hard), and it’ll happen when it happens.. hopefully soon 🙂

I have misread hints last year to the point I told him in nov 2012 to shUt it up! He’s a slow mover so in my head I’m thinking the end of the year anyway! He is very wary of his money lately. I’m still laughing about my reaction, mouthing on about a bench! His eyes were on me, my neighbours and my So’s friend I just had to say something non engagement related! Ill be obsessed now for a week then forget about it! They are sometimes annoying with their hints! Or what we take as being hints! Maybe I’ll get a diamond encrusted garden bench!
