- Wedding: July 2013
Okay waiting bees, I definitely just thought for the last hour that he was going to propose.
For the last eight weeks my SO has a work training class on Tuesdays really close to where I work and we’ve been getting lunch together those days. It’s been really really nice. Today is the last class though. A few weeks ago it crossed my mind that it would be possible that he would propose at the end of today’s date, but I didn’t put any real hope behind it because I’m expecting him to propose around Thanksgiving.
This morning I put a note on his car that said “Lunch Date <3” He texted me later and said, “Your note this morning melted my heart. You’re the best and I love you dearly.” He’s usually sweet like that but that’s when my brain started turning and thinking…just maybe… When he came up to the suite to get me he was super super sweet saying things about how lucky he is that he has me and hugging me more than normal.
When we got in his car I squeezed his leg and I felt something in his pocket so I immediately moved my hand and that’s when I thought, “OMG, this is it.” I told him I was glad he liked my note and he said, “It was so perfect and came at the perfect time.” I mean come on! How’s a girl not to think anything! We drove to the restaurant with the radio on and we didn’t talk, which is really strange for us. All through the meal he was acting differently and more quiet than normal, at one point he put his hand on the same pocket. I was ridiculously nervous and was having trouble finishing my food, (though I did a stellar job of not letting on that I was mad excited).
He brought up what we were going to do later at home, even after I brought it up 5 minutes before. I’m thinking, “We’re going to be celebrating our engagement!!” He was acting really excited about what we were going to do later…
We left the restaurant and got back to my work parking lot and sat there and kept excitedly talking about how much we love each other. That’s when it hit me. What I felt in his pocket was his phone. It’s an old flip phone and box-like! Noooo!
Hahaha, I felt/feel so silly! Maybe my excitement was contagious and that’s why he was acting differently? There’s still a chance he has something planned for later on at home, but I’m going to try to not hold my breath. Over the weekend I did hear him leave the apt and go to his car, when he came in he walked suspiciously like he was trying to hide something. AND we were talking yesterday about marriage, he said it was frequently on his mind and that “it’ll happen 🙂 ”
I fully expect him to be proposing in November but this afternoon was a roller coaster! I’m not even upset it didn’t happen, my excitement was overwhelming! I hope I have no clue when he decides to pop it, otherwise I’ll be a mess!
