I think my crazy waiting side came out last night. My SO won’t propose until this summer AT LEAST, but last night the waiting part of me convinced myself for about 0.5 seconds that he seemed like he was up to something.
We went to visit my parents on the way home from Texas last night. The sun was setting, so the sky was gorgeous. It was a perfect fall evening. I asked him if he wanted to go outside to put the dogs in the pen with me. He went back to the bedroom for a second and then followed me. After the dogs were put up, he grabbed my hand and asked if I wanted to take a walk on my parents’ land. They have about 8 acres and everything looks really pretty right now with all of the fall colors. He had been watching a football game and was really tired from driving 8 hours, so I was surprised he wanted to. AND it was getting pretty nippy out. Then all of the sudden I thought “Hey wait ..maybe?…”
Of course it didn’t happen. I knew it wasn’t going to. But now I’m wondering how many times in the next few months I’m going to think “Is this it?!?!”
Anyone else guilty of this?

@pokie45: Not quite but I will share a painful story.
For our 5 year anniversary I had arranged for my SO to find me by looking for the chalk markings i left for him in the park. He was going to meet me in this secluded spot overlooking Bethesda Fountain for a picnic me scheduled. While I am waiting for him a couple comes right to my spot and….start taking their engagement pictures. I wanted to kill myself because I knew it wasnt hapening that day. When he finally finds me I find out he got lost and was pissed off by the time he found me. It completely soured our picnic. He was pissed he got lost and i was pissed cause i knew we were no where near being ready to become engaged. Romantic Picnic in the park…FAIL!

@pokie45: Do what I do. ALWAYS assume it won’t and don’t deviate from that assumption!

@subtlebee: great advice…I will follow this from now on, especially after I almost ruined my vacation in Hawaii for myself by expecting it at every turn.
