Ok, so this may sound so weird…but I’ve only officially joined the hive today…but I’ve been lurking around for quite some while.
And after yesterday I just decided its time to join the hive so that I have other ladies that I can vent to about what is happening in my life.
Ok so here it goes: My Boyfriend or Best Friend told me last Thursday evening that he had to go away for work on Monday (Yesterday)…[I am from South Africa, so apologies if its still Monday where you guys are at ;). Which I thought was a bit weird, because the city he had to go to wasnt the normal gathering place for their work meetings. Anyways, so I didnt make anything of it. Until Saturday evening he started telling me “Monday is the 7th of May, a date you need to remember…” when i asked him why i should remember the date, he just kept saying “You’ll know one day”. So Sunday evening we spoke about getting engaged “one day” and then all of a sudden he asks me if I would be happy with the princess cut solitaire Engagement Ring we looked at 2 weeks ago, and I obviously said yes as it was exactly what I want, and then he goes off again saying how sad it is that the ring would probably be sold already as it was a popular ring in the Shimanky shop.
So once again I left it at that…and then last night (Moday evening) when he got back from the work thing…he kept saying “I am going to marry you”…and being the type of girl I am, to not make him feel like I am pressuring him i just reply with “yes…one day” and he just kept saying “its closer than you think”….and somewhere last night I picked up something he said…we were talking about the pretty ring we looked at 2weeks ago, ironically the shop is near where they had to go for work yesterday, and somewhere during the evening we spoke about getting engaged in the future, and I said “but it’ll probably still be some time as we would still have to get the ring made etc” , and he casually replied “who says I dont have the ring yet…” and then changed the topic.
So to finish this very very long post: I know he bought that ring yesterday, I just know it. During the entire day when he was away “at work” he kept texting me stuff like “Im sooooo happy” and “Im gonna make you my wife” and “If you knew what I know you would be so excited”….so I know he got the ring, BUT the problem is this: its still gonna be a while till he would actually propose, because he wants to ask the blessing of my dad (which I so love and adore, he respects my dad alot) but the trouble is my parents live in another state and he would have to fly up all the way just to ask their blessing, and I know he wont be able to do that pretty soon.
So knowing he bought the ring, but wont ask me until he asked my dad’s blessing is killing me.
I want him to ask my dad’s blessing as I will be the first daughter to get married, I just wish it would happen sooner!!!! We are only flying up to visity my folks again end of July/beginning August =( ARGHHHH
sorry for this very very very long post…i just had to give you guys a good background check!
