(First off, my first post!)
I’m incredibly suspicious that my boyfriend will propose soon and it’s driving me insane! He’s had the ring since about June or so, but he’s said before that he wanted to wait until he had a better job before popping the question. But now I think that he may be preparing to propose despite the job.
Around my birthday (in July) he said he had the feeling we would be engaged before the end of the year. Ever since then I’ve been suspicious that he had proposal plans for our anniversary. It’s exactly two weeks from today (October 18th!) and he seems to be even MORE excited for it than I am. He’s also being really secretive about what he’s getting me (he is SO bad at keeping gifts secret from me, so it’s unusual), and he’s trying super hard to get that day off of work in order to spend the whole day together doing whatever it is he has planned. I told him that it would be okay if he couldn’t get the day off, since it’s a Thursday, and we could celebrate that weekend, but he’s really adamant about celebrating EXACTLY on the 18th.
The other day I started bugging him to tell me what he was getting me for our anniversary (he’s nosy and has been doing the same thing to me for the past couple of weeks, so I wanted to give him a taste of his own medicine). We decided to just give each other subtle hints, to keep it a surprise. Among other things I’m giving him a small stuff animal so my hint to him was “It’s something you hug.” His hint to me? “It’s something you wear.” He’s not the type of guy to buy clothes for me without me there, so I highly doubt he’s gotten me a shirt or something. But you CAN wear a ring…
There are some other signs too, so I’m about 90% positive that this will happen. But now that I’m suspicious, I can’t stop thinking about it! We had a friend get married in September and then with his brother getting married in May, the wedding fever is definitely in the air and it just makes it worse. And now I find myself listening really closely to what he says at all times to see if he drops a hint. It’s really driving me crazy! I don’t want to obsess so much over it because that’ll just make the two weeks go by even slower; at the same time, I don’t want to get overly excited for it and then it turn out that I was making a big deal over nothing, and he really IS waiting for a better job to come along before giving me the ring.
What can I do to keep my mind off of it?!
