- Wedding: April 2015
So, yes…3 years and 8 months we’ve been together and this is the first Christmas we’ve spent together. Long story and it’s over now. Anyway, before we went to bed, I broke my pact and spoke to him about a definite timeline. I wasn’t expecting a ring today, as we were surrounded by his family.
He said before that next year will be it, but knowing me and my neurotic behind I will be nuts by the time our anniversary rolls around. I told him that I would hate anticipating it for our 4th and not knowing if it will or will not happen, and the only thing I want to know is if it will happen before or after. If it won’t happen before or on it, at least I can not have that wrapped up in my mind driving me crazy!
He kind of evaded for a while, saying he really wanted that to be private (everything pertaining to our future is closely guarded by him for now) but then he said, “March 15th.” That’s not the definite day, but that’s his late grandmother’s birthday. We were folding laundry a month ago and I joked that that’s when he would propose, not remembering that that was her special day and picking randomly. He stopped and said, “Where did you get that date from? That’s her birthday.” I think in some way he took that as a sign from her. We’re both very much into that stuff.
So, it will happen before our anniversary (April 25th!) Either way, I’m loving being with him but for my sanity I needed to know if it was before or after our anni. I know it probably sounds insane, but either answer would have put me at ease.
And because I love gifs and this totally encompasses my feelings:
BTW, congrats to all of the ex-waiting bees on getting engaged!
Any other waiting bees have definite timelines?
