SO and I have been dating for 10 months, but have known each other professionally for almost three years (he was my mentor when I was in law school). I found out (from my mother) that my SO asked my father and mother for their blessing to ask to marry me in May (they live out of town and were in for a visit).
I know my SO has been looking at rings for awhile now and has hinted at an upcoming engagement. We talk about future plans often. I try not to get too excited when this happens because, like many waiting bees, we’ve all heard the “soon” song and dance before!
I think THIS WEEKEND may be THE weekend. On Monday, he came over to my place and was super giddy. He said he arrived late because he was having cocktails with his mentee from 4 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. I didn’t believe his story because he hates spending more than 30 minutes with this particular mentee and he had not been drinking! On Tuesday and Wednesday night, he made all sorts of excuses about why he couldn’t come to my place (we usually spend every night together at my place or his). He is being extra lovey-dovey. It’s sweet.
My sister called me today and told me that she saw a picture of the ring. SO sent it to my parents along with his proposed proposal. She would not give me any more details.
Work has been super stressful (especially this week) and he told me last night to let him make all the plans for us this weekend so I could just relax and not have to think or worry. I think this may be it…EEKKKKK! 🙂 I am so excited and hopeful!!!
