Hi bees! So, I posted around three months ago now about how I had a feeling a proposal was on the horizon… well I think it is getting closer now!! We have talked openly about marriage, and at the end of March, we went ring trying-on in Birmingham’s (UK) Jewellery Quarter, and I saw two rings I liked, and also another in the city we live in, this one being my favourite! My parents came up to stay with us at Easter and I later found out that my OH asked my Dad for his blessing to propose to me, as he knew this would be important to me. Anyway, I think I have probably ruined it for myself a little, as last month we had a stupid disagreement when I was premenstrual, and I got tearful about how I feel my life has been ‘on hold’ and how keen I am to be moving on, and being my OH’s wife is really important to me, because I love him so much and I want our relationship to be moving on, he got emotional too and said he wants me to be his wife and then he told me that he had ordered the ring, he wanted to keep it a surprise but I was so upset that he told me as he thought it would help me to feel better and to be reassured about things.
I do feel that I have ruined it slightly for myself as I had previously said I had always wanted the surprise, romantic proposal, but I have been through a terrible time in a previous relationship and I gave up a lot to move up here and live with my OH and he knows I want commitment.
He is being secretive about this weekend, and I have a gut feeling it is going to happen!! Getting excited but trying to stay realistic so I don’t feel upset if it doesn’t happen. I have recently had a family bereavement (my Grand-dad 🙁 ) and it’s been an emotional time so I imagine I will be even more emotional, but in a good way,if it happens! Keep your fingers crossed ladies x
