- Wedding: October 2013
I’m sort of waiting but not waiting, because I am already engaged… we are a gay couple and I proposed to my partner in April, but we had agreed before that we both wanted to buy engagement rings and propose to each other. We recently set a date and booked our venue, but I’m still ring-less!
Well, it took awhile because we were moving and stressed about money, and I was indecisive about what I wanted, but I finally gave her a “wish list” in October. I thought maybe I’d get one over Thanksgiving, because we were visiting my family and I hinted that I’d like to show it off. But it didn’t happen, which wasn’t super disappointing, but just made me more crazy about when it’s coming!
I think she has bought it and I think it might be over Christmas… she LOVES the Xmas holiday and we’ll be near the ocean/beach which I love so I think maybe she will propose there.. so I’m very excited, but trying not to get too wound up, because if it doesn’t happen it will be a letdown and I’ll go crazy wondering when the next “event” might be…
AAARGH! Even when you’re already engaged and wedding planning, it is SO HARD to wait! (Although I realize it’s an extra dimension of sadness when you’re waiting just to be engaged… part of the reason I proposed to her was because I couldn’t stand waiting for that either!)
She loves the ring I bought her, and I love seeing her wear it and how happy it makes her, and I just want to have something of my own that I wear all the time, that constantly reminds me I am getting married to my favorite person ever!
If it doesn’t happen, I’m sure I will post a follow up… just wanted to share with everyone hoping for a BIG holiday gift…
