Uh… I feel like I’m in waiting mode again.
I got tired of waiting for FI to get it together and proposed to him myself about 10 months ago. And I am quite pleased that he said yes. But he also told me he still wanted the opportunity to get me a ring and propose his way. And he was all set to buy the ring a month ago before shit kind of hit the fan and we depleted our emergency fund. Well the ring money is now the new emergency fund so there is no ring in sight and likely no formal proposal coming either. Just kind of a bummer because he had been hinting about planning something on our anniversary (the 28 th)and there has been no additional mention of anything. Wednesday is also my birthday and the last day of my internship (both exciting things). FI is supposed to be flying to meet me and help me drive the 1000+ miles back home… and he seems totally distant. The end of this month had been built up like it is supposed to be special and I just kind of feel deflated.
I know that disappointment is on its way because I can’t seem to give up hope that he’ll follow through anyhow, even though it won’t happen. But my coping with disappointment skills are a bit rusty. Any advice?
Just knew the waiting ladies could relate so I thought I’d post here.
