I'm being completely illogical, and yet…

Not to dash your hopes, but maybe he just deleted the messages from his email? FI does this because he knows I snoop (and he ALWAYS leaves his email up on the computer), so he prints out the confirmation or saves them on the hard drive and then deletes the message itself. I’m not THAT nosey that I actually go out of my way to look for things, but if they’re right in front of me, I’ll look.

Maybe he has his father purchase the items since it sounds like that’s where it will be shipped?

@keylimepie:  Definitely try not to get your hopes up.  I know that’s so hard but you don’t want to end up a weepy mess like I was yesterday when you realize it isn’t happening yet!  It sounds like the reasons for waiting really make sense.  It would suck to get engaged around Christmas but not be able to wear you ring for 3 more months! 

Also, would he get you two things if he was going to propose?  Wouldn’t an engagement ring be enough?

He probably just deleted the emails (or sent them to his work account or something) so that you wouldn’t see what he bought. He knows you go into his email, so this is only logical.

You know you’ll be getting engaged soonish, so try not to freak out lol.

Good luck to you and I wish you the best!!

Trust me, I know all about high hopes and having them dashed so be careful!  BUT I think there is a lot to be said for the law of attraction and positive thinking so hang in there bee!!

@keylimepie:  hmmm I think he made a separate email and a proposal may be coming based on:  he said he already bought you stuff and had it sent home, yet there is nothing in his regular email (that he knows you go into), you’all have been talking about engagement, he was interested in that vintage ring you previously liked (getting an idea of what you want)   Just my thoughts.
