- Wedding: May 2015
A couple of things have happened lately that are making me feel suspicious about my SO’s plans for the next little while. I could use some input/talking down! 😉
So, a bit of background: we fairly recently agreed that marriage is in our future for real, probably in about 2 years. He wants to be engaged for a year at least, since he’s watched his brother and friends get married and knows it takes about a year to plan a wedding. He knows that I do not mind a long engagement. After this conversation, I shared my thoughts on stones (moissanite!) and sent him links to my two favorite ring designs, with his permission. 🙂
First peculiar thing: I bought a right hand ring for myself recently. The first time I showed it to him, he asked how big the stone was (not something he would normally want to know). I answered– 6 mm– and he persisted and asked, “but how big is it in carats?” I explained about carats/mm measurements not always matching up. And giggled. He said, “what?!?” like “what are you laughing about?” Well, what did he THINK I was giggling about? 😉 If those weren’t questions meant to help him with a certain purchase, I don’t know what is.
Second slightly peculiar thing: My birthday is next week. Usually, before my birthday, my SO and my parents all ask if there is anything I would like. This year, no one has; I actuall y= said something to my SO about it and all he would say was that since I picked what I would like for Christmas, he’s getting me a surprise for my birthday. Could be anything, but. . .
Third peculiar thing: my best friend and I were chatting online today, and when I brought up the birthday thing and my trying not to let my imagination run away with me, she said, “yes, probably not a wise plan :).” And when I went on further, about my hopes for possibly soemthing happening on our vacation in May, she seemed unusually noncommunicative but very encouraging about the whole thing.
I am probably being super irrational, but I can’t help but wonder if my friend knows something I don’t.
Am I crazy, or is this adding up to look like things might be in motion here???
