Sometimes during the waiting period, it seems that may boyfriends do things that are misleading, funny or endearing. Often times they do these things innocently, completely unaware that our girly senses are finely tuned and just waiting to pick up the tiniest hint that he will propose.
The other day my boyfriend was talking to me about finances and he told me that he’s doing better about saving money. So he was telling me that things look great and he’s buying himself a MAC next month after I give him my 3 months’ rent in one lump sum. So he tells me that he will even have some left over to save for……. “ oh.. you know…other stuff”. Of course my girl ears perked right up. He has said that he will be proposing in the next year, year and a ½ at most AND the moissanite ring that we really like is around $1000! Hmmmmm.
I pretended not to noticed, of course, but my gods I wanted to poke at him for more information!
What “innocent” things have your guys been doing?

That totally does not seem innocent to me at all!! If my guy said that, holy crap I would be so freaking excited!

Oh I don’t know. See, his goal has been to have a cushion in his account of about $1000. It may be that TV he’s been wanting to get, which is about $500. OR……
IT MAY BE $$$$ FOR MY RING! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

haha, my guy had been leaving not so subtle hints like that about his ring savings. once he mentioned putting some extra cash for the ring and then said, “this is the part when you get all excited.” LOL. i had played it cool but i was totally happy dancing on the inside!

@Tunacupcakes: OMG. I would have walked myself to the restroom, locked the door, and proceeded to boogie down with my excited dance. 🙂 But that’s just me.
I don’t know if my guy is doing anything. I want to say no. I make more than him and I have significantly less debt so if something were to happen I kinda expected it would take him a while to put the money together. But yesterday he had to run “errands.” He had to run to work for a moment and take care of “other things.” I didn’t pry. But he’s very obvious when he’s being vague. We only recently started talking rings. So he’s either cheating on me, being silly with his vagueness, or going on secret ring field trips. Hoping for that last one. 🙂

aww this is soooo cute! My fiance and I had been talking about getting married for a while and one day I just walked into a jewelry store he followed me and what I thought would be pointing out the ring I liked turned into him seeing if he could get store credit… him being approved… and us getting a ring right there… he had it a few days in our safe and proposed before we left the house for a super bowl party. Ha weird huh. Surprises scare me, I need to know whats going on I can’t handle the sneaky stuff and were always together plus I don’t like waiting for anything so even though I missed out on the anticipation and the awesome engagement story we’ll still get to have that fairy tale wedding. =) I hope he asks you soon! It sounds like it could be coming and he’s dropping hints to see how you react hehe I’m gonna say it again: awww sooooo cute!

Well, he didn’t say it in that way… you know THAT way. Like “oh YOU know.. OTHER stuff.” If I didn’t know any better I would have just shrugged it off. It did sound… strange. It was said very casually, but something about the way he said it was just “off.” I know the purchases he wants to make like MAC and a TV and I know financially it can still work out and I know he really doesn’t buy anything. Meh, there’s also some gut instinct that he was referring to a ring which I’m going to say is valid since I don’t often get this feeling.
@tea. That is too funny! Cool as a cucumber. I can totally see me doing that. Playing too cool and then my guy being all confused as to why I wasn’t more excited. 😉
@claireos. Gah. Vagueness! I really hope it is ring shopping. Really, what would be the point of silly vagueness for no reason!?
@ HappilyEverAfter54- I am a person who doesn’t like surprises either. Well.. kinda. Complete surprises are cool, it’s the knowing there is a surprise that isn’t. I’m trying to learn how to enjoy the anticipation of the unknown because my guy is DEAD set on it being a complete surprise. I have no idea when, where, how, or anything related to it. I do know it will be moissanite set in platinum or palladium within the year. woo hoo. Lol
I’m also trying SO SO SO hard not to say anything about rings, engagement or anything related. I get the feeling that I need to pretend to forget about it before he will propose. So….there. Magically I’m not thinking about a gorgeous sparkly on my finger 24-7. 😉
Also, earlier today he bent down hand me something and he got down on one knee. Total proposal stance!!! I started giggling and smiling and he wouldn’t leave it alone until I told him. When I told him that it looked like he was practicing, he didn’t have much to say. lol

My SO started asking about what kind of honeymoon I would want and I read a LOT into that, apparently he had just found out a friend had gotten engaged and was very shocked, he hadn’t even been dating anyone when I met his friend for the first time. Although in my defense he had taken me to a MARRIAGE counseling session for spouses adjusting to army life. We were the only ones there not engaged, and that was very confusing when he made it plain he wasn’t planning anything at all. Poor guy, he’s trying 😀
