- Wedding: September 2016
My boyfriend and I have been together for 2 1/2 years and recently it’s kind of been mentioned in heavy conversation that he realized living together before proposing is just a formailty, and that he’d be okay being engaged while still in school (He is in his last year of nursing school and I already have a 4 year degree, but am going back for an associates).
Now, here’s the meat of the situation: A week ago my sister texted me asking my ring size. I asked if this knowledge was for her or someone else. She said it was for her, but “know that I know, it could be anyone lol”.
He never asked what I wanted for Christmas, but has mentioned that one of my presents is “just something small” and could have been opened before Christmas if a situation/circumstance arose but since it hasn’t, I’ll probably get it for Christmas instead.
We live in Oregon and I mentioned a few days ago that I’ve never been to ZooLights up in Portland. The Oregon Zoo is decorated in over a million lights and it’s supposed to be spectacular. One of his friends who lives in Portland recently accidentally revealed that my SO had bought tickets to ZooLights and was going to take me up there New Years Eve and spend the night. I guess the trip was supposed to be a surprise.
Something else odd, his mother texted me late yesterday asking if I could send her two particular photos of me and him when I got the chance. This morning my SO called me to make sure I got the message that his mom wanted the photos. This could have easily been sent via text, since he was at work. I asked what they were for and he pawned it off as “probably something to do with a Christmas present, I don’t know”
Now, if I didn’t know any better, I would say this sounds suspiciously like something’s up. What do you ladies think? Am I jumping to conclusions? What’s your experience? Did you see your proposal coming? Anything is welcome!
