I’d say I’m in limbo…

SO and I’ve been dating for 9 years (in October)…started dating young.

We went and looked at rings in January and really heard nothing since about 2 weeks ago. I started noticing little hints, but SO swears they are not hints and that I’m just looking for clues. I think he’s throwing me off. Well, he leaves for an intern August 5 until January 5th, so I’ll be able to visit him just a few times during those 5 months.

I know he doesn’t have the ring, because he was given a ring to use to help purchase a ring for me and he hasn’t sold that yet. I just found out he has a savings account (because it’s not connected to our account) so I have no clue how much is in there…atleast $1400. 

Well, he wouldn’t give me any hints or a timeline, all he’s said is he doesn’t want an engagement longer than a year, ideally 10ish months. Well at dinner last night HE BROUGHT UP THE WEDDING TALK (which I always do, he doens’t). I was excited. He asked what time of year I’d like to get married. I said preferably fall Sept-Nov. He AGREED! So that means…by his timeline for the length of engagement he wants, He is going to propose before Decemeber!

Well my mom is a terrible secret keeper and she said he said yesterday he wasn’t going to do it before he left for the intern…so that means sometime while he is gone…

So exciting, yet nervewracking! I’m sooo happy though to have seemed to narrow down a timeframe!!!

That is such great news! What an amazing conversation. I think you should let him know your venue ideas as they come up. But if I were you I would expect a november/ december engagement. YAY!!

@newcitylights:  That’s what I was wondering! So sometime while he is gone, I guess, after August 5th?

Or is mom throwing me off? I don’t think so.

I really don’t want him to leave and us not be engaged because I’m going to be antsy the WHOLE time he is gone waiting for him to randomly surprise me! Guess I have to have my nails looking nice every day…

@newcitylights:  Good question!! My bf knows she is awful with secrets. So I told him that she mentioned that they spoke. But I didn’t tell him that she said it wouldn’t be before he left. I just said if you talk toher anymore make sure you tell her not to say a word, because she can’t keep her mouth shut.

My mom doesn’t really know how antsy I am. I mean we just started talking about this a week ago. I don’t think my bf will tell her anything else lol, or my dad because he is terrible too. Lol my mom wears the pants in their relationship haha

As far as I know, his mom knows, but she doesn’t budge!! She’s never even mentioned to me that she knows we went looking at rings!!!

Either way, I just hope it’s before like our anniversary in October!!

He has been ESPECIALLY sweet lately. ANNDDD this morning he called his car repair guy and said “my fiancee’s mom needs her brakes checked”!!!!!! He called me his fiancee!!! And I was standing right there!!!! He’s never done that before!!! Maybe it’s because he didn’t want to say girlfriend’s mom or MIL lol he isn’t too fond of her haha
