I called up my SO a few minutes ago (we are LDR while I finish school) just to say hi and see what’s up. Well he said he was just “browsing stuff on the internet” and I go “ooo, whatcha looking at?” He goes “I can’t tell you…” all secretive-like.
So me, hoping it’s rings but trying to be sneaky, I go “oh, are you looking at cruises?” because he really wants to go on one. He goes “nope…” so I ask about cars (he wants a new one). Nope. Dogs (he wants a puppy)? Nope.
If he “can’t tell me” (he said it in that “it’s a surprise/secret” voice), and it was none of the other big ticket items in our lives…well I’m hoping that means only one thing! I was good and instantly switched the subject to what I was looking up online, because I wanted to seem all naive about his browsing hahaha.
The fact he was looking online for a ring (assuming that’s what he was up to!) means he doesn’t have the ring picked out yet (boo)…so it will still be at least a month or more. But that’s okay, I CAN wait…if I try super hard. And come on weddingbee 15 times a day…
Thanks for reading my excited rambling lol

@kendra389: OOoo fun! That is super exciting!! I bet he was looking for a ring! Hopefully it won’t be long until he’s got it. . . maybe when you’re out of school for the year?
I’m in sort of a similar position– you know, you saw what I posted about the birthday card the other day. . . 🙂 But I’m not aware that he’s actually looking online yet! He’s got plenty of time on his own though, since I’m at school for days/weeks at a time.
Agh, isn’t the knowing it’s coming but having no idea when deliciously frustrating and fun? I’m liking this state of being MUCH better than being all upset and unsure (as I was for a while– I’m not sure if you were on here at that point). I have strong suspicions that my SO and I will be engaged by this time next year. . . I just don’t know if it’ll be next month or my next birthday or somewhere in between! Do you think it’ll be in the next few months, or in a year or so for you guys?
I know all about the long-distance for school thing. . . I’m 3 hours away from my SO most of the time, and being busy this time of year (and so very burned out!!!) I see him less often than usual. Agh. How much of school do you have left before graduating?

@Creiddylad: Hi again!
This is my first hint of actual online looking…I was hoping it was happening, but this is my first real suspicion!
I really havent any idea when it will be…and I do ebb and flow between being really excited and really frustrated! Mostly frustrated…I want it to be sooner than it will probably be…I would imagine it will be within this year, but I’d like it to be before this Fall. Actually I would love it for it to be at graduation…I graduate May 11th 🙂

@kendra389: Maybe it will be graduation. 🙂 🙂 Maybe mine will be the vacation starting the 22nd of May. Probably not though for me. . . who knows for you!
My goodness, it’s super late again. . . I meant to read a paper for my thesis proposal tonight and go to bed early. Guess what I did instead?! Weddingbee for 2 hours!
Anyway, nice to chat again. 🙂 Goodnight!

@Creiddylad: I worked on my thesis for 4 hours earlier today…I earned my weddingbee time (at least I did in my mind!!) Good chatting with you too! Here’s hoping we both get our rings soon 🙂
