My boyfriend and I are long distance basically he works 9 hours away for ten days and is home for 4 – 5. We have been together for a year. Recently we have been t
about moving in together and getting engaged and married a lot.
Ive found out from other people that he had already bought me a ring and was planning ondoing a romanticproposal this weekend. I had made him aware that my mother is very traditional and doesn’t believe in people living together before marriage and I would like him to discuss it with my parents before he asked me to get engaged and move in.
Today I got a text from him asking why no one was home and if my mother was with me. We were out having lunch so I casually try suggest we head home early. She refused then I told her someone had a surprise for her and needed to talk to her. She still refused and demanded to know who I was texting. So I tell her it’s my boyfriend and he wants to talk to her because my father was away.
When we finally get home my friends and his friends are at myparents place and he is a a suit with two bouquets one of pink and the other red. My mother looks imeadiatly confused and my bf tells me to go get changed and that he is stealing me away. About fifteen minutes later my mother bolting into my room and wants to know what’s going on. I tell her that he plans on proposing and rather than be excited for me she gives me the third degree on wether I’m pregnant, where do we plan to live the list goes on to the point that I’m in tears in my room until my bf comes into the room. She gives him a bit of the third degree asking if he is going to remain the invisible boyfriend (when I wish I was in my right mind to defend him because 1 he works away from home and we still talk everyday and 2 he isn’t dating her.)
Long story short she said she is happy if we are happy but then further grills me on why I’m crying and don’t look happy. He and all his and my friends left he never actually purposedbro me but we are meeting up for drinks tonight at nine with friends. We were susposed to do dinner but he had to cancel because he is passing out from not being able to sleep last night. So hopefully it happens later tonight I know he had the ring box on him I felt it when he hugged me before he left.
Now I’m sad getting ready for drinks hoping he will pop the question tonight before he leaves for the next 10 days while I’m doing this my mother is downstairs warmed up to the idea looking at wedding venues and bragging about her roses.
