I am freaking out!
My boyfriend and I are 27, we’ve been together since we were 19 and are very much in love. We live together, have two dogs, and are very happy. I know he is the love of my life.
The past month or so we have been having serious conversations regarding getting engaged. We talk about who we would invite to our wedding constantly, little details like that.
One day he asked me to look for something on his phone while he was in the bathroom and I accidentally saw an email that I don’t think I was meant to see. It was a purchase order for an engagement ring I told him I loved! You can only imagine my excitement!
Well, now that I know he has the ring I am freaking out. We have a date night planned for this Saturday night. Chris (my boyfriend) wants to go to this great resturant that we both love and then take a walk through Rittenhouse Park. I tired to connect the dots to these places as to why they’re special to our relationship, and it started to seem obvious to me that he’s going to propose this weekend. Well, based on a few comments he made today, I’m not so sure anymore. Example: I asked if he still wanted to walk around in the park after dinner. His response was something like, “yeah, if you want to. Maybe we can get coffee at that Starbucks near there too or something, it’s up to you but I would really like to.” If he was proposing or had something secretive planned I would’ve expected a more definite answer. To test the waters, I asked if he would want to meet up with a mutual friend while walking around the park after dinner. He said “it’s up to you, but I don’t know. Whatever you want to do, but I’d like to keep it to just us since it’s a date night.” Now am I being crazy and thinking way too much about these answers he’s given me? I am really starting to lose my mind here! I know he has the ring, but now I’m scared he’s going to wait to actually propose. We’ve been together for almost 8 years and I’m just really in need of some advice. Help!

Don’t overthink it. I found a picture of my engagement ring on my fiance’s phone THREE MONTHS before he proposed. So for such a long time I was expecting it at any second. Anytime there was a special date I was expecting to be proposed to. Just assume that it’s not going to happen this weekend. That way if it does it will be awesome, but if it doesn’t you won’t be dissapointed. 🙂

LOL relax!!!!! let him surprise you and stop analyzing everything little thing he says! maybe his personality is that he’s always very easy going and he doesn’t want to not be easy going now to make you think something is up. i say – now that you know the ring is coming, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride 🙂

Thank you ladies. I def am realizing I need to relax, it’s just I’ve waited SO long for this that I’m worried and over-analyzing EVERYTHING. I don’t really have anyone to talk to about this that understands; all of my close girlfriends are mostly single or in brand new relationships, so I feel guilty even talking about it. I hope I don’t sound like a crazy person but I just can’t help it! Is this a normal reaction or am I losing my mind?

I think he’s gonna do it. You two have been together so long, he probably knows you well and realizes that you might be on to him. Just enjoy your date either way, and know that he intends to propose, even if it’s not when you expect!
Whoops! Just saw that you updated, Congrats!!!
