Okay. So my fellow and I bought my ring about a week and a half ago from an Etsy seller. Obviously we are getting engaged. The question is when.
He is one of those oh-so-funny Jim Halpert types who is likely to feign a proposal a few times to freak me out, and I can’t tell if he’s doing that to me right now.
My birthday is in 2 weeks and all I want to do is go out to eat with him, come home, watch a movie on Netflix and have some wine. I’m a pretty undemanding gal. He keeps asking me where I want to eat and that “I’m going to LOVE the present I’m getting on my birthday”. Note: he didn’t say ‘birthday present’. Also note: why do I have to decide where I want to eat now? (I’m suspicious that he is going to have some kind of surprise waiting for me, like his entire family will be there or something.) And the thing is, we already got my birthday present. I asked for gardening tools, so we went last week to Lowe’s and bought some, and that was that.
I don’t want to get so excited that I’ll have a meltdown if he doesn’t pop the question. But man, do I hate surprises!

Oh, he IS Jim Halpert!! HA. Try not to stress since you know it’s definitely going to happen at some point. In fact, see if you can beat him at his own game… Tell him you want Taco Bell for your birthday dinner and when it’s time to go, come out in ripped-up jeans and a ratty t-shirt. That might make him squirm. 🙂 Keep us posted!!

Oh my goodness I would be squirming with impatience. Try not to let it get to you because you don’t want to be a grumpy old bag when he asks and you reply, “took you long enough!” Take extra care to look cute without the effort and always carry a camera
but then this post was in March so maybe he already asked by now haha

I agree with Miss Babeski, I am in the same position and it is pure agony. He got my ring a couple weeks ago and not begging him to propose everyday is nearly impossible. I feel your pain and I hope he puts you out of your misery soon!

@morgobride I hope you get your ring soon too! Good luck!
And LOL @MissBabeski I will definitely try not to be a grumpy old bag. I really hope no one ever has a reason to describe me that way! Except maybe when I’m 99 and it’s just me and the cats. Haha.
