Here it is Thursday night and I can already feel myself getting my hopes up again. I know nothing will happen even though this weekend he has brought the topic of engagement up way more than I have. Even last night when he did, I simply said I don’t want to hear it. I stopped him right there. I feel like if he were actually going to do it, he wouldn’t be bringing it up. I guess in a sense, I am trying to take back control of my life and choosing not to give him the chance to get my hopes up again. I just hope I can be strong and continue this through the weekend. The real trouble will be next weekend when we are supposed to go away together for a long weekend. I’m sure I will really let it get to me then. Too bad they don’t make a shock collar for waiting bees like they do for barking dogs… I know it would help me..LOL

I know it’s hard when you are going on trps etc, thinking is this it? It doesn’t help when it seems the chances of a proposal on a trip are quite high if you are expecting a proposal. For example, I just got a call from my friend on holiday in Europe saying she was engaged. I knew days ago when she first flew out that it was likely (such a trip is out of the ordinary for her), and I’m very sure it crossed her mind before and during the trip that this was the time.
On the other hand, as many men who decide to propose on holiday may think they want to surprise you by not doing it on holiday. So, next time I’m to go away with SO I would try to focus more on the aestetics of going on holiday. For example, really indulge in the nice food, beaches, walks etc and try to make the most of exploring a new place, with the SO. Think how better it is than being bored or stressed at work. Then, if proposal happens, it happens 🙂
Anyway, I know how hard it is as I get my hopes up everytime we go for dinner somewhere… I’ve got to not do this!
