Just wanted to write a post on some random waiting happenings!
As much as I TRY not to talk about weddings, engagements, etc…I can’t help it! It always comes up! My Boyfriend or Best Friend is standing up in a friends wedding in a couple weeks, I have 2 close friends who just got engaged, etc etc etc and it always turns into talking about US! He asked me if his brother proposed to his Girlfriend (they are moving across the country together) if I would get “that look” on my face…the one he says I always get when I hear people got engaged (what!?) haha
My birthday was a couple weeks ago and we stopped by his parents for a bbq that evening. When we left, we got in his car and he was like I’ve been carrying this around in my pocket all day and I just want to give it to you…he hands me a Tiffany’s box and says, “It’s not an engagement ring, I hope you didn’t think I would propose in my car” nice, right!? (sidenote: I DO think he would, he’s random like that…also it was def not a ring box, but I have to admit while he was giving the speech I thought for a very, very split second maybe thats what it was! LOL!) I did get an awesome pair of earrings though! 🙂
He also has told me that he would go look at rings with me on more than one occasion but I want him to suggest when we go! I don’t want to bring it up again (refer to first paragraph about trying not to talk about getting engaged)
We are moving in together at the end of October SO I’m hoping SOON after that?!?

Aww! Well at least he’s thinking about engagements and all since he said that after giving you the ring box!
I’m definitely excited to go ring shopping and I’m going to be ecstatic when he suggests it too!

I know how you feel! I try and try not to talk about engagement or weddings because we’re not quite there yet but sometimes it just comes out. He talks about wedding stuff though too sometimes.
Everytime I hear other people get engaged before us I do get a little disappointed, I try not to show it too much. Especially when people started dating years after us. He has a couple friends that have started dating, gotten engaged and had their wedding already who started dating after we did. He says not to compare our relationship to others and that we have a good thing but it’s just so hard!
My boyfriend started seriously talking about engagment a few weeks before Valentines day. Then he made a comment that made me pretty sure it wouldn’t happen on valentines day. I told him to please not get me jewelery this year for valentines day. I didn’t tell him my reasoning but I didn’t want to see a small box and assume it was an engagement ring. He didn’t listen but got me a bracelet so that at least was in a different sized box!
I hope you get engaged right around move in time!

@Carpie: I don’t know if I would have told him not to get jewelry…
@UmakeURownLUCK: It’s great he’s talking about it! I hope it happens soon for you. And you know he’s been at Tiffany’s lately…all very promising.
And I know how you feel about other people getting engaged. Boyfriend or Best Friend hasn’t seen “that look” on my face yet but in a few weeks we’re going on a trip with another couple and I know the guy proposing, most likely before then. And they met only 2 weeks before us. So I’m hoping my face doesn’t do anything too weird!
