- Wedding: September 2012
I’ve been lurking around here the last several weeks, and I figured I would introduce myself finally, after hearing everyone’s stories. I’m 28, been with my SO for a little over a year…and I know EXACTLY the week that he’s going to pop the question!
We have had detailed discussions about what each of our expecations were for marriage, children, etc. for a while now, and we were planning in on living together in June, so I knew for sure it was happening before then. He has wanted to go to BVI for vacation, recreating a sailing vacation he did for one of the guys, this time plus the girlfriends. A bit ago, I was discussing the vacation plans with him, telling him that I’m going because I love him, but going with a bunch of his friends from back home that I’m not familiar with and sailing for days isn’t exactly my cup of tea. He then tells me, “This trip is about you though!.” I rebutted with all the reasons why I thought it wasn’t, then in his frustration says “There’s a very specific reason why I want to go there.” After that, I knew exactly what the reason was, haha.
I still have some surprises left in all of this. I haven’t a clue what the ring looks like (family heirloom) or the exact day nor location. I’m happy that there’s an element of surprise there, but I know exactly what’s coming.
