There’s been some uncertainty about employment for us the last few months (BF just started a new job about 6 months ago and I am in my third year of law school), but today, I got a post-grad job offer (a clerkship, for my JD-bees)!!!! Not knowing if I was going to have a job at graduation was definitely something my BF wanted to resolve before popping the question. He is always nervous about money and wanted to make sure we both had some income before moving forward with planning an expensive wedding
Also, my birthday was this past weekend, and I knew he wasn’t going to propose on my birthday. We made a deal that if we picked out the ring together, he got to plan the proposal and basically, that I had to be in the dark after he bought the ring. That said, after he gave me my present, he told me that it is coming soon, and that he knows I will be happy with when it is coming! My man is not the greatest with emotions (comes from a very traditional, buttoned up, sweep it under the rug kind of family), so I’ll take what I can get!
A holiday proposal has now become an actual possibility. Let the speculation commence! 🙂

@runninginheels: Welcome! It’s nice to be able to chat with so many other “waiting” Bees. I find that it definitely helps me to be a little bit more patient about the whole thing. A very exciting time! 🙂
Congrats on your job offer!! That is awesome. I think that once the financial component is already secured, it makes surprises like that so much more enjoyable. Plus, it takes a lot of pressure off of your SO.
That being said, I am thinking that since he blatantly told you that it will be soon, he probably means it. I don’t think someone that traditional (my BF is extremely traditional as well, so I can relate) would vocalize something like that if he wasn’t serious about it.
Very excited for you! I have always loved the idea of a holiday engagement. I think that is the perfect time of year for it. 🙂

Hi @runninginheels: First and foremost, as this is your DEBUT Post… a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”
CONGRATULATIONS on your Birthday and the job offer… that is splendid news
It does indeed sound like a Proposal is in the works…
Your man sounds like a fairly “traditional” guy, so ya I’m betting along with you it’ll be a Holiday Proposal in the next few months.
PS… I love your WBee User Name… so cute.
