This is my first thread– though I’ve posted on some others’ threads before, LoL.
I just had to say something to someone because I’m a little suspicious & wanted to know if I’m getting excited for nothing, LoL.
So.. yesterday morning I woke up & SO was already awake (as usual). He comes into the bedroom and says good morning and we chat about something. Then, on his way out of the room, he casually says “Oh.. I need your mom’s number. I need to ask her about something.” Of course, I tried to find out what he needed from her and he’s not telling, LoL.
When we first talked about getting engaged.. like 9 months or so ago.. he said that he would definitely ask my mom before proposing. I’m not close to my father.. I mean, we talk maybe twice a year. I don’t particularly dislike him, we’re just not close… if anyone gives me away at my wedding, it will definitely be my mother.
So.. I’m very suspicious.. on top of that, couple of weeks ago, I was looking at non-diamond engagement rings online and casually mentioned it to SO. He then started asking if I was reconsidering, since I never looked at anything other than diamonds before. I was like “Hmm.. I don’t know. Thinking about it.” He then told me that I needed to let him know soon.. he actually even gave me a deadline of like three or four days later that I would have to let him know if I’d changed my mind about the diamonds, LOL. I was considering aquamarine since it’s both of our birthstone… I eventually came back around to diamonds though. I still want an aquamarine ring, but not as an engagement ring.
ANYWAY.. does this seem like suspicious behavior? LoL… I don’t want to jump the gun, but it is exciting. I’ve held off on saying anything to my friends yet..

Is your mom the type that tells you everything? After he ends up talking to her maybe she will call you.I told FI before we got engaged, please don’t tell my mother because she would be too excited and would not keep her mouth shut. My dad and sister were the only people in my family who knew.

Thanks for the replies ladies.. I’m glad it seems suspicious to you all as well. I don’t feel like I’m overanalyzing (as I tend to do) anymore. :o)
@7mom: Ha.. nah, my mom is VERY sneaky… and way better at keeping secrets than I ever have been. I went to visit her one weekend and she had a brand new car.. without mentioning to anyone that she was even looking for one, LoL. I’m usually the blabbermouth in my family.. though most of the time I don’t do it on purpose. It just happens, Lol.

Sounds very suspicious indeed – in the best way possible! 🙂

I agree! It does sound like there is something on the horizon. Only side thought, would he consult your mom for a Christmas present?

@PopRox: I doubt it. My mom called me a week or two ago while he was with me to ask me what I wanted for Xmas… LoL. He knows that she has no idea what I want.. because I couldn’t think of anything at the time.
At first I thought he may be calling her to get information about what we’re doing for Xmas because he keeps asking me so he’ll know whether or not we’re going out of town but I never really had an answer. BUT, he asked me earlier today what we’re doing for Xmas… and I told him the plans. So that can’t be it..

Hopefully you’ll be off the waiting list by the new year

Uh oh! Sounds like something special is coming up!

Yeah it sounds like his up to something. I hope you won’t be waiting long.

Yeah, I know.. I hope I won’t be waiting too long… I’m unbelievably impatient as it is, LoL. I don’t want him to think that I suspect anything, so I’m just trying to keep my cool. I really hope it is by the end of the year.. that would be awesome! Though we are going on vaca the week of Vday and I was kind of thinking he would do it then… *sigh* I have no idea, LoL.
