- Wedding: December 2014
Me and my bf have been dating for just over 7 years, and I going to walk imminently as he would never discuss marriage, timelines, engagements, etc.
Anyway, on my birthday (yesterday) all I got was a card in the morning whereas normally my bf gives me present and cant wait for me to open it. I got slightly suspicious the day before as he had booked a restuarant next to where we first met(which is unlike him to be romantic)
I didn’t want to get my hopes up (as this would have caused a meltdown) and convinced myself that my present must be round his parents house and he was going to give it to me after work. Anyway we get home and nothing so I get ready to go out. The meal was really nice and it was odd as my bf was saying things like, ‘why don’t you have the lobster,’ whereas normally he would say things like, ‘woah that’s really expensive’. Before the meal I had mentioned to him that I couldn’t find my monther engagement ring and he brought this up during the meal as he thought her enternity ring was her engagement ring, and I had to explain what an eternity ring was. Again this is very odd behaviour from him. During the meal he also keep looking down at my hands and holding them and playing with my fingers. Again this was very odd.
Anyway the meal finished and he asked me if I had enjoyed my present (the meal)and I told him that I had. I was feeling slightly sad that nothing had happened but was determined not to meltdown. We get into the car and he opened a bag of sweets and I say, ‘woah I thought you were stuffed from the meal’. he takes out a gummy ring and tries to give it to me. I try to take it and he goes, ‘no no you have to put it on that finger. I put it on my finger and he says, so do you want to get enagaged then, and i’m like WHAT, and he says do you want to get enagaged. I say yes, but are we getting married (as I do not want a never ending engagement) and he says yes.
So we are going ring shopping at the weekend!!!!
