After a tough weekend of waiting I had a more rational conversation with SO. I told him that I understood that he felt a proposal should be a surprise, but I didn’t think the fact that he wanted to marry me should be a secret. I also told him that I was going to do my best to keep quiet until our 3rd anniversary in January, but it was going to be tough for me to get through the holidays and I asked him to be patient with me. I also asked that he didn’t do anything that might get my hopes up on Christmas day, if it wasn’t going to happen (I have a friend whose Darling Husband tricked her into thinking a ring was in a package. . .then it wasn’t. . .she freaked out in front of family, even though he had the ring ready to go at the end of presents. It just seemed so cruel to me)
He told me that it was going to happen before Christmas. 6 little weeks until then. I really, truly hope I can wait patiently. I think he’s earned a pleasant girlfriend until then.
