My SO and I have been together for about 2 years. We have already discussed marriage, kids, how long we would like to be engaged before we get married, etc. He has even taken me in to look at rings, emailed me links of rings and asked me what I thought of them! That was around Christmas. Here it is almost 4 months later!
I know its on his mind, which is good; BUT he’s been buying trucks and spending thousands of dollars right and left for man stuff and I kind of let it get me down. He asked me what was wrong and I don’t want to pressure him into proposing, but he insisted I tell him what was wrong. I sheepishly told him “You’ve been spending alot of money on this lately, and it just makes me wonder, are we EVER going to get married?” A giant smile swept across his face, and he hugged me, and said “you’re so silly baby! It’s not taking away from your ring money, don’t worry”. We both laughed a little and he gave me a kiss. This made me feel better, but I still don’t think he’s bought a ring, which make me inpatient. lol.
Also, last month I went on a weekend trip to visit my family and he had to work. When I got back late at night, we were up talking and his phone lit up and it had a picture message from a girl named “Jess”. I immediately got hurt and asked him why another girl was texting him pictures this late at night. (We both have a mutall rule that we don’t text or call the opposite sex, which works for us fine, and he is VERY good about sticking to the rule, so this really surprised and hurt me). He grabbed the phone quickly and grinned. He said he couldn’t tell me. Hurt, I demanded him tell me. He said, “Honey, is a surprise for you. Please don’t ruin this one!” (I have super awesome ninjia skills and I usually ruin all my surprises on accident lol) I got pretty hurt at first, then a light bulb came on “HE MIGHT ACTUALLY BE BUYING ME A RING!!!!!!!” And then I wasn’t so hurt anymore, but a tad skeptical lol. But I figured if he was telling the truth, I would have proof soon!
So I know he’s been looking, even possibly looking online and getting pictures texted to him of some rings. But I have no conformation that he has actually BOUGHT one,… which is driving me crazy!! He wants this to be a giant surprise and will not give me ANY details. He has even told me he thinks proposing on a big day or holiday is a dead giveaway and ruins the surprise so its going to be some random day to catch me off guard. lol. So now every outing we go to that is big or pretty, I have anticipation, and I hate it!! Because when it doesn’t happen I get let down a bit 🙁
Do you think he will propose soon? I SURE hope sooooooo! 🙂
