The other day ( fathers day) BF and I had both of our familys spend the day at the beach together. It was GREAT..Then my sister says ” I cant wait till you to get married, I can only imagine what your ring is going to look like” ugh..I kind of wanted to slap her because I was doing so well with not mentioning anything. Then it began.
I Looked over at my BF who was pretending not to hear anything that she said ( haha poor guy) So I start this convo..
Me- ” can we just elope”
Him ” No “
Me ” can we just go get me a ring, even a ring pop will do”
( he already fake proposed to me with a ring pop years and years ago)
Him ” Did that already.. haha “
Me ” but i just want to marry you, i know im super anoyying with this but i just want to be with you forever”
Him ” Listen, Im trying. I want to get you the most beautiful ring ever and it isnt that easy to do. I want to get you a ring that every time you look at it you are reminded of how much you mean to me, how much i love you and appreciate everything you do for me. I just need a little bit more time.”
me :: BIG SMILE ::
I cant even believe how sweet he is, and it makes me feel terrible that ive been up and down about waiting with him. He was so completly honest and staired me straight in the eyes the whole time and i feel like he really spoke from the heart.
Then i over heard him talking to my brother he said i tried to finance the ring i want to get her but ( i couldnt hear this part) . So the guy told me its not going to happen”
AHHH!! Im so inlove and happy right now

thats so sweet, such great news! It’s always amazing when guys come out with things like that… sometimes it hurts so much to be waiting, we tend to think our man has stopped caring. But it’s lovely when it’s not true! congrats 🙂

Wow! How adorable! I love how he affirmed you by telling you how much he loved you along with clearly telling you why he needed more time (to get you the ring you deserved, etc.). Sometimes I know it’s easy to feel like he doesn’t care–I’ve done it too–but this definitely proves he does!
I’m actually in a very similar situation, though my guy actually has the ring (we picked it out together). But he was in Ecuador for a month and then we were traveling together for a few weeks, and I know he wants time to plan a big elaborate proposal and hasn’t been able to do it. But he told me all of that (without telling me what the proposal is of course!) and that it’s going to happen this summer, so now I’m super-excited (and can hardly wait!).

@RapunzelRapunzel: Yes! That’s what I loved also, and that he was so straight foward about it. And your right about the whole sometimes not feeling like they care and all. I’m just so happy he finally came out and said it lol.
He has the ring! How exciting! That’s awesome that your able to hold it together knowing he has it! I’d probably be losing it haha, so it’s better that he doesn’t tell me! And super cute that he wants time to plan a big elaborate proposal! Ill keep an eye out for your proposal story! Good luck!!
