The past few days my SO has been acting extremely weird. We visited his Dad and Step-Mom on Friday night because SO had to pick up a welding machine and god knows what else. While there, I was talking with his Step-Mom (with SO in the room), because she has an open mind and gives great advice – even to a 31 year old! LOL. Anyhow, while we were talking, she mentioned how her daughters wedding anniversary is coming up and how she’d love to see SO and I get married. As she said that my SO’s Dad asked my SO to take a walk w/him and the dog.
Both Step-Mom and I sat there shocked. She then said that they’re probably talking about it. We then got on the topic of my SO’s ex and if he had brought her around as much as he brings me around. Step-Mom said that they saw her every once in a while, but she wasn’t around as much as I am. That made my insides beam with pride. SO and his Dad came back and of course, both had huge smiles on their faces. Of course, that sparks the “What’s he thinking” question.
The whole way home, he didn’t say too much. He did bring up getting engaged/marriage and said that he’s been thinking about it for a while, but he’s not financially ready yet. Which I understand. Plus he said he wants me to be with my job for at least 6 or 7 months before we move forward with our relationship. He then went on to say that he’s happy we got our Great Dane puppy, that we moved in together and that we’re going on 2 years. I’m happy about all of the above as well, but in the past he has never really wanted to discuss engagment/marriage at length. We continued the conversation and he stopped once I said that I would rather my mom help me plan our wedding then his mom because she is such an attention whore and I don’t want her stealing the spot light like she does on every thing. He knows full well how she is because he’s seen it and mentioned it to me, numerous times. Anyone could pin-point it from a mile away before they even meet her! When I asked him why he stopped talking he said that he had hopped that his mom would help too. I just said that we’d discuss it when it came time and he agreed.
We had a more at depth convo the next evening on our way home from Dinner with his Dad & Step-Mom in honor of Father’s Day. I said that I didn’t feel comfortable talking about it until we actually get engaged. Since the convos he has been acting really weird. He’s been hiding windows when he’s on the computer, or his phone. He’s been secretative when I ask him what he’s doing or where he’s going. Typically he is very open when it comes to those questions. I asked him what he and his Dad spoke about on Friday when they went for the walk with the dog. He said that it wasn’t anything for me to worry about. To which he had a smirk on his face.
His birthday was yesterday and when I asked him if there was anything else that he wanted besides dinner, ice cream and the cards (didn’t buy him any presents since I’m saving to get him a very large christmas present – he’s aware of this). He said that the one present he wants isn’t for just him….and left it at that. Now, my head is swimming with possibilities. We are going on a cruise in December….could that be when he proposes? We are planning a weekend trip to the shore one weekend soon….could it be then? I know I shouldn’t get my hopes up, but seriously WTF is he thinking? I wish I could pry it out of him, but I know how bad that would look.
Any advice? Thanks in advance Bees!!
