Just a bit of a fun thread really, but maybe we could share any “clues”, “hints” we pick up on whilst waiting.
Today, SO brought up how long we’ve been together and then explained that in 2 months’ time it is a significant milestone. “Shall we go for dinner at X? Leave it with me”…. I’m not expecting proposal then but it did make me think for a minute. 🙂
What hints did you pick on in the past day or too?

- Wedding: July 2017 - Bristol zoo
I havn’t had any “clues” in the past couple of days 🙁 I don’t think I’ve ever had any clues tbh.
But yesterday Boyfriend or Best Friend was lying on the sofa while I cradled his head on my chest and he told me that he really loves coming home nowadays (I moved in a bit over 3 months ago) knowing that I’ll be there when he gets back, I felt so gooey I cried a bit :3

– Talking about rings
– Taking you to go look at rings
– Talking about being engaged
– Talking about shared finances, future holidays, future homes
– Asking about others engagements and proposals
– Not being turned off at the idea or making jokes when you do mention engagement
That’s how I knew he was serious. I still had no indication when exactly it would happen. I just had to trust it would. Lots of tears were shed. And I loathe surprises. But he got me and it was very sweet. No girl I know has truly known. They’ve had ideas but all were totally surprised.

@emmrr3: This isn’t a hiiiiint really, but…
He asked his friend who he’s visiting for a few days to be his best man! In our future wedding! Ah! 😀
“You’re going to be my wife!”
And he sent me a pic (screenshot from google) of the ring (we picked it out together) the other morning. 😀

I don’t really think this is a hint, but my SO bought me earrings yesterday. Not a big deal, except that he never has ever ever ever (in 5.5 years) bought me jewelry or anything like that unless it was my birthday or Christmas or our anniversary. When I asked him why he bought them (after thanking him profusely), he said something about “trying to be more romantic.” Does it mean he’s getting ready to propose? I don’t know. But if it means free jewelry, I’ll take it!

Other than having engagement and wedding chats,
– Mr. Browneyes opted to pay for something I wanted. I am an independent person who usually deal with what I really want. He definitely caught my attention when he insisted that he would take care of it.
– When I was hanging out the laundry, he came and helped with the sheets and towels. At first, I was wondering what the heck was going on. Never in our 8 years together i’ve ever seen this. We do not live together and it is his mom the one who does his laundry. That showed me that he is trying to gain favour in my eyes. 🙂 I never thought that laundry could make me smile soo much!

He looked up “marriage proposal ideas” on his tablet on Wednesday. 😛 I had to lie when he asked if I saw anything on it, didn’t mean to!
Yesterday he was very gung-ho about going to this adorable bistro we love while in my sister’s town, I was sure that he was going to do it! But alas he just wanted a nice dinner with me (damn haha!), so I’m hoping to get the ring when we go back home this weekend!

Other than the general gut feeling I’ve had lately, some clues I’ve had are…
He has hired a photographer to take pictures of us during our anniversary trip next weekend. He also booked a massage and manicure for me.
My best friend told me it’s going to happen soon. Her fiance is my BF’s best friend.
He has been more vocal than usual about his feelings toward me. He’s usually pretty vocal, but it’s been a little more frequent in the last couple weeks.
He has made little comments that I’ve tried to brush off. For example, he said that he’s going to make me very happy soon.
We have a few framed photo collages and he’s been dragging his feet and hasn’t hung them yet. The other day he said he’s waiting for the “right” photo to put in one of them. But, that could just mean he wants to get some nice couples photos taken.
I have no idea if I’m just reading too much into it, but I’ve got my fingers crossed. Either way, we’re going to have an epic anniversary trip.

@emmrr3: I catch clues all the time, but I am notorious for reading into things way too much. Things I thought were clues or “slip ups” around Christmas last year, were not slip ups at all but were just comments he made because he genuinely was having a dense moment.
But I love to indulge in my jumps-to-conclusions so here we go:
I’ve been home from work sick for three days. He came home from work and immediately looked around like he was looking for something but didn’t want me to see him. Almost like he was worried I was home all day without supervision. My mind immediately jumped to “Is there a ring in the house that he’s worried about me finding?”
He’s also been very mushy lately. He’s been all cuddly and has these really long moments of what I suspect is deep thought before he says something really sweet. Might be just because I’m sick and he says I’m cute when I don’t feel good.
My mom had come to spend the day with me while I was sick. (she’s in from out of state for a few weeks visiting family) and he acted very fake surprised that she was here. He’s a terrible liar. She’s an excellent liar so I’m not sure if she’s here just for a visit or if its because of a master plan.
I have a small shred of hope for Sunday, which is when we’ll have a small family get together so we can all spend some time together. But…something tells me its not coming then either.

@RenoSweeney24: Sounds very promising!
@tiff-tiff-tiff: Awww, again, sounds very promising 🙂
@MissNanaMama: That sounds lovely, fingers crossed. If it’s not this time, I’msure you’ll have a lovely weekend anyway. Yay for Friday!!
@cristieg: EEEEK, sounds exciting! Have a great trip!
@MissRuthie: Aw, I jump to conclusions and certainly did a few months ago but now he’s bringing up marriage and weddings 🙂 I’m enjoying the hints. The other day he made a joke about how when we live together we would have a special code for when either of the mother in laws approach the house… to his mother. Who blinked and then said “what’s wrong with mother in laws”…lol

I’m adding another one… today he was fumbling to reach my left hand only to sing Rihanna’s song “shine bright like a diamond” I don’t know what the song is about but i’ll take it as a clue!! 😀

@emmrr3: Oh, what hints did I discover. 😀 The other night, my SO and I were looking at things on his computer, some of which involved him having to retrieve emails. I glanced at his inbox (I shouldn’t have!!!!!) and saw an email from a jeweler who makes one of the e-rings I emailed him a link to months ago!!!! And also, when I recently brought up which stones I like, he said he had been researching diamonds and moissanites, and was quite knowledgeable! He knows more than I do about diamonds now (enough to convince me that they are not for me). Lukcily he thinks moissanite is cool!
