So, I’m about to burst at the seams here with thinking I may have caught on to a possible proposal??? I feel I cannot talk to anyone about this because I want to try to be surprised as much as I can be at this point and not ask any questions to people who may know its coming.
A short backstory: I am 27 years old and met my boyfriend in high school and we were always friends. We didn’t start dating until college and then for another year post college and then actually broke up after that for 3 full years when I moved away. But, upon moving back, we found love in each other again and got back together a year ago and now recently moved in together about 2 months ago. I was thrilled about taking the step of living together and genuinely didn’t think a proposal would be in question for at least another year and had that totally settled in my mind and hadn’t thought about it much at all. However, this month, my best friend got married and my close cousin got married and it just seems more and more my Facebook went from photos of partying to photos of someones engagement ring, wedding day, baby, etc. So in the past month I realized I actually was ready now and I really wanted this and officially caught the bug!! It’s a great feeling to realize this is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. We don’t talk about getting married much, but there has been acouple casual mentions, ya know, like just talking about our futures as if theres no doubt each other are in it and he’s said things like youre the only girl I want to be with, etc etc. Soooo, here comes some possible hints that he too has made the realization lately. Orrr is this all in my head because I am now ready? Helpppp 🙂
Sign number 1: My sister (who also attended my BFF’s wedding) casually asks me the day after the wedding about rings and what I would like. ( NOTE: we were obviously on wedding topics due to my bffs wedding) and says youd say yes if he proposed, right? BUT then, I see on her phone that he texted her earlier in the day ( I did not open it). Now, this is not totally uncommon for them to be texting, but not an everyday ordinary thing. What are they talking about? Hmmm….and then, this is a big one…a friend of a friend recently got engaged with a yellow diamond and I mentioned it to my boyfriend about how it was a pretty ring. My sister actually asks me in our “casual” conversation, Doesnt someone have a yellow ring you liked or something you mentioned to me? and I know point blank, I never ever mentioned that yellow ring to her or anyone other than him really considering this is a friend of a friend and not my friend or anyone my sister knows. So, how did she know about this yellow diamond? HMMMMM, was he asking advice to her on a yellow one because I said I liked hers?
Sign Number 2: I am obsessed with Halloween/Fall/October, he has said casually before that a October wedding would be great in his eyes if we were to get married since I love it so much and he likes it too. so, I’m thinking okay, a year engagement seems pretty standard, maybe he’d ask me now in my favorite time of year to then get married a year from now also in my favorite time of year?
Sign Number 3: Years ago, my BFF and I wrote each other these emails with what we would want in a ring so that years later when it happened, we wouldnt have to ask each other and possibly ruin the surprise, we’d already have the information. So, when she got engaged last year, (she lives in CA now) her now husband told me to make sure the ring was good because he knew about the email and with his help, I flew out to surprise her the next day to be able to celebrate in person their engagement! What fun! So, later this month, I am hosting a halloween party where my family and close friends will be there. I of course invited my BFF, but knew she wouldnt make a trip across the country for a halloween party esp considering she just got married and was off work for her honeymoon recently. But, she tells me the other day she is actually coming! Hmmmm, flying across country for just a Halloween party??? Hmmm or did he consult you about the ring emails and tell you he’s doing it that night so you’re doing what I did and flying in to celebrate?HMMMMM
Sign Number 4: He has been SUPER lovey dovey lately. Holding me extra tight at night, saying nice things, just being all in all extra wonderful. He also mentions the halloween party with excitement and I was like “geez you are just as excited for halloween this year as me!”
Soooo ladies. Whats the deal? Possibility? In my head? Its already to the point where I think I’d be disappointed if he didnt. I know that doesnt mean its not coming, just that I’d have to wait longer!!! And right now, waiting two weeks for this possibly to happen is endless!!
