Hi there! I guess I might as well join this board ๐Ÿ™‚ I would always read these boards and couldn’t wait to post for the first time!

Soooo i have been with my SO for 1.5 years now and we’ve talked a lot about getting engaged at some point before October of this year. I don’t know why he would leave his phone next to me when going to the bathroom about 2 weeks ago, but he did and I saw a text come through from a family friend of his who is a jeweler. In the text, he thanked him for coming by and looking at “diamonds” and told him to give him a call to get the final balance on “the ring.”ย 

I keep trying to not get too excited about this and I”m like… um… maybe he is referring to another ring, but what else can it be? I just have NO idea when he is planning on doing it. Or if the ring is even ready at this point. I feel like he would talk to my dad to get his blessing but he hasn’t done that yet, so who knows! I just hope it happens soon because I seriously CAN’T WAIT.ย 

ย 

How long do you think it would take from when he picks up the ring until he pops the question? THANKS!!!!

milabeehappy: dizzydoo: not tonight ladies ๐Ÿ™  so he took me out to a nice Italian dinner and I thought he would propose by dessert.  Then we took a nice walk along the beach and I thought for sure this is it.   He even had a nice spot picked out where it was quiet and we could watch the water, but nothing.   I guess I was wrong again.   All and all it was a nice evening,  and very romantic,  so I’m happy about that.

cyntharella:  aww man! Sounds like a romantic evening though! How you do ladies keep your composure when your for sure it’s going to happen and then it doesn’t. I feel like I go crazy after the event happens because you thought this is it then you realize it’s not. I end up picking a fight a couple days later. Its not healthy at all I know but I just go crazy and over analyze everything. I mean it’s been over 7 years and now I’m just tweedling my thumbs lol

Background story.. I’ve been itching to move out for the past 3 years now but I still live at home with my parents and due to religious reseaons I cannot move out with my SO so I’m seriously counting the days of when he can ask me so I can finally start planning and see a plan for the future wedding. I can’t live with him until after marriage or tops a month or two before the wedding. Plus I live in the silicon valley where 1 income can’t really get you your own apartment. So I just feel stuck and just waiting.

justkeepswimming:  Oh man it’s so hard to keep my composure!  My mood changed so much last night!  I got sad and quiet after dinner and then the moment he said we’re going somewhere else I got so happy again.  It’s kind of funny when I think about it now.  I got sad again at the end of the night, and I had to remind myself that he still put together a nice romantic evening and I can’t fault him for that.  I get you though it’s so so hard to not let this get to me.  I keep thinking about how I’ll be 36 next month, so at best we’ll be married when I’m 37 and that only gives me a few years before I’m 40 (eek)!  I guess we just have to be strong, focus on the positive things he’s doing, and use the bee to vent!  I hope it happens soon for us both!  Your situation sounds so much more difficult than mine.  I would be dying to get out of my parents house.  And I hear ya on the rent situation, I’ve lived in San Jose before and I currently live in San Diego.  There’s no way I could get a place by myself.  Keep your chin up though, he loves you and he’ll ask soon!

Bees, I just found a ring box. I didn’t open it (…yet…), but I’m pretty sure waiting just got 50 times harder. My friends are split between “preserve some surprise!” and “dude, just open it and send pictures asap.” Sigh. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go die of impatience (and, oddly, nervousness) now.

laisa:  how exciting!!! I say don’t open it so you can be surprised when he actually proposes ๐Ÿ™‚ I know my guy has his already.. I know I know I’m a bad snoop but I have no idea where he is hiding it and I actually tried for like 2 seconds to find it in his room but I stopped myself and said no don’t do it lol you know it’s there and it will just be worse if you know where it is and what it looks like. Lol that’s just my two cents.

icelady:  how exciting!   I can’t wait to hear how it went and let us know what ring you decide on.

laisa:  aw man,  how do you keep yourself from looking.   I saw don’t look though it’ll be so much nicer to let your SO see your reaction to the ring.

We are celebrating our six year anniversary tomorrow, so I’m heading out to get a mani-pedi. Honestly I’ve grown less optimistic anything will happen this weekend, as SO has been busy with work and coming home late, so we haven’t talked much. But I figure, just in case. 

I’m also leaving for a business trip to San Diego early Sunday… So honestly I would be going for the mani-pedi anyway! ๐Ÿ˜œ
