- Wedding: October 2014
I lurked around the “waiting” board the past few months, which must have been good luck because my boyfriend of 3 years proposed last Thursday!
Back story – We have been dating for 3 years, and lived together for about 2 1/2. I knew about a year ago that I was ready to be engaged, but, being the very cautious person he is, needed more time. I tried every tactic, from explaining to him why I wanted to be engaged, to thrying to “shut it up” for months at a time. One Saturday (about 1 month ago) out of the blue, he asked if I wanted to go browse at rings. Of course I said yes, and we went so I could give him ideas of what styles I like. After we left, he didn’t say a word about rings/proposals, so I just assumed he was trying to save up money before purchasing. (We’ve been trying to get out of debt, and he wanted to pay cash when he bought the ring.)
Fast Forward to last Thurday – I call him when I’m on my way home, and he tells me he’s picked up dinner, and asks when I’ll be home. I tell him that I’m almost there and he says “I GOTTA GO” and hangs up the phone. I’m thinking, “What is his deal?” lol. I go to walk in the front door and it’s locked… I unlock the door and he is down on one knee in our foyer.
I looked at him like (Okay, are you serious!?). He says “You know I’m horrible at keeping secrets” and pulls out the ring! After looking in shock for about 2 mintues, he says “I need an amswer, baby”, lol. Of course I said yes.
I am SO Happy!
