So here’s my deal~
I’v been with my boyfriend and his son for 3 years now & we’ve discussed marriage here and there along the way….. Up until about 6 months ago I kind of always just brushed it off, and kept dreaming about the idea. THEN about 6 months ago boyfriend kept bringing up how we need to “go get that ring” or “go ring shopping” yada yada, I’d always smile and say “lets do it” we never made a plan to go ring shopping but being a female and having the vision of getting married someday I’d scope out rings online….magazines…..women’s fingers……..and then I stumbled across “the one”. The ONE I tell you, exactly what I want. SOooooooooo I print out the picture with price and all supporting info, folded it up all cute like a school grader and wrote clever little love notes all over it, gave it to him, and he said “that’s the one hu?” We went and purchased it a few days later with his 8 year old son, nothing romantic about this story, he was hungry, board, and not interested at all. After that we stopped to have dinner with some friends and boyfriend was showing the ring off, big smiles and all. This brings me to my ‘deal’:
He says I need to forget how beautiful the ring is before he gives it to me! (Never will happen) Which is ok…I guess. He says he still wants to inform my dad and do it at the right moment. Have any other brides gone threw this? Is it normal to pick out a ring together? Will I be surprised when he gives it to me? How long did your guy wait? Should I not mention marriage……………or ANYTHING wedding related? Is that even possible???
Any insight is appreciated
