- Wedding: September 2011
One of my co-workers has been planning on proposing to his girlfriend for quite some time now. They live together with her two little girls and I know they’ve been talking marriage for the last six months or year or so. I’m really the only girl in my department and him and I get along well, so sometimes he’ll ask me for advice about rings and proposals and such, and he finally got the ring a few weeks ago! Ever since then I basically bug him every day asking if he has done it yet, haha. He’s decided that it will be over V-Day weekend since they’re taking a trip together.
I’m totally annoying every step of the way because I constantly bug him about it and tell him how crazy he is probably driving her because she’s wondering at every holiday and such if it’s coming. He said it’s okay because he told her to go ahead and start planning even though they’re not engaged yet, and I was like, “You dummy, that’s even worse! Now she knows you have the ring and you want her to start planning but she’s still going nuts wondering when she can actually tell people and have it be official! She probably suspects you’ll do it on vacay and is fighting her own head trying to not get excited in case it doesn’t happen!”
Maybe I’m projecting a bit, but he’s said I’m probably right and she is a lot like how I was before getting engaged lol. I like to think that most of the waiting bees would probably appreciate having someone bug their SO for them and make them aware of how nuts they’re making them without having to actually nag them about it yourself, right? Haha.
