Well not entirely but I will give you the story….
So we have had the ring since September. Some of you will remember that he keeps it on the bookshelf and I have asked him to hide it and he doesn’t. I figured he was waiting till Christmas because I had always told him I wanted a Christmas proposal. Anyway he was acting like that was what he was waiting for even when I mentioned christmas proposal he wouldn’t give me the don’t get your hopes up crap or anything.
So anyway, Christmas Eve arrives and I know he hadn’t talked to my parents yet which made me know that he wasn’t going to do it on Christmas. So I asked him if I was going to be dissapointed on Christmas. He immidiatly knew what I was talking about and gave me a wierd look. So I was like I would just rather know so that I can get it out of my head. He said that he was NOT planning on doing it at Christmas and that he was planning on doing it some other time.
Ok, so now I am upset and he was apologizing. Which is making this whole thing suck. But the other thing is we have already been planning the wedding together and have a tentative date set for Sept 2010. I don’t know how long he is planning on waiting because I refuse to book the venue without a ring on my finger.
Anyway, I told him my family all thinks that you are going to propose to me at Xmas so you better talk to them about the plans so that everyone is not upset.He told me that he was already planning on talking to them that afternoon.
So, the afternoon comes around and I go upstairs to take a shower and he asked for my hand in marriage. But of course my parents forget to ask him when he is going to propose. They did say yes though and all parties involved were excited.. Apparently my other half was very very nervous. Which is pretty cute.
I told him later that I was very happy that he talked to my parents and he told me he was so incredibly excited and can’t wait to get married. He said that him not proposing was not because of not wanting to get married but because he wanted to make it perfect. He literally said he was excited to get married.
So although, I am very sad about not having my dream proposal when I wanted it. I am happy it is not because of cold feet.
I guess my question would also be … If he knew I wanted to have a christmas proposal why didn’t he do it then? Wouldn’t you want to try and make the fantasy come alive? I guess that is the part that I am most mad about.
I did wind up saying later that the important part is that he is planning something great and I shouldn’t worry about when it is.
So….. no xmas engagment for me!
