This is something that I’ve been pondering in the back of my brain for a while now, and I want to see if I’m the only one, or if there are other Waiting Bees out there like me.
SO and I will be getting engaged soon. He is adamant that he wants it to be a surprise, and he wants to do it on his terms. And I’m okay with that.
We have several big trips coming up that would afford ideal proposal opportunities (Golden Gate Bridge at Sunset anyone?) At the risk of sounding like a terrible horrible person, there’s this nagging little voice in the back of my head that wonders if HIS idea of the “perfect” proposal and MY idea are way off.
Before you throw rotten tomatoes at me, let me see if I can clarify. I love my SO with all my heart – he is the man that I want to spend the rest of my life with. He could give me a ring pop after I get out of the shower and I’d be happy. So let’s try to refrain from making me into a terrible person – I’m not.
Here’s the connundrum. Every time we talk about it, he builds it up further and further, and I’m just wondering what happens if when he finally DOES propose, it doesn’t live up to the anticipations he’s created for it.
Does that make sense? I feel like a horrible Bee…does anyone else worry about that?
