Hi bees! I am excited to write my first post, because I think I may officially be a waiting bee. Let me tell you the story.
Last weekend my parents and I went to the pumpkin patch while my boyfriend was working. He called to say he got off right as we were leaving, so we all decided to meet for lunch. After we had ordered, my dad went out to smoke. He was already outside when my boyfriend leaned over to say he was going with him. My mom asked if he was alright. My boyfriend quit smoking in June, but occassionally uses a vape. I said he was going to do that and at the time figured he was.
The next day I stopped by my parents’ house to pick something up that my mom had mentioned the day before. My dad was at work and I stayed to talk for a little while. She asked some questions about my relationship. I;ve been with my boyfriend for almost a year, but since I moved out of the house they haven’t had as much of a chance to get to know him as my family is used to. During this questioning she said my dad said he’s a good guy. Then she asked if we’ve talked about when we’d want to get engaged. That made me wonder if he went outside the day before to get my dad alone and ask for his blessing to marry me.
This weekend my boyfriend had a mysterious meeting to go to in the middle of the day that was not work related. We’re good about respecting each other’s schedule, so I said “no problem, my mom asked to meet up.” She came over to help me with some home decor shopping. We spent about two hours together. During this time she mentioned Christmas shopping with my dad. I asked when they got to go shopping together, because his schedule is not a normal 9-5 weekday one. She said that morning. So my dad was in my town that morning. Then she said we’d only go to one more store, becuase my dad would be done around 3. I didn’t ask what he’d be done with, but wondered if he was still in my town. Right after 3 my boyfriend texted to tell me he was heading home.
I have no evidence that these dots connect, but they seem to. My boyfriend and dad had a few mintues alone last weekend. My dad told my mom that my boyfriend is a good guy. My mom asked about an engagement. This weekend my boyfirend has to go meet with someone. My dad is in my town that day. They both are done with whatever they were doing around the same time. What do you think?
