I just posted on a “fed up with waiting” thread how, well, fed up with waiting I am was today… and then I talked with my SO and am feeling pretty silly!
He said tonight he talked with his best friend who is thinking of proposing to his gf (who he’s been dating for 9 months, us for 6+ years) soon but was having difficulties with the ring. My SO told me he gave him relationship advice and advice about rings and how silly (no offense y’all) the diamond ideal is – we’ve talked about an Engagement Ring from our local gem mining and cutting place which would cost $70-150. I then asked if he talked about us at all and my SO sheepishly said “I don’t know” and I kept teasing him and asked “I don’t know because you didn’t or I don’t know because you did?” and he said he did talk about us all sheepish and cute!
THEN… I found out that he drove home the long way home which goes past our gem mining/cutting place!! He also stayed an extra night so he left my house after I left for work. Maybe he found my stash of uncut gems and/or brought his and dropped something off to be cut (he’s done that before). Now, I don’t know for sure, but he has been feeling pretty perky after finding out how much he’s getting back from taxes… maybe proposing soon? Or at least within our timeline?
I don’t want to think for sure that he is having something cut, but I do like to know he’s thinking more about it and giving his friend advice about engagement and E-rings! What do y’all think?!

@Tunacupcakes: Haha, I’ve been the opposite of quiet about it! But it’s been a good not quiet (according to Mr. Hedgie and my SO) as I talk mostly about being (as opposed to getting) married/engaged, buying a house, getting a puppy, and just wanting to end LDR already! I don’t think I’ve ever talked about the actual proposal and haven’t talked about the e-ring for 2-3 months. I have talked about when I want to get married, but that hasn’t been for a while. I also don’t talk about anything during the week when we Skype, this is all during the weekends when we’re in person.
Haha, I just remembered I was sick recently and on some serious drugs and said to him on Skype “Let’s just go elope in the Caribbean!!” He said in the sweetest voice that he thinks my parents would be sad not to have a big wedding for me!
@all: Thank you for your encouragement! Sometimes I wonder if it’s all in my head! I know if they weren’t legit signs you would tell me. He has been extra evasive lately about future talk but in a really cute way like he is planning something. He’s also the type of person that didn’t know you were supposed to talk about marriage before getting engaged. He just thought the guy surprised the girl by proposing one day without ever talking about it!
