He completely surprised me on Friday- we are long distance, so I wasn’t even expecting to see him this weekend! The proposal was absolutely perfect and so fitting for our relationship. It is interesting for me to reflect back on my anxiety during the “waiting” time- it turns out that by the time I started worrying about it, he had already talked to my parents! It was so interesting to hear about the “waiting” process from his perspective. I was perceiving his not talking at all about rings, engagement, etc. to be a lack of interest, and nothing could have been further from the truth. He had even already done a ton of pre-planning for the wedding!
Within an hour of the proposal, we were meeting with my parents talking about wedding plans. At that point I got another surprise- the news that we need to book our desired location by Monday and that we needed to make a list of date preferences immediately! So we launched straight into wedding planning mode at 100 mph.
So good luck to everyone still waiting! If you are confident that your SO is trustworthy, believe him when he tells you to relax about this whole process!
