For the past 3 days, I’ve been having strange dreams of proposals/engagements. They are never quite right, and are often awkward/tense or a let-down in some way… but then like in last night’s, even though I hated the ring (it was this tiny bauble thing, yellow gold which I don’t want, with a tiny little ball of gold with a diamond fleck in it, like a regular day-to-day accent ring from clare’s jewelry) I lost it somehow and ended up heartbroken and desperately searching for it!
After a not-so great conversation with my SO online on Monday or Tuesday about rings, I have been good and not brought it up again, but I guess all my anxiety and excitement is coming out in my dreams. We are leaving for Yosemite tomorrow morning at 4 am and even though after all that’s gone on this week I don’t expect a proposal at all, part of me of course still hopes there will be one. And, not to mention – my best friend in the whole world (recently married 1 year ago, and knows SO really well) is basically almost positive that he actually IS proposing to me this weekend, just because of whatever the ‘signs’ are. She doesn’t say that she knows anything, so she could be totally wrong, but she isn’t one to get me excited without really having good intentions. So who knows? At this point I’m no longer expecting it any time soon, so if it does happen it really will be a big surprise!
Anyone else having nightly dreams about all this? If so, do you just keep it to yourself?

Ahhhh engagment dreams, they are so haunting. I had one only which is surprising since I think about it 24/7. My ring in the dream was gaudy and TOTALLY not my taste at all. I wish I could just have a nice dream about it and wake up satisfied lol. I hope your trip goes well and the dreams stop :/ Maybe they’re a sign that something actually is going to happen?

I think it’s going to happen for me any day now, and I CAN’T STOP dreaming about it! It’s like, hurry up and happen just so the crazy dreams will stop, haha! I can’t imagine how bad it will be when we’re having a wedding, shesh.

I haven’t been sleeping well either. I keep dreaming about rings and weddings and Bullfrogs (don’t ask). I had a recent dream that i was on a roadtrip in the middle of no where with my future bridesmaid and i had a groupon to get my hair done somehwhere but i couldn’t find it and it was this big hoopla. I think i have been dreaming of engagement lately too but thankfully i don’t remember them.

I have engagement/wedding dreams fairly often. I don’t feel the need to say anything to my SO though, because my opinions/desires/wishes, etc., are very well known! I am of the school of thought that dreams are only meant to relieve stress, and perhaps because this waiting game is currently near the top of my list of what is stressing me out, I am dreaming about it.

I just spent most of this morning dreaming about ring shopping and trying on different styles. I’ve officially consented to go with my besty to try on rings. (She says she wants to see what looks good on my hands)

@sleepingbeauty88: Oooh that’s so exciting! I went alone to a tiny store near my work and tried on a few, but wanna do this big ring store thing. I just don’t know if it’s a good idea or a bad idea in case I get even MORE obsessed and crazy! Daydreaming takes up a huge portion of my day already… plus now the nighttime dreams about engagements/weddings/rings. I wanna hear all about your trip to the store though!
