Yesterday, my boyfriend and I went to Sam’s club to pick up some dog food/bones for our pups. When we went to check out there were only three registers open and the lines were very long. We picked a line, but a man came over and directed us to the jewelry register since we only had a couple of items. The register is surrounded by engagements rings 😉 I made a joke like “I think the universe is trying to tell you something” *wink wink, nudge nudge* He smiled and payed for our items. Then when it came time to leave, they asked for our receipt. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a receipt, but it was the wrong one. He checked his other pockets, but they were empty. He started to look in his wallet when I noticed that the receipt was sticking out of the first pocket he had checked. So, I pulled it out and handed it to the man, who then turned to my boyfriend smiling and said, “You see? She knows you better than you know yourself – that’s true love”. After the register surrounded by engagement rings, it couldn’t have been more perfect.
What are your ‘signs’ stories?

@lilybee: If I could only be so lucky for the universe to throw us in front of a jewelery counter! *sigh* But, I’m in almost the same boat as far as signs go, ours are just a little more subtle: we went to some friends’ wedding over the weekend, so that’s just ripe w/ “hint-hint”; while we were there, some of our other friends playfully asked him when he was next (he laughed it off w/o answering, grrr) AND my “un-hubby”‘s younger brother is very soon about to ask him to be his best man at HIS wedding. (I’m in the know b/c I gab all the time w/ the bro’s fiancee)
Men really do need to be hit over the head sometimes, b/c they just don’t get it. But on the flipside, when we do that again and again b/c they’re JUST.NOT.GETTING.IT. we’re called nags! What’s a gal to do? I guess that’s what the Waiting Bee Hive is for, supporting one another, and stickin’ together! Good luck while you wait 🙂

Oh boy. Not only did we both see way too many engagement advertisements, but everywhere we went at the beginning people would randomly walk up to us and comment how in love we were and gave unsolicited marriage advice. And I mean, this happened several times. We knew it was coming.

We always joke because my facebook page has ads for engagement rings, and his facebook page gives him singles ads!

One really weird thing that keeps happening with us, and just in the past few weeks, is having the combination of our names show up everywhere. Does that even make sense? For instance, we rented a movie where the two main characters had our names, we saw some marriage certificates on display at a boutique, and the printed example used both of our names, and most recently, our satellite radio played two songs back to back whose titles were, you guessed it, his name for the first one, then mine for the second song. Our names are common enough, but in combination . . . I keep seeing them as signs more than happy coincidences.
I keep getting the engagement ads on my computer too, even after I clear all my cookies and browsing history! And my boyfriend doesn’t see them as signs of anything except that I’ve been looking at rings online without him . . . which he then teases me about. He should know better; I have absolutely NO sense of humor where engagements/weddings are concerned.
. . . And now “Signs” by the Five Man Electrical Band is in my head. Aces!

Oh there was this man at the street we had lunch who when we passed was like: “Oh look at this cute couple! Are they married I hope they’re married”
To appease him SO was just like “Yes!” then turn to me and said we need to get wedding bands next time we pass here.

@lilybee: All his friends that have been together for a shorter amount of time than us are getting married or have been married for a few months, every single movie we watch has a proposal in it, our parents have been asking WHEN, his mom took me shopping to look at wedding stuff, gosh. I’m so impatient.
Oh and two nights ago at IHOP a random old man walked up to us and told me I was beautiful. Then he shook my boyfriends hand and asked who he was. He was like “her boyfriend”. and he was like well sir, you look like you have a good one. when you know, don’t let her go!”
