- Wedding: December 2014
I’m feeling a bit upset at the moment because I think I’ve offended SO. It started a few days ago when my mum found out he has my ring, and kept asking me when he is giving it to me (I don’t know as it’s a surprise and I’m happy it is).
Then, a friend rang me to say she was doing an assignment on marriage and if she could interview me, and one of her questions was “How does it feel planning a wedding without a ring? Are you ever concerned about committment issues since your date is a year away with no ring?”
I have been fine with waiting in all honesty. I mean of course I’d love to be engaged but I’m excited that he is being thoughtful and wants to do this so romantically. Anyways, SO rang me not long after the phone call from my friend and heard something was up and asked me, so I told him about her questions and that I’m not at all upset with him, just more shocked by her questions and not sure how to feel or respond to them.
He told me not to worry about that it is happening very very soon but that I need to be patient. I feel that I have been patient (I never hint about engagement or discuss about my engagements) but now I’ve brought this up he sounded unhappy that what my friend said upset me. I got a text from him later telling me to cheer up and trust him.
Maybe I’m just overthinking, but I feel silly now and wish I hadn’t have told him. Does anyone have any advice or know what I could do better about this?
