- Wedding: November 2013
So my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I met online 3 years ago next week. We talked online/on the phone for a few months, before we met face-to-face for the first time, and the rest is history. We’ve been talking about engagement here and there for about 9 months now. I, of course, have been on pins and needles waiting. He said in August or so that the plan was by the end of the year….but nothing has happened:/ So a couple weeks before Thanksgiving, he came for a visit, and he brought up the idea that we might get Christmas gifts for our families as a couple this year. I was like….oh really? He said the idea was to be engaged by then. I’m, of course, smiling like a goon. He was kinda irritated at himself for letting anything on (but if there’s anything that you should know about him is that he can’t keep a surprise for his life bahaha).
So the other night (and tonight) he said that he pictures the whole scenario in his head: where he wants to take me, what he wants to say all the time because he doesn’t want to screw it up. Not to mention he sounded super nervous when he realized that I will be coming to see him next weekend. The plan has always been that he would propose sans ring, and that we would go pick it out at a local jeweler’s together afterwards, but tonight he was all despairing that he wasn’t going to have a ring when he asked me. Which I don’t really care–it’s about me and him, not the diamond being THERE when it happens (though it will be oh so nice when it is on my finger! :D). But the point is, I guess, that I am 99.9999% sure that it is going to happen next weekend. I will be going to his family’s for an extended weekend to celebrate Christmas. There is plenty opportunity for us to go and find the ring prior….unless he is planning on asking.
He keeps on dropping hints….and though I vowed to not think about it this week unless I was in bed, ready to go to sleep….I can’t help it. I am 99.99999% sure that it is going to happen next weekend. Hence, the reason why I am going absolutely freaking cray cray right now!!!!! I have finals tests tomorrow, and I cannot for the life of me concentrate. Gah, this is so exciting!!!! What do you ladies think? AM I overthinking this? Did your man do anything like this, and then not pop the question? Help!!!
