- Wedding: July 2013
So today is actually my anniversary with my SO; we celebrated during this busy january time by watching rom coms and laughin our butts off alot, (Along Came Polly and Wedding Crashers- my picks!)
Anyways I have some thoughts about some recent developments in my relationship and I would love to have some input from you ladies. The relationship is good, I have (partially) followed Mr. Bee’s plan and have thrown myself into working out nearly 4/7 times a week. This has equalled me being happier, alot less stressed, 9 pounds of weight loss and also inspired SO to lose weight (we even went to the gym together on Saturday).
Im waiting (obviously) and a month I ago I think we had a discussion about when he would propose and he sort of let it slip that it would be this year (ahhhh Freudian Slip! gotta love em!) And obviously I was excited. I’ll be frank, I didnt expect it this soon (we are students, and currently working on saving up the goods for our life together).I was kinda expecting next year actually. Our wedding date will probably be the same- but this means a longer engagment- hmmm something I also wasnt expecting but, not really that big I deal I suppose (for me anyways, might be different for family tho…)
Well I decided to try and do the V-day challenge- and failed within a week. I have this uncanny ability to make a joke about anything I can possibly think of and I made a wedding joke that SO then reacted to by saying “I cant WAIT to see your face when I do it” Since then its been hint dropping, red herrings, and general teasing. Its driving me bananas!
Its sweet, and to be truthful we are the kind of couple that likes to tease each other alot and make fun of each other- so I know its in all kindness…but Im an inquistive person- I find myself trying to guess when he’s going to do it and it makes the waiting even more annoying. I understand this is a total non-issue but I thought I would ask, does anybody’s SO actually tease them about the proposal and bait them with it? Does it drive you as nuts as it does me?
The other concern I have is financial- since I expected the proposal to be later, Im kinda shocked that he wants to do it this year financially. Im also kinda worried that he might be attempted to give me something which I really want, but he financially shouldnt be doing. Im very pragmatic and he is too, but I think he knows how much I want this and I cant help but feel a bit guilty about it. I know I shouldnt worry because I trust his decision making- but I also know how much the guy loves me. I have however, insisted that he not spend an exorbitant amount on a ring (and also showed him sites and what I like). We are in a very open and frank relationship, so we have discussed marriage often, and with good results. I have also discussed the financial issue with him but he insisted that he is in good standing. I love the guy to death ladies, and I have to say Im a worry wort. But I just want to make sure that Im not overstepping by wanting him to be sure that he is finanicially capable of getting the ring. I hope Im not nuts….
Anyways I know this isnt as interesting as the usual posts but I hope I can get some good input from all of you! You can also share some funny SO stories if you like- Yes, Im actually encouraging you to threadjack ladies 😛 Cus I roll like that.
