Ok bees, it is so funny how a few drinks can get him talkin…. lmao… Friday night we went out had a nice dinner and some drinks then came home and drank some more just the two of us and got into the conversation of the engagement and he spilled… well he really didnt give me a written in stone timeline he basically gave me a fake story, that it wont be till August or past August sometime and I did not like that so I told him and he is like” I am so just feeding you a bunch of crap I am not telling you when it will be but it will be before August, hey it could be next week.” He also said he isnt getting me no $1000 ring which I want he says I deserve better then that, I could care less it isnt the ring I care about, but he wants that for me.We also talked about how he is kinda scared to talk to my dad, my dad absolutly loves him so there should be no reason and I asked him just because he is scared to talk about it with my dad am I gonna have to wait forever till you do finally get where you want to be with my dad to get engaged? He said no, so now I know where this stands and how much info I will get out of him. But it was a great talk.

I had a conversation similar to this…I didn’t realize the ‘dad’ thing was such a big deal to him. He told me one day that he didn’t know what to say or how to bring up the subject and we talked about things he could say and how to make it easier and then next week he asked me to invite my parents up for lunch, and when they were at our house he took dad aside and talked to him (SO told me later that’s why he wanted them to come up).
I wouldn’t be surprised if he figures out soon how to bring it up to your dad if you had this conversation…maybe he just needed to let you know how he was feeling and since you told him everything would be alright, he might feel confident now to talk to your dad. It’s probably a hard thing to do…I’m glad we ladies don’t have to!

@soyjoy222: Ya you’re right he told me, that other than proposing this is the second hardest thing for a guy to do… So I hope it happens soon, since we are moving in together in 2 weeks, well we have already been living together at my place but now we are going to have my parents over soon for dinner and going to be seeing them more.. so he will have more of a chance to talk to him alone.
