UPDATE: My SO got a treasury job! I am absolutely thrilled. He has been unemployed for about 2 months. This is excellent news for him and for us.
I can’t help but still be a bit bummed. My SO wanted to propose after he had a job locked in. He basically didn’t want to purchase a ring without knowing if he would be having any income. Now he knows he will be getting paid. He wasn’t so worried about the whole settling into a new city aspect, as long as he had a job.
I am a bummed that he will not be asking me during Spring Recess. I have a 1 week vacation from my Master’s studies this week. I am just so upset that he hasn’t talked to my parents yet! They were in Cancun on a trip and they don’t get back until tonight. There is no way that my SO has asked them, gotten the ring, and will propose during this 1 week break. A HUGE thing for me is that I will get to enjoy my engagement and we agreed that Spring Break would be an amazing time. One week would allow us to celebrate, unwind, and be with family and friends. He was going to propose to me during this vacation but then last minute decided to wait until he has a job. He has always wanted to let my parents know of the proposal before getting on one knee.
Frustrated, but blessed because he could be unemployed still..
