annelise210516 : We had previously talked about marriage and were both on board with it. The proposal was a complete surprise for me AT THIS TIME though. I expected it later on, but was very happy nonetheless. That exact thought has crossed my mind, that maybe he didn’t completely think it through before proposing.
janvier : That’s what I don’t understand. I only told him I wanted to tell my mom in person because I wouldn’t like telling her by phone call, and she lives 3 hours away from us.
nonablu : Maybe that’s it. I want him to push through but he seems to not have grasped what this really means. Thank you.
YouBeBoyAnd : We are from the same culture, ethnicities and I get along great with his parents. I HAVE asked him about this many times in the past week, but he has only given me the reasons I have stated above, which aren’t very satisfying.

Maybe he’s suddenly nervous. Both Fiance and I got last minute nerves just before telling people. But we pushed through it and just did it, really low key – I had coffee with my mum, he was helping his brother move house with his parents haha. Everyone was happy for us so not sure where the jitters came from, just out of the blue. So maybe it’s that?

newnath : this is strange and you are right to feel weird about it.. hopefully by now he’s told his parents.. if not, let him know how this is making you feel uneasy

Well I think it very odd. ..” we talked about it again and he ..mentioned that we don’t have to rush into telling them”
“ Rush into ” What a strange way to put it . It’s already a fait accompli, not a decision to be put off and thought about . I’d be anxious too and worry that was he was regretting or at least embarrassed about it for some reason.
I would have already told my own parents though ,I’d have called or or Skyped or something . What’s so traditional about ‘in person’ if you dont live close?

Hey! Sorry I waited so long to update. Turns out it was nerves. We told his parents soon after this post and my mom too. All his friends and mine know too. Thank you!
