Okay so I’m new to “posting” here, but for the past few months I’ve been a regular.. ehhrr, I guess you’d call me a “creeper”.. I’ve been creeping on weddingbee for a while now! I just can’t get weddings off of my mind!
I need help. Like, seriously. I’m driving myself crazy over obsessing about whether or not my boyfriend of 6 years is going to propose.
Here’s the story: We have been talking for what seems like forever about getting married, how many kids we’ll have, when we want to get married, etc, etc. You get it. Anyway, the other day I got a comment from a random younger girl that said “Guess who I saw buying a ring?!” And when I asked who, to my surprise she said “Ya BF!” … OMG. Anyway, turns out that a teacher saw him at a jewelry store buying me a ring, and she overheard him say this to another teacher in her classroom. She’s only 13.. she’s much younger than me! (Keep in mind, this is all gossip. I have no confirmation that this is true.) Fast forward a bit… my cousin’s fiance texted him the other night and asked if he had bought me a ring. My boyfriend said “maybe, maybe not.” He just wouldn’t give an exact answer. Anyway, my cousin’s fiance asked him for a picture of the ring. He said he’d send it later and that he wasn’t around it right at the moment.
What do y’all think? Is he going to propose?! Did he even buy a ring!? I just don’t know what to think. Part of me feels bad that I know all of this — but I’ve been told all of this without asking for the information.
He has always said he will NOT propose to me on a holiday, so I don’t want to expect a Christmas engagement and then be dissapointed when I find out that he just got me a sweater or something.
We’ve been looking at rings for over a year, and he’s made a lot of comments here recently about the style or cut of rings.
My mother swears up and down that she doesn’t know anything at all, and that if she did she’d tell me. I don’t think he’s asked my dad yet, either. Im just annoyingly confused.
What do I do?

I think it’s just best to wait and see! He may have something really special planned whether or not if it’s on Christmas. He may be surprising you at a later date. Please don’t be disappointed if it doesn’t happen Christmas morning! Best of luck to you.

I can understand that. It’s tough! But I’m sure the time will come sooner than later! Keep your chin up.

It does sound like something will at least be coming within a few months. Maybe not Christmas, but I can’t blame you for getting excited! I hope it comes soon for you.

I know it will be hard, but try to relax and enjoy this time. Once you are engaged you’ll be focused on wedding planning, now is the time to sit back and relax. It will come, sounds like he’s dropping some hardcore hints, just don’t try to overthink it.

@suziechio: What to do?, What to do? Live your life and forget about it. You have been with the guy for 6 years, what is the rush now? If you get your hopes up, and then there is no ring, are you going to make him feel like crap about it? Live your life, love your man, and things will happen when they happen. There are more important things in life to stress about.

I can’t blame you for being excited. It’s totally possible that he will pop the question real soon! But on the other hand – now I’m just speaking from my experience, and everyone is different :p – you could be in a situation like me where my boyfriend shows all the telltale signs of wanting to propose (save for actually buyging a ring I guess) and me being constantly disappointed at holidays etc because I’ve never gotten one piece of jewelry (plenty of jewelry holders though!).
Anyway, I’m hoping the best for you and sending good thoughts your way!
