Within the last week I’ve noticed a huge change in how SO’s parents are in my presence. It seems everything is back to normal and they have included me in many things, and have been overly kind.
A few comments have been passed in the presence of friends though that have me wondering. SO made a comment a couple of weeks ago to his friend and friend’s wife about how “our wedding” would be – teasing me, of course, because he would like to add some stage props in it. This is the first time anything has been mentioned in front of friends about the direction of our relationship.
SO commented at a wedding we attended this past weekend his dream groom’s cake and how he feels like he’s known me five years, to a table of folks.
After I cooked dinner and watched football with SO and one of his other male friends, I heard a hushed discussion while SO was seeing the friend out and the friend saying with some happiness, “welcome to the club.”
SO calls his brother and laughs, says “nothing is wrong” and that he “chickened out”.
I’m enjoying it. Anyone else hear these kind of comments during your waiting?

That is rather funny!
My Boyfriend or Best Friend isnt spilling anything… he keeps asking “when do you think i will propose?” and i really think it will be just before our 5 year anniversary in June 2010. I know he wont propose on our anniversary because i will be expecting it, but a couple of weeks… MONTHS… before would be welcome!!!
@noornoor – any special occasions coming up that might be an indicator??

So many! We haven’t been dating too long, but to name a few… my birthday in a few months, our trip to the Caribbean (my Christmas present from SO!) in December, Valentine’s Day, our April anniversary…
Really, it could be anytime or no time soon. I just got the nerve to tell him I would prefer to pick out the ring, and he asked what I had in mind… so I described my ideal ring and we talked about the pricing last night. I still think though I have an ideal, going ring shopping maybe would be better.
I have a feeling he will wait until sometime later next year though. His brother is getting married in the spring and I doubt he’d want to take away their thunder. *sigh* I suppose I can wait. 🙂

I have no idea if he’ll be nervous at all… probably, since he really hates even the *thought* of disappointing me! He’ll probably try to act all nonchalant about it, but it totally won’t work cause I know him too well!
