my Boyfriend or Best Friend and i recently ended our LDR and are finally together in the same city after 1.5years of being apart! although we are not living together, he does own a condo in downtown philadelphia. anyway, i was at his place while he was at work and i was putting away some sheets in the extra bedroom in his condo. mind you, we NEVER go in that room for any reason other than storage. i noticed the desk drawer was a little bit open, so before i left the room i tried to close it. but it was stuck. so i did what any person would do and pull it open. no biggie, until i noticed a small tiffany &co shopping bag in it.
i must tell you that although we do talk about getting married, i honestly in my heart of hearts have not wished or expected or hoped that this day would come soon. i mean, don’t get me wrong he is the love of my life, but i’m under the school of thought of, “when it happens, it happens” we openly talk about marriage, but i’ve made it clear that i don’t want to be part of the ring picking process (i’m super indecisive) and that my education comes first (i recently graduated from grad school)
our entire relationship has been long distance, and everyone-including him has been saying that it’s gonna happen as soon as i move back home. well…i’m FINALLY home.
anyway-back to the tiffany bag.
i look inside: little box, loose white ribbon, a diamond guide booklet, and an envelope with financing information.
a part of me wanted to just close the drawer and walk away. but i didn’t. the box was empty.
i will say, that at one point his younger sister lived with him, but she moved out years ago and got married. so i thought that it might be something she left behind. but really? i own tiffany jewelry from years ago and i keep the boxes with me. PLUS the bag was practically new.-nice and crisp.
do you think he has a ring? did i ruin something here? like i said, we talk about marriage, and i know he’s done “research” but i’m actually really surprised.
i just needed some opinions, because i’d feel stupid brining it up to my girlfriends if it wasn’t the case and it was something else like earrings. (but i know him, he wouldn’t buy me regular jewelry without my input)
well. i’m just going to live my life the way i did before i found that tiffany box. no expectations. just love. no waiting. is that even possible now?
thanks for reading.
