- Wedding: May 2014
My bf and I have been together for 4 years now. We met during the beginning of my freshman year (his senior year) of high school and have been dating since. I come from a long line of young love. My grandparents never dated and while Granny was already engaged to another man, my grandfather (who lived next door to her) was on the plane home from Vietnam and called her saying “If you want to marry me, meet me at the airport tomorrow.” She did and they have been happily married since. My parents started dating in highchool and ended up getting married two years later during my mother’s senior year on her birthday. Again, happily married still!
Now back to me. I rode the pep-bus to an away game at my highschool and a boy saw that I was alone in my seat and sat next to me. I’m a very socially akward type and find it very hard to talk to people, but we never stopped talking for the entire three hour ride, even though I had never seen him before. During the game, a mutual friend told me that he was interested in me, so I led him on. Later that night on the ride home, he asked me out and gave me my first kiss. I figured I would date him and see where it went. Now it is four years later and we are still happily together.
Last month, I accidentally walked in on him and my father having the “marriage talk” and Boyfriend or Best Friend told Dad that he was planning on proposing soon and Dad gave his blessing. Since the cat was out of the bag, the whole street knew we were “engaged”. The problem was, even though I knew he was planning on proposing soon, it wasn’t offical and now we are stuck in kind of a limbo. We went window shopping for rings soon after and I gave him some choices. Now for the exciting part….
Last week while Boyfriend or Best Friend was in the bathroom, I happened to see a shiny, metallic rose lying on his coffee table. I looked at it, picked it up, and realized it had a hinge. OH. MY. GOD. When I opened it, a shiny, blingy ring stared at me! I threw it back on the table and pretended that I had not noticed it. A few minutes later after I left the room, I saw that Boyfriend or Best Friend had hidden it again.
Here is a photo of the rose ring box:

This friday is BF’s birthday and I have a feeling that he isn’t the only one getting a present 🙂
P.S. I am a new bee, can someone tell me what Fiance means? I feel silly that I cannot figure it out.
P.S.S Thanks girls for telling me!
