I also knew about my upcoming proposal through a stupid argument.
Since 3 or 4 months ago, one evening suddenly my bf texted my and asked me a picture of my sis in law’s engagement ring. I was like “wth why dont u ask her by yourself, it was on her instagram for goodness sake” but I soon forget it and even joke around him about it.
Then a few days ago, I was facetime-ing with him when his mom suddenly opened the door to his room and ask “where is the picture of ring you wanna bought for xxx (my name)”. We laugh awkwardly towards that conversation and did not discuss it further.
The next day, when he picked me up from work, his mom called him again to confirm my ring size… she definitely always choose the wrong time….
Then my bf ended the phone and ask my “are you sure about your ring size that you told me months ago? it was so much bigger than my mom, you are thinner than her”
Blame it on hormones, I exploded… I know it was stupid, especially after reading other stories in here, but I was really dissapointed at that time. He asked the exact design to me instead of my brother / sister in law. He even reasoned on his laziness to open instagram (he did not use social media too much) so he asked me to open it for him. Then added the ring size question (he already knew I have the same ring size as my sister in law). I blame him for ruining my once in a lifetime moment, for ruining the surprise that wont be a surprise anymore for me.
After heated and stupid arguments, both of us apologized. Now I know it is going to happen, and it will happen SOON (again, his mom talked to his aunt about him wanting to propose to me WHEN I WAS VISITING THEIR HOUSE -____-). My bf (or soon to be fiance) now forbid me to even touch his phone, saying all his secrets are there, and I obviously know what kind of secret that would be.
But forgeting the stupid arguments, now that I know I’m about to embark a new journey with him, about to have a new adventure with the one I really love, and about to spend the rest of my life with him, I AM EXCITED! I can’t say that the surprise engagement has been ruined, because honestly I only know the general design of the ring and general timeframe when he gonna asked the question.
I don’t know the exact time when, and obviously the how. Right now I’m on a 2 week business trips, and somehow I have a feeling he gonna go to my house while I’m away to ask my parents… We’ll see what happens next, and I am sure whatever it is, its gonna be special. Whatever the way he ask me, or no matter how much I have already known beforehand, what makes it special is that IT IS HIM who ask me, and IT IS HIM I’m gonna spend the rest of my life with <3
