- Wedding: October 2015
Well, relatively soon. Lol I really don’t know how soon it is. However, there have been some recent developments! I considered going anonymous for this because SO does know my screen name on WB. But he promised me a long time ago that he never checks what I post, so I will trust him on this. :p
The other night my roommate informed me, out of the blue, that she had messaged my SO on Facebook and asked him when we were getting engaged. He said, “Probably soon” and didn’t give any more details than that, to my knowledge anyway.
However, I’m not sure how serious I should take this. My roommate is rather flighty, irresponsible and young. I would be very surprised if my SO actually told her his plans, at least his concrete plans. He might have told her this to throw her off or something, who knows. So I’m taking this with a grain of salt.
But today…oh, today was very interesting. We are moving in together in January (assuming I get a job soon) and we were just looking at bargain, cheap furniture for fun, just window shopping.
But SO says to me with a smile, “We’ll get nicer furniture when we get married.”
And while discussing our future today, he kept saying the words “when we get married.”
And I grinned a huge grin at him and told him, “I like it when you say the M word! You hardly ever say it and I love it when you say it!”
He just laughed at me and called me a goofball, which is one of our nicknames for each other 🙂
And THEN…the last good sign today. We were discussing moving in together and how my family would not be happy that we will be “living in sin”.
SO says to me, “I’m going to say this once and then we’re going to let the subject drop. I’m just gonna say…your family won’t be as unhappy as you think they will be.”
And granted, at face value, that sentence doesn’t mean much. But y’all…it was the CONTEXT. Just the way he said it! He was so confident and mysterious about it. Plus…I remembered a conversation that we had MONTHS ago. I mean, this was maybe a year ago, actually. We were discussing the possibility of moving in together. And out of the blue, SO asked me this interesting question. “Would your family be less upset about us living together if we were engaged?”
I answered that I wasn’t sure. No one in my family had ever done it before so I didn’t know how strongly they would react. Everyone has always waited until marriage to live together. I’m not sure how they would feel if we were engaged first.
SO just said, “Hmm. Ok.” Then he changed the subject.
So all this today…plus the fact that he has been acting super lovey-dovey for the past few months…it kind of makes me feel like he’s gonna propose around the holidays!
But I’m still not totally sure lol. I thought he might propose on our one year anniversary back in September but I was obviously wrong about that. Still…today seemed promising 🙂
And now I have to try to put this out of my head again…if I keep thinking about it, I’m gonna go crazy! Ahhh!!
