My SO told me he was going to propose “probably some time next year”, and he said money was the only factor. The other night he was looking at a $2,000 boat and gave me the “come on, lets get it! please?” look. I said something I shouldn’t have (you have money for a boat but not a ring?) and it started a..ahem… conversation. He said, what if I’m going to have money for both of them very soon? I doubted him (oops). And then he said, what if I already have it all planned out up here *points to temple*? Again, I doubted him because he’s convinced me that this isn’t happening for a looong time – like, not even on his radar.
Then he teased, “other people will know about it before you” to which I replied, “what’s that mean?” and he said that’s all he would tell me. Finally he said, “I still have 7 months!” – he was referring to the time I said I wanted to be engaged after a year of living together. That timeline had been thrown out the window, but it seems as though it’s back in. He made me shake on a deal that I wouldn’t get upset for 7 months.
He told me that it’s going to happen when I’m not expecting it, and said that because of that I need to stop thinking about it. Last night he was on his laptop and I asked out of curiosity what he was doing and he said “nothing” and hid the computer when I tilted my head and said he was closing windows that didn’t need to be open. VERY unlike him. He said, “what if I’m doing *something*?” and grinned.
I’m starting to think all this talk about not having money was just a cover so that I would be surprised. I’m going to keep my mouth shut from here on in so I don’t ruin anything else!
