Lol men are so bad at subtlety I swear! My boyfriend has been making similar comments: I drove him to an urgent car clinic tonight because he’s having back pain and I was filling out his paperwork. When I filled myself as emergency contact I stopped at the “relationship to patient” part and wasn’t sure what to put. Girlfriend? Roommate? Lol. He said “fiancée” and I said uhhhh no I’m not, sir. Still waiting. He said “well you will be soon”. And at one point I was so stressed and distracted I misspelled his last name on one form and he said “you need to learn to spell it, it’s going to be yours too soon.” Okay, honey I get it! Haha. Just give me the damn ring already! 

But enough about myself…I think your SO is either definitely proposing and trying to be sly (and failing) about it, or it’s not really a ring and he’s trying to make you think it is so he can surprise you with a proposal later or maybe even sooner? Who knows but I’m sending you ENGAGEMENT vibes!

AcousticHeart :  omg guys really are bad at being subtle my boyfriend does the same thing lol I was making him an doctor appointment and of course they asked me what’s my relationship to the patient so I say girlfriend later when I told him he was like why didn’t you say fiancé! I told him because he hasn’t asked me yet and he told me soon I will be so I need to get in the habit of just saying it lol there have been other similar situations like that lately lol

Be careful with this, as men think completely differently than we do. I’m also a “Waiting Bee” and my SO recently made a big deal over a surprise Christmas present similar to how yours has. He’s also been discussing marriage more and learned my ring size. But guess what? I accidentally saw a text message from his mother pop up on his phone the other day about the diamond earrings he’d bought me.

I’m not trying to be a Debbie Downer so please don’t take my post as such – I really hope it’s a ring and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you! But, try not to get your hopes up and remember that engagement rings aren’t the only things that are expensive and come in small boxes. While men often aren’t too good with subtlety, they’re also often not too good at understanding how misleading their clues can be. Too many Bees have been crushed over things like this, including myself.

OP, I think it’s possible that he’ll propose, but if he ordered your present last night, it might not be a ring. Depending on what you both want, rings can sometimes take a while to be made and sent. 

I could be totally wrong, but I think pacing yourself is probably best, because either you’ll get something else that’s really great, or you’ll get the ring!

just when i thought i would get a christmas proposal. I found a receipt for a $700 laptop. Really disappointed not only because its not a ring but because its a big investement that I wasnt really in need of. I could have used the $700 for remodeling our home or the new bed we need. I dont think an engagement is coming any time soon at this point..:(
