My boyfriend of 3 years might propose soon.
His mother passed away earlier this year. And recently (a month ago)we drove up the coast of California to check on his dad’s condo in San Diego – we live 1.5 hours north of San Diego. His dad lives part time in San Diego and part time in Michigan. He spends the winters in San Diego. Anyways, while we were there he said.. “my mom left us something special in her will.” And I asked what it was a few times and he said I would find out soon enough. Now this passed week he made last minute plan to fly home to Michigan to visit with his friends and family. A bunch of guys are going fishing and doing guy stuff to celebrate because 2 of them will be married this year. He had lunch with his dad and visited his parents house and then went off with his friends. The whole week before he left , he has constantly been saying I love you more than usual… and since he has been gone.. he is calling and texting sweet things. Last week he even took me on a fancy date and had a converstaion about what he pictures “out wedding” to be like. Also, my long lost dad whom I never see and rarely talk too decides to fly down in a month and meet my boyfriend and wants to spend quality time with both of us. I even suggested him coming another weekend when I would be alone.. but my dad wanted to spend time with my boyfriend too…. Do you think its coming soon? Do you think the thing in the will is his mom’s engagement ring? Do you think he went to pick it up this weekend? Or is my mind going crazy with thoughts?

Whatever it could be, I think you need to think about something else! Having your mind go crazy about what it could or couldn’t be is going to drive you crazy and potentially ruining the surprise. Just because he is maybe getting a ring this week, doesn’t mean he will propose right away (and some guys don’t want to propose when you are expecting it). Just enjoy him wooing you!

It sounds like that might be what’s going on, but who knows? You’ll drive yourself crazy trying to figure it out, so just enjoy the ‘I love yous’ and the extra attention. 🙂 Oh…and keep me posted! Good luck.

Yes. I am going to try and think about other things. I will focus on work and look forward to seeing him Monday when he gets back. Thanks for the advice.

I was thinking “OMG that sounds promising!” while I was reading your post…I am absolutely guilty of getting my hopes up on your behalf 😉
But the other posters are right, you can’t drive yourself crazy. Do whatever it takes to keep you mind on other things and do enjoy your Boyfriend or Best Friend being so affectionate.

I no longer think this is the case. I think I let my mind get the best of me. He is back and back to normal… no more extra mushy love stuff. He is emailing me all day and it is just normal boring bills and normal boring stuff. I just lost the vibe. I don’t feel the vibe anymore.

Hang in there – it’ll happen!
