Sorry for the long post, kudos to those of you who get through it!
A few weeks ago my SO and I had a really big conversation about getting engaged. See my previous post if you want the whole story! At the end of the conversation we decided that we both wanted to get engaged sooner rather than later, and he said his first step would be to talk to his family about his great grandmother’s heirloom ring, and hopefully let me see it before he proposes. I have been trying so hard to be good and not bring things up, but haven’t been doing a very good job… It’s been three weeks and NOTHING! I kind of thought he’d tell me when he told his parents we were planning on getting engaged soon since he originally said he wanted to make sure I liked the family ring before he proposes with it, so three weeks with no updates has been torture!
But, in the last two days, three things.
1.) A river cruises through Europe brochure was left out on the (cluttered) bar in the kitchen. Not sure if this was a mistake or not; I ignored it for a day and when it hadn’t been hastily hidden, I jokingly pointed to it while I was doing something at the bar and said “Hey, are we going on a river cruise?” His parents travel a ton and I figured if it was mail that had mistakenly come to us or something of theirs they gave him to keep him updated on an itinerary, etc… that he’d just tell me. He sarcastically replied “yup, going on a river cruise to Disneyland. Secret river cruise down to Anaheim.” (I love Disneyland.) No serious explanation about what the brochure was really doing there.
2.) As you may have gathered, I love Disneyland. So does he! In our ~3 years together we’ve been to Disneyland three times and Disney World once. While being very bad and asking about getting married, I asked if we could get married or go to Disneyland or go to Disney World. He said we were too broke for two of those things and the third would happen very soon, and when I asked “Disneyland!?” he rolled his eyes at me.
3.) This one, if I saw correctly, may be the most damning piece of evidence. I saw him checking his phone while it was on the table, and in a text from his mom I’m pretty sure I saw my name and the word “ring” in the same sentence. I was reading upside down and he navigated away from the screen fairly quickly, but…!
So, do you think I’m reading into this? This is driving me NUTS, I feel like a crazy person! I kind of enjoy the anticipation, but not when I start seeing clues in everything.
