Hi ladies! I’m new here, and posted recently in the Intro thread.
Well, last month I went to visit my Boyfriend or Best Friend (we currently live about 4 hours apart) for a couple weeks during my vacation block that I have for pharmacy school. While I was there, I had computer issues and was using my old computer, but didn’t have the charger. Well, my BF’s work laptop uses the same charger as my old computer. While he was at work, I went to get the charger on his work computer, and his email was up. I noticed an email from his mom with the subject “Ring” or something similar. I didn’t open it, but I did notice that it had an attachment. After 2-3 days of torturing myself, I finally peaked. It turns out it was a scanned in copy of a ring appraisal from 1989. My Boyfriend or Best Friend had never mentioned a family ring in the 5.5 years that we had been dating.
Earlier this year, he started asking questions about what kind of rings that I like. I wanted to take him into a jewelry store and look myself some because I’d never done that, and honstely, I had no idea what I would like on my hand. He absolutely refused at first, and then he agreed to go. As we were walking in, he told me that I couldn’t try anything on and I couldn’t ask questions. I then got upset, and we ended up leaving before we could step foot into the store. Fast forward to now, it kinda makes since that he wouldn’t want to take me to look if he already had a ring. But at the same time, the family ring thing didn’t make since to me. He has told me many times that he would have already proposed if he had the money to buy the ring. He also makes jokes with me all the time about how he’s saving for something big like a boat, house, etc and then when I glare at him he laughs and says “or maybe something sparkley”. So if he already had a ring….why hadn’t he proposed?!?
Well, I made myself forget about the email thing and just blew it off. Until 2.5 weeks ago. I was still on my vacation block, but had gone home to visit my parents. I got a call from the Boyfriend or Best Friend and he asked for my ring size incase he wanted to buy me a “birthstone ring” or something for Christmas or something. Ha! So again, I get gitty and excited. Within an hour I went to the jewelry store and had my finger sized! I didn’t want to slow down this process anymore than it has been! Haha!
Well, now I’m back home at my apartment, and he’s in another state. I had a long weekend, and I was bored out of my mind. So I started snooping. After dating 5.5 years, I know every username and password combination that he has, so I started plugging them in his online credit card websites. After 2-3 tries, I get in. And there it is….a purchase on Sept 2nd from one of the major jewelry stores in his hometown. I brainstorm…He left work early that day to drive over to pick me up so we could go to our college’s football game that weekend! He dropped his dog off with his mom before he picked me up, and I guess he made a purchase the same day!
Now I’m dying inside. I’m 75% sure he hasn’t asked my parents permission (which he knows he has to do). And the thing with that is that my Dad lives about 14 hours away from where he lives, and my Boyfriend or Best Friend won’t see him until at least October. My mom also lives a pretty good distance away from him and who knows when he’ll see her.
I’m going to visit him this weekend, and I’m going to try my hardest not to snoop anymore than I already have. Ahh! I’m just so excited, I had to share it with everyone!! Sorry it’s such a long post!
