- Wedding: June 2016
OMG! I’m just having a bad waiting day.
For those who don’t know my story…I proposed to my boyfriend back in the 2nd week of January. He said yes (with no hesitation I might add) but wanted to make sure he got me a ring before we tell anyone we are officially engaged. A month later, no talk of the subject happened ( I was waiting on him to suggest going and looking at rings) so I kept quiet until he asked me what I wanted for my birthday. Well of course I have been looking and researching what I wanted and found the perfect ring for me. I told him I wanted to make our engagement official and showed him a picture of the ring. He said he has a timeline for saving and purchasing. I thought maybe after that he would take me ring shopping on my birthday. Well, my birthday came and nothing. (Ecept a card and steak, but whatever, lol) I was kind of surprised nothing was mentioned.
So his tax return came (a decent one I might add, more than enough to pay for the ring) and still, nothing. I dont know, I just feel like I am always the one to bring it up. He is very generous and never makes me feel bad for doing so, but I don’t want to have to keep reminding him, and I feel like that’s what I am doing. My ring is very simple…nothing custom or too expensive by any means, so I cant see why it would take months for him to give it to me. And the whole ring thing is so much more important to him than it is to me. I may sound out of line here, but now that it’s been almost 2 months since I asked him I feel like he is kind of diminishing my proposal.
I totally realize that I am probably coming off as a huge ungreatful B, but really, it’s just a bad day. This is the first time I have felt really frustrated with the whole thing. I got ahead of myself and told my friends and family about proposing, so all everyone keeps asking me is “Where’s the ring? Arent you engaged yet? Didn’t he say yes?” It’s kind of embarrassing!
Do you think I should bring it up or just keep Shutting It Up?? I really want to ask what his saving timeline is, and if we could AT LEAST go look at rings so he can see the ring in the picture…
Thanks in advance for reading my novel 🙂
