@HopefulInLove: I am right there with you. Every time we are watching TV there is some ad about how every kiss begins with Kay or something like that. I always wish I could disappear when those commercials come on because I feel like he might perceive them as pressure and it could backfire even though the pressure isn’t coming from me. Now I only want to rent movies and skip the TV until the holidays are over.

But your situation sounds promising!! Sounds like he has something up his sleeve. Good luck.

Ha!  YES.  So awkward.  I know it’s right around the corner so I always try to talk over them or get up and do something, but sometimes the timing just isn’t right and we have to sit quietly through the whole thing.  It reminds me of when I was younger and condom commercials would come on with my mom in the room just DYING to have “the talk”.  Soooo awkward!

Yes, it sounds like he’s trying to tell you it’s closer than you think. I totally understand what you mean about all the ads though, they are driving me bonkers too! They make me feel super awkward, and I agree that they kinda make you feel like your guy is gonna feel pressured by the commercials and scare them off!

Hmmm.  I agree with MisfitPrincess, that it sounds as if he may be up to something!

I would definitely apologize to him for taking the brochure out of his overnight bag, give it back to him, and acknowledge that he is right — you don’t know anything  about what he may be planning.  I would then sweetly thank him for showing an interest in something in which you’ve expressed an interest, and tell him you love him.  Then, give him a kiss, tell him you definitely don’t want to pressure him but you do want him to know that it makes you happy to know that he’s at least thinking about a future with you. Then I would tell him that you will refrain from making any further comments about rings and jewelry for awhile, because you do not want to know anything about anything that he may — or may not — be planning or when, since you would want to be surprised if and when that time DOES come. 

I think that will result in a positive response! 🙂

Ah yes they have started, nearly between every programme now. They show this sparkly engagement ring too, and it just sinks my heart when I see it even though I know I will get mine eventually, haha I am so silly!
