Long time lurker here. I really got involved with weddingbee when I was trying to help pick out a ring for a friend. And now it seems to be my turn!
I apologize for this being so long!
I need your opinions stat! My SO and I are going on vacation tomorrow morning for two weeks, the second weekend we are there we are going to a “surprise destination” that my SO won’t tell me anything about. Along with this he has recently asked for my ring size and what kind of styles I like. He wouldn’t let me show him anything becasue it’s “his thing.” He even has admitted to going ring shopping about two weeks ago and quickly followed by “I’m not saying I’ve bought the ring or not!”
Recently, we have been looking for houses and decided not to purchase until we are officially engaged. We have the date picked, assuming the Church isn’t booked. We have all the details about the wedding picked and have even decided we when we want to start TTC. He said not to worry, the proposal should be coing by the end of the year.
Then about a month ago he expressed concern about talking with my grandfather for my hand and wondering if my grandfather liked him. (My parents aren’t in the picture) And then suddenly, seems quite confident my grandparents like him. This seems a little strange to me that all of the sudden he has all this confidence about it…
Finally, the last week he has been acting really strange. He did have a head cold but I felt like more was going on. He asked again if the ring size I’d given him, like if I were sure and things like that. He has been a little distant, like avoiding talking about our vacation when that’s all we’ve talked about for weeks. It just seems like he’s trying not to bring it up!
Anyway, don’t be shy, let me know what you think!

@DoctorAndDoctor: Oh my gosh, you have no idea. I’m always trying not to be expecting it. I brought several dresses on this trip and SO knows the only time I dress up is when I’m expecting something. He actually changed the “suprise destination” and admitted he wanted to take me to NYC for two days but decided we should do that during the week. When he was changing his mind he noticed I got kind of upset (like disapointed) and wouldn’t let it go. I finally told him it was because I was kind of hoping he’d propose and he said it could still happen but it’ll happen when it happens and I need to try and stop guessing. Ugh! I wish I could! haha

Week one of our vacation down, and nothing! He asked me to get his phone charger from his bag so I now I know my ring wasn’t with him then. BUT we came home for the weekend so he can go to the football game and yesturday was supppper supicious.
His mom called him and he did something he never, ever does. He turned down the volume on his phone. At first I was like, oh no, she’s talking about me. But then he started saying things like “so he said there’s no problem?” and claiming he had to stop at his mom’s house today and just making all these excuses on why he can’t see me until later. He also made plans to visit the aqarium on our way home next week as well as a few other places. Then lastly, after his mom’s phone call, I said something like “So you’re going to move in after we get home right?” (We’re planning on him moving in to my apartment while we continue to house shop) And he totally couldn’t look me in the eye and laughed and said maybe. The suspence is seriously killing me!
