Hi Bees! Sorry in advance for the length of this post, but I need to talk to someone about this! I need a little advice, but wanted to give a little bit of background first. My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have been together for 8 years and I’ve been waiting (not so) patiently for a ring. We’ve been living together for 5 years, and discuss getting married a lot. He keeps telling me that he needs to continue to save for a ring, but that a proposal is coming in the next 2 years – we’re both 27.
A couple of weeks before Thanksigiving he asked me to send him some “ring options” and we agreed on a setting we both liked. Days later he asked me for my ring size. Last Tuesday I was talking to my Dad on the phone, and he let it slip that my Boyfriend or Best Friend called him about a “Christmas present”, which I thought was weird because they never talk to each other on the phone. My Dad must have let him know, because Boyfriend or Best Friend covered it up by saying he accidently dialed my parents, meaning to call me. I’m 99% sure this was “the phone call” where he asked my dad’s permission.
Anyway, he keeps telling me he really knows what I want for Christmas, but can’t afford it right now, which I know he’s just saying (he’s saved enough by now). The only reason I think it might not be coming on Christmas is because we’re together ALL the time and I’m wondering when he would have the time to slip away and buy the ring. Do you bees think a Christmas proposal could really be in my future??
Thank you for any advice you can give!
