- Wedding: September 2013
Hello ladies! I’m a new waiting bee, and I totally understand the wait! My SO and I have been together for almost 7 years, lived together for 6 years, and have talked many times about marriage/kids. He’s already planned out where he wants to go on our honeymoon (because we are paying for it) and was looking at airfare prices for Aug/Sept 2013. He’s even discussed it with my parents a little over a year ago. Of course I’ve been planning my “imaginary” wedding for probably about 2 years now, you know, looking around online, getting ideas and such, and he’s been giving me his imput on wedding stuff the whole time, so I don’t feel as though I’ve pressured him into anything. We’ve also talked about having kids when we’re 30, and we are both 28, so I’m started to feel the clock ticking back in January on my 28th birthday! lol
Well here’s my waiting story…we were at a close friend’s wedding in May, whose guest included a lot of my SO’s buddies from high school. While they were catching up, SO introduced me to his old friends and told them that we had been together for over 6 years. So naturally, one of the old friends told SO that it was beyond time for us to get married, and SO says “we’ll be engaged by the end of this year.” I jokingly told SO to not say that because New Years Eve could turn out to be a horrible night for him if I didn’t have a proposal by then! SO told me not to worry.
Well…I worry…that’s just how I operate! LOL
About a month ago, we went and looked at rings, so SO could get an idea of what I like. Then he told me two weeks ago that he and a friend were going to the mall (where a ring I really liked was at Reeds in the mall). Since SO NEVER goes to the mall shopping (his idea of shopping is buying games at Best Buy lol) I thought something was up, but admittedly, I was being a little annoying talking about rings since we went and looked, so I decided to not say anything. We still have not talked about his trip to the mall that day.
Waiting’s been driving me crazy. He knows I want the surprise and romance of it all, but I’ll admit I’m not a patient person! Everytime we are alone, walking through town talking about the pretty Christmas lights or planning our weekends out I think maybe he’ll propose! He’s said before he wouldn’t propose on Christmas, because he thinks it’s cliche…maybe he’s trying to throw me off? My close girl firends are no help to talk to because they all seem to really want to know when it’s going to happen before it happens and are scheming to ask him about it when I’m not around and I don’t think that’s fair. I don’t want EVERYONE to know before it happens, then who can I tell when it does happen?!
How are you guys handling the wait? 🙂
