Didn’t get a ring, but I wasn’t expecting it! There is always that faint little hope…

Well I didn’t get a ring today either.  I didn’t really expect it, because my SO has told me several times, at length, how he deeply despises holiday proposals (he’s such a wierdo).  Besides according to our timeline, it’ll be another 3-5 months. But for some reason, I thought there might be a reason to keep a tiny shred of hope for a Christmas proposal.  WRONG!  

I’m not upset about it though.  But when I started getting calls today, about other people’s holiday engagements, I felt a tinge of jealousy.

No ring and we just had our 4 year anniversary. My walk date is rapidly approaching.

@Alaric2012:  I’m with you πŸ™‚ There is always another day. And I knew it wasn’t happening until 2013 anyway, just hoped a little. But my awesome gifts from him made up for it! So thoughtful!

Don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up, but…remember, ladies, New Year’s is another popular engagement time.  Chins up!

I pretty much knew it wasn’t coming today, but I was still expecting a “big” present… the gift I got him was super thoughtful (and fairly expensive), and I’d been dropping LOUD hints about wanting diamonds, and he SEEMED to get it…

Today, I was making us Christmas breakfast, and he comes out to give me my present… it was so obvious, before I even unwrapped it that it was a SCARF. He had said he was getting me a scarf, but I honestly thought he was kidding… a scarf seems like the kind of present you get for someone you barely know!

I openend it and tried my hardest to pretend that I liked it (he has been being so romantic lately that I didn’t want him to think I was mad, because I wasn’t mad, just disapointed) but he could tell I didn’t, and I even started crying even though I was trying to hide it… he knew instantly he really fucked up and got really upset and really seemed to be even more depressed about it than I was, like he was MAD at himself for getting me something I didn’t love.  

I ended up telling him what I had wanted (jewelry I could wear and think of him) and he said he thought I was kidding when I said that (because I don’t wear much jewelry).

Anyway, while I finishing making breakfast he went out to “get coffee” but ended up going to Walgreens and coming back with a stocking stuffed with a ton of things that were very “me.” Ice cube trays (because I’m always making him make me more ice), chocolate covered pretzels (my favorite), a magazine on Astrology (i’m obsessed), and a ton of other stuff…

It ended up making me really happy, I just wanted him to put an effort in.

@laughs:  Awwww… Thats so cute!! πŸ™‚ He just added himself some brownie points!

 

@Helloemi:  I was DEFINATELY not expecting it either, but it’s funny how that glimmer of hope still remains. STOOPID HOPE. πŸ˜›

Trying to be hopeful and see what happens tomorrow. It’s seems like he is planning something but I’m not sure. We will see what happens. For a second I knew it was going to happen but it didn’t

Although I am not expecting a proposal until mid-2013, I have to admit that seeing all the recent proposals on my Facebook newsfeed tonight is causing some slight jealousy πŸ˜›

I was pretty sure it would not happen today… But I was still hoping!! Nothing sparkly. Kinda wish he didn’t spend so much money on presents though- wish he saved it for a ring!
