I know ya’ll are probably sick to death of hearing about this, but I just HAD to share!
So, along with all the other hints in my other threads, here is another exciting piece of the puzzle.
I was out with my Mom today running errands while SO is at work. She and I got to talking about weddings and such. SO became the topic. She started joking around saying she couldn’t picture him in a tux (he’s a working class good ol country boy!). So SO texted me and I told him we were talking about him. He asked what was being said and so I told him about how my mom was talking about us getting married and whatnot. Well, his response was “LOL…I can’t wait to give you your birthday present….Your mom will love it too!”
UMMMMMMM WHAT?!??! WHY else would he say that?????? Bring me down girls, bring me down!! This is going to be the longest week and a half of my life!!!!

He could be heckling you… My guy just pulled a similar stunt. I KNOW he’s not proposing until after Thanksgiving, but he still moved my great-grandma’s ring… No more than five minutes after he announced where he was putting it. -.- (Trying to bring you down to earth… Must not get excited on your behalf. Must not get excited…)

LOL I appreciate it ladies! I’m honestly not trying to read too much into it, but who wouldn’t?? Like I said before, if it’s not a proposal, I won’t be dissapointed. I will love WHATEVER he gives me. But I sure am hoping this is it!!!

I’m with the rest of the ladies, I don’t know how well I’ll do at talking you down, but here goes: Find as many of your hobbies as you can, and cram them all into the next week! Go to the library, stock up on books (personally, though, I would steer clear of anything even resembling a romance novel or self help book, they could both kill your self esteem, given your emotional state, but again, that’s just IMHO), or go to the gym, or find a friend that need your help with something (anything). Whatever floats your boat, and is sure to distract you, DO IT! I just recieved some similar “distracting” advice myself, though my sit. is nowhere near as exciting as yours. Good luck, either way, and keep us posted!

I can’t imagine what else it would be!!! I haven’t been able to distract myself very well, hence reading these boards! Instead I went and bought a wedding magazine to change my anxiety from waiting for a proposal, to planning ideas for a wedding. It really has helped get rid of the anxiety, but definitely isn’t far from the subject, lol.
Anyway, I would love to try and talk you down, but I have to think it has to be a ring!!

@Young.love: Oof, whether it’s a ring or not, that won’t change that this will be a long week and a half for you. I say, do *whatever it takes* to distract yourself, get your mind off of it, and get support from people in your circle. Take on an all-consuming project (for me, this would be cleaning my closet) and have a girlfriend help you/hold your hand. Make sure it’s something BIG! For me, the typical “pampering stuff” doesn’t really help distract me when I’m really in the throes of waiting anxiety….I just end up thinking about waiting while I’m getting my pedicure or taking a bubble bath, LOL!
That’s my advice. Some totally consuming project that will keep you busy, that you cannot leave half-finished. Or do some volunteering! We just had a huge explosion and fire in a nearby city in a residential neighborhood (San Bruno, San Francisco area) and it was declared a state of emergency. If you were here, I’d say get your butt down to the red cross station and have them put you to work. That would surely get your mind off of it!
