It’s been a while since I’ve posted, I took a little break from the boards to focus on work and take my mind off not being engaged yet lol. I’ve lurked a bit here and there, definitely couldn’t keep myself completely away all the time! 😉
So… there’s been a development that I just had to share with you guys. Ahh I’m still shocked over it haha.
I haven’t brought up any ring/engagement talk for a few months now, since I showed my guy a moissanite e-ring that I had fallen in love with. As you all know, ‘a few months’ in girl-waiting-for-a-proposal-land can feel like for-freaking-ever to not say a peep. I’m proud of myself. He’s made some cute little offhand comments here and there, which is always awesome. Things have been wonderful relationship-wise.
So… normally whenever there has been ring talk, it’s pretty well always been initiated by me. Occasionally, he’d randomly point out a ring on a commercial, which would make my stomach do flip flops, but that’s about it.
The other night while I was at work, I was on a call with a client when I received a text from my SO. Okay, nothing new there. Then I look at the text. He’s like “hey babe, just researching rings, do you still want the moissanite?”
UMM…did this really just happen?! I almost fell out of my chair, you guys!! My heart started racing and I could barely focus on anything at all for the rest of the night!!! Just as an FYI…. my SO never, ever, ever brings up anything along those lines on his own. Ever. It is literally ALWAYS me initiating ring talk! OH MY GOD. I’m still freaking out. It was so random and out of nowhere!
I came home last night and I could barely look at him! All I wanted to do was giggle haha. It was hilarious. I’m so excited.
Here’s my question for you guys. I had said I still loved the moissanite, it was a great price, but it was up to him. Neither of us mentioned anything when I got home last night.
Should I sweetly/casually ask how his research went or just keep quiet from now on? My first thought was that I’m just going to keep quiet because clearly he has started something/is seriously starting to think about proposing/is planning to make a purchase soon. I think, anyway [thoughts, anyone?]. Gah. But then the other part of me wants to also let him know how much I really, really, really love that particular ring lol.
What would you guys do?
