- Wedding: City, State
Bees…I’m at work, but my heart is literally beating insanely out of my chest right now, in a good way! Please help it calm down so I stop getting my hopes up!
My SO planned a fun big weekend for us, which he will occasionally do for no reason when he’s got free time at work. We’re exploring a local tourist location we haven’t been to yet, then have a “surprise activity” (not unusual for him), then we’re hosting a bunch of people for drinks for his birthday party in the evening. We’re also supposed to be going ring shopping on Sunday, which we started doing a few months ago but then haven’t done recently.
Butttt I feel like there’s been some suspicious behavior on his part about this weekend, which is making me wonder if he’s actually going to propose (!!) and the shopping plan is a decoy when he already has a ring.
Things that are making me suspicious (in order of least suspicious to most…):
– He keeps checking if all my friends are coming to tomorrow night’s party. Now, he is always nice to my friends, but in the past he’s discouraged me from inviting too many of my friends to parties he is hosting due to space limitations in our apartment.
– He checked several times to make sure my Saturday was entirely open. I’ve had to work some weekends lately, and usually he’s really flexible about it, but he kept saying “OK you can work Sunday, not Saturday though”
– I saw a text from my dad pop up on his iPad two weeks ago. I didn’t read it (self control!), but it was decidedly unusual. (I told him I’d like him to ask my dad first, and they don’t otherwise just chat for no reason…)
– and now, the one that is most confusing and that made me freak out: my friend just sent me a screenshot of him texting her about “needing to know where the cake was from, it’s important” The cake that is supposed to say Happy Birthday to him that I ordered for his party. WHY WOULD HE NEED TO KNOW THAT unless he’s changing the message or something?!?
Everyone please start giving me alternative explanations so I can focus again at work!!
