Freaking out a little.
I was suspecting a proposal may happen near the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014, but I think it may be coming sooner ..as in the near future.
SO asked me to send him a couple of ring styles I like about a month ago. Today, he had the day off from work and said he spent the afternoon running errands. I asked what ones (just making convo) and he responded with “Just …had stuff to take care of” and changed the topic.
Now normally, SO would tell me about his whole day. And I know for a fact he didnt have 3 or 4 hours worth of “errands”. So I’m suspicious.
Other signs it may be happening sooner than I thought:He has been extra mushy & lovey dovey. It has almost been too much for me, honestly ;). He also has been sending me a bunch of links online to houses for sale. Buying a house isn’t something we plan on doing until we’re in the process of getting married.
Sigh. I hope I’m not hyping this up to nothing but all signs are promising!

@beemo: I’ve been very good about keeping my mouth shut thus far! I’ve brought it up maybe twice in the past 6 or 7 months. I shall continue with that as hard as it is ….

All signs point to yes! This is EXACTLY how my SO has been the last month. And he’s had the ring for a week. Best of luck to you! 🙂

@This Time Round: I’d say for us waiting bees, any time is a nice time to get engaged 😉 …but yes, a summer proposal would be just fine by me. THE SOONER THE BETTER!

Mine ordered the ring on the 4th. It is coming here sometime next week. I’m not getting it until November or December so I guess the ring and I are going to have to learn how to cohabitate without me RIPPING THE APARTMENT APART. I can’t wait to see it!

Update: He is making plans to stop & stay at my parents’ house on his way down to vacation with his family in a couple of weeks. He says its so he doesn’t have to pay for a hotel room, but I’m almost positive he’ll be talking to my dad then. He goes through my hometown every year on his way to vacation with his fam & has never asked to stay there before….
He was also asking what my dad’s work schedule was (as my dad works night shift sometimes).
I wish I didn’t pick up on things so easily & that SO wasn’t making things so obvious! (Though I know he thinks he’s being sneaky, lol. Sigh…poor guy.)
@CaroBee: That would be torture!!!! Ah, good luck.
@Prettygirltisha: Thanks 😉
@cherriesandcream: He is bad at it apparently! As far as not bringing it up …we had a big talk about 7 or 8 months ago where we talked about a vague timeline and his plans to start saving for a ring. Once I knew we were on the same page& had a bit of an idea, it was much easier to shut up about it …though I had a few tough days in there, believe me!
