- Wedding: October 2020 - City, State
Hello Bees! LONG time lurker, now I finally get to join!
My boyfriend and I were long distance for 4 years before moving in together in March this year. Since then we’ve started our careers, adopted a cat together, and have shared some scary, bad, and hard times but everything is wonderful between us. Marriage and children have come up between us several times but it seems like my birthday in two weeks might be The Night:
Hint 1) We were at breakfast last weekend and my boyfriend was talking about starting a new position at his job in a year or so. I said that it would be fun to see where we would be at in a year and he said, “Definitely engaged.”
Hint 2) An old friend of his that was recently engaged called. My BF congratulated him and then started to go, “Well, I’m planning to-” before noticing I was in the kitchen a few feet away and changed the subject.
Hint 3) We had originally planned to go out to dinner with friends for my birthday, but he asked if we could go to dinner just by ourselves on the actual day and then celebrate with friends that weekend.
So, I don’t want to read too much into it and over analyze (which I am fantastic at doing) but I feel like this may be it. I’m just trying to stay patient and not go crazy until then!

Congrats, that’s exciting! It definitely sounds like it COULD be your birthday. But don’t place all your bets on it, of course. Even if he is planning on doing it on your birthday, plans change and he could decide he wants to propose a different day for whatever reason. But regardless, it definitely sounds like he is planning to propose at some point within the next year at least (considering he pretty much said that outright). So this is exciting times!!
I’m also getting engaged soon, although probably not for another month because we just moved and we’re doing work on the house as well as work on the unit we just moved out of (my SO owns it and is renting it out). But I still can’t help reading into everything, even though I KNOW there’s no way he’s going to propose for at least the next couple of weeks, so I can’t imagine how hard it must be to not read into things when a proposal could happen at any time lol. The best advice I can give is to distract yourself with something else, I find that having so much to do at my house helps me keep my mind off the proposal. And when I’m at work when it’s slow and there’s nothing to do, I find it’s helpful to come on here to distract me.
Oh and happy birthday!
