The last week or so SO has been unusually attentive and sweet. On Monday, he told me he had a surprise planned for Thursday and to keep my calendar open. So last night, he gets the most dressed up I’ve ever seen, except for a wedding. We got dinner on our way to the surprise, which I paid for. He thanked me, and I said “thanks for whatever is later.” He said it cost a lot more than dinner and the wheels in my head started turning.
It took a half hour to get to where we were going. I kept telling myself, “you’re not getting engaged. You’re not getting engaged.” But the excitement was there. Well, we finally pull up to a theater. SO had bought tickets for a Christmas show. That was the surprise. He was so proud of himself. I did an excellent job of not letting on that I was disappointed. And I really can’t be. I’ve been asking him to plan dates. And he did. Just not the surprise I was hoping for.
So here I sit, still not engaged, waiting for our new timeline – the end of March. 😐
Edit: I should add, I pretty much knew it wasn’t happening and was okay with it. I just got caught up. Like I said in another post, 2012 has sucked from a personal standpoint and I’m ready for it to be over. So I’m sort of glad it didn’t happen last night?
