@lovelymuse: Hello Again, Lovelymuse!
Here’s my update and I’ll try to keep it short. I’ve waited for my SO to go to bed because he’s starting to get curious what I’m writing about on here and in the event he is planning something I don’t want to ruin what might be a one day surprise!
Around the time that I wrote this post, and my SO wanted in on the action (as you already know lol), I got a text from my father. He texted something like ‘Hey whats up, I’ve been watching the Pirates’ and then immediately ‘Sorry that might have been a replay’. At first I didn’t think anything of it and just wrote back ‘Been watching them too’. Pittsburgh Pirates are in the playoffs this year, and I’m not really a baseball fan, my SO is and the Pirates are his team. I remember thinking ‘Is this text meant for me?’ as my dad and I NEVER TALK about baseball lol.
Fast forward to today, Pirates are playing again, and my SO gets a text so I hand him his phone. He checks his message, and I very slyly try to see who he is texting idk why but I just did….IT WAS MY DAD!! Had no idea that my SO and my dad have been texting at all or had that kind of relationship lol…..
I’m trying hard to not get my hopes up but it’s a curious turn of events. I posted on the Shut It Up pact that my SO and I talked about being methodical in our appraoch to our future, and on a different post that he’s interviewing like crazy and it looks like he’s gonna be finishing school, which is his reason for the hold up on us getting engaged. I told him that I opened up a savings account to save for the wedding to show him I can be methodical too, now it looks like he’s building a rapport with my dad…and he’s made it clear to me and you, my new friend haha, that he will be picking out the ring himself and making it a surprise to me. That’s my update!
PS-I still think it’s VERY romantic that you had input about your ring, and I am soooo excited to hear that your Boyfriend or Best Friend has talked to your father as well. WOOHOOO!! You know it’s coming but you don’t know when, and I’m sure it’s going to be perfect when it does. I think that it would take the edge off a little bit because you know its coming. I would think of it like an anniversary dinner…maybe you don’t always know what your Boyfriend or Best Friend has planned but you know it will be sweet and cute…the only difference is that you don’t know the day so there will still be a surprise!!
Good luck and congrats! And, thanks for being cool about my SO posting on here, haven’t seen that done to many times before but I’ll take it as a positive that my SO knows I’m on here, doesn’t get weird or intimidated haha!
