- Wedding: July 2016
I was going to make this post earlier today, but for different reasons than I am now.
I’m the type of person who believes that if you don’t like something, change it. So I started feeling kind of down today after looking at pretty ring pictures and thinking about how long I have to wait until I have one, and I realized that even though I don’t necessarily want the Boyfriend or Best Friend to propose now, it would be nice of him to do a romantic gesture every once in a while. So I was thinking about how I could turn that around and make it happen (like either find a way to hint for him to do something special, or just do something special for him and hope he reciprocates).
Actually, the original reason I was making this post was to ask you bees if you had any ideas for either getting or creating romantic moments/gestures for your loved one. (By the way, feel free to sill post any ideas you have, I’m sure this isn’t a one-time feeling lol)
Later, quite unexpectedly, he surprised me with just the sweet gesture I was craving. Warning, this might sound silly, but it’s still special to me. The Boyfriend or Best Friend and I like to play boardgames. It’s quite a hobby of ours. He has this thing where he like to buy a game or 2 per month. I’m not quite as obsessed as he is with buying more games, so I can wait longer in between shopping sprees. Boyfriend or Best Friend understands this, but still sometimes tries to convinve me to buy some.
He’s been trying to decide which game(s) to buy himself as his July purchases. This month I’ve been running low on cash, and haven’t thought at all about buying anything of that nature (which is ironic since I’ve been online shopping looking at all the pretty things I can’t have, which is probably what got me down in the first place lol).
Anyways, we were on the phone trying to decide what we’re doing tonight, and he said he wants to go to Barnes and Noble (they have a decent game section). A little pulling and tugging trying to figure out if he wants me to come with him and he came out with the surprise that he’s going to buy me a boardgame because he knows I haven’t been able to afford one, and probably won’t for a while. He picked out a game that a few months ago I really wanted when we were in another store.
I’ll aww for myself lol I started tearing with him on the phone. Even though it’s something small, it made me really happy and appreciative. He didn’t even know that I was feeling down today, but it’s like he sensed it anyway =]
Does anyone have similar stories or any other ideas on doing something small but special for your SO?
