- Wedding: July 2016
I’m sure there are already threads on this subject, but mine is a little different since we started the process of designing a ring together…
So my boyfriend and I visited a jewellery store a couple months ago. He encouraged me to try on engagement rings, and we discussed with the jeweller getting a custom piece made. I gave them my email address, and when they contacted me a few days later, he said he wanted to take over the discussion so I forwarded it to him. A couple days after that, he opened his laptop and it was open to engagement rings (he seemed a little embarrassed, but went with it) and asked me which design was closest to what I wanted. I also saw that the link it was open to was from an email from the jewellery store. So he was definitely working on the ring.
We often discuss our future, babies, etc. We even agreed on the location for where our ceremony and reception will be held without officially starting our wedding planning.
But just last week, I made a comment about our wedding and he said something along the lines of he’s not ready yet and doesn’t want to get married for several years. This really threw me off because he’s never had that attitude toward marriage before. Since then, he has stopped talking about marriage completely, when before, he would bring it up as often as I would. But – he still seems interested when I show him cool cakes, etc. that I see on facebook.
We have a trip coming up very soon, and I think his plan is to pop the question there. Just wondering if guys often act like they don’t want to get married right before the proposal to throw their girlfriend off and make sure its a surprise? What are your experiences ladies?
