I’m still fairly new to WB and I made my original thread about how my SO and I looked at rings,(upon his suggestion) and we ultimately left the store empty handed. That was about 2 weeks ago.
Saturday: On Saturday we had dinner and I shared with him my confusion about how he insisted on going to view rings and bring up marriage and how I never really thought about it and how he’s making me feel like I’m forcing an engagement on him. My ignorance was literally my bliss. Two weeks ago I was only thinking about our big move and never an engagement. Now I can’t stop obsessing even if I wanted to. Once I shared my thoughts, he tells me that it’s just a huge step/commitment and I counter with “So is purchasing a home together”. The conversation basically ended with me telling him I’m not going to pressure him into doing something he’s not ready to do, but I reminded him, that he initiated the conversation and I”m already making a huge commitment/step by uprooting myself to move to a different state with him so he can follow his dreams.
Sunday: It was a pretty basic Sunday for us, basically cleaning and grocery shopping. I was making dinner/doing laundry when I noticed that he was in his game room being extremely quiet, unlike the obnoxiously loud videogames that are usually blaring, lol! I asked if he were ok and he responded with, “fine” so I went about the rest of my chores. Later on last night, we were watching Walking Dead and he left to go get a drink from the kitchen. His phone buzzed and lit up and showed that his e-ring order confirmation from a jewelry site, to my absolute shock. When he returned I told him he had a message and then he proceeded to look and then take his phone and left the room. So many emotions are coursing through me, shock, love, confusion, excitement, worry…. I’m basically overwhelmed with them, particularly excitment and worry. There’s nothing more I’d want than to be with my SO forever, but I’m feeling worry because I’m wondering if he decided to do this on his own, or if he felt forced. So to my fellow Bee’s, my questions are what is your first reaction reading this? And, do you believe I could have led him to purchasing the e-ring? Thanks in advance!
