Today marks four years since I first met Boyfriend or Best Friend, although our official anniversary isn’t until April. He’s really good at knowing the April date and still regularly brings me flowers on our ‘monthiversary’, but is pretty much clueless about this being a date of significance. We were cuddling on the couch last night and I told him about the date and suddenly he got very serious and very ‘clingy’. I don’t know how else to describe it, but it was like I had flipped a switch.
Later that night as he was leaving my place, he was still really lovey-dovey and serious. Really seemed like something was on his mind. He gave me the biggest hug and whispers to me “We’re ready, right?”
We were also leaving on vacation today and I’m still not sure whether he was referring to being ready for vacation or ready for the big question. I just looked him square in the eye and told him we were definitely ready. This just resulted in another giant bear hug that he didn’t seem to want to let go of and the occasional letting go just to stare at me.
Tonight, we were saying good night and it was more of the same not wanting to let go and just staring at me with these questions.
I’ve mentioned before that I’m hoping he will propose on this trip (we went ring shopping a few weeks ago). If he is planning something, he’s obviously terrified and I feel so bad for the poor guy. I wrote a little while ago that I’m afraid that I’ll ruin this vacation with anticipation. At this point though, I’m barely even thinking about it cause I’m trying to keep him calm.
I dunno what my point is here, but I have to get out the crazy.

Awww! This is so exciting! I still remember the day I met my SO (even though I never thought he was going to become my boyfriend!), too. This sounds really promising…and I’m jealous you’re going on vacation!

Get your nails done girlfriend, it sounds like he’s considering a proposal very soon.

Aww your boyfriend sounds so sweet! I think you certainly have a right to be suspicious and I hope you get a proposal on your upcoming trip! It’s been a slow proposal month after the excitement of the holidays. Where are you guys headed on vacation? What kind of rings were you looking at? Did he pick one out on his own or did you pick out one together?

Oh, and the airline also lost our luggage today. I’ve never seen him so nervous about his suitcase before. You don’t think he was silly enough to actually check an engagement ring, do you? We did get our bags back after much confusion, but he was quite intent on getting them back asap!
We looked at a bunch of rings, but we left the store with one particular ring circled in the store’s flyer and the saleslady’s card. I know he didn’t have the money at the time, but he got a bonus at work this week that would have easily covered the ring we chose.

My fiance proposed on vacation, he told me the trip went like this ‘pre-vacation’ – nerves, knots in stomach, ‘post-vacation’ – fun. He was also overly concerned about going through airport security, I later found out he had the ring stashed in a camera bag and was scared they were going to pull it out in front of me and go “what’s this!?!” but I’m sure they knew what was up. He also said he kept hiding the ring in different places everyday to make sure I didn’t find it, I thought this was adorable. Sooo if your SO is exhibiting any of the above signs (and it sounds like he is :D!), I say it’s likely to happen, just stay relaxed and fun since he’s probably a gigantic ball of nerves right now.
