SO is horrible at surprises, and he’s started accidentally dropping hints that he’s proposing around Christmas…I don’t want to ruin the surprise if he is, and I don’t want to tell too many people if it doesn’t happen…so I’m posting here!
He keeps talking about how it won’t be for a while (like at least a year from now) when I bring it up, but when he was tipsy the other night he told me he was going to blow my mind at Christmas and that he had to wait to give me my gift until we did our Christmas exchange with our close friends. We both know what we’re getting each other for Christmas already, and he knows he’s probably getting his gift way early because it’s a replacement/upgrade for something that’s not working too well right now. Whenever I talk about planning trips or buying things, he says he wants to wait until the new year. And then today (while he’s visiting with his family for the weekend) he texted me asking my ring size for our FUTURE plans (emphasis his).
So. I’m not positive because he’s been really insistent on waiting for a while (we’ve been together for 3 years and just moved in together a few months ago), but he’s really bad at surprises and signs are pointing to a proposal.
I’m not going to mention anything to him – it’s not a big deal if that’s not his plan because I know it will happen in time and we’re still young (22 & 24). But at the same time…I wouldn’t mind 😉 I was already thinking about it, but today when he asked my ring size that clinched it in my mind.
So…fingers crossed for a Christmas proposal, but worst case I still have an amazing man who can’t wait to marry me someday 🙂 He’s told everyone besides me his proposal plan already, so I’m willing to wait!
