Ok, I hate this feeling… Where everything your b/f does, you think it could be ‘ring’ related, or engagement related. Yesterday my b/f emailed me at work saying: “I feel like a$$. Came home early.” I was concered because he NEVER comes home early from work if he’s sick. He’s very stubborn sometimes and will go to work even if he feels like poo. Anyways, I replied asking if everything was ok. He responded very strangely: “Not sure. Stomach is doing sommersaults…”. Right away, I thought – ‘Oooh! I wonder if something is going on!’
…And I get home and he’s actually sick in bed. I felt terrible. He’s home again today too. I really hope he feels better for the Thanksgiving weekend coming up. But I feel awful that it has actually come down to this, where I think EVERYTHING he says or does related to an engagement. Grr. It’s frustrating.
Thanks for reading my vent 🙂

Oh hun, I’ve been there. Take comfort knowing that you’re not the only one out there thinking the same things! The “Waiting” section of WeddingBee wouldn’t be as popular if there weren’t thousands of us in the same boat. 😉
Look at it this way… he needed you and he wanted you to be there with him. That says a lot in my book!

I feel your pain…
Last Friday the Boyfriend or Best Friend called me around the time he normally gets off work. He usually calls me when he is leaving work. Well, then I hear the buzzing of the dryer in the background…so he was at home. I come to find out he only worked 1/2 day. So of course my mind starts thinking, “maybe he went ring shopping while I was at work!” but I don’t think that was the case. He was supposed to have the whole day off but went in for part of it. I don’t think he went anywhere else after that. I get that feeling all the time, though–like if I am busy doing something I am hoping that he is out shopping, but then I later find out that he just played video games or went to one of his friends’ houses or hung out with his little nephew. Always a bummer 😛

Every time Boyfriend or Best Friend is a little late coming home from work, I always wonder, maybe, juuuuust maaaaaaybe, he’s gone ring shopping? It’s terrible that we’ve all come to these conclusions, and all it does is set ourselves up for disappointment. Silly fellas, if only they would JUST DO IT!

awww I’m sorry!!!
So I see that you’re from Canada and I had NO idea that canadians celebrated Thanksgiving too!

Yup. Boyfriend or Best Friend and I have different days off, so anytime he’s off I get super curious about what he’s done all day. Then I see how many shows are gone from the DVR, probably a couple receipts from errands run etc and get bummed he didn’t go ring shopping.

Been there. In the weeks leading up to the actual proposal I was a big ol bag of nerves. Anytime there was anything out of the ordinary I’d get butterflies in my stomach and wonder “why is he doing that? Does this have anything to do with my precious???” It was freaking exhausting. Turns out that whole time he actually had the ring, just hadn’t given it to me yet. Arg.
I was stuck on the Thanksgiving thing too, not realizing you’re Canadian. I’m thinking “wtf? he’s got a stomach bug, I doubt he’s gonna be out of commission for two months!!” Heh.

Its okay, everytime my SO says he is going to the bank, I picture him getting money and making payments on my engagement ring.

Oooooh! I totally feel this way! He said he has a important package coming soon and wouldn’t tell me about it, no matter how much I asked. It’s probably some electronic thing, so no need to get my hopes up.lol

ohhh I feel your pain! I try not to think too much about the things he does out of character… that said, he has been told for a while now that he will never manage to surprise me with a proposal given that he isnt the most romantic guy, so anytime he is super sweet I think “ohhh maybe its soon!”
I hope your boy is feeling better!
