- 7 years ago
around a year ago, SO and I were talking about how his parents were dating for 5 years before they got married, and he said that was too long.
lately he’s been joking that he’ll make me wait 7 years. i know he’s kidding, but it was starting to bother me because he’s been saying it so much lately. so last night i asked him, “you’re not really going to make me wait 7 years, right?” at first he was being all coy with a twinkle in his eye and saying “maybe”. but after some prodding, i got him to admit he wouldn’t make me wait that long (phew!). i didn’t think “less than 7 years” was good enough, so i said, “less than 5?” and he said, “you don’t want me to give you an actual date!” and i agreed with him but i said i needed to know it was less than 5. he said “okay, less than 5, but that’s all [of the information] you’re getting from me!”
so… sometime in the next 3 years? i guess? i’m hoping the coyness and eye twinkle mean it’ll be sooner than i think it will.
dreamer me thinks sometime between my birthday (dec 5) and the end of our cruise in january. (he hasn’t asked me what i want for my birthday, which is very odd, especially since it is in 2 weeks! and he said he needs to go “shopping” tomorrow for a flashlight (which he actually needs) but he is giving himself way too much time to only get a flashlight. and he meant to surprise me with a balcony room for our cruise, but he asked me to look at the reservation for something else… sorry, i’m ramlbing).
realistic me thinks toward the end of next year.
all of this is so confusing! i wish he would be more specific!!!! i guess basically i want to know if it will happen before the end of 2012, but i’m not allowed to ask for any further details!
