what do i do with this?….he hasn’t proposed to me yet. i do think he will and i do hope that he does. we have a ring already (family antique) but it’s in the drawer till he asks me. i suppose eventually he would have had to tell me otherwise everybody is going to start asking me wedding questions and i’m sitting here over in girlfriend land trying not to think about it so he can actually surprise me with a proposal….all while, all along he is engaged already!….to me but i’m not engaged yet!? go figure! 🙂 i do not know how long this has been going on. and i know he wants to but he has needed to put some things in order first for himself to do that. he is there though! woohoo with some padding time needed… and he got to that place before we knew it.
so all of these people in his surrounding world all think we are getting married? 🙂 now before you get mad let me tell you he’s the sweetest most amazingly handsome and talented man i’ve ever met. I mean i’m completely flattered but to hear that news well i was completely shocked! i kissed him told him i loved him and thought it was really sweet. i didn’t really know how to react. I don’t know, it kind of was sweet? and it made me happy in a really odd and unexpected way just to know that he was so certain. but i was lost myself on what was going on. then he said it again in a sentence after that using my name talking about me, to me and reffered to me as his fiance again with the biggest smile like he loved it so so much!
but now today i woke up and i’m realizing what he has done! oh my. we have just about the craziest realtionship i have ever seen in my entire life. ei ei ei. and it just keeps getting better and better. I hope this means what i think it means…just not how i expected but hey he managed to surprise me right?!!!
everybody is free to a drink tonight in my boyfriends honor! maybe i should make him something as a congratulations present for getting engaged? or maybe just a simple cheers after the kids go to bed. oh my. help me think of how to handle this! i am going to marry the *&$% out of him!!! i love him so. and it’s basically the opposite of something i could really get that mad over. i do want that too i just wish i was celebrating with him! i can’t ever imagine him making up stories about a make believe proposal or anything so i think if they really asked he would just tell them he hasn’t done it yet. so do i ask him more about this or do I just leave it at that and let him untangle this on his own? so lost. but probably glowing today anyway! i kind of like it…it actually sort of cracks me up. i guess i have absolutly nothing to worry about my super fabulous boyfriend wants me to be his wife! I think i’m off to the liquor store and i don’t ever even drink! cheers!

That’s certianly a reverse of the usual order of things but, hey, it definitely shows promise!
I think I’d bring it up again and say, ‘ya know, before people start asking me when’s the date, shouldn’t you ask me, first?’ and see where it goes from there. Just keep it light-hearted.
Enjoy your cocktail!

Haha that is too funny! He better propose soon before he gets everyone very confused, lol.

Haha, I’d tell him to man up and make it happen!

I read this and while I thought it was sweet, I do not understand why would he be telling everyone you are engaged when he hasn’t proposed.
Surely that would make things awkward when you do get engaged and people will think you already are?
Oh well, I guess this is his way of building up to asking, congrats!

it’s all people i haven’t met yet…at his school i am assuming which he is about to graduate, and at his new job now too. He is very personable and I guess he just thinks of me of his future wife rather than his girlfriend. i don’t like saying boyfriend myself but i do because that’s where we’re at. but I don’t think that he really thought of what was going to happen if he did that until after he did it? Or maybe he did know? He said “everyone”. But after he blurted it out to me he asked me if it was okay? like he liked saying it and telling people. we are to that point and it is going to happen soon or well i give it a couple more months to when we first met for him to do his thing. it’s a 3 day weekend now so we have some time to figure this out i guess. or for him to. i’m not sure there is anything i can do other than to just tell him to tell them that he slipped the word out on accident? but wow so glad it is on his mind so apparent! I’ve known him for 13 years. I doubt that he would lose his job over it and he’s not a liar so i don’t see this carrying on for long. oh my !
I only had one cocktail lastnight. I didn’t talk about it either.

Maybe he’s planning something this weekend?

i don’t think so but he is missing right now. i think he’s making camping plans with the neighbors. i’m going to not think about it!

yeah nope. I knew he wouldn’t though, right now isn’t a good time. and glad that wasn’t it for a million other reasons! But whenever it happens it happens, I am not worried about it. I do hope that he does it though! I’d be very excited. and I’m still not sure how to feel about his news either…I guess it’s okay everyone thinks i’m his fiance? we can just take it as the days come i suppose.

Not to be debbie downer, but just be careful how you move forward with this info if you actually want a proposal. And he should also understand how difficult this will make your day to day life if he doesn’t actually propose soon. People will be hounding YOU and not him about wedding details and demanding to see a ring. It will be cute at first, then you’re going to start to resent him for putting you in that situation.
But if you don’t need a proposal – congrats! STart planning your wedding!
