as I’ve posted here before, my BF and I are moving in together next month. We both consider this to be a step closer to engagement. However, my BF doesn’t want to give me a timeline as he wants the proposal to be a complete surprise, so I have absolutely no idea when it’s going to happen.
We’re both really excited and things are great between us 😀
Here is the thing. Last weekend my BF told me that he has been given a quite large sum of money as inheritance from his grandfather, and how he wants to spend them on something useful. He said he wants to put the money towards a house, as we are planning to buy together at some point in the next couple of years.
Of course, being a waiting bee, I couldn’t help thinking that now I know for definite that he has enough money to buy me a ring (and he already knows that I don’t want an expensive one). Now that he has mentioned the money, I keep wondering all the time if he has bought a ring and is hiding it in his house somewhere. How do I keep myself from not going crazy wondering if he’s bought a ring??

Ooh I can see how that would be driving you crazy!
Well, just because he has the money, doesn’t mean he has bought it. Maybe he has just set it aside for a later date?
You said you are moving in together as the next step towards engagement, so I would give yourself at least 6 months to adjust to living together before possibly expecting one.
Just enjoy taking this next step together – living together is HUGE and can be such a fun experience. Try to put the ring out of your mind and enjoy your time with him.

i hate the “did he buy it” feeling. i have been givin the go ahead to plan everything (idk if iit was just to pacify my time though) and now that wee are caught up on bills i started searching threw drawers. i know he wouldnt hide it in the house but ya never know lol. so i was talking to my friend today and i was like so we are haveing lnch at the venue today, we really just sat in the parking lot eating taco bell but what ever. i told her im sick of setting him up to propose and him not doing it. so she texted him saying how happy it would make me to be officially engaged with a ring not just saying it. he said he was going to talk to my mom when she flew out here in a few weeks to visit but she canceled her trip. so he hasnt asked her yet so in theory he has a ring already right? lol

@CupcakeLove: You’re right, and I really am super excited about moving in together, so that’s actually taken away a lot of my “waiting impatience”. I try not to think about it too much, but it’s hard not to, especially when he makes little comments about our future wedding. Like yesterday, he made a comment about “our wedding photos”. I think he likes tormenting me by making me wait, haha
