hi all, thanks for checking in 🙂
It just occurred to me that next week is Valentines Day! Time is flying ugh. So…a few strange things have happened in the last few weeks, but no proposal yet. It would appear that he has tried a few times, but is hung up on perfect circumstances, i’m really not sure!
the first instance is unmistakable, as he told me. We went to a local touristy spot that he’s been wanting to take me to, but it ended up being a bust. Most of the things were closed for the winter, so there wasn’t much to do except walk around… which we were not dressed for, and it was quite cold that day. So we talked about coming back in the spring/summer. I did notice he seemed to want to linger around a bit more, as he kept saying “but isn’t it kind of cool to look at?” etc and yes it was, but i wanted to get going and do something else with our day off together! I didn’t think anything of it until aout 3 or 4 days later when we were at his parents’ house for a dinner party, and his dad made a joke about how my boyfriend needs to buy me something pretty and proceeded o wiggle his ring finger. On the car ride home my boyfriend reveals that he had wanted to propose that previous saturday when we were out, but that it didn’t go as plan with the weather. I said to him you had the ring with you?! And he said yes and I started crying lol Partly because I felt I had ruined it without wanting to linger because I was cold and just wanted to come back later in the season, and partly because if he had done it it would have been a HUGE surprise as that wasn’t on my radar at all. And the wine didn’t help emotions, ha.
He felt bad that it hurt me, and when we got back to the house hugged me and started talking about our first kiss, and he was sort of slow dancing with me in the kitchen. He has sweet moments like this so not super unusual, and it all seemed fairly natural until we sat on the couch and he asked me something like “i feel like i need to ask you if something is ok.” I was confused at first until he sort of said no, you deserve something special. I pretended to act dumb, but he was clearly contemplating proposing right then and there.
Since then he’s asked me if we bundle up enough would i want to go on a walk at a nearby park. Our dog had an emergency trip to the vet last saturday (hes ok now) and so that took place of our planned little hike.
I’m going nuts here honestly… it seems this should’ve happened a handful of times in January! I wouldn’t have minded him proposing in the living room, but him vaguely asking for permission didn’t make me want to say yes! Do it! Especially since it stemmed from me being sad from the previous cancelled proposal. Also… i feel like my radar is up now everytime he asks me to do something, like now I’ll know when it’s coming. When that day at the cold, disappointing location would have been a wonderful surprise and a funny story lol
Maybe hes planning something for Valentine’s Day, I”m not sure. When i set that for my deadline of talking about getting engaged, I honestly didn’t think it would be down to the wire!
Anyways, that is the latest updates
