- Wedding: September 2012
I’ve also been lurking on here, reading all of your posts and understanding completely how it’s like to wait wait and WAIT.
I’ve been officially waiting since beginning of October. Boyfriend had talked to me last December, saying he’d save up for a ring and propose to me by the end of the Summer…but..here we are, the end of October and still no ring. We even went on a huge trip to Egypt, Grece, Turkey and Italy this September and after seeing a happy couple hop off a gondola in Venice..newly engaged..it just sorta broke my heart.
I know it’s because I’m undecisive and he had first thought to pick out the ring himself but then gave me the choice to decide on which ring I wanted (WOOHOO!!)..and it took my until the end of September to give him my final choice. He joked around first, saying he’d wait a while because I’m surely going to change my mind..but I didn’t. I love the ring I chose and I’m sooo excited to see it for the first time!! —He obviously realized that I was serious about my choice since I stopped obsessingly looking at rings on the web (i know..lol).
Two weeks ago I went on his laptop to check my email…and for some reason his history window was open. I couldn’t resist and looked at a few..and…omg…I saw a “checkout” page and steps 2-4 for the final payment! Of which, of course, is the exact same site that I had given him the link to in September!!! I was so happy!! Heck, I even danced with the cat!! haha
Anyway..since then, he’s been acting real strange!! He keeps calling himself my future husband and saying how he wants to marry me…he even hinted that the US currency went down recently so it’s the perfect timing to buy me that wedding ring set!!! Which is weird..I’ve been forcing myself not to mention anything about marriage or rings since he wants me to “forget” (haha!) and surprise me =) It seems to have a positive effect on him!!
This weekend he asked me what kind of proposal i was expecting and if i had any other expectations..which I found got me 1 step closer to the actual proposal!!! The night after i sweetly told him that I secretely wished that it would happen before xmas! He apparently found that adorable 😛 Go me!!
Yesterday he came home early and gave me bright pink flowers like I’ve always wanted..saying he knows i love them..and he made dinner and was extra lovey dovey.
Soo..what do you girls think?? Will he really purpose before Xmas??? None of my friends can relate to this and find me absolutely paranoid and obsessed with all of this..lol…Oh! We’ve been together for 2 years and a few months…living together for 1 year and a half =) I’m 24 and he’s 29, going on 30 in December…
