So, it’s strange. I’m reporting that there is nothing to report. I’m writing to say that there is no movement towards engagement or away from it. In some strange way, there is nothing. Usually my feelings about the waiting change and I want to vent about it or whatever. Then I’m hopeful and then back down to fretting. Lately, it’s just….there. I am waiting and currently there is nothing more to say. It’s rather hard to describe. It seems like it’s a fact that it will happen….and ok there you go.
It’s just bizarre.
On a cute note though. My boyfriend will be getting a mangagement ring after he proposes to me. He’s only tried on rings once and he was super nervous and just had each ring (total of like 3) on for about 5 seconds. It was a situation of “Oh yup. this one looks nice. Yeah…this one looks nice..ok yeah I like this one.”
The other day we were in a Middle Eastern type store. One that sells incense, belly dancing clothes, little statues of Buddah, etc. They had some cheap decorative men’s rings. I walked by them and he said to himself quietly “Oh…well I could even just do something like one of these here.” I’m pretty sure he was just kind of talking to himself. I heard him and leaned over and assured him that he totally could if he wanted to.

Stupid question I am sure but… what’s a management ring?

@Mrs Hedgehog:It’s like an engagement ring for a man. Becoming increasingly popular, though!

@Tunacupcakes: I dont think I could better describe how I feel right now too- I feel exactly the same way…Im just sort of waiting for the ring because I know he has it, and intends on proposing sometime in the next several months- I have no idea when, so Im just sitting here. Thats it really, no real information on any new developments…Im literally, just waiting.
It IS wierd- its kinda like your in limbo, or in a waiting room, or something. Time is moving far too slowly IMO as well 😛 Might as well cue the elevator music for all I know. Its just a very funny feeling, and sometimes I feel bummed about it because Im like….why is he waiting to do it? Whats taking so long? blargh!- And then I regain my senses 😛
Lovely news about his ring tho 🙂

@Tunacupcakes: I’m feeling pretty much the same way. Almost apathetic, though. Maybe even bordering on “I don’t care.” Curse those stages of waiting!
I think it’s really cute that he’s looking for an “Man-gagement” ring though. 🙂 Hopefully the time will keep flying like it has been. Each day brings it closer!
Thank you for the update! 🙂

@Bellanouva: lol at the elevator music. Wouldn’t it be great if that just played where ever you walked to show your life stage. Like in a commercial. 🙂 This is literally waiting. I can’t pin it down on how it’s different than waiting…but it does feel different. It’s a very stagnant feeling.
@Torrid: Oh I’ve done the apathetic thing too, but I’m not even feeling that! I dunno. I’m weirding myself out. lol I also thought it was so cute that he looked at some rings for himself all on his own. And time IS flying by. It is getting scarily close to June. I swear yesterday was March. Before I know it, we’ll be in Fall, my favorite time of year. Really the only thing holding him back at this point is needing to save up the $$$. He physically has enough, but he also wants some cushioning in his bank account.
Your engagement is getting really close! Do you feel like it’s kind of….creeping up to you and then all of a sudden BAM! you will be engaged?

that is so cute! actually, a mangagement ring is tradition in some cultures. An Austrian friend and her fiance both wear matching rings as a sign of their pledge to each other (during engagement). What a sweet idea!
